Beaches Orthodontics Staff


Melissa-Beaches-OrthodonticsHi, I’m Melissa, I am the first person you meet when you arrive at Beaches Orthodontics. I am the one who schedules your appointments, verifies your insurance, files your claims promptly and reviews your financial contracts. I have been with Beaches Orthodontics for 24 years, starting with my internship as an assistant and working my way to the front office. I can relate to the patients and parents on both front and back procedures. I feel this is an important part of being able to know how orthodontics works for each patient. I love what I do and it is my passion to be able to really get to know all the parents and patients. To me you are not just another face, but a part of our family. That’s what sets us apart, we really care that you receive the best smile you can achieve and have the best experience, far beyond your expectations.


Debbie-Beaches-OrthodonticsI started in dentistry in 1977. I have worked in General, Pediatrics, T.M.J. and Orthodontic practices. I have always believed that if you change a smile you can change a life. I started with Dr. Carden in 1988 and have had the pleasure of continuing my duties with Dr. Patel. I have worked in several offices but this office continues to hold my heart. We have a family of patients, not just patients. It has been my pleasure working with and getting to know our families. Come in and see why we are different.
