Amber

Amber

Communications Liaison

I am the office communications liaison between our office and the other dental professionals in the area that help give our patients such beautiful smiles. As a graduate of the Orlando Tech Dental Assisting Program, I am also certified to help in the clinic and sterilization. I feel very lucky to have the background that allows me to serve in so many aspects.

I am not only a Florida native, but grew up in the Orlando area. My husband and I enjoy spending time with our daughter, going on cruises, going to the movies and relaxing at home with our four cats.

 

Debbie

Debbie

Accounts Payable and Insurance Coordinator

My work presents me with a great variety of interesting interactions and exchanges with our amazing patients and their families. Insurance and finances can be confusing, and I love the challenge of helping patients obtain the most from their benefits. In addition to filing insurance, I support our front office staff by providing general office support and taking care of accounts payable.

As for my personal life, I am an Indiana transplant to Florida and enjoy our warm climate. Indiana still has a place in my heart because my son and his wife reside there with my two beautiful granddaughters.

 

Dena

Dena

Certified Orthodontic Assistant

I really enjoy working in a friendly environment. My workday is spent with patients, as I assist the doctors in their treatment and I love hearing their stories and sharing their hobbies and interests. It’s great to share a laugh while helping the patient to feel relaxed as we are accomplishing our goals.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time at the beach and I am very active with my church, as well. I’ve been married for 30 years and have two sons, one who is married and gave me two grandsons, and the other is in college.

 

Doreen

Doreen

Treatment Coordinator

I am an initial point-of-contact for patients and their parents. My focus is to welcome them, engage, educate, and help each patient and the family understand the orthodontic process and how it provides excellent long-term dental health. Making a positive impact on the lives of our patients and their families is the best part of my job. I love seeing the gradual transformation in each patient, not just in the appearance of their smile but how they feel about themselves.

In my personal life, I am blessed to be a wife, mother, and grandmother of two, who enjoys family time, time with our dogs (who are part of the family), the outdoors, and being part of the music ministry in my parish.

 

Joyce

Joyce

Certified Orthodontic Assistant and Lab Technician

It’s rewarding to work one-on-one with our patients, and I love it when they come in for a visit so excited to tell us about their latest successes in life. Ours is a positive orthodontic office and our patients actually look forward to coming to see us! My day is divided between caring for the patients and assisting our doctors, and working in our onsite lab, crafting retainers and appliances.

My personal life is very family-centered. I am the proud mother of three incredible children and now have six beautiful grandchildren.

 

Kim

Kim

Treatment Coordinator

I work with the new patients as they arrive at our practice and I guide them through their orthodontic journey. I enjoy seeing them from their first shy smiles to celebrating their radiant, confident smiles when our goals have been accomplished. Each treatment plan is as unique as each person and I enjoy getting the records, setting up the finances and appointments and following them through the process, and answering any questions that may arise.

In my personal life I enjoy spending time with friends and with my husband, two adult children and my new grandchild. We have several dogs that we call family too!

 

Lauren

Lauren

Certified Orthodontic Assistant

It’s truly amazing to watch a patient grow from a shy child who is embarrassed by their smile, into a confident young adult who moves through the world self-assuredly with a bright and happy smile. I work closely with our doctors and our patients and this means I get to spend time with each patient and I love that part of my work day.

On the weekends, you’ll find me being active with my church or at the beach. I’ve also recently started running in 5k races and love it! I was born and raised in Winter Park and now live in Orlando with my husband and son. We also have two cats, Maui and George.

 

Mary

Mary

Receptionist

Developing personal relationships with our patients and their families, catching up with them when they come in for visits, and sharing in their lives are the most enjoyable aspects of my work. I really like the diversity of our patients and hearing about their interests and passions. At our practice I answer our phones, schedule patients, and perform various administrative duties.

In my home life, I have two sons. I am active in my faith life, and enjoy cooking and reading.

 

Lindsay

Megan M.

Certified Orthodontic Assistant

Each patient comes to us with unique needs, and our team is committed to creating the perfect smile specifically for them. I love helping create smiles. I keep busy throughout the day, which is good, because I am a very energetic person.

That carries over into my personal life, where I love going to the gym and spending time with family.

 

Megan

Megan S.

Certified Orthodontic Assistant

I love the day patients get their braces off. It is very rewarding to see them have that first glance in the mirror and get that grin from ear to ear! I love that my work is so patient-focused and I get to be a part of creating smiles. The family atmosphere we have in the office makes coming to work each day a pleasure.

When I’m not at work I enjoy my family life, and spending time with my husband, two sons and daughter. I love to spend time in the sunshine, and enjoy anything around water.

 

Susan

Susan

Certified Orthodontic Assistant and Inventory Control

I love getting to know all about our patients. The bonds we form are very strong and each patient touches our lives as much as we hopefully impact theirs by creating beautiful smiles. I provide chairside assistance, helping the doctors at each appointment. In addition, I handle all the ordering and accounts receivables for the clinical supplies.

I am a Central Florida native and love our beaches and outdoor living. I reside with my husband, two dogs, and a cat, and I am fortunate to have two grown children and five grandchildren living nearby.
