Meet the Staff
Our Treatment Coordinators
Our treatment coordinators familiarize new patients with orthodontics, our practice and our office policies. They communicate with dentists and other care providers to coordinate our patient’s care. They will review your orthodontic treatment plan with you in detail, and answer any questions you may have about your plan, treatment financing, or insurance benefits.
