Hi there! I make sure that everything runs smoothly in both our offices. My highest priority is our patients' comfort and satisfaction. The best part of my job is getting to know patients and discovering what we can improve to make their orthodontic experience even better!
Hello, I am an orthodontic assistant, and I have been working in our practice since 2005. I help our doctors position braces and bands, deliver removable and fixed appliances, collect full diagnostic records, take Invisalign records, monitor daily lab activities, and other clinical duties. I have been in the dental field since 1997, and truly love helping people get the smiles of their dreams! When I am not in the office, I love spending time with my husband and daughter.
As an orthodontic assistant, my duties include taking X-rays, adjusting retainers, ordering inventory, and patient checkout and scheduling. I have been part of our wonderful team since 2001, and love taking the time to gain our patients' trust. Some of our patients are nervous coming in for the first time, and I enjoy chatting with them and making sure they are comfortable. After work, you can usually find me playing baseball with my husband and son.
I have been an orthodontic assistant in our office since 2004, and have been in the dental field since 2000. My duties include working with our doctors to provide patient care, taking X-rays, labwork, and patient checkout and scheduling. I love working with our patients one-on-one, getting to know them and hearing about their lives and families. After work, I enjoy baking for small events, churches, schools and my co-workers. I also love bowling!
As patient coordinator, I answer the phones, schedule patient appointments, check patients in and out, verify insurance, and work with the Orthotrac software and computers, including all word procession programs that are in the office. Dr. Bruster and Dr. Carter are wonderful to work with. They both are very caring and compassionate about their patients. I enjoy coming to work everyday! In my family, my husband and I have one son, who attends Jacksonville State University, our beloved Golden Retriever, Beau will be missed. We have most recently acquired a new addition to our family, Maxwell "Max" O'Reilly, a Golden Retriever with quite the character.
