The Amazing and Caring Team at Smile Orthodontics



Certified Orthodontic Assistant

I’ve been working as a certified orthodontic assistant for seven years. Time flies! The one thing that I love most about my job is our wonderful patients. It’s so much fun to meet our new patients and see them leave our office happy with the care they’ve received. I enjoy working closely with the people I love. I consider our patients family and I love hearing their latest news.

I recently was engaged to my amazing fiancé. We have a naughty puppy who we adore. I am a native to Utah and love all things outdoors. My free time is spent with friends and family, biking, swimming, and hiking. I also like to do a bit of hang gliding when the wind is juuuuust right. Go Utes!




Certified Orthodontic Assistant

I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Sports Medicine and pre-dental studies. My goal has always been to one day become a orthodontist! Until I graduate with the coveted orthodontic credentials, I love learning about orthodontics and helping Dr. Bonafide take amazing care of our valued patients. I love the team here at Smile Orthodontics. What a fantastic group of people. We share the goal of providing the highest possible orthodontic care in a compassionate and healthy environment.

When I’m not at the office, I spend a lot of my time studying, but in free moments, I enjoy reading fantasy novels and discovering new hiking trails in the canyon.




Director of Operations

I earned my certification in assisting in 2005 and then set my heart on director of operations. I love helping people. It warms my heart to see one of our valued patients confident in their smiles.It’s something I get to see every day, and it’s the best part of the job. My goal is to make sure that every one of our patients has a fantastic experience here at Smile Orthodontics.

When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with Charlie (my iguana), practicing mixed martial arts, and trying out new recipes to share with my friends.
