As our lead clinic assistant, the amazing Melissa is something of a smile stylist (smile-ist?). It’s her job to help Dr. Crowe do hers. 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.



Jacquelyn is our, well, Jacquelyn-of-all-trades. She’s a dental assistant, she’s a lab technician, she’s one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. For 24 years, she’s been doing what she does and she just keeps getting better. Just another reason to love the environment here.




Ryanna is not only a fantastic dental assistant, she is also the urban farmer of North Portland Orthodontics. 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.




Stephane has been assisting for Dr. Crowe off and on since she was in assisting school – more than six 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.



Angela’s can-do attitude, thorough work ethic, and sunny disposition make her the exceptional office manager of North Portland Orthodontics. A person might find that managing a busy, growing orthodontic practice is quite an undertaking, but Angela takes it all in stride. With experience in both the front office and clinic, she is the go-to gal for all patient inquiries and makes every area of our office run smoothly.



We challenge you to find anyone who loves their job more than Shannon. She’s like the human version of one of those organizer notebooks. As Scheduling Coordinator, she keeps everything (and everyone) in line and extraordinarily happy.



Meet Jill. She’s our treatment coordinator and she likes to think of herself as the hostess with the mostest. Once you meet and get to know her, we definitely think you’ll agree. Her friendly face is one of the first you’ll see in our office, and as you’ll discover, she’s all smiles.
