Huntington Park


Huntington Park Manager Martha

Martha Garcia

As treatment coordinator, I enjoy having my hands full at all times.  Being able to work with our patients through all phases of their orthodontic care is really fulfilling. I have been working in the dental field since 1998 and always enjoy learning new methods and technologies from our doctors. I gladly joined Dr. Lili’s office nearly a decade ago.  We are a friendly, dedicated, and energetic team that is committed to giving patients confidence in their smile and themselves. 

When I’m at home, I enjoy spending time with my family.

I am extremely grateful to be a part of Dr. Lili's office.  I have been   working with this amazing team since 2013, throughout these years I have had the opportunity to work in various positions within the company.  It is my pleasure to guide our patients through their orthodontic journey.  Being able to witness our patient's excitement as their braces come off is the best reward.

On my free time I enjoy watching movies, outdoor activities and exploring new restaurants with my son and husband.

Santa Ana


Santa Ana Manager Katya

Katya Cortes

My role at Dr. Lili’s is to help run day-to-day tasks of the practice and act as a liaison between the patient and our orthodontists. I am responsive to patient needs and assist in making positive orthodontic experiences. Though I have more than 24 years of experience working in the customer service field, my passion for orthodontics started in 2008 when I began my career as a treatment coordinator. The prospect of working in a dynamic environment with a diverse clientele, meeting new people, and building relationships with our patients, families, and the community, are what I truly enjoy the most. I am a natural extrovert and thrive on personal interaction.

Our fabulous team works together to create a wonderful office environment. Each member brings their best self and infuses that positivity and upbeat energy into every task they take on while having a great time doing it.

I enjoy spending time and creating memories with my two beautiful adult children Michael and Tatyanna, and our Teacup Maltese named Party. My hobbies include cooking, salsa dancing, watching boxing matches, and most of all I love to sing karaoke.



Lawndale Manager Betty

Betty De La Torre 

I started my career in orthodontics a quarter century ago. The nearly dozen years I’ve spent with Dr. Lili has been enriched through dedicated patient care. With on-the-job training in an orthodontic practice starting since the beginning of my career, and support of yearly training through seminars and conferences such as the AAO, I have managed to become enriched and knowledgeable in all aspects of the orthodontic treatment process. I love working with skilled individuals who love making people’s lives more meaningful by creating beautiful smiles.  We take pride in our service, not only as a team, but as individuals giving personable attention to our patients.

My husband and I love spending time with our two clever young daughters. I hope to instill my love of travel and encourage my little ones by crossing off destinations from our bucket list, one by one.

In my spare time, I enjoy outdoor activities, traveling, and making memories with my daughter Aaliyah Aubrey.
