I am married to Rick and have 3 children...Alex, Max, and Raegan...all very busy with sports. Alex lives in Estes Park, CO, and we love to visit her in Colorado! We enjoy watching sports, exercising, and boating in the summer! We also have a German Shepherd and her name is Lindsay.

I enjoy exercising and playing with my Havipoo Nala - she graduated #1 in her obedience school! I started working at Crowe & McGuire Orthodontics in 1993. I’ve always loved being around the kids in our office and have enjoyed watching them grow up! It’s a great place to work! I had braces from Dr. Crowe as an adult at age 35. My children also had braces here. Ask me to see my “before and after” plaster casts of my teeth, and you’ll know why I love this place!
My name is Jaime and I've been with Crowe and McGuire Orthodontics for a total of 15 years. Like most of the people who work here, I had braces from Dr. Crowe when I was a child. I have been a Certified Orthodontic Assistant since 2007. The best part of my day is interacting with the patients and their families. I enjoy everyone I work with and I am proud to say I work with two of the best bosses in Southeast Missouri. Look for me in the impressions area of the office. Family is very important to me. I have two sons: Kurtis, who is 12, and Kennedy, who is four. I love spending time with my boys and my family. Or favorite family recreation is four wheeling and mudding. We also go fishing and ride our bikes in the park in our spare time.
My name is Shannon. I am a Certified Orthodontic Assistant at Crowe and McGuire Orthodontics. I have been here since February 2006 and loved every minute. Twelve years ago I was a patient! Now that I am all grown up I have a wonderful family of my own. I have a husband named Robert and in June 2010 we welcomed a baby girl named Presleigh Olivia. She is the sweetest thing ever! You will probably always see a picture of her hanging at my unit in our offices. We love taking walks and going to her daddy's volleyball and fast-pitch softball games. Outside is our favorite place to be. We live near East Perry County and living in the country is definitely for us! I hope you enjoy your visits to our offices. We will surprise you with how much fun going to the Orthodontist can be!
My name is Melissa Crowe. Everyone calls me Missy. I’ve worked for Crowe & McGuire Orthodontics since 1982 (back then it was just Crowe Orthodontics). I work in accounts payable, payroll and managing our office. I also assist Dr. Crowe and McGuire with new patient exams and consultations. I have been married to Dr. Crowe for eleven years. I enjoy spending time with our three boys (they are away to college now), hiking, gardening and enjoy traveling. I have two dogs, Wally and Beaver (Labrador Retrievers). They’re getting kind of old now and require more attention; which, lucky for them, I love to give. I’m looking forward to seeing you in our office. If you ever have any questions or need anything, please feel free to ask for Missy!
Hi! My name is Jami. I've worked as an orthodontic assistant at Crowe and McGuire Orthodontics since June, 2004; however, I've been an assistant since 1999. I have successfully passed my National Certified Orthodontic Assisting exam, my Expanded Functions Dental exam, and the Basic Skills Dentistry exam. I married my high school sweetheart, Steven, in July 2000. We have been blessed with two beautiful girls, Emily, 7; and Lauren, 3. They keep us very busy with gymnastics, dance, and softball throughout the year and we are loving every minute of it. I have been especially busy these last couple of years with going back to college to finish my bachelor's degree in Health Science and will be applying to the Dental Hygiene Program in the year 2012, in the hopes of becoming a dental hygienist. I have been very blessed with the support of my family at home and with my family at work, which is exactly how I think of them. I have several hobbies when I am not busy with my kids, school or work, which are reading, star gazing with my telescope, taking walks, and watching movies. Even though my road as an orthodontic assistant will be coming to an end and a new one will begin as a dental hygienist, I will always consider Crowe and McGuire my home and I think once you visit out office, you'll feel the same way! Hope to see you soon!
My name is Kristi. I started working for Crowe and 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.

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.

My name is Brittany Wagner. I moved to the Southeast Missouri area 2 1/2 yearsa ago from Chicago. I decided to move right after I graduated from high school to be closer to my family. I spent one year studying general courses at Three Rivers College. After realizing that dentistry was the field I wanted for my life-long career, I decided to take a dental assisting evening class in Cape. I have never been happier with a decision in my life. My wonderful instructor led me to McGuire Orthodontics, which has given me the oppportunity to work in an environment I am passionate about. Not only do I get to work one on one with our patients, but I am privileged to work with an amazing group of people. I love the fact that I assist in creating beautiful smiles everyday. When I am not in the office, you can catch me caught up in a good movie or book. I enjoy spending quality time with family and friends as well. In the future I plan to stay with McGuire Orthodontics, get married, and become a mother. I have leared that every dream can become a reality if you work for it. I can honestly say that I am living my dream everyday.

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.
