I have been working in the field of orthodontics with Dr. Nissen since 1999. I was born and raised in St. Louis. I enjoy getting to know our patients, as we get to see them every month. In my spare time, I love to exercise as well as spend time with my family and friends. In 2013, I married my favorite orthodontic patient Joe!
I recently started working at OCSL in the summer of 2019. I am planning on going to dental school and am looking forward to learning from Dr. Nissen and his staff. In my free time, I enjoy watching Netflix, crafting and spending time with my two dogs, Luke and Nellie.
I joined OCSL in 2010. I am from Venezuela and came to St. Louis in 2007. Dr. Nissen and his team made me feel at home from day one. I love working with kids and enjoy speaking Spanish with our Hispanic patients. I love to travel with my husband, but that’s on hold for now since we are busy taking care of our two beautiful kids who are just 15 months apart!
I started working at OCSL in August of 2021. In the future, I plan to pursue becoming an orthodontic assistant. In my free time, I love spending time with my husband and daughter going on outdoor adventures. When I am home, you will find me baking or decorating cakes.
Laboratory Technician/Certified Orthodontic Assistant with Expanded Functions
I have been working in the orthodontic field since 1998 and have been with Dr. Nissen since then. I originally started as a chairside assistant and in 2006 received my training in laboratory services. I enjoy making and creating retainers that will assist in keeping our patients’ smiles perfect.
Certified Dental Assistant with Expanded Functions
I have been working in the orthodontic field since 2000 and have been with Dr. Nissen since that time. I am originally from St. Louis and have been married since 2009. Outside of work, my husband and I keep busy with our beautiful daughter.
I joined the OCSL team in 2020, and everyone has made me feel right at home. I love being an orthodontic assistant and learning new things from Dr. Nissen every day. Being able to contribute to the transformation of so many beautiful smiles is truly a gift! When my husband and I aren’t too busy with our two rambunctious boys, I enjoy hiking, reading, and playing the ukulele.
I have been an orthodontic assistant since July 2019. I enjoy learning from Dr. Nissen and witnessing the transformation of both the patients’ smiles and confidence. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with friends, being outdoors, and creating art.
I started working at OCSL in 2021; however, I have known Dr. Nissen and his staff for many years as I started as a patient. Outside of work, I enjoy watching documentaries, traveling, and spending time with my friends and family, especially my two dogs.
I started at OCSL in October of 2021. I have been in the dental field for 2 years now. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my siblings as well as writing sentimental poetry. I love orthodontics because it is extremely gratifying to see our patients receive their dream smiles!
