Meet the Team

Education is very important at Twaddle Orthodontics. All clinical team members complete certification training in Orthodontics Expanded Functions, and pass the Dental Assisting Basic Skills Mastery Examination. We continue our education by attending AAO conferences and several other advanced training opportunities throughout the year. The entire Twaddle team is dedicated to educating and involving patients and parents throughout treatment, making the entire process a comfortable and satisfying journey.


Meet Nikki
Front Office Coordinator & Director of First Impressions

Nikki is usually the first face you see when walking through the front doors. She is not only scheduling your appointments, but also filing insurance claims and keeping track of your contract. As a bonus, Nikki also makes sure we all have fresh coffee to drink throughout the work day! Nikki keeps the office relaxed with her calm and positive attitude. She wears the coolest earrings. And she competes in roller derby bouts as a member of the CoMO Derby Dames. She is basically a rockstar.


Meet Ryan
Treatment Coordinator

Ryan began at Twaddle Ortho as a clinical assistant, prior to her role as treatment coordinator. She discusses treatment findings and reviews the treatment plan with Dr. Twaddle at your initial consultation. When she is not seeing new patients, she can be found in the clinic, or leading projects for all of our internal and external marketing endeavors. Ryan is a passionate leader in the community as a co-captain for her Relay for Life team. When not at the office, she can be found working at a zipline course outside of Hermann, Missouri, or wandering through the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.


Meet Susie
Lab Technician & Clinical Assistant

Susie can be found in the clinic most of the day. She is recognized most by her sweet and calming voice. Any patient sitting in Susie’s chair is sure to be relaxed and comfortable! With a background working as an assistant in oral surgery, Susie is very technically skilled and attentive to detail, making her an excellent clinical assistant. Susie is also a part of our marketing team, helping to expedite events and parties for our patients. In her spare time, Susie enjoys staying active and spending time with her fiancé and their girls.


Meet Mariah
Clinic & OSHA Coordinator

Mariah can usually be found in the clinic, but you also might catch her running around the office making sure supplies are always stocked, organized, and tidy. She is a key assistant in the clinic, with a passion for working in the dental field. She graduated from the dental assisting program at State Technical College, and first gained experience with an endodontist. Mariah possesses the knowledge and performance of a highly skilled clinical assistant, making her a huge asset to Twaddle Ortho. She is also our office OSHA manager. When she’s not working, Mariah enjoys spending time with family and friends and cooking up new recipes in the kitchen!
