Michelle- Front Desk
I grew up with 10 siblings in Dayton, OH. I met my husband, Chris, in High School and since he was in the military afterwards, we traveled alot. The part of my job that I really like is meeting new patients and their families, getting to know them, and talking and laughing with them on a friendly level. Giving and sharing kindness, encouragement, support and friendship is one of my favorite aspects of this job! Just knowing that our patients finish treatment with a great smile, inside and out, makes me thrilled! I love spending time with Chris, our children, and our granddaughter in the Hocking Hills.
Andrea- Chairside Assistant
I graduated from The South Western Career Academy where I obtained my certificate in dental assisting. My favorite part of my job is watching a patient come in who is shy because of the way their teeth look, and upon completion of treatment, they have become a completely different person, showing the biggest smile and so much confidence that they could conquer the world. It's a great feeling to know that I was part of the process. Our practice is a really fun place and I want all of our patients to be a comfortable as possible when they're in treatment. I love spending time with my husband Josh and our daughter Alivia. We enjoy spending time outdoors and making memories with Alivia.
Lori- Treatment Coordinator
I graduated from The Ohio State University with my degree in Dental Hygiene and Zoology. Orthodontics has been my passion ever since! I feel so blessed to be part of a profession I love so much I truly believe that if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life! My husband Steve and I live on a hobby farm outside Hilliard where we enjoy our dogs, cats, cows and chickens. Someday we hope to raise baby goats! In our spare time we enjoy being outdoors hiking, biking and kayaking. I look forward to meeting you when you visit us here at Scioto Orthodontics!
Ericka- Chairside Assistant
I have worked in orthodontics for 7 years. I love watching the progress that each patient makes visit after visit. In my time away from the office, I stay busy with my two boys, spend time traveling, and cheer on the OSU Buckeyes and Blue Jackets.
Vanessa- Chairside Assistant
I am from Maracaibo, Venezuela, and was a practicing dentist there for several years. I enjoy playing soccer, hanging with friends, and going to parks and summer barbeques. In 2016 I immigrated to the United States with the eventual hope of becoming an orthodontist. I love sharing my happiness and optimistic personality with others. My favorite color is purple. One of my dreams is to go to Spain to see the classic soccer match between Real Madrid and Barcelona. I believe it's never too late to do new things and I love learning about American culture.
