Veronica
Treatment Coordinator

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.

Deanna
Patient Services Supervisor

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!

Jan
Insurance Coordinator

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.

Kris
Financial Coordinator

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!

Patty
Insurance Coordinator

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.

Jessica
Scheduling Coordinator
I started working with Brodsky Orthodontics in 2016. My favorite part of this job is working with people. I have the privilege of speaking with all our new patients when they schedule their first appointments to begin treatment. I work hard to accommodate everyone's busy schedule. Life can be very demanding between business meetings, after school activities and homework. I work closely with you to find appointments that work for your schedule. I grew up in Paramount, California and attended Long Beach State University. My kids are my hobbies! I'm on the go all the time usually to soccer games.

Roxy
Patient Services
My goal each day is to give people the best possible customer service. My job is to work closely with patients to help with whatever they may need. I take pride in greeting each patient with a smile and a "can do" attitude. I have been working for Brodsky Orthodontics since 2016 and look forward to many more years here. I have a lot of family in Mexico and I enjoy visiting them on a regular basis. In my spare time I love to spend time with my kids and cook for my family.

Laura
Orthodontic Assistant (RDA)

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!

Donna
Orthodontic Assistant (RDA) and Laboratory Services

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).

Isabel
Orthodontic Assistant (RDA)

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!

Isabel

Francis
Orthodontic Assistant (RDA)

Coming to work at Brodsky Orthodontics each day is an absolute blast. I love my team members and I love talking with our patients. I have been in the dental field for more than 13 years and am so happy that I switched to the specialty of orthodontics. I love watching all of our patients' smiles transform right before our eyes. At home I have two smiling boys of my own. My eldest son, Salvador, is a sports fanatic, and Mario loves to spend his free time reading. In my spare time I love to hike and spend time with my family.

Janina
Orthodontic Assistant

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.

Alicia
Sterilization Coordinator and Laboratory Services

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.

Marlene
Orthodontic Assistant

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!

Miranda
Orthodontic Assistant (RDA)
I’m a local girl, who grew up right here in Lakewood. I’ve been working with Dr. Brodsky since 2012, after I graduated from Four-D College here in California. I love being a part of such an amazing office. We really do have an awesome team! I’d say my favorite part of being an RDA is seeing a patient’s first reaction to the removal of their braces. It is really priceless! Music and playing guitar are also a big part of my life.

Maria
Orthodontic Assistant (RDA)
I attended University of the East in Manila, Phillipines before I joined Brodsky Orthodontics in November of 2014, and I’m so very happy here! The doctors and staff are nice and knowledgeable. I’ve loved dentistry since I was young, and now that I work in the field I get to see how very happy my patients are when their braces are removed, and know that I participated in that process. It is an AWESOME feeling! My family is very musically inclined, which is probably why I love music, dancing, and singing so much. My husband and I love exploring, travelling, and playing jokes on our family and friends.

Maria

Liezl
Orthodontic Assistant (RDA)
My love for travelling and this job probably began back in the Philippines, where I grew up and eventually studied Dentistry at Manila Central University. I joined Dr. Brodsky’s office in June of 2015 and I’m very happy to be a member of this team. My favorite part of my job is when my patients are happy with the results of a long treatment. It feels great when they appreciate our hard work! When I’m not here, I’m usually cooking or spending time with my kids and my husband, my two favorite hobbies.

Rosie
Orthodontic Assistant (RDA)
I'm ecstatic to a part of the Brodsky Orthodontics team! I love it here. Everyone is so friendly and always quick to help each other. I love learning and Dr. Brodsky is big on continuing education so we're always up to date on new procedures and technology. I became really interested in orthodontics from an early age and I love interacting with people so this is a dream come true. On the weekends I love reading, watching new movies and hiking. Random fact: I used to work at McDonalds.
