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.
My orthodontic career began in 2001 when I joined Dr. Sanders and the rest of the team at Sanders’ Orthodontics. I am responsible for all aspects of patient care, from doing lab work and taking impressions to placing and removing brackets. Of course, seeing a beautiful smile at the end of a patient’s treatment is the very best part of my job! This office is a wonderful place to work: Dr. Sanders is a wonderful orthodontist who is patient, helpful, and appreciative of all the hard work we do for our patients. Our team is like a well-oiled machine!
I have a niece who’s a young teen and a nephew that’s a toddler. I am really excited for the newest addition to the family: a nephew due to arrive in early winter. In my spare time I enjoy reading, traveling, and hanging out with my friends and lazy dog Blue.
I assist Dr. Sanders during our patients’ appointments by providing them with necessary information on how to take care of their teeth and gums while having braces. I take X-rays and impressions, change wires, and assist in bonding procedures. While I love all aspects of my job, helping to take braces off and seeing all the beautiful smiles I helped create is the best! Working with such a kind, caring, and wonderful team has really been a blessing!
I married a wonderful man in 2016! I also have a beautiful ten-year-old daughter and spend much of my free time with her.
I started working in this office in 1997 and brought with me 22 years of experience working in the dental field. I take care of all aspects of orthodontic assisting, including greeting and seating patients, helping with their care, placing braces, and seeing the great smiles at the end of treatment. I enjoy meeting new people and I love working with all of my co-workers. Most of all, I love the smiles that I see when patients complete treatment and they look in the mirror for the very first time!
I’ve been married to my husband Don for 47 years and we have two children. Our daughter Tracey is married to Brian and they have two children, Kylie and Hayden. Our son Travis is married to MaryAnne and they have two children, Jackson and Bailey. I can’t forget our dog, Lillie!
Growing up, I always wanted to be an LPN because I knew that I wanted to help others. But after an internship at a dental office during my senior year of high school, I knew for sure that I wanted to help others with their smiles. I attended OIC Training Academy and became a NRDA, and joined the team at Sanders’ Orthodontics in 2015. Now, I not only get to help people be healthier, I also get to help them be more confident with their smiles!
I grew up on a farm, the youngest of three children. I have a big soft spot for all animals! In my free time I enjoy fishing, doing makeup, and spending time with my family.
I enjoy meeting new patients and getting to know all about them. It’s a joy to watch them grow and accomplish a beautiful smile, along with the confidence it brings. I assist Dr. Sanders with clinical procedures, including adjustments, placement of appliances, and de-bonding. I love the de-bonding and seeing a patient experience a new smile for the first time! My most important duty is making braces fun for our patients and getting them to smile during visits.
I am married to my wonderful husband Darron, and have two beautiful children, Rylan and Michaelan. We enjoy baseball and soccer, riding our side-by-sides and dirt bikes, and spending time on the farm. Our cows are our second kids!
Front Desk, Receptionist
I have worked with Dr. Sanders by scheduling appointments, answering the phones, and filing charts since 2001. I love getting to meet all the new families that come into our office and get to know them over the two to three years they spend with us. Dr. Sanders is a very caring and understanding person. He interacts with his patients on a personal level and genuinely cares about the happiness of his team.
Office Manager / Financial Coordinator
I began working in the dental field in a general dental office 1986 and was happy to join the Sanders’ Orthodontics team in 1994. I handle just about everything in the front office, from making sure everything runs smoothly to handling all of our patients’ financials. There are so many aspects of my job that I adore, so it’s hard to imagine wanting to work anywhere else. We have a great team that makes things run smoothly, and Dr. Sanders is an inspiration to all of us. He’s the best boss ever!
I live in Fairmont with John, my husband of 30 years, and our five fur babies. We have two grown sons: Charles and Skyler. Skyler and his wife Erikka have a son, Christian, who is our pride and joy!
