Treatment Coordinator

I started my dental career many years ago working as a receptionist and assistant for a pedodontist. I discovered that I love dentistry. I was introduced to orthodontics more than 9 years ago. I really enjoy the rewarding end result of treatment: those beautiful smiles!

I have three grown children, four grandsons and two granddaughters! Most of my spare time is spent enjoying them.

Dr. Leiss and his wife are not only wonderful professionals, but also wonderful people.

I enjoy working for them both. Our staff is knowledgeable and friendly. I am fortunate to be a part of their team!

Appointment Coordinator

It is my pleasure to be part of Dr. Leiss’ team. I have enjoyed working at the front desk long enough to see many patients’ treatment start to finish. It is always exciting to see the joy of a newly reLEISSed smile!

My husband and I met when I was 16 years old; we’ve been married for over 30 years. We have four grown children. We have three grandchildren - what a joy! Our latest addition to the family is a ‘grandpuppy’, a Fox-red Lab; his name is Copper. When I have time to myself, my passion is to quilt. I love spending time with my family playing cards and board games – Scrabble is my favorite!

Orthodontic Assistant

Have you ever heard of being in the “right place at the right time”? I surely was. My daughter and I had a consultation with Dr. Leiss to evaluate her orthodontic care. Having been an orthodontic assistant for over 10 years in the past, I knew my daughter would soon be a patient of Dr. Leiss’. After mentioning my past experience in the field of orthodontics, the staff expressed their interest in my being a member of their team. The rest, as they say, is history!

For my husband and me, family is a large part of our lives. We enjoy our summers vacationing in Sea Isle City, NJ and spending time with our three children.

In the years that I have been here in the office, I have seen what a wonderful orthodontist Dr. Leiss is. His professionalism, knowledge, and experience are evident whenever he and I work together on a patient. I truly enjoy working with Dr. Leiss, and you, our patients. Know that you, too, are in the “right place at the right time” when you are in Dr. Leiss’ care.

Financial Coordinator

I work with Dr. Leiss years ago when he finished school and started practicing orthodontics. It was a pleasure working with him then, so naturally, I was delighted with the opportunity to work with him again. For two years I had helped out on an ‘as needed’ basis. When a position became available, I jumped at the opportunity.

I am now working for a doctor that I respect and admire; and at a practice in which I am proud to be a part!

Orthodontic Assistant

It was a privilege for me to join Dr. Leiss and team when he acquired Dr. Parisi’s practice May of 2014. I have been an orthodontic assistant for about a year, having graduated from Dental Assisting School, October 2013. Currently I am in orthodontic treatment myself, which helps me to empathize with my patients.

For the last five years I have also worked as a waitress which helped me to get through school. This does not leave me with much spare time. When I do get time for myself, my favorite place to be is at the beach with family and friends!

Treatment Coordinator

I am very happy to be a part of Dr. Leiss’ great team. I enjoy working with families and encouraging them through the process toward healthy smiles. As a former High School Guidance Counselor, my passion for helping young people lives on through teeth!

Married to my best friend and raising four great kids has been the highlight of my life. We all enjoy baseball/softball games, dance performances and time relaxing on North Carolina beaches.


Stephanie Brogan

meet the team

Orthodontics Assistant

My career with Leiss Orthodontics began in 2007. I am one of the lucky few to start their career at a place where we are all treated like family. I enjoy welcoming new patients to the family of Leiss Orthodontics and watching them grow into their new smile.

When not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family; my daughter is starting kindergarten this year. I am currently attending school to finish my degree to become a Dental Hygienist.

I look forward to working with you soon and seeing your new smile.

Orthodontic Assistant

In 2008 I moved from the Jersey shore to Pennsylvania. I married my best friend in 2010; we welcomed our first son in 2013. We enjoy vacationing in Disney World, working out together and spending time with my family.

I started working with Dr. Leiss and his team in 2011. I love seeing the smiles on our patients’ faces when they see how wonderful their smiles look.
