Meet the team

IN ADDITION TO PROVIDING DEDICATION, KNOWLEDGE, AND UNIQUE TALENTS, EACH VALUED MEMBER OF OUR TEAM UNDERSTANDS THAT OUR PATIENTS ARE ALL INDIVIDUALS WHO DESERVE KINDNESS AND RESPECT.

Jeanette

Treatment Coordinator

Jeanette

Jeanette is the Treatment & Marketing Coordinator at White Ortho and utilizes her Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Marketing to help ensure that our patients have great experiences throughout their treatment here. She currently lives in Saginaw with her three children and is also a family photographer (you can check out her small business online at Purple Linen Photography). She enjoys nature, travel, reading to her children, writing, and putting together impressive charcuterie boards.

Kaitlin

Receptionist & Clinical Assistant

Kaitlin

Kaitlin is formerly from the Thumb area, now residing in Freeland, MI. She has four years of experience in the dental field– as a receptionist, a dental assistant, and a records technician. She loves orthodontics (especially assisting with patient adjustments) but has also proved herself an indispensable asset at the front desk, helping our patients with scheduling, payments, and demystifying insurance. Kaitlin enjoys spending time with family and friends, working on household projects, and traveling with her husband and her Goldendoodles, Libby and Camper.

Teresa

Clinical Assistant

Teresa

Teresa graduated from Delta College from the Dental Assisting Program in 1988 and earned an Associate’s Degree to become a Certified Dental Assistant. She is a member of the American Dental Assistants Association. With the longest tenure at this practice (over 29 years!), she has helped many of our patients achieve gorgeous smiles! Teresa is married with two daughters and lives in Freeland, where she prioritizes a healthy and active lifestyle (with preference to the great outdoors). Around here, she’s also responsible for the seasonal office decorating…and we happen to love the spontaneous pranks she pulls on Dr. White!

Amber

Clinical Assistant

Amber

Amber loves watching a patient’s smile graduate from hidden to confident. She has an Associate’s Degree in Dental Assisting from Delta College and has worked in the orthodontic field for 12 years–the previous 9 years have been with Dr. Adams and Dr. White. She’s a world-traveler, enjoys time with her husband and teenagers, and loves her three dogs (the cat is tolerated). Other hobbies include reading, biking, and kickboxing. Her conversation skills are an asset to this practice, and she can personally relate to the orthodontic process since she recently finished treatment as an adult (and loves her new smile, obviously).

Will

Digital Lab & 3D Printing Technician

Will

Will is studying pre-dental biology at Saginaw Valley State University. He graduated from Carrollton High School where he was involved in Student Council and athletics (he was captain and quarterback of his varsity football team). He enjoys community and takes pride in his academic endeavors. He’s our 3D printer expert, spending many afternoons in our laboratory fabricating retainers and aligners for our patients. His approachable, friendly personality, forward-thinking mentality, and can-do attitude benefit White Orthodontics immensely.

Karlie

Chief Operating Officer

Karlie

After earning a graduate degree (triple-majoring in advertising, marketing, and management), Karlie obtained a Master of Business Administration at Northwood University. She was also a collegiate basketball star at Northwood, playing defensive first team all-conference during both junior and senior years. Karlie and Dr. White have been married since 2012 and now have four young children together. She’s a busy mom but still helps run the business!
