I feel so fortunate to come to work every day and be around all the wonderful people here. I enjoy working in orthodontics, and I am thankful for the opportunity to work with such amazing orthodontists! I feel confident in the care we provide. Our team is very caring. We laugh and have fun every day, and we all believe in communicating openly with our patients about their treatments. I am happily married with a daughter and a step-son. I enjoy spending my free time reading, cooking, and being with my family and friends.

Orthodontic Assistant

I enjoy working at Blue Wave Orthodontics.  I love orthodontics!  It’s amazing the way the teeth can be changed and the transformation in our patients’ smiles.  I’m blessed to wake up and come to work and have a great time.  I like to make our patients smile and make sure they have a great experience.  I work with a great team.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, photography and playing with my cats.

Orthodontic Assistant

When I graduated from assisting school, I had a goal to work in orthodontics.  I remember my experience with braces and how grateful I was for the staff that was here to help me through treatment.  I value the time I now get to spend with the patients here at Blue Wave and seeing their progress.  It is rewarding to see all the new smiles and happy faces that leave the office after getting their braces removed.  When not assisting, I enjoy cooking, baking and spending time with loved ones.

Orthodontic Assistant

Blue Wave Orthodontics was my first job after graduating from my dental assisting program with Porter & Chester.  While in school, I learned about ortho and knew this was my field.  I am now proud to be an ortho assistant for Dr. Maro.  My goal is to make every child and parent feel comfortable as if they were family.  I look forward to making your family smile!




Rye Team


Patient Care Coordinator

I assist our patients by scheduling their appointments, billing, and answering their questions about our office, whether in person or on the phone. While I love working with patients of all ages, I enjoy being around children the most. It’s wonderful to see them grow up right in front of our eyes! I am a working mother so when I’m not in the office, my kids, two dogs, and cat keep me pretty busy!




Orthodontic Assistant

I started working at Blue Wave Orthodontics after graduating from Mandl College of Allied Health with training in orthodontic assisting. I love watching our patients’ progress from the beginning of their treatment to the end, and seeing their satisfaction with their new smile. Our patients are so much fun; I look forward to the smiles and laughter that they bring to each appointment, and I enjoy helping them and growing with them throughout their treatments. When I’m not at work, I enjoy fishing and spending time with my family and friends.



Orthodontic Assistant

Making our patients happy and seeing them smile with confidence after their treatments are complete are just two of my favorite things about my job! I also enjoy the technical aspects of my job, especially making the appliances that help our patients achieve and maintain their beautiful smiles. Our doctors are dedicated and love what they do and it shows in the amazing smiles they create. When I have free time I love to run marathons!

Orthodontic Assistant

I started at Blue Wave Orthodontics about 4 years ago. I love the people I work with, so it makes for a fun and enjoyable atmosphere.  One of the perks of working in orthodontics is to see how the patient started and their amazing finish.  During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my son.  I also love baking and spending time with family and friends.
