I am a former patient and it is great to be back at Alba Orthodontics. Following my training as a dental assistant I decided to do orthodontic assisting and to join Dr. Alba's practice. My experience as a patient gives me the ability to see orthodontic treatment from the patients' view. Besides helping our patients to get healthy and beautiful smiles I also enjoy running and country music. I am a certified Specialized Orthodontic Assistant.

I recently joined Alba Orthodontics in January of 2014. I am a specialized Orthodontic Assistant and scan technician for Insignia Customized System and Invisalign. I love being a part of this team and getting the chance to meet wonderful people. I am pleased to be a part of a team that is on the cutting edge of orthodontic technology and each day is another opportunity to learn something new. I graduated from the Dental Assisting program at York Technical Institute. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family.

I have been with Dr. Alba's practice since 1998 working as an assistant and ordering our clinical supplies. I really enjoy working in the Orthodontic field because I had braces myself for four years and it is exciting to see the progress of our patients' smiles from visit to visit. Each patient's situation is unique and some can represent new challenges. My husband, Chris and I live in the Dillsburg area. We have three children and one grandson. I love spending time with my family and riding our Harleys. I am a certified Specialized Orthodontic Assistant.

I have worked for Dr. Alba for 16 years, meeting and greeting new patients and parents, giving tours of the office, and helping them understand their treatment options. I love creating relationships with our patients and their families. I enjoy working with patients on a one-to-one basis and introducing them to the process of orthodontics and providing them with information that will help make their experience fun and rewarding.

I live in Mechanicsburg with my two children, Heather and Taylor, and six cats. I love listening to rock and roll music and spending time with my family and friends.

I have recently joined Alba Orthodontics as the Scheduling Coordinator. With my previous experience in hospitality, I value making each visit a welcoming and memorable experience. It is extremely rewarding to see a beautiful transformed smile bring such great confidence that will last a life time! In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, friends, boyfriend and cat, Skye. I also enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, camping, travelling, crafting and volunteering with community service projects in my hometown of Duncannon.

I love orthodontics because I can help people and make a positive impact on their lives. I have worked in the lab making all our patients appliances since 2004, but I have been working in the orthodontic field for the past 25 years. There is truly no better profession than one that helps other people feel better about themselves, and I am proud to be a part of this team. Any time I can make someone smile it adds joy to my life!

I am originally from upstate New York and have lived in this area since 2004. I have three children, four grandchildren, and one cat. In my free time I enjoy hiking, camping, gardening, and playing golf.

I am Dr. Alba's administrative assistant and have worked here for 18 years. Over the years I have seen what a positive difference orthodontic treatment can have on a person's life. Seeing the beautiful smiles and seeing how thrilled the patients and parents are at the conclusion of treatment is always very rewarding.

I am originally from Maine and have lived in this area since 1973. I am married with one son and two beautiful granddaughters with whom I love to spend time.

I have worked in the orthodontic field for 24 years and joined Dr. Alba's office as a records technician in 2003. I enjoy working with kids of all ages and watching their self-esteem soar when their smiles are improved. I hope to make every patient's visit to our office as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

I have two grown daughters, two dogs, and a grandson who is my favorite guy around! When I have free time I enjoy traveling, reading, cooking, and spending time with my family and friends.

I have been with Dr. Alba for 20 years as an orthodontic assistant and marketing coordinator. I enjoy working with patients, assisting with treatments and creating fun and exciting contests for patients to participate in at each visit. It is great getting to know our patients and seeing how their smiles transform. Watching them progress through treatment and accomplish their goals makes each day at work rewarding. My husband, Troy and I, have four children and our golden retriever, Tucker. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, shopping, being active in our church and watching Penn State football. I am a certified Specialized Orthodontic Assistant.
