We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Scheduling Coordinator

Welcome! I am the receptionist at Dr. Keim's orthodontic office. I have worked part-time for Dr. Keim since 1992 and have enjoyed the chance to meet so many wonderful people. Over the years I have had a chance to build lasting relationships with many of our orthodontic families. My children always comment that no matter where we go, there is an orthodontic patient I know and smiles to share. I love the fact that we have patients who now have children old enough to start orthodontics and chose to come back here because their experience was positive years ago.

My husband’s name is Dennis and I have three wonderful children, Nick, Laura, and Charlie. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going boating in the summer with my family, watching movies, and chasing my kids around to their various activities.


Patient Coordinator

I am the patient coordinator for Dr. Keim and have worked for him since 1991. My smiling face is one of the first things patients see. I also help with new patient exams and recalls. One of my favorite things about working here is watching as former patients bring in their own children and seeing the same happy, healthy smiles that we created years ago.

My husband’s name is John and we have three children, Jordan, Jade, and Jarett. In my free time, I enjoy working out, gardening, outdoor and lake activities, and going to hockey games.  Not many people know this about me, but I’ve worked since I was six years old, first sweeping and vacuuming my mom’s grocery/clothing store.


Orthodontic Dental Assistant

Hi! My name is Donette. I have worked for Dr. Keim since 1988. I am a dental assistant and clinical coordinator. In my many years of working here, I’ve loved building lasting relationships with our patients and parents and seeing the beautiful smiles we create in the process. I feel fortunate to work with a wonderful team that believes in having fun at work and providing excellent patient care. I enjoy working with a doctor who believes in doing quality work and whose personality makes it easy to come to work every day.

My husband Keith and I live in West Fargo. We have three daughters, Whitney, Hayley, and Courtney and two dogs, Gracie and Mikko. In my free time I enjoy shopping(TJ Maxx!), decorating, going to hockey games, container gardening, and spending time with family!


Orthodontic Dental Assistant

I have worked for Dr. Keim since 2004 and have been in the dental field since 1998. Before moving back to North Dakota, I worked for an orthodontist in Texas for seven years. Since coming here, I’ve really gotten the chance to talk to our patients and truly get to know them.  It is my goal to make our patients feel at ease during their visits with us.

My husband, Joe, and I have a daughter named Abbey, who has a great smile thanks to Dr. Keim. We have dogs named Sam and Rocky. I love reading, knitting, and shopping. I’m also a TV and movie buff so I love watching reality shows, “Survivor” in particular.


Orthodontic Dental Assistant/ Patient Flow Coordinator

I have worked as a dental assistant since 1991 and for Dr. Keim since 1999.  As someone who had a great experience with my own braces, I want all of our patients to have the same. I try to explain treatments before we do them and focus on my patients’ comfort. Dr. Keim has a very easy-going personality; you can tell he enjoys what he does and is very good at it.

My husband’s name is Brian and we have two daughters, Breanna (Jordan) and Brittany. They both have beautiful smiles thanks to Dr. Keim. Breanna and Jordan have a daughter, Harper. Our youngest daughter, Brittany, works full time while attending college. We have a yellow lab named Miss Brodie. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and I’m a huge NFL and college football fan.


Orthodontic Dental Assistant/ Patient Flow Coordinator

Hello, my name is Tonya. I have worked for Dr. Keim since 1988. Getting to know our patients, making them feel comfortable, and seeing the great smiles we create is very gratifying. Our office is a fun environment and we deliver the highest quality of care. Dr.Keim, my team members and our patients make coming to work enjoyable!

My husband Scott and I have a son, Lane and two daughters, Brooklyn and Hope. Lane and Brooklyn have awesome smiles thanks to Dr. Keim, and Hope is in the process of getting her new smile too! We have a dog named Summit and a cat named Dakota. I love keeping busy with my kids and their activities. In my free time I like scrapbooking, decorating, reading, and spending time boating with my family in the summer.


Lab Coordinator/Orthodontic Dental Assistant

Hello, my name is Laurie. I have been at Dr. Keim’s orthodontic office since 1987 and a dental assistant since 1983. I graduated from North Dakota State College of Science, which seems like ages ago. I am the lab coordinator/orthodontic dental assistant at the office. Using my creative side to fabricate all the appliances and retainers for the office has been my expertise. I love seeing the beautiful results that we all help to create for our patients. Occasionally you will see me helping in the operatory assisting Dr. Keim and our patients. The staff here is so fun to work with, which makes coming to work enjoyable. 

I have two amazing daughters. Jessica (Drew) and Kaley (Matt). My oldest daughter Jessica, Drew, and granddaughter Olivia live in Montana. I don’t get to see them nearly enough so thank goodness for technology! Kaley, Matt and granddog Tilly live in West Fargo and love the lakes! In my free time, I like to do anything outdoors, especially hiking, gardening, visiting the lakes, and bike riding.


Financial/Insurance Coordinator

Hello, my name is Lisa. I joined Dr. Keim’s practice in 2014 and I am the financial and insurance coordinator. After working here in 1999 as an orthodontic dental assistant, I took time off to be a stay-at-home mom and go back to school. Getting a chance to be back with the same girls is a real treat! I file the insurance claims, explain the orthodontic treatment fees, and take care of all accounts receivable, and occasionally may help you schedule your appointments. Getting to know the families and helping them with insurance and payment plans is very rewarding. A good working relationship with Dr. Keim and our staff makes the office a fun place to work.

My children, Ethan, Anna, and Alex, are my best accomplishment by far; they are amazing and I’m lucky to be their mom. They are involved in hockey and that takes most of our free time. I do enjoy knitting and looming if any free time (yeah, right!). We enjoy outdoor activities, travel, and any time spent together.
