Dawn

Orthodontic Assistant

I began my dental career in 1988 and joined Dr. Duthie’s team in 2013. It’s so much fun to get to know each person we care for, and become friends with patients while we develop their healthy new smile. I love hearing their stories, and all about their adventures and successes in school or in sports. The best part is seeing the beautiful results when the braces are removed!

My family includes three wonderful children and a dog, Frankie. I love shopping and hanging out with my family in my free time.

We have a lot of fun in our office, and I love being a part of it!

I have been married for 20 years, and have two beautiful daughters and two cats. We are very busy with sports and plays during the school year and biking and going on walks in the summer. I enjoy movies, reading, and spending quality time with my family.

Treatment Coordinator

I started in orthodontics more than 55 years ago, but it seems like just yesterday! Since 2013, I’ve worked with patients at Dr. Duthie’s office to get them started with treatment. My goal is to make them happy with their smile. We are all here to make the practice run smoothly and provide excellent treatment and a pleasant experience at Duthie Orthodontics. 

I enjoy traveling to California with my husband, Sam, to see our family, especially our two grandsons, Trevor and Hayden.. I also enjoy gardening and shopping.

Receptionist

I came to Duthie Orthodontics in 2013, and brought with me 12 years of experience. When I come to work each morning, it’s with a smile on my face because I’m looking forward to the interactions I’m going to have throughout the day. I greet patients and their families when they arrive, and I love helping them feel comfortable while they’re here.

One of the best parts of my job is working with my team. I’ve known them for so long that they feel like my second family!

Treatment Coordinator / Office Manager / COA

I began working with Dr. Duthie in 2013 when he opened his own practice. In addition to managerial duties, I am also a certified orthodontic assistant with 30 years of experience. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else but this office! Whether I’m helping a patient start an orthodontic journey or assisting in the removal of braces, everything I do is to make smiles happen!

I have been married for more than 35 years to my husband John. We have two daughters, Jessica and Jill. Jessica is married to our son-in-law, John McNabb, and they have the most adorable little boy named Carter. Jill is engaged to be married to Tim Langdon in October 2019. I LOVE golfing when I can, and working outside in the yard.

I have been in the dental field since 1995 and joined Duthie Orthodontics in 2013. I have many years of experience in general, restorative, surgical, endodontics, and orthodontics. I enjoy creating lasting friendships and trust with patients while helping Dr. Duthie change their smiles, and making them feel better and more confident about themselves. Dr. Duthie is the most understanding, caring, and generous doctor and does amazing work.

My family consists of my son Allston, Shaun and his daughter Haleigh, and our three dogs. In the winter months, I play on multiple dart leagues and compete in several tournaments. In the spring and fall, I play softball and take part in tournaments and fundraising. When I’m not playing sports, I enjoy crafting, building, and repurposing things.

I am nearing the completion of my second decade of working in the orthodontic field, and have spent the past five years with Dr. Duthie. I like seeing the transition that patients go through from when they first enter treatment until the day their braces come off. I enjoy seeing how happy they are with their smile results and knowing I am a part of that wonderful change!

I have been married to my husband for almost 20 years. We have four beautiful daughters, two sons-in-law, and two grandchildren who are wonderful.

Duthie Orthodontics is the best! I’ve spent five of my 20 years in this field here and look forward to coming to work every day. My work allows me to help change the lives of so many people. I ensure that every person who comes through our practice doors, as well as their family, has an excellent orthodontic experience, from start to finish.

I earned my associate’s degree in dental assisting in 2010 and have experience in the fields of periodontics, endodontics, general dentistry, and oral surgery. Orthodontics is by far my favorite! Every day, I get to watch patients’ smile transformations and build lasting friendships with them. I also get to spend a lot of time with our awesome team — my second family!

My husband Tom and I have been married since 2015. We have one child together, Maisy, who just turned a year old. We also have two Brittany Spaniels, Waylan and Hank, who love to go bird hunting. I love to garden and can my harvest. My hobbies consist of knitting, crocheting, and reading when I am not playing with my daughter.

I scan and make retainers and orthodontic appliances. I also fabricate and trim orthodontic models. It’s a pleasure to meet, care for, and become friends with our patients. Every single one of them always has something interesting to share, and I love learning about their lives outside our office.

When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my three children, two grandchildren, dog, and three cats. I am also a volunteer on the Youth Soccer Board. I enjoy traveling with my family and shopping. Sometimes I am known as “Mother Christmas,” since Christmas is my all-time favorite holiday!
