Colorado Orthodontics

Meet the Thornton Team

KJ – Manager and Patient Coordinator

After graduating from Fort Lewis College in Durango in 2004, I joined Colorado Orthodontics. I assist with our new patients during their initial consultations and also act as our practice manager. I absolutely love my job! I feel Dr. Jim makes a difference in his patients’ lives. We are lucky enough to have a job where we help build self-esteem and improve confidence in people. We are mainly a non-extraction practice, so we create Big Smiles with a Big Life.

When I am not at work, I love spending time with my little girl, Madison. She is my pride and joy, and I can relate on wanting to change your child’s life to make it the best you can. I highly enjoy the outdoors, from hiking, skiing, and running to the indoors of hot yoga and boot camps. I feel very fortunate to be a part of Colorado Orthodontics and I can’t wait to greet you when you come to our office.


Jenn – Manager and P.R.C.

I have been part of the Colorado Orthodontic Family since 2011 and absolutely love it! I am the office manager of the Thornton and Arvada locations and perform daily duties to keep the office fun and efficient. I am also the P.R.C. (Professional Relations Coordinator), so I greet and meet with many of our local dentists to ensure our treatment and their treatment for our patients runs smoothly. I will also see patients on an as-needed basis in the office on non-clinical days.

Every morning, I look forward to coming to the office to see our patients and talk about what is going on in their lives. I love working in the orthodontic field, but more importantly, I love to see the gorgeous smiles our patients see at the end of treatment! I am originally from Boston. I moved to Colorado in 2002 and fell in love with it! My husband and I have two fantastic boys and a playful Husky who keep us busy. When I am out of the office, you can find me at sporting events, school functions, and traveling!


Alyssa – Aurora Office Manager (Bilingual)

I joined the Colorado Orthodontics team in 2007, I have been working in the medical field since 2001. I was born and raised in New York and spent three years with my family in Ecuador doing missionary work where I became fluent in Spanish. In 2005, I moved to Colorado with my family where I met my wonderful husband that I married in 2006. We are the proud parents of our 2 beautiful children Liam and Josalyn. We love going hiking as a family and we love cruises!


Shelby – Certified Orthodontic Technician (bilingual)

I am one of our certified orthodontic technicians here at Dr Jim’s office and have been in the orthodontic field for about five years. I love taking continuing education classes and I am always eager to try new techniques. You and your family can always be confident that you are in good hands. When I am not in the office, I am spending time with my husband and three kids and all of the activities that they are involved in. I also enjoy reading and traveling.


Kayla

I am originally from Wyoming where I started as an Orthodontic Assistant in 2014. After moving to Colorado in 2015 I began to work with Colorado Orthodontics. My favorite part about working with Colorado Orthodontics is getting a chance to help people improve their smiles and helping them change their lives. On my spare time I enjoy running, visiting my family back in Wyoming, and traveling.


Maria

I joined the Colorado Orthodontics team in 2015 and absolutely love what I do! I was born in California but raised here in sunny Colorado. My goal is to make you feel confident and have a beautiful smile. When I'm not in the office I am spending time with my twins Adallyn and Azel. As you can imagine they keep me busy. We enjoy doing activities together and being outdoors.
