Front Office



School & Community Liason
Smile For a Lifetime Coordinator

I love meeting new people and connecting our practice to the many community organizations, athletic associations and local schools that we support. Our Smile for a Lifetime program has put me in touch with some very special people, not only the many grateful families we have helped through the generosity of this wonderful program, but also the board members who serve our chapter. Working at the front desk is so much fun, and it gives me an opportunity to see and assist you!

Outside of work, my heart is happiest when I am spending time with those most precious to me, my family. My husband and I have two wonderful sons and two beautiful daughters-in-law. I love getting together with friends, going to the beach, practicing yoga, and reading. 


Social Media Coordinator
Dental Community Coordinator

I love developing relationships with our patients and their families, and being at the front desk gives me an opportunity to really get to know everyone. You may have noticed I love people and I love to talk, which makes this the perfect job for me! I also enjoy promoting our office through social media, where our practice connects with you online, and taking great care of our partners in the dental community.

Blessed with three sons, I enjoy traveling to see them because it’s always an adventure. I love spending time with friends and my cute little puppy, Chloe. I’m a huge sports fan and, as a matter of fact, I was Ms. Wuf for two years at NC State—let’s go, ACC! I love to read, play tennis, hike, and go to the beach… any beach will do.


New Patient Coordinator

As our New Patient Coordinator, introducing our practice to you is an honor. It is my pleasure to tell you about our office and answer any questions that you may have about your first appointment. My number one goal each day is to ensure that our new patients enjoy a pleasant and productive visit with us, and that starts with making certain everything is ready for you when you arrive. I have a passion for dentistry and have been involved with it in some form or fashion since the year 2000. I am grateful for the opportunity to play such an important role in our office.

Originally from Ecuador, my family and I have enjoyed making North Carolina our home. My husband, three sons and baby daughter keep me moving! Between practice, games, and homework, there is always something to do. I love to go to the parks for long walks and collecting leaves. Engaging with nature always brings me peace.


Treatment Coordinator

I have the privilege of working with children and adults as they begin the orthodontic treatment process. During your first appointment, I will be there to guide you as treatment options and flexible payment arrangements are discussed. My goal is always to help you feel comfortable during the process, and ultimately better about yourself with a beautiful, healthy smile. Our team is truly another family, just outside of our homes.

My husband Ryan, our two beautiful daughters, and six darling grandchildren keep me occupied with football, baseball, swimming, soccer, and cheer. I’m very involved with my church, love to take long walks (especially on the beach), cook, bake, and spend time with our dog, Callie. 


Treatment Coordinator

I will do everything I can to be sure your experience with us is a positive and pleasant one. Making sure that you feel comfortable and have all the information you need, both in regard to upcoming treatment and flexible payment options, is always my first priority. I love the fun and friendly atmosphere of our office and being part of our team—we are like family.

My life outside of work revolves mostly around my son’s baseball schedule. My husband and I eat, breathe, and sleep baseball several months of the year and we love every minute of it. My favorite place to go is the beach, where you’ll find me reading and relaxing. I enjoy watching the Atlanta Braves play and supporting our local sports teams, especially the Panthers and the Hornets. 


Financial Coordinator

I ensure that the daily financial operations of our practice are overseen so our doctors can concentrate on what's most important: our patients. I work closely with our patients and families to arrange payment schedules to meet their needs. I love my job, the ladies I work with, and our talented doctors. This is my family away from home.

My husband and I have three amazing children; Molly, Katie and Ben. I love spending time with my family and friends, whether we are attending sporting events, concerts, or cooking a special dinner and going out to see a great movie! It’s all about making fun memories—that’s what makes me happy.


Insurance Coordinator
Front Office Team Leader

Believe it or not, I enjoy the insurance related part of my responsibilities! I work hard on behalf of our families to be sure they are taken care of with regard to their insurance coverage and benefits. Keeping our front office running smoothly and efficiently is also part of my job, but with our experienced team, that is easy breezy! I spend more time at work than at home, so everyone here is really a big part of my life and family. Without their friendship and support, it would just be a job.

I married my high school sweetheart, have two wonderful children, and am now a proud Mimi to our grandson Charlie, with whom I would spend all my extra time playing with if I could. Going to the beach has always been our favorite family getaway. I never miss a Tar Heel game and supporting the Sarcoma Foundation is very close to my heart.


Clinical Team


Patient Care Manager

I adore my patients and love the interaction that I have with each one of them. Challenging cases where I see a dramatic change and working with such a fun group of people are just two of the many reasons why I love my work.

I’m a strong supporter of giving back to the community. I volunteer often at my church and have a special interest in helping with the local blood drives. My two teenage sons keep me on my toes, and I try to volunteer at their schools whenever possible. Utah is my “happy place.” I love four wheeling, hiking, and just generally anything to do with being outdoors!


Patient Care Manager

I truly love orthodontics and feel blessed to work with such a fun, caring, and talented team. I really enjoy getting to know my patients and creating lasting friendships! Bringing an amazing smile to their face and watching them mature and grow is the most rewarding job.

My greatest accomplishment is being a mom to our daughter Kennedi, who keeps my husband Jack and I very busy with her many activities. We love to travel, go to the lake, and enjoy showing our 1968 Camaro at car shows. I love children and am involved at church as the Mission Friends leader and the Children’s Choir Director.


Patient Care Manager

A friend introduced me to the world of orthodontics and I’m so glad she did - it’s the best job ever! I love getting to know our patients of all ages and building relationships with each one of them and their families. The upbeat atmosphere in our office makes working here so much fun!

I have been blessed with a beautiful daughter, supportive husband and two loving fur babies. We love to travel, especially to my favorite place of all time, Aruba. I’m adventurous and enjoy spending time outdoors, camping, river tubing and hiking. 


Patient Care Manager

Seeing the difference that a beautiful smile can make in a person’s life and self-esteem is what I love best about being a patient care manager. The care each patient receives from our doctors and the team is always our best effort; we strive for excellence! We are like one big happy family, and I consider it my job to keep everyone laughing with my funny stories, jokes, and goofy comments.

My greatest joy in life is my family. My husband Bill and I are fortunate that our three beautiful daughters and their families all live close by. We love spending time with our precious grandchildren, riding motorcycles, and escaping to North Myrtle Beach as often as possible. 


Patient Care Manager
Clinical Team Leader

My favorite part of my job is spending time and interacting with our patients. It is so rewarding to see the difference in people’s lives after their smiles have changed. Our team works together like clockwork; it’s great working in an upbeat environment with so much synergy.

My family is what’s most important to me and spending time with them is my favorite thing to do. My husband and I love sports, the thrill of drag races, going to car shows, working on cars and playing with our Cocker Spaniel, Cam. I also enjoy kickboxing at my local 9 Round.


Patient Care Manager

I love my patients and the people I work with. It’s so fun to develop that relationship with my patients while they’re in treatment and the people I work with are awesome! The fast pace of our office is another thing I really enjoy and having been one of 11 kids growing up, I’m used to moving at a swift pace.

I’m all about spending time with my family (which is HUGE), starting with my husband Duane and my two fine sons, Jack and Nolan, who are both serving in the U.S. military. An adorable beagle, who we named Regal, completes our happy home. In my spare time, I love to travel. My two favorite places to go are the beaches of Charleston and the mountains of Asheville. 


Lab Team


Lab Technician

I love everything about my job, but mostly, I love my work family and how we come together to take great care of our patients and each other. The lab is where you’ll find me most often, making our in-house appliances and retainers, in addition to doing all of the ordering for the clinical side of our office. 

My husband Johnathan and I stay super busy with our young son Brody, the light of my life. We also have a spoiled French bulldog named Paris. I’m always up for a trip to the beach or a little retail therapy!


Lab Technician

From the time I was 14 and a patient in our office, my dream was to work here. You can find me in our lab making retainers and taking impressions, X-rays, and pictures. You might even catch me in the bay, where I help as an assistant when needed. I absolutely love talking with our patients and seeing their progress from start to finish!

I love adventure: bass fishing, kayaking, and pretty much anything to do with a lake or beach. Investing in the next generation through the youth group at church is also near and dear to my heart. I’m overjoyed to be engaged to the man of my dreams and can’t wait to begin this new chapter of my life.


Lab Technician

As soon as I began working in the field of orthodontics, I fell in love with it! I can be found in the lab making retainers and other appliances, taking new patient pictures and x-rays, and helping out in the bay. I enjoy nothing more than spending my day with my wonderful work family and meeting new people.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my family and friends, traveling, hunting and shopping. I am a “dog mom” to two German Shepherds named Dakota and Lexi, who are my whole world. I am passionate about supporting Firefighters for the Cure, an organization dedicated to raising funds to help those in need who are battling cancer.
