Meet the Team


Front Office

I’ve been with the practice since 2002 and you’ll meet me at the front desk. I’ll greet and check you in, update your records, and help you schedule visits. I’ll also work with you on financial matters, and I handle the insurance billing, too. If you ever have questions or need anything, don’t hesitate to ask! I enjoy working with our patients from the moment they walk in to the moment they leave. It’s incredible to watch each person gain confidence, and we love to celebrate their beautiful smiles!

As for my personal life, I’m the proud mother of two beautiful girls. They are my pride and joy.


Front Office

I joined the practice in 2011, and look forward to meeting you. I work at our front desk, where I’ll welcome you with a big smile. I’ll check you in, help with paperwork and records, and find appointment times that fit with your busy life. I’ll also help you on financials and insurance. I love watching each patient’s smile transformation and seeing the confidence they gain. Our smiles are so important and I know you’re going to be happier and healthier, and finish treatment with a smile you love!

Outside of work, my two daughters and I love getting away to the beach as often as possible!


Registered Dental Assistant

I’ve been an RDA for a very long time. Dr. Wesslen is the third doctor I have worked for in this practice! I arrange the treatment area and will seat and prep you to see Dr. Wesslen. I’ll stay by your side during the procedure, to assist the doctor and make sure you’re comfortable in the process. I love helping our patients get a great smile and seeing the smile on their faces when they see their new smile!

I’m married and we have two children and five grandchildren. When I’m not at work, I’m busy on the dairy, watching our grandkids, and being involved in our community. We show dairy animals all over the state. My husband’s family has been in the dairy business for well over 100 years!


Registered Dental Assistant

I attended SJVC Visalia, and graduated in 2016 before joining the Wesslen Orthodontics team in 2019. I enjoy working with patients and making them feel comfortable and happy with their smile. I work alongside Dr. Wesslen with patient care, as well as sterilization and taking X-rays. Everyone is a team player and I can count on their help whenever I need it!

I love enjoying time with family, friends, and my pets. I enjoy traveling, seeing new places, and trying new foods. I also love helping out with my community cheer teams in any way I can to get involved. My favorite activity is shopping!


Front Desk

I’ve always had an interest in dentistry and orthodontics. Working at Wesslen Orthodontics has allowed me to expand that knowledge and I hope to learn much more. For now, you’ll find me at the front desk where I greet patients, schedule appointments, and take payments. I really enjoy meeting people and being able to be a part of the process that gets them to the smile they’d love to have.

I’m originally from Louisiana and moved to Visalia to get married to my husband in January 2020. Shortly after, we got our little pup Jarsey. My husband and I enjoy jamming out and playing music together in our spare time and at our church. We both love to travel, be at church, or just stay at home and play some video games. We had our son in August of 2022 and have never felt more blessed.


Dental Assistant

I attended San Joaquin Valley College’s dental assisting program and am excited to start my career at Wesslen Orthodontics. I enjoy that my job involves direct patient interaction: I take their initial records all the way through to their final photographs at the end of treatment. In between, I enjoy assisting Dr. Wesslen to get patients a perfect smile and make them more confident.

I am engaged to my partner of nine years. I have a big family, with eight sisters and one brother, so I love family time, whether we’re going on walks or just hanging out at home.

Registered Dental Assistant

I have been in the dental field for 12 years now. It’s been a great journey, one I started in 2010 at Reedley College. As a member of Wesslen Orthodontics, I work one-on-one with patients and alongside Dr. Wesslen to complete his treatment plans and give patients their ideal smiles. I enjoy helping patients and building relationships with them — they are what make my job interesting!

I have a little family I love very much. My husband and I have a beautiful daughter who is our whole world. We love spending time together, whether it be at the beach or just relaxed at home watching movies.

Registered Dental Assistant

I graduated from SJVC in 2016 and have spent the majority of my career here at Wesslen Orthodontics. My favorite part of my job is working with young patients to mak them feel comfortable and safe. I also enjoy building friendships with our patients and seeing them grow confidence in their smiles. My team and I all have the same goal: making sure our patients have smooth and efficient appointments.

My fiancée and I have two beautiful children, Gianna and Greg. On my free time, I love spending time with my family; we enjoy anything Disney, paint nights, going to the beach, and overall making memories together.
