Lauren
Orthodontic Technician

I started working in the orthodontic field in 2005, after graduating from Western School of Business.  I have worked with Dr. Rinchuse for more than 8 years and I was one of the first assistants to join the team. I work directly with patients doing adjustments, placing and removing braces and appliances. I also order all the office supplies and manage our Invisalign cases.  I even let Doc talk to me into being an Invisalign patient myself!  I live in West Leechburg with my husband, son, cat and 2 dogs. I love what I do and love seeing all the new smiles!!  When not at the office I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.

Chelsea
Orthodontic Technician

I graduated Western School of Health in 2007 and I have been an orthodontic assistant for 11 years. I have also worked with Dr. Rinchuse for more than 8 years.  At Orthodontique I handle the lab appliances for our patients as well assisting the doctor in all treatment appointments. I particularly enjoy deband day (BRACES OFF!)  Including the 2 times Doc took mine off!  Yep, that's right. Guess who learned firsthand about the need to wear a retainer? I've been blessed with a little girl who is 7 years old and one more bundle of joy due July 2019.  I have 2 cats and 1 dog. When I’m not spending time with my family I enjoy hanging out with my friends and going to the movies!

Wendy
Orthodontic Technician

Hello! I have been working as an Orthodontic Assistant for over 15 years and have been with Dr. Rinchuse for more than 8 years as well. I also assist the doctor with all appointments and help with inventory. My favorite part of my job is seeing the end result. My husband and I have been married for 15 years and have 3 boys and 2 dogs.  In my free time I enjoy camping and spending time with my family. You will most likely find me at one of my kids sporting events.

Sandy
Office Manager (Natrona Heights and Leechburg)

Although I have known Doc for more than 8 years, I officially joined the team in 2015.  I schedule and organize daily tasks for Dr. Rinchuse and the team.  I am also in charge of all the financial matters at the offices. I enjoy meeting families and welcoming them into our Orthodontique family. In my spare time I like to travel, attend Pittsburgh sporting events and spend time with loved ones.  I love to entertain and cook.  As a survivor, I am very active in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure every May with my family, friends and Orthodontique family.  I have a son and daughter and am married to my best friend, Bill. I am the proud Nonna to a granddaughter and am excited to welcome another in July 2019.

Susie
Office Manager (Belle Vernon)

After graduating from Belle Vernon Area High School in 1999, I began working as a dental assistant and obtained my CDA (2002) and my RDH (2004) from WCCC.  I have since worked in many aspects of the dental office, having experience in pedodontics, oral surgery, general dentistry and orthodontics.  Having known Dr. Rinchuse since High School (1996) I joined the Orthodontique team a few months after our Belle Vernon office opened for business in 2013.  At Orthodontique I hold an administrative position and the daily financial operations of the office including accounts receivable, insurance claims and assist patients in making payment arrangements.  I especially enjoy seeing our patients beautiful smiles once finished with braces. Outside of work I enjoy the outdoors, traveling and spending time with my husband and 2 daughters.

Monica
Front Office/ Billing (Belle Vernon)

Hello! I am one the first faces you may see when you come to Orthodontique. I handle checking our patients in and out and scheduling.  I also handle accounts receivable and billing.  I joined the team in 2017, while my daughter was an early treatment patient at the office. When I am not at Orthodontique you may see me or know me from the baseball fields with my son Colt or gymnastics with my daughter Bella. I truly love what I do and the people I meet.

Lisa
Treatment Coordinator (Belle Vernon)

I am the newest member of the team, joining in 2019.  My job is to verify insurance benefits and help our patients and their families with affordable payment options.  I also obtain initial records for new patients and handle some of the administrative work to make the day run smoothly.  I graduated in 1985, from Mon Valley Area vocational-technical School adult education, with a certificate in dental assisting. I have been married for 25 years and am a mother of two boys.  When not at Orthodontique, I stay busy running a Tastefully Simple Business.  In my time off, I enjoy camping and various outdoor adventures.
