Meet the Team

I cannot imagine a successful, thriving orthodontic practice without an amazing staff. Each member of our team is friendly, professionally skilled, and dedicated to our patients.

Everyone gets along well, encouraging one another to constantly grow, sharing knowledge, and supporting professional and personal development.

My team has created and maintains a family-like atmosphere, where patients and families immediately know they are in a caring and safe environment. We get frequent comments about how warm, inviting, and relaxing it is in our office. We hope you feel the same!  — Dr. Leiker



Treatment Coordinator

Welcome to Leiker Orthodontics! I’m Jill, and as our treatment coordinator I’ll work with you to get everything arranged for your treatment and ensure the process is stress-free. I have a genuine curiosity for people, so I value time with everyone I get to meet and know.

I’ve worked in the field for years, having co-owned and managed an orthodontic practice in Michigan with my then-husband, who is an orthodontist. I loved the field and stayed in it! Dr. Leiker is a remarkable orthodontist, who cares about his patients and staff. That is true of my coworkers, too: We respect and support one another to provide you with a smile-filled experience!

I have two beautiful children, Megan and Tyler, who have left the nest and now have children of their own, which makes me a grandmother to Mila and Charlotte. I never imagined that being a Granny would be so fulfilling! Along with children, I have two very loving Akitas who fill the empty nest. Animals are my passion and I pet-sit/house-sit on the side, just to enjoy more dogs!


Front Desk Receptionist

Hello and welcome! I’m Jennifer and I’ll be one of the first people you meet at Leiker Orthodontics. I greet and check in patients, and make a point of asking how people are doing and what’s new since they last visited. I also collect payments, answer the phones, sign contracts, and pull and file charts.

I’ve worked in the medical field for many years, including seven years in orthodontics. This is an amazing practice, with a doctor and team that care about each other. We are dedicated to providing you with the best experience as you achieve your best smile!

Originally from the Midwest, I’ve lived in Texas for about 15 years. While I do miss the four seasons, I love living here! I have two boys, both of whom will be in college this fall. We are big sports fans: Go Hawkeyes! Go Cowboys! Go Astros! I like music, too, and enjoy going to local outdoor concerts or the Pavilion.


Financial and Insurance Coordinator

Hello and welcome to Leiker Orthodontics! I’m Patricia and I’ll work with you on matters related to insurance and financing. We want you to achieve a great smile, and to make that process seamless and worry-free! I file insurance claims, post insurance and patient payments, handle collections, and offer general customer service.

I’ve worked in the dental field since 2007, starting in general dentistry. Moving to orthodontics, and this practice, was the best choice I ever made! We have a great team and doctor, and everyone is family, including our patients. We care about and want only the best for you, including the most amazing smile!

I’ve been married for more than 35 years and have two grown children, a son and daughter. Both are married and have families of their own: I have four beautiful grandchildren and LOVE my grands! Family is HUGE in my life, as I come from a large, close-knit family, with four brothers and one sister.

I love to quilt, help my grands with their school work, and enjoy many activities with the Living Way Church in Conroe.

Hi and welcome! My name is Kathleen and I work in the Leiker Orthodontics clinic, where I assist Dr. Leiker with procedures, including placing and removing braces, as well as Invisalign®.

I have been in the field since 1995, when I was a senior in high school. This is an incredible practice, where we all want to give you the best experience and results. I love seeing how a pretty smile changes a person’s life and am excited to be part of creating your best smile!

Family keeps me very busy when I’m not at work. I have three daughters who are always on the go!

I have worked in the field for more than a dozen years and love watching people transform during treatment. I know you’ll love your beautiful smile! We have a great team: We’re a family and you’ll be part of that!

Outside of work, I enjoy time with my family. I am the mother of three daughters and have a granddaughter as well as a wonderful boyfriend. I love to shop and decorate, and be with my loved ones.

Hi! I’m Yvette, an orthodontic assistant, and I look forward to getting to know you. My days are spent in the clinic, working with Dr. Leiker during different procedures, all designed to get you to your best smile.

I started in the field in 1992 and found my professional home here at Leiker Orthodontics several years ago. I love being part of an excellent team, all of us working together to provide great care and build people’s self-confidence with a beautiful new smile!
