Meet the Team


We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Welcome!!  I am one of the orthodontic assistants who help Dr. Detterline during the treatment process. I’ve been working in the orthodontic field since 2012. I am qualified in expanded functions and certified in radiology. I love the high energy and camaraderie with everyone who works here.

My family is the basis of my life. I have 3 beautiful children who keep me very busy.


I am the treatment coordinator at Detterline Orthodontics. I have worked in the orthodontic field since 1997 and really enjoy making our patients feel comfortable in our office. My primary responsibilities include coordinating each patient’s orthodontic treatment, from getting started to arranging financial agreements and corresponding with their general dentist to keep everyone in the loop before, during, and after treatment.

I am a native of Maryland and attended Walkersville High School. I now live in Baltimore City on the harbor and really enjoy the city life! In my spare time I enjoy traveling and playing tennis. I look forward to meeting you!


Hi! I am one of the orthodontic assistants that help Dr. Detterline. I have been assisting in Dentistry since 2011. I am certified in Radiology, expanded functions for General Dentistry and Orthodontics. Though the field of dentistry is so diverse, I love orthodontics the most. I enjoy working with children and getting to know them. 

When I am not in the office, I enjoy hanging out with friends and family, hiking, horseback riding, reading and traveling


Hi! I am a front desk receptionist for Detterline Orthodontics. I greet patients, answer phones, schedule appointments, and verify insurance. I have worked for a general dentist and prosthodontist, but orthodontics is by far my favorite. I love the positive and fun environment of watching smiles transition!

I grew up in Annapolis and went to Penn State, so in my free time I love to go to State College and cheer on the Nittany Lions! I recently got engaged and enjoy spending time with my fiancé kayaking, fishing, hiking and going to concerts.


I am the clinical coordinator for Detterline Orthodontics. I work as an orthodontic technician: I oversee the clinical assistants in the treatment bay and try to keep Dr. Detterline on schedule. I have been working in orthodontics since 1983 and have been a part of this orthodontic team since 1997. I love meeting new people, making new friends, and putting beautiful smiles out in the world every day! I also enjoy working with a team that is professional and passionate about orthodontics, and who also enjoy having fun!

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my grown daughter Kaitlin, and a little puppy named Kipper. I enjoy bonfires with friends, playing horseshoes, kayaking, and spending time with my family.


Welcome! As one of the front desk receptionists, my responsibilities include greeting patients, scheduling appointments, answering the phone, and assisting however I can. I enjoy meeting all of our patients and seeing their smiles transform throughout their treatment. We have an awesome team here at Detterline Orthodontics and it’s great to work with such fun and talented people!

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family which includes my husband, our 6 year old, two cats, and a chocolate lab. When they’re not keeping me busy, I like reading a good mystery book, playing word games, and catching up with friends.


I am one of the orthodontic technicians who help Dr. Detterline provide exemplary orthodontic treatment for our patients. I am qualified in orthodontic expanded functions and am certified in radiology. In addition to my responsibilities as a clinical assistant, I am also in charge of ordering the many different orthodontic supplies and maintaining the inventory schedule. Over the past 28 years here, I’ve loved getting to know our patients and watching their beautiful smiles evolve. It’s great to make such a positive difference in patients’ lives!

When I’m not at work, I love music and the arts! In fact, I have a private studio and am the minister of music for a Middletown church. I also love all animals!
