Meet The Team


At North Shore Orthodontics, we see our patients as part of our extended family, and we will go above and beyond because that’s what family does. We want you to feel the care and attention to detail we put into what we do, and we want you to enjoy coming to see us!

We also recognize that we could not do this without our amazing team. We hand-selected each person who works here carefully, choosing people who are passionate about taking care of others and who believe in the power of community. Our team sets the tone for the entire office, and at the end of each day, we want to feel proud of what we have achieved together, as a group.
