AJ Deocares – Treatment Coordinator


My name is AJ and I am the office treatment coordinator. I have been working for Heller Orthodontics since 2006. I’m proud to be a member of such an outgoing and friendly team. The best part of working in the orthodontic field is the opportunity to meet such wonderful patients, their parents and other family members from all around Bethesda.

My husband and I are blessed with two beautiful boys, George and Sebastian. On weekends, we enjoy spending quality time together. We all love football and are BIG fans of the Baltimore RAVENS!
