Having worked alongside Dr. Whitehead for the past 21 years, Suzanne has had the opportunity to see a countless number of lives transformed through orthodontic treatment. She and her two children have all gone through treatment with Dr. Whitehead and are constantly getting compliments on their beautiful and confident smiles. Suzanne absolutely loves working with children, teens, and adults and will recommend hot pink rubber bands whenever she gets the chance. Outside of the office she loves spending time with her wonderful children, Lexi and Zac.
Kerri absolutely loved having braces as a child, and her love for teeth has been a constant throughout her life, so joining the team at Whitehead Orthodontics in April of 2013 as an orthodontic assistant just seemed to make sense. The thought of helping patients of all ages gain confidence through gaining a beautiful smile is what drew her to working in orthodontics, and is what continually keeps her in love with working in the field. When she is away from the office, Kerri enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband of 18 years, Nathan, and her three children, Rylie, Landon and Owen. Their family also includes a cocker spaniel named Scout, and 2 cats named Clover and Meadow.
From an early age, Laura found the world of teeth to be fascinating and found that orthodontics has a positive and fun atmosphere that many areas of the dental field didn’t have. This fascination lead her to join the Whitehead Orthodontics team in early 2015. The excitement that she sees on each patients face as their smile improves and the opportunity she has to be involved in that life changing process are what she loves the most about being an orthodontic assistant. When she is not in the office, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Jacob, their dog, Copper, and two cats, Loki and Zero.
Linda joined the Whitehead Orthodontics team in 2013 after her two children both had their smiles transformed by Dr. Whitehead and her team. Having been a parent of a patient, and a patient herself, she saw the value in working with a team that cares not only for their patients, but for the patients’ family and their experience. As one of the first faces you see when you walk into the office, she is able to develop meaningful relationships with patients and families alike. Linda and her husband Geoff have two children, Melissa who is an Auburn University student, and Matthew who lives in Helena with his wife Kelsey. In her time away from the office she enjoys running, biking and spending time with family and friends at the lake.
Teri Lynn joined the Whitehead Orthodontics team in 2013 after having dedicated 22 years to being a full time mom. Her nurturing spirit and love for developing relationships make for a friendly and welcoming face whenever you walk through our door and add to the caring orthodontic experience that patients and their families receive. Teri Lynn and her husband of 28 years, David, have two children, Trent, who is married to Helen, and Chelsey. They are also very excited to welcome their first grandchild in November. In her time outside of the office she enjoys walking, reading and spending time outdoors.
