Meet the Team

Kathy Tosh

Orthodontic Technician

I am one of Dr. Ely’s chairside assistants, and work to help put braces on, change wires, take X-rays and photographs, and bond loose brackets. I love getting to know our patients on a personal level and watching as they progress throughout their treatments with confidence. In the time I’ve been with this office, it’s been great to see the transformation of our patients’ smiles and the confidence it gives them. My husband, Aaron, and I have one son named Jack and a daughter named Ella. I love volunteering for my children’s sports and activities.

Treatment Coordinator

I joined OLV in 2009, and brought with me over 20 years of experience in orthodontics. I’ve really enjoyed getting to meet so many people and making such a huge difference in their lives. Dr. Ely is a great person and an awesome doctor. The team here gets along really well and it's a fun atmosphere for patients. I love my job, and when I’m not here, I love my family and spending my time shoe shopping!

My name is Senada. I am originally from Montenegro. I was introduced to orthodontics when I came to the USA. I've been in the field of orthodontics for 10 years and enjoy interacting with patients of all ages and seeing the patient’s end result.

Scheduling Coordinator / Chairside Assistant

I worked as a chairside assistant for nine years before transitioning to the front desk, so I have the experience needed to fill both positions whenever needed. The best part of my job is watching the transformations that patients go through, and seeing how excited they are with their end results. I enjoy working with my team because everyone gets along well and we are all here to help each other. We are friends inside and out of work, too! I am married and have three children: Jaxsen, Benjamin, and Hillary. I enjoy spending time with my family, shopping, and going to the beach in the summertime.
