Mary

Clinical Coordinator

Since 1994, I have been coordinating the doctor and patients in the clinical area, as well as assisting with patient care as a technician. I love interacting with our amazing patients! There is nothing more satisfying than seeing their beautiful smile the day the braces come off! Dr. Lemery is an expert in the field of orthodontics and always achieves excellent results.

My husband and I love spending time with our kids and grandkids. We especially enjoy horseback riding, cooking, walking our puppy dog, and traveling the world.


Deb

Orthodontic Assistant

As an orthodontic assistant, I find it amazing to watch each patient's smile and confidence change at every appointment! I enjoy building relationships with our patients. It's wonderful seeing them on a regular basis and learning more about them and their family. Dr. Lemery has a great ability to make everyone comfortable around him. He discusses orthodontic treatment in an easy to understand way and with a touch of humor.

My husband and I have two boys, and one is currently in treatment with Dr. Lemery. We also have golden doodle named Kramer due to his crazy hair. I spend most of my free time watching my boys play basketball and football. I also coach the Maple Valley Bears Cheer Squad. Go Bears!


Tami

Orthodontic Assistant

I have more than 30 years of experience working in the orthodontic field, and have happily spent the past 20 of them right here! My favorite part of my job is working with our patients and seeing the awesome results we are able to achieve. It’s also great to catch up with them when they come back for retainer checks, or just to visit! We have such a great team, all working together to help our patients leave smiling. I can honestly say I look forward to coming to work every day.

I am married to my wonderful husband, Kerry, and have two daughters, Brittney and Crystal. In my spare time, I love to garden, be with my family, and go boating, especially on Lake Chelan. I also enjoy volunteering at Camp Korey, a camp for children with various medical challenges and illnesses.


Rhonda

Financial and Treatment Coordinator

I work with Dr. Lemery to help new patients get acquainted with the office. During the initial orthodontic evaluation, we provide detailed treatment recommendations and advise orthodontic appliance options. My many years of experience in all aspects of orthodontic practice allow me to focus my skills on new patient coordination, customer service, account management, and orthodontic insurance matters. I enjoy working with patients to coordinate the start of their orthodontic treatment. It is a joy to see their confidence increase as their smiles improve throughout the orthodontic treatment process. 

I live on Mercer Island with my teenage daughter Ashley, our dog Barkley, and our cat Hazel. In my spare time, I participate in fitness classes and enjoy shopping and hanging out with friends. When weather permits, I love to paddle board.


Aunie

Scheduling Coordinator

While I started my career in fashion design and merchandising, I’ve found my second home here at Overlake Orthodontics! From our front desk, I greet and schedule patients, making sure to help each person feel comfortable and welcomed. Dr. Lemery and our team are wonderful people, all working together to help our patients achieve amazing smiles. I’m so proud to be a part of this family!

While I have lived in a few states, I am a proud Pacific Northwest native. I've been married to the love of my life for 27 years. We have been blessed with two wonderful children and a sweet little Yorkie who is five years old. My interests are interior design, fashion, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.


Bethany

Orthodontic Assistant

I completed my dental assisting training at Renton technical college, earning my AA and certification in dental assisting. I worked in both orthodontic and endodontic offices before joining the team at Overlake Orthodontics in 2016. During our patients’ treatment, I see patients for regular adjustment appointments, put braces on, take braces off, and make lower bonded retainers. I really appreciate Dr. Lemery’s passion for people; not only does he strive to make each smile perfect, but he genuinely cares about each and every patient.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our puppy Snickers! We love being involved in our church and spending quality time with our family and friends. You can often find me shopping, trying new Pinterest recipes, or starting a new Netflix series.
