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 watching them grow. I truely 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.


The thing I enjoy most is when patients first start to notice changes in their smiles and are happy with the results they achieve. I love the team that I work with as well. Some of us have been friends for many years, so it’s more like working with family.

When I am not at work, I love spending time with my husband and two daughters, Adelynn and Arisynn and our dog Nova. I also love reading and hiking. 


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

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


Helping to make beautiful smiles makes my day, every day! I love working with my teammates to make sure that our patients have a wonderful, fun experience in our office.

I am originally from Pennsylvania but relocated to Frostburg when I met my husband Daniel. We have a son, Liam. I enjoy spending my free time with my family and crafting.


What I love most is being able to witness the happiness from patients as the notice their progress. I love seeing their beautiful smiles. I also love being part of such a great team that treat you like family.

When I'm not at work I enjoy spending time with my son Ilyas. I love being outdoors, nature and animals. I also enjoy anything to do with makeup.


The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the end result. I love seeing the patients reaction when they finally love their smile, it's very rewarding. I was Dr. Palaisa's patient before I started working in the office. I was very fascinated by how orthodontics works and proceeded to study and start my career working with a bunch of wonderful people.

When I'm not at work I enjoy hanging out with my boyfriend and my dogs Lilly and Diesel.
