Jennifer F. – Office Manager
I enjoy having the opportunity to help others achieve life-changing treatment. Those finished, radiant smiles can’t be beaten! Dr. Severt and Dr. Jacox are both amazing people and orthodontists and I love coming to work with this wonderful team every day. I enjoy working as part of a strong team, supporting Dr. Severt and Dr. Jacox as they create beautiful smiles. Everyone here is focused on providing excellent customer service; we support and encourage each other as we help our patients achieve amazing smiles!
I have been with Dr. Severt since she first bought the practice in 2000. In fact, I was the first person she hired after purchasing the practice. I handle the day-to-day operations of the practice, allowing Dr. Severt and Dr. Jacox to focus on patient care. By ensuring we’re organized and prepared, I help the day flow smoothly, so patient visits go off without a hitch. In addition, I also handle the business financial aspects of the office including accounts payables and receivables.
