Julie is your treatment coordinator; she joined the team in June of 2016. She started in orthodontics as an assistant and absolutely loved working on the patients and their braces. She moved into treatment coordination only because someone talked her into it. She thought she would give it a try and now can’t imagine being in any other role. Julie loves welcoming our new patients into our practice and “holding their hands” through the process to get their braces on and handing them off to our amazing assistants in the back. When she isn’t at work, Julie enjoys spending time with her husband, Stacy and their two children. She loves to cook golf and spend time with friends and family.
Wendy began her orthodontic assisting career as an ROP student in high school, (a very long time ago, LOL) She took a break to do interior designing for her Dad’s company and to raise her 2 sons. Her boys have since grown and are pursuing careers as nurses. They are her absolute PRIDE and JOY. Her favorite things to do outside the office are: spending time at the ocean, hiking, gardening and community outreach. She loves being back in orthodontics working with such an amazing team! She feels truly blessed.
