Brenda

Orthodontic Assistant

I’m here to provide chairside assistance to Dr. Radu and ensure that patients are well informed about orthodontic procedures and braces aftercare. To me, this isn’t just a job; it’s an art. It requires mastery and technique unique to the profession. The best part is watching patients change through each phase of treatment. I have to admit, I love that Dr. Radu is always up for a challenge and how, in her mind, there’s never a complicated case because everything is possible when it comes to the final product. 

I’m currently pursuing a career in nursing, particularly in the childcare arena. As I have yet to have any children of my own, it is my passion to lovingly assist, care for, and nurture our patients into strong, independent, and open-minded individuals. Coming from a family of tradition and strong moral principles, I am confident that I will be able to maintain an open mind and respect other’s traditions and principles regardless of religious, political, social, or other background. A core strength of mine would be adaptability, as I understand that no plan ever survives the first obstacle unchanged.

Carina

Lead Orthodontic Assistant, Practice Marketing

My career working in the dental field began in 2013, and has so far included one year of assisting in general dentistry and three in the orthodontic field. I began working with Dr. Radu in 2018 and love it here! The best part of my job is the connections I make with my patients. Seeing their beautiful smiles brings one to my face as well!

I have two daughters, Valeria and Olivia. Our family also includes our loving dog, Maximo. On my down time, there is nothing I’d rather do than spend time with my family.

Julia

Junior Orthodontic Assistant, Practice Marketing

I spend my days running around the office, lending a hand when and where it's needed! My job can encompass anything from chairside assisting to answering phones at the front desk; every day is different! I like seeing all of the familiar faces every time I come in! However, I'd have to say that it's the taking of before-and-after pictures with patients that I like best about the job. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing to witness the final product of treatment, but patients' excitement about their results is contagious! As great as it is to be surrounded by an enthusiastic patient base, however,  I absolutley love the camaraderie that exists between my coworkers. They are a fabulous and extremeley competent group of women. Working with them is always a pleasure.

April

Office Manager

I’m here to make our office run as smoothly as possible, which means that I can often be found coordinating treatment, putting together billing and insurance information, making retainers in the lab, and even assisting chairside when it is needed! I do just about anything to ensure that our patients leave happy and with the smiles they’ve always wanted.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my daughter Lacey and our pitbull named Mouse. I enjoy learning Spanish from my co-workers and spending (endless) time on TikTok!
