Being part of patient transformations, watching confidence soar and getting to know patients on a personal level are just a few reasons I love orthodontics.

I have been in the dental field for over 20 years. I have 2 grown children and a precious little granddaughter. My dog Athena keeps me on my toes and gives me lots of love!

I am impressed daily by the enthusiasm and commitment Dr. Buchanan has for her patients and staff. I am very blessed to call this my home away from home!

I love seeing patient’s level of confidence grow throughout treatment. Seeing their smile when they get their braces off is what makes me love my job.

I am a happy, bubbly person. I love to find the positive in all situations. I am currently in school to obtain my degree in early childhood education to become a kindergarten teacher. In my spare time, I love play with my Corgi and hang out with my boyfriend of 10 years.

Dr. Buchanan’s energy and passion for what she does flows throughout her team. She makes coming to work fun and enjoyable every day.
