I joined the Charlottesville Orthodontic team in 2002. I enjoy working chair side with Drs. Weis and Varner and side-by-side with some of my best friends. I value the relationships made with patients and their families over the course of their treatment. Seeing a patient’s smile for the first time after having braces removed makes my job so rewarding.

When I’m not in the office, I can be found hiking with my family, out on the lake, or at home working on craft projects.

I started working at Charlottesville Orthodontics in January 2012 as a Scheduling Coordinator. After a year, I transitioned to the back where I currently assist Drs. Weis and Varner chair side. My attraction to the dental field began in high school, and I’m lucky to spend my days doing what I really have a passion for. I’m beyond blessed to be able to work with such an incredible group of people. Our amazing patients are what inspires me daily, and I love helping them attain a beautiful smile they can be proud of for a lifetime.

Outside of work you can find me with my family. My husband, Justin and I have two adventurous and very energetic children named Landon and Lylah, who are the center of our world!

Brittany – Practice Relations Coordinator

Brittany.jpgMy husband and I have lived in Charlottesville since 2011, and I started working for Charlottesville Orthodontics shortly after moving here from Richmond. I had heard how wonderful Dr. Weis was prior to moving here and immediately realized that our office was truly a special place.

I feel very blessed and think I have the best job in the world! To state that I am a people person is an understatement. We, at Charlottesville Orthodontics, provide our patients with beautiful smiles for a lifetime. I get to be a small part of that by bringing smiles to people’s faces out in the community by spreading the word about what we love to do, visiting dental offices, showing people how much we appreciate them, planning and inviting people to fun events and by plugging us into the community we absolutely adore.

Tayler – Clinical Assistant

I joined Charlottesville Orthodontics in early 2014 as an Orthodontic Assistant. Since the day I had braces put on in high school, I have had an interest in dentistry. Before finishing my assisting program based in Fredericksburg, Virginia, I was asked to become part of this amazing team. I enjoy working chair side next to Drs. Weis and Varner. We have an amazing, skilled and inspiring group of individuals that I have the pleasure of working with every day. I look forward to helping our patients enjoy their beautiful smiles for a lifetime.

I currently reside in Madison and am planning a wedding with my fiancé, Josh, for September 2016. We have two dogs, Maya and Kimber, that we adore. When I’m not in the office, you can find me hunting, fishing, riding four wheelers, or kayaking.

Juli-An – Clinical Assistant

In late January 2015, I obtained my orthodontic assistant position here at Charlottesville Orthodontics. From the first day of being in the office, I knew this was where I wanted to call home. Working alongside Dr. Weis and Dr. Varner has been more than I could have ever imagined, as they are just as patient and compassionate toward their staff as they are with their patients. It is truly an honor to be able to come to the office each day knowing that what you are doing is making an impact in someone else’s life.

On the days I am not working, you can find me with my loving fiancé, Kyle, and our precious little girl, Kyleigh. We spend a lot of our time around the farm with our German Shepard, riding four-wheelers, or enjoying meals with our parents and siblings.

I look forward to meeting and providing a new meaningful smile to our current and future patients!
