I graduated from Traviss in 2019 as a Certified Dental Assistant. Not only am I passionate about creating beautiful smiles, I take pride in knowing that I have played a role in helping people achieve confidence in their smile. Our teamwork here is amazing. Everyone is so welcoming and kind, and we all share the same common goal of treating our patients with the highest level of care.
I am a mother of two, and love to spend time with my family on my days off. Our favorite hobby is kayaking the rivers of Florida any chance we get.
I completed my dental assistant program at Indiana University Northwest back in 2016. I have my expanded functions certification in both Indiana and Florida. At Scott Orthodontics, everyone is so friendly and has a great sense of humor. I love that the doctors are very encouraging and so appreciative of all the work we all put in. I also love that my job is very hands on and allows me to see my patients' smiles change over time!
Outside of work, you'll find me either at Disney world with my sister or my boyfriend, at the gym, or at home hanging out with my two dogs, Ellie and Jackson, and my boyfriend, Cody.
I began working with Scott Orthodontics in 2022. My job entails the process of cleaning trays, sterilizing and bagging instruments, and making sure our staff has easy access to the things they need throughout the day. I love the process of organizing, cleaning, and prepping our sterilization room for my team. I appreciate that everyone is very friendly and helpful.
I have two cats. I love animals and I enjoy going to the beach to surf as well as camping when I have free time.
I have experience in clinic work and appointment coordinating and am glad I joined Scott Orthodontics.

I love working with my doctors and the rest of my team because the office has such a positive energy!
Outside of work, I love spending time with my family!
I attended dental school abroad in 2010. After finishing my junior year, I came to the US and started working as an orthodontic assistant. I have had the privilege of working with experienced doctors in south Florida, New Jersey, New York, and now Florida. This experience has allowed me to gain great knowledge of a variety of orthodontic procedures and techniques.
I assist the doctors during orthodontic treatment, take medical records, handle orthodontic instruments, and give oral hygiene and appliance care instructions to patients. I enjoy treating patients, helping them overcome their fears, and making them feel comfortable and satisfied with their treatment. The doctors and the team at Scott Orthodontics have create a very nice environment with a strong focus on empathy and patient care.
My fiancé and I moved to central Florida with our 3-year-old boy, our two dogs and our cat. While I am still discovering our community, I am hoping to find a place to continue my tae-kwon-do classes. Our family enjoys spending weekend afternoons at a nearby playground where our son enjoys Florida's nice weather. On rainy days, I always enjoy a good reading, a nice movie, or spending some time crafting decorations with my cricut equipment. I love decorating events such as birthday parties, anniversaries, and baby showers.
I have been in the dental field since 1996, gaining experience in dental assisting, expanded functions, and orthodontic expanded functions. At Scott Orthodontics since 2020, I assist the doctors with patient treatment and work hard to help patients feel comfortable during the process and being part of their journey to love their smiles. I really enjoy seeing our patients' transitions and progress throughout treatment. The best part is seeing their results after their braces are removed!
Outside of work, I love spending time with my children, fishing, playing at the park, and going to the beach.
I started my AA degree in general health at Polk State College and continued my education in the dental field with Dental Career Schools of Tampa Bay and am EFDA certified. Scott Orthodontics has a great family atmosphere and is encouraging and driven to help our patients everyday as well as our team members. We are passionate about our jobs, so we have fun!
My job entails greeting new patients and taking the X-rays, photos, and scans so the treatment coordinator and doctors can find the best treatment plan for their new smile! I also help my team where I am needed in the office. I love working with patients, helping them start the process of treatment, and collaborating with my team to accomplish new smiles every day. I also enjoy working hands on in the lab and helping where I am needed.
I love taking fun trips to the beach with my friends and family as well as traveling to new places. I have a passion for animals and have a horse, cats, and dogs. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with the people I love.
I love working with my doctors and the rest of my team because we are not just a team, we're a family. We are always willing to help each other out. My favorite part about my job is seeing patients from beginning to end - the transformation. When their smile changes, their confidence grows. It makes me happy to work in a field where I can make a change in someone's life.
I have a daughter and a yorkie. On my days off, I'm typically at a theme park and if I'm on vacation you can probably find me in Puerto Rico. I love to travel and spend time with my family.

I studied dental assisting at Traviss Technical College and passed three DANB exams to become a Certified Dental Assistant and have been part of the team at Scott Orthodontics since 2019. I assist the doctors in the clinic and help make patients comfortable while being part of their journey toward a healthy and beautiful smile. I oversee the lab to make retainers, Scott Aligners, and oversee all Invisalign® and appliances. There is nothing better than seeing our patients’ smiles transform from beginning to end and creating special bonds with them during their time here.
Though I have not yet been many places, I love traveling! When I am not working, I enjoy riding horses, spending time with family and friends, and relaxing.
As an orthodontic assistant, I work alongside the doctors and assist with wire changes, bracket placement, and impressions to provide patients with the highest level of treatment in their orthodontic care.

I have been a dental assistant and sterilization tech since 2016, and have learned so much from Dr. Scott, Dr. Jon and our team since joining the office in 2018. Every day I come to work looking forward to the patients I’m going to see and talk with. Each of them is unique and wonderful, and I love the conversations that happen while I’m assisting in their orthodontic care. It is rewarding to help people obtain beautiful, straight teeth.
When I’m not at work, I like to be outdoors and go to the gym. I’m always up for a challenge, whether it’s easy or hard. I stay determined and always want to learn more!
I earned my Bachelor of Science in public relations from the University of Florida in 2009 and brought my knowledge and experience to Dr. Scott’s office in 2018.

I met my husband, Dr. Jon, during our undergraduate studies at the University of Florida. The greatest blessings in our lives are our two young children, Robert and Ellie. We also have a Golden Retriever named Lady and a mixed-breed rescue dog named Lucy. In my free time, I enjoy spending quality time with my family, horseback riding, running, and almost anything outside to soak up the beautiful Florida sunshine.
I joined our team in 1999 as a certified orthodontic assistant, and also worked many years as a treatment coordinator. As our Financial Coordinator, I work with new patients to establish their payment plans and work with families regarding any financial questions. I am also the insurance coordinator and work with patients and parents to explore their orthodontic insurance benefits and file their claims to help minimize the out-of-pocket expense.
I have been happily married to Steve for 23 years, and we have two children. Our daughter has her private practice in Lakeland as a mental health counselor, and she and her husband just welcomed our first grandchild, Mackenzie. Our son is a college student at Florida Polytechnic and has attained his private pilot's license with hopes to become a commercial airline pilot someday. In my spare time, I love riding my motorcycle, camping on weekends and enjoy cooking for my family!
Working with Dr. Scott and Dr. Jon is truly a pleasure. They are two of the best orthodontists I've ever known, and their reputation speaks for itself. We all take pride in our work and care for our patients, and it shows. It's a wonderful feeling to be a member of this great team!
