Meet the Team

Our friendly, dedicated, and energetic team is committed to working with you and your family to create a positive experience every time you visit our practice.
Welcome to Covino Orthodontics! My name is Bandit. I was given to Dr. Covino by his children nearly 20 years ago when he first started his practice to welcome patients into the office. I always like to be petted and I move a round sometimes so try to find me when you come in for your visit.
I assist new patients and their families in the process of choosing orthodontic treatment. My goal is to help our new families understand the value of a beautiful smile while making the entire new patient process a convenient and pleasant experience. As the newest addition to the Covino Orthodontics team, I’ve had a lot of fun getting to know all of our patients and their families. I love explaining all of the intricacies of orthodontics to patients who are so interested. Experiencing that first look in the mirror with a patient after de-banding is so rewarding! Dr. Covino is so honest in his care and concern for each and every patient. His easy-going nature, lively conversation and quick wit put his patients immediately at ease. I feel very fortunate to be a part of his team.
I have been married to my husband, Duane, for 26 years and we have four children, Karly, Jordan, Taylor, and Tucker. We also have dogs, cats, chickens, horses, steer, and a sheep on Hickory Gate Farm. I enjoy the outdoors, gardening, exercising, reading, and time spent with my wonderful family and friends. I am also involved with my church and 4-H programs.
