Theresa

Treatment Coordinator

I’m lucky to meet and welcome new patients and families to Drangsholt Orthodontics. I love each patient’s enthusiasm and watching that excitement grow as they move through treatment. Seeing beautiful, life-changing smiles is the most remarkable part of my work! After starting in the dental field in 1990, I joined Dr. Drangsholt in 2003 and immediately knew this team and office was the right place for me.

When not at the office, I have fun spending quality time with my family, friends and sweet dog Bella. I enjoy traveling, exploring the outdoors, relaxing, and escaping into a good book.

 

Elisa

Treatment Coordinator

It is an absolute joy to welcome our new patients and friends to the Drangsholt Orthodontic family!  Dr. Drangsholt makes it fun to come to work by bringing great positive energy each and everyday to the office.  I know that our amazing team will provide the excellence of service each patient deserves, and that they will enjoy the process along the way! Seeing our patients enjoy their new beautiful smile is very rewarding. I joined our team in 2007, bringing with me years of experience and continuing education.  I help out with marketinig our office and enjoy communicating with all of our wonderful referrals!

I’m married and have two grown sons. When I’m not at the office, I enjoy time with my family and friends. My hobbies include watercolor painting, hiking, boating and camping.

 

Brianna

Orthodontic Assistant

I look forward to meeting each and every new patient and getting to know them.  I’ve been part of Drangsholt Orthodontics since 2000 and treasure the long-term relationships that have grown with our patients. It’s fun to help people I care about achieve their best smile! I provide chairside assistance, supporting Dr. Drangsholt, and make sure that we have all the best products to serve our patients! I also help with the social marketing and try and make each and every visit fun for our patients!

I’m happily married and have two young sons. When we’re not working, my family loves to travel, go hiking and biking, and most outdoor activities. I also enjoy photography projects.

 

Jessica

Orthodontic Assistant

I spend my days helping others achieve the beautiful smile they’ve always wanted.  I started working in the dental field in 2007 and found my professional home with Dr. Drangsholt and my teammates in 2016. I can’t imagine a more positive, supportive practice, where everyone works hard to make our patients smile at every visit. I enjoy building relationships while helping people achieve a beautiful smile. I assist Dr. Drangsholt with orthodontic procedures and I also help with sterilization and and making retainers.

When not working, I love time with my spouse and two amazing sons. I enjoy going on outdoor adventures with my boys, hiking, and reading. Time with family and friends is a priority for me!

 

Kelsey

Orthodontic Assistant

I enjoy helping Dr. Drangsholt and my teammates in creating our patients’ beautiful smiles. Most of the time, I can be found working chairside and assisting with band and wire changes, putting braces on and taking them off, and providing hygiene instructions.

I love exploring the mountains and the woods. Tacos are my favorite food. The 4th of July is my favorite holiday. I love to read books. My partner in crime is my boyfriend Justin and we share a house on a tiny little ranch in Puyallup. I have one younger brother named Derek. Shopping at Target is always a good idea. I love all music but country is my go-to favorite. Sitting around a campfire with good friends is my favorite past time. Summer is my favorite time of year because I love the sun but fall is the most beautiful time of year because I love the pretty colors of the trees.
