We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.
We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
Looking at patient's before and after photos is truly a rewarding experience not only for our patients, but for me personally. I love working chairside with Dr. Bruno and the entire team as we deliver fantastic results for our patients. It is heartwarming to see the confidence many patients develop once they have been given such a beautiful smile. I enjoy building relationships with each of our patients while providing the best orthodontic care possible. In addition to assisting with treatment progression, I am responsible for making sure that we have all of the supplies we need to make sure our office runs seamlessly. Recently, I relocated back to my hometown of Sterling Heights in order to complete my bachelor's degree in business.
Outside of work, I love keeping busy with my adventurous pup named Bailey. We like going on long walks and attempting to learn new tricks. I enjoy spending time with family, especially at our family cottage near Caseville.
Treatment Coordinator and Orthodontic Technician
As the mother of three, I like meeting and getting to know our patients as they begin orthodontics. It’s exciting to see the transformation of their smiles and personalities as they move through treatment! I help patients and families understand their treatment plan, answer questions, and make sure they have everything needed to make informed decisions. I also assist with insurance billing, work as a chairside technician, and am our OSHA compliance officer, too!
My significant other, Jack, and I live in Clawson with our four children. We have a cat named Daisy Mae, as well. We love time together as a family, especially when it involves camping or going to the beach!
I am a people person and enjoy building relationships with our patients and families. It’s truly a joy to see each person’s self-esteem blossom as they see the change in their appearance. The excitement on a patient’s face when they complete treatment and see their new smile for the first time is the best day of all! I prepare and manage financial contracts, and find terms that work for families. I also handle accounting, reporting, and payroll. I’ve known Dr. B. for 40 years — since he was undergoing his orthodontic treatment — and have watched him grow into a caring and dedicated orthodontist.
My husband Charlie and I have a beautiful Golden Retriever, Finnegan. In my spare time I enjoy going to dinner and watching movies with Charlie, along with reading and exercising. I’m currently training Finnegan to become certified for pet therapy!
Patient Care Coordinator
After 28 wonderful years of practicing as a dental hygienist, I decided to make the leap to the world of orthodontics - and I absolutely LOVE it! Seeing the patient's smile transformation as they progress through treatment and working closely with the incredible families are the most amazing parts of my career. I started working with Dr. Bruno in September of 2018, but we've known one another since grade school. He likes to refer to me as the "Swiss Army knife" because I perform multiple tasks; including patient care, the new patient experience, scheduling and financial responsibilities. I feel so lucky to work everyday surrounded by such a wonderful team at Bruno Orthodontics. Family means everything to me. I enjoy spending time with my husband, Mike, our three boys, and our favorite Australian Shephed, Kaia. I love hiking, gardening, traveling, camping, cooking and surrounding myself with family and friends.
My favorite part about being the scheduling coordinator is the connections I make with each of our patients and their families. It is such a joy to be part of their orthodontic experience, especially witnessing the beautiful, big smiles when they're finished! As the scheduling coordinator, I am able to assist each patient with facilitating the most efficient timeline for their treatment. As we all know, situations arise; such as needing to reschedule an appoinment or replace a broken retainer that require me to communicate efficiently with each family to ensure that their needs are addressed as quickly and professionally as possible.
On a personal level, my husband and I, along with our two kids are local "Clawsonites." When we are not at a soccer or basketball game, we enjoy outdoor activities, road trips and family game nights. I look forward to seeing you at our office.
