Hi, my name is Bridget, and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist. I bring more than 25 years of experience in the dental field to Sletten Orthodontics. I started as dental assistant and continued on with my education to become a hygienist. I have been with Dr. Sletten since 2007 as a Treatment Coordinator in our Stillwater location. I feel blessed to be part of an amazingly talented, warmhearted team. Our team fully believes that a healthy bite is key to long-term dental health and stability, and what a bonus to create beautiful smiles for our patients on their journey to health.

When I am not with my family at Sletten Orthodontics, I can be found in St. Mary's Point with Matt, my husband of 23 years; my boys, T.J. and Keegan; and our dog, Radar. In my free time, I enjoy being a volunteer Firefighter/EMT for the Lower St. Croix Valley Fire Department, working out, camping, playing softball, reading, and most importantly, chasing my boys to their activities. Oh, and the O'Brien's love cheering for the Minnesota Wild!
