Meet the Team

The Schulhof Center at KinderSmiles is a one-of-a-kind practice led by Orthodontist Dr. Adam Schulhof. We represent the gold standard for cosmetic orthodontics and are the clear choice for a winning and confident smile. Meet our amazing trained and skilled team, who strive to provide an energetic and fun-loving service to each and every patient.


My name is Karolina Peranek, I am the Lead Assistant and Clinical Coordinator here at The Schulhof Center. I am a Registered Dental Assistant, and I have been in the orthodontic field for about 15 years. I had the pleasure of joining Dr. Schulhof’s talented team in 2016. I truly feel that something as simple as a smile can boost a person’s self-confidence and it brings me great satisfaction to be able to provide that for our patients.  In my opinion, the best part of working in the orthodontic field is having the ability to constantly learn new things; no patient is ever the same.  At Dr. Schulhof’s office I am responsible for numerous tasks.  I am in charge of sending out all the Invisalign, Incognito, 3M Clarity Aligner and KL Owen bracket cases.  We also incorporated a 3D printer into our practice recently and I will be handling all the in-office aligner cases as well! Aside from helping achieve great smiles, I spend most of my free reading, working out and raising my son. (I’m sure you have seen him in the office at some point already!)


Hi there! My name is Briana Smith, I am one of the lead orthodontic assistants and the Lab Coordinator. I am a Certified Orthodontic Assistant (COA). I have been in the dental field for about 7 years and in orthodontics for about 4 years. I love being an orthodontic assistant because I feel like I am always learning something new. I am always smiling and I love being able to help kids and adults have a smile they can be proud of and show off. In my spare time I enjoy learning sign language, writing, playing music and spending time with my friends and family.
