Selina is our Cruise Director. She likes to take selfies and send them to us. She also hangs them on the office wall in place of the rest of our team pictures (including Dr). Her favorite thing to do is take selfies. She is obsessed with Mumford and Sons. One of her greatest talents is that she can clean carpet better than anyone in the Treasure Valley. She has three children and three dogs, one being a very very fat Chiwawa. She likes to sleep and drink Pepsi. Sleep A LOT and drink A LOT of Pepsi.

She brightens our day every time she walks in. She brings our fish back to life.

She is the Walter White to our office. We can't function without her.

PS At one point, she had a very noticeable mustache.

Lead Clinical Assistant
CeeJay has worked as an orthodontic assistant with us since she was in high school in early 2005 and she truly loves everything about orthodontics, which our patients and their families can tell. She is one of the cheerful, friendly faces that our patients see during their regular visits. She knew since she was 13 years old that she wanted to work in the field of orthodontics. When she had braces as a teen, she really connected with the assistants at the orthodontic office she went to, and she passes that friendly enthusiasm on to everyone in our office on a daily basis. She was born and raised in Idaho, and graduated from Kuna High. She enjoys shopping, jet boating, camping and doing things with friends and family and is happily married to her high school sweetheart, Jake, and they have two adorable kids!

Clinical Assistant
Kim grew up in Baker City, Oregon where she graduated from high school, and where her family, including her adorable little sister (who is 6 years younger than her) still live. She tries to visit them as much as she can. After high school, she went to dental assisting school because she always knew that working at an orthodontist office was what she wanted to do.
