Nicki

Practice Administrator

Hello, my name is Nicki and I am the practice administrator for Marris Orthodontics. My career in orthodontics began in 1995 and I have been with Dr. Marris since February of 2007. I can’t imagine a better place to be! From the very beginning, I knew that working with Dr. Marris was the answer to my prayers. She is kind, thoughtful, and sensitive to people’s needs and desires, and truly believes in what we do here every day. I only wish I had met her sooner!

I have three terrific children: Patrick, Alyssa, and Rayven. Yes, she is named after our treatment coordinator, who is also my mother! We live in East Orange County along with our three beautiful dogs. I enjoy the country living.

Orthodontics is such a wonderful thing! A short investment of time, for a smile that lasts a lifetime! So what are you waiting for? I look forward to seeing you soon!

My name is Sherry and I have been with Marris Orthodontics since the beginning of March 2008. I have been in the orthodontic field since 1976. I moved to Florida in 1983 where orthodontics has become my sole career.

I have found my home with Dr. Marris. She is a wonderful boss, as well as a friend. She truly cares about her patients and orthodontic team.

Vanessa

Scheduling Coordinator

Having joined Marris Orthodontics in 2012 with more than ten years of experience in the dental field, I am one of the first people our patients meet. I work at our front desk where I greet patients, take care of administrative duties, and schedule appointments. I really appreciate the interactions I have with our patients and their families, and enjoy getting to know them on a personal level throughout their treatment. Dr. Marris is a wonderful orthodontist, as well as an overall fabulous individual. Our team is very family-oriented and it’s more of a family environment than a workplace.

I was born and raised in Chicago and moved to Orlando in 2010. I have been married for 15 years and am the proud mother of three great kids and one Boxer pup named Bowser. I enjoy watching my son play baseball and attending church.

Finance / Management / Facilities

I focus on a lot of the behind-the-scenes work, including finance, management, strategic planning, and facilities maintenance. I also happen to be Dr. Marris’s husband, and I feel so blessed to be a part of this practice. I enjoy working on big-picture projects that help our practice succeed, but I also love to see the results Dr. Marris achieves in the smiling faces of our patients. The staff and patients are really an extension of our family, and it is so nice to walk in to such a friendly atmosphere.

Outside of the office I am fully involved with the lives of our two boys. Whether I am helping with homework or coaching Little League, I thoroughly enjoy being immersed in their lives. Even though I work with my wife daily, I cherish the time I spend with her outside the office as well.
