AJ

AJ

Registered Dental Assistant/Clinical Supervisor

I work with both doctors to help provide quality care for the patients, including chairside assisting, manufacturing retainers, ordering supplies, and keeping the operatory flow running smoothly. With over 30 years of experience, 20 of those spent here in this office,  I’ve had the pleasure of seeing many patients’ teeth transform into a lifelong gift of a beautiful smile.

I love working with the doctors because they are both very dedicated to provide excellent orthodontic care. They do a great job of interacting with our patients and keeping the patients and parents informed regarding the progress of treatment. I love our team because they’re like an extended family that welcomes patients in as friends.

I feel so blessed to have two terrific daughters, Anna Lee and Shelby. I enjoy motorcycle rides, re-runs of “I Love Lucy”, bowling, and managing a WCLL special-needs baseball team on the weekends.

Scheduling Coordinator

As scheduling coordinator, it is my job to welcome you to our office, and to work with our families to find the best time to come in and see us. Part of my job is to make sure that you have an appointment scheduled before you leave the office, so that your treatment progresses smoothly.

I have 30 years experience in orthodontics, both as a registered dental assistant and at the front desk. I feel lucky to be working with doctors and staff members who really care about their patients. We strive to make each visit enjoyable, and to make sure that any questions you have are answered. It is very rewarding to see the confidence that having a great smile brings, and to see patients that are happy to come in for their visit.

In my free time I enjoy playing golf with my husband, Steve, as well as reading and knitting. I am a big Oakland A's fan, and like to go to games with my daughters, Carly and Valerie.

Treatment Coordinator

As our treatment coordinator, I meet with all our new patients and assist them in beginning their treatment.  I joined Wafelbakker Anderson Orthodontics In October, 2013  and I have worked in dentistry for 18 years exclusively in orthodontics. I really enjoy the experience of helping patients increase their confidence by achieving a smile that lasts a lifetime.

I am thrilled to be a part of such a fun team; our office is a great place to spend the day! I find my time here especially rewarding because I am able to help both doctors create an individual treatment option that is a good fit for each patient.  I am happy to assist patients through the entire orthodontic process; our goal is to provide a smooth, pleasant and fun experience!

I enjoy cooking, shopping and watching my sons, Dominic and Vincent, play basketball and football.  We love being outdoors and spending time with family friends.

Megan

Registered Dental Assistant

I work as an assistant to both doctors, with duties including sterilizing instruments, taking X-rays, manufacturing retainers, and providing our patients with a great experience. I love working with kids all day and being a part of changing such an important part of people’s lives.  It’s amazing to watch a worried child come in the first day, and by the time they’re a few appointments into treatment, seeing them run through the door and become so comfortable with our office and team.

I enjoy working with two of the most knowledgeable doctors in our area. They make our patients feel comfortable by taking the time to interact with them on a one-on-one basis.  The rest of my office team is like a family so I can honestly say I truly enjoy coming to work every day.

When I’m not at work, there’s nothing more I love than heading out of town with my husband, Ben, and two kids, Ryder and Hattie, for a great weekend outdoors. Camping, fishing, or anything with wheels will work!

 

Val

Valentina

Registered Dental Assistant

I work as an RDA chairside assistant to Dr. Wafelbakker and Dr. Anderson. I have been working in the orthodontic field for over 17 years. I love working with the doctors in creating beautiful smiles. I believe that nothing you wear is more important than your smile, and I love being a part of that. Seeing the happiness that orthodontic treatment brings to people is priceless!

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a wonderful husband, and 2 children, Tyler and Mia, who keep me very busy. I enjoy cooking camping, dirt bikes, and most of all spending time with my family and friends.

Clinical Sterilizer

Seeing everyone's dedication to patients, and how comfortable the patients are with the doctors and assistants made me realize that's how I want my career to be; comfortable, fun, but professional. I've been here since July of 2015 (sterilizing), and I wouldn't want to work anywhere else.

 When I'm not at work, I'm doing a million other things, I'm either at school (DVC), going on adventures with my best friends, camping with friends and family, travelling with my boyfriend, riding/racing dirt bikes, and throughout all of this- photography is my favorite hobby (so I take pictures of EVERYTHING).
