Paula LafenetrePaula Lafenetre

Hi, my name is Paula Lafenetre. I have been working here at Dr. Norton’s office for seven years. I love what I do! Working directly with the patients as an orthodontic/tech is my passion, and I have been in this profession for over 30 years. I am a “people” person and have the gift of gab, so this is the career that is right up my alley!!

I have lived in Lee County area since moving from Cleveland, Ohio in 1969. I live in Cape Coral with my husband, Henri, and two children. Brittany (in her third year of college) and Justin (a junior in high school.) I now have two dogs: Bobby (a Soft-Coated Wheaton Terrier) and Sammy (a Cock-a-Poo.)

In my spare time I love to shop… I am a “shop-a-holic!” As a family, we frequent Disney World… yes, we have the yearly passes! We also like to take cruises as often as we can. Come in for a free consult and see why I like my job so much.


Jacki MileyJacki Miley

My name is Jacki Miley and I am the Treatment Coordinator. I have been an Orthodontist Assistant for 15 years and love what I do!

I was born and raised in the Midwest and moved to Cape Coral to escape the harsh, cold winters of Wisconsin. I consider myself lucky to be able to continue my orthodontic passion in sunny Florida.

My husband and I have two boys who love sports,  especially baseball. Most of my free time is spent at the ball park, on the beach, or doing something outdoors with my family and friends.

The gift of a beautiful smile is the gift of a lifetime. Come see what we can do for you.

Hi, my name is Dawn, I am the scheduling coordinator. My dental career started in 1988 in the northwest part of Connecticut where I was born and raised.  I loved the dental field so much I never left It. Part of what I like so much about my job is that Dr. Norton is such a kind person. My husband and I moved to Cape Coral three years ago to escape the long cold winters. We love that we are able to be outdoors year round. I also enjoy riding bikes, reading and going on cruises. And yes I am a UConn Huskies fan.
