Lisa – Practice Administrator
Hello! My name is Lisa, and my role at the office is that of practice administrator.
I have had the pleasure of assisting in all areas of the office from patient care to operations. I have worked in orthodontics since 2010 and simply love the atmosphere. I am a member of the American Association of Dental Office Managers (AADOM) and a member of Metro Omaha Dental Office Leaders (MODOL).
I am originally from LaVista, Nebraska, and have lived in the Omaha area my entire life. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, playing volleyball, and cycling.
Jennifer – Treatment Coordinator
Welcome! I’m Jennifer. I began my career with Igel Orthodontics in 1998. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing a patient’s self-esteem grow as they continue through their orthodontic journey. One thing I love about my job is the relationships I have built with our patients and their families. I am truly honored to be a member of the Igel team!
I am a native of Madison, South Dakota. I attended the University of Nebraska Omaha and am currently a member of the American Association of Dental Office Managers.
Aside from work, my family is my true passion. I love watching my children’s sporting events and vegging out at home with a movie. When I am not rushing here and there with kids, I also enjoy running and cheering on the Huskers!
Helen – Insurance Coordinator
I am the insurance coordinator and administrative assistant at Igel Orthodontics! I have been a part of Dr. Igel’s wonderful team since 1999. I spend a good portion of my time filing insurance, following up on insurance claims and checking insurance benefits for our patients. My No. 1 goal is to acquire the most accurate information I can for our patients when it comes to their orthodontic insurance benefits. A patient’s positive experience along their orthodontic journey is very important to us all. This is possible through the insight and training that Dr. Igel has shared with each of us.
When not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two amazing daughters and four wonderful grandchildren. Cooking is a huge passion of mine. If there’s a recipe, you can bet I will find a way to change it up and make it my own. Also, give me a fire pit in the backyard, friends and family, and I am in heaven!
Angie – Front Office Coordinator
Hi, my name is Angie. I started working at Dr. Igel‘s office in 2017. Working at Igel Orthodontics has been great. I love coming to work every day because everyone here works together as a team and we have fun at the same time. Dr. Igel is a wonderful boss to work for and makes work enjoyable. It is amazing to watch him care for his patients and transform their smiles.
I am married with 2 children — both of whom are currently attending college at University of Nebraska Omaha. I also have a very small Yorkie named Ginger. When not at work, I keep busy with helping out at my daughters’ dance studio. I also love doing interior decorating, spending time with my family and anything crafty.
Katherine (Kat) – Front Office Coordinator
Hello, I’m Kat! Originally from Indiana, Omaha is now our home. My husband (Ryan) and I moved here in 2021 along with our dog Tuxedo. We love to travel, explore the food scene in Omaha and play tennis.
I am so grateful to be a part of Dr. Igel’s incredible team! Making someone smile every day is so rewarding & impactful. Just a simple smile can make someone’s day.
I look forward to meeting you and your smile at your visit!

Jamie – Specialized Orthodontic Assistant, Records Assistant
I have been an orthodontic assistant with Igel Orthodontics since 2001. Dr. Igel is an amazing orthodontist, and he makes work fun. I love watching the smiles transform on all of our patients as they come in at each appointment. I love knowing that we are creating beautiful smiles for people that will last forever.
I am married with one stepson, and we have two dogs, Max and Mario. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending my time with family and friends, working out and going to the lake.
Ashley – Specialized Orthodontic Assistant
Hello! My name is Ashley. I have been working for Igel Orthodontics since May 2013. I absolutely love talking with our patients and building relationships with them. Orthodontics is very rewarding; I get to watch smiles transform right before my eyes! Dr. Igel is the most caring and coolest person to work for. He cracks lots of jokes and builds very personal relationships with all the kids, which as a parent, I personally value greatly.
I have an amazing daughter, Lilyana, who many people call my mini clone. Our favorite thing to do is hang out at the pool and soak up the sun. We always enjoy shopping and hanging out with friends and family, or you might find us playing or watching movies.
Darice – Orthodontic Assistant
Hi, my name is Darice. I have been an orthodontic assistant for 17 years. I enjoy working with our patients and seeing the smiles on their faces after they are finished with treatment. I love being part of this amazing team!
When I’m not working, I like running, reading, being in the sun, and spending time with family and our pets.
Yeni – Orthodontic Assistant
Hello, my name is Yenises. My friends call me “Yeni.” I have been an orthodontic assistant since 2016. I love being part of this awesome team and working with Dr. Igel. Everyone here is a joy to learn from. The atmosphere here is energetic and encouraging — which really motivates me and my personal growth.
My favorite part of my job is watching the progression of a patient who was initially shy because of the appearance of their teeth. When their treatment is complete, they become a completely different person with a confident smile. One of the most rewarding parts of being an orthodontic assistant is seeing the patients who want to be here and seeing how happy they become.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending my time with my family and our dogs, Lulu and Toby.
Hailey – Orthodontic Assistant
Hi, I’m Hailey! I started my orthodontic career in 2020 after I graduated from the Iowa Western dental program.
I interned at Dr. Igel’s office, and at the end of my internship, Dr. Igel hired me! I am so lucky to be a part of the Igel team! I have been interested in orthodontics ever since I had my braces when I was younger. I enjoy seeing the patients’ new smiles and their confidence grow after getting their braces off, as I did with my own.
Outside of the office, you can find me hanging out with friends and family. I also enjoy traveling, listening to music, going to concerts, and spending time with my fur nephew, Rodgers!
Kalya – Orthodontic Assistant
Hello, I am Kalya! I joined Igel Orthodontics as an orthodontic assistant in June of 2022. I enjoy developing relationships with patients and watching their confidence grow with their new smiles. Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my two children and family. I enjoy shopping, swimming and taking walks with my kids.
Leslie – Orthodontic Assistant
Hi, my name is Leslie! I started shadowing with Igel Orthodontics as part of my dental program through Dental Assistant Education Center. I finished school and was hired as an orthodontic assistant in October of 2022. I am so thankful to be part of this amazing team! Everyone is so kind, and I love how we encourage each other to be a better team.
I had braces when I was younger and loved my journey because straightened teeth made me feel super confident. Having that experience with braces made me want to be a part of the orthodontic field. Out of the office, you can find me at the gym, reading a book or at home with my Chihuahua (Roxie) watching movies. I also enjoy spending time with friends and family as well.
