Administrative Assistant/Receptionist

I've been working at this practice since 1981 with the exception of a two-year break in 2004. My favorite part about this job is meeting and getting to know the patients and their families. It's also a joy to see the children transform during their treatment!

I’ve been married to my amazing husband Victor for 30 years. We have two children, Nick and Gina. Our black lab Ellie is also a special part of our family. In my spare time I enjoy snowmobiling, cooking, and just spending time with my family and friends.

It's a great feeling being able to help our patients achieve their best smile and to build their confidence. The entire team truly cares about our patients and we all work well together.

Betsy

Treatment Coordinator and Orthodontic Assistant

I'm responsible for meeting and greeting all new and re-exam patients. Along with providing chairside assistance, I also sit in on consultations with the doctors and go over the treatment plan and financials with patients. I love what I do from start to finish; from a patient’s first visit to his or her final appointment where their finished smile shines and they have a new sense of pride and accomplishment. We are so lucky to have worked with some of the best orthodontists in the field and have done so for many years.

Outside of work I love spending time with my children and grandchildren. I also like to scrapbook, and with six wonderful grandchildren I get a lot of “scrapping” done.
