Nina – Financial Coordinator
Originally from Boston, MA we are happy to now have Nina as part of our team, aka our little orthodontic family! Nina currently lives in Jupiter and thoroughly enjoys Florida living.
Nina is no stranger to working hard and being a team player right out of high school. She graduated from Dwyer High School and her first job immediately after graduation resulted with a promotion to a management position. This potential is clearly evident as she works side by side with Dr. King and his team here at Jupiter Orthodontics.
Her favorite recreation is to be in the great outdoors with her beautiful daughters, Samantha and Haley , enjoying time spent with them at the park, the beach and participating in sports they enjoy. It is easy to see that Nina’s favorite people are her family & her beautiful daughters. There is another person that is a friend for life & that is our very own KRISTIN – Treatment Coordinator.
Nina is Dr. King’s Financial Coordinator and she deals with all financial aspects of orthodontic treatment. She has many and diverse duties & is the one who can help you understand your insurance benefits, arrange & process your payments. In other words, Nina makes it easy for you!
Lori – Public Relations Coordinator
I started working for Dr. King in 2002 and really enjoy my job. I am able to arrange many events, contests, guessing games, and parties for our office and our patients, as well as handling Internet marketing and advertising. I also make absolutely sure you know how to find us! Working with this happy and fun group is extremely enjoyable because everyone here really cares about one another. Organizing all the “fun stuff” and then attending events with staff and our patients is very rewarding as we are able to watch them really enjoy themselves.
It is also a privilege to work with Dr. King, who makes it all happen. Work = FUN! Who knew? My entire family owes our beautiful smiles to him.
My amazing husband Mark and I have a son, Taylor, and a daughter, Alissa, as well as a Yorkie Poo named Charlie and a Yorkie, Sofie. I absolutely love working on landscaping and making a small backyard into a garden escape. I have a fairly quick wit which often gets me into trouble but my family and I really enjoy laughter. Our family has logged a lot of hours filled with family fun and laughter and I personally like to make people laugh, whether they want to or not!
Ashley – Clinic Coordinator
In the year 2000, I joined “Team King” and I know you’re going to love our team; it’s like having a second family for me! Among the many things I do, I always enjoy welcoming new patients. I also coordinate financial plans for them and work at the front desk. Much of my time is spent with families on a very personal level while they learn about the treatment process. It feels really good to work together making treatment available and affordable for all families. We are then able to work as a team and have patients become our friends while we get to know them and they get to know us. I am trained in each of the orthodontic positions, so there may be a day that I will answer the phone for you and another when I actually work on your braces!
Dr. King has an unbelievable dedication and passion for what he does and I really believe that is why our team functions so well together.
What can I say about my two beautiful sons, Jaxson and Ryan. They are the center of my world! I used to think I had a LOT of energy until Jaxson showed me what real energy is! With Ryan, well, I just try to keep up. We also love our dog, Shadoe. I love being a mom and spending time watching my boys grow. In our spare time we love to spend time outdoors as a family and enjoy life.
Donna – Chair Side Assistant
Well, howdy! My start in the orthodontic field was in 1980 and I have cross-trained for every position in Dr. King’s office. I assist at chairside, and am currently the clinic leader, organize the clinic and lab, and maintain clinic supplies and order. While working with patients, I will always be joking around; I feel it is my personal goal to make patients feel comfortable and at ease, and maybe even make them laugh a little. They’re all such great kids! I love putting the smile-transforming braces on a patient who is excited about the creation of their new smile. Then I love the moment when the braces come off and we all get to see the happy reaction of each patient.
Dr. King is very innovative with his practice and his treatment for the patients. I love knowing that he has the highest standard for his patients and I have watched him uphold that standard for over 25 years.
I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend Scott and my lovable dog and cuddly cat. I really like working in the yard and enjoying the final result of pretty greenery and flowers around me. It’s nice to sit and enjoy something that I’ve worked really hard to accomplish. I also love camping in the Everglades and have done so on more than one occasion. Ask me about it when you come in and while you are in the chair; I will tell you ALL about it!
Mollie – Chair side Assistant
It was my good fortune to have met this team when I came here for treatment years ago. I was even more fortunate when I was looking for a career and found that there was an opening in a place I already knew and liked! I am the current appointment coordinator but I am also trained as a clinical assistant. It is a good feeling to be able to work many positions and continue learning new things. As chair side assistant I enjoy getting to know all of you as you join our orthodontic family.
I went to the University of Central Florida and got my Bachelor of Science in criminal justice. Next, because I love learning, I went to Dental Assisting Academy, which launched my career in the dental field. I love working out and keeping fit, which fits right in with my love of sports. But I really love traveling with my husband Brett whenever I can and having fun in the sun while fishing! Anything outdoors, especially with my family, is something I’m going to really enjoy, especially going to concerts!
Kristin - Treatment Coordinator
One of Florida’s own, right here in our office! Kristin is originally from Clearwater, Fl & aced high school at Largo High. She enthusiastically continued her education at New England tech and ultimately trained to be a dental assistant. Kristin spent time as an office manager in a dental office where she also assisted. She was adept in all positions because of her cross training and mastery over any task at hand.
When you call the office Kristin will be able to assist you in going over Dr. King’s diagnosis & treatment plan for yourself or your child. She will be able to answer your questions and ensure stress free progress to a beautiful smile. At times she also will be able to assist you with insurance or payment questions you may have. She is cross trained in Dr. King’s office.
Kristin love sports of all kinds. Though these days she spends more time watching as she enjoys raising her son and daughters & supporting them in their sporting events. She is very proud to be a ‘soccer mom’! While she doesn’t burst into song in the office she loves to sing and was part of the Madrigal Singers – acapella performances – & was on the Today Show as well as local TV broadcasts for her performance. She adored it! Now, she and her husband Manny spend their time at the Copacabana dancing to their Latin favorites! Kristin is absolutely loved by everyone here & we know you will feel the same way!
Alannah - Chair side Assistant / Appointment Coordinator
Unbelievable as it is, we have yet another native Floridian among us. Alannah is from Hobe Sound and we had the good fortune to meet her and include her as part of our team. She went to school at Clark advanced Center and rocked the charts with her abilities. She received her Associates Degree at Indian River State College and her goal is to become an orthodontist. She started out immediately after High School graduation working as a cashier while she attended school. She is an enthusiastic and dedicated individual.
As chair side assistant Alannah enjoys getting to know every single patient and she will likely be one of the first people you'll meet when you come to our office. She is one of the reasons all the details are tended to in the office because she is on top of making sure everyone has what they need. She will definately be a large part of the reason your experience here will be wonderful.
Alannah loves to spend time with her family and they enjoy nightly walks when everyone returns home after a long day. She enjoys bike riding, walking on the beach, swimming in the ocean and she loves boating. She also enjoys working with friends & family at Christ Fellowship Church making decorations & painting for church projects.
She absolutely adores the family pets; Hobie, a Golden Doodle and Otis, an Australian Cattle dog. Her dad found Otis on a train coming in from Jacksonville completely starving & in need of a family. That was Otis’ best day ever because he ended up with an amazing family.
Whitney - Chair side Assistant / Appointment Coordinator
Whitney comes to us from Clewiston, FL currently resides in W.P.B. and is remarkably the fifth native Floridian in Dr. King's office! She enjoyed school very much and was home schooled through her high school years. She had an interest in the dental field and went to the Dental Assistants Academy to continue her education in that field.
She came to Dr. King's office for orthodontics and was particularly intrigued with the orthodontic process. This led her to pursue that path and ultimately led her back to Dr. King's office years later. Welcome home Whitney!
Married in 2017 Whitney loves evening walks with her hubby John, who is coincidentally her favorite person! She also enjoys snorkeling, jogging and traveling. A rewarding passion Whitney loves is teaching others about the bible. This she does whenever she can, making time for it in her life and doing this on a volunteer basis for many hours each month. She loves the beach (a true Florida girl) horseback riding, bicycling, Disney of course, shopping, traveling and the absolutely necessary manni / peddi! She's definitely going to fit right in here!
With a deep appreciation for family her favorite people are her parents, sister and her niece and nephew. She takes the time to be with them and spoil them all appropriately.
As an orthodontic assistant you'll see Whitney's smiling face when you arrive for appointments. She works chair side with Dr. King and enjoys every minute of the journey to a new smile with you!
