Dr. Amanda Shaffner-Vanderstelt


As an orthodontic specialist, Dr. Shaffner-Vanderstelt considers herself an architect of smiles. Positioning each tooth in harmony to stand the test of a lifetime while maintaining their appearance is her passion. At Willow Creek Orthodontics, comfort and experience is paramount. Dr. Shaffner-Vanderstelt believes quality orthodontic care should be accessible and manageable for every individual young or old no matter how minor or how complex their bite problems may be. Investing in the latest in technology, the best in materials and extensive continued education is her commitment to excellence and to her patients who deserve the best.


Orthodontic Assistant

A Colorado native, Kaylee is loved by every single patient that comes into contact with her. She seems quiet at first, but don’t let that fool you. She has some of the most unique funny faces years in the making. She has developed quite the passion for orthodontics mostly because of how much she gets to be a part of the life-changing impact it has on her patient’s confidence. Careful what you tell her though, she has a mind like a steel trap.


Practice Manager/Treatment Coordinator

From Florida, this energetic, fun-loving, huge-smiling team member of ours is still adapting to Denver’s cold weather. She chooses to work in orthodontics because she loves educating patients about perfecting their smiles for their lifetime. She describes herself as enthusiastic, ambitious, and compassionate. If you see her in public and are not sure if it’s her, she is easily identifiable at any time because she is either holding a Monster drink or eating Italian meatballs with a huge smile on her face.


Treatment Coordinator

Joining us from the sunny state of California, Nancy has a bazillion years of orthodontic experience. If you stand within 10 feet of her you will instantly feel at ease with her cool and calm demeanor. She clearly loves orthodontics and will tell you it’s so gratifying to be a part of changing people’s lives through their smiles. She may seem like a perfectly proper lady on first meeting but she can shred some mountains on a mountain bike.
