Dr. Redmond's Team


Treatment Coordinator

I joined the Redmond Orthodontics team in 1998 and I am the Treatment Coordinator. I truly love all aspects of my job- meeting and getting to know all our new patients, helping them on their way to a smile that they have always wanted and deserve, and seeing them smile for the first time after they get their braces off! Every day is incredibly fun and rewarding here at John Redmond Orthodontics. In my free time I enjoy camping, hiking and if I am not at work, I am at Lasuen playing beach volleyball! I look forward to meeting you and helping you with all your orthodontic needs!


Scheduling/Marketing Coordinator
I’ve been with the practice since 2019. I have grown up in San Clemente most my life, I used to walk from Shorecliffs Middle School to Redmond Orthodontics for my braces when Dr. John’s father was my orthodontist.

Dr. Ron Redmond was my orthodontist for years and later as I had a family my kids all came to Dr. John for braces. Working here is like being on the set of CHEERS, everyone is so welcoming and knows your name.

I just love it. You will find me on my free time with my 3 beautiful children playing pickleball, surfing (well my son’s not me), BBQing, playing tennis, and traveling.


Financial Coordinator, RDA

I have worked for the Redmond organization since 1999. Starting as a chairside RDA I was able to learn the function of orthodontics from the leaders in the industry. Even though I may be behind the scenes now as the Financial and Insurance Coordinator at John Redmond Orthodontics, my goal is to facilitate the financial and possible insurance aspect of our patient’s orthodontic care. I work with insurance companies to make sure our patients are getting the most out of their benefits, answer insurance questions, and assist patients and their families with financial arrangements. I strive to help patients learn about our affordable options that allow a lifetime of confidence to our patients by improving their smile.

My favorite pastime is surfing with my husband and two daughters, as well as walking the beach trail and sea glassing.



Hi, I am Laurie an RDA and Certified Orthodontic Assistant at John Redmond Orthodontics. I have had the pleasure of working for the Redmond team since 1988. As the clinical coordinator I am part of the “back office” team that will help create your new smile. I assist Dr. John with patient care and keeping our clinal area running smoothly. I love everything about my job and co-workers. The most rewarding part of my day is seeing the transformation of our patients’ smiles and knowing we have made a positive difference. I am proud to be part of our team that creates amazing smiles every day.



I have been an RDA at Redmond Orthodontics since 1988 and recently acquired my Orthodontic Assisting Certificate. My favorite part of working chairside with Dr. John is seeing so many happy and confident patients due to the beautiful smiles we create.


I was raised in San Clemente. When I got my braces from Dr.John in middle school I really loved the girls that worked here and the fun environment! In High School I took a Dental Assisting ROP class and interned with Dr. John until getting hired when I was 17 years old. I’m so glad I am able to work here now, its such a fun and fast-paced environment and what makes it even more special is the people I meet along the way!


I am fortunate to have lived in San Clemente my entire life. I am grateful to Dr. John for helping me feel confident with my smile. As a patient, I always noted the happiness and love shared amongst the office team. Dr. John has created a family environment that includes his staff and patients. I am honored to have joined Dr. John’s staff. Most of the day, you will find me in the back lab making retainers and aligners. You may also spot me in the sterilization center or around the office cleaning. Outside of the office, I spend most of my time, surfing, getting coffee, studying, and hanging out with my friends around our beautiful town.


I’ve lived in San Clemente for about 10 years and couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. If I’m not at the beach you’ll find me at my amazing job. I’ve been working with John Redmond Orthodontics since 2021 and couldn’t imagine a better team! Seeing transformed smiles every day is something I’ll value forever and I am so grateful to be a part of a group of such wonderful people, and meeting many others every day!



I have been an RDA since 2011 and have been working with Dr. John Redmond since 2017. I primarily assist Dr. John in all facets of various orthodontic procedures learning as much as I can along the way from one of the best in the field. Aside from furthering my knowledge in this industry, my favorite part of working here is being a part of a great team that helps transform people’s smiles into something they are proud to display.



I have been working for Dr. John since 2018 as an RDA and Certified Orthodontic Assistant. I was a dental assistant for many years in a general dentistry office but was led to move to Orthodontics after I fell in love with the office and his team. My three daughters were Dr. John’s patients and during the visits to the office I quickly realized that Orthodontics was my calling. I love my job and could not ask for a better work family. My goal is to make every patient that comes into our office young or old, feel like family and to comfort them through their treatment. In my free time I enjoy baking, walking the beach trail and doing CrossFit. I look forward to many years of helping patients to health and happiness through Orthodontics.
