The exceptional team at Bandeen Orthodontics of Battle Creek

At Bandeen Orthodontics of Battle Creek, we are proud to say that we have the best group of people to provide you and/or your children with braces and other orthodontic care. We take pride in having a caring, intelligent, and compassionate team that is eager to advance and try new methods, procedures, and technology. Orthodontics is growing and changing every day, so it’s important to have a team ready to embrace those changes in order to provide you with the best orthodontic care possible. Our team at Bandeen Orthodontics of Battle Creek serves all of Southwest Michigan and should be your choice for orthodontic treatment.

Amanda brings with her years of Dental Assisting experience and a bright and cheerful attitude. Amanda spends most of her time here as a clinical orthodontic assistant, although she is also our point person for clinical supplies. Management of supplies is no small task in a busy orthodontic practice. She has been with us since early 2011. Outside the office, she enjoys spending time with her husband and young daughter. If there is a rock concert in the area, she will be there…although she has been caught singing the words to some country music in our office too!

Karla has been with our office since January of 2013. She had many years of experience in orthodontics before joining our team. She is one of the smiling people you will see first, when you come to our office. She is our “treatment coordinator” which means that she will help you understand your orthodontic treatment options and will help you move forward with the process. Karla is also our connection to our local restaurant scene – she and her husband know the food business. They are typically the ones who cater for our in-office educational events that we have hosted for our dental colleagues, and they always receive rave reviews. Karla has two kids and lives with her husband in Marshall, Michigan.

Cindy lives with her husband and kids in Marshall. She has been with us since the summer of 2014. In addition to being a one of our Scheduling and Financial Coordinators, Cindy is also our Insignia Coordinator “go to” person. As the Insignia Coordinator she will help you oversee your custom-treatment process so that the doctors can establish your treatment plans with the aid of three dimensional computer modeling.  She has a LOT of previous orthodontic experience, and also has an extremely positive, go-to-it attitude. She can sing Journey’s entire Greatest Hits album from memory (and makes up the dance moves as she goes along). She is a huge University of Michigan fan and can talk sports better than anyone else in the office. She is an important member of our reception team, and she is currently lobbying for installation of a basketball hoop in our parking lot.
