Hi, my name is Connie Broadwell and I joined Dr. Frick’s team in March of 1999 and I'm happy to continue working with him as he joins Dr. Hershey and Dr. Heymann. I love helping people achieve beautiful smiles through orthodontics. Originally, I am from Edenton, North Carolina, and moved here when I was in high school. After certification from GTCC, I began my career as a chiropractic assistant. My training as an orthodontic assistant included dental radiology certification from UNC.
My husband, Richard, is the bus captain at our church, Liberty Baptist in Durham, North Carolina, where we are very involved. Together, we have two high-spirited daughters, Alyssa and Abby. Both attend school at Liberty.
I am a HUGE – and misguided – sports fan, especially for Dallas Cowboys Football and Duke Basketball. Go Blue Devils!
