Danette

Office Manager / Treatment Coordinator

I am the office manager and treatment coordinator. My goal is to make every day efficient and enjoyable. I’ve loved Orthodontics ever since I had braces as a teenager. Dentistry is my passion and I really enjoy seeing all the smiling faces! Outside of the office, you will find me spending time with my family, shopping or boating & waterskiing.

Amanda H.

Insurance Coordinator

I am one of the patient care coordinators and my job is to make sure you have a great dental experience from start to finish. Part of that involves making sure patients are well informed regarding their dental treatment and insurance. I chose Pediatrics because I love kids. Dentistry, in general, has always fascinated me especially with all the new advances they are making every day! I enjoy running, reading and spending time with my family – my husband, our 2-year-old daughter Harper, and our 9-year-old son Kingston.

I also love kids so this job is perfect! In my free time, I love anything outdoors, trying new foods, and most of all spending time with my son, Hendrix.

Brittany
