Treatment Coordinator
Terri**Voted Most Dynamic
I have worked with our team since 1998. I started working in the lab making appliances, but quickly transitioned into working with patients as an orthodontic technician for the next 15 years. I am now the treatment coordinator, greeting new patients and getting them started on this fantastic journey called “BRACES"!!! Dr. Z is so enthusiastic about what he does that it is a treat to work alongside him creating new smiles and building confidences!  

I am an Air Force “brat" that settled in Colorado Springs in 1985. I am married and we have two wonderful children that we spend a lot of time just trying to keep up with their busy schedules. When I do get downtime, I like to spend it reading a good book! I have shared many experiences here, seen the importance of great teamwork, made lasting friendships, did some “time" in braces (So I can empathize!), and even learned how to downhill ski. I LOVE my job and enjoy watching our families grow up and the transformations our patients make here.

Financial Coordinator

Nicki**Voted Scary Good Memory
I worked in the bookkeeping/accounting field for almost 10 years before getting the opportunity to work for Dr. Z Orthodontics in 2004. I work closely with your insurance company to help insure that your maximum benefits are received. I enjoy getting to know our patients and working with our amazing team. I feel pride in the high level of care and skill Dr. Z has with every patient. One of the best parts of any day is the laughter we share!

I was born and raised in the Black Hills area of South Dakota. This is where I met my husband and we moved to his hometown of Colorado Springs. We lived in Washington State for about six years before having to return to Colorado for our family and the sunshine! I have two wonderful children, Brittany and Dominic. I love spending my free time with my family and friends.

Office Coordinator

Natasha**Voted Most Adaptable
I am excited to be a part of Dr. Z's team! I love the family atmosphere amongst the office, and all the team work makes it an enjoyable working environment. I have been a scheduling coordinator in orthodontics for several years and I really enjoy seeing smiles transform, as well as getting to know our patients and their families!

I grew up in Colorado Springs and enjoy the beauty the state has to offer year round. I enjoy doing anything active: hiking, yoga, skiing, biking, and swimming. I have a real love for French culture and am in the process of becoming fluent in French. Most importantly I have a daughter named Chloe who I spend the majority of my time with; she is the light of my life!

Orthodontic Technician

Mary Ann**Voted Most Eco-Friendly
I have worked in the orthodontic field for 30 years, prior to that I worked in general dentistry for 7 years. I have been part of this amazing team since 1999. I love that we have a great office with dedicated staff members.

I grew up in southwest Kansas and then my husband and I moved to Colorado Springs in 1984. We have two boys; the oldest is stationed at Vandenberg AFB in California. He and his wife blessed us with our first grandchild in 2013. The youngest is a senior at the Air Force Academy. My enjoyment comes from watching AFA soccer and playing with my grandson.

Orthodontic Techician

Megan**Voted Most Easy Going
I have an associate degree in general science, and received my dental assisting certificate. I also pursued additional training as an expanded duty dental assistant. I was blessed to become part of this amazing team in 2009 after completing my internship with the office. I enjoy working in orthodontics and love being involved in such a fun environment.

My husband and I were born and raised in Colorado Springs, and we love being surrounded by the mountains. We have a wonderful son who is such a joy in our life! As a family, we love doing anything that involves being outdoors. My favorite hobbies are camping, hiking, kayaking, and snowboarding. I am thrilled that my son now loves all of these hobbies.

Orthodontic Technician

Shelby**Voted Most Trendy
I am happy to announce that I am the newest addition to Dr. Z's team. When I had braces, I loved the transformation so much that I knew that is what I wanted to do. There is nothing better than seeing our patients walk away with outstanding smiles.

I moved to Colorado in 2004 from California and I love being outdoors. I received my dental assisting certificate from Pikes Peak Community College. I feel blessed to have completed my internship with Dr. Z before becoming a permanent team member. I enjoy getting to work with an enthusiastic and dedicated team every day.

Orthodontic Technician

Richelle**Voted Office Comedian & Singer
General dentistry is where I started, but orthodontics caught my interest quickly! Being a part of the amazing transition you get to see day to day is truly rewarding! Luckily, the military brought my family back to Colorado where I was given this opportunity to work with Dr. Z and his fabulous ortho team!

My husband has been in the Military since 2010. We have two wonderful children. Our son, Aiden, loves being a big brother to his sister, Elliott. In our free time you can find us exploring the sites in Colorado, on the lake with friends, at the local race track, or at home with our family! Arizona is where we grew up, but Colorado is where we have chosen to raise our family.
