Our Staff

Simply put, our team is the best group of experienced professionals you’ll find anywhere. Each staff member has an uncanny understanding of not just what goes into a great smile, but what comes from it.  They each have their own reason for being passionate about orthodontics–make sure to ask and you’ll hear some great stories! Talk to them about your treatment process, the latest news around Woodbury, or even your drive to the office. They’re great listeners and love learning what makes you, you! And be warned, their unbridled happiness is highly contagious. Their main goal is to make sure you are comfortable and confident after completing each of your visits. Dr. Horton is so lucky to have them all by her side, and you will for sure see why the first time you meet them!
