Meet the Staff

Sherri, RDH

Sherri AgostaWelcome to the office! I work closely with Dr. Heiber, providing patient care as a registered dental hygienist and keeping the schedule on time as the office manager. After 32 years of working together with Dr. Heiber, I still get excited every day to come to the office. I love children and teenagers and  have such a great time interacting with the kids, hearing about their lives, challenges, fears, and accomplishments. Watching them grow up is so fulfilling! When you are a patient in our office, you become family as well.

My husband, Dennis and I have three children, Brian, Amy and Ashley,  and eight grandchildren,  Mason, Vincent, Emelia, Jocelyn, Camryn, Lucas, Carter and Owen.  I enjoy spending time gardening, reading, watching Buckeye and Steelers football, and NCAA March Madness. I'm an ESPN junkie!



Abby Effinger

I assist Dr. Heiber chairside, getting patients ready for their braces and changing the color ties of the braces. I like to make sure my patients are comfortable and understand what’s happening at their appointments. I had braces and I want patients to know I do know what they are going through and that it will all be worth it.

My husband, Jason, and I have a daughter, Madison, and a son, Parker. In my free time I enjoy watching movies, shopping, vacationing at the beach, and spending time with my family and friends.



Amy Brandt

As our diagnostic records tech, I take new exam photos, gather all patient records, pour models, and make appliances. I usually spend a lot of time with our new patients, so I like to talk with them and explain how great it is to have braces!  A visit in our office is not for braces only. It’s family fun time!  We deliver exquisite care while having a fun visit with the whole family.

My husband, Jim, and I have three sons , Aaron, Will, and Nate,  a daughter, Jessie and two grandchildren, Hunter and Lucas. When I’m not in the office I enjoy reading and gardening.





Michelle French

As our clinical coordinator, I am responsible for the ordering for the office, assisting Dr. Heiber in the clinical area, and making sure all appliances are ready for our patients. I love to interact with our patients, learning about their hobbies and interests, and putting them at ease when they’re in our office. The best part of my day is seeing a new, beautiful smile!

I’ve been married to Don for more than 30 years and we have three grown children, Andrew, Trissa, and Donald. We are also blessed with seven grandchildren, Isaiah, Kynlee,  Gracie, Rylen, Carly, Preslie and Jordyn.  Watching the grandkids is the best! I also enjoy working in the garden, fishing with my husband, and watching the Cincinnati Reds and the Ohio State Buckeyes.






I am the New Patient Coordinator.  I will greet you at your first appointment and help you through the process to get your treatment started at Central Ohio Orthodontics.  We will take great care of not only the patient, but your family as well.  We will answer all your questions and get you started towards the beautiful smile you've always wanted.

My husband Rocky and I have three children,  Jared, Randal and Emma. We spend lots of time at the softball fields, on ATVs, and just being together as a family
