Your Family’s Hometown Orthodontist

A smile is part of who a person is, Dr. John says. “And as an orthodontist, I have the opportunity to help children and adults feel great expressing themselves through their smiles.



I began working with Dr. McDonald in 1998. My own daughters were in treatment here and after having such a wonderful experience I knew I wanted to be involved with this great group of people to help change lives by giving people a smile to be proud of.

It’s a big step to come to the orthodontist for the first time. I like helping put people at ease with treatment and payment options so that they can get the care they are looking for.

I was born and raised in Salem and in my free time I enjoy exploring the outdoors with my husband Tim.



I work with a fabulous team, we are like family! I also love the ongoing patient relationships we make every day and have generations of families that continue to come here.

I was treated as a child by Dr. Terry and both my kids were treated by Dr. Terry and Dr. John. My favorite part is when the kids come in at age 5-7. They grow up and literally transform before our eyes by the time they get their braces off in middle school or high school. I love to see that beautiful smile Dr. John created. It is priceless!!! To me, I have the best job!!!



I graduated from the dental assisting program at Chemeketa Community College and have been dental assisting now for almost ten years!

I love building relationships with our amazing patients and their families and enjoy working with such an amazing team helping to create confident smiles every day!

My husband and I have 2 daughters, Emma and Isabelle, two silver labs, Stella and Goose, and our Highland Cow, Hennessey. In our spare time we love to spend time at our farm and travel.



I graduated from the Chemeketa Community College Dental Assisting Program. Going to the orthodontist was one of my favorite things to do when I was younger, and now I have the chance to bring those same experiences to our patients today.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. All of my nieces and nephews keep me busy with their activities. During the summer you will most likely catch me at Foster Lake or the beach. I also love hiking,exploring Oregon, and traveling out of the state.



I started working in Orthodontics in 2010, and ever since then, I have never looked back! It’s exciting to be a part of such an amazing team that also shares my passion for creating beautiful smiles.

I am married and have one son, Aiden. And two fur babies, Oliver and Tazzy. Outside of work and Family, fitness is my passion.



Working at McDonald Orthodontics is fantastic, I couldn’t ask for more. It is amazing to work with such a great group of people, each one of us truly cares about our patients and one another.

I am married to my best friend Joseph, and we currently reside in Salem, OR. We love spending time with our family and friends, traveling, and DIY projects. We have two kitty cats, and have a great passion for animals.
