Meet Our Staff

Hi! My name is Jill and I have been working at PDA&O since 2009. I am the Orthodontic Treatment Coordinator for Dr. Jason, which means I am one of the first people to see our new patients smiling faces. I handle discussing orthodontic appliances and treatment options with the patients and parents. Working at PDA&O gives me the joy of developing relationships with our patients as well as participating in the transformation of many smiles!

Hi! My name is Amy and I have worked for PDA&O since 2005. I am the Marketing Coordinator for our office & also the Hospital Coordinator. I love working at PDA&O because I am allowed the pleasure of helping kids on a daily basis.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my two kids, KK and JJ. I am absolutely obsessed with sports, mainly football and basketball. I am an avid Razorback fan and try to attend as many home games as possible. I have recently developed a small crush on the Oklahoma City Thunder! When I am not watching sports, I love to do crafts such as repainting furniture or other fun projects I have found on Pinterest!

As you can see by my photo and I am currently a patient of Dr. Jason's. He is a wonderful orthodontist and has achieved what I consider a miracle on straightening my teeth. I have a renewed self-confidence about myself all because of his work. He is very good at explaining the process and making sure I obtain a healthy smile that will last a lifetime.

Hola! My name is Lorena, I have been working at PDA & O since 2006, took a couple years off moved back to Mexico with my family and finally came back in 2009.

I am currently in treatment with Dr Jason,so my smile is also under construction.

Hey Ya'll!
I'm Courtney and it's so great to meet you! I started working for Dr. Jason in December of 2015. I moved to the Northwest Arkansas area after getting married to my favorite human, Josh, in October 2015. I am new to this area but I grew up not too far down the road in Fort Smith. We are loving living here! There is always something to do and new people to meet. Josh is an assistant baseball coach at HarBer High School and he also teaches P.E. at Hellstern Middle School. We have one fur-baby, Pebbles, who is completely spoiled and we adore her. In my free time I love to read, spend time with my family and friends, and hang out with my two younger sisters. I love working here at PDAO! It has been a wonderful experience and I am so excited to be apart of the team! I can't wait to get to know all of you and share in your orthodontic experience!!
Have a great day and I look forward to seeing you at your next visit!!

My family comes first and if I am not at work you can find me spending my time with them, supporting my daughter at all of her sporting events. Go Tigers! If you see me in the office, I love high fives so give me your best shot! See you all soon!
