Actual Sayre Orthodontics Patients

Meet the Team


Julie

Office Coordinator

I love being part of a team that changes lives every day, and gives people the confidence and self-esteem to share their smiles with the world! It’s a good feeling to work with a doctor and team who care about our patients on a personal level. I oversee the day-to-day operations of the practice, and provide workflow direction for the entire staff. We all work very hard to make every visit one that has our patients and their families remembering our office!

I moved from Texas to Montana to be close to the mountains, snow, and nature. I love spending time outdoors and have a bucket list goal to hike as many beautiful Montana trails as I can! Giving back to others and the community is important to me, so I try to find activities that combine helping others and enjoying the beauty of Montana.


Carly

Orthodontic Clinical Assistant

I really like getting to know our patients and learning about their interests and hobbies. It’s fun to catch up at their visits and share in their lives as they develop a beautiful new smile! In addition to assisting Dr. Sayre with a variety of different orthodontic procedures, I sterilize tools and equipment. I’m also in charge of patient office interactions.

After playing basketball and graduating from University of Montana, I made the journey over to Bozeman. I enjoy being with my family, we love to venture out under the Big Sky country and spend time outside camping, fishing, and hiking.


Tawnya

Orthodontic Clinical Assistant

As a Clinical Assistant, I enjoy spending time getting to know patients and forming a relationship with them as they come in for their appointments.  I have a Biology degree from MSU and enjoy the technology side of orthodontics and being a part of changing a patient's forever smile!  One of my favorite parts of my job is that our team works so well together it is like spending the day with friends and not like being at work all day.

Being a Montana native has made me an avid outdoorswoman.  I greatly enjoy hunting, fishing, shed hunting and hiking.  I spend a lot of time with my two dogs Mak (a Chiweenie) and Frankie (a Dachshund).  If I am not hitting the mountains with my dogs, I spend a lot of time at my folks ranch just west of Bozeman.  When I am indoors, I enjoy baking, sewing, crafting and tending to my over 50+ houseplants that I have individually named! ;)


Taryn

Appointment Coordinator

As the office Appointment Coordinator and one of the first people you see coming into our office, I really enjoy seeing your smiling faces coming in the front door and getting to greet each and every one of you!  I love being a part of such a great team that really desires to serve our community well!  We all strive to make every patient's visit to the office the best experience it can be.

I grew up in the Bitterroot Valley and after a small adventure for a year in Colorado, I moved to Bozeman and have loved being here!  I started my journey in the dental field and have loved learning and growing in it over the years decided to expand my knowledge into the orthodontic field.  In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, adventuring in the mountains and being involved in the community.


Stephanie

Orthodontic Clinical Assistant

There are many aspects of my job I absolutely love, but far most is the professional and personal relationships formed with each patient and their unique transformation that I get to witness from start to finish in their journey!  Being a part of a team is rewarding in so many ways, and this team is amazing!  We have a very hard working and determined staff that work together to make the office inviting, professional, and caring to our patients, parents and everyone we come in contact with on a daily basis.

My hometown is Laurel, Montana and I moved to Bozeman In 2002 to expand my dental career. I fell in love with Bozeman and its atmosphere the first time I visited, so I decided to make it my home!  A few years after moving here I met my husband, Matt and we now have 3 amazing, beautiful children; Peyton, Taya, and our youngest Daxyn. I’m also a military wife to my wonderful husband who recently retired after serving for 20 years. We love camping, fishing, bonfires, and all outdoor activities as a family!  We have two wonderful pets “Buster Brown” our rambunctious chihuahua and “Mitsy Moo” our loving adorable black and white cat!


Kara

Financial/Insurance Coordinator

I love being a part of Dr. Sayre’s team!  As the Financial Coordinator, I work with patients to explain their insurance benefits and setting up their patient accounts.  I enjoy meeting each family and finding manageable arrangements so that they can have the smile they dream of! 

I was born and raised in Helena, and I came to Bozeman for school, like so many others, I never left.  I enjoy watching movies, playing games, reading books, and making food with my family.  I like to say I am a bad “Bozemanite” because I would rather stay inside and organize my kitchen than go on a hike, but I still appreciate the beauty of our state.  I am so thankful to have found a place to call home, and work with an amazing team to make a difference in our community!


Grace

Orthodontic Clinical Assistant

As a clinical assistant at Sayre Orthodontics, I enjoy being able to give our patients a reason to show off their smiles again and feel comfortable while doing it! I love working in an office that is teamwork oriented while still being able to consistently learn something new and have fun while doing it. It is a pleasure getting to know our patients and form a relationship with every one of them.

I am a Montana Native, through and through. I graduated from MSU with a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science to eventually complete my dream of being a physical therapist. I have worked in a handful of different physical therapy clinics which have given me the knowledge and love for the healthcare field. My passion is working in the medical field, gaining new experiences, but most importantly impacting and improving the lives of the patients I work with. While I’m not at work, I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my husband. Our favorite activities are traveling, hiking, snowboarding, going to the lake, and boating. We especially like to spend our whole day floating the river in our drift boat, fly fishing, and winding down the day sitting next to the campfire cooking up s'mores.


Sam

Orthodontic Clinical Assistant

Working at Sayre Orthodontics has been an amazing experience! Seeing patients really brightens my day. I really enjoy seeing them go through their treatment and watching their smile get bigger and brighter! It is very rewarding knowing that what we do can help someone’s self-confidence and I am grateful to be a part of a team that gets to do that. I also love hearing about their lives and accomplishments , that is one of my favorite parts of my day!

I grew up in Dillon, MT before moving to Bozeman. I grew up hiking, fishing, and always enjoyed spending any time I could outdoors. Today, I enjoy backpacking as much as I can or hiking somewhere with my boyfriend, Chris. Our Corgi, Boone, also tags along on all our adventures! Boone and I enjoy taking mid-morning naps in the hammock after a long trek into the mountains. I am grateful to live where I do and there is no where else I’d rather be!


Celeste

Orthodontic Clinical Assistant

I am an orthodontic clinical assistant at Sayre Orthodontics. I have had the privilege of working with patients in the dental field over the past 10 years. I genuinely enjoy being a part of an industry that brightens peoples smiles!

I am a native Montanan who has lived in the Gallatin Valley since the 90’s. Manhattan has been home to myself, my husband and our three children for over 20 years! I enjoy cooking, gardening, spending time with family and friends recreating outdoors.


Madison

Treatment Coordinator

Treatment Coordinating at Sayre Orthodontics is a fun and rewarding job in so many ways. I appreciate the patient interactions I have on a daily basis and enjoy shifting patients’ perspective on what to expect when they visit our office, orthodontics can be fun too! The passion, experience, and commitment to excellence that Dr. Sayre and our team brings to our community is just a bonus to working at Sayre Orthodontics.

I moved from Oregon to Montana to improve my quality of life and experience the vast beauty that this state has to offer. When I am not busy admiring teeth, you can usually find me somewhere exploring the mountains or by a lake with my black lab, Cash, with a fishing pole in tow. My hobbies include fishing, hiking, camping, waterfowl hunting and horseback riding. If I am stuck indoors I enjoy reading, baking, and snuggling up on the couch watching my favorite documentaries and true crime shows with my dog.
