Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I work with our new patients, helping them begin their journey to a beautiful smile here at DeFelice & Vecere Orthodontics. I love providing education about how a beautiful, healthy smile will not only improve function, but also self-esteem, which is priceless! I’ve worked in dentistry a long time—32 years—and have loved being a part of this office. My team and I all enjoy giving our patients and their families quality care, not just an orthodontic correction. We are like a family, since most of us have been working together for many years, which makes coming to work fun!
I have been blessed with two wonderful children, Will and Kaitlin, who are now all grown up and thriving. I have a grand-puppy, Paxton, who is a fun Boxer-mix rescue dog. I have a fantastic man in my life, Chuck. We enjoy our joined family (he has four incredible children), and traveling to warm places in the winter months. I love playing in my garden, exercising, spending time with family, and especially summer days on the beach with a good book!
Appointment Coordinator / Orthodontic Assistant
Now that Cathie has retired, I have big shoes to fill welcoming patients to our office. I will be scheduling appointments, taking payments, and processing new patient intake information.
I have been a part of this team for 15 years. We work well together here and we like to make our patients feel they are apart of our extended family.
I moved to the shore from Philly and I love it. I have been married to Bill for 40 years. We have 3 children and 3 grand children. Abbey is 7 and Brayden is 4 they love the beach,"Beach Baby" still to be determined for 6 month old Jules.
Insurance and Financial Coordinator
I handle all the financial aspects of our patients’ treatment, including the processing of all payments, setting up contracts, and filing for insurance. I consider myself to be a natural problem solver, so finding solutions help our patients receive the care they need is the best part of my job. I also really enjoy working with both doctors and the ladies on my team because we treat each other like a family. We discuss the problems of the world, and sometimes we find a solution, but mostly we just laugh a lot!
I have been married to the love of my life for 35 years. We have three boys of whom we are very proud. I am loving grandmother to a little girl and have another granddaughter on the way soon. My husband and I enjoy traveling, so once a year you will find me on an exotic vacation somewhere. I also have a Golden-doodle named Molly who is the best dog ever; she has added so much fun to our lives!
Our orthodontic assistants help the doctors with a wide range of procedures, including fixed Herbst and TAD delivery, Propel®, the delivery of orthodontic appliances, sterilization of all instruments, and restocking the units. They also provide patient education and assist with placing and removing braces, changing arch wires, and taking impressions and X-rays.
I enjoy every aspect of my job, love working with patients, establishing a relationship with them is very important to me. I also enjoy working in the lab fabricating appliances, I like challenges and being able to learn new things. My favorite part is when we can change someone's life just by doing our best.
I was born in Argentina and moved to the US in 2000. I am married to Marcelo and we have two daughters, Mariana and Daniela. We have one grandson Drake. We also have one dog, Charlie, a sweet black lab. I enjoy simple things in life like being with my family, the outdoors and camping, dancing, and cooking.
I love all aspects of orthodontics and I am privileged to be part of such a great team where we can make orthodontic dreams come true by creating beautiful smiles!
I'm married to Chip and we have three beautiful children Breece, Ava and Jackson. We also have two dogs Layla and Stout who are goofy English Bulldogs. We love spending time as a family camping, going to the beach, taking day trips, riding quads and motorcycles or just hanging out at a bonfire relaxing.
I love working chairside with patients of all ages and find it especially rewarding when I see their faces as their smiles improve. Here at our office, we're all like a family. We make a great team and share the same goal of giving our patients the best care and smiles that will last a lifetime.
I recently just got married to Frank, I am a proud mom of two grown children, Ricky and Brittini, and proud grandma of two little boys Nolan and Brantley. I have one pet, a chocolate lab named Tucker, who is my baby now since my children are grown. I enjoy going to the beach, roller skating, taking walks, and enjoy being outside.
