Meet the Team

Janelle

Office Manager and Treatment Coordinator

I am excited to be a part of Teem Orthodontics! I graduated from Iowa State University in 1995 with a degree in mathematics and secondary education. I taught middle school for four years before having my first child and choosing to stay home to raise our family.  After 14 years of “retirement,” I’m back in the working world and excited to help Teem Orthodontics be the best orthodontic office in the area.

I moved to Haymarket, VA in the fall of 2012 from Farmington, MN, a suburb of the Twin Cities. I am married and have three children, Alison, Mackenzie, and Andrew, who keep me on my toes at all times! My girls play soccer and my son plays baseball and football. We spend quite a bit of our free time on the ball fields watching their games and practices and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my time, unless an opportunity arises to attend any NFL game. Go Vikings!


 

Julie

Public Relations and Patient Coordinator

As Dr. Ekoh’s public and patient relations coordinator, I am here to support and grow Teem Orthodontics into the best practice it can be. I am excited to assist our patients have a fun and positive orthodontic experience, all while gaining that beautiful smile they deserve. I began working for Dr. Ekoh in 2011 but first came to know him when I brought my daughters in for orthodontic treatment. I really liked him and appreciated his style with the kids, and his staff was great too. I was thrilled when he asked me to join his team.

Originally from New Jersey, my family and I relocated to Bristow four years ago for my husband’s job. I have been married for 16 years and have two beautiful girls who keep me very busy watching various sports at opposite sides of the county on the weekends. When I have time, I enjoy scrapbooking, jewelry making, cooking, and baking.


 

Dawn

Financial and and Patient Coordinator

I am very excited and thrilled to join Teem Orthodontics! I graduated from the University of New Orleans with a degree in Political Science. I was a retail manager for thirteen years and later moved into office management, which I enjoyed for seven years. After a short break from the workforce, my family relocated to Virginia. I know that my experience in retail will enable me to provide great financial management acumen to Teem Orthodontics.

Originally from Covington, LA (just outside of New Orleans), I moved to Haymarket in July 2013 due to my husband's job. We have two beautiful and very active children, Chloe, and Colin. When we aren't taking our kids to ballet, karate and basketball practice, our family loves to explore the area and hang out with all of our new friends here in Virginia.


 

Cinthya

Orthodontic Assistant

I earned my certification in dental orthodontic assistance from Northern Virginia Community College. I really enjoy getting to know our patients, and love watching the changes in patients as they progress through treatment. It’s extremely exciting to see the beautiful transformation of someone’s smile. Being an orthodontic assistant is a very fun and rewarding job. I admire Dr. Ekoh’s approach to doing braces with modern concepts; I am also one of his patients!

I was born in Ecuador and moved to the United States when I was ten years old. I have a wonderful daughter named Sophia. In my free time I like to watch movies and have a good time with friends and family.


 

Lourdes

Orthodontic Assistant

I was born in California and moved to Virginia in 2010. I have a son, Benjamin, whom I enjoy playing soccer with and spending time with. I graduated from Everest College where I received my Certification in Dental Orthodontic Assisting.

Every day is a new experience for me at TEEM Orthodontics. I enjoy the privilege of all the new things I have the opportunity to learn. I am extremely excited to be part of Dr. Ekoh’s team and look forward to all the transformations we will accomplish. Someday I would like to become a dentist. Putting a smile on someone’s face makes my day!
