Inspiring Smile Team

The orthodontic treatment that’s performed on a patient is only as good as the team that provides it and we’re proud to say that we’ve got one of the best! At Inspire Orthodontics, our Highlands Ranch and Littleton orthodontics team is committed to giving our patients the compassionate orthodontic care that they deserve. Our skilled team has decades of experience and is willing and able to help you before, during, and after the orthodontic process. We’d like to introduce our team to you and let you get to know us a little better.

To experience the difference that only a well-trained, professional and courteous team can deliver, schedule your appointment with our office today!

Our Inspire Smile Team includes:


Amy moved to Colorado 18 years ago from her beloved home town of Deadwood, South Dakota. Amy and her husband love traveling with their six children. She also enjoys spending time in the kitchen, making old family recipes. Amy started in the dental field as an assistant but has really found her niche at the front desk. She loves being the first person to greet each and every one of our patients. Most of all, she loves going above and beyond to make their day special and their patient experiences memorable.


A desire to help others and to work with children is what first attracted Dedra to the orthodontic industry. A native of the San Luis Valley (220 miles southwest of Littleton), Dedra received her dental education at Concorde Career College in Aurora.

Dedra began her role with Inspire Orthodontics in 2010, working side-by-side assisting Dr. Housewright with patient care. Her outgoing personality makes her a favorite with patients and fellow team members. Now as our Office Lead and Treatment Coordinator, Dedra loves the opportunity to present state-of-the-art treatment plans to our patients and watch their smiles and lives transform. Her interest in modern technology and orthodontics makes her a perfect fit for our office.

Dedra spends most of her free time with her 5-year-old daughter, Ava-Rae, and her boyfriend, Rick. They enjoy traveling, watching football (especially the Broncos) and spending time with close friends and family.


LaCrisha and her family recently moved to Colorado from Georgia. She absolutely loves the beautiful Colorado mountains and the snow! LaCrisha enjoys spending time with her husband and son exploring Colorado. She loves 80s music and sings all the time – no, really, all the time! LaCrisha has two primary roles at Inspire Orthodontics: she is our front desk coordinator and Dr. Housewright's personal assistant. She loves being a part of the Inspire team and ensuring that patients have the best experience possible!


Debbie is an assistant for Dr. Wade and has been an orthodontic assistant since 2000. She began working at Inspire Orthodontics in 2009 when she moved from Washington state. Debbie’s been fortunate enough to be able to do what she loves: creating amazing smiles and building self-esteem. Watching our patients grow and develop is a huge benefit for her, and she loves to hear all about their achievements. Debbie’s favorite days are when the braces come off and our patients see their incredible smile!

When you come in, you can count on Debbie to ask you how you’re doing and share her thoughts on sports (especially the Seahawks)! She enjoys music (like Bon Jovi), traveling to Disneyland, Washington state and Hawaii, and of course, her daughter and son.


Roxann moved to the Denver area several years ago and graduated from Pima Medical Institute with a Dental Assisting diploma. She was hired by Inspire Orthodontics straight out of school, knowing that she had always had an interest in the dental specialty.

Roxann loves spending time with her three young daughters and the rest of her extended family. She is an active member in her church and enjoys adult coloring, baking and crafts. She has enjoyed being part of a team that creates beautiful smiles every day and is inspired by all of the wonderful patients she has met.


Kayla, a Colorado native, began her dental career in general dentistry. After learning orthodontics in a general office, she knew that orthodontics was where she wanted to be. She loves hands on experiences and was ready to learn even more. Inspire Orthodontics gave her the opportunity to build her skills as an assistant and thrive amongst a passionate team. Kayla loves interacting with her patients and seeing their smile transformations. Outside of work, she has a dog, sisters, and friends who take up most of her time. She enjoys hiking in the great outdoors, seeing the world, and trying new food. Kayla looks forward to getting to know you and providing you with an experience to remember.
