Meet Our Administrative Team

Beside every successful dentist is a great administrative team.

Charisse at Crabtree Dental
Treatment and Financial Coordinator

Charisse has over 25 years of experience in dental administration. She coordinates treatment plans for our patients and has been responsible for the insurance and billing functions of our practice for nearly 20 years. She has attended many continuing education courses in her career, which has contributed to her expertise in dental insurance.

Charisse was raised in Rayne, Louisiana, and is now a Katy resident with three grown children. In her spare time she enjoys cooking, hiking, reading, and watching movies.

Stefanie at Crabtree Dental
Patient Relations Coordinator

Stefanie is a certified medical office specialist with an associate’s degree in computer science. She has over a decade of administrative and customer service experience and has been part of the Crabtree Dental team since 2010. Stefanie conducts patient checkouts, verifies insurance, and cheerfully answers your calls throughout the day.

She is originally from Corpus Christi and now calls Eagle Lake home. Stefanie loves spending time with her family, which typically means sports are involved, so it’s a good thing she’s an avid football and baseball fan!

Administrative Assistant

Lorena has an associate’s degree in accounting and nearly a decade of experience as a dental administrator. Her responsibilities are primarily related to billing and accounting, but because of her quick mind and eagerness to help she may be the person assisting you when you place a call to our office. She is also a wonderful resource for our patients who prefer to speak Spanish.

Lorena was born in Punta Arenas, Chile, and has lived in the Houston area for over 15 years. She is quite the handywoman and has completed a number of home improvement projects herself since her home flooded during Hurricane Harvey. When she’s not painting or tiling her home she is likely sewing, crafting, or gardening.

Talyn at Crabtree Dental
Assistant to the Practice Manager

Talyn is a transplant to Texas and has joined the Crabtree Dental team as assistant to the practice manager. She received a bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University and spent the last several years working in the technology industry. Her organizational skills and knack for problem solving make her an asset on many projects, but her primary responsibilities include marketing, design, and optimizing office efficiency.

She grew up in Utah and Colorado and loved the idea of going on outdoor adventures but no one in her family shared her aspirations. She finally met her match in Dr. Colby Crabtree and together they enjoy backpacking, paddle boarding, hiking, and camping.
