Meet the Team

We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.

Schedule and Finance Coordinators

Our schedule and finance coordinators work in the front office filing insurance claims, scheduling appointments, creating financial arrangements, and helping patients understand treatment and insurance plans. They are licensed dental assistants with knowledge of both clinical and administrative aspects of our orthodontic practice.



Laurie has been in dentistry for 28 years, and has spent 12 of those years in orthodontics. Her favorite part of her job is getting to know our patients and their families during the few years they visit our office. She truly enjoys working with Dr. Wille and our highly experienced team.

Laurie has been married for 25 years and has two girls. When she’s not working or running kids to volleyball, softball, or voice lessons, she enjoys camping with her family and friends.



Lisa has more than 15 years of experience in administrative and chairside assisting in orthodontics and general practice. She joined our office in 2013; since then, she has enjoyed meeting new families and getting to know them on a personal level.

Lisa is married with one son. You can see her riding her motorcycle in the summer when she’s not watching movies with husband and son.

Dental Assistants

Our licensed dental assistants work alongside Dr. Wille in the clinic, providing assistance during the application of braces and wires, taking X-rays, impressions, and before/after photos, removing braces, and making retainers. Their education and experience makes them highly qualified to help our patients achieve the best smile possible, and their friendly personalities make all our patients comfortable.



Dawn joined Forest Lake Orthodontics in 1996, shortly after graduating with her LDA. In the 20 years she’s been with us, seeing patients’ smiles when their braces come off has never gotten old! Her own smile goes a long way in creating our office’s positive, fun environment.

Dawn is married and has three children. She loves watching her kids play sports and going on vacation with her family.



Jane brings a wealth of knowledge to our practice gained during her 32 years of dental and orthodontic experience. We’ve been fortunate to have her for 20 of those years! Jane’s greatest joy is seeing the happy smiles of our patients when they’ve finished treatment.

Jane and her husband have two sons, both in college working towards engineering degrees. In her free time, Jane likes to paint and keep her yard looking top notch.



Nikki graduated from Century College in 2007. She worked in general dentistry and orthodontics before joining Forest Lake Orthodontics in 2010. While she enjoys our patients of all ages, Nikki especially likes working with kids to create beautiful smiles. She’s been a great addition in our team’s mission to create a happy and fun atmosphere.

Nikki is married and has an adorable baby girl at home. She owns a hobby farm with horses, chickens, tortoises, two cats, and a dog. In her spare time, Nikki rides horses, participates in cowboy-mounted shooting, and plays volleyball.
