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.
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.
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.
I have had the privilege of working for Klein and Walker Orthodontics for over 19 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 eight years. Together we have five grown children, three 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.
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.
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.

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, four nieces, two nephews, a cat, and two dogs, all of who keeps me busy and on the go!
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.
Social Media/Treatment Coordinator
I love being able to welcome patients for the first time and explain to them how we can make their smile beautiful! It’s so fun to watch the transformation from the beginning of treatment to the end! I enjoy connecting with patients through our social media presence- whether it’s a contest or just fun posts from around the office!
My fiancé, Grant, and I are getting married in January and we are so excited! I’m a proud alumna of Kansas State University where I studied Public Relations. In my free time, I enjoy baking, shopping, event planning and watching endless amounts of House Hunters.
I appreciate the opportunity I have at Klein and Walker Orthodontics to meet wonderful new people (like you!) and get them started on the path to their dream smile. I treasure my smile and love that I get to help you with yours! As a helper by nature, I’m eager to answer your questions and explain the value of your treatment possibilities.
While I treasure my smile, my biggest treasure is my family. I’ve been happily married to my husband, Tyler, for two years and we have a dog that keeps us laughing. When I’m not at work, I enjoy taking care of our home, shopping, outdoor adventuring, and chatting with friends.
