The ACP Orthodontics Team is composed of well-trained and skilled individuals who are dedicated to patient care and their profession. They are attentive, accommodating, and personable, embodying the idea that if one loves what one does, it doesn’t feel like work. They truly love changing lives — one person and one smile at a time!
Our Clinical Associates
Working in our treatment areas and operatories, our clinical associates keep the space sterilized, organized, and ready for patients. They bring in and seat patients, prepare them for their appointment, and assist Dr. Conny with various procedures. They also provide direct patient care, under the doctor’s direction and supervision, and offer patients guidance on home care and dental hygiene during treatment.
In addition to their technical abilities, each of our clinical associates is warm and friendly. They enjoy getting to know our patients personally, and treasure the relationships that develop during treatment. For them, helping their friends achieve life-changing smiles, and seeing each person gain confidence as their teeth straighten, is a highlight of their work!
