Our Team

Cole

Cole

When Dr. J was 18 he had jobs where he felt severely under-appreciated: Mowing lawns, pumping gas, bagging groceries, and feeding Tapioca to old people. He decided then and there he would find a job where he was severely over-appreciated. His dream came true. While acknowledging that he works hard and always does his best Dr. Cole readily admits he is surrounded by amazing family, staff, and patients that make JFO what it is. Dr. Johnson is a very traditional family man but he also loves to have a good time. One of his favorite past-times is people-watching on the Vegas strip; he likes to take the Bible out of his hotel room and cross off the commandments as he sees them being broken. A kind of self-righteous game of bingo. Dr. Cole also believes firmly that if you’re about to say something stupid you should stop yourself and sing it loudly instead. He’s got the best job in the world, and is surrounded by the best people. Period.

Daisha

Daisha

If you ever come in the office and notice a series of darling, seasonal decorations and ample yet tasteful design elements, or Dr. J dressed remotely fashionable than you’ve seen Daisha’s handiwork. Dr. J gushes about his amazing wife’s talents, good-looks and sweetness so often you’ll most definitely want to hate her. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to. She’s as graceful and lovely as a yearling fawn in the woods...unless she gets mad. Then she’s like a graceful, lovely fawn in the woods that can breathe fire and somehow learned how to use a hatchet. Dr. Johnson loves her more than life itself and constantly wonders when she’s going to realize she accidentally married him and had his babies.

Danielle

Danielle

Danielle is a terrific mother to two little girls of her own and she ‘claims’ to be pregnant again. Most of us are pretty sure that this is just a clever guise to eat exorbitant amounts of Taco Bell and take frequent potty breaks. But we’ll just see if this human ‘baby’ ever materializes…and I won’t believe it until I see the thing peeking at me, wrapped up in a blanket (and NO, Danielle, a warm flour tortilla doesn’t count). Danielle is one of our Ortho Assistants and she’s SO good at what she does. She’s also like the only one who routinely argues with Dr. J but he’s chalked it up to the hormones and prenatal pills. If it continues post-partum, Dr. J has an ample supply of Women’s One-a-Day and progesterone he plans on taking so that he can defend himself.

Jacqualyn

Jacqualyn

Jacqualyn is also one of our lovely Orthodontic Assistants. She’s good at pretty much whatever she tries. And she’s tried just about everything. She’ll even tell you this…often..and loudly. If she’s in the middle of a story where she’s one-upping someone you know “Well, one time MY fever was so bad….” you’re welcome to just walk away. Don’t feel bad, either. That’s because she won’t stop telling the story, she’ll just find the next closest person and continue on with even greater detail. Then, if that person walks Jacqualyn will continue on enthusiastically to no one in particular. Anyway, she is quite possibly the kindest person you’ll meet so come in, meet her, tell her about yourself, then watch as she has a story that is way better than your stupid, dumb, boring, story.

Madison

Madison

Madison is a “Horse-person”. No, not like a cool Centaur-warrior-lady…don’t be dumb. She just likes horses…like, a lot! If you let her dress herself she’ll wear something uniquely chic but decidedly equestrian (think of a boutique stable shop that meets Forever 21). Maddie responds to nearly every situation by quoting a movie, or speaking in an accent, or repeating back what you say in a slurred lisp speech in order to try and make it a joke. It works most of the time, but mostly we’re laughing at her. That’s all you really need to know, unless you too are a horse person in which case I wish you luck getting her to quote the entire script of Mean Girls; all she’ll want to discuss is the difference between English and Western dressage.

Melissa

Melissa

Melissa is the lab tech and our retainer expert around here. She’ll remind you of that goth chick from high school who actually turned out to be pretty nice. Like a Tim Burton character. She’s always giggling uncontrollably which - for most people - is a good sign, but for her, we’re never sure. First of all, her laugh sounds like a nervous canary and she seems to do it at the most inopportune times. Whether you try out your funny joke about a one-legged Llama or tell her that your Aunt Jackie fell down the stairs and broke her hip, the exact same high-pitched-machine-gun-like snicker will trickle from her mouth. Melissa’s so sweet and everyone loves her but we’re all just glad she traded in her trench coat and Nine Inch Nails shirt for some scrubs.

Amy

Amy

This is Amy. WARNING: You’ll love her but she has some issues you’ll need to know about, 1) Don’t talk to her about your pets; she’ll start crying and immediately ask to scour your camera roll to see pictures of Mr. Wiggles (or whatever your stupid cat’s name is). 2) Don’t tell her how nice or pretty you think she is; she’ll make this weird scoffing noise and immediately start acting gruff, roll her eyes, and play with her collar awkwardly. But even if she’s horrible about taking compliments she’s AMAZING at making families feel welcome, comfortable, and informed. People actually like her way more than they like Dr. J…which is pretty annoying. Like I said: You’ll love her, but you’ve been warned.

Bri

Bri

Bri looks exactly like a beautiful Disney princess when she’s smiling. When she’s not smiling, she looks like that girl who went to Juvey for bringing a shiv to school and threatened to cut her ex's new girlfriend in Humanities. The trick, I guess, is to keep her smiling. Luckily she loves being an assistant to the assistants, helping out in sterilization and helping Dr. J with the social media. She is crazy capable and wicked smart…probably street smart stuff she learned while in Juvenile Detention.

Adi

Adi

As our receptionist Adi's sunshiney face will surely greet you when you first walk into JFO. She makes people feel warm all over; like a pet lizard lounging on one of those electric heated rocks. But unlike a pet lizard she’s relatively free from E. Coli. Similarly to many lizards, however, she’s amphibious; able to perform her duties on land and in the water. We’ve never actually tested this but I’m confident that given a waterproof phone, Adi could easily make an appointment or check someone’s insurance. Adi also helps with our Marketing and she’s affectionately known as our “Normal Ad Whiz” around here - which, you guessed it - is an anagram for “Lizard Woman”…go figure.

Greta

Greta

Greta is the firstest, cutest, sweetest face you’ll see when you walk in. She’ll immediately greet you with an emoji-like smile where her eyes turn into slits because her freckled cheeks slowly pinch them into obvlivion. Greta only has one mood and that is ‘perennially pleasant’. The part that will confuse you is when you see that her reaction remains the same whether you’re talking about the weather, complaining about your bill, or telling her your Aunt Jackie fell and broke her hip. Don’t worry, she’ll change up her reactionary phrases and say old-lady phrases like “Oh, that’s neat” “Goodness me!” “You don’t say!” or “Poor Aunt Jackie”.

Tanya

Tanya

Tanya is our Observation Coordinator which means she helps Dr. J keep track of how the kids (who aren’t yet ready for braces) are growing and developing. She’s one of the loveliest humans you’ll ever meet. She’s the type of woman who walks around with a hopeful and confident bounce; shoulders back, perfect posture, and decisive steps…especially when she has no idea where she’s going. Whether she’s on her way to an important appointment or is wandering aimlessly through the office without a clue what to busy herself with her tiny feet self-assuredly stalk the halls of JFO as if one each leg is trying to one-up the other. Until Dr. J notices and tells her to sit down and get something done. Anyway, you’ll love Tanya.

Hannah

Hannah

Hannah is the only girl (who isn’t 5 years old) you’ll ever meet that will literally skip as her primary mode of transportation. When she’s in a REALLY good mood this quickly evolves into a gallop which can be dangerous. Luckily we have Maddie on hand to handle her. She tosses her head back in huge cackles when she thinks your funny but if she doesn’t, her otherwise normal lovely face contorts to the point where her nostrils flair and her chins outnumber her blinks per minute. Hannah is an Orthodontic assistant which basically means she tells Dr. J what to do since he’s kind of scared of her. And not just because her skipping gets aggressive.
