Welcome to Klein and Walker Orthodontics
Get to know our talented team:
 

Tristin

Orthodontic Assistant

It means the world to me to change an individual’s life through assisting in the transformation of their smile. I love meeting new families and making people smile! I also love watching the progress of treatment, and as an orthodontic assistant, I get to do that on a daily basis! I also enjoy hearing about exciting things going on in our patients’ lives and hearing their excitement about how their smiles are changing.

I  am happily married to my husband, Michael, and we have two children, Tucker and Sydney. In my free time, I love being crafty and doing home projects.

Patricia

Orthodontic Assistant/Inventory Coordinator

Feel free to call me “PJ.” Before I began working here, I was a patient. I love working with kids, especially seeing shy kids turn into confident young people because of a beautiful smile. I also work to see that Klein Walker Orthodontics does lots of fun events outside of the office with patients and the dental community. I have been happily married for 20 years. We have three kids and two dogs. I enjoy cooking and organizing things.

Kim

Orthodontic Assistant

I love assisting Dr. Klein with various treatments, and watching each patient grow and change over the course of his or her time with us. I really value customer relations, and will work hard to see that our patients are comfortable and happy here. I am happily married with three children. I enjoy doing outdoor activities, scrap-booking, and watching the Nebraska Huskers.

Gayle

Scheduling Coordinator

I have had the privilege of working for Klein and Walker Orthodontics for over 17 years. I feel the whole purpose of what we do as a team is to make people feel good about themselves. From the first time I greet someone on the phone wanting to set up that initial consultation, to all the visits during treatment, I strive to make every patient feel they are getting the best possible appointment time to fit their busy schedule. I always find it so rewarding to see someone walk through our door for the first time with a somewhat apprehensive look on their face, and leave with a smile knowing they have found the perfect place for their orthodontic care. It is also fun to get to know the patients and their families during the months and years they come in for their appointments. They start out as strangers, and leave as friends!

I have been happily married to my husband, Denny, for over six years. Together we have five grown children, two wonderful grandchildren and another one on the way! Going to the Lake of the Ozarks, gardening, photography, and watching KU basketball are some of my favorite pastimes.

Connie

Office Manager

Over the 29 years I have worked at Klein Walker Orthodontics, I have watched many of my coworkers and our patients mature into strong individuals. I love to see so many who start with us at a young age grow into adults with jobs, homes, and children of their own. This is why I value my job of helping each person make the financial and insurance decisions he or she needs for his or her individual situations. I want each of our patients to get the treatment they need and deserve without losing any sleep over the cost.

I have been happily married for 40 years. We have three grown children who are all married and have given us  six incredible grandchildren! We also have a giant black lab named Steel. I love traveling, cooking, and planning activities for my family.

Tiffany

Orthodontic Assistant

Whenever I help Dr. Klein with procedures, my goal is to help patients feel better about themselves and to create a fun atmosphere. It is incredible to see patients grow and change throughout our treatments, and I feel honored to be part of that process.

I am happily married and have a young son and daughter. I enjoy shopping, scrap-booking, taking pictures, and making my kids laugh.

Michelle

Marketing/Treatment Coordinator

More information about Michelle coming soon!

Amy

Scheduling Coordinator

I enjoy being a part of the team at Klein and Walker orthodontics and seeing our hard work come through by creating beautiful smiles. The best part of my job is getting to know each family that comes to our office and seeing the end result. I schedule appointments and help with technology around the office.

I am happily married to my husband, Dustin. We have twin daughters Mary and Monica. We also have a cat named Lena. When away from the office I enjoy spending time with our twins along with our family and friends. I grew up on a dairy farm. We love to go back and visit the farm when we can to get away from the city.

Alexandria

Orthodontic Assistant

As an orthodontic assistant, I have the unique opportunity to help people and change their lives with a smile. Meeting new people and getting to know them over the course of their treatment is great! I always try to get patients to talk and be open, and I really enjoy getting to know them on a personal basis. No two people are ever the same! My coworkers are all such great assets to our team. We work together with a positive attitude and true concern for our patients.

I have eight siblings, two nieces, two nephews, a cat, and a bunny, all of who keeps me busy and on the go! I enjoy hunting, fishing, and being outdoors in my free time.

Yeny

Orthodontic Assistant

I love making a difference in people’s lives. As a past orthodontic patient myself I understand the difference it can make to have a beautiful smile and feel confident about yourself. This makes my current role as an orthodontic assistant that much easier. I can totally relate to what each patient is going through! I enjoy the fun atmosphere in the office and contests that we always have going on involving our patients. We like to make it fun here for everyone!

I was raised in Arkansas but marriage brought me to Overland Park in 2010. It has been exciting creating a new life beside my wonderful husband and our dogs Lena and Lexi. I love nature, learning about different cultures and their food, and spending my free time with family.
