We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.

Melissa

Treatment and Financial Coordinator

I enjoy meeting our new patients and introducing them to the world of orthodontics. I help patients and their parents understand the importance of having healthy, straight teeth. Then I answer their questions about the care process and options. Following a patient’s consultation, I explain what the doctor has recommended, then we discuss the timeline and financial details. It’s a pleasure to help people get a beautiful smile!

My favorite activities outside of work: boating and jet skiing on the Connecticut River.

Carol

Laboratory Technician

I love working in an orthodontic practice where we help people develop beautiful, strong smiles, based on their specific needs. We provide treatment that changes lives, always focusing on personal care and the connections we develop with our patients. I’ve been a dental lab technician for more than 40 years. I work in our onsite lab, fabricating various orthodontic devices that gently shift a patient’s teeth.

My personal life is family focused. I have a daughter, son, and two wonderful grandchildren, along with my dog, Duncan. I’m active in my church and love to knit, crochet, and sew.

Therese

Certified Dental Assistant

The friendships I’ve developed with our wonderful patients, while helping them achieve wonderful smiles, are incredible. I’ve been part of this orthodontic practice since 1975 and have met and become friends with some amazing people. Now I’m meeting some of our original patients’ children and grandchildren! I provide assistance during orthodontic procedures and help patients understand the best way to keep their mouth and teeth healthy.

I’m married, with three beautiful daughters who are also health professionals. My husband Ron and I enjoy visiting Cape Cod and riding our bikes along the scenic trails.

Amy

Certified Dental Assistant

It’s enjoyable to work with people who are excited to be improving their smiles and self-esteem. No matter what their age, each patient changes as they see their smile change, and they become more outgoing and confident. I love being part of making that happen. My days are spent working with our patients, providing assistance and support during their visits and making sure they’re smiling during their time here.

When I’m not working, I enjoy being with my boyfriend and two sons. I love traveling, walking, and watching my sons play sports. Summer weekends at our family cottage are the best!

Jennifer

Laboratory Technician

I enjoy working in an orthodontic office where the doctor and everyone on our team have a lot of compassion for our patients, and share a special bond with each person. I’m one of the laboratory technicians for Dr. Caban. I work in our onsite lab fabricating different types of specialized, customized orthodontic devices that our doctor uses to comfortably move a patient’s teeth into correct alignment.

I’m the mother of two wonderful boys, who keep me on the go. They’re both active in various sports. In my free time, I enjoy hiking and fishing, and have a passion for photography.

Cindy

Certified Dental Assistant

Developing relationships with our patients, their parents, and other family members during their time with us is the best part of my work. I love hearing their stories and learning about their lives and interests. Becoming friends with our patients, while helping straighten their teeth for a more beautiful smile, always makes me smile. I help patients during their visits, providing support, guidance, and advice.

I’m happily married and we enjoy doing many things together. I also love to bake and cook, and try new recipes. Oh, and I’m a bargain shopper who never pays full price for anything!

Anne

Registered Dental Hygienist

Every day at work, and every patient we care for, is different. I love our patients’ diverse personalities and experiences. When they share stories about their lives and hobbies, they’re including me in their world, and that feels good. I help our patients keep their teeth and gums healthy while they’re progressing through orthodontic treatment. This ensures that when the braces are removed, their teeth are not only straight, but healthy and beautiful!

I’m the mom of two wonderful daughters and “Grammy” to three fantastic grandchildren, who I spend as much time with as possible. I enjoy skiing, gardening, and repurposing found items.
