Meet the Team

 

April

Treatment Coordinator and Orthodontic Assistant, RDA

I love meeting new people and talking and laughing with our patients and parents. There is nothing more exciting than watching a friend’s smile transform and seeing how that improves their confidence and happiness! I’m lucky, because I help patients at their consultation, so I get to watch them from the first visit to the last. I walk patients through the process, review their treatment plan, and go over finances so they know what to expect. Additionally, I provide chairside assistance to Dr. Bart and Dr. Jarred, helping with patient care.

Originally from California, I moved to Tennessee in 1999. I’ve been happily married for almost 20 years and have three beautiful children. I love spending time with family and friends, attending church, and being outdoors.

 

Ashley

Financial and Appointment Coordinator, RDA

I love talking with our patients and parents and hearing what’s happening in their lives. We serve the best community and our patients are some of the best people. I am so happy to see each person’s confidence the day they finish and they see that new smile! I get to meet people as they start their orthodontic journey and introduce them to treatment. It’s fun to answer their questions and share in their excitement at getting a new smile. I also work in the clinic, providing assistance during various procedures.

I’m a mom of five wonderful kids. We’re always running around and there’s never a dull moment in our home. I do make time to exercise, though, and love keeping healthy.

 

Emily

Orthodontic Assistant, RDA

I love meeting and getting to know all of our patients! It's so much fun watching their smile transformation take place and the self-confidence they gain going through orthodontic treatment. One of the most exciting times for our patients is the day they get their braces off, and I always enjoy seeing patients beautiful new smiles when the brackets and wires come off!

Originally from California, I recently moved to Middle Tennessee. I’m happily married to my husband, Cameron, and we have two rescue dogs, Ghost and Ivy, and a rescue cat, Kylo. I love exploring new restaurants in Nashville and enjoy spending time outdoors!

 

Eva

Orthodontic Assistant, RDA

I love helping our wonderful patients achieve the smile they always dreamed about. It is extremely rewarding seeing someone smile for the first time with their new smile and new found self-confidence. I enjoy hearing about our patients’ lives and what they have been up to since their last visit. I work chairside, helping the doctors with clinical care.

I am a Middle Tennessee native. I’m happily married to my husband Jake, and we have a dog named Alice. We enjoy spending time at Disney with friends and family. We also love trying new restaurants and venues in Nashville.

 

Jessica

Orthodontic Assistant, RDA

I love helping people I care about achieve great smiles. At Benson Orthodontics, we truly have a positive impact on people’s lives. It’s amazing to see how a beautiful smile helps a person gain confidence and feel better about themselves! I work in the clinic, providing chairside assistance while the doctors work on patients and working directly with patients, too. I also handle ordering and inventory for all clinic supplies.

Originally from Indiana, I’ve called Tennessee home since 1996. I’m blessed to come from a big family of wonderful people and I have an amazing son and daughter, who I adore more than anything. I enjoy time with my kids and husband, especially hiking and kayaking, and we love football Sundays!

 

Katie

Orthodontic Assistant, RDA

I enjoy becoming friends with our patients as they move through treatment. It’s fun to keep up with everything that’s happening in their lives! Of course, the best part of working in orthodontics is the day when treatment is complete. Patients can’t stop looking in the mirror and laughing with delight over their perfect, beautiful smile! I work chairside, supporting patients while assisting the doctors with different procedures and making sure everything goes smoothly.

I was born and raised right here in Nashville, TN. I love spending time with my son, Asher, and husband, Craig. I cherish every moment with them! I enjoy traveling and running. Being a foodie, I love trying out new restaurants whenever I get the chance!

 

Kyndel

Orthodontic Assistant, RDA

I really enjoy meeting all of our new patients! I love building relationships with our patients throughout treatment. I assist the doctors chairside with arch wire changes, fitting and placing braces, making retainers, and anything else that needs to be done to provide outstanding treatment. The best part of my job is seeing patients’ reactions to their new smiles when their braces come off!

I was born and raised in Wilson County. I’m happily married to my husband Chris, and we have two dogs, Hazel and Leo. I enjoy staying active, being social with family and friends, and attending our church, The Bridge Fellowship.

 

Lauren

Orthodontic Assistant, RDA

I love getting to meet all of our patients. It’s fun hearing what they have been up to, how school or work is going, and what is new in their lives. I work with the doctors in the treatment bay, assisting with arch wire changes, fitting and placing braces, making retainers, and other things as well. I love seeing patients’ reactions when they get their braces off. It’s very rewarding to see them smile for the first time with their new smile!

Originally from Celina, TN, I have two dogs, Griffin and Roxie. I love being on the lake, camping, visiting state parks, and trying new restaurants. I’m very close with my family and love spending time with my fur babies.

 

Ro

Marketing and Appointment Coordinator

I love getting to know our patients and their families. I never get tired of watching a person change as they get their new smile! Seeing a person go from being shy and ashamed of their smile to being confident and outgoing is the best experience! I answer the phones and schedule appointments. I also handle marketing Benson Orthodontics to referring dental offices and the community, and plan all our fun office events, too.

I’m originally from Texas but have lived in Tennessee since 1985. I have a wonderful husband and son and I love planning special events and crafting in my free time.
