Our team offers expertise, professionalism, and dedication. We are close-knit, united in our desire to ensure every patient has a comfortable orthodontic experience and finishes with the amazingly beautiful smile they deserve!
We thrive on the relationships we build with each patient and their family, sharing stories and laughter during the treatment journey. We are excited you’re thinking about changing your smile and can’t wait to welcome you to the Beglin Orthodontics family!
Our Dental Assistants
Each of our dental assistants is highly-trained, responsive, and attentive. They keep our clinic stocked and organized, sterilize tools and equipment, maintain the highest levels of infection control, and set up the treatment areas for each patient’s procedure. They also take diagnostic records and images, provide chairside assistance to Dr. Beglin as he treats patients, and teach patients about oral health and dental hygiene.
Our assistants are always happy to respond to a patient or parent’s questions, glad to provide progress updates, and may assist with scheduling appointments. They are our patients’ cheerleaders, offering support and encouragement as the patients achieve their best smiles!
Katie, Dental Assistant
I love witnessing each patient’s transformation from feeling self-conscious about their teeth to loving their smile! I have been part of Beglin Orthodontics since 2013. I have a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene, six years of experience as a Registered Dental Hygienist, and seven years (and counting!) of experience as a dental assistant in orthodontics. Dr. Beglin and my coworkers are the best people: we care about each other and we care about our patients!
I was born and raised in Bishop and love living in this area. If I’m not in the office, I make the most of our outdoor opportunities: hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, and kayaking!
Maria, Dental Assistant
I like meeting new people and working with patients of all ages. It’s rewarding to be part of a patient’s journey to a more beautiful smile! I started in the field in 1986, attended National Education Center (formerly Bryman) in San Jose, CA, for dental assisting, and joined Beglin Orthodontics in 2005. In addition to assisting, I also order supplies, stock the operatory, and translate for our Spanish-speaking patients. Dr. Beglin has integrity, treating each patient with their best interest at heart, and that dedication is shared by our staff!
I enjoy spending my free time with my grandchildren and love attending and supporting their many sport-related activities.
Mary, Dental Assistant
I enjoy working with our patients and seeing their smiles – and personalities – transform from start to finish! I graduated from the Dental Assistant Program at Truckee Meadows Community College in 2010 and joined Beglin Orthodontics that same year. I love working with a friendly and dedicated team that provides quality care to the wonderful people of our community!
I grew up in Carson City and am so happy to live in such a wonderful community. I live with my husband and our four dogs. We are lucky to foster dogs and find homes for them through a local rescue group. My hobbies include anything to do with the pups, from attending dog rescue events to hiking with our pooches.
Melina, Dental Assistant
I love our patients, especially the kids! My favorite part of orthodontics is seeing patients come in with discomfort or insecurities about their teeth and watch them gain self-confidence during treatment. Their beautiful results can be life-changing: I love watching this process and being part of making it happen! I attended the Everest College Dental Assistant Program and joined Beglin Orthodontics in 2013. Dr. Beglin offers quality care and exceeds patients’ expectations; he and my coworkers are awesome professionals!
I am a Mammoth local and have two kids. My son Isaac attends Mammoth Elementary School and daughter Angelina goes to daycare. I love living in the Eastern Sierras. My favorite place in the summer is June Lake, in the fall I love Bishop for the beautiful colors and perfect weather, and during the winter I’m content in Mammoth Lakes enjoying sledding, skiing, and ice skating. The only other place I’d like to be is the happiest place on earth: Disney!
Noel, Registered Dental Assistant
I love watching patient transformations, as they gain self-esteem and confidence during treatment. They finish feeling great about themselves and their beautiful smile! I have worked in the dental field since 2004 and was welcomed to Beglin Orthodontics in 2018. Dr. Beglin is an amazing orthodontist. He is kind and patient, loves teaching, and cares about each patient. My teammates are just as caring and skilled: everyone here wants only the best for our patients and their smiles!
Our Front Office
Our front office staff is talented, experienced, resourceful, and accommodating. They are here to help with scheduling appointments, coordinating treatment, and financial matters, including customized payment options and insurance verification, submission, and follow-up.
Along with Dr. Beglin and our clinical team, our front office team wants each person to feel welcome, informed, and supported throughout their orthodontic treatment. They are always available to answer questions, address concerns, and share a smile or five!
Christine, Office Manager
I appreciate being part of a caring, professional practice that puts our patients at the forefront of all we do. I started working in the oral healthcare field in 1989 and joined Beglin Orthodontics as the Office Manager in 2017. One of the most rewarding aspects of this position is knowing our patients are never disappointed when treatment is complete: at every visit we see their smiles become bigger and brighter!
Besides Dr. Beglin being an excellent orthodontist, he is up-to-date on technology and always attending classes and meetings to continue to provide the best care for his patients. He enjoys sharing this knowledge with his staff, so they are equipped to deliver the best treatment and orthodontic experience.
I was born and raised in the Bishop area. My husband retired from the school system after 36 years and is now the chef of our household; he also spoils our Maltese, Bob! I have a daughter who is married and living in Sparks with her two daughters. I love spending my free time outdoors: walking, hiking, biking, camping, kayaking, gardening, and enjoying the beauty that surrounds Bishop. I also love to travel and attend concerts.
Paula, Treatment Coordinator
I enjoy meeting people and helping each achieve their goal of a beautiful smile! I have been in the field since 2000, starting as an orthodontic assistant. Over the years I have learned various positions in the office and became the Beglin Orthodontic Treatment Coordinator in 2005. I oversee new patient consultations, walking patients and parents through the initial process, reviewing treatment, and getting them started on the journey to a new smile!
Dr. Beglin and our team enjoy what we do and that makes coming to work a fun experience. We share a lot of laughs during the day, talking and joking with our patients, their families, and one another.
Beyond my work life, I am Mother to two grown children and Grammy to three adorable grandchildren. I’m very family-oriented and love spending time with my parents, kids, and grandkids. I also love animals and have four cats and three granddoggies. I like to read, listen to country music, and watch movies in my spare time.
