Meet Our Orthodontic Team
I currently live in Vernon, CT, with my husband, my two beautiful daughters, and my two dogs, Mia and Molly. My daughter, Alana, is graduating from nursing school in 2020, and my other daughter, Jordyn, is graduating from high school in 2021.
I chose orthodontics because I found the whole process utterly fascinating. I enjoy watching the progress of each patient and love seeing the results they achieve. When I’m in the office, I thrive when working with patients, their families, my coworkers, and, of course, Brady. I love it all!
I believe every day should be started with a positive attitude, after all, smiles are contagious!
Outside of the Office:
I spend a lot of hours cheering on the sidelines for Jordyn since she plays three different sports. I like to craft, play word games, and snuggle with my dogs.
“Humble and Kind” by Tim McGraw would be the theme song to my life!
I currently live in Vernon, CT, with my husband and two children.
I chose orthodontics because one of the first things most people notice about another person is their smile. I wanted to be a part of a team who help people gain confidence through a perfect smile.
I attended Porter and Chester Institute and received the honor of being named the Student Ambassador in the dental program while maintaining a 4.0 GPA. I hold certifications for CPR, Infection Control, and Radiation Health & Safety. I like to continually test my knowledge, guessing what Dr. Griffin’sLearn more about our dentist next step will be in each patient’s treatment.
Outside of the Office:
I enjoy visiting Cape Cod, spending time with family, and cake decorating.
I was a patient here before I became one of Dr. Griffin’s assistants.
I am a mini Australian Labradoodle who enjoys cuddling, long walks, and sneaking table food from my brothers.
I have a deep love for people. At the office, I like seeing old friends, and meeting new ones every day. I love caring for others and making everyone around me happy.
Outside of the office:
I enjoy naps, hanging out with my family, and hatching schemes resulting in bacon consumption.
Bucket list item:
To eat bacon every day after being at my favorite place – my mom’s office.
Did I mention my love of bacon?
The staff is always friendly and upbeat. Dr. Griffin really cares about her patients and has been wonderful. I love that she called the nights my kids got their braces to make sure they were ok and had no problems. Truly fantastic office staff and I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.
