Meet Our Team
Our team consists of a Board Certified Orthodontist, well trained certified orthodontic assistants, administrative personnel and a lab technician. We regularly attend classes and seminars for continuing education and keep abreast of the latest materials, appliances and techniques.
Helping people feel good about themselves by improving their smiles is very rewarding! We also play a role in establishing good oral hygiene which continues long after braces are removed. We enjoy getting to know our patients and their families and being a part of this community. As a patient of ours, your face becomes quite familiar to us since you usually come to see us regularly for an extended period of time. We appreciate hearing what’s going on in your life; you make our work fun!
Janet – Treatment Coordinator & Practice Manager
Janet joined our practice in 2014 as our amazing Treatment Coordinator & Practice Manager. With experience in a variety of different front office and clinical positions within the dental field we are thrilled to have her on our team! Our patients are impressed with Janet’s ability to communicate the process of starting treatment at our office, and she will also assist with any financial or insurance questions you might have. She and her husband, David, love spending time outdoors in Oregon and Washington with their canine squirrel chasing buddies Ina the Rottweiler and Virgie the Australian Cattle Dog. She has two grown sons and five grandsons and travels back to Bend to visit often. Janet appreciates working at Raleigh Hills Orthodontics because of how our team is committed to making orthodontics fun for everyone.
Vanessa – Office Administrator
Vanessa is our Office Administrator and has been here ever since the beginning, mostly because she is married to Dr. Delplanche! These days, Vanessa works behind the scenes, helping with everyday office maintenance, doing payroll, managing the website, and community involvement. Vanessa enjoys being a part of making people smile and seeing all the children grow and change over the years. Vanessa and her husband have two young children and they are what keep them busy these days! In any spare time, Vanessa enjoys searching Pinterest for fun craft ideas, party planning, photography, and visiting the Oregon coast. Fun facts about Vanessa are that she had braces when she was a child and Invisalign as an adult, loves the ballet and wanted to become a ballerina when she was a young teenager.
