Karen

Hello and welcome! My name is Karen, and I have been a part of the team here at Clayton Valley Orthodontics since November of 2006. I have the fabulous job of making sure we not only create fabulous smiles, but that our children and adult patients are happy, the parents enjoy their time here, and that we all have fun in the process! It is very rewarding to watch our patients transition into knockout, fabulous smiles!

Jill

Hello, my name is Jill. I have been a part of the Clayton Valley Orthodontics family since 1980. I am primarily the bookkeeper and financial coordinator, though I have worn many hats throughout the years. I enjoy watching the patients grow and feeling like we are making a difference in their lives. The smiles when our patients complete their treatment are priceless.

Sharron

Hi there. My name is Sharron. I am a registered dental assistant and Dr. Ludwig's treatment coordinator. I have been very happily working at Clayton Valley Orthodontics since 1992. Our office is a very fun office to work in! I truly love working with our patients, enhancing their smiles, and helping to correct their dental/orthodontic issues. A side benefit is that our team gets to meet and know some really great people over the years: our fantastic patients!

Hi, my name is Bernadette. I have been working at Clayton Valley Orthodontics since 2007. I am a registered dental assistant. I also work in the lab, where I make a lot of the appliances used in the office. I love my work here. I especially love seeing all of our patients. It is an honor to serve our patients knowing that at the end of their treatment they will have a beautiful smile; one that I helped to make. I love to make our patients smile.

Rachel

Hello my name is Rachel. I have been working at Clayton Valley Orthodontics since 2010 and love what I do. I was drawn to the specialty of orthodontics while I was in school to become a registered dental assistant. I enjoy the fact that we get to build a relationship with our patients because we have the privilege of seeing them regularly. I love watching our patients transform and become more confident with their appearance. It is a rewarding feeling to know that I help take part in this and I am a firm believer that a smile is the most important accessory a person can wear.
