We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.
We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I have been working in the orthodontic field for over 10 years. My favorite part of my job is watching patients transform and seeing their smiles after they finish treatment. I enjoy educating patients on the importance of dental hygiene and appliance care. I love the team I work with and every day is a new adventure.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, traveling, attending death metal concerts and spending time with my son and daughter. If you ask me to share my M&M's I cant promise you I will, but if I do, I will certainly be handing you a toothbrush and asking you to go brush!
I manage the everyday operations of the practice working closely with the doctors and staff to make sure all jobs are performed effectively and making sure our patients are getting the best care possible. Over the years, I have worked in every aspect of the orthodontic office starting with assisting and then lab work. Always wanting to do and learn more, I became involved in the front-end operation of the practice where I handled scheduling, billing, and insurance. This allowed me to transition into my current roll as office manager where I can take all that I have learned and give our patients the best treatment possible. I love the relationships we form with our patients and being able to watch their smiles transition. There is nothing like the smile you will see the day their braces are removed or their Invisalign® treatment is completed!
My husband Todd and I have two grown children, Nick and Laura. Both have had orthodontic treatment and should have worn their retainers more! I am an avid Red Sox fan, I have tried just about every recipe on Pinterest, and I enjoy hiking the trails of New England with my family.
New Patient Coordinator
I started my journey in dentistry in 1984 in general and pediatric dentistry. As our new patient coordinator, I will be one of the first people you meet when you come to the office. I will take your orthodontic records so the doctors can plan the best treatment for you. I love making patients feel comfortable and seeing them smile with excitement to start treatment. Their smiles at the end of treatment are even better!
My newest joy in life is being a Gramma to the two most adorable grandchildren. I also have a sweet fiancé, three wonderful grown children, and two sons-in-law—what more could I ask for! When the weather is nice, I love to golf!
My job as an orthodontic assistant not only involves chairside duties, but also lab work and ordering of supplies and sometimes scheduling appointments. One of my favorite parts of my job is getting to know the patients and parents and interacting with them. Getting to see the results at the end is so cool! Our team is also just the best! We all enjoy hanging out during and after work. It’s a lot of fun here!
I am a wife and mom to three beautiful girls, as well as “Mimi” to three sweet babies. When I am not with my family, you can find me either fishing or taking photos.
Lead Orthodontic Assistant
My work at Dixon Orthodontics includes chair-side assisting, as well as making sure the floor runs smoothly throughout the day. The best part of my job is being surrounded by amazing coworkers who make work fun! Of course, I also love playing a helping hand in creating beautiful smiles for our patients!
I live in Farmington with my husband David and our three children Justin, Ashley, and Nathan. We have a dog named Lynx and a cat named Puma. Out of the office, I work as an EMT and enjoy spending quality time with my family
One of the best aspects of my job here is that I get to greet our patients with a smile the moment they enter our office. I love setting a great first impression of their time here! I also coordinate the doctors’ schedules and handle the finances and insurance. Everyone I work with is like family. We all work so well together to ensure the office runs smoothly and patients’ needs are being taken care of.
When I am not working, my husband and I are out and about with friends or family singing karaoke or spending quality time together. In the winter, when we aren't travelling for or coaching club volleyball, we are on the slopes, skiing!
Orthodontic Assistant and Sterilization Coordinator
I attended Springfield Technical Community College where I received my certificate in dental assisting. I went on to work in the pediatric dental field until 2012 and then transitioned to orthodontics. Here at Dixon Orthodontics, I work closely with the doctor and patients to provide the best care possible. As the sterilization coordinator. I make sure all standards are kept or exceeded in our office. My goal is to make all patients comfortable while going through the orthodontic process.
When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my beautiful daughter and our dog named Belle.
I help manage our patients’ care by monitoring and coordinating their treatment plan, connecting them with other providers, educating them on their progress, scheduling appointments, and dealing with insurance and financials. I enjoy being able to give a great orthodontic experience for our patients and working with my coworkers. Working here doesn't seem like work whatsoever. Everyone makes you feel welcomed, we help each other out, it's a pleasant environment, and we all consider one another a big family.
My wonderful fiancé and our two-year-old son keep me busy outside the office. I attended a technical high school where I studied fashion merchandising and entrepreneurship where we designed clothing. I even won first place for our eco-friendly fashion competition for my dress that I made entirely out of sparkly glitter foam paper!
Treatment Coordinator and Orthodontic Assistant
As the treatment coordinator, I work closely with our patients to help them understand their treatment plan. I love interacting with the patients and educating them on the importance of orthodontic treatment. Everyone here is ready and eager to help whenever necessary to ensure an outstanding experience for our patients.
In my free time, I love being with my family, as well as hiking, cooking, and reading. I especially adore my two little pups, Maximus Decimus Meridius Barry and Isabella Konstantinidis. I love to travel and enjoy whatever life has to offer.
Treatment Coordinator and Orthodontic Assistant
I do a little bit of everything from treatment coordinator to scheduling appointments, helping with finances, and assisting. You will see me through the entire process of your orthodontic treatment! It’s rewarding to see the transformation of our patients from start to finish, and the difference in confidence as they go through treatment. Along with our doctors and the rest of our team, I am dedicated to meeting each patient’s individual needs and having fun in the process!
Away from the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband Anthony, our son Luca, and daughter Toni. I enjoy jogging, hockey, and biking, but most of all being my kids’ biggest fan!
