A team approach
Our team is dedicated, knowledgeable, friendly, and we love to watch your smile develop! Working together to guide you to a healthy and beautiful smile is our passion.
Born and raised in Alaska, Amanda has developed an affinity for the outdoors, with camping, hiking, kayaking and exploring at the top of her to-do list. Watching the sun go down in the summer while the skies never get dark is an amazing part about living in Alaska that she appreciates. On the job with DuClos Orthodontics since 2009, Amanda loves “helping kids on their braces journey.”
A self-described, “people-person,” Cyndi’s favorite part of the job is working with patients and their families. She’s been on the DuClos team for more than ten years. On the home-front, this Palmer wife and mother promotes strong family ties, and connections with friends and community. For several years she volunteered at Butte Elementary and Palmer High School, where she ran football concessions and was a cheer mom. She and her husband of 28 years, Bob, enjoy fishing, camping, traveling and time with their two grown children, Chris and Sami-Jo and their spouses.
Emily enjoys helping patients build confidence, which is an important outcome of creating a beautiful smile. She earned her Associates of Applied Science (AAS) in dental assisting from the University of Anchorage, and has four years experience as a dental assistant and one year as treatment coordinator. Born and raised in the Mat-Su Valley, Emily loves the mountains and seclusion of living in Alaska, as well as hiking in the outdoors. Other favorite activities include watching movies, home/gardening shows, and exploring Pinterest. Spending time with family is also important (including her twin sister), husband of 17 years, Jason, and sons Kobe and Connor.
For Sonya, building relationships with patients as they go through the treatment process is a highlight of being a 19-year veteran with the DuClos team. After 34 total years in the field, she doesn’t tire of seeing patients and their winning smiles. Outside the office, she enjoys gardening, bike riding, traveling, shopping, cooking and spending time volunteering for school functions. A resident of Alaska since age 12, Sonya loves the scenery and the laidback lifestyle. She has a son, a daughter, two grandchildren, and Sam and Sassy, her dog and cat.
One of the best parts of working on the DuClos team? Getting to share the big day when braces are taken off! Tonya, who has been working at DuClos Orthodontics since 2012, likes to get patients excited about their straight teeth and beautiful smiles. She loves Alaska for its profusion of summer colors and dramatic winter white. Spending time in the outdoors is her passion, whether it’s gardening (she loves flowers), hiking, or riding a motorcycle or four-wheeler. Tonya is also creative, enjoying arts and crafts and jewelry-making.
