Elena

Office Manager / Financial and Treatment Coordinator

meet the team

I joined the team at North Florida Orthodontic Specialists in 2013 and am responsible for overseeing all aspects of the office. I share the same goal of Dr. Barry and the rest of our team: to help patients be happy with their smile and teeth. There is nothing better than seeing how our patients’ smiles transform and seeing them happy with the end result.

I have a ten-year-old son and a two-year-old female dog named Ava. My life revolves around my son, work, and our dog. We are full of energy and love the beach, eating frozen yogurt at Nuberri, and going to theme parks.

 

Mary

Insurance Coordinator / Treatment Coordinator

meet the team

I deal with every aspect of insurance and assist our new patients by coordinating their treatment with their insurance coverage. I consider myself to be their advocate in the complicated world of benefits and coverage. I started working in the dental field in 1970 and joined Dr. Barry in 2015. My favorite part of my job is seeing people happy to come to their appointments and excited to see their new smiles!

I enjoy spending time with my family and my four awesome grandkids. I am a member of Good Samaritan Methodist Church. Two of the things I love the most are going the beach and reading.

 

Angela

Front Office

meet the team

I am excited to join North Florida Orthodontic Specialists. After 15 years of working in veterinary medicine, I am beyond grateful that Dr. Barry gave me this opportunity to learn something fun and new. I’m the one who gets to greet each patient with a smile while checking them in and out, updating records, and providing excellent customer care. My favorite part of my job is learning new things, and seeing patients so excited to come in and out of our office. Their smiles brighten my day!

I recently moved to Tallahassee from South Florida with my wonderful and extremely supportive husband and best friend, Corey. Together we spend most of our time exploring the outdoors. We love spending time on the beach, at the lake, and on the river with friends and family: snorkeling, fishing, four-wheeling, kayaking, and traveling to new places. I have three kitties at home — Frankie, Yankee, and Butters — and a silly little bunny named Theodore Cottontail. My other hobbies include baking, cake decorating, and all kinds of crafting.  

 

Louise

Front Office

meet the team

I have been working at our front office since 1996, where I’ve been happily checking patients out, answering the phones, taking payments, and answering general questions. I really enjoy building friendships with our patients and their families, and love catching up with them during their visits. Dr. Barry is so caring with our patients and interacts with them so well. We all work together and help each other out, just like family!

I live in Wakulla County, where I have resided for 23 years. I am the mother of three wonderful adult children as well as a son-in-law and daughter-in-law. I am also Nana to six beautiful grandchildren. I stay busy with work, family, and friends, as well as caring for my 91-year-old mother. Outside of family and friends, I enjoy going to the beach, watching movies, and planting flowers.

 

Tracey

Dental Assistant

meet the team

I started working in the dental field in 1992 after earning my AA in dental assisting, and I also hold a BA in business and teaching. I have been assisting Dr. Barry with placement of braces, all adjustments, X-rays, and retainers since joining the practice in 2013. My favorite part of my job is seeing patients’ progress and being happy when they are finished with their braces. Everyone in this office shares the goal to help patients smile.

I have been married for 22 years and have two children. Both of my girls are grown and are now in the Army. The kids have two cats that are loved and spoiled, and are living with us because the kids are always moving. I love to travel and go to the beach as much as possible. On my spare time or days off, I try to substitute at elementary schools or tutor elementary children who are struggling in school.

 

Justina

Clinical Supervisor

meet the team

I joined Dr. Barry in 1995. In addition to offering patient care during visits, I am our clinical supervisor. I ensure our clinic runs smoothly and that everything works right so we can concentrate on making patients smile! I enjoy working in orthodontics because I am able to build a relationship with each patient. When their transformation at the end is complete, it’s a great feeling to see and share in their excitement!

I enjoy spending time with friends and family. Our favorite activities are biking, going to the beach, and traveling.

 

Emily

Certified Orthodontic Assistant

meet the team

I became a part of North Florida Orthodontic Specialists in 2012, and brought with me more than eight years of experience in general dentistry and orthodontics. It’s fun to be part of the journey with our patients: watching them transform and become confident as their smile changes. It’s a good feeling to help people improve their lives with smiles!

I am originally from Tallahassee and live here with my husband and our two sons. The boys like playing soccer and football, and we all enjoy fishing together as a family. We also have a growing farm teeming with goats, chickens, and ducks!
