Stephanie – Orthodontic Assistant
I have been an orthodontic assistant since 2008. I never smiled because I hated the gap between my front teeth. Finally I got braces as an adult. From there, I wanted to help others transform. It is amazing to see a person’s confidence and self-esteem grow as their smile improves. I love braces! Outside of work, I am a wife and mother of three. My wonderful kids are entering their teen years, and it appears I am regressing to not knowing anything. Luckily our dog and cat still think I am pretty cool. In my old age I sometimes go play golf with my husband, enjoy crafting and scrap booking, love interior design, and being outdoors.
