Marty – Office Manager & Insurance Coordinator
Marty is one of WEO’s finest assets. She is the office manager and our insurance coordinator. She is also an orthodontic assistant! Her sparkling personality and warm smile are always remembered as people often ask for her by name years after treatment. Come visit and Marty will be there.
Tadiana – Senior Clinical Assistant & Lab Coordinator Tadiana came to West End Orthodontics from Colombia, South America. She was originally trained as a dentist in Columbia. She has more than 10 years of experience working as an orthodontic assistant at WEO. We are proud to have another, perhaps over-qualified, orthodontic assistant. In her spare time, Tadiana likes to spend time with her son Gabriel and her husband David.
Lisa – Scheduling & Billing Coordinator Lisa seems to be well-known throughout the West End! She is coming back to work after raising two boys and we are delighted that she chose to come to work for us. Lisa shares time with Nanette at the front desk so you’re sure to get to know her throughout treatment. Ask about her Pennsylvania roots and it‘s likely that you’ll come up with a mutual friend soon enough.
Nanette – Scheduling Coordinator It’s always nice to have a reliably friendly voice on the other end of the phone or across the counter, and Nanette never disappoints. Nanette has had several years of experience in dental and medical practices throughout Virginia. She is always courteous and truly enjoys her time here at WEO. We are lucky to have her help, even if it’s only part-time, and look forward to each day she’s with us.
Megan – Clinical Assistant & Office Systems Manager
Megan came to us straight from her training program in dental assisting. Megan brings with her a hospitable smile and a nurturing disposition that makes her a perfect fit for the WEO team. Outside of work, Megan enjoys country music, cooking vegetables, hunting, fishing and taking care of the farm. She and her husband care for 18 dogs, 2 pigs, 6 chickens, 1 turkey and a partridge in a pear tree.
Laura – Clinical Assistant & Public Relations
Laura is the most recent addition the WEO staff, and we’re so happy that she’s with us. She brings with her a passion for patient care, excellent communication skills and an obsession for cleanliness that even Dr. Iuorno envies. Laura is also spearheading our social media presence and website development! She’s a master at boomerangs on Instagram. She and her husband enjoy time together outdoors and with their beagles and labs!
