Hi, I'm Kaitlyn, I'm a military brat and spouse.  Across the country and even overseas: where the military sends me is my home!  My daughters, husband and I have been enjoying NC and everything there is to offer around us.  My hobbies are sightseeing, training my Great Dane pup, paddle boarding, and making fresh pasta!


Hi, my name is Andrea (Andi), I am a native of Hope Mills, NC.  I was a military spouse for 23 years.  We raised three children, our daughter has given us two wonderful grandchildren, our sons are U.S. Army Pilots, and are my greatest accomplishments.  I have recently received an Associate of Arts in the Criminal Justice System.

My true passion though is being an Orthodontist Assistant.  I have been an assistant for 15 years.  I constantly learn something, watching smiles change and seeing the transition in my patients.  I have been with Whitehead Orthodontics/Calabria Orthodontics since 2011.  The best part about Whitehead Orthodontics, my flaws are a learning experience, laughter is welcomed, and working hard and fun can integrate and make for an amazing work environment.


Emily was born to a military family in Stuttgart, Germany. She’s traveled all through Europe, Africa, and Asia. Emily came with her family to North Carolina where her father retired from the Army. She’s graduated from ECU and is now in the D.5 dental program at VCU. She has been working as an orthodontic assistant/technician for 4 years, and she enjoys it because she loves meeting new people and helping them achieve their ideal smile.
