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 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! My son lives in Pennsylvania with his lovely lady, and his sisters and I live in Seminole County. We have a large fur family: Chihuahua Tatina, Red-Nose Pit Bull Terrier Simba, Pastel Ball Python Samira, and our four cats: Curious, Fiona, Oscar, and Robbie!

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!

Rayven

Rayven

Treatment Coordinator

Hello, my name is Rayven and I am the treatment coordinator at Marris Orthodontics. It’s my pleasure to introduce you to our practice and help you get started on your path to a beautiful smile and good oral health! I became a certified orthodontic assistant in 1981, have many years of clinical experience, and have worked with Dr. Marris since July 2007. I am passionate about orthodontics and I enjoy the positive changes Dr. Marris makes in peoples’ lives. The most exciting part of my work is watching our patients’ smiles change and their personalities shine as their confidence grows!

My husband Ken and I have been married since 1991. We have two furbabies, Dallas and Taquita. Between Ken and I, we have five adult children and nine grandchildren, with two more due in the spring of 2018. I also recently became a great-grandmother to a beautiful baby boy! I take pleasure in caring for my many plants and still enjoy reading “real” books and turning down the corner of the page to save my spot! Experimenting with new recipes is one of my more fun guilty pleasures.

I have been an assistant in the dental and orthodontic field since 1992. I really love helping patients achieve a beautiful smile with quality care, comfort, and understanding. I am excited to be part of Marris Orthodontics, and working with the kindest, most caring doctor and an amazing team!

I am a native Floridian, raised in the Winter Park area. I have two children: daughter Carson and son Campbell. I enjoy going to New Smyrna Beach (a lot), watching my son’s soccer games, bike riding, going to the farmers market, and Sunday brunch with family and friends.

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 you’ll meet! I work at our front desk, where I greet patients, take care of administrative duties, and schedule appointments. I really enjoy the interactions I have with our patients and their families, and 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 more of a family environment itself than a workplace.

I was born and raised in Chicago and moved to Orlando in 2010. I have been married since 1999, I am the proud mother of three great kids, and two fur babies, Bowser and Roxy. I enjoy watching my son play baseball and catching up on Netflix.

Welcome! My name is Vicky. I assist with scheduling new patients and all new-patient initial needs, greet families, answer the phones, and handle follow-up appointments for patients. I have the pleasure of working with our patients, from the initial appointment through the progression of treatments, to finally seeing the end results. It’s a great joy to see how happy the patients are with their healthy, radiant smiles when they are done with their treatment! I have experienced firsthand how caring, dedicated, and professional Dr. Marris is with her patients. We are truly a family here at Marris Orthodontics!

I have been married since 1995, and am the proud mother of three handsome and wonderful young men. I have more than ten years of experience in medical billing and coding field. I am bilingual, fluent in Spanish, and have provided medical interpreter services for the past several years.

It’s so rewarding to see the final results! Each day here is such a blessing, Dr. Marris and our team are a fun group that create a welcoming, family-focused environment.

I live in Deltona with my husband Todd and dogs Charley and Jaxon. I love going to the beach, painting, and spending time with friends and family.

Patient Manager 

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, and orthodontics became my sole career here.

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. I haven’t met too many doctors that sacrifice their personal time for their patients and their team like Dr. Marris does. She puts in overtime to improve her practice. I am very blessed to have her as my boss, not to mention the great people with whom I work.

I am married to a great man named Tom. I have a lovely daughter, Lindsey, a wonderful dog named Boomer, and a cat, Mew. I love spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy working in my yard.

I love working here at Team Marris and have been a part of this team since June 2011! Dr. Marris herself is very family oriented, and she brings that love of family to work with her. My team members are also wonderful, from the front office to the clinical area, everyone creates a fun, friendly environment!

I lived in New York for 29 years and relocated to Florida in 2011. I’ve been married since 2002, and we have two wonderful dogs named Peanut and Guinness. I love spending time outdoors, either by the pool or hiking, and I also enjoy arts and crafts.

Marketing Coordinator

Hello! My name is Bridget and I am the marketing coordinator for Marris Orthodontics. I am a graduate of UCF: GO KNIGHTS! I began my career in the marketing and advertising field in 1996, and worked with all sorts of different companies, such as restaurant chains, hotels and resorts, cell phone services, home builders, and now, teeth! It’s something so important to each and every one of us.

I live in East Orlando with my husband, two children, and Golden Retriever puppy. I enjoy spending lots of family time with them: swimming in the pool, playing games, and having BBQs. I enjoy reading books, spending time with family and friends, and antiquing for treasures. I hope to meet you soon!

Rod

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 into such a friendly atmosphere.

Outside the office, I am fully involved with the lives of our two boys. Whether I am helping with homework or on the ballfield, 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.
