Meet the Team
After practicing as a Dental Hygienist for several years I am excited to be in a new career with Minich Orthodontics.
As Treatment Coordinator, I assist Dr. Minich with new patient consultations and guide patients to their new beautiful smiles!
Outside of work I enjoy reading, cooking/baking, traveling and making jewelry.
I love working in the dental field. With 12+ years’ experience, I find it rewarding to help patients plan the financial aspect of treatment to create a beautiful smile.
When not in the office I enjoy socializing, traveling, reading, and spending time with my 2 children Ava and Jayden, pup Lily and Husband Doug.
Patient Care Coordinator
I have worked in Orthodontics as a Treatment Coordinator for 8 years and I absolutely love what I do! Seven of these years were spent with an orthodontic practice in Raleigh, NC. I moved to Ohio a year ago with my soon to be husband (wedding is next month!) and feel so lucky to have found Minich Orthodontics. I am back doing what I love and working with an amazing team!
Certified Orthodontic Assistant
I love hearing our patients’ stories and sharing in their lives. We become friends, and I like that my work helps people I care about develop great dental health and incredible smiles! Seeing each patient become more confident in their smile is very rewarding. I help Dr. Minich during procedures and support the patient at the same time. I also maintain our clinical inventory and am our practice’s infection control coordinator.
I’m married and have three grown sons as well as three amazing grandchildren. Outside of doting on my grandchildren, I enjoy golfing and ballroom dancing.
Certified Orthodontic Assistant and Clinical Coordinator
I enjoy getting to know our patients and their families. It’s so much fun to learn about their hobbies and hear about their adventures. We’re always laughing together. The best part of my work, though, is seeing each person’s finished smile! As clinical coordinator, I ensure we run on time and each patient receives great care. I also provide chairside assistance and review oral hygiene with patients, so their teeth stay in great condition during treatment.
My life is shared with my boyfriend Justin, and two dogs, Apollo and Tyson. When not working, I like walking, riding my bike in the Metro-parks, and camping.
I love working with my hands: crafting custom dental appliances for our patients. Each person has unique needs, and I spend the day in our in-house lab, making expanders, retainers, and other orthodontic devices. These appliances are used to move teeth into proper position, and at the end of treatment, ensure they remain in place. It’s rewarding to be part of making beautiful smiles happen and to work with a great team at Minich Orthodontics!
