Meet Our Team

CLAUDIAClaudia, Patient Care Coordinator

I was a patient of Dr. Nagel’s before I came to work here. In fact, his enthusiasm for orthodontia and his genuine regard for his patients initially attracted me to pursue working here professionally. Since joining the team in 2002, I have shared in the joy of creating beautiful, lasting smiles. Most of what I do is administrative – scheduling appointments and ensuring smooth patient flow – while enjoying the relational atmosphere of a family practice. First and foremost though, I am a mom and wife. So, when I am not at the office, I am with my wonderful family.


MelissaMelissa, Patient Care Coordinator

Since moving to Simi Valley, I have heard amazing things about Nagel Orthodontics. When the opportunity arose to work in the front office and be apart of the father - son practice and team I jumped at the chance. My job is to ensure our patients are satisfied with their orthodontic experience, both in the office and over the phone. I love that I get to see our patients as they progress through treatment, and I enjoy seeing their self-confidence grow with each visit.

When I’m not at work, I am with my family, going to concerts and hanging out with my friends.

MayMahnaz, Registered Dental Assistant, Specialized Orthodontic Assistant

I have always been interested in the dental field, and working here at Nagel Orthodontics has given me that opportunity. Before I moved to the United States, I earned my bachelor’s degree in educational science in Iran. With this degree, I worked as an elementary school teacher. When I moved to the U.S., I continued teaching as a substitute. When the job arose at Nagel Orthodontics, I was very eager and excited to begin. Working here has given me a lot of great experience in the dental field.


Carol, Registered Dental Assistant

I have been in the orthodontic field since 1997. I started off as a Sterilizer Operator and that peaked my interest in learning to assist and create beautiful smiles, so I continued working and received my license as a Registered Dental Assistant (RDA) in 2001. I started working for Nagel Orthodontics in March 2016, and my experience with Drs. Norman and Jeffrey Nagel has been amazing. Nagel Orthodontics extends a warm, family-friendly atmosphere not only among the staff members, but with our patients as well. I admire the way both doctors approach their patients, with a smile and kindness. They are always professional. I'm looking forward to meeting and working with all current and future patients, building confidence with every visit as we create not only a beautiful smile, but great memories along the way. When I'm not with my work family, you'll find me spending time with my three children. We love spending time outdoors, dining out, and hitting the movies on our down time!

Linda, Insurance Coordinator

I was introduced to Nagel Orthodontics through a referral from a friend. After listening to her rave about Dr. Nagel, my children soon became patients there. I was impressed with not only the amazing results, but also the personal care and commitment of the doctors and staff. They truly treat every patient like family. I was excited when the opportunity arose for me to join their amazing team. My job in the office is to help patients understand the insurance process. I serve as the liaison between the family and their insurance company. However, my favorite part of working at Nagel Orthodontics is seeing patients walk out with big smiles on their faces after getting their braces off.
