Adriana

Adriana

Orthodontic Assistant

I love being a part of this amazing team. I have assisted Dr. Al for a long time and I make sure that he has everything he needs for every procedure. My favorite appointments are the ones for removal of braces because it's very exciting to see everyone's beautiful smiles.

I’m a parent of two amazing young women that love to shop and go to the movies.

Alex

Alex

New Patient Coordinator

Although I joined the Tysons West Ortho team in 2017, I have been working with Dr. Al for over 5 years in orthodontics. Having started as a Records Technician, I now walk with patients every step of the way through the consultation process as his Treatment Coordinator. This has been my favorite position so far, because it allows me to get the know our patients and help them feel their dream smile can be achieved.

When I'm not thinking about teeth, you'll find me road tripping for days, playing video games or serenading my dog Guinness with a guitar or piano.
