Andrea

Administrative Staff, Clinical Assistant and Marketing Specialist

I assist Dr. Whetten during our patients’ appointments and welcome them into our office during their new patient exams.  Working in the orthodontic field allows me to meet so many different people and I have enjoyed getting to know our patients.  Dr. Whetten is not only a great orthodontist but he’s a great person as well.  And I have found myself grateful to work with a fun and energetic doctor.

I  have worked in Dentistry for over 13 years and served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day-Saints, Tulsa, OK Mission.  I received my education in Health Science from Brigham Young University Idaho. Received additional education in Ultrasound and Nutrition.  

On my down time I enjoy meeting health and fitness goals along with assisting others to do the same.  Traveling is essential and I find myself at the beach multiple times a year.

 


Paula

Administrative Staff and Insurance Specialist

As one of the first people our patients meet when they come into our office, my goal is to make them feel welcom and help them have an enjoyable experience.  I love making connections with our patients and their families and seeing them so happy with their new smiles.  Dr. Whetten turly cares for each patient and spends quality time with them.  He listens to their concerns and wants to exceed their expectations.  Our staff is like family and we want to help our patients feel like family too.  When I’m not at work with my Centennial Hills Orthodontic Family, I’m home with my other large family, nine wonderful children.  On my down time, which is rare, I enjoy reading.

I have been an orthodontic assistant with Dr. Whetten for the past 15 years and can be found working in the clinic area with our patients: taking records and making appointments.  Our patients are such unique individuals and I love getting to know all about their lives outside of our office.  My favorite part of working here is watching our patients’ smiles transform during treatment.  Our goal is to leave all of our patients and their families with a great impression and to make them feel comfortable and welcome during the time they spend with us.
