Linda – Office Manager
I have been in the orthodontic field for almost thirty years. I am a graduate of the Berdan Institute for Dental Assisting. After working in all areas of our office, I have found my home as the Office Manager. It has been rewarding to be a part of changing peoples lives. Over the years, I have become close to the patients and their families. I am proud to work with Dr. Akkaway and our friendly staff. I feel confident that patients feel ‘at home’ in our office while receiving outstanding care.
My family includes my husband, two sons, one daughter, one grandson and another ‘on the way’. When I am not working, I love spending time with my children and large family. I enjoy the outdoors, gardening, kayaking, quadding and hiking. I also love cooking, theatre and music. During summer, I spend most of my time boating and fishing at the Jersey Shore.
Linn – Treatment Coordinator
I’ve worked in the dental field for over 25 years including 10 years in orthodontics. I hold a current x-ray license and I’m CPR certified. I help make sure the office runs smoothly and efficiently and the needs of everyone are met. There is nothing I enjoy more than seeing a big smile on a patient’s face when treatment is complete. My job is so rewarding because I see the positive effect that our care has on people’s lives.
I’m happily married and we live with our dog Chloe in Stockholm. I enjoy gardening, fishing, traveling, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
