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

Hi! I’m Angie and I handle our marketing, deliveries, event planning, and take care of the team. I love helping to bring ideas to life and surprising people with great experiences! I know you’re going to enjoy your orthodontic experience – and you’re going to love your beautiful new smile, too!

When I’m not at the office, I’m usually with my spouse, two kids, and our family cat and dog. We all love sports and spend a lot of time watching and cheering as the kids play.


Orthodontic Assistant

Welcome to Chvatal Orthodontics! I’m Karly and I’ll be part of transforming your smile! I handle some light lab duties and sterilization, as well as provide chairside assistance during patient visits. I enjoy getting to know our patients, personally, and find it satisfying to play a role in transforming a person’s self-confidence by way of their smile! I’m here to help and always glad to answer your questions!

My husband, two children, and I relocated to Cottage Grove from California several years ago. We enjoy the outdoors and like to explore the local parks and trails with our two rescue pups, Lucy and Willow.


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!


Scheduling Coordinator

Hi, I'm Kaziah. There are so many things that make me smile here at work, such as my snack drawer. All kidding aside, I love my wonderful coworkers who always have jokes, encouraging words and a helping hand. Our amazing leadership team, whose kindness and selflessness always goes above and beyond. I also love how Dr. C is always investing in our growth not just within the field but as good humans. I am beyond thankful to be able to experience the culture that has been cultivated here.

Outside of work I love being outdoors. You will catch me riding my motorcycle down back roads, going out on my SUP with my Fur child Luna and camping/exploring in the wonderful forests we are so lucky to have around us.



Hi and welcome! I’m Kelly and I’m really looking forward to meeting you! As an assistant, the best part of my job is getting to check in with my patients every 6-8 weeks. I always want to hear the latest news: did your team win the big game? How did that science test go? Did you have the best time at Disney? 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!


Office Manager

Hello and welcome! I’m Itzy and I handle a lot of the administrative side of Chvatal Orthodontics. I’m our Financial Coordinator, back-up Treatment Coordinator, take care of insurance billing, and all office management. Y Hablo español! I love the relationships I get to create with our patients, their families, and my coworkers, and absolutely love watching people’s confidence grow while their smile changes! I’m excited to meet and get to know you during treatment and to see your beautiful finished smile!

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!


Lab Technician

My name is Bridget, you'll find me managing the lab and creating our beautiful, custom, in-house aligners. I'm new to the dental field, but I already love the team here at Chvatal Orthodontics! Every member is kind and helpful to one another and the friendly atmosphere puts our patients at ease. 

I am newly married to my husband Levi, and we have an amazing daughter Ryleigh, and our cat Josie! We love to hang out at home and go camping.


Records Technician

Hi, my name is Alondra and if you need records taken or help in sterile, I’m your girl! I’ll be at your new patient exam and take your records so Dr. Chvatal can see what kind of treatment you’ll be needing. You will also see me helping out the assistants by cleaning the chairs and getting them ready for their next patient.

What makes me smile at home is spending time with my family, and my husband. I’m a big shopper as well and love to take photos of anything and anyone but nothing beats coming home and being able to cuddle up on the couch and watch a good video on YouTube.

Hi, I’m DelJean and I enjoy working alongside a great team of people to help make your orthodontic experience a great one! I’m always happy to help solve any of your financial and insurance questions and I try to make the financial part of your treatment as pleasant as possible.

When I’m not at the office, you will most likely find me in the garden or making beautiful flower arrangements for weddings, events or just because. I love having fresh flowers on my table and I love bringing joy to people with flowers! I have an amazing husband who can literally do anything, and two grown up kids whom I’m immensely proud of. I love it when we can all be together.


Treatment Coordinator

Hello! I’m Sam. I’ve worked in the dental field for more than 10 years. I have experience in both general dentistry and orthodontics, but orthodontics is where my heart is. Meeting new people in our community every day and working alongside some of the most wonderful people in the business, I count myself truly lucky that this is how I get to spend my week! Teeth are fascinating and, as Treatment Coordinator, I love getting to share my excitement with our patients.

When I’m not at the office, you can find me riding my bike, baking something delicious with one of my best friends Percy (my KitchenAid mixer), playing nerdy board games, hiking to waterfalls, or on some other adventure in our beautiful state. My husband Nathan and I have two young daughters, Jo and Wynnie, and a flock of chickens that all have silly names. I'll talk about my little family all day if you let me, they are my favorite people in the world!


Scheduling Coordinator

My name is Mekayla and I’ll be one of the first people you meet at our office. I help with scheduling appointments, answering phones and making you feel welcome at the office. Meeting new people and brightening their day makes me happy! I look forward to getting to know you!

I was born and raised in the Eugene/Springfield area. I enjoy being outside, working out, reading, and learning. Traveling is one of my favorite hobbies and I would love to travel all over the world.


Orthodontic Assistant

Hi, I’m Viviana! You will see my face among the rest of the amazing team to guide you to your picture-perfect smile. You will most likely see me chair side. I’m excited to meet everyone and to hear your stories. The things that make me smile at work are watching the process of the patients’ teeth move after their first visit and seeing how confident they’re becoming and of course fluffy Rey as well.

Things that make me smile at home are being greeted by my dogs and enjoying the beautiful hiking trails that Eugene offers.
