Orthodontic Assistant and Clinical Supervisor

Working alongside Dr. Shems for the past six years has been wonderful. She always asks our patients about their lives and actually cares about their response. Her approach to orthodontics is conservative, which I think parents really appreciate. It is really easy to feel good about the decisions Dr. Shems makes and proudly stand behind them.

I have two children, Taylor and Nick, and a dog named Vinny. Taylor is a nutrition major at SMCC and works at World Gym. Nick is currently a junior at Boston College and plays baseball for them. I spend my free time with my family and friends and I love the summer in Maine! My favorite activities are being on the lake, waterskiing, and boating.
