Two New Friendly Faces
You may have heard them on the phone, you may have seen their smiling faces at the front desk. We are happy to introduce our newest team members: Talia and Bekah! Talia and Bekah both have strong customer service skills and come from past medical job experiences. They live in our area and have been amazing additions to our group! Make sure to introduce yourself the next time you're in for an appointment.
Welcome, Bekah!
Welcome, Talia!
We ❤️ Our Team!

Back in October, our very own Talia created a scary beautiful pumpkin for us to enter in the Village Orthodontics Halloween contest, and guess what? Her creation won 3rd place! While Talia was rewarded for her efforts with a generous gift card prize, our entire team got to vote on what we should do with the other visa gift card. In true selfless fashion, our amazing group wanted it to go toward the food shelf and Toys for Tots. Thank you ladies–what generous spirits you all have! 💕
Thanks Silver Lake Dental

We received this cheery bouquet from Silver Lake Dental as a thank you for being “on call.” We love what we do, and it's always a pleasure to help out colleagues in our industry to help keep smiles healthy all over the Twin Cities!

This bouquet was so stunning that Heather, Shelly, Talia, and Carolina were all hoping to take these beautiful flowers home at the end of the week. 💐
