Megan

New Patient Coordinator and Orthodontic Technician

I love seeing confidence grow within each patient as they get closer to their dream smile, and celebrating with them when their braces are removed. It’s incredible how much happier patients are when they see what they’ve achieved: They can’t stop looking in the mirror and grinning! I assist the doctors with procedures, to support them and our patients. I also work at the front desk.

My life is shared with my husband Brandon, two children, Grayson and Millie, and our two family dogs, Rockey and Dixie. I’m active with my church’s praise team and choir. I love traveling, going to the movies, and spending time with family and friends!

Marita

Marketing and Communications Coordinator

I like seeing how our patients notice the changes happening and love their excitement when they see their finished smile! I manage our social media and communications with patients and also designed our company-branded material, including our new logo! You can find me review contracts, estimates and/or laughing with patients and their families at the front desk.

At the end of the day, I like going home to my pup, Leeloo, and binge watching shows like Game of Thrones and The Great British Bake Off.  On my days off, I love spending time with friends and family, especially if it involves shopping.

Kathy

Orthodontic Technician

I like meeting new people and learning about their lives while helping each one achieve a great smile. We serve an incredible community, and I love seeing familiar smiles outside the practice! I offer chairside assistance, to help the doctors with procedures. At the same time, I’m talking with our patients about what we’re doing and making sure they’re comfortable.

I have two great kids and sweet Bichon Frise named Bella. When I’m not working, I like hiking, tubing down the James River, kayaking, going to the beach, and being with my kids. I’m also a big sci-fi fan and especially love Star Wars.

Karen

Orthodontic Technician

I love seeing our patients grow and change during treatment. Whether I’m watching a child grow up with a beautiful smile or seeing an adult get the smile they’ve always wanted, I love it! Many patients start care saying, “I don’t smile.” As their teeth shift, patients’ self-esteem and confidence grows and they do smile! I assist the doctors with taking records, fitting bands, and placing braces. I also review home-care instructions with patients and parents and answer their questions.

My wonderful husband Jonathan and I welcomed our first child in April 2016! We have two cats but I keep hoping for dog. I’m a bit of a geek and love debating with patients about comic book characters and Lord of the Rings. I also love to cook and am active in my church.

Jennifer

Orthodontic Technician

I enjoy seeing the start to finish result of every patient that comes through our office. Whether it's a simple or a complex case, it's always a dramatic difference, and well worth the wait. Seeing our patients grow not just in age but in confidence is a wonderful experience. I look forward to meeting new people everyday, and getting to know more about them. Having a great smile is something I take pride in each and everyday, and would want all of our patients to have at the end of their treatment. 

In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. Whether watching movies or shopping you can count me in. I also enjoy traveling and taking spur of the moment trips!


McKayla

Orthodontic Technician

I enjoy watching patients’ reactions when their treatment is over because they feel so confident in their smile and I can relate because I once was in treatment myself. I assist the doctors in assuring patients are comfortable in the different procedures that are performed. I love meeting new people and interacting with our patients. I’m so thrilled I get to work with such a great and supportive team! 

I love spending time with my family, my boyfriend, being pool-side and taking care of my puppy Ollie!  I also enjoy cleaning and binge watching anything on Netflix.

Kristina

Patient Coordinator

Growing up, I was always interested in someone’s smile. Today, I am very eager to see a patient’s transition from start to finish. They seem to gain confidence with each appointment and that is very rewarding to me. When the big day rolls around and it’s time for the braces to come off, it’s like we are seeing an entirely different person leave the office! Watching my skilled coworkers interact with our patients day to day is also very refreshing, as we have an amazing group of individuals that make up DO. All I can say is that a smile goes a long way and that makes me love my job at the end of the day.

In my free time I love spending quality time with my English Mastiff, Gypsy. I also love to fish and catch up on sleep when time allows!
