Dr. Franks attended St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia where she obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences. She then went on to receive her DMD degree from Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry.
As a sophomore in undergrad, Dr. Franks began working as an orthodontic assistant in the office of Dr. Benjamin Cassalia, the pioneer of the innovative, completely concealed orthodontic technique called C5 Hidden Orthodontics. After graduation, Dr. Franks joined his practice as an associate in 2012 and has treated many patients with this revolutionary technique since that time.
Dr. Franks joined the Alta Smiles team as both Director of Clinical Operations and Supervisory Clinician in 2020. In this role, she has helped with combining Alta Smiles’s technological advances with Dr Cassalia’s proven technique to build a training program that makes it easy for any dental practitioner to implement C5 Hidden Orthodontics in their office.
