Our doctors and team members celebrate every step of each patient’s progress, supporting and encouraging them as they achieve a smile they love!
New Patient and Insurance Coordinator
I really enjoy working with people to improve their smiles. Everyone has different needs and goals and, due to the individualized care we offer, finishes with their best smile ... and has a great treatment experience, too!
I meet with new patients and families, explain the orthodontic process, and assist with the initial exam. I also review treatment and financial options, including insurance, and answer everyone’s questions. In addition, I troubleshoot insurance matters, handle accounts payable and receivable, and oversee day-to-day operations within the business office. I’ve worked with Dr. Johnson and our team since 1999. We are supportive and caring of each other and our patients!
I’m a Florida native, born and raised in Flagler County. My husband and I have been married for more than 35 years and have two grown children and four grandchildren. When I’m not spoiling them, I enjoy the beach, fishing, and being with extended family.
I am passionate about helping Dr. Johnson improve our patients' confidence by giving them a beautiful and healthy smile through high-quality orthodontic care!
Before I became an employee, my daughter was a patient here. The atmosphere at Johnson Orthodontics is truly unmatched and I was very excited when an opportunity arose for me to join this wonderful team. I started my dental career as a dental assistant in 1990. After graduating from the University of Detroit Mercy, I worked as a dental hygienist until moving to Florida in 2005.
I have been married for 25 years and have 3 children. I am active in the youth ministry at my church and enjoy spending time with my family, biking, kayaking, reading, and relaxing at the beach.
I enjoy meeting our lovely patients and being able to learn something new every day, both from our patients and this team. I love the people I work with and being part of a fun and uplifting group. I wake up every morning excited to go to work. I know you will feel that same excitement once you meet us: we’re here to help you achieve your best smile and we’ll have you smiling and laughing at every visit!
I’m new to orthodontics and to the Orthodontic Specialists of Palm Coast team, having started here in 2021. I assist the doctors chairside with procedures and in the exam room, provide patient education and support, and sterilize instruments.
I love making people smile and bring a positive attitude with me wherever I go and whatever I’m doing. I love animals – my favorite is the elephant. While I can’t have an elephant as a pet, I do have an orange tabby cat, named Kane.
I like interacting with and getting to know our patients. It’s enjoyable to see a person change during treatment and I love celebrating their beautiful new smiles! That’s true of everyone on our team: we’re all vested in providing you with the best experience and the most amazing new smile!
I started my career in 2001 and graduated from MCC in New York as a Licensed Orthodontic Assistant. In 2020 I was welcomed to Orthodontic Specialists of Palm Coast and love it here. In addition to assisting the doctor's chairside, I provide patient care and education, sterilize instruments, and so much more.
Away from the office I enjoy going to the beach, hanging out with my husband, and playing with my kitten, Angel: she is the sweetest!
I began my career in 2002 and spent seven years as a dental assistant before transitioning to the front office in an administrative position. I greet patients when they arrive, and work with the team and our patients to achieve the smile they will love. I feel so fortunate to work with this team! Everyone helps each other to achieve our goals and has fun while doing it!
I have two children—a daughter and a son. We are a big football family and I enjoy volunteering for the North Flagler Wildcats tackle football team in my free time.
I have worked for Dr. Blankenship for several years as an office manager and am currently the office coordinator. I organize our staff, doctors, and patients for a seamless experience and ensure all aspects of the office are aligned and functioning well.
I love the interaction of the patients and seeing the results of a well-planned treatment. The joy we get to see on patients’ faces at the end of treatment is remarkable. Everyone on our team is highly skilled, experienced, and truly loves what they do.
I have five children, only one of whom remains at home and is in high school. I am married and we reside in Palm Coast. I love being an active part of the city and enjoy living here.
Front Office Assistant
I have worked in the front and back office here at Orthodontic Specialists of Palm Coast for the last few years. My background also includes a degree and licensed certification as an aesthetician. I enjoy all aspects of my patients and taking care of them. I love the medical field and the unique interactions I get to have with people every day.
I am a sibling of four and have an amazing German shepherd as my companion. I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family. I was a softball player through college and now enjoy helping my little brother become a better baseball player! It’s exciting to watch him grow and develop as a person and an athlete.
Front Office & Treatment Coordinator
I work alongside Dr. Blankenship and our team to ensure the patient flow in the office is organized and effective. I also assist our patients in choosing a finance plan that accommodates their situation and makes the process and enjoyable one.
The best part of my job is interacting with our patients and their families. The joy I get from the helping everyone keeps my energy level high. I always have a smile and am very positive!
I am originally from Wisconsin and have a background in the hotel and real estate industry. I am new to the Palm Coast area and love it! I am meeting great people all the time and enjoy what Palm Coast has to offer.
