Hola, My name is Britney, I am the treatment coordinator and have been in the field of orthodontics with Dr. King for over ten years. I really enjoy training others, working with patients and connecting with them at each appointment.  Best of all, I get to learn something new every day.    It is a wonderful experience to watch how we can improve people’s smiles.  On my own time, I keep busy with my family and our new baby boy Kyler.  I love being outdoors and jogging with my dog!!  I couldn’t be happier with my team, or should I say, my second family.

Meet WhitneyHi, my name is Whitney Palko and I am the billing coordinator at Dr. King’s office. I have been a part of this awesome team for 2 years now. I absolutely love coming to work here and being a part of this team. We are like family here and we truly care for our patients. The best part of working in Ortho is seeing our patients progress throughout treatment and leave with a new, confident smile. When I’m not in the office I’m spending time with my wonderful husband and my sweet baby boy.

Hello, My name is Victoria! I graduated Dental Assisting school in 2015, and have been working alongside Dr.King ever since. I previously attended Virginia Wesleyan College where I studied Biology and played Women’s Volleyball. The main reason I love my job is because I am able to connect with every patient in a different way, and I enjoy watching most of the kids grow up into young adults and then getting to see their new smiles in the end! In my spare time I enjoy attending concerts, hanging out with friends and family, playing volleyball, and also playing fetch with my cat Pipi! ♥


Hello, My name is Taylor! I graduated dental assisting school in 2014, and began working for Dr.King in April 2016. I love connecting with our patients and watching their expressions when getting there braces off and seeing their beautiful smiles! Nothing feels better than helping people feel more confident about themselves. In my spare time I love going on adventures with my dog, Vanna!


My name is Jessica Bowling.  I’m the newest member of Dr. King’s team.  I finished dental assisting school in the fall of 2013.  I also have a beautiful little girl who I spend all of my spare time with.


♥ Jessica was a member of our team for a little over a year. In that short time she touched every one of our hearts. She was more than a friend to us, she was family. Her bright smile and crazy antics lit up our office everyday. Jessica was not only loved by our team but also by our patients. July 1, 1994- April 17, 2015. You will forever be missed. ♥
