Our caring team at Springfield Orthodontics
The staff at Springfield Orthodontics are warm, friendly, and care about your well being. Our employees are all experienced in patient care and we continue to provide ongoing staff training in attempt to improve our clinical expertise. We are proud to have a low staff turn over. This helps with familiarity for our patients and is wonderful for the family atmosphere in the office.
The health and well being of your teeth is our primary concern so we work with patients to maintain and improve their oral hygiene. But we also want to hear about your day at school, about your recent baseball game or dance recital – we want you to look forward to coming to see us.
I am an orthodontic assistant and assist doctors during orthodontic procedures. The best part of working here is the fact that our team is clinically involved and personally invested with the patients. I also enjoy talking to the patients because I had braces and know what they are going through.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I’m obsessed with Beauty and the Beast, and basketball has always been a hobby of mine.
As the billing coordinator and front desk receptionist, I bill insurance, process payments, set up contracts, schedule appointments, and answer our phones. I have worked with our doctors in this practice since 2000, and truly love what I do! I love working with the doctors because of the care and time they give to every patient. The best part of what I do is seeing a child walk out with a gorgeous smile after treatment!
I am married with three children. I also have two beautiful grandchildren that make me smile every day. I love the beach and traveling anywhere warm with family and friends.
I am our financial specialist and I speak with parents and patients, helping them navigate through the orthodontic world. I also explain and set up financial contracts and verify insurance eligibility and benefits. I started working in our office in 1994. Having been with the office for such a long time, I consider our doctors as part of my family, and am proud to say that they really do care about each patient and the outcome of each patient’s case.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, and I have two grown children. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I recently got involved with a Breast Cancer Awareness Group since I am a survivor myself.
I am an Orthodontic Assistant and I work closely with Dr. Thomas and Dr. Colleen in all aspects of orthodontic patient care. The thing I like most about my job at Springfield Orthodontics is watching the patients from start to finish and seeing how happy they are with their improved smiles. I also enjoy getting to know all of our patients.
I am an avid sports fan and enjoy watching any kind of sports in person and on TV. I also like to spend time playing with my dog, Bubba.
IMy duties as orthodontist assistant include record taking, assisting in placement of braces, adjusting wires, assisting in removals, and any other necessary assisting to the orthodontist. You may also see my scheduling appointments or hear my voice on the phone when I'm filling in as receptionis. I have been working here since 2005, and my favorite part of the job is seeing transformations of smiles over a few months in treatment seeing how happy people are by having a beautiful smile.
I am married with three children who have all been patients here. I grew up in Delaware County and my children attended school in the Springfield School District. I enjoy running, biking, and spending time outdoors with my family.
