Bree is our Registered Dental Assistant and laboratory specialist. Her goal is to make patients feel calm, cool and collected so they enjoy coming to our office. She has been in the dental field for 10 years but found love for orthodontics 5 years ago. Her favorite part of orthodontics is seeing the patients smile when they get their braces off. Bree is very family oriented and loves to just hang out, laugh and eat. She also likes going to the gym and watching UFC with her husband.
