Maria

Orthodontic Technician

Hi and welcome! I’m Maria and I’ll help you in the treatment area. I set up for each person’s procedure, assist Dr. Ammar with placing and removing orthodontic appliances, and offer patient care. I also take impressions and handle some lab duties.

I started working in the field in 2017, after having been certified as a dental assistant DATS. I started in a general practice, moved to a pediatric office, then found my professional home at Elite Orthodontics. I love being part of a team that helps people love their smiles!

I’m the proud mother of a handsome and very smart young boy and treasure time with him, my family, and close friends. I love reading, working out, and most any outdoor physical activity, especially if it can be enjoyed with friends.

Estilla

Orthodontic Technician

Hi everyone! Welcome to Elite Orthodontics.  My name is Estilla but I like to be called Nene.  I assist Dr. Ammar with all the orthodontic appliances, setting up for patient's treatment, as well as making sure the patient is happy!

I started my education in the Phillipines and I have been a dentist for over 30 years; which has made me very detailed oriented.  About 6 years ago, I came to the United States to continue working in the dental field.  Now that I am working with Dr. Ammar and my amazing team, I am so happy and estatic to help all the future patients.

When I am not working, I love to cook any types of foods as well as hang out with family and friends.  I also love to enjoy short walks, bake cookies, and relax at home.

 

Jennifer

Treatment Coordinator

Hello and welcome to Elite Orthodontics! I’m Jennifer and I will be taking care of you on your consultation.  Together, we will discuss about your concerns, create a unique treatment plan as well as financials that work for you!  I will explain all the pros and cons about our services in order to find what best fits your lifestyle.

I studied at Radford University and NVCC in which I recieved my degree in Science. Currently, I am still working on expanding my knowledge more in science as well as orthodontics.  Once I met Dr. Ammar, I was estatic! Dr. Ammar and my coworkers are truly talented and passionate in their fields. I am extremely grateful to have an awesome team who loves to work hard and make patients happy.

I have also volunteered at a physical therapist clinic - helping kids, adults, and elders get back in great shape. As an olympic weightlifter, I love to lift big weights and stay active as much as possible.  On my off days, I typically love hanging out with friends, family and take my dog to the dog park!
