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.


Front Office Manager

As the Front Office Manager for Village and Minneapolis Orthodontics, I am one of the first person you will see when you walk in. I will greet you and take your calls with a smile at the front desk. I enjoy helping our patients with their orthodontic scheduling needs and other questions that arise. I utililize my experience helping the front office team stay organized at the front desk to make your visit with us the best it can be. I have worked in orthodontics since 2000, and I really enjoy being a part of this great team.

I live in St. Michael with my husband (Lorne) and our two teenage sons (Derek and Dylan). We have a yellow lab (Shasta) and two Bengal cats (Myles and Ginger). We enjoy camping at our seasonal campsite up north, bowling and spending time together as a family.


Licensed Dental Assistant

As a chairside assistant, I work alongside our doctors, do lab work, and help at the front desk when needed. I love going to work! Not only do I feel part of a team, but also part of the community. I enjoy getting to know the patients and their families. Originally from Blaine, Minnesota, I have been in dentistry since 2001 and with Village and Minneapolis Orthodontics since October of 2011. My favorite thing about working in orthodontics is providing our patients with beautiful smiles. It's a team effort that is rewarding for us all. Dr. Wahl is very talented and has an eye for detail. He provides a positive and comfortable environment, and I look forward to working with him each day.

I live with my husband, Matt, and our cat, Kitty Marie. In my free time I enjoy visiting with family and friends, freelance make-up artistry, listening to music, playing hockey, and trying new arts and crafts.


Financial Coordinator, Licensed Dental Assistant

The best part about working at the front desk of VIllage Orthodontics is meeting and getting to know our patients, the atmosphere of the office, and my coworkers! I began in the field of dentistry in 1979 and at Minneapolis and Village Orthodontics in 2004. My favorite thing about working in orthodontics is seeing all the beautiful smiles! I enjoy working with Dr. Wahl because of his enthusiasm for orthodontics and sincerity to his patients.

I am from Columbia Heights but have lived in New Brighton since 1986. My husband, Mark, and I have two sons, Tom and Nick, a daughter, Lacey, and Ryder, our dog. I became a grandma in the spring of 2014 and I love any chance I get to be with my grandson, Kallen. I love spending time with my family, going to our cabin on Mille Lacs Lake, gardening, and cooking.


Licensed Dental Assistant

In addition to assisting our doctors at chairside, I’m also responsible for professional relations and marketing. I truly love my job and feel thankful everyday - talking to and learning from each and every patient. They inspire me!  I also love seeing our patients' confidence change throughout the process of improving their smiles. On a professional relations side, I thoroughly enjoy the relationships I have developed within the dental community.  My career at Minneapolis and Village Orthodontics began in May, 2002 (my first and only job after graduating from dental assisting school). Dr. Wahl makes our offices’ atmosphere warm, friendly and inviting, which makes it easy to work alongside him every day; not to mention his great attention to detail that makes it an honor to be a part of:)

My family includes my husband, Jeremiah, my daughter, Josie, my son, Jase, a Pug, Nelly and a German wire hair pointer, Abe. In my free time I enjoy yoga, playing hockey, bowling, running, biking, long walks, going to the cabin and being surrounded by family and friends.


Lead Assistant, Licensed Dental Assistant

I assist our doctors during patient procedures and make sure our patients are as comfortable as possible. I also help out the rest of my team wherever I am needed, whether it is in the lab or at the front desk. Our doctors are very good at what they do, and I enjoy seeing them create beautiful smiles. I have worked at Minneapolis and Village Orthodontics since July, 2011. There is nothing better than coming to work and seeing all the wonderful smiles we’ve helped to create!

I recently purchased a home in Fridley, and have enjoyed all the renovations and decorating. I have two kitties, Chunk and Zazu. My free time is spent coaching and playing volleyball, going to the cabin (in Hackensack), being with friends and family, and cheering on all Minnesota sports teams!


Treatment Coordinator, Licensed Dental Assistant

I have worked in the field of orthodontics since 1989 and at Village and Minneapolis Orthodontics since 2011. I greet all our new patients and their families, help them to get acquainted with our office, and communicate with referring dentists, physicians, and any other specialists needed during treatment. My favorite thing about working with Dr. Wahl is that he pays very close attention to details, listens, and change lives one smile at a time. I’m very proud to be a part of his team.

My family includes my husband Brian, three girls Malia, Madeline, and Makenna, and two step-sons, Dylan and Garret. We also have four dogs (one that we adopted from Mexico) and a pet chinchilla. In my free time I enjoy attending my children's activities, traveling to Mexico, and going to Alexandria during the summer.


Licensed Dental Assistant

I love the people I work with and being able to see our patients on a monthly basis so I can really get to know them. I’ve gotten to know so many people as I assist during their appointments or greet them at the front desk. I have worked in the field of dentistry since 1987 and at Village Orthodontics since June of 1987. The best thing about orthodontics is helping patients with their self-esteem and seeing them grow with their new smiles. I love the wonderful family atmosphere at Minneapolis and Village Orthodontics, too!

I grew up in New Brighton, but have lived in Fridley since 2009 with my dogs, Chico and Princess. I got married to Myron in fall of 2013 and I love being married. Myron has introduced me to racing and snowmobiling which are two of my favorite hobbies nowadays. We recently purchased property on Blue Lake in which we love to get away for the weekends.


Licensed Dental Assistant

I have always had a passion for orthodontics. As a patient of braces once myself, it is truly gratifying to be able to help others in their experience to perfect their smile. I have been assisting for Dr. Wahl as a team member of the Village & Minneapolis Orthodontics since April, 2013. It has been amazing to be a part of such a talented team. As an assistant for the doctor, the most rewarding part is to see the confidence the patients gain when they complete treatment.

I currently live in Oakdale, MN with my other half, David, our two daughters, Aisley and Annika, and our two cats. I enjoy keeping active with softball, hockey, running around with my girls, and being surrounded by the people I care about the most, my friends and family.


Licensed Dental Assistant

I graduated in 2010 as an LDA and began my career at a nonprofit dental office. It was always my intention to get into orthodontics. Having braces as a teenager changed my life and built my confidence and I want to be a part of that experience with others. Working alongside Dr. Wahl, and the team here at Village & Minneapolis Orthodontics to date has been a great experience and I enjoy learning from them every day.

I am originally from Centerville, Minnesota. I have two cats, Ricky and Lucy. In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends and family, snowboarding, good books, and participating in the Polar Bear Plunge in support of the Special Olympics.
