Lisette Cruz

Clinical Coordinator

“I’m new to the mom life, my son is a year old and I am obsessed with him! Majority of the time I’m either eating or talking about food. In my spare time I go to any toddler related classes and enjoy time with my husband. Working at McComb Orthodontics has helped me grow in many ways, both professionally and personally. I leave my family at home and come to my second family at work! It feels great to walk in to your job knowing everyone is accepting and caring!”

No matter how busy we are we still manage to work together and have a great time.”

Orthodontic Assistant

“My absolute favorite thing to do on my free time is binge watch Friends. When I’m not watching Friends, I love exploring LA, taking my dog Nala on walks and spending quality time with my family and friends. I love working at McComb because I genuinely feel like I’m coming to work at my second home. No matter how tired I am at the end of the day, I leave the office feeling happy!”

“I was born in Los Angeles and raised in Dallas! I absolutely love exploring beach towns and going hiking. I’m terrified of spiders, I love all dogs and I was rated third funniest in the office.

Taylor McCoy

Treatment Coordinator

“I moved to Los Angeles from Muskogee, Oklahoma in the summer of 2015 (Although Dr. McComb always forgets and thinks I’m from Arkansas). I’m a huge anime and video game geek, and typically spend my nights sketching, playing video games online, or reading Batman comics. I truly love my job! Our office is always dedicated to providing a fun and relaxing atmosphere to both patients and co-workers alike.”

Favorite Food: Ramen and Sushi
Favorite Book: The Collected Works of H. P. Lovecraft

Dr. Ouliana Oguienko, DDS MS

Orthodontist

“I’m a Canadian that’s a big fan of the sunshine, beach volleyball, and flowers so staying in LA after completion of my training at CHLA was easy. I absolutely love improving people’s smiles but on my days off I enjoy drawing, adventuring out with my camera, discovering a new yoga class, reading and dancing. It is truly a joy to be part of this motivated, highly skilled, and caring group of individuals that value the quality of patient care as much as having fun. It makes my job easy and exciting! “

Isaac Iniguez

Orthodontic Assistant

“I’m new to the dental world with my position here being my first ever in the field. Even though I’m new, working alongside this amazing team has made me feel more welcome than ever and has taught me so much in such a short time. Outside of work, I’m a huge nerd with a bit of an adventurous side. Video games have always been a huge hobby of mine since I was young, but have recently gained a huge interest in art and going to as many art galleries as I can. I guess it must run in the family since my mom was an amazing artist and also had a passion for it!”

Favorite Food: A good steak
Favorite Book: The Rise of Kyoshi
Inspirational Person: Robin Williams

Taylor Katz

“I am an LA native who is a lover of music, home decor, any water related activities, sunshine and most of all, spending time with family and friends. This is my first time working in an Orthodontic office and I am enjoying every minute of it! The team here is more like a family, not to mention we have the best boss in the world! When I am not working, I am with my family. My husband and I enjoy traveling and trying new cool restaurants and bars around LA. We also have a beautiful smart little munchkin named Charlee and a fur baby (Kali) who we love to spend lots of time with! “

Lindsay Grossman

Operations Manager

“I was born and raised in the Los Angeles area. I love the outdoors. I am a sucker for a good pun! Dogs are my weakness. Any dog walks by and I am done for. I have grown up dancing since I was 6 years old. I hold my family and friends near and dear to my heart. I have a twin sister, who’s my best friend, and guess what…we were born on two different days! “

Favorite Food: Vegetables, specifically yummy salads. I know…how bizarre?!…but I also have a huge sweet tooth. Give me anything consisting of chocolate or sour candy and this gal cannot resist.
