Nicole- (Orthodontic Assistant) Hi! I'm Nicole andFamily Orthodontic Care is a caring, professional and positive environment for not only its staff, but most importantly its patients. We strive to reach each patient's individual needs, and we do nothing less than that. I can speak from both sides, because before working here, I was a patient. I loved coming to visits and the staff knowing me personally -- such as asking questions about school, sports, and family. I later started as the office's sterilization technician, and overtime by working here helped me decide what I would like to study in college. I am currently an orthodontic assistant here at Family Orthodontic Care and a sophomore studying dental hygiene at Three Rivers Community College. In my spare time, I enjoy going to country concerts, teaching dance part-time, and I love spending time with my family. I am excited about expanding my horizons in the dental field and look forward to the rest of my journey through school.
