Meet the Staff



My name is Debbie Rowell. I have had the pleasure of working in the front office since 2001. Whether I am scheduling appointments, answering the phone or working up contracts, I am blessed to have a job I love. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my 6 grandchildren, gardening and working in my flower beds. 



My name is Lisa Lynch. I have been an orthodontic chairside assistant for 19 years and in 1999 I received my expanded function certificate. When I'm not working, I enjoy watching sports, camping, canoeing, and spending time with my family and friends. I truly love my job and am excited to be at work each day. I can't wait to meet you!



My name is Lora Swan and I bring more than 20 years of dental experience to our orthodontic office. I have a very easy going and friendly personality. I grew up on my family's farm in Mercer County, Missouri and graduated from Princeton High School in 1982. I have been married to my husband, John, for 21+ years and together we have one daughter, Desirae. When I'm not working helping create beautiful smiles, I enjoy spending time with my daughter and trying new recipes I find on various food websites. When you see me at your appointments, ask me what new recipes I've tried.



My name is Maggie Winder. I was born and raised in Atchison, Kansas. I met my husband, Chad, my first year in college and we got married in 1996. We have three beautiful children. I started working as an orthodontic chairside assistant in 1994 and received my expanded function certificate in 2001. In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family and watching my children play sports. I couldn't be more blessed doing what I love every day.


My name Madison Curran. I was born and raised in Saint Joseph, Missouri. I have the great pleasure to work as an orthodontic assistant here at Choice Orthodontics. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family and friends, as well as boating in the summer. I am very excited to meet all of you!



My name is Laura George and I have the pleasure of working at the front desk. You will see me scheduling appointments, answering phones and interacting with all the patients and parents as they come in. I am married and have 2 sons, along with a fur-baby I like to call Gucci. In my spare time, I love to volunteer at my local church and my children’s school, Saint Joseph Christian.
