Meet the Team


Treatment Coordinator 

I had braces as an adult, so I know first hand how much orthodontic treatment can improve your dental health and self-confidence.  I feel privileged to help our patients share in that same, positive experience!  At Slack Orthodontics, my focus is on making your time with us as pleasant as possible.  From your first visit to the day your braces come off, I am here to assist you with scheduling, making financial arrangements that work for you and your budget, and assisting Dr. Slack with your care.

In my personal life, I enjoy finding new adventures and trying new foods.  Right now I’m working on achieving my goal of seeing all 50 states!  My husband and I love boating and fishing, and I’m also learning how to golf.  People tend to ask me about my unique name: it’s pronounced “den-YAY!”


Patient Experience Specialist (Clinical) 

I completed my Expanded Functions Dental Assistant training at the Charlotte Technical Center in Port Charlotte, FL.  As an orthodontic asssistant, I love seeing how having a happy, healthy, beautiful smile can change a  person’s life and self-esteem.  Being part of that transformation is very rewarding and I really enjoy being a part of such a hard-working team.  At Slack Orthodontics my desire is to make your experience as positive and comfortable as possible!

On a personal note, I enjoy spending time with my husband & our two beautiful children, Kylie & Landyn.  We love spending our time four-wheeling, fishing & boating.


Patient Experience Specialist (Administrative) 

I worked as a receptionist in a general dentistry practice for twelve years before becoming a patient experience specialist at Slack Orthodontics.  With my position, I like to make sure each person is treated with individualized respect.  I love to see the happiness that a beautiful smile can bring to a person, and I am eager to make each of your visits enjoyable!

Outside of the office my husband and I like fishing, boating, and kayaking with our two children, Eric and Shannon.  I also enjoy running, reading, and working out.
