Meet Our Doctor

My profession is the culmination of years of hard work and dedication that have provided me the opportunity to change people’s lives. Every day that I come to work I look forward to the exciting challenges that must be met to achieve my patients’ treatment goals. Working with an incredible team of individuals makes those challenges much easier to overcome. My life is enriched by my patients and I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to develop relationships with them. Orthodontics is about more than just straightening teeth. It’s about building confidence and self-esteem that enables people to get the most out of their lives.

Meet Our Staff

My job is to keep the practice running smoothly and efficiently. I work to ensure that our team can focus on delivering personal care to each wonderful patient. I also have the opportunity to oversee the handling of all financial arrangements and insurance billings, to make sure that each family is comfortable with their payment arrangements throughout the course of treatment. Occasionally, you may even see me with the clinical team, providing additional support to Dr. Thornton. I love coming to work every day knowing that I have the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life and work within a genuinely kind and thoughtful team.

I was raised in Eugene and I have been happily married to my high-school sweetheart for more than a 15 years. We love being part of this community because of the special blend of diversity and small town friendliness. I have an intelligent, beautiful high school daughter who lights up our family. Together, we enjoy the outdoors, hiking and camping.
