Meet the Team

 

Paula

Paula

Office Coordinator / Finance Manager

I have had the good fortune to work for Dr. Weiss for more than 38 years and can’t imagine working in a better place or for a better person. My first 15 years here I served as Dr. Weiss’s assistant, but as the practice grew, I found myself spending more and more time in our business office.

Having the opportunity to get to know patients from the very first day they come and seeing them through to the end result has never ceased to be exciting. Now, after 38 years, I have the pleasure of seeing our former patients bring THEIR children to us!

When I’m not here, my husband and I spend every moment possible with our children and precious grandchildren.

Jackie

Scheduling Coordinator / Receptionist

Over 37 years ago I decided to take a part-time job answering phones in a dental office and fell in love with it. Helping and encouraging others toward beautiful, healthy smiles is such a rewarding experience and working for Dr. Weiss is a pleasure. After so many years of working here, our patients have ceased to be patients to me and they’ve become more like family, not to mention my fellow team members.

When I’m not at work, I spend every possible moment with my precious grandson and beautiful granddaughter.

 

Amy

Amy

Insurance Coordinator

I've been working with Dr. Weiss for more than ten years. I’m the one you will talk with whenever you might call with a question concerning your insurance, but I also enjoy helping the other ladies greet you when you come in for your appointment or to schedule your next one. I was new to the orthodontic world when I first came here but it didn’t take long for me to realize that this was where I belonged. Working for Dr. Weiss and being in such a happy, energetic environment makes me want to come to work each and every day.

When we aren't at work, my husband and I spend every spare minute we have just playing and having fun with our little boy.  They just grow up so fast!!

Licensed Orthodontic Assistant

I have been involved in orthodontics for more than 36 years and was fortunate enough to be involved with some terrific practices. When I moved to Memphis from Nashville over 16 years ago, there was only one person I wanted to work for and that was Dr. Weiss because I had heard he was the best.

Dr. Weiss isn’t just a great orthodontist though; he's also a genuinely good person who sincerely cares about his staff and each one of his patients, and he is completely dedicated to his family. The main reason I love what I do is because I love people. Every person that sits in that chair throughout the day comes with his or her own feelings and personality. Being able to spend that time with them, getting to know them and knowing that you’re helping to make them have a more beautiful smile, makes coming to work every day so fulfilling. We have lots of fun, too!

When I'm not at work, I love to travel or you might see me on the road to Nashville where I enjoy spending every moment I can with my beautiful granddaughters!  Oh!  I also love painting and sculpting (or, really, anything to do with art).

Lab Technician

I have been with Dr. Weiss for more than 16 years. The first few years, I worked in our business office. Then I moved to the clinical area and started working in our lab. I’ve enjoyed the work I’ve been involved with in both areas, because there are always challenges to face that make each day interesting. I still get to work with our patients too, which makes each day fun and exciting.

When I’m not at the office, you will probably find me with my husband on the softball field, catching balls behind home plate or spending time with my incredible family and my Yorkie-Poo, Zoey.

Licensed Orthodontic Assistant

I have worked with Dr. Weiss for about 16 years. I took a few years off when I had my children, but when it came time to return to the workforce, there was nowhere else and no one else I would have even considered. I enjoy the relaxed environment and the fun we have as a staff, knowing we’re making a difference in our patients’ lives.

When I’m not working or enjoying being a new bride, I keep busy with my other jobs: cheerleading, coaching, chauffeuring, nursing, and counseling. You guessed it: being the best mom I can to my daughter and son!

Kristi

Licensed Orthodontic Assistant

When you come in to the office and you think you've seen me before - well - you probably have!   I also work for Dr. Josh Brink who is a Pediatric Dentist.  I had been dividing my time between both offices for about 11 years and, even though my background is in Pediatric Dentistry, my love for orthodontics, after over 21 years, simply won out.  I still work in both offices - I just spend the majority of my time here.  Dr. Weiss and all the ladies have become like my second family.

When I’m not working, you will probably find me sitting with my younger son behind third base at the ball field, where my husband helps coach both of our older sons’ ball teams.

Licensed Orthodontic Assistant

I have been involved in the dental field for more than 32 years and came to work for Dr. Weiss 24 years ago. I took a number of years off of work in between to be a mom and raise my son and daughter, but wouldn’t have dreamed of working anywhere else when I was ready to return to work. I love what I do because there is always a new challenge each time a patient visits, due to the changes their teeth are going through. I just love seeing the end results!

I have been happily married to my high school sweetheart for over 27 years, and we enjoy nothing more than spending time with our kids. Anything we do together as a family is always fun!

Rachel

Licensed Assistant

I have been working in orthodontics for more than 15 years and have worked in many different offices, but none has made me feel more at home than this one. Sometimes you just know when you are in the right place and this is it for me! I already knew I loved doing what I do but being in an environment like we have here makes coming to work every day bring a smile to my face.

When I’m not here at the office, I love to work in my garden, go four wheeling, or do anything that involves the outdoors with my favorite people in the world: my husband and three children!

 

 

 

 

Sharon

Licensed Assistant

I've been in orthodontics for over 27 years and, after working in Nashville for 22 of those, I decided to come back home to be with my family here in Memphis.  After being part of such a great team there, I knew the only practice that would meet the standards I was use to, was with Dr. Weiss.  I haven't been disappointed! Not only did everyone welcome me with open arms but their work is excellent and the relationships they have with their patients have the friendliness and warmth that I love.

I'm pretty much an outdoor girl so, even though I love cooking up new dishes in my kitchen, when I'm not at work, you will usually find me at the lake or cruising the back roads of Tennessee.

Ashley

Licensed Assistant

I was a patient of Dr. Weiss, originally, and always enjoyed coming to the office because everyone made me feel so relaxed and welcome.  After I started working in the dental field, myself, and had the opportunity to work here part time - I jumped at the chance!  One thing led to another and, now, I have been here FULL TIME for over five years! Now, it's my goal to make each patient feel as incredible as I felt every time I came here!

Yes, orthodontics is my passion but I do have another one - I compete in Fitness Competitions.  Keeping myself fit and maintaining a nutritional balance that works for me is like having a second full time job - BUT I LOVE IT!!

 

 

Jennifer

Accounts/Licensed Assistant

 

For the past three years I have been one of the smiling faces that greets you as you come in to the office but I am also the person you might speak with if you have a question about your account.  Even although I am, primarily, in our business office, I have been involved in the clinical side of dentistry for over 14 years - 10 years, of that time, was in Pedodontics.  So, I guess you could say, it's in my blood!

When I'm not here my life revolves around my children and having quality time with my husband.

 

 

Mattie

Licensed Assistant

When I first came here I was in charge of sterilization and maintaining patient flow but, the longer I was here and the more I observed, I knew that this was what I wanted to do!  I have been here for over two years at this point and I have acquired my license so I am on my way to reaching my goals!!  It seems I just can't get enough of this world and the satisfaction that you get from helping someone feel better about themselves!  I want more!

When I'm not here having fun, I always manage to have fun wherever I am!! Life's too short not to - don't you think!?
