    Hi! My name is April, and I’m a clinical assistant. My duties include assisting Dr. Prentice with placing braces and regular adjustments.

    I love making a positive change in people's lives, and we do that here at Scenic City Orthodontics - one smile at a time!  I enjoy running and walking, and my favorite things to do in Chattanooga are shopping, going downtown and taking in a Lookouts game with my three awesome kids.  One fun fact about me is that I once met Reggie White!

    Kristi

    Clinical Assistant

    Hi, I’m Kristi! As a clinical assistant, my duties include assisting Dr. Prentice with bracket replacement, arch-wire changes, radiographs, and impressions…just to name a few.

    I absolutely love the field of orthodontics! While attending dental-assisting school, I knew - without a doubt - that ortho was exactly what I wanted to do. Our patients are fantastic, and the team members we are blessed to have are not just co-workers, we are truly like family! Not only do I have the privilege in helping produce beautiful smiles, helping to enhance the self-esteem of every patient is completely priceless!  My wonderful husband and I have been married for more than 10 years and have two gorgeous sons, Dakota and Dylan. My favorite things to do in Chattanooga are going downtown with my family (and a stop at Clumpies Ice Cream is a must!), going to the movies, shopping...and I also like a nice, competitive volleyball game with friends and family!

    Lizzy

    Records Coordinator/Fun Ambassador

    Hi, I’m Lizzy, and I am the Records Coordinator/Fun Ambassador! I guide our new patients through their first visit at our office, taking their pictures, xrays and completing their records. I also support the clinic, helping make everyone’s visits run smoothly!

    A simple conversation with my dental hygienist made me realize that I have a passion for smiles, and I absolutely love working at SCO! The team is amazing, and Dr. Prentice is an incredible orthodontist. I love how everyone works so well together, and it is fantastic to grow and learn in this environment!  Born and raised in Chattanooga, I was the Ooltewah High School mascot (Go Owls!) and love that there is always something to do here - from hiking on local trails, indoor rock climbing, and trying out all the new restaurants...one is never bored when in Chattanooga!

    Hi, my name is Mallory and I’m a clinical assistant, placing and removing braces and changing arch wires.

    I went into the orthodontic field to see smiles and lives change! At SCO, we have the nicest staff; someone is always willing to lend a hand.  My favorite animals are cats and elephants. I love to run, and my favorite thing to do in Chattanooga is kayaking on the river and getting ice cream afterwards! Something interesting about me is that I have outstanding dance moves.

    Morgan

    Hello, I’m Morgan, and as a clinical assistant, I assist Dr. Prentice in archwire changes, indirect and direct bonding, Invisalign records and adjustments, radiographs, and digital impressions.

    I love working at SCO because the staff is like a second family. We all work together like a team to provide the best care for our wonderful patients. Working in orthodontics is so rewarding because you get to see the amazing changes that occur throughout each patient's treatment. It is so exciting to see the confidence that each patient has once they see their new beautiful smile.  I adore my dog, River. He is by far the best dog, and my favorite animal. My favorite things to do in Chattanooga are be with family and friends and getting downtown as much as possible. I love to shop, travel, and try new things!

    Tammy

    Lab Coordinator

    Hello, my name is Tammy, and I oversee our onsite lab.

    I like working in orthodontics because I didn't like my teeth when I was growing up, and I love the idea of now being able to help others become proud of their smile.  My husband, Tim, and I moved to Chattanooga with our children, Tyler and Bailey, in 2008. I love going to the aquarium and taking in all the history this city has to offer.  I grew up on a horse farm, and they are still my favorite animal. We have two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, and I'd have more if I could - they're like potato chips, you can't have just one!

    Tathia

    Treatment/Office Coordinator

    Hello, my name is Tathia (pronounced like “Tasha”), and I am responsible for caring for our wonderful new patients joining our practice as well as day-to-day office management.

    Learning new skills, interacting with the patients and seeing the final results and happiness when treatment is complete, are what I really enjoy about my work. That, and the friendly and fun atmosphere that my coworkers bring to the office!  I have been married to my best friend since 1996 and we have three wonderful sons. My favorite things to do in Chattanooga are going to Coolidge Park and the walking bridge.

    Vivianne

    Clinical Assistant

    Hi, I’m Vivianne, and I’m a clinical assistant and also make retainers and indirect bonding in our lab.

    You might even see me around town in the SCO booth at an event that the practice sponsors…with my English bulldog, Beefy, in tow!  I love working with our patients, and the team here - we are always having fun. Growing up I was terrified of the dentist, but then loved going to the orthodontist as a teenager. I found it fascinating how you could see the results from one appointment to the next  I am originally from Caracas, Venezuela and am bilingual. My husband, Dale, and I love spending time with Beefy, and also our two-legged son, Gusi! I enjoy going to the movies, walking downtown and visiting the Chattanooga Market, cooking out, shopping and fishing!
