tina Tina

I have a long history at the Center for Orthodontics. I was once a patient, and loved this place so much that I wanted to be a part of the team! I assist the doctors, take photos, X-rays, and am in charge of monitoring our Invisalign® patients. My family and I love the outdoors. We fish and hunt turkey, deer, and squirrels.


melissa Melissa

I am an assistant and lab technician. I love my job because I get to work with kids every day and get to know their personalities. I specialize in making retainers and working on the younger kids we have in the office. Our doctors are so fun to work with and we laugh a lot throughout the day! During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two kids, playing volleyball, and being outside.

I am our insurance and flex spending/cafeteria plan coordinator. If you have any questions regarding your benefits, I’ll help you sort it out! I also answer phones, schedule appointments, and make reminder calls. I love getting to meet new people every day! I am happily married and have 23 nieces and nephews. In addition spending time with my family, I also enjoy cooking, reading, traveling, and collecting antiques.

I am the first face you will see when you walk in the door! I greet patients, and am also the front office coordinator. I make sure everything is running smoothly and that your time while in the office is pleasant. I was a patient here when I was younger and decided that I wanted to become a part of this great place. Here I am, 30 years later, and still loving every minute of it. The atmosphere here is amazing and so much fun! I am married and have one daughter. My leisure activities include cooking, reading, and gardening.

hifsy Hifsy

I schedule patients, answer phones, and help with any odd jobs around the office. Working here has been so much fun! It has allowed me to use my background in public relations and my passion for trying new things. I was raised in Texas, but have lived in more places than I can remember. I am newly married and have a Beagle that we adore. I speak fluent Spanish and have dreams of traveling the world and learning at least two more languages. I enjoy working with people, reading, working out, and spending time with family and friends.


kathy Kathy

I am our head lab technician. I am in charge of making appliances and retainers, and I pride myself in making them fit perfectly and comfortably! Having a lab in our office makes it so much more convenient for patients since we can make their new retainers the same day. I love what I do and think working here is a blast! In my free time, I enjoy painting, decorating, and spending time with my family.


jayne Jayne

I’ve been assisting at the Center for Orthodontics since high school and have loved every minute! I love the interaction with patients of all ages; I’ll always be glad to see you! Orthodontics is so fulfilling, and helping our patients achieve a beautiful and healthy smile is amazing. Some of my interests outside the office are reading, going to craft fairs, and my love for animals. I am a huge fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and Mizzou Tigers!

Neisha Neisha

I’m an orthodontic assistant. I enjoy taking x-rays, progress photos, and impressions on new patients' teeth. I especially enjoy seeing patients' smiles after their braces come off. I live in Poplar Bluff, and in my free time I like to go shopping and hang out with my friends.


cindy Cindy

As our clinic coordinator, I make sure the clinic is flowing appropriately. My goal is to make sure your time is used efficiently and you get on with your day! I love that I can have fun while I’m working and that’s easy to do with our great team. I live in New Hamburg with my husband and enjoy gardening in my spare time.



I’m an orthodontic assistant and sterilization specialist. I love seeing so many people positively affected by our doctors’ work. It is amazing to see how patients’ teeth began and see how excited they are to get their braces off. I live in Jackson with my husband and two children. I enjoy working out, reading, and watching my kids’ various sporting activities.
