We recognize that all of 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.
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.
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’ll be here to greet you when you visit our office! My role is an appointment coordinator, which gives me the pleasure of welcoming patients and families and helping them schedule appointments. Dr. VanDevanter was my orthodontist and although I had a difficult and long treatment plan, I now love my smile! It is my pleasure to answer any questions you may have and set up your next visit with us. In my spare time I am very involved with international missionary work.
