ORTHODONTIC ASSISTANT and laboratory coordinator
Celena is a Cherokee County resident, and has been a certified orthodontic assistant for 25 years. She joined us recently after a tragic loss of her long time leader Dr. Jernigan. She hails from the Macedonia community where she has lived her entire life. Married for 20 years to Brandon, she has two lovely boys Brodie and Brayden. Brodie will attend college next year and is deciding between Georgia Tech and UGA — a tough decision we are sure. Brodie plays football for Creekview High. She loves to sport her green and blue on the weekends, but also likes to watch UGA football and wear the red and black. Her favorite thing about her job is to catch up with patients about their extracurricular activities like sports, band, clubs, art, etc. She loves getting to know her patients on a personal level. She is gentle and kind with patients and everyone loves her positive spirits in the office. Outside of work and her sons’ sports, she enjoys spending time with her friends, family, and her Jack Russell named PJ. Her husband Brandon does say PJ is like her baby — and we think he’s adorable too!
