Orthodontic Assistant

I love seeing the satisfaction and happiness of people when they finish treatment! It’s a good feeling to be part of a team that’s encouraging and helpful to each other and our patients. Working in the clinic, I assist Dr. Powell with routine orthodontic appointments and educate and encourage patients to keep up with their home care.

I love spending my time off with my son and enjoy exploring new places.

I enjoy working with a great group of people, all of us focused on keeping our patients smiling during treatment! I work at our front desk, where I welcome and check in our patients, schedule future visits, and answer the phones. It’s amazing to watch patients change, from visit to visit, as they see their new smile appear!

I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family, especially my two beautiful children.

I like working on our patients, helping each on their way to a great smile. It’s fun to get to know people during treatment and see how their new smile changes everything about their lives! This is an incredible practice, where everyone works hard to achieve great smiles. I assist Dr. Powell with different orthodontic procedures and maintain our clinical inventory.

Two of my favorite things in the world: I love animals and I love to cook!

I enjoy working with my hands and knowing the appliances I create help each patient develop their best smile! I trim, organize, and file models in our onsite lab. I also fabricate different orthodontic appliances according to Dr. Powell’s specifications. Our office feels like a big family, with all of us caring about each other and our patients!

My favorite hobbies include photography, hiking, kayaking, camping, and traveling. I’m married and we have three dogs and one cat.

I like helping our patients and parents understand and get the most from their insurance benefits. I’m the main contact for patient insurance questions and I track and file all insurance-related information. I also assist at the front desk when needed. We have a wonderful team here that feels like a second family; my coworkers and our patients and their families!

I spend my free hours with loved ones. I am married and have two amazing kids and two fur babies.

Kristie

Business Manager

I enjoy meeting the families of our patients and working with our staff to make differences in their lives. I oversee all financial matters and handle advertising and public relations for the practice. I also take care of administrative duties, supervise the front desk operations and staff, handle software issues, and am the point of contact for school-business partnerships. It’s rewarding to work for a doctor who is second-to-none and with a team that goes above and beyond to help our patients!

I’m married and have three grown sons and lots of fur babies. I love the outdoors, especially the Great Smoky Mountains. I love to travel and go on adventures with my Harley Davidson motorcycle, too. I am also a proud supporter of the University of Alabama football team…Roll Tide Roll!

I enjoy getting to know our patients and parents and seeing the big, beautiful smiles when people are finished with treatment! My coworkers feel like my family and that’s reflected in how we care about each other and our patients and their families.

Orthodontic Records Assistant

I like watching each person’s changes as they go through their treatment. I meet people when they start, taking their initial records, and then I document their progress, seeing how they become happier and more confident as their smile changes. I also handle clinical duties when needed. We have a wonderful family atmosphere at this office, all of us united in our goal to provide the best orthodontic experience!

I enjoy walking my dog and kayaking during my free hours.

Sarah

Orthodontic Assistant

I like to take care of my patients and make them smile during their visits! It’s the best feeling when a patient who used to feel self-conscious about their teeth smiles at me and is happy with the way their teeth look! Everyone on our team is friendly and helpful and that keeps our patients smiling. I handle a range of clinical duties and assist Dr. Powell with orthodontic procedures.

I enjoy spending my free time outdoors with my family, especially when we’re exploring new places. I love to make others laugh and treasure good conversations, too.

Susan

Treatment Coordinator

I like meeting new people and enjoy the interaction I have with our patients. It’s fulfilling to help them with treatment and build real relationships with each person while they’re seeing us. I assist Dr. Powell with initial exams and explain treatment options. I also educate patients and parents on the proper care of braces and importance of oral hygiene, serve as the main contact for patients prior to starting treatment, and coordinate appointments for patients with other offices. We have a brilliant boss and team who provide excellent care in a friendly, compassionate, and encouraging environment!

I am married and have five grown daughters, four kids-in-law, and two dogs. I love being outdoors, whether I’m working in the yard and gardening or going kayaking, walking, bike riding, or running, and – most of all – playing with my grandson. I also love my church, Mosaic UMC, and doing mission work in our community.
