Meet the Ross Ortho Staff

The staff of Ross Orthodontics in Myrtle Beach SC

(S.M.I.L.E.)

  • Satisfaction is our primary goal. We will strive to make all of our patients happy. If there is a way to solve a problem—we will find it!
  • Motivation when treatment calls for patient cooperation, all communication is with a positive attitude.
  • Integrity, honesty and mutual trust are what we believe in to develop the best and most rewarding result.
  • Learning is non-stop in our office. Both Dr. Ross and the rest of the team maximize continuing education to provide state-of-the-art treatment.
  • Excellence is delivered through exceptional skills. Each staff member has completed the South Carolina Orthodontic Assistants exam or is in the preparatory stages. Dr. Ross is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics and Dr. Munn is board eligible and will soon become a Diplomate.

All clinical staff are required to pass the South Carolina Orthodontic Assistants Exam. We stay abreast of new technology (in our mission statement) so the team is required to go to state, regional, or national meetings either annually or biannually.

  • April

    Scheduling Coordinator and Receptionist

    Hey ya’ll! I am originally from Florence, South Carolina. So, I am a true southern girl. I graduated from college with a degree in business and have been working in orthodontics for 12 years now and love it. I have been married to a wonderful man named Jimi for almost 30 years. We have two grown children and a beautiful new daughter-in-law. Jimi and I enjoy fishing in Murrells Inlet and relaxing on our patio with our 14 year old shih tzu named Sarah.

  • Julia

    Orthodontic Assistant

    I am originally from California, but have been here in Myrtle Beach since 1994. My amazing husband and my son and daughter are my world. My career in the dental field began in 2004 doing general dentistry, but my heart is in orthodontics. I have been with Dr. Ross and Dr. Munn since 2007 and I absolutely love it. I always say they’ll never get rid of me! We are very fortunate to have an amazing group of girls THAT ROCK. I am definitely a summer girl and love my flops and tan skin. My boys and I are totally river rats as we live for the boat. I have a crazy big great dane named Jixer and a little yorkie, Lexi. God is amazing and I thank him daily for a great life.

  • Beverly

    Treatment Coordinator

    I have been with Ross Orthodontics since before time (actually I rode over on Noah’s Ark with the giraffes). I am proud to say and somewhat reluctantly, since it gives away too much information… that we are on our third generation of patients. Yes, seriously, can you believe that?

    Orthodontics is such a wonderful place to be. We see our kids grow up, literally! Some of our children who have had early phase treatment and then later full braces (or just observing until their permanent teeth come in) we have come to know them for 7-10 years of their life. That is the biggest change in their life that happens and it is absolutely rewarding to me! I appreciate all my kids, whether you are 5 or 85 and older, you are still my kids! I love all of you, and I am so blessed to have found something I am so passionate about and love with all my heart.

  • Michele

    Treatment Coordinator

    I have been with Ross Orthodontics since 2006. What a fantastic team we have here! I began my orthodontic training back in 1979 as a high school senior in Alaska and fell in love with it. I am one of those military brats, born and raised, which gave me some wonderful opportunities to see the world. Herman and the Hermits concert in London, belly dancing in Turkey, shopping in the Egyptian Spice Market in Istanbul which is over 2000 years old, standing on two continents at one time—Eurasia, eating real Chinese food in Taiwan, and flying small planes over the beautiful state of Alaska. My dad’s last duty station was Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage, Alaska where I met my husband of 30 years and the Lord has blessed us with three wonderful children whom I had the pleasure to homeschool. We’ve been here in Myrtle Beach for 15 years and I love the warm weather and of course the beach!

  • Lulu

    Orthodontic Assistant

    I am originally from New Castle, Pennsylvania. I have lived in Texas, Tennessee, and Washington, D.C. I have been in Myrtle Beach for about 17 years. You know what they say… I wasn’t born here, but I got here as fast as I could. My husband, David, and I have been together for ten years. I have one daughter, Chelsea, who has just recently graduated from Carolina forest High School. She is currently attending Coastal Carolina University. Before working with Ross Orthodontics, I have worked for the government in personnel and with Horry County schools as a kindergarten assistant. I have been with Dr. Ross and Dr. Munn for two years and truly enjoy working with the staff and especially our patients. I have always wanted to work in the dental field and I am happy to be in an orthodontic office. I am truly honored to work with Dr. Ross and Dr. Munn. We are the best in the business!

  • Young

    Administrative Assistant

    I started in the dental field in 1983. I graduated from dental hygiene from the Medical University of South Carolina in 1983 and started working for a pediatric dentist at Dr. Nyland’s office in Columbia for 10 years. I moved to Myrtle Beach in 1994 and worked as a fill-in hygienist before I started working orthodontics. While currently working with Dr. Ross and Dr. Munn, my role has since changed to administrative assistant. I enjoy working with our patients and being able to see the changes ending with a beautiful smile. I love the beach and water activities. Most of all, I enjoy the wonderful ladies that I work with and learn new things from them every day. How could it be any better than that!

  • Kim

    Orthodontic Assistant

    I am originally from a small town in Vermont next to Killington Ski Resort. I then moved to Myrtle Beach and very happy to be out of the snow and into the sun! I have been married to my wonderful husband for ten years. We have been blessed with two beautiful children. Katelyn, who is a great big sister and Kyle. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, wakeboarding, and horseback riding. I have been in dentistry for 18 years—11 of which have been with Dr. Ross. I truly enjoy orthodontics and love to see the huge difference a beautiful smile makes in our kids’ lives. I am very fortunate to have such a great group of friends here as well as two wonderful bosses!

  • Marsha

    Hi, my name is Marsha and I have been employed with Dr. Ross from the very beginning of his practice. I have attended the Medical College of Georgia and Columbia Tech. I have been happily married to an amazing “LSU Tiger” man for over 38 years. We have three daughters and were blessed with a wonderful grandson named Luke in 2008. I am the official “lab girl” of the office and enjoy every minute of it. In my time off, I love my Bible studies and working in my garden.

  • Lisa

    Hi! I’m originally from Westchester County, New York. I have been a “native” now of Myrtle Beach for 22 years! I married my childhood sweetheart, Anthony, for 28 years now and we have 3 children. I have been in orthodontics for 26 years. These last 22 with Dr. Ross! I’ve always enjoyed giving our patients a new smile! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with our expanding family and worshipping the sea!

    I am a true native to Myrtle Beach and graduated from West Christian Academy. I have been working with Dr. Ross since 2004.

  • Carrie

    Treatment Coordinator

    Today is a great day at Ross Orthodontics and I’m so happy to be here! I’ve been in orthodontics since 1999 and love seeing people smile. I have the pleasure of working with patients at the front desk, meeting families in the new patient exams, and working on patients as an assistant. I get to do it all! I’m very blessed to have a wonderful husband and a beautiful son. I spend my free time on the baseball field cheering for Cam and yelling for Eric’s team on the court! Rudy, my pet yorkie, loves to take me for walks!

    Bio coming soon!

  • Karen

    Orthodontic Assistant

    Hi, I’m Karen and I’m a recent arrival to Myrtle Beach. A native of Pittsburgh, PA my husband Gerry and daughter Gretchen spent 32 years in the Philadelphia area. Acknowledging that Gretchen, more than likely, would not be returning to Philadelphia after her education, we made plans to “semi-retire” to Seven Springs Ski Resort in the Laurel Highlands of western Pennsylvania. After six years of skiing, hiking, rafting, and enjoying all that the mountains had to offer, we traded it for the beach! We look forward to having Gretchen and her family visit us here. I had worked in general dentistry for 21 years before moving to orthodontics 12 years ago. I enjoy working with Dr. Ross and Dr. Munn as well as the entire staff. I’m happy to be employed at Ross Orthodontics! Oh, and our Irish Setter, Garrett, is a huge part of our lives too!
