We Love
Our Community

Living in a small town is awesome. I love this community! It means the world to me to work here and to raise my children here. One thing that’s always been important to me is encouraging my kids to be actively involved in this community. Something really special happens when you put down roots somewhere and invest your time in efforts in building up the people around you. And I want my children to see that! It’s the reason why Waterloo and Columbia truly feel like home.

Making a Difference Matters

But this extends beyond me and my family. Giving back to the community is a top priority for all of us at Hentscher-Johnson Orthodontics. We want to be intentional in the way we invest our time. And honestly, it’s exciting to be able to give back! From supporting local women’s leadership groups to schools and sports to parades — we get a huge rush knowing that we’re able to make a difference.  

Giving Back

We also love to be out in the community! We participate in a lot of things, so you’ll see us at parades and pretty much anything else going on around town. I personally light up when I see any of my patients around town, showing off their smile. One of the most rewarding parts of our work is seeing a patient who first came to our office, introverted and shy, now out in the world, showing off their smile. Seeing that confidence as they show off their prom or graduation pictures — it just absolutely warms my heart!
