DesiRay is a Schedule Coordinator and Social Media Coordinator for Dr. Runnels Orthodontics.
She was born and raised in Albuquerque, NM and moved to Florida with her mother 6 years ago. Some of the things she values most is family, her 4 dogs (Veda, Bodhi, Zuni, and Chaco), time spent outside (preferably hiking/camping) and her husband. She was previously a patient of Dr. Runnels for 2 years and is now excited to be a part of the staff 4 years later. Coming to the dentist as a young girl was something she thought to be scary , but Dr. Runnels and his staff quickly changed her perception and made her feel like family. She believes that every patient, no matter how old, should always feel excited/comfortable, like she did, to go through treatment here at Dr. Runnels Orthodontics and begin their journey to a new, gorgeous smile.
