Hi, my name is Mikayla. I am both a Scheduling Coordinator & Orthodontic Assistant. Here at Dr. LeMert’s office, smiles are contagious! It is one of the most rewarding feelings, knowing that I am part of a team that restores confidence in patients daily. When I am not at the office, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family, it is a blessed life.
Hello, my name is Yvette and I have been with LeMert Orthodontics since 2009. As the Connections Coordinator, you may see me at the front desk, or sometimes I may be out of sight, but still involved in this busy practice. One of my favorite things about this position is getting to see our wonderful patients and their evolving beautiful smiles! I am a wife to a very busy husband, Jason and mother to two beautiful daughters. On my days off you just might see me cheering for them at one of their sporting events; and you better believe if I see one of our patients there I will be cheering them on as well!
Hi, my name is Lisa and I was hired in 2015 as a Scheduling Coordinator and now I am the Financial Coordinator. I love being part of Dr. LeMert’s team, as we are dynamic, encouraging, positive folks! Each day I look forward to working with our team and with each and every one of our patients. When I’m not at Dr. LeMert’s office I am singing with the Roseburg Concert Chorale or swimming in the pool at the YMCA. My family is very dear to me. I am wife of Matt, a local bird enthusiast, and mom of 3 amazing children: Katy, Daniel and Stephen.
Hey y'all my name is Kayla and I am the Treatment Coordinator in Roseburg as well as the Social Media Coordinator for this wonderful practice! One of the many reasons I love working for Dr. LeMert is because everyone here feels like family; we take care of and lean on each other. I was born and raised in Riddle, Oregon. My husband Ryan and I also lived in North Carolina and California, where we loved the warm weather and nice beaches but ultimately missed the seasons, the small town feel, and family, which is a priority to us. We have a little girl named Harlow, and two fur babies, Trip and Rosco. We spend most of our time camping, hunting or doing something that involves being outside together.
My name is Tina Spanberger and I have the privilege of working at LeMert Orthodontics in Coos Bay as Treatment Coordinator. This is a very positive and upbeat place to work, and I get to meet our wonderful patients and help them set up a treatment plan for a new, beautiful smile! Outside of work, my husband and I, along with our two amazing boys, run a small animal rescue, play music together and enjoy the outdoors. I have a very full and blessed life, and working at LeMert Orthodontics is a great part of it.
Hi there! I’m Abby, the Clinical Coordinator here at LeMert Orthodontics. You might find me up front scheduling, in the clinic assisting, or taking records! I love all the variety in the office, there is always something to keep busy with! I was born and raised in Coos Bay, spent some time in Portland and Eugene, and now I am experiencing what Roseburg has to offer. On my days off I try and get out of town and explore wherever I can! :)
Hi, my name is Laura. I'm the Assistant you will either hear laughing or getting laughed at! ;) I think it's important to have fun at work, so it's my goal for our patients to have fun too. I am proud to say that I have been working here since 1996 and I LOVE every minute of it! The most rewarding part of my job is watching your smiles transform into something truly amazing. Having been a patient here myself as a teenager, I totally understand what others are going through and I want to make them feel as comfortable as I felt and give them the best possible experience. My husband Tate and I have 2 beautiful kids, Madison and Trevor. My family is the love of my life and when I am not at work, you will most likely see us out in the community either at a sporting or social event.

Hello, I’m Wyatt. I graduated from the Dental Assistant program at South Western Oregon Community College in 2017. Since then, I have been working happily for Dr. LeMert and with the Smile Team! I work at the Coos Bay office as a Lab Technician and Scanner. What I love the most about Orthodontics is seeing the amazing results. Helping people to have a beautiful smile is why I love my job. Outside of work I enjoy activities involving the beach whether it’s fishing, swimming or even walking along the shore.
Hi, my name is Dawn. I began working for Dr. Varner in 1976. I retired from LeMert Orthodontics in 2017, but I still fill in from time to time. The most rewarding part of this job is, without a doubt, the day that the braces finally come off and we reveal that awesome smile that everyone has worked so hard for. Outside the office, my husband Mark and I love spending time with our kids and grandkids. They are the light of our life. I wouldn't be complete without mentioning my love for the Lord. He's the one who's given me all these blessings. My cup overflows!
Hello, my name is Vicki. I began working in the dental field in highschool! After working in this practice with Dr Varner and Dr. LeMert for 30 years I retired in 2016, but am always on stand-by to fill in as needed or to help train new assistants in this FUN and rewarding profession of smiles!
