Tricia - Treatment Coordinator
As Dr. Meharg’s treatment coordinator, I have the privilege of introducing our new patients to the practice. At the first visit I will spend time getting to know you and your orthodontic needs. After a full evaluation by Dr. Meharg, I will answer any questions you may have regarding the treatment recommendation and will review the financial plans available to best meet your needs.
On my time off I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends on Conesus Lake.
Deb - Financial Coordinator
I joined Dr. Meharg’s team in February 2004. My past experience at an insurance company has been very helpful in assisting patients with their insurance questions. I live with my husband, Rich. We share our home with our 8-year-old Catahoula Leopard dog named Marley.
I enjoy taking road trips to visit my son in North Carolina where he is attending college.
Christine - Scheduling Coordinator
I have been with Dr. Meharg since January 2002. I am a graduate of Monroe Community College where I received my Dental Assisting Certificate. I am a licensed Certified Dental Assistant. I love the orthodontic field and look forward to each day with our current patients, as well as meeting all the new ones.
I have a 16-year-old daughter who is my pride and joy. A few of my favorite things are cheesecake and the color pink.
Rita - Dental Hygienist
I was born and raised in Syracuse. I am a 1967 graduate of OCC’s School of Dental Hygiene and have worked in the orthodontic field for 39 years. For two years, I was also on the clinical staff at OCC, teaching future hygienists the craft I have loved for so many years.
In my spare time, my husband and I enjoy traveling, playing golf and attending sporting events. Most of all, we enjoy spending time with our family and friends.
Sherri - Clinical Assistant
Each day is new and exciting working as a certified dental assistant in the orthodontic field. Being in the Syracuse area all my life, I've watched Franklin Square transform and am proud to be a part of it. Currently I live in Baldwinsville with my brood - 2 beautiful daughters, 2 cats and a fish. I spend most days around the house, yard or gym when I am not driving the girls to activities. My favorite days are spent reading and relaxing with a nice glass of wine or enjoying the company of good friends.
Larmi - Certified Dental Assistant
I grew up in northern Minnesota and have lived in and out of the Syracuse area since 1991. I started in dentistry in 1994 and worked with Dr. Meharg from 2002-2006. In May of 2012 I returned to Franklin Square Orthodontics after several years as CEO of Weakley Corp. I rarely have spare time after volunteering at my kids schools or traveling to their multiple sports functions. I do, however, enjoy working out, golf and travel. Mostly, I love being with my happy healthy family and wonderful supportive friends.
Dick - Laboratory Technician
I am a native of Syracuse and spent four years as a dental technician in the United States Air Force. I gained my experience in orthodontics working for an orthodontist for two years. After leaving the Air Force, I worked as a motion picture projectionist before returning to the orthodontic field, approximately 27 years ago. I have been with Dr. Meharg for 10 years.
In my spare time, I enjoy golfing and am an avid sports fan. My favorite TV show is “Desperate Housewives.”
As Dr. Meharg’s wife, I’ve been on his team since the beginning, before there was orthodontics, at least for us. Sometimes, you might hear my voice as the fill-in scheduling coordinator or financial coordinator. I have done many of the quilts in the office, and I make quilts and teach others to make them when I have some spare time. Michael and I love to travel and visit our adult children in Altamont, New York and Burlington, Vermont.
