Meet the Team

Cottage Grove & Eugene Team


Orthodontic Assistant

Hi, I’m Jaiden and I look forward to helping as you change your life by changing your smile! I enjoy making people smile and feel more confident throughout their treatment. I encourage great oral hygiene and offer patient care including changing wires and colors, taking X-rays, and Invisalign® checks. It is rewarding to help the community by creating stronger and more confident people with new smiles. Having a great smile really impacts your life and that shows from a person’s first appointment to the last. I love being able to bond with each patient and am looking forward to getting to know you!

My wonderful fiancée Zach and I have two Rottweiler fur babies, Maverick and Marleigh. I love to take the pups for walks and cuddle on the couch with them. My hobbies include sand dollar searching, paddle boarding, and anything that involves family. I love taking photos and love music, too. Some things that make me smile: the color teal, tea, Smartfood popcorn, my Toyota Tacoma, and makeup.


Orthodontic Assistant

Hello and welcome to Chvatal Orthodontics! I’m Marissa and I work in our clinic, where I help our patients during treatment. In addition to providing patient care, I work hard to keep our clinical flow smooth and also handle sterilization duties. I love interacting with patients and their families. We get to see everyone fairly frequently, and that gives us plenty of time to get to know one another. Many times, once a patient has finished treatment, we then get to see and care for their younger siblings, or their mom and dad decide they want to change their smile, too. It’s fun to get to know whole families like this!

I’m a native Oregonian, having grown up in Creswell, just a few miles south of Eugene. I enjoy film, sports, crafting, and my boys: Aaron, my sweet, musically talented, and hilarious boyfriend since 2012 and our Puggle, Nesta! He is my whole heart and has such a wonderful soul!


Orthodontic Assistant

Hi everyone! I have had a passion for dentistry since the 7thgrade, and now I get to live out my dream! I love meeting new people, building relationships with patients, and brightening everyone's day (and smiles!) At Chvatal Orthodontics, I enjoy helping patients achieve their perfect smile, in fact, I'll be one of the first people you will see as I take your photos, x-rays, and a super-cool 3D scan of your teeth to help Dr. C. make the best plan for you.

I love working here and getting the opportunity to be a part of this amazing team. I can't wait to meet you and perfect your beautiful smile!

I was born in Round Rock, TX, but grew up as a true Oregonian down in Medford. After a childhood soccer career that started at the age of five, I was blessed to cap my competitive career hear in Eugene, at Lane! I absolutely love being active, soaking up the sun, shopping, traveling, and trying new things

I'm Shannon and it is my job to make sure patients have a clear understanding of the orthodontic treatment recommended for their individual smile needs. I also help orchestrate the lines of communications between the patient and their general dentist, oral surgeon, and Dr. Chvatal ensuring their treatment experience is professional, comfortable, and fun.

The best part of my job is building personal relationships with my patients and their families. I also have the privilege to be a part of their treatment adventure by watching their smiles and confidence transform. At Chvatal Orthodontics Our team has a genuine spirit of cooperation and concern for each other and for our patients, everyone has a voice and the whole team works together to make office goals happen.

Two things on my bucket list are diving with great white sharks and riding in a hot air balloon at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta!  Let's go!


Scheduling Coordinator

Welcome to Chvatal Orthodontics! I’m Heather and I’ll be one of the first people to greet you when you arrive. I schedule appointments, check into insurance, and go over paperwork. What’s most important, though, is making sure you and your family feel welcome. I love people and love getting to meet and talk with people all day!

I’m a newlywed and there is nothing more that I love than being a wife to my sweet hubs, Joe. I have a very sweet Min Pin name Tobi who I have been blessed to be the mom of for several years now. I love to cook, bake, hike, swim, work out, ride bikes, and go on adventures. As a family, we are always doing something: there’s never a dull moment in our household!

I love being part of Chavatal Orthodontics and building friendships while helping create amazing smiles!

I’m married to my best friend and we have a Chocolate Lab named Maggie Mae, who is the apple of our eyes. In my free time, Mags and I are usually out and about at the river or the parks around town. We also love to go camping! Do you have a favorite camping spot? I would love to hear all about it!

When I’m not in the office I’m usually outdoors, enjoying the fresh air and sunshine! Spencer Butte is my favorite place in town to soak up the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. There’s nothing I love more than hanging out with my family, friends, and my boyfriend Adan and our cat, Batman. Throw in some good food and baseball and I’m in heaven!
