    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 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 (FAADOM), 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 who 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 as 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 veg’ing-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/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 parents/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 Dr. Igel’s insight and training 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, and 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

    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 as 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.

  • Ashley

    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.

  • 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 a patient come in who is shy because of the way their teeth look and when their treatment is complete, they have become a completely different person with the biggest smile and so much confidence. 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.

My favorite part of this job is seeing the look on patients’ faces the day they get their braces off. It’s such a great feeling knowing that they are happy with the result and I get to be part of it from the beginning. I also love being able to talk with all the patients and build relationships.

    When I am not working, I spend time with my husband Jamie and my two children Madison and Wyatt. We love having movie nights, spending time with friends, and having fire pit night.
