I love meeting new patients and families each day at our office. I am proud to introduce our new patients to our office and I take pride in the different seasonal decorations that we put up around the office to keep it warm and fresh for returning patients. I work as a liaison between patients, their parents, and the doctors to ensure that all questions and concerns are answered to the best of my abilities. It is very enjoyable to work with our upbeat and caring team who are always concerned about our patient’s well-being. I am a married and we have two children and two grandchildren.
I feel very fortunate to have been part of the great team at our growing office for nearly twenty years. During this time, I have found the work to be incredibly rewarding because of how much I enjoy working with all of our patients. I make sure their visits are pleasant and memorable from start to finish. I especially value seeing our younger patients grow up into young confident people equipped with dazzling smiles that I helped them achieve. Outside the office, I look forward to any time I can spend with my family and friends. I like being active but will gladly sit down for a good movie.
I work to connect with patients on both professional and personal levels. I want all patients to receive the best treatment and feel like they are part of our family. I arrange all appointments efficiently trying to work with each patient’s schedule so that it leaves the smallest impact possible. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my four children as well as playing baseball.
I have been dedicated to the Chatham Orthodontics' team since Fall 1989. It is always a great experience coming to the office that I am proud to be part of. I help to create our patient's smiles by assisting the doctors and hygienists to take impressions, x-rays, prepare for braces to be placed, sterilize instruments and teach patient's how to take care of their teeth and wear orthodontic appliances. I take part in helping patients grow, gain confidence, and create beautiful smiles by the end of treatment. Seeing the patient's finished smiles is the most rewarding part of my position. I am so confident in our incredible results, that all three of our children were treated at this office by Drs. Brown and McHugh. I am happily married and keep extremely busy with our children’s many sports and activities. I also enjoy traveling and visiting with family and friends.
As a previous patient in my teens, I have seen first hand, the impressive skills and positive attitude of the Chatham Orthodontics' team. I feel privileged to be part of their team. My duties in the office include assisting chairside, sterilization, taking digital X-rays, taking specific impressions and wax bites and taking detailed photo images. I make it a priority to explain each procedure and will answer any questions to make each patient feel comfortable and at ease throughout his or her treatment. In my spare time, I love to experience new things with my husband and two children. I like to keep busy traveling, riding bikes, camping, playing baseball, going to the beach, and just being with my friends and family.
I love seeing the progress and the end results of all the patients that come to the office. I love the excitement of each patient at the end of their treatment. I feel fortunate to be a part of such a great team. Out of the office, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I am married and we have two young boys.
Each day I am committed to creating a great experience for patients by preparing teeth for braces, changing wires and fitting retainers and other types of appliances with a warm and friendly attitude. I am proud to be a part of an amazing team of people and look forward to helping patients to achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. In my spare time, I enjoy drawing, camping, hiking and spending time with my friends and family.
Patients can always count on me to keep a positive outlook on each situation. I know the incredible smiles we deliver very well, and am happy to set the tone with gentle reminders of how great each patient’s teeth will look after our treatments. I work to make each experience fun as I prepare patient teeth for braces, place retainers, and do oral hygiene education. Healthy teeth for life is my goal. I am married and we have two young sons. I love spending time with my family and friends, I also enjoy snowboarding in winter.
I look for ways to connect with each patient. I want to best help them to be comfortable throughout their time with us. This is my goal as I do intra-oral procedures like preparing teeth for braces, changing wires, and helping with retainers. I like the challenge of building my professional skills, but in the end, what I really enjoy is seeing the beautiful smiles that result from everyone’s hard work and patience. I am happily married, and we have a daughter. I enjoy cooking Lebanese food, volunteering at my daughter’s school, and traveling. I have visited over 15 different countries and am fluent in Lebanese.
I have been working at our office for 24 years now, and enjoy every day I have working with our orthodontic patients. I always try to help our patients have fun while they are at the office. It is also important to me that they have a good experience and have good progress at each visit. I believe our work can affect our patients’ lives by boosting their confidence and sense of self-worth. The goal is helping each patient gain this by way of achieving the healthiest, most brilliant smile possible.
My goal is to build a positive relationship with each patient and their family through genuine interest in who they are behind their teeth. I find all conversations about hobbies, pets, and accomplishments very interesting. Also, a foundation of trust makes my job- placing bands, changing wires, taking impressions, inserting appliances, and removing braces- much more efficient and enjoyable. I feel privileged to be part of the whole process from the day our patients’ braces are placed to the day they are removed, because I get to see the great smiles develop. I am happily married. We have three children who are all grown up and two dogs. I enjoy any time I get to spend with my family, traveling, and volunteering at my local church.
Dental Assistant/Lab Technician
My favorite part of coming to work is customizing all the different oral care appliances to fit each patient’s specific needs. Patients often find me in the lab pouring and mounting models, making retainers, and rapid palatal expanders (RPEs). It is very rewarding to know that my work contributes to the phenomenal smiles our patients obtain after treatments at our office. I am married and have two girls. I enjoy swimming, photography, scrapbooking, and reading.
