Wendy grew up in Simi Valley, Ca. She recently moved with her husband to beautiful Ventura, Ca. She has worked as a Registered Dental Assistant for the past 25+ years. What she likes most about working in the orthodontic field is seeing the transformation of the patient's smile at the end of their treatment, with the added confidence that goes along with it. Another rewarding aspect of working in orthodontics is being able to work closely with our patients to create a trustworthy and safe environment. Her goal is for each individual to feel like they are a part of our team, working together to achieve the same goal, “a beautiful and healthy smile”. When Wendy is not working, she enjoys hanging out with her husband, children, dogs and the rest of her crazy family and friends. She loves the outdoors, traveling and meeting dew people.

When she's not working, Lori enjoys spending time with her Husband, Children and her 4 beautiful grandchildren. She also loves laughing and usually will find the humor in most circumstances. She enjoys nature and anything to do with beach life.


I was born in Ventura and have lived here my whole life. I graduated from El Camino High School. Currently, I attend VC and am majoring in Biology. My goal is to transfer to a four-year university and after that attend dental school. I also plan to specialize in orthodontics. I became interested in ortho after I was one of Dr. Haar's patients. Seeing my results and how much more confident I felt inspired me to want to help others also become more confident with their smile.

Post covid she transitioned into our orthodontic office where she multi-tasks the phones, appointments, billing and spending countless hours dealing with insurance companies.
