Anderson Office Staff
Maria: Scheduling Coordinator
You all know Maria as the sweet smile that greets you every single time you come in, but to Team LMO she is all that and so much more! Maria is her name and organization is her game. She puts those organizational skills to work everyday as she works the puzzle that is our schedule, making sure all of you are seen at times that work with your busy lives. She's also the friendly voice on the other end of the phone and handles all of the behind the scenes of taking payments, scanning documents, answering emails, and keeping all of us on the straight and narrow. Outside of the office Maria loves a girls night out and spending time with her new grandbaby, Layla Kate.

Jessica: Treatment Coordinator
There isn't a title we could give Jessica to encompass all that she is to our entire office on a daily basis! But first and foremost she's a smiling face and welcoming personality to help all of our new patients feel comfortable and excited about starting their orthodontic journey. She's also full of answers for all the questions you may have during your first visit here! Behind the scenes she's busy pouring her heart and soul into whatever else needs her attention around the office before going home and giving the same to her husband and three kids before waking up and doing it all over again! Day after day after day. We are so glad she's ours and we know you all love her as much as we do!!

Edie: Orthodontic Assistant
Edie is the life of every party she's at including ours! We can always count on her to bring fun and laughter to our days as well as our patients' days and with over 25 years of orthodontic experience, she has pretty much seen and done it all when it comes to brackets and wires! When not at the office, she brings her larger than life personality home to her husband Jimmy and two grown kids, Troy and Haley, and on the weekends you can usually find her out socializing somewhere in Anderson!

Away from the office, Amanda stays busy as a "boy mom" to three young boys and also an animal mom to many goats, chickens, dogs, and cats!

Leah: Orthodontic Assistant
With 10 years of experience in a variety of fields of dentistry in many different parts of the country and a personality that connects well with patients of all ages, Leah is a huge asset to our team and helps us deliver exceptional care and excellent customer service to our patients day in and day out. Not only that, if any of us need a lunch buddy, work out buddy, or puppy play date, Leah is our girl! She also somehow finds time to pursue a degree in nursing on the side! When she's not thinking about orthodontics or nursing, you can usually find her either traveling or doing something outdoors with her German Shepard, Henry! Fun fact: Leah's dream job is to become a traveling nurse!

Sommerly: Orthodontic Assistant
They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, and that's certainly true here as Sommerly is the daughter of our Treatment Coordinator, Jessica! Called "Somme" by those who know her best, she is the youngest and newest member of our Anderson team, but you wouldn't ever know it! In a few short months she has learned how to perform almost any duty in the office. Be it up front with Maria, or assisting chairside, wherever we need some extra help, our girl is there to step in! She's also the hardest worker we know as a full-time college student majoring in Early Education and working two other part-time jobs as well! We're not sure how she does it all, but we're just glad she does! When she's not doing all of those things, she enjoys time with her friends and is the best big sister to her two younger brothers. Somme keeps us young and fun and we love having her around!
