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.
I enjoy getting to know each patient on a personal level. It’s amazing to see how much they grow as a person as they witness their smile transform. The day they finish treatment and see their new smile for the first time is always a joy! I offer chairside care, to support our patient and Dr. B during procedures. I also create appliances in our lab, am the radiographic coordinator, and order supplies. It’s great to work in a positive office where we help people love their smiles!
My husband Dan and I have two grown children, two grandchildren, and a dog named Jared. In my spare time, I enjoy being with family and friends, walking with Jared, and bike riding, reading, and cooking.
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!
Orthodontic Social Coordinator
I enjoy time with our patients: getting to know them and their families. Witnessing each person transform as their smile changes is amazing. I love the confidence in our patients when they finish treatment and have a smile they’re thrilled to share! I welcome everyone when they arrive, check them in, and update their information. I also verify insurance benefits, schedule visits, and answer the phone. In addition, I develop and oversee all our contests and social media outreach.
When I’m not working, I love being outside, especially camping, kayaking, snowboarding, and playing volleyball. I enjoy traveling and serving the community through my church. I’ve served on mission trips, most recently to Sicily and Haiti, and like exploring other cultures.
I love witnessing the transformation of smiles and personalities. Our patients blossom, gaining confidence and increased self-esteem as a result of the care we provide! Working at the front desk, I greet patients and check them in. I maintain our schedule so we run smoothly, and handle patient tracking. I also communicate with referring offices, handle accounting and social media projects, and oversee our HIPAA compliance, too.
Originally from Traverse City, my favorite place on earth is a Lake Michigan beach. I’ve traveled and lived all over the world and always enjoy being with my three grown children. I like going to estate sales, exploring new places, and reading historical fiction. I’m also a big-time animal lover!
