Sharon

Orthodontic Assistant

I am here to help with all aspects of patient care, from braces placement, wire changes, impressions, and retainer checks, in addition to assisting the front office with scheduling and insurance. I love it all, and my days are never boring. I like seeing each patient become more confident as their smile improves. Since joining this office in 1996, my team members have become my good friends, which makes for a happy work environment.
My husband’s name is Mike and we have three children. Michael lives in Denver, Brad is in China, and Michele lives in New York.

Gigi

Orthodontic Assistant

I have been working in the dental field for over 5 years.  I handle all aspects of patient care, including preparation for braces, wire changes, impressions and retainer checks.  I love working with my patients and getting to know them on a personal level.  Working with Dr. Madere and all of my co-workers is not just a job, it's a family!

I have been married for 18 years to my best friend, Kenny.  We have a 16 year old daughter and a 14 year old son, as well as  a 5 year old fur baby named Scout.  I love spending my time out doors and working in my garden.  My favorite thing to do is watch my kids play basketball for thier school. 

Cheri

Receptionist

For over 12 years, I’ve been the first person to greet patients when they come into the office, and I’ve always done it with a smile! I’m here to answer the phones, alert the clinic to each patient’s arrival, schedule appointments, and collect payments. It is also my goal to make patients feel as comfortable as possible while they’re in our office. Our patients are wonderful, and I’ve made some lifelong friends while working here.
I’m married to my best friend, Mike, and have two daughters, one step son, one son-in-law, and one amazing granddaughter, Claire Olivia. I love to travel and spend time with family and friends.

Ellen

Accounting/Bookkeeping

I am here to make sure all the numbers are in order, including insurance coordination and accounts payable and receivable. Even though I don’t work in the clinical area of the office, I still get to interact with patients and see as their beautiful smiles develop as the months pass. Ours is an office full of wonderful, kind people. We truly enjoy each other as coworkers and as friends.
I have been married to my husband, Jeff, for 33 years, and we have three wonderful sons. We enjoy traveling and spending time with friends and family.


Jen 

Orthodontic Assistant

I am a former patient and was blessed to join Dr. Madere's team as an assistant.  I truly enjoy my job and look forward to work each day.  It is important to me that all of our patients feel relaxed and comfortable from their very first visit.  My favorite part of my job is getting to know our patients and their families on their journey to a beautiful smile. 

I am the Mom of two amazing daughters, Jade and Sienna.  I grew up in the mountains of West Virgina.  In my spare time, I love to get out and enjoy the outdoors as much as possible.
