Laura

Office Coordinator

I welcome patients as they come into our office, schedule appointments, manage our team, and help make the office run as smoothly as possible for Dr. Fleming. Having joined the practice in 1998, I share a common goal with our team of providing a quality orthodontic experience to all of our patients.

It is so rewarding to watch as smiles change over time, and see firsthand the difference we make in our patients’ lives.
I am a native of Illinois and have been married to my high school sweetheart, Joe, since 1974. We are immensely proud of our two children, Joey and Kari, and our two granddaughters, Stella and Sofia. I love to go to the beach in Seaside, Florida in the summer.

I joined the practice in 2007 and interact with our patients on a one-on- one basis, and have had experience as an assistant and treatment coordinator for the office. I am now enjoying being the financial coordinator. I strive to help each individual have the smoothest process possible with financing their treatment and coordinating their insurance. Working with patients from their initial visit, I enjoy getting to know each patient while helping them achieve a beautiful smile.

It is amazing how much orthodontic treatment can boost one’s self-esteem! I also love working with Dr. Fleming and our team. We all go above and beyond to give our patients phenomenal results! I have a son, Jaxson, and 3 sweet dogs at home! I love to watch movies, either in the theater or at home, enjoy reading, bowling and being with my family.
