The relationships we form with patients every day are what make our day so fun and rewarding. We love getting to know our patients and working with them to achieve their beautiful Zaytoun Signature Smile! Here’s a sneak peek into our lives and why we love being a part of the Zaytoun Orthodontics Team.
Bryna joined the team at Zaytoun Orthodontics in 2000. As the lead treatment and appointment coordinator, she handles all aspects of scheduling, office correspondence, and customer service. Bryna’s smile is often the first thing patients see when they come into the office.
Bryna is a model administrative professional. Prior to working for Zaytoun Orthodontics, she invested seven years in schedule management for a service company arranging appointments for multiple construction professionals. Her efficiency and organizational prowess keep the office running smoothly.
Hailing from Hazelton, Pennsylvania where she was born and raised, Bryna’s family relocated to the Raleigh area over 25 years ago. She is especially proud of her son Scott, who is finishing up his degree in radiation therapy at UNC Chapel Hill, her daughter Summer, who will be graduating from UNC Wilmington and starting her Graduate program in Occupation Therapy at Mary Baldwin University in the spring of 2021 and her two wonderful grandchildren, Jack and Emery. In her free time, Bryna appreciates the simple joys in life like reading, gardening, and relaxing by the pool with her wonderful husband Matt and her two four-legged children, Lilo and Stitch.
A native of Raleigh, Brittany joined Zaytoun Orthodontics as one of our Patient Relations Coordinators in late 2019. Prior to her time with Zaytoun Orthodontics, Brittany held a similar role assisting patients in an oral surgery practice. Her years of experience in the dental industry and her cheery, warm demeanor make Brittany a wonderful asset to our team and our patients. One thing she enjoys most about her role with Zaytoun Orthodontics is seeing patients finish treatment and leave with beautiful smiles that exude confidence and beauty that will surely last a lifetime
Brittany is an alumni of UNC-Wilmington, she currently resides in Garner, NC with her husband, two daughters and two toy poodles. When she is not assisting our fantastic patients, you will find her camping at local lakes or spending time on the Carolina coast visiting various beaches!
Tamaca joined Zaytoun Orthodontics as a patient relations coordinator in early 2020. With degrees in early childhood education and family consumer sciences, she was an elementary school teacher for a decade prior to joining our team. With her love of children and excellent communication skills, she takes care of our patients so well. Tamaca’s favorite part of working at Zaytoun Orthodontics is the family-oriented environment and getting to see smile transformations everyday.
Tamaca is married to her highschool sweetheart, Patrick, and they have two sweet children together – Andrew, 9 years old, and Lucille, 3 years old. She truly enjoys spending time with her little family. And coffee, always coffee! Tamaca prides herself with being a lifelong learner. And believes that everything is better by a large body of water!
Tetyana came to Zaytoun Orthodontics in 2003 to begin her career in the field of orthodontics. As an energetic leader of our clinical team, she is dedicated to quality patient care. Tetyana has a strong work ethic and her great sense of humor and attention to detail make her a patient favorite. She truly enjoys being a part of such a dedicated and caring team of doctors and staff.
Originally from Ukraine, Tetyana has lived in Raleigh for over twenty years. Tetyana’s bicultural background allows her to connect with patients who are also diverse in culture. She has a degree in computer engineering but fell in love with Zaytoun Orthodontics and decided to make it her career.
Outside of work, Tetyana is a family girl with two charismatic kids and a fantastic husband she adores so much. They love to spend time together traveling and getting involved in local activities and organizations. In her free time, Tetyana also enjoys reading and staying fit.
Mark John has a degree in marketing management from Informatics College in the Philippines and an accompanying 10 years of experience as a marketing coordinator in retail sales. A recent arrival to North Carolina (from Metro Manila), he believes in hard work and diligent study to better himself—which is how he suddenly found his way to the dental field! In retrospect, this makes perfect sense because he has always found himself drawn to bright smiles. When he’s not studying or working, Mark John is helping restore a century-old home in Rocky Mount and caring for seven laying chickens; he also likes to travel and be surrounded by friends.
Erin is from Hickory, NC and comes from a large military family. We welcomed Erin to the Zaytoun team in March of 2020, which allowed her to begin her career as an orthodontic technician. Working with people for many years, Erin believes that the best part of your wardrobe is your smile. Her favorite part about being a dental assistant at Zaytoun orthodontics is ensuring our patients are proud to wear theirs! Outside of the office, you can find Erin traveling, hiking, and camping with her two young children, Autumn and Malachi, her husband Tyler, and their cat Simba.
Bethany joined the Zaytoun Orthodontics team in October 2020. She grew up in Richmond, Virginia and prior to moving to Raleigh worked for a non-profit organization that focused on improving quality of life for children with cancer. We like to say that Bethany “married into” the Zaytoun Orthodontics family when she married the grandson of our longtime lab technician, Kim. When Kim retired, she brought Bethany to us to continue her role of creating all the appliances that help improve and maintain our patients’ smiles.
Bethany says that having braces changed her life and her self-confidence, so now getting to be a part of that process for so many others is just the coolest. Her favorite part of Zaytoun Orthodontics is that everyone makes you feel immediately welcome, like family. They truly go above and beyond with patient care.
Dana joined the team at Zaytoun Orthodontics in 2021. As the patient financial coordinator, she provides outstanding customer service and ensures each patient’s financial and insurance needs are met. Her bubbly, cheery professional attitude contributes to the positivity that is exhibited in everything the Z-Team does. Dana was raised in Georgia and relocated to Raleigh in 2005 with her husband, who is a Raleigh native and a former Zaytoun Orthodontics patient from the late 1980s! Together they have two wonderful sons who are currently Zaytoun Orthodontics patients and on their way to fabulous smiles. In her free time, Dana enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading, going to the beach and playing with her pets.
Noelle joined the Zaytoun Orthodontics team as a patient coordinator in May 2021. Prior to joining us, she honed her service-oriented approach in a similar role assisting patients in an occupational therapy practice. Noelle truly thrives in making sure our patients know how welcome and valued they are. Her favorite part of Zaytoun Orthodontics is the family owned and oriented environment that fosters great relationships amongst the team and our community. Getting to see our patient’s confidence flourish during their smile journey is the cherry on top! As a rare Raleigh native, she now resides by Falls Lake with her husband, daughters, and fur babies- Fletcher (lab/pit mix) and Sully (Newfoundland). She loves spending time with her family, especially outdoors at the NC coast, hiking, and biking.
Hailing from a military family, Cayden was born in Fayetteville, NC. Shortly thereafter her family moved to Lillington, NC, which is where she spent her formative years and still proudly calls home today. Cayden joined Zaytoun Orthodontics in April 2021 and quickly proved to be an invaluable member of the team with her excellent work ethic and her uncompromising ability to always put patients first. Cayden knows from her personal braces experience that orthodontics can truly be life-changing. Her goal is to give each patient that same life-changing experience while providing them with knowledge as well as a fun atmosphere throughout their journey. In her spare time, Cayden loves to spend time with family, cuddle her chihuahua Shylo, and find excuses to travel to new places!
Tori, with all of her enthusiasm and fun-loving personality, joined the Z-Team in March 2021. As a Johnston county native, she loves transforming smiles and making lasting connections with patients here in her hometown community. She says being part of the Z-Team is like having lots of extended family – both patients and team members alike! Outside of work, Tori stays busy planning for her November 2022 wedding, spending time with her fiancee and her family, eating lots of pizza while she watches Friends on repeat, and going to the beach every chance she can get.
