Kaplan Orthodontics - Leanne

Leanne

Business Manager

I was born in Memphis, TN and Dr. Kaplan and I moved to the Atlanta area in 2002. I have been with Kaplan Orthodontics since it’s inception in 2005! I love working with this dedicated team, who care for each other and their patients so much. We have two awesome sons, whom I'm passionate about, along side not cooking and punctuality

My formal education is in social work, and in-between grocery shopping, doing laundry and nagging my kids about their school work, I enjoy listening to my favorite podcasts - Armchair Expert and Unlocking Us.

Kaplan Orthodontics - Laura

Laura

Practice Manager

I am originally from Naples Florida, but I was raised here in Georgia. I don’t consider myself a “Southern Belle” because my parents are from Ohio and New Jersey, but we were still raised to be sweet like the GA peaches! I started working for Dr. Kaplan back in 2007. I love my team and Dr. Kaplan - we work hard and play hard and I really just enjoy that balance. We also have some awesome patients, and just seeing how excited they are when they are done with treatment is a pretty awesome feeling too.

In my spare time I love to dance - I’m actually a certified yoga instructor and health coach; hiking anywhere in the mountains, and enjoying time with my husband, adorable dog Piper, and two sons.

 

Lauren

Marketing Manager

I was born in Maryland, raised in Pennsylvania, then moved to a suburb of Atlanta in 2007. I started with Kaplan Orthodontics in 2019 and honestly, the time has flown by! The best part of my job is what every marketer dreams of - total creative freedom. Dr. Kaplan and my co-workers trust me to represent this office and show off our team and their amazing skills, and that’s just the coolest feeling in the world to have that kind of trust from your peers.

In my free time you can find me at the lake wake-boarding, traveling anywhere in Europe (but Italy is my favorite) or watching old reruns of Star Trek - not even a little ashamed to admit I’ve seen every Trek episode ever made…ever.

 

Kaplan Orthodontics - Jess

Jess

Treatment Coordinator

Hola! I was born in Michoacán, Mexico but raised in the Norcross area. I started in 2018 and I’ve loved every minute of working here. This amazing team of people I get to work with every day is one of the best parts of my job, and I just love getting to be a part of creating beautiful smiles!

After work I love watching my favorite show - The Office, rescuing more pets than I probably need…but they’re cute so it’s ok, and hiking. I love learning to cook new recipes (because food is life) and shopping for home decor.

 

Stephanie

Patient Coordinator

One of the few who live in Atlanta, that are actually from Atlanta! Crazy right? So happy I started at Kaplan in 2020 - I just love my team! They're so great to work with, and I also like that I get to help patients, even with the smallest things, to make their day better so in the end they leave here happy!

I'm a dog mom that likes doing crafts in my spare time and am open to trying almost anything once. In my free time I like to paint, shop, watch criminal shows (it’s kind of a theme here), or finding new places to eat! I love walking around the city or enjoying a big park, but the beach is my most favorite, and definitely my happy place.

 

Isabel

Patient Coordinator

Another GA native, through and through! I started with Kaplan in 2020 and I love these crazy, upbeat and happy coworkers of mine. I also like that I get to be the first interaction every patient who walks through our doors sees and talks too!

If you know me at all, you know I live for the GA Bulldogs, and my own dog, an Australian Sheppard named Oakley. I could also add Dunkin Donuts coffee to that list of things I can’t live without! When I’m not working, I love watching Friends reruns, doing some home decor, and getting out to play disc golf.

 

Kaplan Orthodontics - Ashley

Ashley

Clinical Assistant

Close enough to be a Georgian, I was born in Jacksonville, Florida but moved up here to the Suwanee area as a young kid. I started with Dr. Kaplan in November of 2012, and I literally just feel like a part of his family now! The best part about my job is how I get to help people have greater confidence in their smile, and of course, work with some amazing team EVER!

I lived in Europe for 2 years and in 3 different countries, so you can say traveling is a passion of mine. I also really enjoy coloring, spending time at home with my husband and furbaby, and binging movies of any kind, but I really love those scary ones!

 

Giselle

Clinical Assistant

I was born in Dallas, TX but raised here in Atlanta since I was 8 years old, and started working for Dr. Kaplan at the beginning of 2019. I think what I love most about my job, is being a part of this incredible team of people, all working together to help create beautiful smiles for our patients. Another awesome thing that came in 2019 was that I married my best friend! During the Covid-19 pandemic no less, but you can’t stop love!

In my free time I can usually be found playing volleyball with my friends or dancing to latin music. My favorites are Bachata, Merengue and Salsa! You might also find me absolutely killing the hula hoop game. I’ve won every single hula hoop challenge I’ve ever been a part of. Resident hula champ right here!

 

Kaci

Clinical Assistant

Hey y'all, another GA native here! I was born and raised in the heart of Duluth, and started at Kaplan Orthodontics in 2020. I love being able to help people get the smile that they deserve, and seeing them gain more confidence right in front of my eyes, at the end of treatment with that first new smile.

When not helping people smile more confidently, you can find me scrapbooking, heading out for a hike, petting ALL the dogs, or planning our next family vacation to Disney World with my son Blake!

 

Kaplan Orthodontics - Skipper

Katherine

Clinical Assistant

Georgia born and raised - a true Georgia peach! I started with Dr. Kaplan back in 2013 and I have loved seeing all the transformation of smiles over the years, just knowing I was apart of of that.

When I’m not at work I enjoy listening to music, which of course, always involves dancing. I stay current by learning all the latest dance moves from my three daughters! I'm also a big Falcons fan, enjoy traveling, refurbishing furniture, and a good Netflix binge with my family.

 

Krissy

Clinical Assistant

I am from Miami, FL and I moved to GA when I was just a kid. I started at Kaplan Orthodontics in 2019, and I love the work I get to do every day. Seeing the end result of our patients’ orthodontic treatment, with all their happy smiles and radiant confidence, it’s just so rewarding!

Outside of work, you can find me exploring new hiking trails, in the kitchen experimenting with new baking recipes, or listening to crime podcasts…I’m kind of obsessed with those. I hope to add ‘traveling to Peru so I can fulfill my dream of being surrounded by llamas,’ to my list of activities I do outside of work at some point this year!
