Hi! My name is Efren. I am from California but am living the good life in SLC. I am an ortho assistant. I am pleasantly surprised to have been able to form some new friendships with my patients. Having the time to get to know people is a great part of the job.
I am obsessed with music. You will likely find me with headphones in. I still find my favorite hobby is playing video games. I come off as shy and reserved, but I’m actually a pretty friendly guy. You’ll find me in room 4. I’m working on getting a tip jar in there, but until then you can just stop by and say “Hi!”
Hi! I'm Gilda. I am the Treatment Coordinator/Manager/Janitor here. I have been here for soooo long, and I don't think I will ever leave. In my opinion, this is the best dental field to work in because most of the patients we see actually want to be here. I feel lucky to work here with an owner who is honest and fair, a doctor who is detailed, direct, and so sweet, and staff that genuinely likes each other. It is a wonderful place to work.
I graduated from the University of Utah with a Health degree, which wasn't very fun for me but I am glad I did it. I live with my cutie boyfriend who is the very best - however if you see him, let him know my ring size on my left hand is a 5 :) I have a side huste in Real Estate which I work with my family on. If I am not working, you will probably find me taking pictures of my two dogs who are probably just sitting there doing nothing. I have crossed the line from love to OBSESSION with those furry creatures. The last few years I have been hiking a ton, mostly for my dog who is crazy about going out. Despite my unstoppable love for treats, I also really like to work out. I love going to the movies, going out to dinner, cooking, books filled with useless information, stand-up comedy, and travel! My family and I are from Guadalajara, Jalisco (In Mexico), but I have lived here most of my life. Well, that's a little about me. I could go on and on, which is another thing - I talk A LOT, but I'll stop here :)
Hello my name is Janette. I have been an orthodontic assistant for the past 10 years. I am from Long Beach, California. I moved to Utah when I was just 15 years young.
I love this place and all the people in it. I really enjoy working with the Dana Staff! They are fun, caring, and create a positive work environment. The best part of working here is the confidence I see in the patients as their treatment progresses.
Hi my name is Lindsey, I am the financial/insurance coordinator. I have been with Dana Orthodontics since 2004. I absolutely love what I do and the people I work with. Dr Northrup is so personable and genuinely cares about each and every one of his patients. The most rewarding part of my job is being able to see the positive impact our work has on patients self-esteem!
I was born and raised in Holladay, Utah and have lived here my entire life. I am married to my favorite human on the planet and have two beautiful girls. I LOVE to cook, spend time with my husband and daughters, do yoga, roller-blade, watch movies, and soak up the sun any chance I get.
Hello my name is Mayra. I have been an orthodontic assistant here at Dana Orthodontics for about 4 years now. My job is to assist Dr. Northrup in providing our patients with quality orthodontic treatment.
I really love Christmas! If you see a Christmas Tree in the office before Thanksgiving, it was probably my doing. My favorite pastimes are shopping and spending time with my daughter.
Hello my name is Selina. I have been an orthodontic assistant here at Dana for about 5 years. I love working here because of our awesome Doctor and incredible staff. I also enjoy seeing our patients get the results they have been waiting for!
I was born in Washington, but was raised here in Salt Lake City. In my free time I love going to the movies - Horror and Comedy are my favorites. On my days off I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 kids. You can find me in Room 6 :)
Hello I am Shawn. I do a lot of different things here at Dana, but as a patient you will likely meet me at the front desk or over the phone. My primary job is to manage our promotions and advertising, so your welcome if you got a great deal on your braces ;) I also repair things around the office, so if you see something that needs fixing please let me know!
In my free time I enjoy watching shows with my wife and 5 cats. Dark comedy and psychological thrillers are my favorites. I also really enjoy playing strategy games, particularly turn-based strategy since my multitasking skills are fading as I get older.
