Jodie – Chairside Assistant
Hi, my name is Jodie and I am from Long Beach CA. I had braces when I was in high school. Orthodontics looked like so much fun that I decided to work for my orthodontist and I have been a technician for over 20 years now. I love meeting new patient and help creating beautiful smiles.
When I’m not helping Dr. Alpan create beautiful smiles, I am at home with my husband and our 2 kids (Rylee 5 & Grant 11). We love to ride bikes and go fishing. I love to cook but I also LOVE room service. I can’t wait to build a new friendship with all my patients.
