Jodi began her journey with Dr. Schwitz as a child. Her orthodontic treatment plan was extensive, and included a palatal expander, headgear, extractions, and braces. Jodi’s desire to help others receive exceptional orthodontic care and outstanding results led to her career as an orthodontic assistant. Having been self-conscious about her smile before Dr. Schwitz treated her, Jodi understands the positive impact orthodontic treatment has on a patient’s confidence. She demonstrates caring empathy to the children she assists in treating and is committed to her work. Jodi plays an important role in the training and education of our office’s clinical orthodontic assistants.

Jodi enjoys celebrating the day of brace removal with the patients. She loves seeing our patients become confident in their new and improved smile and excited to share it with the world! She also enjoys watching children grow during the very exciting time of adolescence.

Not only was Jodi a patient of Dr. Schwitz, but her nephew and cousins are as well!  Jodi's son Michael, also a patient of Dr. Schwitz, is enjoying high school with a new smile!   Her free time is spent enjoying time with her husband Mike and son Michael. Jodi can be found on the beach or paddling at the beautiful Jersey Shore in the summer.
