Brekka is Back!

Brekka has been an Orthodontic Assistant here at Warford Orthodontics since she graduated from college in 2009. Last week she returned from her maternity leave after giving birth to her second child. Brekka, her husband Garrett and their daughter Adley welcomed another little GIRL in February! Little Mayzee Grace was born with a bilateral cleft lip, cleft palate and some heart complications. She has already had one surgery at the Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis and more will be needed along the way. Mayzee is doing great! She is such a happy baby and has already proven how strong and brave she is! Brekka is all about education and awareness, so as we welcome her back, congratulate her on the new bundle of joy and feel free to ask how Mayzee is doing. We’re glad you are back Brekka!

Dr. John here. It’s not often I can say that I’ve known someone my whole life, and Nancy and my Dad are the only Warford Orthodontics Team Members about whom I can. Nancy started working at Warford Orthodontics when I was 7 months old and this month will pass the 40 year mark with our practice. When someone dedicates their life to a vocation like both Nancy and Dr. Warford (he’s 2 years ahead of her, starting in 1973) I think it’s something worth honoring. I asked she and Dad to give me some recollections to share with all the friends of WO. Click here for Nancy's story: ... See MoreSee Less

Carolyn Okland FrieszThis caught my eye and I had to read it. I remember Nancy very well, can't believe it's been that many years; she hasn't changed a bit! I have no idea how many years it's been, we've been in Idaho for 25 years and it had been quite a few before that. Congratulations to you! Oh, I have to say, Dr. Watford hasn't changed much either!2 weeks ago   ·  1

Say hello to Beth! Daily Job Activities: Strive to create a positive experience for all patients while making financial arrangements. How about life outside of work?: I have 3 awesome kids Sydney 18, Luke 15 and Max 8 and a 9 year old 80lb German short hair named Ike who thinks he is a 10lb lap dog and follows me EVERYWHERE I go. I love being outside enjoying time in my yard or on the river with family and friends. I’ve been on a kickball team for the last 5 years (it is so much fun!). I absolutely love going to concerts (especially country)! My family and my friends mean the world to me!! What is your favorite part of working at Warford Orthodontics?: Our team is absolutely amazing! Each one of us wants our patients to have the best experience possible while in our office. I love being a part of the process of transforming someone’s life. Meeting the patients and watching the transformation not only with their teeth but also with their confidence and self-esteem is priceless. Any funny or heart-warming stories to share?: Only being here a few months I have already seen some amazing transformations. Whether it’s a child or an adult, seeing their excitement to get started with treatment is so heartwarming. It is so rewarding seeing a patient on removal day. Their beautiful smiles and new found confidence light up the whole office! What makes Warford Orthodontics different?: We have a very warm, welcoming, laid back atmosphere at Warford Orthodontics. As a former patient myself and the parent of a patient I know first-hand how amazing this team is. Each time my son and I came in for his appointments we were greeted with a heartfelt smile and felt like the most important people in the world that day. Dr. John always made us laugh and we left feeling better than we did before we got here. Now, I get to be a part of that process and it is AWESOME! ... See MoreSee Less
