Linda – FAADOM, Practice Administrator
Thanks for visiting Igel Orthodontics website! My name is Linda, and I oversee the general operations of the Igel Orthodontics practice.
I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Igel since 1997. I am originally from Minnesota, but I have called Omaha home since 1985. My husband, Rick, and I have two grown children. I am a member and fellow of the American Association of Dental Office Managers (AADOM), a member of Metro Omaha Dental Office Leaders (MODOL), and the National Association of Professional Women (NAPW).
I am pleased to be part of such a progressive office that offers such a high standard of care to both patients and parents. The emphasis placed on ensuring that every patient has a great experience at our office is amazing to see displayed by the entire Igel team!
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 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 number one 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!
Tom – Financial Coordinator
Hi, I’m Tom. I have been with Igel Orthodontics since March of 2011. It is my job to present the finances associated with our patients’ orthodontic treatment and discuss payment options that best fit their financial needs. Working in the orthodontic field gives me the satisfaction of helping our patients feel more confident.
Outside of work, I am busy attending sporting events with friends and family. I am a loyal season ticket holder of both the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Kansas City Chiefs as well as an avid fan of the Atlanta Braves. When I am not at a game, I’m usually working out, playing softball or golfing.
Lewanna – Lead Front Office Coordinator
Hello, I’m Lewanna. I joined the Igel Orthodontics Team in 2014 and have loved every day since! Everyone in the office is friendly and welcoming. I am excited to witness such amazing changes in a person’s smile … and their life.
I am originally from Wyoming, but I now call Omaha my home. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends.
Angie – Front Office Coordinator
Hi, my name is Angie. I started working at Dr. Igel’s office in 2017. 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. I keep busy with helping out at my daughters’ dance studio. I love doing interior decorating, and I also enjoy crafts.
