I am a clinical assistant, but I also work in the office laboratory making retainers and other orthodontic appliances.

I enjoy working with patients and helping to create beautiful smiles.

I have over 30 years of orthodontic experience and started working at Upstate Orthodontics in 2001 when the practice opened.

Office Assistant

After enjoying nearly 17 years with Upstate Orthodontics as Dr. McInnis’ business coordinator, I retired in June 2017 to assume a part-time role assisting the front desk.

I also assumed the responsibility of managing Dr. McInnis’ photography business – which predominately prints and distributes licensed Clemson Football photographs that he has taken at the games.

I enjoy the diversity of my new role!
