Meet the Team

Our team is passionate about excellence and compassion in all aspects of our profession. Together, we pledge to build a solid caring relationship with our patients and their families to achieve a healthy, lasting smile. We are very proud of the services we provide and when you or your child have completed orthodontic treatment with us we hope that you will be wholeheartedly recommending your friends and families to our office. Put simply, our goal is to exceed your expectations of an orthodontic office!

We are especially interested in making all our patients feel right at home. With a combined total of over 100 years of orthodontic and dental experience, our office team is trained and skilled. Providing energetic and fun-loving but always professional service to each patient, our team members all share a strong commitment to continually deliver the very best orthodontic care!  

You will meet the following staff when you get started with your orthodontic care:

Tanya – Office Manager/Treatment CoordinatorTanya - Treatment Coordinator

As a treatment coordinator, I get to see our new patients at their first visit and I love getting them excited about our office. I also love coming to work for such an incredible doctor and loving, friendly staff.  We have a great team! I enjoy working with people and the relationships we build with our patients during their treatment.  It is also very rewarding watching the joy and confidence in our patients as their smiles are transformed. My husband, Tim, and I have been married for 26 years. We have two children, Tyler and Tanner, and a new granddaughter (I love being her “Mimi”!).  I enjoy spending time with my family, whether we are hiking, fishing, camping, or just hanging out. I also love shopping with my mom and watching a good movie.

Patti – Financial CoordinatorPatti - Financial Coordinator

I take care of the financial aspects of our patients’ orthodontic treatment. Seeing the difference that orthodontics makes in a person’s life is the best part of working here. They finish with more that just a great smile, but improved confidence and self-esteem as well. I am originally from Wisconsin and live here with my husband, Justin, and our dog Sadie.  I love to travel, especially to the ocean. I also enjoy bike riding, playing cards, hiking, and spending time with my family.

Mary – Treatment CoordinatorMary - Scheduling Coordinator/Treatment Coordinator

As our scheduling coordinator, I make sure our office runs on time for the convenience of our patients. Working with Dr. Hilgers and the rest of our great staff is really a lot of fun, but the highlight of my day is seeing how everyone can have a healthy, beautiful smile through orthodontics. My husband, Robert, and I have two children, Ryan and Robert Jr., and a shih tzu puppy name Roxy Pearl. I enjoy spending time with my family and shopping. I also volunteer with the Domestic Violence Shelter and help raise money for women and children.
