The most important passion in my life is helping others. I feel so blessed to be a part of a team who cares deeply about making a difference in the lives of our patients. Not just with their smile, but with their confidence and self-esteem. We are one big family here and that's the best part of my job! I work hard to make sure that our practice always provides top-quality care and customer service. As Treatment Coordinator, I love introducing new patients to our practice and answering their questions about procedures and appointments, as well as explaining financial arrangements and insurance benefits. I was raised in North Long Beach and it will always be my hometown. I have a lot of hobbies, like reading, writing, roller skating, and face painting, but most of all I love spending time with my husband of 23 years and our two sons.
I have worked for Dr. Brodsky since 1995, my senior year of high school. Over the last 20 years, my job responsibilities have grown considerably. I love my job as Patient Services Supervisor because I get to interact one-on-one with our patients. I am devoted to helping patients with their orthodontic needs and look forward to helping you as well! I was born in Lakewood and have lived in the city my entire life. I love spending time with my family and my husband, Loryn. Outside of the office, my passions include traveling and scrapbooking. My absolute favorite activity is watching NASCAR racing and cheering on Jeff Gordon!
Making a difference in peoples' smiles is what I thoroughly enjoy! For the last 17 years at Brodsky Orthodontics I have also enjoyed and taken great pride in getting the most accurate insurance information possible for our patients. Additionally, I love working with such a great team, where we are not just a staff that works with each other day in and day out, but a big family that gets along and supports each other. My husband of 25 years, Anthony, and I have both a son and a daughter whom we are very proud of. In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, going to the movies, and wine tasting with friends.
There are so many things I love about working at Brodsky Orthodontics. For one, we truly care about our patients and the teamwork here is unbelievable (there is no “I” in “Team” here). I have worked in the orthodontic field for over 27 years, more than seven here at Brodsky Orthodontics, and I am glad to be working in an office where our patients are as happy to see us as we are to see them. I am the proud mother of two handsome sons. My eldest child is serving our country overseas in the military and my youngest is a student at CSULB. Life is good!
Working at Dr. Brodsky's office has allowed me to grow as a person both personally and professionally. The entire staff treats me with great respect and because of this, I give 110% everyday. My job is to file insurance claims on behalf of all of our patients and I take my job quite seriously to maximize your insurance benefits. I have worked in the dental field for 16 years, which gives me the experience to do my job effectively. At home, I am very busy as well, raising four children between the ages of 1 and 20. My husband Arturo and I both love the outdoors and we love hiking and camping together.
I started with Dr. Brodsky in the summer of 1997 as an intern! After working here for over 12 years, my absolute favorite part of this job is still watching the joy on my patients’ faces when they see their smiles for the first time after getting their braces off. I grew up in Mexico City until I was 12, when I came to the U.S. to continue my education. I have two daughters, Gwendolyn and Genevieve, and we love going to the movies together. I also like to craft, especially decorating costumes. Fun fact, we used to have a pony named Comet who once made a special appearance at Dr. Brodsky’s summer party!
I’ve been with Dr. Brodsky for nearly 17 years, and I hope to be here for 17 more! The doctors have given me the opportunity to do what I love every day, and I’m so grateful to them. My favorite moments of my job are when Dr. Brodsky gives me new challenges to meet and conquer. Even though I attended Cal Baptist and studied Child Psychology, my calling for orthodontia started back when I had braces and the assistant explained how she’d gotten into this career. Outside of work, I love watching Disney cartoons, learning about history, and just being creative (whether it’s knitting, working with leather, or creating jewelry).
Working in the field of orthodontics is absolutely awesome! After more than nine years on the job, I still get excited when I help remove braces from a patient who has just completed treatment and they look in the mirror for the very first time. I get joy knowing that I participated in creating their new smile and the self-confidence their smile brings to them. After work ends, all of my attention turns to my little princess, Ahlyanna. She is the joy of my life and I love being her mother!
I love working at Brodsky Orthodontics because of the fun and professional working environment and the friendly and caring staff. I have worked in the orthodontic field for 27 years. I was originally born in Ecuador and came to the United States in 1970 as an exchange student because I wanted to improve my English skills. While I was here, I fell in love and decided to make New England my home. I worked in scenic Massachusetts for many years before moving out west to California. I made the big move a few years ago to be closer to my daughter and to watch my two grandchildren, Nolan and Ava, grow. When I am not babysitting my grandchildren, I love watching and cheering for the Patriots and the Celtics, except of course when they play the Lakers.
I have been in charge of sterilization for over twelve years. In addition, I help make some of the appliances in the dental lab. I enjoy my job very much because of the relaxed but professional atmosphere and the wonderful staff members. I live at home with my sister, Laura, who is an orthodontic assistant, her husband, and my nieces. I lead a very active life after the work day ends. I love to hang out with friends, watch movies at the theater, and I love to cook. I also love to travel all over the world with my cousins.
I feel blessed to be part of this amazing team! I have worked as an assistant in the orthodontic field for over eight years. My career started in Northern California, where I grew up. Then I got engaged to my wonderful husband, Charles, and moved southward to live with him. I am so happy to go to work each day and help our patients achieve their new smiles. After work, I enjoy playing the clarinet and I am a member of the Artesia Marching Band. I have a new baby at home as well as two miniature Chihuahuas named Tibbles and Star. I love them all to death!
