Treatment and Financial Coordinator
I love welcoming new patients and families to our practice. It’s wonderful to be part of giving each person a beautiful smile — one that makes them feel good about themselves. I’ve worked in the field since 1971 and joined Dr. Debra Fink and the team in 2005. I am lucky because I get to meet new patients and introduce them to orthodontics, and then watch them gain self-esteem with a new smile! I review their finances and insurance, answer questions, and get them off to a great start.
Away from work, I love to power walk and hike whenever I can. I also love to cook and bake, especially with and for my four lovely grandchildren!
I am responsible for making sure the office runs smoothly and that our patients and their families have a positive experience while they are with us. I started my career in 1994 as a certified dental assistant and quickly progressed to lead assistant with cross training in all areas of the dental office. I joined Dr. Fink in 2015. It has been a joy to come to work each day with a group that has such a positive outlook and strong work ethic. Dr. Fink is a phenomenal orthodontist and a perfectionist who never stops working until a smile is just right.
I am married to my high-school sweetheart Charles, who is the love of my life. I have two children: a son Justin and daughter Brooke who are everything I could hope they would be and more. My daughter is a mother to my beautiful grandson Mason. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, going to the movies, and spending time with my friends and family.
Clinical Coordinator and Certified Orthodontic Assistant
We have the best patients imaginable! It’s so much fun to see them start to feel better about themselves and become happier as they see their smile change. The day we remove their braces and they look in the mirror is amazing: They’re laughing and grinning and we’re thrilled for them! I started working in the dental field in 1982 and joined our team in 1997. I make sure our clinic runs on time. I also deliver retainers, order supplies, and remove braces.
My time away from the practice is usually spent with family and friends. I love visiting with my grandchildren and enjoy going to the gym.
Certified Orthodontic Assistant
It’s amazing to watch a person change during orthodontic treatment. People often start feeling self-conscious about their teeth. During treatment, they start to feel better about their appearance and by the end their smiles don’t stop! I love being part of making those smiles happen. I’ve been a certified orthodontic assistant since 2000 and joined Dr. Fink in 2012. Working with the doctor, I help give patients their best smiles possible!
My favorite pastimes when I’m not working are gardening, four-wheeling, and music.
I enjoy the friendships that grow with patients and families. During treatment, because we see each other regularly, I learn about their lives and interests. Hearing about a person’s latest adventures, their success at work or school, and sharing in their excitement at getting a new smile, are all wonderful. I joined the team in 2012 after working in the dental field since in 1996. It’s a joy to be part of a great team and helping to create perfect smiles!
My awesome husband Kelly and I have been married for more than 20 years. I have two adult sons, Andrew and Adam, and three grandchildren: Alice, Aiven, and Mason. I love being outdoors and time spent at the beach.
Certified Orthodontic Assistant
Our patients make me love coming to work! I look forward to hearing about their day, sharing stories, and celebrating their achievements. It’s incredibly rewarding to help people I care about achieve a lifetime of smiles they love sharing. I’m currently a certified orthodontic assistant, and in 2014 I became part of this smile family. My days are spent helping patients during visits, working chairside, and offering education and encouragement.
My life is centered on my young daughter, Charlotte. She is the center of my universe and keeps me hoping. I’m also currently in school, studying to become a registered dental hygienist.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I love teeth! And anything to do with them (smiling, eating, talking — you name it)! As an RDH, I get to work one on one with you or your children to discover how best to care for your oral health for optimal orthodontic success. I love my job, the great ladies I work with, and all of our patients. I get to learn our patients’ stories, interests, and hobbies while focusing with them on knowledge of their own gum health. Together we work to achieve a personal best standard of optimal gum health during their care with Dr. Fink.
My husband’s job as an orthopedic surgeon brought our family (complete with two girls and two Guinea pigs) to St. Louis. We can’t get enough of the St. Louis storms and delicious eats! When we’re not here, you’ll find us vacationing across the U.S., with multiple trips to visit family in Utah and Texas. Cheers to fantastic adventures with friends and family any time of the year!
Receptionist and Marketing Coordinator
I enjoy becoming friends with patients and parents. Watching people I care about develop great oral health and a smile they love keeps me loving my work. The day they finish, and see their beautiful new smile, is the best! I started working as a dental assistant in 2015 and joined our team the same year. I handle our practice advertising and help out at the front desk, too: answering the phones and scheduling visits.
When I’m not working, I love pretty much anything that gets me outdoors, especially camping and riding four wheelers and dirt bikes. I also love time with my boyfriend Dustin, and spoiling my nephews, Christopher and Jackson.
