Our Staff

Kilene – Treatment/Financial Coordinator

kilene_121614.jpgThrough effective communication and understanding of patients’ needs, I strive to give each Etling patient the individually tailored orthodontic experience they deserve. We believe that by keeping our patients and their families informed of what is occurring during their orthodontics, we can work together in creating the ideal treatment environment. My position grants me the ability to do what I love: help people and give lifelong confidence with healthy, beautiful smiles.

As a Martin County native, I have had the pleasure of growing up in this area and take pride in being part of what makes it exceptional. I started as part of Dr. Elting's team in 2007 and quickly gained respect for the professional, friendly manner in which business was conducted. Being a Christian-based office, I knew this was the place for me.

Pennie – Clinical Coordinator/Orthodontic Assistant

pennie_121614.jpgI have been assisting in the dental field since 1992, covering the fields of periodontics, endodontics, and oral surgery. My current certifications include orthodontics as well as radiology, expanded functions, crown and bridge work, and CPR. As you can see, I enjoy all the dental fields.

April 2004 is when Dr. Etling welcomed me onto his team, and I have enjoyed assisting him create beautiful smiles since. My job is to prepare patients to have braces placed and removed, assist the doctor in both procedures, routine adjustments, oral hygiene instruction, and patient/parent education. I love to watch the transformation of smiles! One of my favorite parts of my job is showing our patients and their families how much we care about them. It is my pleasure to help everyone treated in this office feel happy and confident.

My husband and I fell in love in the 10th grade; that love grew into our marriage in March 1997. We were blessed with two, athletic, outgoing boys. When not seeing patients in the office, I can be found spending time enjoying the outdoors with family and friends. Some of our favorite pastimes are going to the beach, water sports, camping, and going to concerts.
