Orthodontic Assistant

I love becoming friends with our patients. They’re all so excited to be getting new smiles, and that excitement is contagious! I provide chairside assistance, to support the doctor and patient. I also take X-rays and impressions and offer home care education to patients and parents. My most important duty, and what I love, is making sure everyone is smiling and happy during their visit.

My husband, who’s in a country rock band, and I have been together for 15 years. We have a son, Christian, who plays violin. My house is always filled with a variety of music.


Treatment Coordinator

I love helping new patients and introducing them to orthodontics. It’s amazing to watch a person go from being self-conscious about their crooked teeth to someone who smiles and laughs without worry. I welcome new patients, take records, and assist them through their first visit. I review their treatment plan, make the financial arrangements, and ensure a smooth start to care.

I live in Chagrin Falls with my husband, who’s a landscape contractor, and our two cats. We enjoy family, golfing, and happy hour.


Front Desk Receptionist

It’s so much fun to get to know people as they’re starting treatment and then watch their personality blossom as their smile changes. The day their braces come off is the best day: they can’t stop looking in the mirror and happily laughing. I work at our front desk, greeting patients, answering the phone, and scheduling visits.

I’ve been happily married to my husband Bill for more than 30 years. I have three grown sons. When I’m not working, I enjoy exercising and going to classic car shows with our Mustangs.


Orthodontic Assistant

I love that we can change how someone feels about themselves by correcting their smile. It’s amazing to see the dramatic changes that can be made in just a couple years of treatment. I assist our doctors with placing and removing braces. I also take X-rays and impressions, and update patients and their families about the progress of their smile.

I’m married and have a young son, as well as two cats, Chloe and Chance, and a fish, Dory. My husband is in medical school and I work full time, so our family time is important to all of us.


Business Manager

I love working in a positive environment, where we are able to improve the lives of so many wonderful people. I work behind the scenes, handling our accounts payable and receivable as well as our general accounting and business functions. I also oversee personnel duties, including payroll.

I have a husband, two children, and two dogs. My son has recently enlisted in the Navy and my daughter is a competitive dancer. I also work at my daughter’s dance studio, handling administrative tasks similar to what I handle for our practice.


Orthodontic Assistant

I love helping patients get a great smile. It’s amazing to see the change in a person’s confidence as their new smile takes shape. The day we remove the braces and the patient is able to see their finished smile is the best! I provide chairside assistance to our doctors, to make sure they have what they need, and talk with our patient. I also perform lab work.

My husband and I enjoy biking, hiking, and watching and participating in various sports. I have two sons: one lives in New York and the other is in Westlake.


Treatment Coordinator

I love working with patients of all ages. They each have the same goal: a beautiful smile. It’s a joy to help them attain that goal and see their incredible finished smiles. I work with new patients at their first visit. I explain what orthodontic care involves and review the doctor’s treatment plan. I also assist patients and parents with financial arrangements and their insurance.

I’ve been married for more than 40 years. I have three grown daughters, six grandkids, and three cats. I’m active in my church and love riding with my husband on our motorcycle.


Orthodontic Assistant

I love watching a person’s smile and confidence change as their teeth transform into amazing smiles. It’s a pleasure to get to know each patient and become a part of their life. Working chairside, I assist our doctors during various procedures. I also take records, create molds, and make retainers so our patients can keep their incredible smile!

I’m the mother of a teenage daughter. Most of my free time is spent carting her back and forth to basketball — and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I enjoy keeping active and am very adventurous.


Front Desk Receptionist

I love talking with our patients and their families. It’s fun to learn about their lives and interests. Everyone always has fascinating and often funny stories to share, and I love hearing them! It’s rewarding to help great people get the beautiful smile they deserve. I greet patients and check them in. I also schedule visits, answer the phone, and handle patient and doctor correspondence.

In my free time, I enjoy losing myself in a good book and taking on new arts and crafts projects. I also love hiking in our Metroparks system.


Orthodontic Assistant

I love meeting new people every day and starting to build friendships with them. It’s fun to see our current patients every month, and witness the changes in their smiles and personalities. Everyone becomes so much more confident and happy! I offer chairside assistance during procedures, helping the doctor and telling our patient what we’re doing. I also take impressions and X-rays.
