Shay, a West Palm Beach native, joins Freedman & Haas Orthodontics as an orthodontic technician. Shay loves the field of orthodontics especially working on new patients and in the lab. She is always eager to talk with patients and answer any questions they have to help them feel more comfortable. Shay is fascinated by the transformation of her patient's smiles during orthodontic treatment and she loves to see the patients' reactions to their end results. Outside of work, Shay enjoys spending time at the beach, skateboarding with her mom and working out.
Cheryl joins Freedman and Haas Orthodontics as an orthodontic technician. Orthodontics was one of Cheryl's favorite specialties in Dental Assistant Training School. She enjoys all aspects within the orthodontic field, but her favorite part is seeing happy, satisfied, smiling patients after completion of treatment. She is friendly and enjoys patients and nice smiles, but she is serious about clean teeth and not breaking braces! Outside of the office, Cheryl enjoys spending time with her fiancé, painting, going to the movies and taking care of her dog, Annie.
