Front office team
Our front office team is here to help with all your scheduling, financial, and insurance needs. Most often, they’ll be the first smiling faces you’ll see when you come into the office. They’re always available to answer any question you may have and they want to make your time here as pleasant, comfortable, and stress-free as possible. They always try to provide the very best customer service available to ensure you not only get an effective and excellent outcome from your treatment, but also enjoy your time in our office.
I am super excited to have joined the wonderful family of Aurora Orthodontics & Periodontics. I enjoy being able to help coordinate the running of the office and guide our patients with their financial and treatment options. I have been in the dental field for 20 years, and truly enjoy what I do. I graduated in 2002 from NLU with a Bachelor’s degree in Business and Marketing which has greatly enhanced my management skills. I look forward to continuing shaping our patient’s smiles!
Cherry: Treatment Coordinator
I have been working in Dentistry for 5 years now, and I love it. One of my passions is helping others, and here at Aurora Orthodontics and Periodontics I am able to do just that. Being one of the first ones you will meet either walking into our office or scheduling an appointment over the phone, my goal is to provide you with the best customer service and making you feel part of our family. In my spare time I enjoy watching movies or baking with my handsome son and husband.

Our Dental Assistants
Our orthodontic assistant help to place braces, change wires, take any necessary X-rays and photographs, and give instruction on the best ways to take care of your braces or appliance. Sarah and Vero loves meeting new patients and take the time to make sure your treatment is an easy, comfortable and all-around positive experience from the moment you enter the door. Staying on top of technology is of great importance to our assistants, and they can be found taking continuing training classes throughout the year in order to make your treatment as effective and efficient as possible. Our assistants look forward to helping you or your child gain the self-esteem and confidence that comes with a beautiful, straight smile.
We are fortunate to have exceptional dental assistants. Sarah and Vero not only assure that our time together in treatment goes smoothly, but are involved as oral hygiene educators, providing pre- and post-surgical care and are responsible for much of the behind the scenes support, such as sterilization, cleanliness, and infection control.
