We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I love that we have created an orthodontic office where our patients and families feel comfortable. We have wonderful staff members who focus on each person, making them the top priority during visits. At our office,I am our HR as well as accounts receivable and payables manager. I also maintain our computers and provide tech support for our digital X-ray and digital impression machines. It is a great feeling to have worked with Dr. Woods since 1990, keeping the practice running smoothly, so our patients receive the best care while achieving their new smiles!
As a child and young adult, I lived in different countries while my father served in the U.S. Air Force. Now, I live in Sandwich and enjoy the beaches of Cape Cod, reading, movies, and spending time with my husband, beautiful daughter, and friends.
During my day, I enjoy guiding our patients through the beginning stages of their orthodontic care. At all initial appointments I work with our patients and Dr. Woods to explore different treatment options to choose the best approach for each individual. I love seeing our patients so confident and comfortable with their smiles at the end of treatment. I truly enjoy being a part of each patient’s journey to a happier, healthier smile! When I am not in the office, I spend time with family and friends and ride my horses at our family-owned farm.
My name is Heather. I joined the office in September of 2013. As the appointment coordinator I strive to make our schedule as efficient and convenient as possible for our patients. I enjoy speaking with and getting to know the patients and their families. It's fun to watch the kids grow up and see their beautiful smiles after they finish their treatment!
Imaging and Insurance Coordinator
My name is Jessica and I joined the Woods Orthodontics team in September of 2015. I feel very fortunate to be cross trained in both the clerical and clinical areas of Dr. Woods' practice. Some responsibilities of mine include: greeting patients at the front door with the proper Covid-19 paperwork in order to maintain safety for our patients and staff, confirming dental insurance coverage, importing patient photos and x-rays from the initial to final stages of their treatment into our records, and assiting Dr. Woods in the clinic. It brings me great joy to send before and after photos to our patients once their smiles have been transformed!
When I am not at Woods Orthodontics, you can find me taking photos all over Cape Cod and spending time outdoors with my husband.
I enjoy building friendly relationships with patients. It’s fantastic to see how much each person changes as they get their new smile: they become much happier and outgoing! I make sure patients are comfortable in the chair, prepare them for their procedure, and work chairside. I also take diagnostic records and teach patients and parents about orthodontic and dental care. I love being part of creating a lifetime of beautiful smiles!
I’ve lived on Cape Cod my whole life. When not working, I’m usually with my young son and friends and family. I enjoy going to the beach, being outside, and laughing with others.
I enjoy talking with and getting to know our patients. We care for people of all ages, so I’m always learning something new from them! Seeing a person go from feeling self-conscious to being thrilled with their smile is the best experience and I see it every day! I bring the patient to the chair, make sure they’re comfortable, and explain what Dr. Woods will be doing. Then I sit chairside, helping Dr. Woods while talking with our patient. I also offer information about orthodontics and take diagnostic records.
When I’m not at Woods Orthodontics, I love being at the beach. I was born and raised on Cape Cod and love raising my daughter here. My family and I like being outdoors, especially when we’re near salt water.
My name is Melissa and I graduated from the dental assistant program at Lincoln Technical Institute in 2013. I joined the Woods Orthodontics team in August of 2017. One of the most rewarding parts of being an orthodontic assistant is the happiness and appreciation our patients give us for what we do. We enjoy making people more confident in themselves. I am never too busy to stop and explain each procedure as treatment progresses so that patients have a full understanding of their orthodontic care. My coworkers and our easy-going patients make it a pleasure to be here each day and I love the relationships we create with each patient. In my free time I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with my cat Penny.
My name is Kalyn and I joined Woods Orthodontics in September of 2018. I enjoy meeting new patients daily and helping them feel more confident about their smiles. It is a very special thing for me when I notice someone's confidence change because of their smile. As an assistant, I try to make sure each patient is comfortable in the clinic and understand their treatment plan while working chairside with Dr. Woods. Working here for several years has increased my knowledge of orthodontic care. In my free time, I enjoy reading, being outdoors and walking my dog Phoebe.
My name is Brigette. I'm 28, from Harwich and I have a four year old son whom I enjoy spending most of my time with. We love to explore, take nature walks, but swimming is our favorite thing to do in the summer!
