Treatment Coordinator/New Patient Coordinator
I’ve been working with Dr. Sabatino since 1987 and have been in the dental field since 1973. I love every part of my job and enjoy positively influencing our patients’ lives by watching their smile transformation. Dr. Sabatino is a brilliant, caring, and ethical man, which is why I have remained loyal to his practice philosophy. He only wants the best for his patients and his passion for teaching has allowed me to continue learning every day.
I am a native of Indianapolis, Indiana and I married my husband, Phil, in 1973. I have two children, Scott, who lives on the Oregon coast, and Lindsay, who lives on the California coast. Phil and I love to travel and enjoy visiting our children several times a year. In my free time, I hike, kayak, and do outside activities. We have two rescue dogs and adore them.
I’ve been the financial coordinator for Dr. Sabatino since 1995. I am proud to be working for one of the finest orthodontic practices with other fun, caring, and professional people. It is so gratifying to provide the ultimate experience and results for our patients. Dr. Sabatino doesn’t compromise to achieve the superior results in orthodontic care. Every day is different and each orthodontic case is special. My job entails providing financial services for the office. I also assist in running the operation of day-to-day functions for patients and staff. We are all like family and care for each other and our patients.
I grew up in Wisconsin and moved to Arizona in my early twenties. I am the mother of three and the grandmother of three. My greatest joy is to be with my family. In my free time, I love to hike and read.
I have been in the dental field 36 years and began working with Dr. Sabatino in 1995. I take impressions, apply braces, remove braces, change wires, fit splints, and perform all aspects of orthodontic lab work. My favorite part of my job is working with our patients and making them smile. My work is my second family and I love all of them.
I am a native of Phoenix. My family and I are very active. We love to camp, boat, motor cycle ride, and razor ride (four wheeling). I have four kids and five grandkids so far. I also have a lot of animals. I love all sports and regularly do mud runs with my daughter, work out and hike.

I have been a front office coordinator for Dr. Sabatino since 2005. I have worked in the dental field since 1972 with seven of those years as a dental assistant. I love our patients; they are the best. I enjoy interacting with them and their families while getting to know them during the course of their treatment. My job entails checking in/out patients, making appointments, ordering supplies, confirming appointments, taking messages, and many other office functions.

I am a native of Dickinson, North Dakota and currently live with my daughter Elly and my English bulldog named Marli. We like to travel when we can, go out to eat, watch movies, and go to football and basketball games.
I have worked on this Team since 2007. In my job, I utilize special mechanical dental equipment to help Dr. Sabatino analyze the jaw function and tooth position of every patient so we can effectively demonstrate Dr. Sabatino’s treatment recommendations. As a lab technician, my primary responsibilities include taking molds, as well as creating slip-ons and positioners. The comfortable fit of orthodontic devices remains very important to our team. I enjoy working here because it’s like my second family. We all love and respect each other.

My job mostly entails directing the patient molds and radiographs. When I don’t have patients in my chair, I help the Team by performing various duties in clinic as an orthodontic technician.
