At Dr. Schafer Orthodontics we work hard to make you feel right at home. We put your needs first all the while achieving efficient and comprehensive treatment. Our staff is well trained and highly skilled. We strive to provide superlative service to each patient at every visit with us.

Katie – Office manager

When I began working for Dr. Schafer in 2000, I was a clinical orthodontic assistant. I currently am the financial and scheduling coordinator. I strive each day to make your visit to our office as pleasant and enjoyable as possible. My goal is to have each patient and parent leave happy and pleased with our staff.

In my free time, I try to spend as much time as possible with my daughter, Carson. She recently obtained her Master's Degree in Occupational Therapy at Ithaca College and has begun her full time career. As a family, we enjoy traveling and trying new cuisines. I also love spending time with my two Goldendoodles, Piper and Bentley. I look forward to the times I can walk for fitness, ski, work in my yard or relax with a good book.

Sandra – Clinical Assistant

My name is Sandra Briggs. I was born and raised in Cohocton where I now own a home with my husband and our four children Eythan, Caitlyn, Jayce, and Kyle.
We as a family have always enjoyed spending our free time at our kids many different sporting events. We also love to camp for most of the spring, summer, and fall seasons. 
During the winter months we build a backyard ice rink where we spend a lot of time with family and friends. 
I have been a part of Dr. Schafer’s Orthodontic team for 6 years. It has been great getting to know the faces and families of our community as well as the surrounding communities.

Nicole - Clinical Assistant

My name is Nicole. I was born and raised in Dansville and currently live on Poags Hole with my lifetime companion, Curtis, our daughter Riley, and our dog daisy.

We enjoy kayaking, motorcycle rides, picnics, and sunshine. When the weather turns cold we bundle up and play in the snow or stay inside and enjoy the warmth.

I had orthodontic treatment as a teenager, but never realized everything that goes in to changing a smile. I love my job as an orthodontic assistance and am looking forward to being part of a team that changes smiles everyday. 

Piper and Bentley

Upon arriving at our office, you will find one of these gorgeous golden doodles waiting to greet you with a wagging tail. Piper and Bentley bring love, calmness, entertainment, and positive energy to the office each day! They enjoy being rewarded for their good behavior from their treat jar.
