Registered Dental Assistant

I have been with Tri-Cities Orthodontic Specialists since 2009. The most rewarding parts of my job are getting to know our patients, seeing the end results, and witnessing how happy and confident they are with their smiles once their treatment is complete. In my free time, I like to be outdoors and I enjoy spending time with friends and family.

I have been with Tri-Cities Orthodontic Specialists since 2007. I am one of the first voices you will hear when you call our new Kingsport location. I am truly blessed to work with such wonderful co-workers and be part of a group that makes beautiful smiles and gives self-confidence. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband Gerald, my children Tim and Kris, my five wonderful grandchildren, and my two step-daughters, Kristen and Cecilia. I am an animal lover, enjoy being outdoors, and watching and going to college football games.


jessica Jessica

Business Assistant

I work in the Johnson City office and I have been in customer service for over ten years. I am not afraid to jump in and get things done! I enjoy the one-on-one attention we give our patients and the focus we all put on meeting our patients’ needs. I love seeing the excitement when our patients get their braces and the confidence in their smile when they get them off. My husband Eric and I have one child, Corey, two Golden retrievers, and an African Grey parrot. In my free time, I enjoy gardening, camping, and quality family time.

Business Assistant/Certified and Register Dental Assistant

I have worked for Dr. Wood since 2005. I started out as a dental assistant but have recently taken a full-time front office position. I find orthodontics to be a very fun and rewarding field to work in and I enjoy getting to know each and every patient. My favorite part about my job is seeing how much patients change throughout their treatment. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending my spare time outdoors with my spouse Jon. I enjoy being on the lake, traveling, and watching NASCAR and NFL. I am also the proud mom of one cat, Lucy, and three dogs: Sidney, Bailey, and Brody..
