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.
Joining Zaytoun Orthodontics as a Dental Assistant in early 2019, Alexis prides herself on providing optimal patient care by putting the needs of our patients first. Born and raised in Clayton, NC, she enjoys creating a welcoming environment for all of our patients, regardless of their age. Her favorite part about being a Dental Assistant is utilizing the cutting-edge technology Zaytoun offers like the 3-D digital scanner eliminating messy impressions! When she is not helping transform smiles, she likes to spend time with her family at the NC coast and explore around the greater Raleigh area.
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.
Samantha started her career in orthodontics in 2019 in West Virginia. She joined the Z-Team in August of 2020 after relocating to the Raleigh area with her husband. She is continuously asking questions to gain more knowledge and provide the best care to her patients. Her favorite part of being a dental assistant is watching a patient’s personality and confidence grow with each appointment. When she is not at work, you can find Samantha on the golf course, throwing axes, or taking care of her two cats–Mama and Nugget.
While finishing his last semester at NC State, Evan joined Zaytoun Orthodontics in February of 2020 to help implement the new digital 3D printer and printer technology within the lab. Since then, he has helped create, implement and finetune the digital workflow to catapult Zaytoun Orthodontics to the forefront of digital dentistry. He has transitioned to working with patients as part of the orthodontic technician team. Beginning the fall of 2021, Evan will be attending dental school to achieve his dreams of becoming a dentist…or maybe even an orthodontist!

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.
Formally a Dental Technician in the Navy, Chris has been with Zaytoun Orthodontics since 1998. Chris knows the effect a person’s smile can have on their self-esteem and she loves to look at the before and after photos of our patients. Chis takes pride in her role with Zaytoun Orthodontics because she believes that the beautiful smiles we create are something that our patients can wear and be proud of for the rest of their lives.
Originally from Hollidaysburg, PA, Chris lived many places before settling down in Raleigh with her husband. She is a news talk radio and Pinterest junkie and enjoys cross-fit training, gardening, cooking, canning, four-wheeling, and spending time with her two dogs.
