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.

I’m an Alamance County native. My husband Kenny and I have two daughters, Hayley and Kenley, and a son, Kendel. I’m a big family person and enjoy every minute I have with my family. I like watching my kids play sports. I also enjoy date nights with my amazing husband. I love going to church with my family and I am honored and humbled to support my husband as he serves as an Elder of our church. God has richly blessed me with a wonderful family, along with a wonderful job and work-family.

I am so happy to play a role in making beautiful smiles! It’s remarkable to see each patient change during treatment and finish with incredible confidence in their appearance. We have an amazing practice, with doctors and a team who do everything possible to keep our patients comfortable and smiling during treatment.

I work in the clinic, assisting Dr. Severt and Dr. Jacox with orthodontic procedures, including placing braces, archwires, retainers, and Invisalign®.

Russell, my husband, and I have been married for more than 35 years. We have 4 beautiful grandchildren! Our son, Rusty, and his wife Emily have two sons, Charlie and Henry. Our daughter Maggie has two children as well: daughter MiaGrace and son McCray. Outside of work, I like reading, cooking, walking, and – best of all – spending time with my family.

Jennifer R. – Clinical Assistant

I attended Alamance County Community College and graduated with a degree in dental assisting in 1991. I worked in an orthodontic/pediatric office prior to joining Dr. Severt’s team in 1997. Working here for the past 20+ years has been a true pleasure. I’ve enjoyed getting to know all of our patients and being a part of improving their smiles, and I feel fortunate to work with such an amazing team.

I spend my days working with patients, helping Dr. Severt bond braces, doing monthly archwire changes, and delivering appliances.

I have been married to my husband Keith for 18 years this March. We have two beautiful girls, Samantha and Lexie. We are very involved with school athletic activities, as well as high school chorus, and traveling with Lexie’s travel softball team. I personally enjoy reading in my spare time.

I enjoy meeting new people and building a relationship with them. It’s a good feeling to be part of someone’s smile story. I’m the proud owner of a Severt Smile, myself, and I’m excited to help others achieve the same!

Dr. Severt is honest, genuine, and positive; she and my coworkers make this the most supportive, happy office!

I assist Dr. Severt and Dr. Jacox chair side with bonding brackets and archwire changes.  I also keep up with the various labs we work with and help create the fun contests for the office. One of my favorite things to do is use the scanner that takes digital pictures of teeth.
