Meet Our Amazing Staff
Amanda Chief Operating Officer Amanda@EmeraldCoastBraces.com
I am fortunate to have been working at this practice since September of 2001. My position as Scheduling Coordinator gives me the opportunity to meet every patient as they come to our office, and I even assist in the clinic when needed.
I have worked in the field of orthodontics since 1992. During my career in orthodontics, I have become certified by the National Board of Orthodontic Assisting and the Dental Assistant Expanded Functions in Orthodontics and have attended many continuing education courses.
In my spare time, I enjoy decorating, reading, spending time at the beach and being with my family. I have been married to my husband Brian since 1994 and we have three lovely children, Lindsey, Ella, and Owen.
The greatest aspects of my job are meeting new people, creating beautiful smiles and watching self-confidence build in each and every one of our patients.
Born and raised here in Florida, Lori joined the Fishbein Orthodontic team in 2015. With a friendly personality and ready smile, Lori has worked in the dental field, and more recently as a flight attendant. While she loves flying and enjoyed meeting new people every day, her desire for a sense of normalcy brought her back to the dental/orthodontic field. She is a wonderful asset to our team, and her favorite party of working here is being the first person to greet patients when they walk through the door! She and her boyfriend Kevin enjoy working out, spending time with family and friends, and going to the beach!
Nancy Financial Coordinator Nancy@EmeraldCoastBraces.com
I am originally from Okinawa, Japan but was raised in Arkansas, where my dad retired from the United States Air Force after 20 years. I graduated from Vilonia High School and received my B.B.A. in marketing at the University of Central Arkansas. I began my orthodontic career after college in 1997.
I have been a member of this great team since May 2014. As the financial coordinator, I have the opportunity to offer affordable payment options to our patients and answer any questions they may have about insurance. I work with an amazing group of people that make work incredibly enjoyable.
I recently married my husband, Jeff, in October 2014. I now have 3 wonderful sons, Matt, Derrick, and RJ. We also have 2 dogs, Cole and Ace. I enjoy going to the beach, cooking, drawing, and watching the Packers. GO PACK GO!
My family moved to Florida when I was young, so I got to spend most of my life by the beach. I graduated with degrees in Advertising/Marketing and Fine Arts. My FurChildren are giant lap dogs, Zoso and Coda. I love spending time with them anywhere near the water. My parents and little sister are locals as well, so you can normally catch us playing loud music and picnicking in their backyard.
I took a huge leap of faith to completely change directions and join an Ortho team in January, 2016. I couldn't have been luckier to land with the best possible team a girl could ask for! I get to be creative and design a lot of the fun graphics you see with our fish on them, plus meet new amazing patients and start them on their path to a beautiful smile.
Kasey Treatment Coordinator Kasey@EmeraldCoastBraces.com
I have been a part of the Fishbein Orthodontics team since March of 2014. I am a Certified Orthodontic Assistant, but I work mostly with new patients. I am very passionate about orthodontics, and I love developing relationships with my patients. I am very thankful to be a part of such an amazing team!
I recently graduated Cosmetology School and love doing makeup in my spare time. Animals, traveling, and shopping are just a few of my favorite things!
Brittany joined the Fishbein Orthodonic team in early 2015. She had a very happy childhood growing up as an “Army kid” and has lived all over the world in places such as Germany, Tennessee, Texas, and now Florida. She graduated from PCC with a Bachelor of Science in Education, but luckily for us decided her true passion was in orthodontics! Brittany has an extremely happy and fun personality and is always smiling! Her favorite part of her job is meeting and developing relationships with all of our awesome patients! Brittany is extremely proud of her husband Kaleb who is a law enforcement officer. They love spending time with their “furbabies” Ace and Roscoe, and when not at work they can be found hanging out with friends and family and enjoying time at the beach!
Dental Hygienist / Certified Orthodontic Assistant
I am a Registered Dental Hygienist and Certified Orthodontic Assistant for Fishbein Orthodontics. The favorite part of my job is working one-on-one with patients to help them achieve beautiful smiles, while also developing great relationships with these same patients throughout their treatment. My ultimate goal is to provide the highest quality of professional care and to treat the patient the way I would like to be treated.
I joined the practice on July 7, 1986 and have enjoyed being a part of its growth over the years and the excitement of the transition to Fishbein Orthodontics. Dr. Fishbein brings a new energy to the practice, which makes working fun!
A little personal history... I am a Pensacola native, graduated from Gulf Breeze High and from the Dental Hygiene Program at PJC in 1977. I am licensed to practice Dental Hygiene in the State of Florida. Before coming to work in this practice, I worked for a local pedodontist (children's dentist) for almost eight years. My husband, Chris, is a retired City of Pensacola Firefighter. We have two grown children, Lyndsey & Kent, son-in-law, Joe and granddaughter, Sydney. In my free time I enjoy sewing, embroidery, going to the beach and playing with our Weimaraner, "Georgia".
Thank you for the opportunity and privilege to serve you in your orthodontic needs!

Melissa has been in the orthodontic field since 2006, joining our team in early 2015. She is a very skilled assistant and loves the fun atmosphere, laid back vibe, outgoing staff, and especially the amazing patients here at Fishbein Orthodontics! When they aren’t busy keeping up with their four children (Macy- 8, Avery- 4, Raeleigh- 4, and Bowen- 3) Melissa and John enjoy hunting and being involved with their church.
Born and raised here in Pensacola, I joined the team in July of 2017. I am enjoying every second of it and I am extremely fortunate to be apart of such an amazing and hardworking team. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, spending time at the beach and watching scaring movies! I am also a dog mom to a beautiful Blue Merle Border Collie named Oliver.

I was born in Tennessee and moved to Florida in the 3rd grade. I am currently enrolled as a student at Pensacola State College. I joined the Fishbein family in 2017. I started as a records tech and shortly after I got offered the opportunity to train as an orthodontic assistant. I love what I do and enjoy meeting so many beautiful people on this journey.
In my free time I love going to the beach, eating food, and spending time with my friends and family. Most importantly, I enjoy spending time by the pool with my Gramgram.
Remember, you don’t have to brush all of your teeth, just the ones you want to keep!
Hey everyone! My name is Jenna and I'm an orthodontic assistant here at Fishbein Orthodontics! I love working with patients and helping people gain confidence with their smiles! I'm originally from Arkansas and have been living in Florida for about a year! In my free time, I love going to the beach or hanging out with my sisters!
Hey y’all! I am a fully trained administrative assistant and currently working as a records technician here at Fishbein Orthodontics. I was born in Riverside, California but was raised here in Florida. I love working with our amazing team and am so grateful to be apart of such an amazing practice! I look forward to meeting you!
I was born and raised in the tiny town of Chatom, Alabama, but for the past five years I have spent most my time in Mobile, Alabama as I went to college. Although my degree is in Music Education I decided to give the Orthodontic field a try and I discovered that there are many aspects of teaching in Orthodontics. I love working in the office and being the first face the patients see when they come in, however, every now and then you may catch me observing in the clinic trying to learn everything I can about the orthodontic industry.
This past May I married my husband Jacob and together we adopted our wonderful goldendoodle puppy Beau. I enjoy spending my time baking sweets, reading a good novel, and waterskiing. However, spending time with my family is my favorite way to spend the day!
