Meet the Team

We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Orthodontic Assistants

Our orthodontic assistants work directly with patients: assisting with bonding brackets, changing wires and band colors, and providing oral hygiene instruction. They gather diagnostic information by taking X-rays and impressions at the beginning of treatment, remove braces at the end, and ensure our patients’ comfort during all the visits in between.

Rachael

Orthodontic assistant

I have been a dental assistant for ten years and I love my job! Working with our patients is the absolute best. It’s so much fun to learn about their hobbies and hear about their adventures. Everyone in this office shares great relationships and works together as a team. This crew is my favorite!

I am a mother of four. Most of my time is spent following my kids to their athletic activities, including soccer, basketball, and wrestling. My husband and I are youth leaders at our church, teach adult bible study, and participate in missions trips. We love our simple life in the Bitterroot Valley where we enjoy many outdoor activities like hiking, fishing, hunting, skiing, and snowshoeing.

Lisa

Orthodontic assistant

My favorite part of my job is getting to know our patients better. Every person is so interesting and unique — they all have stories to tell and I love hearing them! All members of our team are, at their core, kind and generous. They make it a real pleasure to come to work each day.

When I’m not at work, running is my main activity. Caring for my two children, Jackson and Hana, is my favorite way to spend my time. We have one pet named Bunny, and yes, she is a rabbit. I also love to bake, but not cook. I am an avid squash player and I love to hike!

Jenn

Orthodontic assistant

Each person has interesting stories to share, and I love hearing them. Working in an office where the emphasis is on truly making a difference in people’s lives, and seeing how much happier they are at the end of their treatment, makes me smile. As an office, our goal is to treat everyone with the compassion and warmth they deserve.

I am happily married to my husband who works for the railroad. We have beautiful children ranging from a small child to teens. We are very involved in sports, our religion, scouting, and family time. Our hobbies are camping, swimming, hiking, dirt biking, and traveling to watch our oldest son’s soccer team.

Hope

Orthodontic assistant

I love helping people develop great smiles! Every person comes in with the dream of a healthy, beautiful smile, and we make that happen for them. The transformations our patients go through are really amazing to witness!

I am a Montana native and have lived in Corvallis for for more than two decades with my husband Todd. We have two boys who keep us very busy with school, football, baseball, track and 4H. We also enjoy camping and trail riding in the summer. The outdoors is our playground, whether it is in our backyard or the back country. We feel very blessed to live and raise our children here in Montana!

Brenda

Gal-Friday!

I am so fortumate to be a part of this great team. I came onboard in July 2012 as an orthodontic assistant. I then became the first point of contact as the scheduling coordinator. As of April 2021, I took the helm of the financial side of the practice.  Occasionally, I can still be found in the clinic, keeping my skills “sharp” as a backup orthodontic assistant. I also help to facilitate the day-to-day running of the business side of the practice. One of the best parts of my job is developing relationships with not only our patients, but their families as well. I love to see how our patients blossom as their smiles change! Our office is a happy place to work, where “work” doesn’t feel like “work”!

After finishing my dental education in San Diego, I moved to Montana in 1993. I was blessed to be able to raise my three children in the Missoula Valley. I currently have 11 grandchildren, who bring great joy and happiness into my life.

Leigh

Orthodontic Lab Assistant

I facilitate the clinic by keeping the treatment areas clean and ready for the next patient, sterilizing instruments, taking impressions, pouring models, and making retainers. I love helping people achieve the smile they’ve always wanted, and seeing all the smiles along the way. Ours is a practice where our patients’ well-being and treatment goals are our primary concern: we want everyone to feel safe and welcome during their visits, and to leave smiling.

I am from the Bitterroot Valley, but I worked in Southeast Alaska for 20 years. My husband recently retired from the State of Alaska, but I’m not quite ready to retire yet! We have four grown children and nine grandchildren, as well as three Golden Retrievers that keep us active and busy!

 

Sheri

Scheduling Coordinator

I have been fortunate in landing the best job in the world!  Well, maybe not the world, but certainly in Missoula!  I came on board as a team member in 2021 as the resident scheduling coordinator. I love meeting and greeting each and every patient and their family members as they come into our office. I find this position to be very rewarding as I help to facilitate happy, healthy smiles.

Believe it or not, I am a native Montanan, a native 'Bitterrooter' even! (Yes, we do still exist!)  I have been married to my fabulous husband since 1993 and we have raised our two children into productive, lovely adults.  I have one grandchild and (squeel!) another on the way!

I love recreating in all that Montana has to offer, which is easy to do when it's your "backyard".  We love four wheeling, hunting, camping and especially love spending time with family and friends.
