New Patient Coordinator
Hi there, my name is Gigi and I am the new patient coordinator. I have worked at Petty & Bielik for more than five years. I love that the doctors are very unique in their own special way. They treat every patient as a special individual. I also love building a relationship with the patients and their parents.

It’s so much fun to watch patients progress through their orthodontic treatment and see the end result. What I love about my patients is the innocence when it comes to the children and the perseverance in the adults.
