Our Team

An exceptional smile begins with an exceptional team.

Clinical Team

Erin

Like Dr. Joe, Erin has a family tie to orthodontics.  Her mom has been in the field for many years.  Her positive attitude and upbeat approach are second only to her amazing clinical skills.  While she’s not building smiles with Dr. Joe, she’s likely to be hiking and camping with friends.

Julie

Julie started her orthodontic career with our team while she was finishing her training (and we consider ourselves fortunate that she landed in our practice.)  She brings an amazing mix of personality, fun and skill to the practice.

Kristi

Kristi is a long time Portlander with more than 20 years of orthodontic experience. Because she’s worn every possible hat in an orthodontic office, she knows how to take exceptional care of our patients. Outside of the office Kristi enjoys spending time with her husband of 30 years and her two grown children.

Julie

Julie has been assisting Dr. Rensch for over 35 years.  Her sense of humor and outgoing personality make her a lot of fun to be around. You may see Julie in the neighborhood, she grew up in Northeast Portland and lives three blocks from the office.

Andrea

Andrea is an Oregonian who has lived much of her life here in the Portland metro area.  She has worked with Dr. Rensch for over 5 years now and brings a tremendous amount to the practice.  Her happy outlook and friendly style create a relaxed, comfortable experience for all patients.

Administrative Team

Debbie

Debbie brings a mix of orthodontic experience to our administrative team.  Having spent many years perfecting her clinical skills as an orthodontic assistant, she knows what it means to be a patient.  Deb’s focus is making sure the practice accommodates all the logistical needs, from scheduling to financials.  She’s a true patient advocate whose top goal is a positive patient experience. When Deb’s not in the office, you’ll likely find her outside, enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

Sheri

Sheri has over 14 years of experience in the orthodontic field.  As our treatment coordinator, she guides patients through the orthodontic treatment journey, answering every last question and making sure the experience is smooth from start to finish. When she’s not in the office, she loves spending time outdoors and she has even been known to summit a mountain or two in the area.

Patty

Patty is our new Community Relations Coordinator.   You’ll find her getting involved and participating in all kinds of neighborhood activities.  Patty loves the neighborhood, she’s lived in Northeast Portland for over 25 years.  Expect to laugh and have some fun if Patty’s involved.

Excellent Orthodontics in a Really Fun Place!

"Thanks Dr Joe and crew for taking such amazing care of my three kids over the years! We have had a fantastic experience each and every appointment. Dr. Joe combines his excellent skills with a great team and office experience. He and the team identified each of my kid's different needs and personalities. They then met each one where they were at, worked with them every visit to help them succeed, and they all have fantastic smiles and great memories! Thank you!!"

“How many people can say that going to the orthodontist is fun? I can! You walk in and immediately notice the relaxed, fun, efficient environment where you know Dr. Joe and his fantastic staff will have you in and out before your Mom can even read People magazine!”
