Office Manager: TiffanyTiffany
Welcome to Peak Orthodontics, where smiles are contagious! As office manager, I have the satisfaction of seeing people’s lives change one smile at a time. I have had braces myself and HEAD GEAR! (It’s not that bad.) I’ve been in the orthodontic field since 1996 and look forward to many more years. I am a very social person and I am lucky that my job has allowed me the opportunity to meet some amazing new people. I am a Disneyland fanatic, so if you need someone to go with, then please take me!I love cuddling with my three daughters and my sweet husband while watching movies. On the weekends, I enjoy hanging out with friends and playing board games or hauling our camper to the mountains for a relaxing break away from technology. A fun fact about me is that I have lived in Spanish Fork my entire life.

From the red rocks of St. George to the snowy peaks of the Uintas.
