Meet Our Staff




I have been a receptionist at McGuire Orthodontics since June 1998.  My son and his family live in Florida.  I've been blessed with two grandsons, Tyler and Evan.  I love being a grandmother!  I have an adorable peek-a-poo named Billy.


I started working at McGuire Orthodontics in 1999.  My degree is in Social Work and I am also a Certified Medical Administrative Assistant.  Driving the shuttle and working with insurance are some of my many  duties.  I am still happily married to my high school sweetheart and we have 2 sons.  Jared graduated from Linn State and is a journeyman power lineman for the city of Jackson.  Dylan is a hard working college student graduating from Southeast Missouri State University this year.  My hobbies include boating, tennis, running, watching movies, fishing, decorating,  and watching my boys play sports.  I look forward to serving you with all your insurance needs!

My name is Shannon.  I am a certified orthodontic assistant at McGuire Orthodontics.  I have been employed here since 2006, and when I was 10 I was a patient!  Now that I am all grown up I have a sweet little family of my own.  My husband Robert and I have two children:  a little girl named Presleigh and a little boy named Jack.  You will probably see pictures of them hanging up at my unit at work.  We love being outside whether we are going for walks or sitting in Busch Stadium cheering on our beloved Cardinals!  Our favorite time is whenever we are together!  I hope you enjoy your visits to our office.  We will surprise you with how much fun going to the orthodontist can be!!

My name is Kristi. I started working for McGuire in December 2003. I became a Certified Orthodontic Assistant in December, 2006. You may also see me at the front desk in our Poplar Bluff office. I was a patient of Dr Crowe’s when I was a child. In fact, I was an “early treatment” patient. If you had been around here in those days, I was the little six-year old redhead who made everyone smile! I still do: I enjoy making pretty smiles! I love working in the orthodontic profession! I’m a Scott City native but now live in Cape Girardeau. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and being outdoors. 

My name is Wendy. I’ve been with McGuire Orthodontics for 8 years. Actually, before I was an assistant I was a patient of Dr. Crowe’s! I loved the office so much that I decided to stay as an employee. I became a Certified for Orthodontic Assistant and Expanded Functions Assistant in March, 2006. After hours, I go home to my husband Jason of three years and my two year old Chihuahua, Minnie. I have lived in Cape Girardeau every one of my 27 years. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and I love music. You can usually see me at any local concert up dancing and singing along!


 Hello, my name is Linda.  I live in Poplar Bluff.  I have been an orthodontic assistant for 33 years.  I have one daughter who is 27 named Tori.  Tori has given me two beautiful granddaughters:  Kassidy, who is 5, and Nevaeh, who is 3.  I spend my time with my daughter and granddaughters and our 3 dogs:  Corkie, a long haired Chihuahua, Millie, a weiner dog, and Spay, a chocolate lab.


 Hello, my name is Kimberly.  I am the proud mother of 3 beautiful daughters, Ashlee, Hailey, and Megan.  I also have 2 wonderful step-sons, Chase and Jaxson.  I have had the privilege of seeing many smiling faces throughout my career in the Orthodontic field.  I have watched our patients come in as timid children with crooked little smiles grow out of their shell into amazing adults with "of course" BEAUTIFUL SMILES!  I am also a full time student at Three Rivers College.  Very soon I will have my Associate of Arts degree in Business Administration, and then I will move on to my bachelors.  In my down time, along with my husband and our children, we enjoy watching movies together and just catching up on what has happened in the past week.  Friday night movie night is a tradition we look forward to each week.



Hi!  My name is Taylor, and I've been working at McGuire Orthodontics since September of 2012!  I graduated from Cape Central in 2010, which already seems like a century ago!  While in school I completed a dental assisting course which is when I discovered that I wanted to work in the dental field.  I have loved every minute of working here.  It makes me happy knowing that I work in a field that helps give people in all walks of life the confidence to smile a little brighter!  My hobbies include being outdoors, traveling, and being with friends and family.



My name is Lori Hicks.  I have lived in Poplar Bluff for 30 something years.  I attended and graduated Poplar Bluff Senior High.  I attended Three Rivers Community College to pursue a degree in Information Technology Systems.  I have a Cosmetology license and worked as a Hair Stylist for a short time.  I enjoy flea marketing and yard saleing in my spare time.  I have a son, and he attends Shady Grove State School.  He is the joy of my life!  I enjoy doing his favorite things with him.  We love to listen to music and dance around the house.  We love any outdoor activity from playing chase to watching birds, adn most of all dining at our favorite restaurants.  I love my job!  I enjoy talking to our patients, and I love my co-workers!!!
