Karin – Orthodontic Assistant

Hi! My name is Karin Ormachea. I am originally from Peru and I have been an orthodontic assistant for 11 years. I have lived in New Jersey, Miami and moved to Portland in 2006. It was truly my destiny to work at Justus Orthodontics. Dr. Justus had been invited to give a lecture in Peru at an orthodontic conference. She met my previous employer, a renowned orthodontist in Peru. It so happened, that Dr. Justus was in the process of opening her new practice and my previous boss told her about me! So the world is very small after all!

Working at Justus Orthodontics is fun and it is a great environment to work in. We have a number of bilingual patients with whom I get to speak my native tongue which is Spanish. My co-workers, who are also my friends, make going to work every day very enjoyable. I am married and have 2 little toddlers. I love spending time with my family and friends, and also enjoy cooking and dancing

Patty – Office Manager/Treatment Coordinator

I have been in the Orthodontic world for many years. I love watching the wonderful unveiling of a new smile. I enjoy being able to make the Orthodontic experience as seamless as possible. My mantra is: I strive to give the same enthusiasm and excitement to every patient whether they are the first or the last patient of the day I love the beautiful Oregon seasons. I am a mother of 3 wonderful adult children. I spend my free time hiking, gardening, decorating, and volunteering in various organizations.
