Meet the Team

Meet the Team

We recognize that all of 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.


Clinical Assistant

I really enjoy meeting new people and helping them feel more confident about their appearance. I feel privileged to help our patients have a comfortable, positive experience at Bauer Orthodontics. My days here are filled with smiles, whether I’m working alongside Dr. Bauer with patient care or instructing patients on how to care for their teeth with braces. I genuinely enjoy the entire process of creating new smiles!

Outside of work, I love spending time with my two beautiful girls and our dogs. We live out in the country so it is always an adventure!


Financial Coordinator

I love seeing a parent or patient smile when we find a financial plan that fits their budget. This means they’ll get the treatment they or their child needs! It’s great to work at a practice where we place the patients and families at the forefront, including their financial needs. In addition to discussing and setting up financial plans, I also help patients get the most from their insurance. I file their insurance claims and post payments, too.

My husband and I have been married for more than 30 years. We have three grown children along with a daughter-in-law and son-in-law. Best of all, we have an AWESOME grandson that keeps us very busy exploring life! In my spare time, I love spending time on our farm, being out in the barn with the horses, and doing all kinds of outside projects.


Clinical Assistant

I love interacting with and becoming friends with our patients. I make sure they know what’s going to happen during their visit and help provide care that is as comfortable as possible. It’s important to me that our patients know we care about them and are here for them throughout their smile transformation. It makes me feel good seeing the patients’ positive reactions and knowing I was part of the process.

Outside of work, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family, traveling, and participating in anything that involves the outdoors. I love playing sports of any kind. My favorite thing is spoiling my dog Czar. We like to go for long walks and play fetch.


Clinical Assistant

I love meeting new people and getting to know them during treatment. Watching a person’s personality blossom as they see their new smile appear cannot be beat! I provide chairside assistance to Dr. Bauer during procedures like changing wires and placing brackets. The best moment is when we remove a patient’s braces. I love seeing the joy on a person’s face as they look at their before and after photos!

When I’m not working, I love spending time with my two kids: they are my world! I enjoy running outdoors, with my daughter and my dog. I enjoy watching movies, too.


Clinical Assistant

I love making a difference, one smile at a time! Each of our patients has their own needs and we are attentive to them. We want a patient to finish treatment with a smile they love and to have enjoyed the process of getting it. During a patient’s visit, I assist Dr. Bauer. I work chairside, supporting the doctor while telling our patient what we’re doing. The best part of my job is spending my days helping my friends get the beautiful smile they deserve.

Outside of work, I’m an adventure seeker. I love traveling and taking my two dogs for long walks at the park. My husband and I also enjoy playing board games together.


Appointment Coordinator

I love that my job doesn’t feel like a job: it’s a pleasure to work in a positive, supportive environment, where we make smile dreams come true! I love watching our patients’ transformations, in their smile and in their confidence. The joy on a patient’s face when they see their new smile is the best moment! I schedule visits that work with patients’ and families’ busy lives. I also answer questions about orthodontic care.

I’m happily married to my best friend, Jeff, and we have five kids along with seven grandkids. I love to cook and decorate cakes. I also love watching my youngest play sports and spending as much time as possible with my family and animals.


Clinical Assistant, Treatment Coordinator, and Lab Tech

I wear several hats in our office and love all of them! It’s fun to get to know new patients and families at their consultation, seeing their excitement at getting a new smile. I like answering their questions and making sure their treatment experience is wonderful. I also offer chairside assistance during procedures, supporting the patient and Dr. Bauer. Additionally, I handle our inventory and lab work.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my family. I married my high school sweetheart and we have two beautiful boys. I love the country life and enjoy scrapbooking and crafting.


Clinical Assistant

I assist Dr. Bauer during patient visits, which includes changing wires and placing and removing brackets. The last part is the best—removing patients’ braces and seeing their new, beautiful smiles! Since joining the team, I’ve really enjoyed our fun and wonderful office environment. I love that we all work together to give our patients amazing smiles!

When I’m not at work, I love spending time with friends and family. I enjoy being at the lake hiking and spending time with my dogs.


Clinical Assistant

I show our patients a great experience every time they walk through the door. Whether I’m assisting Dr. Bauer during visits or educating patients on how to care for their appliances, I always have a smile on my face! Being a part of such a life-changing experience for our patients is one of the most rewarding parts of my job. I also love working with our awesome team!

I love my gorgeous kitty Lola. We enjoy naptime together, eating together, and playing together!


Treatment Coordinator

I love spending my days around people who are happy to be getting new smiles. Watching a person as they move through treatment, and seeing their happy, beautiful smiles at the end, never grows old! I give office tours and introduce patients and parents to orthodontics. I assist Dr. Bauer during new patient consultations and exams, answering everyone’s questions. I also review treatment plans and make sure families and patients understand their care options.

My husband Les and I have been married for more than 20 years. Our daughter, Courtney, is in nursing school and our son, Caleb, is about to start high school. We have a farm, raise cattle, and ride mules in our free time. We have two dogs and a micro mini pig, named Maggie, too. I enjoy running. My daughter and I recently completed our first half marathon!
