Clinical Assistant / Lab Technician
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.
