Meet the Team

Alicia

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.

Analisa

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!

Joanna

Registered Dental Assistant

I started working here in 2006 and love improving smiles in our community. You’ll meet me in our clinic. I set up the treatment area, sterilize tools and equipment, and make sure you’re comfortable in the chair. Staying chairside, I’ll assist Dr. Wesslen and support you at the same time. I love seeing the progress of each person as people go through treatment. Everyone becomes more confident and so much happier. I’m excited that I’ll be part of helping you develop a beautiful smile, too!

My family keeps me busy outside of work. My husband and I are very involved with our three children’s soccer, basketball, baseball, and softball teams. Our family also enjoys traveling and spending time with loved ones, including our dog.

Laurie

Registered Dental Assistant

I’ve been with the practice since 1983 and love everything about it, but especially our patients. 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 to see how people change and grow during treatment. It’s amazing how a new smile improves people’s lives and gives them confidence. It’s going to be fun to help you change your life, and I’m looking forward to being part of your journey!

When I’m not working, my favorite times are spent with family. I’m happily married and have two children. Right now I have three grandchildren and another two are on the way! I’m also very active in the community through different organizations.

Sherrie

Registered Dental Assistant

I have been with the practice since 1973 and treasure every friend I’ve made here. I’ll seat you, explain what we’ll be doing, and get you ready for your procedure. Working chairside, I’ll assist Dr. Wesslen while talking with you about what’s happening. Orthodontics is an amazing field: We help people to make a long-term, positive change in their life! Nothing makes me happier than supporting and encouraging a patient during treatment and seeing them finish with a smile they love.

My favorite times outside of work are spent with my grown daughter and two grandsons. I love watching my grandsons participate in high school rodeo.

Theresa

Registered Dental Assistant

I am a relative newcomer to the practice, having joined in 2013, and can’t imagine a happier, more supportive environment. I sterilize the treatment area, prepare the tools, and will seat you. During your procedure, I’ll be at your side: helping Dr. Wesslen while talking with you and making sure you’re comfy. I love meeting people and learning about their lives. It’s an honor to be part of creating beautiful smiles, and I love that our patients are so excited about treatment! I know you’ll have a great orthodontic experience and am happy to be part of that.

When away from work, I’m often traveling, reading, watching sports, or hanging out with my family.
