EmBRACING Beautiful,Healthy Smiles for a Lifetime

Meet the Staff


Orthodontic Assistant

In addition to assisting Dr. Durfee with treating patients, I also take X-rays, make temporary retainers and models for records, and make Invisalign® cases.  I have been in the orthodontic field since 2000 and love seeing our patients’ smiles after treatment. When they show their new straight teeth, it’s so gratifying to know that I helped create that smile. Dr. Durfee has created a wonderful environment for patients and staff alike. She is very professional but also really easy to get along with. Outside the office I like reading books, listening to music, and walking with my Cocker Spaniel. I also enjoy gardening and cooking.


Financial Coordinator

I joined Dr. Durfee’s team in January 2013, and can be found at our front desk where I schedule appointments and assist patients with all their insurance billing needs. My favorite part of my job is helping patients utilize their dental benefits and finding the best financial option for everyone. I also enjoy working with Dr. Durfee because she is a truly caring doctor and is dedicated to each and every patient. I live in Chicago with my boyfriend of six years and our adorable cat, Noodle. When I am not at work I am usually relaxing with my boyfriend and cat or traveling with family. I am currently trying to learn to cross stitch!


Office Assistant                   

I joined Dr. Durfee’s team in 2013 and coordinate scheduling and billing. I am in charge of ordering all our orthodontic supplies and help patients and parents with any questions they may have. I love the friendly and welcoming atmosphere at Dr. Durfee’s office but most of all I enjoy interacting with our patients and seeing them smile! I am happily married and have a large family. Between family and friends I like to travel, cook and read.
