Island Orthodontics is proud of our All-Star Orthodontic Team. We feel the most important aspect of any office is a friendly, professional, and fun staff. This creates a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere for everyone. Patients appreciate seeing the same smiling faces of our team throughout their orthodontic treatment. The average team member has been with Island Orthodontics for eight years. Together the staff has over 150 years of experience.
