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.


Gloria

Practice Manager

I oversee the office in many different aspects, including human resources, in the clinic and lab, and at the front desk. I also work with Dr. Bruce on marketing, advertising, monthly scheduling, and daily office management. I love working with patients of all ages, to make sure they feel welcomed and confident in the quality of care they will receive. Watching our patients grow in self-confidence is always rewarding to me. Helping change people’s lives is why I love this profession.

I have been married for 25 years. My husband and I enjoy being outdoors, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. In the summer, we love boating, kayaking, swimming, and sitting around our fire pit. In the winter, you will see me snowshoeing on the lake and through the woods. 

Heather

Treatment and Financial Coordinator

I have the pleasure of meeting our new patients, answering their questions regarding proposed treatments, reviewing their options, and creating financial agreements that work for their budget. I love meeting with patients on their first visit and helping them feel comfortable and excited for their orthodontic journey to a beautiful smile. It is so rewarding to watch patients progress through treatment; seeing their confidence and th joy in their smile is very rewarding.

I am engaged to a wonderful man named Alexander. We have three fur-babies: Chester is an Alaskan Husky, Ruger is an American Bulldog, and Lola is an African Meyer’s parrot. I enjoy being outdoors — kayaking, swimming, hiking, camping, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling — but I also enjoy just lounging around home watching Netflix in my pajamas!

Suzanne

Orthodontic and SureSmile® Technician

I work alongside Dr. Bruce with patient care and utilize our SureSmile technology to help patients achieve their smile goals faster. My favorite part of my job is seeing the changes in our patients, whether in their confidence or their improved smiles. Seeing the patients grow in self-esteem as their new smiles develop is amazing; it is so rewarding to know you are really making a difference in their lives. Getting to know the patients and their families is also wonderful, especially when all of the siblings have been treated or as the younger patients grow up and return to visit. Our patients and our team become like family.

I am a mom of an amazing teenage boy and two cats. I have been in a band for more than 20 years. It is super fun and is something I will continue to do as long as I can. I love the outdoors, too: I am a hunter, fisherman, and camper, and play softball and volleyball during the summer. I like to be active and plan to run another race this spring. I am up for most things, except bungee jumping and maybe alligator wrestling!

Teresa

Appointment Coordinator

My smile is one of the first things to greet patients when they walk through our doors. I am here to schedule appointments, post payments, and even assist at chairside if needed. I have been a part of this practice since 1975. In that time, I’ve gotten to know so many patients and have seen so many beautiful smiles come and go at our office. I love meeting new people every day and helping them any way possible. I especially enjoy seeing our young patients come in the door with their families, and watching as their self-esteem grows with every visit!

Ashley

Orthodontic Technician

I help Dr. Bruce with every unique case, and assist with removing and placing wires, taking impressions, and pouring models. I also help as a lab tech and take turns answering the phones, or scanning files into the computer. I love coming into the office and working with everyone here, but my favorite part of my job is helping all our patients achieve their very best smiles. We are a very close knit office which gives us time to get to know our patients on a personal level.

When I’m not in the office, I love to read and write, and hope to become an author one day. I have a cat that I treat like a child: She’s very spoiled! My boyfriend and I enjoy puzzles, board games, and card games together. I love to swim, hike, ride bikes, and camp; in fact, if you gave me the option to camp all summer, I would! I enjoy family time with my sisters, nieces, and nephew as well.

Darla

Orthodontic Technician

I joined Dr. Bruce’s office in 2016. Since then, I’ve been active in helping the doctor with patient care, lab work, and sterilization. I enjoy working with patients to create a smile that they deserve and have always wanted. I also love working with our team; everyone is so nice and fun to work with. It’s a great feeling to come to work and have a great time!

I am originally from Montana and moved here with my family in 2016. I have one young son, Easton, and my husband Randy, who coaches hockey in our community. We love to go fishing and camping in the summertime, and love to travel at least once a year.
