Meet Our Staff

Certifications: SmartClip, CPR

Julie takes care of our office’s marketing, advertising, human resources, electronic communications, and keeps in contact with referring offices in the community.

“My dental career began in 1980 where I worked for a general dentist. In 1995, I joined Dr. Watson, and he taught me so much over the years,” explains Julie. “Working in orthodontics is great because I get to see how happy our patients are when they see their final results. It is priceless! We are very fortunate to have wonderful patients in our practice.”

Julie’s parents retired here so she decided to leave the beaches of California for Texas, where she’s been now for 18 years. She loves working in her yard and walking with her dog, Daisy. Julie's passions are cross-stitching and going to Zumba classes.

Certifications: SmartClip, CPR

Michelle has worked with Dr. Watson for 18 years as his appointment coordinator. She greets patients, answers incoming calls, and coordinates appointments to meet our patients’ needs.

“I enjoy talking with parents and patients and getting to know them better,” says Michelle. “It’s my goal to make them feel comfortable whenever they’re in our office. Everyone on our team is great, including Dr. Watson.”

Michelle and her husband Dan have a son, Hart, and a daughter, Haley. She enjoys spending time with family, especially when watching her son race 4-wheelers and compete in gymnastics and her daughter cheer at Rudder High School.
