Marlene

TREATMENT COORDINATING SPECIALIST AND SUPERVISOR 


With more than 20 years of orthodontic experience, nothing makes me happier than witnessing patient’s feel excited about their beautiful teeth and how their confidence grow as they get the perfect smile. I joined M.O. as a Certified Orthodontic Assistant and today I have expanded my knowledge and responsibilities both clinical and administratively to become the clinical supervisor/treatment coordinating specialist. My husband and I have a gorgeous daughter whom we love very much. My favorite quote: Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass it’s learning to dance in the rain.

Jessica

LAB SPECIALIST


The best part of orthodontics for me is being able to see our patients smile improve every appointment and celebrate with them when they finished treatment and show their beautiful smiles. I enjoy working with Dr. Nelson as the Lab Specialist. I 3D print models and make aligners/retainers using our digital scanner and 3D printer. I also add all of our new patient’s names and draw the artwork for our welcome chalkboard wall. I love to spend time with my fiancée and 2 children. I also love music and art.

Brittany

CLINICAL SPECIALIST


I come from a large and close-knit Filipino family and am the youngest of 3 siblings. My family helped shape the person I am today, and I am thankful for their never-ending support and love. I enjoy working in the orthodontic field and being part of a great team. Being able to assist and help our patients and witness how happy they become from their smile transformation is truly a rewarding experience. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family by going to the theater, as well as baking and playing the flute.
