We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
Office Manager / Financial Coordinator
I am responsible for running the front office, managing our patient accounts, and handling insurance coordination. While my duties are many, they are worth seeing our patients’ final results and their big, mega-watt smiles! I love my team and our doctors! We all work hard and get along well. On top of everything, our doctors still make time for family and their continued dedication to keep up to date with the latest technology and improvements in orthodontics.
I’m a single mom of a wonderful nine-year-old son. I’m very lucky and thankful to have my large family close by, and see them often for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, baby showers, weddings, and funerals. You name it — we are doing it and doing it all together! I enjoy volunteering at my son’s school, watching his sports activities, watching movies, going out to dinner, going to the beach, or just staying home with him and cooking together.
It’s certainly true that time flies when you’re having fun! Each day here goes by so fast, and I really appreciate getting to see so many smiles leave our office. I love to work in this office because everyone is fun to work with. Although we have different personalities, we all manage to get along and build a fun environment. The doctors are very friendly as well; they are always willing to teach us and answer all of our questions.
I recently obtained my RDA license last year and it really felt like a great accomplishment to me. In my free time, I spend time with my dog that I love very much. I love playing and cuddling with her!
Patient Care Coordinator / Lab Assistant
My favorite part of my job is the opportunity to learn new and different things. Since I work with patient care and in the lab, my days are full of new chances to expand my knowledge. I also really love working with the doctors and the rest of the team here because everyone is very willing to teach one another. We are a very hard-working office and team, but that doesn’t stop us from laughing and smiling at work!
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in business administration-marketing from California State University, Long Beach. In my free time, I enjoy outdoor activities, exercising, hiking, swimming, and hanging out with loved ones.
Although I have many responsibilities at the front desk, I get the most satisfaction interacting with our patients, who vary greatly in ages and backgrounds, as they enter and leave the office. I enjoy meeting and talking to people and try hard to impress on our patients the friendly, professional feeling of our office. I find it very rewarding working in a well-organized, professionally run office that is dedicated to providing excellent care for our patients. Dr. Fell and Dr. Borenstein set the tone in the office with their well-respected abilities in orthodontics, their hard work, and their care for our patients.
Within the past year, I have returned to the South Bay area where I grew up after living in Santa Barbara for four years. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts at UCSB and working there for a year. I love being back among my family and old friends. In my spare time I enjoy playing sports, including golf and soccer, and watching my favorite sports teams, the Dodgers and Lakers.
Orthodontic Clinic Supervisor
I enjoy being around people, especially when I know I am able to help them in a way that will positively affect their lives forever. Receiving orthodontic care is a great way to improve the way you look and feel, and I am excited about being a part of our patients’ transformations. I love the support that the doctors give the staff to learn and grow in the orthodontic field. The team at this office is amazing; everyone works really hard to make our patients smile!
In my free time, I love helping out at my church and spending time with my husband and son.
I work hard to make each patient’s office visit a positive experience. I enjoy working here and being able to interact with so many different people every day. I love the team and doctors with whom I work, as well. We all work very well with each other; everyone is willing to learn new things and teach each other.
Outside the office, I love trying new foods and spending time with my family and loved ones.
