Dena

Office Manager / Financial Coordinator

I am responsible for coordinating the financial end of our patients’ treatment, submitting and reviewing insurance, processing automatic payments, and preparing deposits for over-the-counter payments. I enjoy helping our patients manage their financial needs and taking care of insurance claims so they don’t have that worry. The best part of my job is seeing the children’s smiles when they are finished and knowing we made their lives better.

I’ve been married for almost 40 years to my husband Donnie. We have two children, Heather and Justin, four grandsons — Will, Hunter, William, and Hoyt — and a very fat cat named Tigger. In my free time, I love to read, go to the movies, hang out with family, and travel.

Assistant

I assist Dr. Choi when putting on braces and working on patients, in addition to taking impressions, working in the lab, and taking X-rays. My extensive experience in orthodontics spans more than four decades, and in that time, I’ve seen a lot of smiles change for the better! None have been more beautiful than the ones created by Dr. Choi. I feel very blessed to work with such wonderful, talented people.

My husband Mark is a truck driver. I have gone in the truck with him, which was a true eye-opener! I have two grown children, Alana and Matt, as well as a black cat named Ziggy. My hobbies include singing, traveling, and trying out new things!

Mikah

Certified Dental Assistant

I began dental assisting my junior and senior years in high school and completed my formal training at Eastern Gateway Community College. My area is all things clinical: working with patients, doing lab work, you name it! I love conquering new challenges every day with the help of my team. We lift up each other and our patients to achieve the best results and create a good and memorable experience for everyone.

At home, I have a dog named China and cat named Black Betty Bam Ba Lam. I have been with my boyfriend Dustie for seven years; no kids yet, but someday! When I have free time, I love to sew, crochet, draw, color, and play drums and video games. My favorite show is “The Office.”

Brandi

Brandi

Registered Dental Assistant

My job involves working with small detailed objects, so attention to detail is a must. In the lab, I work with different types of materials, create expanders, and make retainers. There is such variety in my day-to-day tasks, since every patient requires unique appliances, that every day is interesting and new. I have such confidence in our team and know that they will always be there to when I need them.

I have been married to my husband Rick for 17 years, and we have three children — Zack, Andrew, and Hailey — and two boxer dogs. I am a freelance photographer, garden lover, and certified soccer coach, and I coach a U13 travel team. I also sing on the praise team at my church.

Renee

Receptionist / Scheduling Coordinator

I worked as a legal secretary for 25 years before transitioning to the orthodontic field, and love that my days are filled with smiles! I greet patients, welcome them to the office, schedule their appointments, and get to know all about them. I like meeting our patients and their families, but I especially enjoy working with Dr. Choi and our team. We all get along well while bringing different perspectives and talents to the office. They make every day interesting and fun to come to work!                                     

I have lived in Steubenville most of my life. I have been married to my husband Mark for more than 30 years. We have three grown boys: Matthew, Michael, and David. I don’t have any grandchildren yet, but I do have three grand-kitties: Catface, Baxter, and Sawyer. I enjoy spending time with all of them and the rest of my family and friends, as well as going to the beach and taking my yearly trip to Northport, Michigan.
