Lisette Cruz

Orthodontic Assistant

“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!”

“I was born and raised in LA but love to take mini vacations with my fiancé, Jeff. I have a dog named Milo, I rescued him from Mexico. He is my world! Swimming has been my favorite hobby ever since I was little, whether in the ocean or a pool if I’m swimming I’m happy. I love that coming to work is enjoyable! 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!”

Kristine Boncales

Marketing Coordinator

“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. I love the team and the strong bond that we have! I enjoy getting to know all of our patients. We’re all a family here at McComb and I truly enjoy going to work everyday!”

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
Inspirational Person: My Dad, for always being a hard worker, life lecturer, and completely full of random facts. I aspire to know as much useless information as he does.

Lindsay Grossman

Scheduling Coordinator

“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.
Favorite Book: The Alchemist
Inspirational Person: My mom;)
