Meet the Team

The Haeger Orthodontics team takes great pride in their work. The majority of our team members have been working with Dr. Haeger for more than ten years, and have treated patients’ siblings, parents and friends in the community. We truly enjoy being a part of the transformation in our patients’ smiles.

She’s one of the first people you meet at the office and frequently answers your calls. She enjoys meeting new patients and seeing happy smiles as the braces come off. Marla is married with two children and enjoys spending time outdoors with her family.

J.J. is a Treatment Coordinator at Haeger Orthodontics. She has been in the orthodontic field since 1992 and joined the team in 2006.
