Meet Our Team

Hi, my voice is likely to be the first one you will hear when you call into our office. I have worked with Dr. VanDevanter since 1997. I am an appointment coordinator, which gives me the pleasure of welcoming patients and families to our office and helping them schedule appointments. My mission is to serve our patients and provide appointments that best fit their busy schedules. From our initial meeting to completion of treatment, my goal is to be your friend and advocate. Patients find me to be a knowledgeable resource for school schedules and a dedicated partner in making their time with us a pleasure.


I am passionate about smiles and delivering service to our patients. I joined Dr. VanDevanter's team in 2006, and my role in the office is to guide and educate each patient through treatment. The orthodontic profession has undergone dramatic changes in the last 10 years, and our office is on the cutting edge of the digital transformation. This means that our patients have more options than ever before in selecting their choice for treatment. My expertise is assisting you and your family on options which may include Invisalign Teen, WildSmiles, self-ligating brackets, and clear braces. It is my privilege to be a resource for patients and families throughout treatment, from the first visit until we deliver your retainer.


Hi, I have worked with Dr. VanDevanter since 2002, and I’ve been in the orthodontic field since 1991. I lead our well-trained clinical team, and we take pride in the excellent patient care that we provide. Orthodontics is a challenging and rewarding field because it is always evolving. The way that treatment is provided now is very different than when I was a teenager. Digital imaging, virtual 3D computer models, and Invisalign are some of the improvements that make patient care much better today. Our office is constantly incorporating treatment advances that improve the patient experience and result.


I joined Dr. VanDevanter's clinical team in 2008. I have firsthand knowledge of the value of a beautiful smile because Dr. VanDevanter did my braces while I was attending Todd Beamer High School in Federal Way. Now I'm working to help others achieve a beautiful smile. My favorite patients are small children that come in without any experience of orthodontics, and sometimes not even much knowledge of dentistry. If I can make them happy to be here, it makes my day! Providing encouragement and gentle care are my strengths as I work my hardest to ensure that everyone's trip to the orthodontist is a positive experience.


I'm a clinical assistant for Dr. VanDevanter. I'm so excited to be joining her team. Although I only started working here in 2013, I've been a clinical assistant since 2009, and I love playing a part in orthodontic care. I find it so rewarding to help change smiles and make people more confident in their daily lives. My absolute favorite part of my job is seeing patients I have worked on get de-banded, and knowing that I helped make a difference in their lives. I'm a huge fan of outdoor sports, and chances are, you could run into me snowboarding during the winter or hiking during the summer.


Hello! I have worked with Dr. VanDevanter's since 2015. I'm the first team member you'll meet. I take photos, records, and I also sterilize all instruments used after each patient. I love working with kids and making each patient feel comfortable in the chair. I enjoy seeing each patient’s confidence bloom when they get their braces off!! Outside of work, I enjoy attending concerts, playing video games, and going on adventures in my Jeep. I also enjoy spending time with my boyfriend and chocolate lab, Leroy!


I just graduated high school in June of 2018 and am excited to attend the University of Washington Tacoma for a career in the dental field! I have been lucky enough to have been with VanDevanter Orthodontics since 2016! I'm one of the sterilization techs, which means that I make sure that every instrument that comes in contact with your mouth in clean, shiny, and - most of all - STERILIZED! You may also meet me when I'm taking photos and x-rays. You'll often see me running around the office doing anything that I can to help keep the office running smoothly.


I've been in specialty dentistry since 1999. I'm so happy work in my favorite of all dental fields, orthodontics! Besides the fun technical side of orthodontics, what I really enjoy is getting to know patients and their families during treatment. Getting to know you and your teeth from start to finish is so rewarding and I feel happy to be a part of the transformation of your smile.
