Meet the Team
Katelyn is a Colorado native and was raised in Arvada. She began her orthodontic career in 2021 here at Berger Orthodontics. In fact, she’s the “OG” team member. In a relatively short period of time, Katelyn has transitioned into a leadership position on the clinical team. She enjoys connecting with our patients and helping them feel comfortable (especially the kiddos). Outside the office Katelyn loves sketching, drawing, cars and learning Japanese. Katelyn also has a cuddly cat named Tiger.
In 2010 Ashley graduated from Dental Assisting School in Fort Collins. Though she’s lived in several different areas of Denver, the wind blew her right back to her roots in Arvada, Colorado. She spent the first 9 years of her career as an Orthodontic Technician and then became a Treatment Coordinator. Ashley considers herself a “tooth nerd”. She is passionate about orthodontics, so she truly enjoys educating her patients about orthodontics and what to expect during their treatment. Ashley previously coached gymnastics for 15 years. She loves decorating, creating flower arrangements, working out and attending sporting events! Ashley is married and nothing brings them more joy than their daughter, Sage, and pups, Oakley and Telle.
Maria is from Durango, Mexico and grew up in the “windy city”, Chicago. She and her family moved to Colorado in 2016. Maria studied in Mexico where she graduated with an associates degree in Accounting. Prior to becoming a financial coordinator, Maria was a dental assistant and treatment coordinator. Maria enjoys being a part of our amazing team. You can always count on Maria greeting you with a smile! Outside the office, Maria expresses her creativity through macrame, knitting, and crocheting. She even made a little knitted plant named Peter that lives at our office. Maria is happily married with 3 amazing children – Christian, Vivian & Iliana. An ideal day for Maria is when her entire family is together with their lovable goldendoodle, Lola.
Allyson began her dental career in 2010. She started in Endodontics but soon transitioned into Orthodontics. Allyson takes pride in building relationships with our patients and their families. Seeing happy patients with their new smiles is the cherry on top. She is a Colorado native and grew up here in Arvada. Allyson loves seeing many different genres of live music. You can bet she’ll go to concerts rain or shine! She also loves spending time with her family and friends. Her two kids, two cats and dog certainly keep her busy, but they make creating memories that much sweeter.
Amber was born and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida. She’s lived in Georgia and California. So, it’s safe to say that she is simply tolerating Colorado’s chilly weather. Amber has been straightening teeth for 25 years! But braces are not her only passion, she is also a dolphin expert. While living in St. Petersburg, she worked on a dolphin tour boat. She would suspend over 12 hours on the boat sharing her knowledge and love for dolphins. Since moving to Colorado, she enjoys spending time indoors with her three sons in the winter & hiking and swimming with them in the summer!
