Welcome to my practice!

Orthodontics is truly my passion and I want your experience at Wendling Orthodontics to be rewarding and meaningful.  I find it incredibly gratifying to make positive changes in someone's smile.  It is also wonderful to observe the increased confidence and self-esteem that a healthy, beautiful smile can foster.  I value the relationships that often develop through the course of treatment and feel privileged to have the opportunity to make a positive impact on someone's life.

I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Michigan School Of Dentistry where I was inducted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon, an honorary dental society.  I chose to further my dental education and was accepted into the University of Michigan’s Rackham School of Graduate Studies in 1993.  I received my Master’s of Science degree in the specialty of Orthodontics in 1996.  I have been in practice at Wendling Orthodontics since 1998 and also serve as an examiner for the State of Michigan Orthodontic Specialty licensing examination.  

fam My husband, Allan, and I have two sons, Nolan and Spencer, and are proud to call Mid-Michigan home.  I enjoy photography, reading, water and snow sports as well as traveling.  Like many parents, Allan and I spend a great deal of time following our sons' many sporting events and school activities.  As a family, we also enjoy spending time in northern Michigan and chasing after our three lovable dogs. 

I am a member of the following organizations:
