Meet Our Staff

Office Manager

I graduated from college in June of 1993 and immediately started working with Dr. Snyder. I was the only front office coordinator in our Martinsville location. I try to be the example for our office. As office manager, I pride myself in taking care of our patients, my team and of course Dr. Snyder. We are one big family here. I am always available for our patients and the girls I work with. I have been married to my high school sweetheart since July 1993, and have two precious daughters. My hobbies are playing the piano, church activities and spending as much time as possible with my kids and husband.

We have the best patients anywhere! This is one reason I have worked in the orthodontic field for 15 years. Dr. Snyder, in my opinion, is a “cutting edge” orthodontist, bringing new technology to our patients. Helping Dr. Snyder in the practice is extremely rewarding for me because I can see the results of straightening teeth and the joy the patients receive with their new smile.

I have worked in the dental field since 2000. I started with Dr. Snyder in June of 2005 as scheduling coordinator. In January 2007, when one of our clinical assistants retired I changed positions and began to train as an orthodontic assistant. My favorite part of my job is interacting with the patients and the great time I have with my co-workers. I have two sons in high school. My hobbies are going to athletic events that my children are involved in, motorcycle riding, eating and reading.

I have worked in the dental field for the past 15 years and for Dr. Snyder since May of 1999. I truly enjoy getting to know our patients and their families. We have a wonderful atmosphere in our office that provides a fun place for our patients to come and a great place to work. We are all like sisters here and really enjoy being together. In my spare time, I love to be with my husband and my two teenage sons, which keep me very busy, especially during baseball season. My favorite hobby is definitely shopping.

I have worked in the dental field since 1997 and have worked for Dr. Snyder for the past three years. My favorite part of this job is the relationship the staff has with each other and our patients. I have three children ages 10, 6 and 4. On my days off I work as a certified massage therapist for a local salon, Reflections.

I have been working with Dr. Snyder since 2006. I have been in the dental field for 12 years. I am responsible for taking photos, x-rays and records. I love working for this office. We have a great staff and work well together. I enjoy interacting with our patients. I have one daughter who is 12 years old. I enjoy watching my daughter play softball and spending time with my family and friends.

I began working for Dr. Snyder as his scheduling coordinator in January 2007. It has been a real pleasure working with Dr. Snyder and the team as well as meeting many great people. I have been married for 27 years and have two wonderful daughters and three very special grandchildren. I enjoy all types of crafts – especially sewing, spending time with my family and going to races. I look forward to meeting many more new people and experiencing the before and after transition of their smiles.
