Meet the Team

doctor and staff

 

Darci, Office Manager

I’ve been with Croco Orthodontics since 2005.  My responsibilities include meeting with new patients as a treatment coordinator, insurance, and accounts receivable. I was an actual patient of Dr. Croco’s as an adult, and I truly enjoyed my entire orthodontic experience. My favorite aspect of orthodontics is meeting and working with our patients and their families. I enjoy visiting with them and getting to know them on a personal level throughout their treatment. My husband and I have a son and daughter who keep us on our toes. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy attending my kids’ activities, knitting, and target shooting. I am also an enthusiastic Hawkeye wrestling fan!

Kati, Certified Orthodontic Assistant

My duties include chairside assisting, taking x-rays, sterilization and working with our True Definition Scanner. I’ve been with Croco Orthodontics since 2014. I absolutely love seeing the amazing things orthodontics can do.  It is very fulfilling to see the outcome of treatment and how excited and happy it makes our patients. The thing I like best about working with Dr. Croco is he has a great sense of humor and makes the workplace fun.  I really enjoy getting to know my patients and hearing their interesting stories.  I’m a native of Sioux City, Iowa. In my free time, I like being with friends and family, watching movies, going to Hawkeye football games and playing with my dog, Herky. You might not know I’ve been an orthodontic assistant since 2007.
