Meet the Team


Alisha

Front Desk Coordinator

While I was undergoing orthodontic treatment as a child, the receptionist at my orthodontic office was always so happy, I remember thinking she must really love her job--and now I realize why!  I enjoy building relationships with our patients and their families and being a part of this great community. Working at our front desk, I welcome patients, check them in, schedule appointments and coordinate their care with other dental offices. 

My husband Garrett and I live in Newton with our 2 children.

Kim

Financial Coordinator

I love our patients. They are great and always have great stories to share! I never know what they’re going to say, but it’s guaranteed to be interesting. I love watching them gain confidence in their appearance as they see their smile change, and being part of that process.  I work with patients to find payment arrangements that fit their needs and help them obtain their insurance benefits.

I’m originally from Colfax and now live in Newton with my husband Mark. Our son Ben and his wife, Emily live in West Des Moines. My favorite times are spent with my family and loved ones.

Barb

Dental Assistant

I love helping people develop great smiles! Every person comes in with the dream of a healthy, becoming smile, and we make that happen for them. During their visits we chat, and often become friends. I enjoy learning about a person’s interests and activities. I offer chairside assistance, supporting our doctors and patients during procedures.

I live in Newton with my husband Ray, and have two adult daughters as well as two grandchildren. I enjoy antiquing during my time off.

Jen

Dental Assistant

Seeing patients every four to six weeks means I get to stay current on what’s happening in their lives. Whether it’s the prom, sporting activities, vacations, classes, or a promotion at work, each person always has something new to share. During a patient’s visit, I sit chairside, assisting the doctor and keeping the patient updated on what we’re doing.

I was raised in Newton and now live in Monroe with my husband Craig and children Amy, Eric, and Cari. We also have a dog, Daisy. We all love to camp, fish, hunt, and be outdoors.

Deanna

Dental Assistant

I enjoy getting to know our wonderful patients and hearing about their lives. Each person always has something new to share and I love learning who they are. Watching our patients develop beautiful smiles makes each day a joy! I assist our doctors as they care for our patients, and make sure they have everything needed. At the same time, I make sure our patient is comfy.

Nicole

Dental Assistant

I love seeing our patients and their families during their visits, and showing patients their progress. The before- and after-treatment photos never fail to amaze me; it’s incredible how much each person changes with a confident and beautiful smile! My days are spent working with patients, supporting them during procedures, while talking and laughing with them.

My husband Mike and I, along with our four young boys, live in Sully. Spending time with my family is my top priority. I also enjoy music, shopping, and working out.
