Our Orthodontic Assistants

Our orthodontic assistants are highly qualified and assist Dr. Palaisa with all aspects of patients care. They are dedicated to creating a comfortable, enjoyable visit for all our patients and their families.



Nothing makes me more happy then seeing someone smile and knowing I have been a part of that, is a wonderful feeling. I am blessed to have such a great opportunity to change peoples appearances. Having gone through treatment myself, I can relate on a personal level. I love working with children and getting to know them and watch them grow. I truly enjoy working with such an amazing group of ladies, who are like family.

Outside of work, I enjoy hanging out with my husband and two children, Karlee and Evan. I love doing photography and anything outside.     



My favorite thing is to see the positive changes that orthodontics can bring to the lives of others. I am so proud to be apart of that process, and part of this outstanding team. 

 When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and my two daughters Ella and Evelyn, family and friends. I love to be outdoors, go to sporting events, and watch football.
