Team work is essential to achieving your orthodontic goals. That's why at Johnsonlink Orthodontics we have put together an amazing team of highly trained, hard-working and courteous staff, who are each personally committed to giving you, not only excellent orthodontic results, but a superb overall experience.
Darcie has worked in orthodontics as a clinical assistant since 2001. She took a few years off to have three beautiful children and came back in 2016. She likes to watch football with her family, and this year has started running with friends.
"I really enjoy my job and the wonderful people I work with. But, my favorite part is getting to know my patients. I love joking and laughing with people and hope that sometimes I can make someone's day."
Mariza has been part of the practice since 2007. Spending time with family is number one to her, and when not in the office she likes to hike and explore national parks.
"I love bonding with patients and my co-workers. Both make it fun to come to work. I want people to know that we can make braces be an awesome experience, not just a means to an end."
Tiffiny has worked as an orthodontic assistant since 2000. When not assisting she enjoys being outside, hiking, gardening, cooking, music and movies. She is a country girl at heart, having grown up in southern Idaho.
"I love the Johnsonlink team. We are truly a family away from family...Helping patients gain confidence in themselves and their smiles is absolutely fulfilling to me."
Teba has been with the practice as an assistant since 2008. She enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, especially if it involves shopping. She loves working with patients and being a hands-on part of their treatment.
"I would love people to know that here at Johnsonlink Orthodontics our main priority is the patients' experience. From the first phone call to the time they get their braces off we strive to make their whole experience memorable and enjoyable."

Yes, his real name is Grande, and he has been working with us since 2014, already having eleven years of experience. If anything, his name (which means large) describes his personality. He loves coaching football and spending time with his beautiful family.
"My favorite part of orthodontics is taking braces off and revealing the new smiles...I want patients to expect to have a great time when they come into our office. This isn't work, it's fun!"
Kelly had many years of experience as a general dental assistant before joining our practice in 2005. She loves being with her family, and together they enjoy camping, hiking, and traveling.
"We have a great staff that love what they do and enjoy working together. This is what makes our office a fun place to work and a great place to get your orthodontic care."
Jordan joined our laboratory team in 2015. Previously he had worked for us as a sterilizer so he was already familiar with the Johnsonlink team. Jordan loves sports, video games, and spending quality time with his wife and son.

Lily joined our team in 2015 as our sterilizer. Since then, Lily has moved into the position of records technician and really enjoys getting to meet with our patients when they need different types x-rays, photos, etc. In her free time Lily loves hanging out with her boyfriend Daniel, her dog Abby, and going to concerts.
"I love getting to be that person who gets to see someone's new smile for the first time after those braces come off. Getting to take the very first photo of a patient after braces come off is such a rewarding moment. They truly are smiling from ear to ear!"
Isaac joined our team in early 2017. Without Isaac we wouldn't be able to function as a team as well as we do. Isaac keeps our stations clean and organized for us. Isaac is one of 11 kids and loves spending time with his family and friends. He is hard at work completing his bachelors degree anytime he isn't out surfing at Westport.
"I love getting to make our environment a safe place for patients and my fellow team mates to work. I take pride in my job knowing that I get to help with the importance of a clean and efficient workplace."
