Say Hello To Our Awesome Orthodontic Assistant, HEATHER!


We recently realized that we’ve probably wrongly assumed that ALL of you—our valued patients—know Heather as well as we do. That’s probably not the case!

So we asked her a few questions to help you all get to know her...

Where are you originally from?

Mt. Airy, MD.

What made you decide to become an orthodontic assistant?

I've always had a passion for making people smile.  And what could be a better job than helping someone create a smile they love!

When you started as an orthodontic assistant was there something funny that happened? Do you dare tell us that story?

I started working as an orthodontic assistant as a senior in high school.

What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?

I love spending time with my family.  We love to go fishing and camping.  I also enjoy playing billiards.



What do you enjoy most about being an orthodontic assistant?

Changing someone's confidence with a smile that they love.

We hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know Heather a little better. Here at Sheehan Orthodontics we feel really fortunate to have her as a member of our awesome team.
