Our Staff

Alex9_7Alex Cooper, Office Manager

"I have had the pleasure of working in the dental field since 1996 and couldn't imagine doing anything else. There is nothing quite like watching the change in patients from their first appointment, when they are not happy with their smile, to being unable to stop smiling at the end of their treatment.

I believe in having a team that feels appreciated and valued as this simply increases the positive energy in the office and is felt by everyone that walks through the door. When you are a part of Smith Smile Orthodontics, you are a part of our family!

Out in the real world I enjoy quality time with my son Tanner and daughter Payton and our Furkid, Kennedy".

"I have been with Smith Smile Orthodontics working as Dr. Jerry's Treatment Coordinator for 5 years. I love my job because I get to meet with new and interesting people everyday and help them begin their journey towards their perfect smile!

I am a Marietta native, having graduated from Lassiter High School. I obtained my Undergraduate Degree and MBA from Kennesaw State University. I love spending my free time with my husband and our 2 kids and enjoying time with good friends".

"I have worked for Dr. Jerry since 2005 in a variety of capacities and enjoy the ability I have to interact with patients and their families. I am passionate about Smith Smile Orthodontics and love keeping Dr. Jerry involved in our community and local schools.

In life outside of the office, I get to enjoy being Dr. Jerry's wife and mother to our 6 children: Ryan, Ali, Kathryn, Harrison, Jack and Creed and our Labradoodle "Molli". My free time is spent hiking, playing with our kids, photography and Bible study with my close friends."

"I have been in the orthodontic field for 28 years. I love being in orthodontics because I feel great joy seeing the transformation of our patients smiles and improved confidence. It's very rewarding to work with Dr. Jerry and to learn the latest techniques and advancements from him.

In my spare time I love doing charity work for Operation Smile because I feel a smile is the most basic form of communication."

"I have been in the dental field for 6 years. I love the family atmosphere we have at Smith Smile Orthodontics and I look forward to seeing our patients everyday!

I'm very adventurous and in my free time I enjoy traveling and spending lots of quality with my husband and family and friends. I also LOVE watching sports... GO PACKERS!"

"I have been working in the orthodontic field since 2011. I have been surrounded by orthodontics all of my life. My mother and several other family members are in the profession in one way or another, hence I grew a passion for it at a very young age! I enjoy coming to work everyday. I like to smile a lot and you know what they say... Smiles Are Contagious!

In my spare time, I enjoy doing anything outdoors, spending time with my family and baby brother, and of course- shopping!

"I guess you could say I was "born" with an interest in orthodontics- I was born with two sets of adult teeth! Orthodontics was a natural career choice for me since I enjoy working with my hands and meeting new people. I guess that's why when I'm not working, I enjoy doing all kinds of crafts."


Bio coming soon.


"I have been in the Orthodontic field since 2010. I enjoy meeting and creating lifelong relationships with each and every patient. Being able to witness the amazing changes that happen throughout Orthodontic treatment is one of my favorite things about being in this field. Outside of the office I enjoy shopping, motorcycle riding, and traveling to new places!"
