Simply Smiles Team

We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.



Office Manager

Steve holds a bachelor’s degree in broadcast communications and has 23 years of experience as manager of Simply Smiles Orthodontics. He makes our office run smoothly by overseeing scheduling, drawing up contracts, taking care of IT, and handling patient communications. Steve genuinely believes the team at Simply Smiles is the best, and not just because he’s married to Dr. Julien! He appreciates everyone’s hard work and dedication to providing the best possible care to patients.

Steve and Dr. Julien have been married for 25 years and have three children, as well as dogs and cats. In his leisure time, Steve is involved with Boy Scouting, gardening, carpentry, and following the WSU Cougar football team! Go Cougs!



Treatment Coordinator

Our treatment coordinator, Dana, serves as the practice liaison for patients to ensure optimal customer satisfaction. She received her certificate for medical office management in 1995 and decided after 20 years to obtain her license as a registered dental assistant, which she received in 2016. Dana uses her vast experience to help patients explore the wonderful world of orthodontics. Her goal is to make our patients’ orthodontic journey a breeze right from the beginning. 

Originally from Southern California, Dana relocated to Dallas from Las Vegas a half dozen years ago. She has a 20-year-old son named Elijah who keeps her on her toes. In her spare time, Dana enjoys spending time with friends, shopping, and going out to eat.



Clinical Coordinator

Veronica assists Dr. Julien with treatment. Whether it is a simple color change or the day the braces come off, Veronica is by your side throughout your journey here at our office. Her favorite part of her job is revealing a patient’s new smile. She finds it rewarding to see each person light up with confidence once he or she sees that new look.

Veronica recently relocated to McKinney from the California Bay Area. In her spare time, you can find her spending time with family, watching sports, or lounging on the coast of California.


Appointment Coordinator

We are very happy to have recently added LeAnne to our staff. Her daughter was one of Dr. Julien's first patients in this location. She joins us after living in North Carolina for the last few years. LeAnne works alongside Steve, handling phone calls, appointments, patient relations and insurance.

LeAnne is getting to know North Texas again with her husband and five children. Ranging in age from 27 to 8, they keep her really moving.
