Sami is our records coordinator and is the first smiling face you will see when you walk into Papandreas Orthodontics.
Sami loves forming strong relationships with patients and working hand in hand with them throughout their orthodontic treatment. Our Invisalign patients find her especially easy to relate to since she went through the clear aligner treatment process too and understands their concerns and experiences during treatment.
A self-described “crazy cat lady,” Sami is the proud mom to two adorable, chubby little cats and enjoys spending as much time with them as possible. She’s also extremely devoted to her human family as well and enjoys her role as the “cool aunt” to her niece and nephew, who she describes as, “literally my life.”
Samantha is one of the newest members of the Papandreas Orthodontic family and is our Community Relations Coordinator. In addition to scheduling patients’ appointments, Samantha also oversees the marketing of our orthodontic practice.
FUN FACT: Many years before Samantha joined our team, she was actually a patient of Dr. Papandreas so she knows first hand what the orthodontic treatment process is like and is really able to connect with our patients as a result. Speaking on her unique perspective, Samantha says, “I have now seen both sides of the office with having patient care done for myself and also seeing our patients experience it as well, so that’s pretty cool.”
I realized I was interested in dentistry when at 9 years old I started going to work with my Aunt who was in the profession. The patients needed her help and they did everything as a team, always finishing with a smile on their face. This was my inspiration!
I went to school at North Royalton High School and with hard work was able to study dentistry at Cuyahoga Valley Career Center. The center had an amazing teacher who lead me to an amazing orthodontic practice. What I love most about being at Papandreas Orthodontics is the ability to see the progress of spectacular smiles while visiting with my patients at the chair. Outside of the office I love being outside and enjoying nature!
The Papandreas Team is really YOUR Team! We believe that everyone deserves the confidence, joy and quality of life that come with a healthy, beautiful smile. We know that a gorgeous smile has the power to change your life because we see the change it makes in our patients every day. We just can’t help it – we’re thinking about smiles 24/7/365!
From your first consultation to the day you walk out with your beautiful new smile, we want to be the best part of your day! We know it’s a privilege that you have chosen us for your treatment – and it’s one we take very seriously.
