DR. SHANE WITHEROW

Dr. Shane Witherow is our fearless leader, and we don’t know what we’d do without him.

Dr. Witherow earned his DDS in 1998 and his MS in 2001. In 2001, he founded Witherow Orthodontics and never looked back.

After all these years, it’s Dr. Witherow’s awesome patients who keep him going. Having the chance to help others is something he considers a huge blessing. He loves having the opportunity to make people smile more.

When he’s not at the office, Dr. Witherow loves spending time with his family. He and his wife Lindsie have three wonderful children named Carter, Ella, and Jack Hudson. The family wouldn’t be complete without their two dogs, a pair of lovable mutts named Charlie and Millie.

Dr. Witherow, a native and resident of Nashville, also enjoys fast cars, trips to the beach, going to sporting events and hiking.

Dr. Witherow certainly stays busy and does so much, but when it’s all said and done, his three biggest passions are his relationship with Christ, his family and work.

AMY STEIN

Registered Orthodontic Assistant

If you ask Amy what the highlight of her job is, she’ll tell you it’s helping patients achieve the perfect smile. It’s that genuine patient-first mindset that makes her such a wonderful orthodontic assistant, and it’s just one of the many reasons we’re thankful to have Amy on our team.

Amy has been working in the orthodontics field since the late 90s, and her experience has been a valuable asset for our practice.

When she’s not helping to fix smiles, Amy enjoys time off with her husband Adam and Sophie and Emmy, their two children. Daisy, the Stein’s cat, completes the family. She loves taking road trips, watching movies and hiking with her family.

Amy is an avid reader, and she makes sure to devote some of her free time to gardening and shopping.

MISSI EMMERT

Scheduling Coordinator

Melissa, or “Missi,” adds an awesome dynamic to our team, and we’re thankful for her every single day.

Missi’s favorite thing about coming to work is getting the opportunity to watch the look on a patient’s face change as their braces come off, revealing their perfect new smile for the first time.

That’s not the only thing Missi loves about work, though. She looks forward to getting to come in and work with the doctors and staff on our team. She considers the staff at Witherow Orthodontics to be her second family.

Missi is always looking to spend time with her family whenever she can. She loves her husband Rodney, her son Dalton and her daughter Brooklin very much. She also finds enough love to go around for two chocolate labs and a cat.

Missi enjoys shopping with her daughter, scrapbooking and photography. Above all else, she values her relationship with God, her children and her family.

HEATHER BRAKEFIELD

Assistant and Scheduling Coordinator

Heather is our awesome registered dental assistant and scheduling coordinator, and we consider ourselves extremely lucky to have her on our team.

She savors coming to work because she feels like changing someone’s smile can change their life. Heather loves when she has a chance to play even a small part of changing someone’s life for the better.

This Mount Juliet native (and current resident) loves her husband Chris, their two children Delaney and Hunter and the family chihuahua Snickers.

When she’s not at the office, Heather stays busy. She loves spending time outside, whether she’s watching her daughter play softball, hunting or fishing. She also traveling, reading, cooking and baking.
