Hi! My name is Linda, and I oversee the general operations of Dr. Igel's practice.
I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Igel since 1997. I am originally from Minnesota, but have called Omaha home since 1985. My husband, Rick, and I have two grown children. I am a member and fellow of the American Association of Dental Office Managers (FAADOM), a member of Metro Omaha Dental Office Leaders (MODOL), and the National Association of Professional Women (NAPW).
I am pleased to be part of such a progressive office who offers such a high standard of care to both patients and parents. The emphasis placed on ensuring that every patient has a great experience at our office is amazing to see as displayed by the entire Igel team!
Hi, I'm Tom. I have been with Igel Orthodontics since March of 2011. It is my job to present the finances associated with our patients' orthodontic treatment and discuss payment options that best fit their financial needs. Working in the orthodontic field gives me the satisfaction of helping our patients feel more confident.
Outside of work, I am busy attending sporting events with friends and family as I am a loyal season ticket holder of both the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Kansas City Chiefs as well as an avid fan of the Atlanta Braves. When I am not at a game, I'm usually working out, playing softball or golfing.
I am the Insurance Coordinator/Administrative Assistant at Igel Orthodontics! I have been a part of Dr. Igel’s wonderful team since 1999. I spend a good portion of my time filing insurance, following up on insurance claims and checking insurance benefits for our patients. My number one goal is to acquire the most accurate information I can for our parents/patients when it comes to their orthodontic insurance benefits. A patient’s positive experience along their orthodontic journey is very important to us all. This is possible through Dr. Igel’s insight and training shared with each of us.
When not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two amazing daughters, and three wonderful grandchildren. Cooking is a huge passion of mine, and if there’s a recipe, you can bet I will find a way to change it up and make it my own. Also, give me a fire pit in the backyard, friends, and family, and I am in heaven!
Welcome! I’m Jennifer, Dr. Igel’s Treatment Coordinator. I began my career with Igel Orthodontics in 1998. As the Treatment Coordinator, my main roles are building relationships and ensuring our patients and their families understand Dr. Igel’s treatment recommendations. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing a patient’s esteem grow as they continue through their orthodontic journey. One thing I love about my job is the relationships I have built with our patients and their families. I am truly honored to be a member of the Igel Team!
I am a native of Madison, South Dakota. I attended the University of Nebraska-Omaha and am currently a member of the American Association of Dental Office Managers. I strive to continue my education on the latest and greatest in the orthodontic world!
Aside from work, my family is my true passion. I love watching my children’s sporting events and veg’ing-out at home with a movie. When I am not rushing here and there with kids, I also enjoy running and cheering on the Huskers!
I have been an orthodontic assistant with Dr. Igel since 2001. Dr. Igel is an amazing orthodontist and he makes work fun. I love watching the smiles transform on all of our patients as they come in at each appointment. I love knowing that we are creating beautiful smiles for people that will last forever.
I am married with one stepson, and we have two dogs, Max and Mario. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending my time with family and friends, working out, and going to the lake
Hello! My name is Ashley. I have been working for Dr. Igel since May 2013. I have been in the dental field for almost four years. I absolutely love talking with our patients and building relationships with them. Orthodontics is very rewarding; I get to watch smiles transform right before my eyes! Dr. Igel is the most caring and coolest person to work for. He cracks lots of jokes and builds very personal relationships with all the kids, which as a parent, I personally value greatly.
I have an amazing daughter, Lilyana, who many people call my mini clone. Our favorite thing to do is hang out at the pool and soak up the sun. We always enjoy shopping and hanging out with friends and family, or you might find us playing or watching movies.

Hi there! I’m Teena.
I started my dental career in 1998 in the USAF. I have a total of 8 years in the Orthodontic field. Doing braces is the most rewarding part of dentistry. Whether I am helping a child or an adult, seeing the transformation from the beginning to the end of treatment is so rewarding. It’s great to see how a beautiful smile can make such a difference in someone’s confidence!
