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!

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.

Hello! Let me introduce myself, I’m Jenee. I was born and raised in California on the Central Coast. My sister and I moved to Illinois in 2008. For over 11 years, I’ve been working in the orthodontic field and have loved every minute of it. When I’m not working, I enjoy playing games and sports with friends, reading or watching movies, and most importantly, volunteering my time in a Christian Ministry. Hope to meet you in person soon at Olson Orthodontics!

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.

Lisa Cummings

I grew up in Panama, the Canal Zone. I lived on a Army base. Since I’m an Army brat I really enjoy seeing and talking with all of our Military families. I’ve been in the dental field over 37 years, 16 years in orthodontics (my favorite). I am a COA (certified orthodontic assistant) also expanded function. This means I have taken a lot of extra classes to help improve my orthodontic skills. On my days off my husband and I can be found camping, fishing, riding our motorcycle or just hanging out with our 6 grandsons.

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.

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!

Leah Whittington

Hi! I’m Leah. I was born in Oklahoma but raised in O’Fallon. My experience in the field of dentistry has been one of a kind. To see some come in being nervous and not smiling or happy to be there, really boost me up to a challenge to make sure they feel comfortable and leave with a smile. To see the progress of their transformation of a new smile is so rewarding and seeing the final results and their happiness is what makes me love what I do! I love being able to help give people the boost of confidence among themselves. I’m a mother of 3 beautiful children. We love to go on long walks. Especially to the park or swimming. We love to go camping and fishing as a family. We are very outdoorsy :). I love doing crafts and designs for all occasions.

I will be a married woman come October 2018 to my soulmate of 6 years, Cory. I have a 7 year old stepson named Hunter. Both of these boys are the light of my world, and I take great pride in them. I am a huge animal lover, and together, we have 3 dogs. In my free time, I spend it with family, and friends, preferably outdoors if the weather is right. I love going to church on Sundays and having a day of rest. Hobbies that I enjoy, include an adult volleyball league, running and working out, and my two direct sales businesses.
