Lisa Vaught-Schmidt

Office Manager
Lisa began her career in Hawaii where she worked in the various areas of the dental office taking care of scheduling, billing, training, patient coordinating, clinical assisting and administration.  She brought ten years of experience and knowledge with her to Las Vegas in 1998 when she began working with Dr. Stavarache and learning about the residents and patients of Las Vegas. In 2005 when Dr. Stavarache opened her doors, Lisa was here to help welcome existing and new patients alike. Lisa considers communication, compassion, respect and integrity all key elements when working with patients.  She believes Dr. Stavarache’s philosophy of treating patients as if they were members of her own family makes it possible to continue long term relationships with them. 

Lisa was born and raised in Hawaii and although she misses the ocean, is proud to call Las Vegas “home”.  When she’s out of the office she enjoys spending time with her husband, and cooking for her family and friends.
