Meet the Staff

Jeanette, Orthodontic Technician

I have been an Orthodontic technician since 2002 and am still loving it every day! I feel so blessed to be able to help make a positive difference for so many patients. I have so much fun doing what we do here.

I have 3 awesome kiddos and a dog named Bo. We live here in Allen and love this little bubble we call home. We love all things sports: Go Allen Eagles, Go Cowboys!

For fun I love to shop, travel, watch sporting events, swimming, and enjoy doing home improvement/decorating projects.


Katie Allsop, Treatment Coordinator

I love teeth! I began my orthodontic career right out of high school and enjoyed transforming smiles for many years.  I took some time away to raise my family.  Now, I’m back and loving every moment!

Our team here at Kraus Orthodontics is so warm and friendly that it seems I’m not coming to “work”, but spending my day with friends.  Seeing the faces of each of our patients and being part of their orthodontic journey is so rewarding.

I have lived in Allen with my children Molly, Wyatt, and Mabel for 13 years. I absolutely love seeing our patients’ smiles while at community events.  Go Eagles!


Kandice, Financial & Scheduling Coordinator

I have always enjoyed helping create beautiful healthy smiles for patients while making it a positive experience for them. I working as an orthodontic assistant for 17 years in the Plano area. I joined the Kraus Orthodontic family in October of 2018 as the financial and scheduling coordinator. I can help you with any of your insurance needs or questions. I also enjoy scheduling our new patients and watching their journey to an amazing smile.

On the weekends I am usually hanging out with my very outgoing and energetic daughter, Dylan. We also spend a good amount of time chasing around our new labradoodle puppy named Ruby. I love doing anything creative or being near a beach.


Dallas, Orthodontic Technician

I began my dental career in 2018 and started at Kraus Orthodontics in 2019. I am very passionate about promoting great dental health to the community and world! I am excited to be apart of Dr. Kraus’ team and help share his mission to help our patients “Smile On!”

I’m a local who graduated from Plano Sr. High School. In my free time I love seeing movies, hanging out with my 90 lb dog Kai, traveling, and getting boba tea! I am also going to Collin College to pursue a degree in Dental Hygiene.


Jaren, Lab Technician

I have been working at Kraus Orthodontics since June 2017, but my journey here actually started when I was a patient for my own braces. I feel it has been such a blessing to work here with such fantastic people and have loved every minute of it. It has been such a pleasure to be a part of Dr. Kraus’ team in our mission to help patients “Smile On!”

Aside from working, I love to sing and play rugby. I have lived in Allen for 13 years.


Brei, Orthodontic Technician and Scheduling Coordinator

I love working as an orthodontic assistant and I have been able to learn so much from my team and my patients. I get to see so many smiles every day that it’s hard not to leave smiling everyday myself. I have an amazing husband named Erik and we have a beautiful baby girl named Elyana Wren. We love spending time with our family on the weekends and we worship the Dallas Cowboys! A great part of working for this office is that I get to know so many great people and I plan to meet many more throughout the years.
