Sandra joined Ricci Orthodontics as one of our patient coordinators in June of 2005. As our appointment coordinator, you can find Sandra’s smiling face as you arrive and depart. She enjoys being around people and excels at making them feel comfortable. Sandra was born and raised in the Atlanta area and graduated from North Fulton High School before attending Auburn University. She currently lives in Canton, and her children and grandchildren have been under Dr. Steven Ricci’s care in the past. Sandra enjoys being outside doing yard work, walking, or spending time doing lake-related activities with her family. She most enjoys flipping burgers and yelling “War Eagle!” at any given moment!


Patient Coordinator

Sandi joined our team at Ricci Orthodontics as a Patient Coordinator in 2022 and brought with her over 28 years of experience working with the public. She attended the University of Georgia where she earned her Bachelor of Social Work degree. She spent the last 18 years at an OB/GYN practice, and 10 years prior to that at a Veterinarian practice. Sandi combines her love of people and animals by training her own dogs for pet-assisted therapy. For the past 22 years, she has continued to volunteer her time by taking her dogs to visit residents and patients at assisted living communities and a hospital rehabilitation unit. In addition to her passion for pet-assisted therapy and dog training, she also enjoys hobbies such as calligraphy and photography. Sandi and her husband have an awesome son (who was already under Dr. Ricci’s care prior to joining our team!). Sandi is best known for her warm smile, outgoing personality, and pleasant voice.
