Practice and Treatment Coordinator

When patients first come to our office, they speak with me to discuss their care plans and find the treatment package that meets their needs. I really enjoy explaining all the wonderful things Dr. Thabet can do for them with the expertise and modern technology available at this practice. I am happy to go above and beyond to inform and comfort patients, especially when I get to see the joy and confidence that result from great orthodontic care.

I am a very active person, hiking and biking in this beautiful region whenever I get the chance. I share my life with my husband, our two children, and a pair of curious kitties.

Fun Facts:

If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?  Abraham Lincoln, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Albert Einstein

What do you miss most about being a kid?  Laying on the ground, looking at the clouds and trying to figure out what they look like

Scheduling Coordinator

I joined Thabet Orthodontics in the summer of 2013. I am the lucky person who greets patients when they come to our office. If you need to find that perfect time for an appointment, I am the person to contact. I also help with insurance verification, as well as many other little jobs that need doing in the office. My favorite part about working here is seeing the smiles on patients' faces as soon as they walk through the door, and getting to know them on a personal level. The team here is great, too! Everyone is fun, energetic, and caring.

I am originally from Cameroon but joined my family here 11 years ago. When I'm not working or studying, I'm most likely on my couch with food and watching the latest Nigerian movies.

I love meeting all the families that come to our practice and seeing our patients enjoying their new smiles for the first time.

I have worked in the field of orthodontics since 2005 and joined Dr. Thabet's team in September of 2013. I love getting to know our patients and helping them achieve a beautiful smile. My favorite part of coming to work is listening to Dr. Thabet sing to his patients.... even though he's a bit off key!

Biggest fear: That all the spiders I vacuumed up will climb out and come get me... all at once!
