Hi, my name is Melanie. I began my career here in 2014. I am a mother to four beautiful children, Gabriella, Andres, Selestina and Nicholas. Married my high school sweetheart, Andy. When I’m not working, I enjoy doing most outdoor activities, working on a variety of crafts and love going to the movies (mostly for the popcorn!) I genuinely enjoy helping people in any way I possibly can, whether it be scheduling an appointment, explaining our contracts or helping with finance questions, I do what I can to help. Working with AMAZING coworkers and for the BEST Orthodontist in town is also a PLUS!
Hi! My name is Mary Jane (MJ) Turner and I joined the Leber Orthodontics staff in 1992. I have three wonderful children, Annie, Sarah and Matthew. My daughter Annie is married to Jesse and they have a son, Bryce and a daughter, Violet. My daughter Sarah (who also is a Leber staff member) is married to Travis and they have two sons, William and George. My son, Matthew is married to Maggie and they have a son, Patrick. It is so much fun being a grandma!!! My spare time is spent either spending time with my family or outdoors. I enjoy hiking the beautiful southern Arizona hiking trails, gardening or playing tennis. I also belong to a wonderful church and enjoy volunteering with its many members. I have enjoyed my many years working for Leber Orthodontics and love to see all the beautiful smiles we help create!
Hello, my name is Sarah. I came on board with Leber Orthodontics in June of 2013 after seven years of teaching middle school Spanish. I love being here because it gives me a chance to work with a lot of the same age group, without the grading! I am a born and raised Tucsonan, and I love it here – even one day of clouds and rain makes me sad, so I can’t imagine living anywhere else. In my free time I love to garden in my backyard or run around my neighborhood.
I have been married to my best friend Travis since the 4th of July, 2008. We are the parents of two beautiful boys, William and George.
I love our patients – working here is a joy every day – and I look forward to meeting you!

In my spare time, my fiance and I enjoy spending time with our children, watching movies, and being outdoors. I also enjoy playing tennis. I’ve been in the dental field for seven years now, before joining the Leber family in the summer of 2017, I couldn’t be more happier in this workplace, Dr Eric is an amazing leader and our staff is awesome.
Hi! My name is Candace Nelson. I have been with Leber Orthodontics since 2008. I enjoy working with a nice, caring, family oriented practice. What I like most about my job is meeting the Tucson community that comes through our office and also creating relationships while achieving beautiful smiles. Outside of the office I try to stay well rounded by keeping in touch with my family and friends. In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with my dog Zeke, also listening to music, going to concerts, watching movies,playing golf, and eating/cooking food. So if you happen to see me in public feel free to say “Hi”! And remember to SMILE BIG!! See you around!
