Meet the Team

We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. 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.


Justin

Welcome! I am the first person that you will meet at your initial appointment. I have been in the dental/orthodontic field for the past 14 years and I am pleased to have found an amazing home here at Innovative Orthodontics. As our treatment coordinator, I help patients become familiar with our practice, explain their needed treatment plan, and answer any questions that they may have before beginning orthodontic treatment. 

I appreciate all the time, quality, and dedication that Dr. Katz devotes to each and every one of our patients. I am proud to be a part of this incredible team and enjoy coming to the office each day!

When I am not working, I aspire to live life to the fullest, spend time working out, dancing, visiting friends and family, watching college football (ROLL TIDE!), and going to the beach. Did I mention going to concerts and being outdoors?

Jennifer

As the financial coordinator, I submit and collect insurance benefits which includes setting up the agreements and explaining and walking through the contractual obligations with parents and patients. It can be a confusing process but I’m here to make it as smooth as possible.

My first experience with Innovative Orthodontics was as a patient, bringing my family in for treatment. This perspective on the practice informs how I care for our patients!

I have been working at Innovative Orthodontics since 2014, formerly as the practice liaison. My background education includes a BA in English from Centre College and a Culinary Arts degree from the Culinary Institute of America (CIA!).

I enjoy meeting new patients and family members and watching the progression of their beautiful new smiles. Here at Innovative Orthodontics, we strive to maintain a friendly and upbeat office while giving our patients the very best, top-notch care.

I am married with three teenage boys and have a loyal rescue dog. My interests include finding unique and off-the-beaten-path restaurants, traveling, and hiking with my family.

Monika

Welcome everyone! I have the pleasure of working at the front desk as Innovative Orthodontics schedule coordinator. Prior to working with Dr. Katz, I worked in field of general dentistry for nine years and also in orthodontics for seven years in South Africa.

My family and I immigrated to America from Durban, South Africa in 2013. For the past year, I helped my husband start his business with Cheese Burger Bobby's in Cumming. When not working, we spend our time watching our son's soccer matches and our daughter competing in Latin American rhythm/smooth, and country dance competitions.

Adrianne

Good day everyone! My name is Adrianne, your insurance coordinator and scheduler of new patient appointments. I’m the one who finds out how much your insurance company pays for your orthodontic care. I’m happy to help you navigate the world of insurance so please feel free to call me.

I have been in the medical field for nearly 20 years as a CNA and as a patient care secretary until I decided to see what was in the dental field for me. I wanted a little change of pace and I am loving every minute of it!

I enjoy coming to work every day and working with Dr. Katz and staff. Dr. Katz is an amazing doctor who takes her time to make sure everyone has a perfect smile; the dedication she instills with each patient is just amazing. Joining the team here at IO has been an awesome experience for me… very friendly and so welcoming. They make me feel like family, and I hope you feel the same!

A little about myself: I am recently married to a wonderful man and I have three children, one in college at GA Southern and two in high school. I also have two sweet fur babies. We enjoy kayaking, hiking, and camping.

Jen

As Innovative Orthodontics’ practice liaison, I have the opportunity to meet the local dentists and their staff. My responsibilities include marketing the practice, creating contests and promotions, managing the social media, and building relationships within the community. Basically, all the fun stuff!

While I am new to the dental/orthodontic field, I have more than 20 years of experience in global marketing, communications, and advertising in both the corporate and start-up worlds. I’ve worked in such varied industries as technology, incentive, customer service, environmental, and non-profit. My strengths include creative communications, branding, and messaging.

I am having a great time getting to know everyone and learning the ins and outs of orthodontics since joining the team in May of 2017. I’m very impressed with the technology IO uses and how Dr. Katz and the team leverage that technology to give patients the best possible experience.

My husband and I have two kids and we recently added a new puppy to the family. I enjoy playing tennis (except when I lose!), I’m a big Elvis fan (thank you, thank you very much), and I would love to travel more, so if anyone has a yacht or jet they aren’t using, my passport is ready to go! 

Kris

Hello everyone! I have enjoyed working as Dr. Katz’s financial coordinator since 1994. I have been involved in the field of dentistry my entire adult life and have worked in orthodontics since 1982. When you become part of the Katz family, I will have the pleasure of working with you to help meet your individual financial needs.

I am married to a wonderful man named Raymond, and now have six grown children, six grandchildren, and two great grandchildren. My oldest daughter has followed in my “dental footsteps” and is a dental hygienist! In my spare time, I enjoy RV camping with the Winnies, scrolling through my iPad, and reading.

Regina

Hello! I've been an orthodontic assistant for the past 26 years but have had the pleasure of working chairside with Dr. Katz since 2005. I received my SureSmile® certification in 2008 and go to continuing education courses every other year. In addition to being the OSHA coordinator for the office, I am also instrumental in the fabrication of appliances and retainers for our patients.

I am a Falcons and Bulldogs fan but do love “real” animals as well! In fact, I am known as the “rescuer” of small homeless creatures… that is how Pearl the kitty came to live at our home! Free time is spent with my husband of 20 years and our three kids, hiking, swimming, and riding our 4-wheelers!

Kayla

Hello! I've been in the orthodontic field since 2010 as an assistant. Since I was a child, I've had a passion for orthodontics. I had braces myself and I've been hooked ever since. Working with Dr. Katz has been a GREAT experience. The SureSmile technology that we offer to get patients out of treatment faster is astonishing. I love watching our patients walk out of the office with a smile on their face.

When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful husband TJ. We have no children (YET) but we have two great pets, a dog named Buddy and a cat named Munka. 

Brittany

Hey there! I am one of Dr. Katz’s assistants and I have the pleasure of helping you transform your smile. I started my career in orthodontics in 2015 and I love it! Working with Dr. Katz and the team is awesome. We all have a great time at work and treat each other like family. The best part of my job is not only seeing new smiles from patients, but also witnessing their confidence and self-esteem improve while going through treatment. I also love the SureSmile technology that we offer too; it's a great treatment approach that is sure to have patients in braces for less time! 

A little about me: I am the oldest of four girls and I married my college sweetheart Cisco in 2015. We are both alumni of Georgia Southern University. #GoEagles #HailSouthern! My favorite pastime is (drum roll)... sleeping! But when I'm not getting my beauty rest, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching movies, playing my guitar, and finding new spots to get my grub on!
