Hi! I am Trevor, and I’m the office manager. I’m Dr. Comella’s right-hand man and I love to assist all the staff in the office. I am a Shiba Inu and you can frequently find me in the office greeting you as you enter the waiting room. I have a special place in my heart for Beggin’ Strips; they are my favorite snack. See you soon!

It is my goal to make you as comfortable as possible when you begin the rewarding adventure of orthodontic treatment with us.

During this visit, I help Dr. Comella with the clinical exam and review all treatment recommendations and financial options available. Please feel free to call me at any time if you have any questions as you get started with us in our fun office.

My husband David and I live in Penfield and have four children: Kristin, Jaclyn, John, and Alex. Our youngest son, Alex, is off to Kent State this year and we are looking forward to many road trips to Ohio in the coming years.

Lisa

Clinical Assistant 

Orthodontics is more than straightening teeth; it is a journey to a patient’s happiness. Seeing patients smile, laugh, and even cry from the excitement of when they finish their treatment of hard work and striking results is priceless. These moments make me love my job of orthodontic assistant over and over again. In addition to assisting Dr. Comella and Dr. Molisani and being part of a great team, we take the time to ensure our patients are well informed about treatment and answer any concerns they have. I feel proud to work with people who truly care so much about their patients’ happiness.

My husband David and I live in Livonia. We enjoy our property with acres of hiking trails, many different gardens, and the beauty of Mother Nature. In my free time, I enjoy reading, hiking, water aerobics, and traveling. I also love to cook and bake and share new recipes with friends and family. So my home life and life at the office are “happy smiles, happy people”!

Alex

Clinical Assistant

Hey guys! My name is Alexandra. I have been happily working with Dr. Comella, Dr. Molisani, and the team for over a year now. My number-one goal is to make sure my patients are as comfortable as possible throughout their treatment. I also try to make sure they have a fun experience at every appointment. It’s always my job to make sure everyone is smiling. I grew up in Ontario and graduated from Wayne Central. I then furthered my education at MCC where I earned my degree as a dental hygienist. Please feel free to contact me via email at anytime if you ever have any questions or concerns.

When I’m not at work, I am usually at the gym, playing sports, or spending time with my family and my doggy, Jake. I enjoy going out with my girlfriends and traveling with my boyfriend. I love adventures and am willing to do just about anything that comes my way!

Sheila

Clinical Assistant

Hello! I joined Team Comella as an orthodontic assistant in June 2013. For me, orthodontics is interesting, fulfilling, and fun! My goal is to greet you with enthusiasm, get to know you, and make your experience here truly positive. Since my background is in dental hygiene, helping you maintain optimum oral health during your orthodontic treatment is especially important to me. I received my associate’s degree from Monroe Community College in 1995, and continue to maintain my license as a NYS registered dental hygienist.

Though I grew up in San Diego, my family originates here in Western New York, where I moved 22 years ago. I lived in both Wayland and Webster before settling in Fairport for the last 17 years. My daughter Madison is starting high school this year, and my son Michael is in middle school. Most of my spare time is spent at the baseball fields or at dance competitions. We love camping in our pop-up, playing musical instruments, the arts, Saturday excursions to the Rochester Public Market, and the many local festivals our area has to offer.

This includes setting up the initial financial arrangements that will work within your budget and answering any financial questions you may have. I also can help with your insurance, including submitting all claim forms. I work closely with Joan and the rest of our team after your initial consultation to make your whole experience a pleasant one. I look forward to working with you!
