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


Welcome!!  As one of the front desk receptionists for Detterline Orthodontics I greet patients, schedule appointments, verify insurance and assist however I can. I have worked in the medical field for 14 years and definitely enjoy orthodontics the most! It's such a fun and positive atmosphere seeing all the smiles transitioning through treatment. Outside of the office I enjoy spending my time with my three children, and watching them play sports. I can't wait to say hello!


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 been in the dental field for the past 12 years and love orthodontics. I am certified in dental radiology and love working with people! 

I grew up in Poolesville and moved to Frederick in 1998. I have two children and while I'm not in the office I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I have two dogs (Daisy and Gunner) and a cat named "B". My family and I enjoy hunting together and I love planting and growing a beautiful vegetable garden each year. 


I have been an orthodontic tech for Detterline Orthodontics since 1997 and have been working in the field since 1983. I love meeting new people, making new friends, and giving our patients confidence with their new beautiful smiles. I also enjoy working with a team that is professional and passionate about orthodontics, and who also like to have a little fun!

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with family and my fur baby "Poppy". I enjoy bonfires, camping, kayaking, and the beach.


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!
