Outside of the office

“My husband and my family are my rocks. I grew up in Starkville with my parents and two brothers. My husband, Frazier Williams, is also a Mississippi native from Caledonia. He is an oral-maxillofacial surgeon.

We recently moved to Tupelo and welcomed our daughter into the world. We are staying busy raising our daughter and enjoying time getting settled into our new hometown!”

As a Mississippi State alumnus, Dr. Pongetti loves meeting with family and friends on Saturdays for tailgating in Starkville. Now with the great doctors and staff at GO Orthodontics, she has some new friends to say hi to in the Grove as well. 

After moving around for the past few years, Dr. Pongetti looks forward to being able to settle into her new area in Tupelo and discover all the potential it has to offer, and all that she can offer to her community. She is excited to get to know her new community, find a church home, and discover the charity and service opportunities that await!
