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.

Administration Team


I began working with Dr. Furlong in 2001 as our insurance coordinator and part 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 are 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 cheerleaders at Jackson Memorial High School and on Pop-Warner!



I began working with Dr. Furlong in August 2013 as part of the administrative team and the marketing coordinator. My duties include scheduling patients, providing a positive customer experience, and assisting Dr. Furlong in marketing the practice to general dentists, schools, and the general public. I love interacting will all our patients and their families. It’s wonderful seeing the amazing smile transformations.

In 2014, I became an adult orthodontic patient and completed my treatment in 2016. Prior to braces, I was very self-conscious about the spacing between my front teeth and dreaded smiling. Today, I couldn’t be any happier with the results. I now have a beautiful smile I am proud to show off.

When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have been married to my college sweetheart for more than 20 years and we have two children, Jordan and Joshua. We enjoy traveling, DIY home improvements, and deep sea fishing.



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.


Treatment Team


Geri, CDA, RDA

I have been working with Dr. Furlong and in the orthodontic/dental field since 2009. As a clinical coordinator, I am responsible for overseeing the treatment area and making sure that each patient’s treatment runs smoothly and they have a positive experience each visit. I love orthodontics because I get to be one on one with my patients and in return often gain lasting friendships. It’s so rewarding to help them achieve amazing smiles!

Here at Jackson Orthodontics, we are a family that works well together. Each of us has our own personalities and talents, which makes each one of a valuable asset to the team.

In my free time, I enjoy shopping, cheering for the Philadelphia Eagles, spending weekends with family and friends, and hanging out with my yorkie Brody.

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

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 boyfriend 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 who is ten and Benjamin who is three. My husband of seven years 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, and our adorable cats Sammy and JJ.

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 Cooper. 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.
