Krista Lam

I grew up in Alton, IL but I have lived in the O’Fallon area since 1998. I’ve been working in the orthodontic field since 2003 and have been with Dr. Olson since 2008. I am truly blessed to work for such a compassionate, caring doctor. I love my career and the ability to build lasting relationships with patients and their families. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, family, and friends. I have a son who was born in June 2015 and he is the joy of my life! I like to run, read, travel, and love going to concerts!

I started in Orthodontics with Dr. Satrom in 2000. My position at Olson Orthodontics is Treatment Coordinator and this allows me to get to know all of our new patients and families. I enjoy being able to watch our patients grow and enjoy their great smiles. In my spare time I enjoy crafts and reading. My husband and I have 2 children and 2 dogs and a cat.

Renee Brown

Hi. I am from Montana, and we are a military family. We moved to Illinois 7 years ago, and enjoy all it has to offer. I am married to my wonderful husband Jeshua of 18 years, we have two awesome kids, Miracle and Keegan. I was a stay at home mom, decorating cakes until 2015 when I decided to try my hand at Dental Assisting school… I loved it. So here I am enjoying what I have learned in general dentistry and orthodontics. When I am not busy learning about teeth I spend my time decorating cakes, girl scouts, and boy scouts. I am grateful to be a part of the Olson team and look forward to growing with them.

I’m originally from Granite City, but moved to the O’Fallon area five years ago. I worked previously as an apprentice jeweler and now I’m very excited to learn everything I can about orthodontics so that I can be an awesome Orthodontic Assistant! When I’m not working, I enjoy bible studies, being outdoors, spending time with good friends, watching baseball and going to Cubs games at Wrigley Field. I look forward to meeting and getting to know everyone.

Bethany Kanoy

Hello! I’m Bethany and I just started working at Olson Orthodontics this past November. My primary jobs here are sterilization and other random jobs that need to be completed! I love the inviting environment, and the people I work with are amazing! When I am not working, then I’m doing school, hanging out with friends, playing my guitar, singing, or at my youth group. I have one year left in high school and then I hope to continue my education in the dental field. Hope to see you at the office sometime!

My name is Sarah. I have been in the dental field since October 2014. I married the love of my life, Cory Walsh in 2018 and am the proud mother of two amazing boys, my stepson Hunter, and Colt, who was born in June of 2019. We have three dogs, a great dane, weimaraner, and german shorthaired pointer… and a lionhead rabbit!! I enjoy spending time with family and friends and going to church and relaxing on Sundays. I love being able to watch the changes that are made to a person’s smile from beginning to end with orthodontics! I look forward to meeting all of you.

Arney Brown

I am the laboratory technician here at Olson Orthodontics. I am responsible for the fabrication of all the orthodontic appliances. I received my laboratory training and all advanced training while in the Air Force. I started working here in April of 2002 after retiring from the Air Force, upon 26 years of service, with a cumulative of 36 years of experience in the Dental Laboratory career field. I enjoy working at Olson Orthodontics because I have the opportunity to work one on one with the doctors and the patients. Should a question or concern over an appliance arise, I can speak to the dentist directly. This also allows appliances to be created much faster and delivered to the patients quicker.

I am originally from Shiloh, but now reside in Maryville with my husband and three children. I am beginning my journey in orthodontics and am so excited to learn everything about it! Dr Lauren and our team are very passionate about what they do, so I am extremely blessed to be a part of this staff. When I am not working you can find me at games and competitions for my kids, or family time including cuddling with my fur babies. I look forward to getting to know all our patients.
