I have been practicing orthodontics in Johnson City since 2002, and have truly enjoyed each day. I feel fortunate to be able to get to know my patients and their families during their time in treatment. Improving our patients' smiles and self esteem makes my job very rewarding.
Education and Continuing Education
I am a Johnson City native, and graduated from Science Hill High School. I then attended the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, where I received my Bachelor of Science in engineering. Afterwards, I went on to the University of Tennessee Dental School, where I earned my DDS. I also completed my Orthodontic Residency at UT.
I keep current with the newest technology and orthodontic treatment methods through continuing education courses and professional meetings. I see it as an essential part of my job to stay up to date with new technology. I have traveled across the country attending seminars. I am also able to watch lectures over the internet and listen by teleconference.
I am a member of the following professional associations:
American Association of Orthodontist
American Dental Association
Diplomate, American Board of Orthodontics
Children's Special Services
In the Office
I want to make your time in treatment the best it can be for both the patient and family. We have a comfortable environment with friendly staff and doctors. If we can ever do anything for you, please let us know. We have coffee and snacks available, and also wireless internet if you want to use your laptop computer. We use state of the art equipment, including digital X-rays, which give off lower amounts of radiation. Computers at each treatment chair allow patients to watch TV while the staff and I work on making their smiles beautiful!
At home, I have a daughter, Sydney, and our dog Beau. In my spare time, I enjoy playing golf and tennis. Sydney also likes to play golf. I love it when we are able to play together, although I think her favorite part is driving the cart. I am also a member of the Heritage Church.
I have been in the business of making beautiful smiles since 1985. I still get a thrill and a tremendous amount of satisfaction in finishing treatment, especially a complicated one. The relieved and happy smiles of my patients make my job truly meaningful.
In the Office
I came to an orthodontic practice in 1985 that was established with two of the most competent and caring orthodontists in this area. Dr. Miller was the senior partner and had been practicing since 1955. Dr. John Bradshaw started practicing with Dr. Miller in 1969. When I came to this practice in 1985, I had two mentors that had many years of experience to guide me. The opportunity to learn from these two orthodontists was as valuable if not more valuable than my formal education.
Dr. Miller retired in 1993 and in 2002 Dr. Daniel Bradshaw began practicing with his father and me. Danny was an outstanding addition to this orthodontic office. I have been fortunate to be surrounded by caring people that are also quality orthodontists.
The philosophy in this office has always been to deliver the most outstanding treatment that the situation would allow and to deliver treatment in a compassionate and caring atmosphere. Although no group can be perfect, we encourage all of our team to treat every patient professionally and with kindness.

As part of my continuing education, I am an active member of the following professional organizations:

Education and Continuing Education
For my education, I am a Tar Heel through and through! I attended the University of North Carolina for my Undergraduate Degree, Dental School and my Orthodontic Residency.

As the office manager, I assist patients with questions regarding appointments, finances, and office related questions. I love people and the opportunity to get to know a little something about them. I enjoy making people feel important, and their excitement as they begin to see treatment results is very rewarding! I love the outdoors, traveling to new and exciting places, and being an active member at Unaka Avenue Baptist Church.
I have worked in orthodontics for 30 years, and currently help the doctors chair-side as a registered orthodontic assistant. I enjoy learning new and different techniques to improve your smile. I like seeing not only a positive change in patients' smiles, but sometimes their overall well being! I have two grown children named Jeremy and Samantha. I love music, and play the flute in the Johnson City Concert Band as well as the handbells at church.
I have worked with Drs. Bradshaw and Hathaway for eight years now! The first four years were as an assistant, and now I’ve spent four years in the front office as the insurance and financial coordinator. I'm one of the first people you meet, so I try to make you feel comfortable and help you understand the process of achieving a great smile! At home, I have three wonderful children whom I cherish.

I spend as much time with my family as possible. I also enjoy spending time with friends and I love to travel when the opportunity arises.
Hi there! I have been working as an orthodontic assistant for BHB for 3 years. I feel the most important part of interacting with our patients is eliminating any fears they have by understanding, informing and answering questions before treatment begins. I want them to feel safe and comfortable. I am married and have two children. In my spare time I enjoy cooking.
I am a registered orthodontic assistant and I enjoy getting to know the patients on a personal level and becoming their friend. I love watching their smiles change and seeing them gain self-confidence and self-esteem. It is gratifying to see the excited smiles on the day they get their braces off and they realize it was all worthwhile! Drs. Bradshaw and Hathaway are the best people I have ever worked for. They treat patients with respect and honesty! Outside of work, I love nothing better than spending time with my husband, Rick. I love the hot summertime and doing anything outside.
My favorite part of being an orthodontic assistant is getting to know my patients on a personal level and building a relationship with them through treatment. When interacting with patients I feel it is important to treat them as if they were my own children, giving them gentle care. I have been married for 15 years and we have two boys and a maltipoo named Dixie!
As an orthodontic assistant, I relate well with our younger patients; they remind me of my son, Logan. My job is never boring because each child is special in their own way. I especially enjoy when it's time for their braces to come off and seeing what beautiful smiles they have! Logan keeps my husband and I very busy as he plays most sports
I’m a registered orthodontic assistant here, and I try to make all patients feel that their treatment is personalized to their specific needs and goals. My job has really gotten exciting with the new office! We utilize the most innovated products and treatment plans, and it’s great to learn so many new things that help our patients. When I’m at home, I love spending time with my husband and our many pets! We have a German Sheppards and three cats.
