Brittany

Brittany

Orthodontic Technician, Clinical Coordinator

I love building relationships with our patients, sharing in their lives as they work toward a beautiful smile. Dr. Young and my teammates are like family to me: we care about each other and we genuinely care about patients' comfort and happiness. It's a wonderful experience to be part of the Young Orthodontics team, where we bring smiles to our patients! I work chairside, in the clinic, helping my team and supporting patients as they achieve their best possible smile.

Outside of the office, I'm always on the go. I have a house full of boys: my husband Zach, our son Wyatt, and our dog, Milo, so in my spare time I'm playing baseball, fishing, and chasing Wyatt around! We love family vacations, working out at the YMCA, and football season.

Orthodontic Technician, Insurance Coordinator

I love becoming friends with our patients. It's rewarding to see how each person changes and grows during treatment. I love when they start sharing their smile with confidence! My teammates and Dr. Young are a fun group. I think of them like family, as we're here for each other and for our patients. Clinically, I work chairside, assisting Dr. Young with procedures. I also work in the front office, handling all of the in-office insurance matters.

I have two wild boys, named Liam and Landon; a Labradoodle named Jade; and two Bengal cats, Keaira and Marley. Other than being a mommy of two very active boys, I enjoy running, working out at the Y, and DIY projects, especially refinishing furniture.

It's a blessing to have the opportunity to work with him, and our amazing team, to create beautiful smiles!

Derrick and I have four children: Olivia, Katelyn, Dylan, and Carter. I enjoy spending my free time with my family. We love vacationing, playing sports, and being outside whenever possible.

Treatment Coordinator, Orthodontic Technician

I love interacting with patients and their families. I've found I can find something in common with just about everyone, and the relaxed atmosphere at Young Orthodontics allows me to connect with patients. I assist new patients with their initial exam, work in the clinic, and take care of marketing for the practice. I love helping to provide an informative, supportive, and fun environment for everyone who comes here.

My husband Ron and I have three children: Whitney, Tori, and Tyler. Ron and I like to spend time with our kids, camping and attending their sporting events. I also like shopping, going to the movies, and taking beach vacations whenever possible!
