Dr. Jay Lang

Hello, I’m Dr. Jay Lang. Though I can hardly believe it, I’ve been a dentist for nearly 20 years. I have had the honor of serving as an endodontist at Orchard Endodontics for 10 years. My perfect career combination is owning a dental practice and caring for the health of others. Root canals may sound scary, but my patients often fall asleep during their treatment. That’s when I know I am doing my job well (and it happens more than you might think).  I met my amazing wife Michelle at Michigan State University. We have three wonderful children: our daughters Emerson and Avery, and our son Jackson. We have a very energetic Weimaraner, Murphy. I am a huge MSU sports fan, and in the fall, you will find us tailgating at Spartan Stadium. I love boating, skiing, and coaching my kids in soccer. I am so fortunate to work with the amazing people at Orchard Endodontics—we are more like family than co-workers. But like all families, we do have our moments: Dr. Daws is no longer allowed to cook at the office after the “Crabcake Incident”.

 

 

 


 

Dr. Timothy Daws

I’m Dr. Timothy Daws, but everyone calls me TJ. I became an endodontist because I enjoy working hands-on with my patients, especially when I get to alleviate their pain and suffering. I recently married my wife, Nina. We live in Rochester with our dog, Bijou. I come from a very dentally inclined family—my wife and my father are dentists, and my brother is an oral surgery resident. I have been an active soccer player until very recently (I’m currently on the bench rehabbing an injured big toe). I am excited to recover and get back on the pitch in the near future. When I’m not playing soccer, I enjoy mountain biking and skiing with my wife. Although we don’t see eye to eye when it comes to college football or our favorite color, I am grateful to practice with Dr. Lang at Orchard Endodontics, as we are truly in lock-step when it comes to patient care and office culture.

 

 

 

 


 

Lydia

I have been the insurance specialist at Orchard Endodontics for over a year and have more than 20 years of experience in endodontics. I enjoy doing crafts, gardening, and being outdoors. I’ve been married for 30 years to my husband Jim. I have one son and one stepdaughter. If I wasn’t at Orchard Endodontics, I would be camping!

 

 


 

Britney

I have worked in the front office for nearly five years. We are often reminded of the power of the work that we do when our patients bring us treats to thank us—that always makes me feel wonderful. I really enjoy working with Dr. Lang and Dr. Daws—they’re a great duo! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Brian, and my two boys, Jaxon and Charlie. My cats, Cake and Luey, are boys, too! Look for me at the Mackinac to Port Huron sailboat race cheering Brian on!

 

 


 

Dayna

I work at the front desk at Orchard Endodontics. I genuinely enjoy working in this profession because you never know who you are going to meet. My first week here I met a patient in a surprising way. Being new, I practiced what I was supposed to say to a referring dentist. But, I accidentally called my patient instead of her dentist. We got a good laugh out of it because she was sitting in the waiting room! The experience was so funny that she wasn’t nervous for her root canal after that. Appreciating and celebrating the positive in life is very important to me. When I’m not at Orchard Endodontics, you will find me volunteering for the Crisis Text Line, listening to podcasts or TED talks, or spending time with my boyfriend.

 


 

Mandi

I am a dental assistant at Orchard Endodontics. The best part about working with Dr. Lang and Dr. Daws is being able to help others. I especially cherish the experience of helping our anxious patients, and it’s incredibly gratifying to be part of their excellent experience and outstanding result. My wonderful husband Travis and I have two amazing boys, Cooper and Caden. I am a fur mom to an independent, stubborn kitten, too—his name is Kevin. I love to doodle and draw in my spare time.

 

 


 

Alyssa

I am a dental assistant at Orchard Endodontics. My favorite thing about my job is making my patients smile. One patient in particular, a young girl, had an awesome experience—and she said Mandi and I looked like Anna and Elsa from Frozen. As she was leaving, she told us she wished she could come back more often! I have five sisters and two brothers—I love spending time with my big family, especially being out on the water. If you need a laugh, ask me about the time the power went out and Dr. Lang got soaked from the pipes!

 

 


 

Laura

I’ve been a dental assistant at Orchard Endodontics for four years and began my career 16 years ago. I love my time working with Dr. Lang, Dr. Daws, and our amazing patients. When I’m not working, you will find me spending time with my two boys and three dogs. You’ll find us riding four wheelers, target shooting, playing softball, and listening to music.

 

 


 

Shannon

I recently celebrated my first anniversary as a dental assistant at Orchard Endodontics. Helping ease my patients’ fear is the best part of my job. I love multitasking, too. Meeting new people every day is a fantastic part of my job, especially when I get to help bring smiles and comfort to patients. One patient even kissed me on the cheek when I brought him his very special hat! When I’m not working, I enjoy being the preschool teacher at church and building relationships with my students. I have been with my wonderful husband for nine years—we have an eight-year-old son, a cat, two dogs, a fish and a snake! When I’m not working, you’ll find me reading, crafting, drawing, swimming, jogging, or gardening. Dr. Daws and Dr. Lang are the best—Dr. Daws even rummaged through the garbage to get a Tupperware container of mine he accidentally threw away.

 

 


 

Aliesha

I've worked at Orchard Endodontics for over seven years as a dental assistant, team leader and treatment coordinator. When I was younger, I had bad dental experiences, which made me avoid the dentist. When I finally went back, the kindness and understanding I received made me want to help others. That experience led me to my work today. I especially enjoy working with Dr. Lang and Dr. Daws—they are both so funny and have wonderful personalities. I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for 13 years. We have two boys, ages 15 and 10. We also have a chihuahua and a retriever mix. When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family, gardening, raising monarch butterflies, and watching my boys play football and baseball.
