Welcome to our practice! I am an orthodontic assistant, and I help check patients for progress or problems, give patient education, change wires, take impressions and pour models, take X-rays, and lots of other things! I have been in the orthodontic field since 1997, and love it! I enjoy getting to know each patient and helping to make their orthodontic experiences pleasant.

My husband, Marty, and I have two daughters named Erin and Colleen. We also have two dogs and several cats at home! I live a full and enjoyable life with my family and friends. My husband and I home school our two daughters. I like to run for exercise and I always love a good book!

Hello there! I am the receptionist and office manager, so I get to greet our patients as they come in the door! I also answer the phone, schedule patient appointments, perform new patient orientations, and other office duties. I was a patient of Dr. Penfield's in 1980 and I enjoyed it so much I began working for him in March 1981. I love meeting new people and developing a unique relationship with each patient. I also love being a part of creating beautiful new smiles!

My husband, Mark, and I have three grown children named Haley, Jadey and Corey. Our dog is Mowgli. I live on a small farm with a small lake not far from work. I am a member of the First Baptist Church of Alabaster, and have been for 25 years!

I take and develop x-rays, pour models and help to construct retainers, assist Dr. Penfield at the patient's appointment to change arch wires, put braces on, and give instructions to the patients. I also help get the units ready for each patient. I have just entered the dental field and have been with the office since May of 2011. I love seeing the before and after condition of the teeth and I enjoy seeing how much difference a beautiful smile can make for people. I love the comfortable environment I work in and how much Dr. Penfield cares for each patient.

I have five brothers and two sisters so there is never a dull moment in our family. I have two cats named Harly and Marla. I am a member of the Church of the Highlands, Riverchase. I love running and any type of exercise.
