Chair Side Technician

Welcome to our practice, Thacker Orthodontics is a wonderful place to be not only as an employee, but also as a Patient. I have worked in Orthodontics since 1999, and started with Dr. Thacker in 2003. Dr. Thacker is a very dedicated Orthodontist and Boss to work with everyday. My main job in the office is Chairside Assistant, but I also am able to switch hats and do a variety of different jobs around the office. Some of those jobs include Lab work, Front Desk and Marketing help when needed. I love watching our patients grow up and helping to create their amazing smiles that will last them a lifetime. I am also a Certified Radiographer as well as CPR Certified. We also have a Digital Scanner for taking Impressions and I work with one other person in taking all the initial scans for Dr. Thacker to use to diagnose treatment plans for our patients. Currently we are the only Orthodontic Office in the area with such awesome technology!

I enjoy spending time with my family and watching my Son play all of his many sports activities. Hope to meet you soon!!
