Lab Technician

Hello! I am Jacquie and I have been Dr. Ron’s lab technician since 1991 and have been in the field of orthodontics since 1987. Working at Ellingsen Smiles is fun and rewarding. When you visit our office, you will find smiles, laughter, and great conversations between Dr. Ron, the team, and our patients. The friendships that we have made here are everlasting and it is an honor to be a part of such a great group! I have a deep respect for Dr. Ron’s ethics and his determination to achieve the best result for the patient. I enjoy the challenge of tailor fitting each appliance to a patient’s specific need.

I am married and I am the mother of twins Kameron and MaKayla. I enjoy scrap booking, stamping, and spending time with my family. One of our families’ favorite activities is camping in the summertime in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I look forward to working with you and getting to know you!
