Elena Gorham

I am the lead assistant in the clinic. I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Fleming since 2002. I really enjoy my co-workers and our patients. It gives me great joy when our patients are very happy with their final transformation. We pride ourselves in keeping up with the latest orthodontic technology to better serve our patients. Our patients leave with the most gorgeous smiles!

My husband's name is William and we have two sons, Martine and Tyler, a daughter named Alexis, a daughter-in-law Veronica, and two grand-babies Leonardo and Cristian. I enjoy reading novels, taking long walks, and riding my Harley. I also go rollerblading, ice skating, shopping, and organize holiday events for my family.

Raina Kim

I am an assistant in the clinic here at Advance! Top Orthodontics. I graduated from dental hygienist school in Korea about 16 years ago. I like orthodontics and enjoy working here with Dr. Fleming. I love the big smiles that I create as I work with the patients.

I am from Korea but have been in the US for ten years. I live in Maryland with my two Chihuahuas Coco and Yeppy. I love listening to music and talking with people. I am a very friendly, happy person!

Candace Bruns

I am the treatment coordinator and administrative assistant for Dr. Fleming. I handle inquiries from the public, maintain correspondence, and support the office through numerous other administrative functions. The best part of my job is interacting with all the patients and their families. I worked with Dr. Fleming years ago before Meg was born and am still a certified orthodontic and dental assistant. I left to be a stay-at-home mom, but now that the kids are teenagers and know everything, it was time for me to go back to work. And of course, where else would I go but back to work for Dr. Fleming? 

My husband of 21 years is Bill. We have two kids, Meghan and Ryan, who are both patients here. I love hanging at the beach and soaking up the sun, crafting, and watching movies. I also love a nice glass of wine with my friends.
