Susan Coffey - Instructor for Orthodontic Clinical Assisting Course

Susan is a Registered Dental Assistant that specializes in Orthodontics. She began her orthodontic career in a real orthodontic office, then moving into a GP office, Susan began to understand the difference between the two philosophies. Still active in assisting doctors in multiple offices, she continues to learn and find creative new ways to enhance orthodontics for the patients.

Not only a chair-side assistant in the Dallas area, Susan is blessed to be able to share her love and knowledge of orthodontics in continue education courses with Dr. Brad Williams. She understands the importance of having empowered assistants and as a detail-oriented person, Susan will motivate her students to return to their offices and be able to support their doctors in making orthodontics successful.

Susan would have never started her teaching career many years ago without the encouragement and support from Dr. David Jackson and was honored to learn from such a gifted teacher, supportive boss and amazing person.
