Our Team

Thanks for stopping by!

At Russell Orthodontics, our friendly, dedicated and energetic orthodontic team is committed to working with you and your family to create a positive and comfortable experience every time you visit our office. But first, let’s get to know each other.

Jennifer Russell, DDS, MSD

Welcome to our practice! My goal is to create a unique practice environment by taking the time to get to know each patient personally. We are able to do this because we are a smaller, more intimate practice. We think of our patients as part of our family and always treat them with respect and kindness.

Hi there! As a dental receptionist, my duties include scheduling patients, answering phones and insurance processing. I have been in the dental field approximately 20 years. The best part of my job is interacting with patients and experiencing how orthodontics can truly change their esteem for the better. The doctor in our practice is very kind and always has their patients’ best interests in mind! I am a mother of four sons. I enjoy crafts, reading and spending time with friends.
