I am very happy to have joined the team at Gorczyca Orthodontics as the Patient Coordinator at the front desk.

I love being able to give our patients a beautiful new smile. This is lifechaning and I can truly say, it almost makes me cry! I can't think of any service more rewarding.

Smiles change lives beyond the appearnace and function of straight teeth. I have worked in the orthodontic profession from age 27. What I love most about Gorczyca Orthodontics is our welcoming and helpful office culture. Work is fun when you're part of a happy team. I always wanted to be an orthodontic assistant so I guess you could say, I'm living my dream!
