Meet the Team

We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Office Manager

I oversee our staff, handling training and scheduling, along with other matters, to support Dr. Butts and the people we serve. Ours is a close-knit, all woman office, and we get along wonderfully. That translates into providing patients and families with exceptional care, so they’re happy with their treatment experience and thrilled with their new smiles!

My husband, Paul, and I have been married nearly 30 years. We have lived in Webster Groves with our 3 grown children, Mimi, Katie, and Bridget for the entire time. Our family loves music, watching movies, and socializing with our friends. Prior to joining Big Bend Orthodontics, I was an elementary school teacher for 20 years. I am pleased to join this wonderful team.


Orthodontic Assistant

I enjoy working closely with Dr. Butts as she creates beautiful smiles. I seat and prepare patients for their visit, then work chairside and assist with different procedures. I also take X-rays and make molds and liner trays. I am happy to work with a friendly and supportive team in a laid-back environment. It’s the perfect atmosphere in which to get to know our patients and see how each person changes as their teeth straighten. Those finished smiles are perfect!

Family keeps me busy outside of work. I’m married and have five kiddos. Our oldest, Noah, is currently being treated by Dr. Butts. Then come Leah and Myah, as well as our two young sons, Lukah and Elijah, who are identical twins. Yes, we’re always on the go!


Lab Tech

I spend much of my day in our on-site lab. It’s rewarding to be part of the process of changing a person’s oral health and their smile, and I really enjoy getting to know our patients and families. Dr. Butts and my coworkers are wonderful women. We have a lot in common and get along well, which creates a positive and supportive environment. This helps our patients feel at ease, as they always know we are here for them!

My husband Doug and I have been married for over 30 years. We have three children, all currently in college: Will, Sam, and Libby. I have many pets, love to spend time outdoors, and treasure time at our lake house with family and friends.
