Jillian

Practice Manager

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! Our practice is determined to not let finances stand in the way of getting the treatment you want.

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 of transforming smiles that happens here every day!

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.

 

Candace

Front Office and Scheduling Coordinator

Hi there! I'm a native to the DMV, growing up in Arlington and now raising my own 2 children with my husband in Springfield! In my spare time, you can find me on the soccer field sidelines cheering on my kids (6 days a week)! I also enjoy singing soprano in my church choir!  As the Scheduling Coordinator, I will be one of the first faces waiting to greet you upon your arrival at the office. My goal and main priority are to provide our patients with exceptional customer service, accommodating your needs, and busy schedules. With years of experience both behind the front desk and in the clinic, I'm ready to help solve any problem you may have.

 

Sara

Front Office and New Patient Coordinator

Greetings! I recently moved to DC and am enjoying getting to explore the city and all it has to offer! I spend most of my time traveling or driving home to Mississippi to spend time with my family. I'm excited to be working on my master's in business administration while supporting the wonderful patients at Orchin Orthodontics.

As the new patient coordinator, I welcome all new patients to our office and make you feel at home from your very first call with us. I'll work to make sure we have all the information we need to provide you with everything you need at your first complimentary consultation. I'll verify your insurance, make sure we have all the necessary health information and contact your dentist so we can share any necessary Xrays needed all before you even walk in the door for your first visit!

Nazee

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 at the weekend. I love sports and like to play tennis. I also do facials and makeup with friends.

 

 

Kendra

Orthodontic Assistant

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 grew up right outside of Boston and now live in Maryland with my husband, our 1-year-old son, and 2 dogs! The dogs and my son keep me pretty busy but I love finding time to hang out with friends and grab some local pizza!

 

Monica

Orthodontic Assistant

Hello! My name is Monica! A true Florida native who freezes when it’s below 60 degrees!  I have relocated to Rockville with my husband, two crazy kids, and three dogs!  I love going to the beach, watching movies, and cooking!

I am one of the highly skilled clinical assistants at Orchin Orthodontics. I have been assisting since 2005. I truly enjoy the connections I make with the patients and their families, especially in helping them understand and enjoy the orthodontic process!
