Meet the Team


Dental Assistant

I have over 19 years of experience as a dental assistant, with the last nine years being with Central Lakes Orthodontics. There are so many things I enjoy about working here. We have a very strong dental team that is easy and fun to work with. The interaction with all of the patients is what I enjoy most about working at Central Lakes Orthodontics.

I have lived in Alexandria for 10 years. I am married and have three children. I enjoy watching baseball and hockey, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.


Dental Assistant / Receptionist

I began working at Central Lakes Orthodontics in 1994. I enjoy my job and the people I meet. I love seeing a patient’s smile change from month to month and getting to know them as a person.

I am married to Terry and we have raised five young men together. I enjoy spending time with them as well as with my grandchildren. I am a sports enthusiast from high school to professional. I enjoy gardening and photography in my spare time.


Dental Assistant

I have been at Central Lakes Orthodontics since 1999. I enjoy getting to know the patients and see their smiles. It is very rewarding to be a part of the excitement as their smiles change and their self-confidence grows. Smiles are contagious!

I live on a hunting/hobby farm with my husband, Brad, and our two children. 


Lab Technician / Dental Assistant

I'm a registered dental assistant at Central Lakes Orthodontics in the Wadena office and have worked there for 18 years. I work in the orthodontic lab and also work chairside as an assistant. I love working with Dr. Anderson and the other great dental assistants. We all work so well together. We have fun during our busy work day and we make a great team! I really enjoy our patients and it's fun to see the changes we make in their smiles during their treatment.

I'm married and have two children. I love the outdoors and spending time with family and friends.


Dental Assistant

I have over 20 years of dental assisting experience, of which seven of these years have been with Central Lakes Orthodontics at both the Wadena and the Alexandria clinics. I love both the orthodontic team that I work with and our patients. It is really fun getting to know our patients and to watch their dental changes through the progression of their treatment.

I was raised in Verndale and currently live in Wadena with my husband, David, and our 2 children, Kendra and Mason. My hobbies include traveling, reading, shopping and spending time with family and friends.

I have been employed at Central Lakes Orthodontics for almost 10 years. What I like best about orthodontics is being a part of changing peoples’ lives by improving their look and the function of their teeth. Lots of happy patients!
