Meet the Team

Front office team

Each member of my front office team reflects the type of laid back, professional, and friendly atmosphere we are proud of here. You can count on them for expert advice, cheerful assistance, and a genuine interest in patients and families.

Christina

As my Office Manager and Financial Coordinator since 2001, Christina loves helping people create beautiful smiles as part of the orthodontic team! She is also your "go-to gal" for questions you may have about our office or the wonderful world of ortho insurance! On the weekends, you'll find Christina reading a good book, hiking with her family, shopping, or planning her next trip to Sunriver! 

Marcia

My Appointment Coordinator, Marcia, has been with us since 2001, and she has perfected the art of getting to know you and making you feel like you're part of the family! Don't be surprised when she recognizes you on the phone just from your voice! On the weekends, you may run into Marcia RV'ing at the coast or desert, making new friends, and proudly showing off photos of her beautiful grandchildren! 

Danette

Danette, my Treatment Coordinator since 2006,will meet with you on your first visit to help you learn all about ortho treatment, and you'll quickly see why she loves working in the field of orthodontics! Danette's genuine enthusiasm for ortho treatment and her love of meeting people and cultivating relationships are a winning combination!  When she's not at work, you might find Danette biking to her favorite watering hole, boating, or shopping.

Assisting team

All of my assistants are certified both in Expanded Functions in Orthodontics (EFODA) and Radiology. With this high level of training and experience, you can rely on my assistants to understand your ortho treatment goals, provide outstanding patient education, and always treat you gently and with respect.

Kelley

You'll find Kelley assisting chairside, where you'll see first-hand her dedication to our patients and to our team. With us since 1994, she always enjoys getting to know our wonderful patients and families. If you catch Kelley daydreaming, she's probably planning her next outdoor adventure: Camping? Hiking? Kayaking? Waterskiing? Snow skiing? If it's an outdoor activity, she's game!

Tara

Tara has assisted me chairside since 2002, and finds it most rewarding to see the amazing changes to patients' confidence that ortho can have. She is also the creative mind behind our office contests, so next time you're here, be sure to enter the latest one! Although she keeps plenty busy with her 2 young daughters, she tries to find free time to cook, hike, and go to all the fun festivals in our area.

Alexsa

Since 2008, Alexsa has enjoyed getting to know each patient and seeing their smile transformations from start to finish. She finds it especially gratifying to contribute to how happy and confident patients are about their new smiles! If she's not traveling to wonderful vacation spots, Alexsa enjoys the beautiful Oregon outdoors hiking with her dog, golfing, skiing, and boating!
