Meet the Team

Jill

Team Leader and Treatment Coordinator

I love being part of Sheehan Orthodontics, where I’m able to make patients feel comfortable, informed, and excited about treatment. Seeing people’s finished smiles, and how happy they are, makes my day!

I’ve been with the practice for 25 years, and enjoy meeting new patients and families at their consultation: explaining their treatment plan, and answering questions. I especially love working with kids and talking with other moms! I have total confidence in Dr. Sheehan and our staff: they’re great people who provide great care!

My husband Jim and I have been married for 25 years. We have two adult daughters, Kayla and Lindsay, and two dogs, Baylee and Daisy. I love going to the beach, sitting around the pool, and watching football (we’re a Steeler/Redskin household!). Of course, time with family and friends is my top priority.

Melissa

Team Leader and Financial Manager

I really enjoy interacting with our patients and families: getting to know them and being part of their Sheehan Orthodontic experience as they achieve a life-changing smile! I started in the field — and with this practice — in 2010. It’s the best place!

I handle a range of duties, including accounts receivable and payable, along with payroll, staff management, and schedule coordinating.

I’ve been married for 30 years; we have three children, two in college and one who got married this year. Spring and summer are my favorite seasons, I love spending time with family and friends, and enjoy every vacation we take!

Leesa 

Insurance Coordinator

It’s a great feeling to see the relief on patients’ and their parents’ faces when we’re able to maximize their insurance benefits. I joined the Sheehan Orthodontics family in 2015 and love every minute here. It’s such a positive environment, where we create lasting and beautiful smiles!

I verify insurance benefits, submit claims, track insurance payments, and advocate on our patients’ behalf with insurance companies. Dr. Sheehan and my coworkers are professionals who are also patient-centered and do everything possible to keep patients comfortable and excited about getting a new smile!

My husband Rob and I have three kids — Christian, Sydney, and Connor — as well as our dog Chewie, and our cat Lyla. They all keep me hopping! In what spare time I can find, I enjoy catching home décor sales and decorating our house.

Toni 

Front Desk Coordinator

I am happy to be part of such a dynamic team here at Sheehan Orthodontics! Greeting patients and families, checking patients in and out, coordinating the schedule and answering phones are only a few of my many duties. The part I most enjoy is the interaction with our patients and parents throughout my day.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my family, friends and walking my dog Dasher. I look forward to traveling and the out doors!

Gaby

Certified Orthodontic Assistant

I like getting to know our patients and seeing how they become happier and more confident with a new smile! I attended Southern Maryland Dental Society for my certifications, started in the field in 2011, and joined the Sheehan Orthodontics family in 2016.

Working in the back, I seat patients, prepare them for their procedure, and talk about what will happen during their visit. I love how everyone at the office feels like a warm family and how we have fun talking and laughing with our patients, their families, and each other.

My spare time is spent with my dog and my family, and I try to find time to travel with friends when possible. My favorite hobby? I love working on and racing cars!

Heather

Certified Orthodontic Assistant

I love our patients and helping create smiles that they will love for life! My career started over 20 years ago in 1997. I am a certified orthodontic assistant and a dental radiation technician. I found my professional home here at Sheehan Orthodontics in 2005.

I greet patients and bring them to their chair, make sure they’re comfortable, and explain what will happen. Working chairside, I assist Dr. Sheehan with procedures, and write patient charts. Dr. Sheehan always makes people, whether staff or patients and parents, feel like family!

I’ve been married for ten years to my amazing husband Craig and have two kids, Chris and Scarlett. I enjoy billiards, relaxing at the beach, and cooking in my Instant Pot®

Linda

Certified Orthodontic Assistant

I love being part of a great team that helps our patients achieve beautiful smiles! I joined Sheehan Orthodontics in 2016, having started in the field in 2008. I have my orthodontic assistant and X-ray certifications.

My days are spent in the back: seating patients, explaining what we’ll be doing, and assisting Dr. Sheehan. I and the rest of our team make sure our patients and parents are informed and happy. Our office feels like a big, warm family and our patients are a big part of that.

Wendell

Sterilization Technician

I enjoy being part of Sheehan Orthodontics. I joined the team in 2017 and love seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they’re done with a procedure and have a healthier, more attractive smile.

I’m in charge of sterilizing and maintaining our equipment, and I assist my coworkers when they need a hand. It’s a good feeling to come to work with friendly and kind people who genuinely care about our patients.

Outside of work, I spend a lot of time studying. I’m a college student pursuing a degree in microbiology. Long-term, I plan on attending medical school and hope to graduate with an MD and a Ph.D.
