New Patient Coordinator
As the New Patient Coordinator, I enjoy being the first contact with patients and welcoming them to our practice! I love the fun and positive environment at Honey Orthodontics. I grew up in Gurnee and have lived here with my husband Dave, and our two sons for many years. I stay busy in my free time hanging out with family, walking our dogs, working out with friends, and reading.
Treatment Coordinator (Director of First Impressions)
My award-winning smile came from this very office, which makes it very easy for me to welcome new patients and make them feel right at home! I really enjoy giving new patients a tour of our state of the art office. I will take diagnostic photos and digital x-rays that will assist the doctor in making a thorough diagnosis of any orthodontic conditions present. We will discuss all treatment options, go over insurance and make sure all of your questions are answered. My favorite part of my being on this team is watching how braces build confidence and self-esteem. It makes me so happy to be able to be part of a team that makes smiles that last a lifetime! When I am not at the office I love to spend time with my precious little girl, biking, and doing anything outdoors.
Financial | Insurance Coordinator
As the financial and insurance coordinator, most of my duties are behind the scenes handling the insurance and financial aspects of patient accounts. Although you may not see me at your regular appointments, I am always happy to answer any questions regarding your account, insurance benefits, or discuss payment arrangements. I truly enjoy coming to work each day, and appreciate being a part of this enthusiastic, dedicated, and fun team. I love seeing the final results of patients that have completed treatment, and the confident smiles they always leave with. I have been married for ten years, have three beautiful children and one puppy we adopted. In our free time, we love to go camping, boating and taking care of our backyard chickens!
My name is Tracey. I am the clinical coordinator for Honey Orthodontics. My goal is to make sure each patient is seen in a timely manner, as well as assisting the doctor and other members in completing the treatment required. I also strive to maintain and order prescribed appliances, equipment and other clinical supplies essential to maintaining our quality of treatment. Orthodontics has been my lifetime career. I have been fortunate to enjoy being a member of this extraordinary team for 21 years. I have an Associate’s Degree in Dental Laboratory Technology, concentrating in Orthodontics. Finding my niche in the Orthodontic Profession has been challenging and rewarding. My goals are to help our patients achieve and maintain a wonderful healthy smile, as well as strive to improve and contribute to the success of Honey Orthodontics. In my free time I enjoy, spending time with my sons, daughter-in-laws, and grandsons, and other family and friends. I enjoy volunteering at my church, playing volleyball, being outside, and watching football. Go Pack Go!!!
As one of the newest member of the Honey Orthodontics team, I am so excited to start my orthodontic career at this practice. I grew up in Gurnee, and I am thrilled to be back working in the area. I graduated dental assisting school from Gateway Technical College, in Kenosha, in 2014. I knew all along during school that I wanted to go into orthodontics once I graduated. I love coming to work and knowing that I am helping patients get their perfect smile. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 24 years, and we have 2 kids and 4 fur babies. I have met so many great families, and I can’t wait to meet many more. When I am not working, I like to read, garden and watch reality TV shows – my guilty pleasure!
Hi, I’m Susan. As the scheduling coordinator, I’m the person whose voice you’ll most likely hear when you call to make an appointment, or see when you first walk into our office. I believe in the power of kindness and respect and this guides me as I connect with our patients. I love being part of the team at Honey Orthodontics because we treat everyone as family, and we get such joy out of getting to know our patients and their families and watching their beautiful smiles become a reality. Speaking of family, I’ve been married to my husband Roger for over 25 years and we have an incredible son and daughter, who we raised here in Gurnee. In my free time, I enjoy long talks with my very wise parents, slow walks, cooking, and taking the time to appreciate the little things in life.
While I’m the newest member to the Honey Orthodontics team, I am no stranger to this practice. Before I worked for Dr. Honey, I was a patient at the age of 8 yrs old. I have this very practice to thank for my smile that I love. I grew up in Gurnee and I went to WTHS, so I’m pretty familiar with this area. I even got to work for Dr. Honey before I moved to Los Angeles, and 13 years later she had me back on the team! I’ve learned so much from Dr. Honey and I enjoy the work we do here. As much as we love placing Invisalign and putting braces on…I personally love taking them off and being a part of the journey to that beautiful new smile. It’s such a special moment to get to share with our patients when they realize the time, money, and effort was all worth it, and they leave here with a new level of confidence that maybe wasn’t there before. I’m so lucky to get to work with such a rockstar group of women who have the same goal and make this job so much fun. In my free time, I enjoy singing and playing my guitar-though I still do that while working too. I love being with my family and friends and my cat, Judy Arlene.
I began working at Honey Orthodontics in 2021 after almost 7 years of being a hair stylist. It was time for a career change, and it was definitely worth it! I have always had interest in the medical/dental field, so the switch was meant to be. I have learned all I knew from in office training and from working with the best team members! Working for Dr. Honey has truly been more that I could have asked for! I enjoy coming to work every day knowing that I am helping patients achieve their perfect smiles! I have met so many wonderful patients and families and can’t wait to meet many more! I have lived in the area my whole life. I have been with my boyfriend for almost 4 years and look forward to many more years! I enjoy spending time with loved ones, traveling to warm places, and going out to eat, especially for sushi, and love to bake yummy treats. I love Star Wars, drama TV shows, and Disney!
