Nikole

Orthodontic Assistant / Lab Coordinator

I take great pride in providing outstanding service to our patients and love how our patients share their life stories with us. Each patient is like a part of our family. I love seeing people’s faces when they get their braces off and how happy they are with how beautiful their smile is. Dr. Hong is fun and she makes it easy to come to work every day. My team is great, too. They are always willing to lend a hand when needed.

I have a wonderful husband, four beautiful daughters, and two dogs in our full house. We spend most of our free time at our kids’ softball games.

My favorite thing about my job is our patients. Each patient is excited to be here, and they always know how to make me smile. We have a friendly, courteous team that contributes to a fun, social work environment. I admire Dr. Hong for being such an excellent orthodontist. Her hard work and guidance has helped make my job very fulfilling.

My beautiful family and I love spending time at church and being outdoors. In my spare time, I like to go fishing, watch movies, and try new recipes.

Every day, I strive to treat our patients in a warm, compassionate manner; I want them to enjoy smiling, and to smile often! It doesn’t hurt that our practice is such a fun place to be. We are constantly interacting with our patients, and trying to make sure that each person enjoys their time spent at our practice.

Some of my hobbies outside the office include going to the zoo with my kids, camping, and crafting. We also love spending time with our family and friends.

As the receptionist and financial coordinator, I am able to interact with our patients on a daily basis to help make their orthodontic experiences positive. My duties include helping our patients with financial arrangements, billing, coordinating with insurance providers, and answering any questions they may have. I love working in orthodontics and seeing what a difference a wonderful smile makes in our patients’ lives.

I am the mother of an amazing teenage daughter. I enjoy spending time with her and my friends, and I love going to the lake. I also have a passion for cooking.

Our patients are great, and I enjoy making them smile. From saying hello to our patients when they arrive for appointments until they leave, it is my top priority to make sure that they feel comfortable. I also appreciate our commitment to using state-of-the-art technology to help our patients get the awesome smiles they want. I love my job because I am able to have fun with the outstanding team I work with, and every day I have the great satisfaction of creating lifelong beautiful smiles for our patients!

Orthodontic Assistant

It is my job to assist Dr. Hong during various orthodontic procedures, as well as make sure our patients are comfortable by answering any questions they may have and making them feel at ease throughout their appointments. I’ve always had a passion for teeth and helping people improve their appearance. I enjoy getting to know our patients and seeing them smile when they leave our practice.

I am happily married with a three-year-old son. I love to run in my spare time.

Stephanie

Orthodontic Assistant

I have been working as an orthodontic assistant since 2003 and a dental hygienist since 2011. My favorite part of being an assistant is working with the patients throughout their treatment. It is so rewarding to work with Dr. Hong and the team at Hazelwood Orthodontics and to see the smile makeovers that are done at this office. She truly gives you a smile that you can’t help but use!

Other things that keep me smiling are my three children, playing volleyball and softball, and being a loyal NBA and MLB fan.
