MaggieMaggie - Office Manager/Financial Coordinator

Hello, my name is Maggie. I have been managing dental teams for 20+ years. I love interacting and getting to know people on a personal level. I joined Justus Orthodontics last year. I love working with Dr. Justus, the Patients, and our wonderful team here. Seeing the transformation of our patient's smile is so amazing. I manage the financial aspect of the office by submitting the dental claims, setting up contracts and payment plans. If you have any questions, I am happy to help. When I'm not working, I like to spend time with my family. I have five grown children and five amazing grandchildren ranging in age from 14 to two. I also love gardening, working out, acrylic painting and hiking in our beautiful state. I'm so happy you are here, please let me know how I can help with your treatment.

KarinKarin - Orthodontic Assistant

Hi! My name is Karin Ormachea. I am originally from Peru and I have been an orthodontic assistant for many 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.

As part of the Justus Orthodontics team, I love making everyone that comes into our office feel welcome! The best part of being one of the treatment coordinators and orthodontic assistants is getting to know the patients and their families. I absolutely LOVE seeing the wonderful transformations of all our patients as they complete their treatment! It's always a pleasure for me to help our patients fully understand the amazing world of orthodontics and make them feel comfortable and well informed!

Hi! My name is Blanca. I was born in Jalisco. I have lived in the U.S. most of my life. I am married and have two beautiful daughters. I really enjoy the beach, nature walks and cooking with my family.  Working at Justus Orthodontics has been an amazing journey for me.  Seeing all of the transformations in our patient's teeth is the absolute favorite part of my job.  Being a Spanish bilingual allows me to speak fluently with our Spanish speaking patients, which I really enjoy. I am looking forward to scheduling your next appointment!
