Orthodontic Assistant

Linda is a registered dental assistant that has been working in the field of orthodontics since she
graduated from Union High School in 1987. She loves working with patients, seeing beautiful
results and happy smiles. She has unbelievable patience with children that need that extra TLC. Linda is a devoted mother of a 16 year old daughter involved in Cheer and a 19 year old son who plays baseball in college. She has strong family values along with her husband of 24 years. Her favorite quote is: “Family — where life begins and lover never ends”. Everyone will
remember Linda, because she is the little one in the office with a charming smile.



Scheduling Coordinator

Jessica has been a part of the Chatham Orthodontics Smile Squad for eight years now. She
loves her work family. It is never a dull day with everyone making her happy to come to work.
Jessica is a jack of all trades, being able to help out wherever she is needed. She is currently working towards becoming a registered dental assistant and is very excited to continue her education. She enjoys going to courses in orthodontics and practice management, learning how that keep patient care running smoothly.

Treatment Coordinator

Patty is the office treatment coordinator. She has had the role of orthodontic assistant and
orthodontic treatment coordinator for over 30 years, which makes her the perfect patient liaison
for our office. She is a mother of four children: one son in college and three daughters who all dance and play travel volleyball. Patty was born in Poland and has a strong tie to her culture, especially during the holidays. She enjoys traveling to any destination with a rich history. For Patty, it is a big world with so many places and things to see and do!



Orthodontic Assistant

Melissa has a variety of dental experience working as an assistant since she was 19 years old.
She is extremely skilled at working with special needs patients because of her many years
working in pediatric dental practices prior to joining the team at Chatham Orthodontics. She truly enjoys the relationships she forms with her patients. Outside of work Melissa is a mother of a son and two daughters. Summer is her favorite
season because she loves going to the beach and Six Flags. She loves rollercoasters! She is also the proud owner of two cats, Cali and Cam, and a lover of all animals. If she could save all the animals, she would!
