New Patient Coordinator
Welcome! I am one of the first smiling faces you will see when you come to your appointment! As the New Patient Coordinator, my goal is to help you from the time you make contact with our office all the way through to starting treatment! I help make sure all of your questions are answered and that you are seen on time (we are very proud of that and work hard as a team to make it happen)! I am also committed to making certain our patients and their families experience in our office is an amazing one! I help make your life easier by finding convenient appointment times (7 am anyone?) that work with your busy life!
I am originally from Nottingham, England and have enjoyed living in Virginia for over 20 years. I am happily married with two teenage boys who keep me very busy with football and basketball! My passions are dancing, traveling and my family of course!
Financial and Insurance Coordinator
Greetings! I am Jillian, your most excellent financial and insurance coordinator. I am here to make sure you receive the best orthodontic treatment with payment options that are comfortable for you! Dr. Bailey and Dr. Orchin will not let finances stand in the way of getting the treatment you want.
One of my favorite things to do in the office is assisting Melanie as treatment coordinator. I love meeting new patients and helping them as they take the first steps on their orthodontic journey. Not to mention, it is so totally cool to see the magic Dr. Orchin and Dr. Bailey work!
I was born in Fairfax, VA but slowly made my way south to Texas when I was a kid. While everything might not be better in Texas it is definitely bigger. I'm looking at you, narrow DC streets! Also, Bluebell ice cream! Have I mentioned that I like snacks? Aside from Harry Potter, snacks are my favorite hobby and I love trying all of the delicious foods that DC has to offer. My family is also pretty cool I guess. It's definitely big! As the oldest of six, I have five built-in best friends, although as any oldest child will tell you it took me a while to actually like any of them. I am currently in a loving relationship with sushi, although who knows what it will be next month! Fingers crossed for tacos.
Treatment and Marketing Coordinator
As the treatment coordinator for our incredible doctors, I am here to help you from the time you make contact with our office all the way through your treatment! At your initial consultation, I will help explain your treatment plan and answer all your questions. I will also work with you to make certain we do not let finances stand in the way of you receiving the best treatment possible. I love that I get to be a part of helping people make that first step towards having the healthy and beautiful smile they have always wanted. Plus; I like to make it fun!
While I'm originally from Asheville, North Carolina, my heart has always belonged to DC. After spending almost every summer here since I was a child, I finally decided to commit and moved to DC in 2016. An avid travel junkie, outdoors enthusiast and admitted coffee addict, when I'm not plotting my next adventure you can find me hanging out with my dog, Atlas.
Can't wait to see you; come into my office and say hi anytime!
Front Office and Scheduling Coordinator
Hello! After living in New York City for ten years, I have moved back to the Washington, D.C. area to join the orthodontic team here at Orchin Orthodontics. As the Scheduling Coordinator, I will be one of the first faces waiting to greet you upon your arrival to the office. My goal and main priority is to provide our patients with exceptional customer service, accommodating your needs and busy schedules. I am very excited to interact with our patients and assist with any questions you may have.
In my spare time, you can find me enjoying the great outdoors, hiking, traveling, or writing in a local coffee shop. I am a lover of photography, meeting new people and exploring new cities.
I grew up in Idaho and then started my orthodontic career in Orlando, Florida. I love Disney (of course!), hiking, reading, and especially traveling! I have an adorable Pomeranian puppy that is a ball of energy. We are a good match because I also love having a good time and making people laugh; it's part of why I love what I do!
I am so thankful to be part of this incredible orthodontic team helping this great family of patients! I look forward to helping improve our patients futures one smile at a time!
I really like having a positive impact on the lives of people who want to see a difference in their smiles. It’s rewarding to experience the journey to a healthy, beautiful smile with each person. I’m always focusing on our patient during their visit, to make sure he or she is comfortable and relaxed. I talk with patients about what’s going to happen during their visit, assist our doctors during procedures, as well as telling the patient what the doctor is doing and how well things are going.
I’m a proud military wife (GO NAVY!), with a wonderful stepdaughter, Kenzie. We also have two awesome kitties, Raven and Ally. By the way, I’m a huge Eagles, Phillies, and Flyers fan.
Lab Technician and Orthodontic Assistant
I love spending my days working with a great team and caring for our incredible patients. Each person brings so much positive energy to our office, and we’re always smiling and laughing. It’s wonderful to work in an environment where we make people smile while developing healthy smiles for them. I create retainers and splints in our onsite lab, along with taking images. My goal each day is to make people smile and enjoy their visits.
My daughter Ava keeps me pretty busy. We spend a lot of time together and enjoy shopping on the weekend. I love sports and like to play tennis. I also do facials and makeup with friends.
I love interacting with our patients and bringing smiles to their faces. Even the most timid of patients soon learns that ours is a fun place to visit, and that each of us is here to help them. Laughing and joking with a patient helps them relax, and it’s enjoyable, too. Who wouldn’t want to spend their day making people happy, while helping them develop an incredible smile? I assist the doctors as they care for patients, and keep the patient entertained and updated at the same time.
I have three wonderful children, Jordyn, Jhase and Jersi. I’m currently attending Bowie State to earn a BA in English. In my free time, I love to read, write, cook, STUDY, and dance.
I love working with people and helping them improve their self-esteem by improving their smiles. It’s a joy to watch their confidence grow, along with their personality, as they move through care. I spend my days with our patients, making sure they are comfortable and happy while here. I take X-rays, photographs, impressions, and intraoral scans for our doctors to review. I also answer questions from patients and parents about treatment and anything else.
I have a teenage daughter who loves fashion and a baby boy who loves to sing and enjoys bath time. We have a dog that’s a Shih Tzu and Pomeranian mix. I enjoy music and family time.
