Orthodontic Treatment Coordinator
I started working for Dr. Christensen in June of 2010, but started working in the dental field in 2006. I am one of our treatment coordinators, so I see new patients for consultations. I have an Associate’s Degree and my certification in Dental Assisting from the College of Southern Idaho. I am also high-speed hand piece certified.
I enjoy interacting with our wonderful patients and their families on a daily basis. Getting to know new people and building relationships with them is one of the best parts of my job. Dr. Christensen and our team are so much fun as well. We all get along so well and enjoy joking around with one another and getting the patients involved. There is so much laughter in our office!
I have a wonderful husband, Kyle, who I’ve been married to for eight years! We have two awesome children, Grady and Millee. They keep us busy! We love traveling, especially if it's a road trip. We also enjoy going to our cabin in Elk River where we can ride our side-by-side, go fishing and hunting, and just enjoying the outdoors!
Sleep Care Coordinator
I started at Christensen Orthodontics in January 2014 as an orthodontic assistant, but had previously worked in pediatric dentistry for five years. I enjoy working with all ages, especially children. I like working closely with patients to improve their overall health and create beautiful smiles. It's important to me that I get to know the patients on a more personal level. I love working for Dr. Christensen and this team! We help each other out where we see a need and are energetic and fun loving, which makes the workday fly by. In March 2020, I had the opportunity to move to a different area of the office and work as a Sleep Care Coordinator. Although I will miss working in the clinic, I am so excited for this change and still work for Dr. Christensen, and be able to use my clinical knowledge to continue to help improve patients overall health.
I live with my amazing boyfriend and our cat Martha. We enjoy watching football together and singing karaoke, as well as many outdoor activities. I’m always up for trying something new!
Working in the dental field since 1996, I have had the pleasure of working back office chairside, as a scheduling coordinator, and now in finance/insurance coordinating. I started working for Dr. Christensen in September of 2014 and love providing a financial plan for his patients. The best part is helping our patients get all the insurance benefits they have coming. I enjoy being a part of a team that provides the best possible treatment for our patients.
On my own time, I love spending time with family, especially in the outdoors. I love camping, fishing, hiking, and of course cooking. I have one son, three cats, and a dog.
I welcome all patients with a smile, as well as scheduling their appointments, handling referrals, and sending out appointment reminders. Plus, I get to make the delicious cookies for our patients to indulge in! I really enjoy the interactions I have with patients and knowing what we are doing here is helping improve their health. Everyone here is so patient focused; we take the time to get to know each individual and improve their overall health.
I’m a military wife of 15 years and mother of five beautiful children, ranging from 15 to four years old: four girls and one boy. We have three great dogs that complete our already big family. We currently live in Lewiston, Idaho, and enjoy camping, hunting, fishing, swimming, and watching my kids play sports and compete in academic competitions.
I received my dental assisting certificate in 2009, and am so excited to have the opportunity to spend my days in the orthodontic field. I love that I get to greet all the patients as they come in for their appointments, and get to see the amazing things Dr. Christensen does for his patients on a daily basis. Everyone cares so much for every single patient. It’s a privilege to be part of this thriving team.
I was born and raised here in Lewiston Idaho. I have been married to my husband for eight years and have two beautiful girls. We also have an English bulldog named Lola and a French bulldog named Pua. In my spare time, I love being with my family. In the summer months, we spend our time camping, boating, swimming, and days at the beach. During the fall and winter, we cheer on the Washington Huskies in football and basketball!
I began my work as an orthodontic assistant at Christensen Orthodontics in 2017. The first thing I noticed after working here is the amazing team. I love getting to work with all of these fabulous people who make work so fun. Everyone has their special part to play, and everyone works together to make sure our patients’ experience is the best they can get.
I really enjoy the opportunity to meet so many new people, and seeing their confidence build when they get their new smile. It’s amazing to change lives and help people breathe better!
I have a three-year-old pit bull named Kyzer and he definitely keeps me busy. One of my hobbies is dog/house sitting for people when they are out of town. I also enjoy summertime activities like camping and paddle boarding. I am a part of a gym in Clarkston called Hells Canyon CrossFit and it is definitely a big part of my life! In my free time, you can catch me enjoying the sunshine or reading a good murder mystery.
I earned my dental assisting certificate in 2017 through LCSC. I started working at Christensen Orthodontics that same year! I am one of the first assistants that the patient will see at the beginning of their treatment and one of the last after they get their braces off. I love being able to talk with each of our patients and enjoy getting to know them throughout their orthodontic treatment.
Outside of work, I love spending time outdoors with my family, my fiancé Josh, and our golden retriever Wilson. We enjoy flying, spending time on the river, bird hunting, and skiing. I also LOVE running, biking, and exercising!
I began working for Dr. Christensen in January 2018, while I was in the dental assisting program through Work Force Training at LCSC. Working as an orthodontic assistant for Dr. Christensen has seriously changed my life. It’s a feeling of happiness I’ve never experienced before. I love working with all ages in the office and getting to know our patients on a personal level. The environment of the practice is pure joy and fun. My coworkers are family to me and I love that we get along so well.
In my free time, I enjoy anything outdoors, like snowmobiling and driving our side-by-side in the mountains, or golfing and boating in the summer. I also love a night in to cuddle with my two cats.
I’m one of the newest members of Dr. Christensen’s team. I love making little kids feel comfortable and relaxed during their visit, and I like when patients and their parents are happy with the results of treatment. It makes me happy knowing that we are not only helping to improve self-esteem, but also helping with breathing. It’s so cool when a patient talks about how they are breathing better and I know that I was a part of doing that! It’s very rewarding.
I really like working with Dr. Christensen because he cares a lot about his patients and his team. He has done so much to make me feel welcome and valued in my short time being here and it really makes all the difference in coming to work knowing that I am appreciated and seen even for small things.
At home, I have a three-year-old pit bull named Sky. We love sleeping in on weekends and cuddling. I really like outdoors, things like hiking and going on walks especially in the spring. I enjoy spending time with my close friends, going shopping, or going on a walk with our dogs. I really like movies as well, especially science fiction!
I started working with Dr. Christensen and his team as a scheduling coordinator in 2019. Now an orthodontic assistant, I assist at chairside, take care of patients, and make a great, fun experience for each person we see. I’m also a pre-dental hygiene student, so I enjoy learning new things and being able to practice what I love in the dental field. I feel so fortunate to be a part of a thriving practice that helps people beyond just appearance—we actually help people live healthier lives!
I am a proud mother of two little girls and fiancé to a wonderful man who works for Inland Cellular as their Internet developer. I love spending time with my family and friends! I also like staying active by running track, basketball, and lifting weights.
As our records coordinator, I assist Dr. Christensen by obtaining patients’ X-rays, scans, photographs, and airway tests used in determining treatment plans. The best part of my job is getting to know our patients on a personal level and seeing the positive effects their treatment has on their life. I look forward to coming into work each day to improve the health and well-being of our patients.
I grew up in Chihuahua, Mexico. My husband Martin and I were married in 2004 and have two children, Nate and Mia. In our free time, we enjoy camping, hiking, tubing on the river, and are active in our church.
I started working for Dr. Christensen in October 2017. Though I have only just begun my career in the dental field, I have worked in the medical field for 18 years. As our lab tech, I make all those fun shiny appliances for your mouth! My favorite part of my job is knowing that with all the appliances I’m making, I’m not only helping our patients with a beautiful smile but in many cases opening airways and saving lives. I love my job; the team has been so inviting and helpful. I am so happy and blessed to be working for such a great, kind-hearted doctor!
I have lived in the LCV all my life. I have a son Treyten who is my world. We love camping with our family and two little fur babies Bentley and Dolché. When we’re not camping, we are hanging with our family and friends.
I make sure our office’s sterilization meets or exceeds safety standards. I enjoy helping patients and seeing how happy they are when they are done with treatment. I love all of the new technology and information Dr. Christensen has incorporated to help his patients, especially infants and those with sleep apnea. We get to help people have a better quality of life all while making their smile everything they ever wanted!
I am currently taking my last class to earn my Bachelor’s in biology and plan on taking the GRE and applying to PA school in the spring. Greeting me when I get home is my silver lab puppy. I enjoy going to my cabin and doing many outdoor activities in my free time.
