When I had braces as a child, I watched as they helped their patients to be confident in their smiles and had fun while doing it. It was then that I decided I wanted to be an orthodontic assistant. First, I went to York County School of Technology and became a dental assistant. Later, I became an orthodontic assistant, I got my EFDA license at YTI, and now I am pursuing a business degree. I love to learn, grow, and have a positive impact on other’s lives. I have been in the dental field since 2007, and I am thrilled to be the Clinical Supervisor and Marketing Coordinator at ALO. It has given me the opportunity to challenge myself, help others strive for excellence, and get rewarded with seeing those beautiful smiles.
After spending years working in a business oriented setting, I decided I needed a career that was more fulfilling. So with that said, I attended DATS of Maryland where I received my dental assisting certification. After experiencing Orthodontics during my externship, I knew I had found my passion and continued my education to become a certified Orthodontic assistant. After four years as an assistant, I recently moved over to the administration side of things as a financial coordinator. I love seeing the transformation of our patients from start to finish. The first smile after treatment is just so special. Being a member of a team that is passionate and loves what they do is why I love working at ALO.
Having over 25 years of experience within the dental field, starting within general dentistry, and later joining ALO in 2000 as an orthodontic assistant. Since that time, I have gained so much experience by transitioning into a treatment coordinator and, now, a member of the ALO leadership team – working as Carlisle’s office administrator. My extensive orthodontic training, knowledge, and expertise allows me to provide our patients with the best care possible. Being a member of the ALO team allows me to create beautiful smiles, while building confidence within our patients. My family is also very important to me, and I greatly enjoy watching my daughter compete in equestrian events.
Before joining the ALO team, I graduated from West Chester University with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. While in college, I also served in the Army National Guard. I enjoyed the teamwork aspect of the National Guard and the business aspect of college. I have also always loved working one-on-one with patients. I knew I wanted to work in a field that combined all of my interests, and that is why I am excited to be a here at Apicella-Lorei Orthodontics! I enjoy working with the team and strive to positively impact each of our patients.
I joined Apicella-Lorei Orthodontics knowing my love for helping others and my desire to go above and beyond would align perfectly with their team. I am highly motivated to constantly develop my skills and grow professionally. I’m known as the “tech girl” for my friends and family, so I am not afraid to take on a challenge. I am ecstatic about my journey with the ALO Team! When I’m not focused on work, I love to enjoy a nice cup of coffee!
I have been an ALO team member since 1972, working as a certified orthodontic assistant. I now work part-time in the ALO Business Office, but still maintain my orthodontic assisting certification. I feel that I chose this profession because my father had the most beautiful teeth and I believe I got my smile and teeth from him. However, due to medications related to epilepsy he lost his teeth. In a way, I believe I am preserving or honoring him by seeing the many beautiful smiles that have been created throughout my long career. It is also very rewarding to meet all of our wonderful patients and families, and being able to see the changes in their smiles that our practice provides. While I enjoy spending quality time with my family, I enjoy being here so much and love being with my “work family”.
I joined the ALO team in 1998, I have been a certified orthodontic assistant since 2000 who loves being a part of such an amazing team. I believe my passion for helping patients achieve that beautiful smile and gain their personal confidence, makes my role within the team so rewarding. One of my best attributes to the ALO team is my ability to communicate and adapt to each individual patient. Over the years I have gained a great deal of knowledge and experience from both the doctors and fellow team members, all of which helps me to provide the best care to our community.
Before becoming a dental assistant, I enjoyed volunteering at my local church and schools. It was something I could do with my family and family is very important to me. My family and I are Disney fanatics and we love traveling to Disney World and other places throughout the country.
I graduated from HACC with a certificate in dental assisting. I have always had an interest in Dentistry but was not heading towards Orthodontics until I completed an externship at ALO. Seeing patients complete their treatment and gaining confidence from their new smiles is so rewarding. It is also rewarding to know I am now part of an amazing team that impacts people’s lives.
