Bedont Staff
At Bedont Orthodontics, we care about making all our patients feel right at home! We put your needs first to achieve efficient and comprehensive treatment. Our world-class staff is highly skilled to ensure results in an energetic and fun-loving atmosphere.  

Each member of our treatment team is an expanded functions orthodontic dental assistant (EFODA) and is certified in radiation health and safety, and our office staff has years of experience in treating patients with the highest level of care and consideration.
Office Manager
The best part of my job is making people smile. When I joined the office in 1997 as a high school senior I only got to see a glimpse of what was so great about what we do. After finishing school I rejoined the team as a clinical assistant in 2002 and have since enjoyed seeing the magic of making smiles every day. I work hard with patients on education, cooperation and good oral hygiene, and help all patients understand the importance of everything we do, every step of the way. It is important to me that my patients love coming to see me. I want to be the best part of their day!

When I am not building lasting friendships with my orthodontic family I love to be at home with my husband and two young children Braedon and BreeAnn. I love piling on the couch to watch movies and eat junk food when I can't play outside, and camping and 4-wheeling when I can.

Treatment Coordinator
I began my career in the orthodontic field in 2000 and after several years of assisting I took some time off when I started my family. In 2014 I went back to work at Bedont Orthodontics as a clinical assistant. I also started treating patients suffering from headaches and migraines as a dentomandibular rehabilitation therapist, in addition to taking care of our orthodontic patients. In 2016 I transitioned to working as the Treatment Coordinator helping patients get started in orthodontic treatment. While I love everything about my job, I have to say that meeting new patients and their families has to be the highlight. It’s so much fun to be part of their orthodontic journey and seeing the transformation in each person’s smile as they move through treatment. Not only do their smiles look better, but they smile more often and with greater confidence.

When I’m away from Bedont Orthodontics I keep very busy helping run our family HVAC company with my husband and playing an active role in our three children's school and extracurricular activities.

Reception & Scheduling
I joined Bedont Orthodontics early 2017 as a scheduling coordinator, and I absolutely love what I do! From answering phones, creating a welcoming reception area, to helping patients get appointments that work best for their schedule, I know that I'm doing everything I can to show our patients that they are more than a set of teeth to us. My favorite part of my job is getting to know our amazing patients and their families. I love seeing the progress our patients make towards achieving their dream smiles and celebrating their results.

I was raised in Newberg, Oregon and moved to Vancouver, Washington with my husband Josh. In my free time I love shopping with my friends, going on spontaneous trips with my husband, and spending time with my family, especially my niece and three nephews! 

Patient Relations
I am an enthusiastic ambassador for Bedont Orthodontics in the communities we serve, and I love creating fun, interactive games and activities for our patients. I have 25 years experience in marketing and public relations and am honored to work with such an ethical and beloved doctor like Dr. Bedont. The team here is amazing and I feel like I'm part of something that is truly changing lives. 
Outside of work I am active in my church and enjoy family time with my husband and daughter finding new adventures that keep us youthful, connected and fun!
Mary Lou
Financial Coordinator
I am a proud team member of Bedont Orthodontics, working here since 2014 as the Financial Coordinator. I love my job and look forward to coming to work every day. Watching each patient grow and become more confident as they see their smile change never grows old. I love being a part of the team that makes that happen. 

When I am not working, I love meditating, hiking, and hanging out with my dog Buffy, The French Bulldog.
Orthodontic Assistant
Right out of high school I got my start in the dental field as a treatment/financial coordinator in a dental office. In less than a year I realized my true desire was actually treating patients in the clinic. I followed that desire and have never looked back. I love my career as an orthodontic assistant! It is very satisfying, even exciting, to be a part of changing one of our patient’s lives by straightening their smile. There’s nothing better than seeing that great big brace-free grin the day the braces come off!

I grew up in Portland and met and married my husband, Mike, in 1990. Mike and I like to spend lots of time with family. We enjoy the outdoors, sports, cooking, taking long drives and serving in our church and community.

Orthodontic Assistant
I joined Bedont Orthodontics in March 2013 and have worked as an orthodontic assistant since 2001. As an assistant, I have had the opportunity to work with children and adults to help improve their smile and confidence. I enjoy being able to build long term relationships with our patients and families over the course of treatment.

When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my daughters, Lindy and Savana. Savana and I like to go snowboarding and skiing at Mt. Hood Meadows, hunting, fishing, riding dirt bikes, and camping.

Orthodontic Assistant
I began my career in the dental field in 2012 and found my passion in orthodontics in 2016. I've found fulfillment in helping change lives for the better and to be a part of the process from beginning to end. I absolutely love the smiles I get when finally taking the braces off and the patient gets to see how all of the work paid off!

When I'm not enjoying my day at work, I'm usually out hiking in the Gorge with my son and husband. I also like to volunteer at our many hiking trails to keep them open to the public.
