I assist Dr. O'Leary with bandings, sterilization, oral hygiene instructions, and help with completion of patient treatment. I love asking our patients how their day is going and hearing what exciting things they have planned for their weekend. I work with fabulous people who laugh and learn new things every day. Dr. O'Leary makes the staff feel like family. He is very understanding and caring to all the patients and staff. He enjoys what he does and that reflects onto our patients.

I assist Dr. O'Leary with bondings and bandings, cementing of appliances, patient adjustments, and education of oral hygiene. I really enjoy interacting with our patients of all ages and knowing that I'm involved in improving something as important as someone's smile and self-confidence is the ultimate bonus. Having fun and being personable helps to keep our patients at ease and ensures that their experience is as pleasurable as possible. All of our employees are truly friends, both in and out of the office. We never miss a chance to laugh and I really feel that translates in our relationship with our patients.

Certified Orthodontic Assistant

Hi, I'm Danielle! I am a chairside assistant for Dr. O'Leary. I can assist him in a wide variety of procedures ranging from reties to bondings and braces removal. I have been a dental assistant since 2007 and have held a few positions in that field but my most favorite has to be Orthodontics! I enjoy orthodontics because I like fixing things. As part of a grander scheme, it brings order out of chaos.

I live in Irmo with my husband, Jim, our son, Tanner, and we also have a daughter, Rebeckah, attending college in North Carolina. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with our three dogs. I also love to crochet, cook, and spend time with friends and family.

I assist patients with scheduling appointments and making sure our team runs on time.  I've been with O'Leary Orthodontics for almost two years and can honestly say that I've never enjoyed a job more.  Our team works together as if we're a well-olied machine.  We have lots of laughs, more jokes than we can count and best of all friends that have turned into family.

I live in Lexington close to Lake Murray. I enjoy spending time with my siblings and their children by the pool or visiting Virginia Hilton Park.  I love to cook for my family, seeing the satisfaction on their faces makes this chef very happy.  I'm a student at Midlands Tech and aspire to further my career in the orthodontic field.
