Meet the Team

We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.

Administrative Team


I began working with Dr. Furlong in 2001 as the Insurance Coordinator and a member of the administrative team. Each day, I have the opportunity to interact with more than 50 patients and their families, a part of my position that I really love. There is always something exciting going on in our office!

One thing that sets us apart is our team. Our orthodontists are fabulous at creating beautiful smiles! You cannot ask for a better team of people to work with—everyone is well educated in their fields and gives our patients great experiences in our office!

I am married to my high school sweetheart. We have two teenage boys who were both patients of Jackson Orthodontics. We also have one of the cutest longhaired Dachshunds you will ever see! I dabble in interior design and thoroughly enjoy upholstery! Something interesting about me that you may be surprised to know: Dr. Furlong and I are childhood friends. We were both cheerleaders at Jackson Memorial High School and on Pop-Warner!



I began working for Dr. Furlong in 2009. I first met Dr. Furlong when she began her career more than 20 years ago while working in another office. My position in the office is the financial coordinator. I take care of the financial aspects of our patients’ treatment. Every day, our team and I begin with a goal to make our patients’ treatment far surpass their expectations. I am glad to share in the positive efforts and dedication that each team member contributes to make Jackson Orthodontics a healthy and fun environment for our patients and one another.

I reside in Jackson with my husband Walter. We have two beautiful daughters, Stacey and Katie, and two beautiful grandchildren, Maks and Julian. When I am not shopping or decorating, you may find me vacationing in the Caribbean, spending time with friends and family, or trying out new recipes.



I joined Dr. Furlong’s team in April of 2018 as the Record’s and Sterilization Technician. I was responsible for taking x-rays and photos of our patients.  This gave me the opportunity to interact with so many of our patients before they started their appointments with the rest of our team. As of 2021, I am now a member of our Administrative team.  I love being able to learn more about our patients and seeing their smiles transform with each visit. 

I am married, a Jackson resident, and the mother of five children who I am so proud to call mine.  Two of my children, twin boys, are current patients at our office.  I cannot wait to see the wonderful results of Dr. Furlong’s orthodontic treatment.  I also recently became a first-time grandmother.  We are always heading in different directions but when we have down time, my husband and I like to relax on the beach.


Treatment Team

Alex, CDA, RDA

I began working with Dr. Furlong in 2013. I have been in the dental/orthodontic field since 2009 and am a Certified and Registered Dental Assistant. I love the beautiful results and smiles we see on our patients every day.

My family includes my husband Ryan, my twins Aubree and Beckham, and my two stepdaughters Kailynn and Carley. When I’m not at Jackson Orthodontics, you may find me enjoying Sunday brunches or dinners with my family, or spending lots of time with my babies!

Something interesting that you may not know about me is that I graduated from Jackson Memorial High School in 2009. I played both varsity lacrosse and field hockey.

Jessica M., CDA, RDA

I joined Dr. Furlong’s team in 2015. I worked in a general dental office for a few years before finding my niche in the orthodontic field! I love working alongside our doctors and team to help our patients’ smiles transform into something extraordinary!

My family consists of my mom, dad, younger sister (who is my best friend), and my husband John. In my spare time, if I’m not with my family, I love going on motorcycle rides with John, cooking, and shopping! Some interesting facts that you may not know about me include that I love Halloween, drive a Dodge Challenger, and my favorite food is Mexican!

Christina, RDA

I have been a RDA in a general dentistry office for more than ten years and joined Jackson Orthodontics in 2015. It is my pleasure to work closely with patients every day, doing adjustments, taking records, and coordinating our inventory.

Our doctors are amazing—they are extremely passionate about what they do which reflects in their work and success. My team reaps the benefits of working in such a positive environment, which enables us to always want to go the extra mile in everything we do! We are here to help and serve one another.

I am a mom of two beautiful children, Jada and Benjamin. My husband and I have our own business in wholefood nutrition, helping families get to and stay their healthiest. We are active in our local church as leaders of the young adult ministry, always seeking to serve where we can to make a difference. We love traveling and we are foodies who love to eat!

Treatment Coordinators

Shannon, CDA, COA, RDA

I have been working with Dr. Furlong since 2002 and in the orthodontic field since 1996. I am a certified and registered dental assistant, as well as a certified orthodontic assistant. I was Dr. Furlong’s clinical coordinator for many years, and decided that it was time I took my orthodontic knowledge out of the treatment area, and apply that knowledge into the new patient consultation. I had an early phase of treatment when I was eight. I had a great experience with braces and enjoy giving other children and adults the same.

My family includes my husband Tony, my daughter Nina, and my dog Jet (who was named after our favorite sports team). My hobbies when I am not at work include fitness and shopping. I also love to spend time with my family and enjoy going to the beach.


I joined Dr. Furlong’s team in 2012 and began working in the dental field in 1999. I am one of the treatment coordinators, as well as part of the administrative team. I am glad to be part of this wonderful team of women, who I work alongside each day.

I grew up in Brooklyn, New York and moved to New Jersey in 2009. My family includes my husband Larry, our two beautiful daughters Courtney and Briana.

When I am not in the office, you may find me at a Bon Jovi concert, listening to 80’s music, or spending time with my family. I also enjoy doing craft projects, gardening, and decorating my home.

Office Manager

Wanda, RDA

I have been working with Dr. Furlong since 1997, and we opened Jackson Orthodontics together in 2001. When I started with Dr. Furlong, I was one of her assistants. Later on, I tried my hat at all other aspects of the office until I found my home as the office manager. In my opinion, orthodontics is the most rewarding of the dental fields. You become close with the patients and their families since you see them for more frequent visits than their general dentist. Witnessing the transformation in our patients throughout their treatment is the most amazing thing.

My family includes my husband Wally, my three sons Walter, Maximillian, and Sam, and my dog Theo. I enjoy decorating my house, shopping, cooking, being involved with my boys and their sports and activities, and spending time with my family and friends.
