We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.
We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
The front office team at Smile Straight Orthodontics — Aaron, Nancy A., Monica, and Amanda — is here to help you schedule visits, answer questions about insurance, financing, and treatment, and update your records. In addition to checking you in and out, they accept payments, answer the phones, keep our reception area clean and welcoming, and are the first smiling faces you’ll see. They will always greet you by name and with warmth; they’re glad you’re here!
Aaron loves meeting new people and building lasting friendships with our patients. Seeing people develop life-changing smiles, and being part of that experience, keeps him loving his job!

The family has a mare, Nena, and they go horseback riding on weekends.
Amanda loves interacting on a personal level with our patients. She’s always excited to meet new people, welcome them to the practice, and learn about their lives!

She loves being with family and friends, laughter and happiness, and is a passionate reader, too.
Our back office team members — Abraham, Diana, Nancy V., Shell, and Jessica — work hard to ensure every visit goes smoothly. They keep our space sterile, stocked, and organized.
