How long have you worked at Cavanaugh Ortho?
I’ve worked at Cavanaugh Orthodontics for about 9 years. I’ve also had the wonderful opportunity to work with Dr. Tom Cavanaugh in the past.


What is your favorite part about working in orthodontics?
I love meeting new people. The Doctors and the staff make it fun to come to work everyday, I enjoy working with everyone. I really like seeing the patients smiling faces on the day they get their braces off, they are so excited. Some patients are just as excited to get their braces on, believe it or not. I also like to see how much the patients have grown up and matured over the few years that they are in treatment with us.
