we want to see you smile

Meet the Team

Behind every great orthodontic practice is a great team. We are very proud of our staff at Southwest Orthodontics. As you proceed through your orthodontic care, you will come to appreciate the professionalism and caring attitude the staff has to offer.

We believe that our best results are attained when our patients are engaged in the process. We encourage questions and appreciate seeing friends and family interested in our patients’ treatment. Our patients greatly appreciate this approach, and we are confident you will too. We believe orthodontics should be a pleasant experience: one you would recommend to your family and friends without hesitation.

Dental Assistant

I graduated from the dental assisting program at Iowa Western Community College in 1985 and joined Southwest Orthodontists that same year. It’s been a wonderful 30+ years of helping to make great smiles! Dr. Wulf and our staff are like working with family. I couldn’t ask for a better support team.

I have been married to Terry for more than three decades years. We have three children and one grandbaby, with whom I happily spend most of my free time.

I am a 1993 graduate of IWCC, where I obtained my registration in dental assisting. At Southwest Orthodontics since 2004, I serve as our financial coordinator: I help patients and families navigate through payment plans and insurance coverage. I enjoy being a part of creating happy patients and beautiful smiles!

My husband Andrew and I have two children: Alexis is a student at BVU in Storm Lake and Skyler is a student at Underwood High School. I enjoy attending my children’s soccer games and all their other activities. In our spare time, Andrew and I love camping and volunteering at local shelters.

I joined Southwest Orthodontics in 2017 and serve as our administrative coordinator. I am here to greet patients, make them feel welcome, and assist them with all their scheduling needs. I enjoy getting to know our patients and their families on an individual basis, and seeing their smiles transform throughout their treatment.

I am married with triplet boys and have four grandbabies. I also have three fur baby cats, one puppy, chickens, and rabbits! I love all outdoor activities, especially fishing and camping, but when the weather doesn’t cooperate, I love to bake and cook.
