Administrative Assistant

Alyssa joined OX in 2016 and  originally worked at the front desk. Her position has transitioned to lab tech. She has a beautiful baby daughter who keeps her busy and is very photogenic.

Orthodontic Technician

I am a recent graduate of UMBC, where I studied Biology. I decided to take some time off from school to start working.


I am so grateful for the opportunity to be working in an environment where I am constantly learning an abundance of information about the field of orthodontics. I love being challenged to always provide top notch care and the ability to work with the latest technology. I am honored to be a part of the OX team. It is a pleasure to work with both the staff and the patients.

New Patient Coordinator

Christine joined OXorthodontix in March 2014. She previously worked with Drs. Hickory and Selnick and has been very happy being back working along side them again creating beautiful smiles. She has 31 years of experience in all aspects of the orthodontic field including orthodontic assisting, treatment coordination, office management and marketing. Christine and her husband Tom enjoy watching their daughter Marissa coach her own club lacrosse team as well as playing on her post collegiate team. Christine also enjoys spending time with her Golden Retriever Grandpuppy Benny.

Front Desk Coordinator

I have been with OX Orthdontix since 2011. I enjoy learning about orthodontics and the new technology the office embraces, which is amazing. I look forward to seeing everyone with their beautiful smiles! I am originally from Carroll County and now reside in Howard County. In my free time I enjoy to travel, shop, and watch movies. 


Our friend iTero enables the doctor to take a 3D digital scan of the patient's teeth and bite. For patients this means, no more messy and uncomfortable mouth molds, better fitting appliances and Invisalign aligners. It's a tremendous asset for our patients.

Clinical Technician

I am a clinical technician and I have been with the OX team for 1 year. I enjoy working here because of my interactions with the patients. I am here to give patients great customer service and quality efficient work and that is what I do! I take my job seriously but I don't take myself too seriously that's why my patients always leave with a smile!

Orthodontic Technician

I've been a part of the OX team since 2010. I like learning about new advancements and technology as they occur in orthodontics. I am a southern girl at heart, but currently reside in Gaithersburg, MD with my husband and two-year-old daughter, Julianna. Together, we love to go to the park, shop (more like look!), and bake scrumptious desserts for everyone at OX.

Orthodontic Technician

Natasha has been with OX for six years. She embraces technology and has taken the lead on the OX App and Dental Monitoring. She has a three year old son and loves spending time with her husband and son.

New Patient Coordinator

I like working at OX because every day I get to meet different residents of the communities where our offices are located. I get to know about the patients and/or parents and their hobbies. When they come through the door, I know they've been referred to our office by word of mouth or referral from their primary dentist, and I find joy in knowing that we are setting them up for success in obtaining a beautiful smile! When I'm not at the office, I enjoy antiquing, being at the beach, or by a pool, working out, and being around friends & family.

Executive Assistant

As the Executive Assistant at OX Orthodontix, I've worked with our fabulous doctors since 2003 and seem to learn something new from them every day. Coming to work for Drs. Hickory and Selnick has been the best decision I have made. I've learned about Invisalign, all types of digital technologies and I love working with hip and up to date doctors. When I'm not working, I'm home enjoying time with my husband, kids and 2 dogs. I have  3 beautiful  daughters.  They keep my life active to say the least. I look forward to meeting you when you visit the office.

Orthodontic Technician

I joined OX as an intern and started full time a few months later.

I love orthodontics because you get the ability to transform a patients smile. I love the staff here. All of the girls are great and helpful. I love the passion everyone has for patient care. I was born and raised in Maryland.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my children, catching up on all of my favorite TV shows or lounging on the beach.

Orthodontic Technician

I have known Drs. Hickory and Selnick for 20 years. I enjoy working at OX because the doctors and my co-workers are fabulous!

In my spare time, I spend every minute with my son . He is the moon and the stars of my life. I also enjoy taking walks with my "crazy dog". In addition, I enjoy cooking Persian food for my husband.

Front Desk

Our great front desk has a new smile now that Wendy has joined the team. Wendy is a Columbia resident with training in massage therapy and a resume filled with charitable work. A recipient of numerous awards and recognition including Woman of Distinction by the Business Women's Network and Helping People Award by the Comptroller of Maryland, Wendy said one of the reasons she wanted to join our organization is because OX is so committed to our community.

Official Greeter

When Dr. Selnick returned from the 2016 AAO Annual Session, she was surprised and elated to find a new member of the family, Theo. This llhaso apso takes the cute award in the OX family!
