Orthodontic Technician

I grew up in the Denver area, before moving to Fort Collins in 2011. I have been a dental assistant for more than 28 years with 20 of those years in the same pediatric dental office. I have 2 grown daughters, as well as a new grandson! I am with you from beginning to end on your orthodontic appointments and my goal is to make you as comfortable as I can.




Business Assistant

I am here to help you with all your financial needs. I will gladly go over your consent forms with you, handle your patient accounts, and answer billing questions you may have. I am also responsible for paying office invoices and handling office accounts. Dr. Way’s practice is such a great place to work. Everyone here is so friendly and I am honored to be a part of it. In my spare time, I love to take advantage of the Colorado Mountains and go snowboarding, hiking and camping. I was born and raised in Canada so whenever I get the opportunity I love traveling up north to visit family and friends.

Orthodontic Technician

I am here to help you with your orthodontic needs. I’ve always had a passion for helping people and decided a career in this field was just right for me. I love being able to assist in all your orthodontic adjustments. I was blessed to join Dr. Way’s office in 2014. The patients and staff here are amazing! In my free time I enjoy hikes in the mountains, soaking up the hot summer sun, boating, BBQ’s and of course shopping. I also have an awesome one of a kind cat named Jamison that I adore!




Insurance Coordinator

I work hard to make sure all of your questions regarding your contract are answered before your treatment begins, and I am your go-between person with your insurance company. Regarding your benefits, I make sure things are processed smoothly, and my attention to detail ensures that your account is maintained accurately. I have a big soccer family. All three of the guys in my life - my husband of 28 years and my two boys - either coach or play soccer; however, my two girls and I prefer shopping. We have a second home in Leon Guanajuato, Mexico, and we plan to retire there in the future.




Treatment Coordinator

I am here to help you during your very important and exciting first appointment in our office. I take photos and scans, and I answer any questions you have before you see Dr. Way. After his evaluation, I will discuss your treatment options, go over the costs associated with your treatment, explain our payment plans, and even help you schedule your follow-up appointments. My reward is in knowing how happy and good our patients feel about themselves with their new smiles. When I am not at the office, my husband, Doug, and I enjoy keeping busy on our ranch, and we love spending time with our two daughters and our very special granddaughter.





I was born in Jalisco, Mexico and raised in Pingree, Idaho on a family farm. I have been married for 20 years and I have 3 boys and 1 girl. We moved to Colorado in October 2015 from Albuquerque where I worked for a dentist for 3 years. I am here to answer your calls and get you checked in and out. I Joined Dr. Way's practice in November 2015.




Orthodontic Technician

Originally from Sinaloa, Mexico, I've been living in Colorado since I was 5 years old. I attended the Academy of Orthodontic Assistant and completed it in November 2015. I am blessed to join Dr. Way and his great staff. I am involved in direct patient care and I am looking forward to meeting all of you.
