Meet the Team

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




Treatment Coordinator

I love watching each patient grow and change during treatment. Seeing a person fill with confidence and the increase in their self-esteem is always thrilling. I love being part of making amazing, lasting smile changes happen. I assist our patients with scheduling visits at times that work for their busy lives. I also review financial matters with patients and parents and file insurance paperwork.

When I’m not working, I’m usually with my two daughters, Lexi and Lani. We enjoy playing with our English bulldog, Riley. The girls keep me busy with cheerleading and T-ball activities. I also enjoy cooking and reading.




Orthodontic Assistant

I love seeing our patients excited about getting a new smile, and then watching them change as we gently shift their teeth. It’s incredible to see the confidence having a beautiful smile gives to a person. Even patients who were ashamed to show their teeth now laugh openly and happily. I take photos, X-rays, and impressions. I also assist Dr. Hanachi during visits, making sure he has everything needed and talking with our patient about what we’re doing.

I have a young daughter and son on the way.  Our family also includes three rescue dogs and three rescue cats. During the warm months I enjoy riding my Harley Davidson. One of my new hobbies is finding treasures at thrift stores.




Orthodontic Assistant

I love building lasting relationships with our patients. It’s fun to see them out in the community, sharing their incredible, confident smiles. I like that orthodontic care is available for everyone: it’s rewarding to help an adult get the smile they’ve always wanted and to give children and teens a smile for a lifetime. I work with patients during their visits, supporting Dr. Hanachi chairside. I am a second pair of hands for him, while talking with our patient.

My wonderful husband Dan and I have been married for 30 years. I have two children, a son-in-law, and two grandchildren, along with a multitude of pets. Dan and I enjoy kayaking on the weekends. I attend Elevation Church in Lake Norman.




Orthodontic Assistant

I love a patient’s smile when we remove their braces and they see the finished result! We all celebrate their achievement and are happy for them. Orthodontics is a time of change for people. Each patient becomes more comfortable with their appearance and confident in interactions. I assist Dr. Hanachi with placing and removing braces, as well as periodic adjustments. I also educate patients and parents about home care.

My husband Stacey, who was my high school sweetheart, and I, have a daughter and son. We love the outdoors and love going to the movies. Softball and yard sales occupy some of our free time, too.
