Each member of our treatment team is a registered assistant and they have all worked together as a team for years to create an orthodontic family. Our office is different because we pride ourselves on not being a revolving door with inexperienced staff.
Sarah Ringen – Front Desk
Sarah has been in dentistry since 1995 and has worked in general dentistry, periodontics, endodontics, and finally in orthodontics since 1997. Before Dr. Pagan, Sarah even worked here with Dr. Shilling. Sarah will most likely be the first person you talk to when you call to schedule your initial consultation. She does all of our insurance and financial contracts and is the professional coordinator, coordinating your orthodontic treatment with your general dentist. She enjoys taking her little boys on outings and scrap booking all the photos she takes.
Jen Logan – Assistant
Jen has worked as a chairside assistant since 2001. She joined our team for a time in 2006 splitting time between us and the general dentist she worked for and then re-joined us in 2012.

Jen excels as an orthodontic assistant and is one of the first people you will meet in your exam with Dr. Pagan.
