Dr. Yaillen and his staff are dedicated to giving their patients the best orthodontic care available! Our clinical staff members are Oregon Certified Orthodontic Assistants. To keep up with the latest advancements in orthodontics, we regularly attend the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists and the Oregon State Society of Orthodontists annual sessions. Each Spring, we have a staff retreat to build our knowledge of orthodontics, as well as our team building skills. With our combined experience in orthodontics, we have the skills and commitment necessary to give our patients superior treatment.
Meet Heather. She is hard-working, kind and just overall wonderful. She is our patient advocate, insurance fighter, scheduler and overall office manager. Somehow she finds the time to make it all happen at Yaillen Orthodontic Group. She is usually the first and last face you see when you walk into and out of our office. We appreciate everything she does for us and we know you will enjoy working with her as much as we do.
Rainey is the sunniest person you will ever meet. She has been working in the field of orthodontics for 20+ years. She knows everyone and it’s her goal to make sure we are the best part of your day every time you visit. She is family.
Dre’s upbeat attitude will make you smile each time you see her. She runs our clinic and keeps us all on our toes. You never know when she is going to come to the office dressed in theme. We appreciate the fun she brings to YOG every day!
Meet Kendra. She is the newest addition to our team. She is a fast learner and she impresses us every day. Keep up the good work, Kendra!
The man behind the scenes. Brendan may be quiet, but he is a ninja at heart. He is the one making all of your retainers and ensuring the office is functioning at it’s best at all times. He is learning new skills every day.
As our new patient coordinator, the amazing Melissa is something of a smile stylist (smile-ist?). It’s her job to provide our new patients with the best experience possible. She will work with Drs. Yaillen and Crowe to walk you through the whole process of redesigning your smile. Not only does she love seeing the before and after difference in our patients, but she also gets to help create that difference first hand.
Ryanna is not only a fantastic dental assistant, she is also the urban farmer of the office. She is often bringing in fresh produce from her organic home garden. Knowing the important role a healthy diet has in creating beautiful smiles has made Ry an invaluable member of our team (along with many other attributes).
Stephane has been assisting for Dr. Crowe off and on since she was in assisting school – more than eight years ago! When she is not brightening our patients’ days, Stephane can be found traveling to just about anywhere on the globe. We are very lucky to have this bubbly, sweet, and adventurous woman as a full-time member of our clinic staff at Yaillen Orthodontic Group and North Portland Orthodontics (our sister office in Nopo).
