Stephanie has been in orthodontics since 1971 when she began working for her own orthodontist before going to school to be a dental assistant. She spent 15 years working as a chair-side assistant then had an orthodontic laboratory business for seven years.

Missing the interaction with patients and their families, Stephanie began working as our patient coordinator in 1994. Stephanie grew up in Carlsbad and loves baseball, entertaining and traveling with her family and friends. “The best part about having orthodontics be such a big part of my life is all the friendships I’ve made and seeing all the beautiful smiles we’ve created.”
