At the office of Dr. Daryl Yorek, our friendly, dedicated, and energetic team is committed to working with you and your family to create a positive experience every time you visit our practice.
We welcome you with warm smiles to our practice!
Hi, I’m Kelly. As Dr Yorek’s Treatment Coordinator, l am the person that “walks” you through your Orthodontic Consultation and helps you begin your orthodontic journey.
Prior to becoming a Treatment Coordinator, I enjoyed a teaching career in Art and Special Education. For many years I taught private art classes, did graphic and interior design work and art therapy. When I needed to make a career change Dr Yorek encouraged me to join his team. I already had an interest and sincere appreciation for Orthodontics since having treatment as an adult by Dr Yorek. Orthodontic treatment was a milestone I had long waited for after feeling self-conscious about my smile since childhood.
I truly love my work and find it rewarding to see how beautiful smiles really do change lives. It is a real pleasure to get to know our patients and their families and share this journey with them. I like to use my education background to share the wonderful world of orthodontics and sleep apnea with our patients. I’m proud to be part of a fantastic professional staff who make our office a welcoming and comforting experience for our patients. I’m especially fond of one of our team members, my faithful companion Jackson. It’s a special bonus to be able to share Jackson with our patients who adore him.
I’m a proud advocate for children’s causes, I have been a CASA worker, a former board member for the Children’s Museum, I’ve volunteered in many school activities and participate in mentoring programs for young adults. My boys claim my legacy of feeding kids, especially homemade baked goods is huge.
After raising my three wonderful sons I now have more time for my many passions. I enjoy creating art, reading, gardening, traveling, cooking, spoiling my grandson “Jack”, volunteering and raising chickens.
Office Mascot, Greeter and Comforter
Jackson was born on a miniature horse farm in Texas in 2009. His father was Champion Wire Fox Terrier “Aristocrat”. He won Kelly’s heart immediately with his happy, easy going personality and continues to win hearts wherever he goes. (Even those of “Postal workers” and UPS workers) When not greeting and entertaining our patients he spends his free time chasing Frisbees and squirrels, taking walks on the beach, riding in the car and napping. His favorite treats are string cheese and Sojo’s dog treats.
