Tina - Treatment Coordinator
After a long career as a stay at home mom raising my 5 children, I began to work in the dental field. I joined Dr. Touni's team in March of 2016. I enjoy meeting new patients on a daily basis and forming new relationships that will last throughout their treatment and some even beyond. It is very rewarding to be part of changing lives one smile at a time.
Mari - Orthodontic Assistant
I used to work for Dr. Touni about thirteen years ago when he was a general dentist. I love that I was able to join him and now be part of his orthodontic practice. He was an amazing dentist as he is now an amazing orthodontist. My passions are my two daughters--they keep me very busy!
Maria - Orthodontic Assistant
I have been in the orthodontic field since 2006, and I love it. I really enjoy getting to know about our patients and being a part of creating their new smile. It's rewarding to see how our patients build their confidence as their treatment goes by and how happy they are when they see their new smile for the first time. When I am out of the office I enjoy spending as much time possible with family.
