Our Staff

Natalie Govan

Lead Orthodontic Assistant, Invisalign Clinical Coordinator

I am originally from O’Fallon, Missouri. After high school graduation, I attended St. Charles Community College for two years. Fun fact: I met Dr. Dougherty waitressing her table! I immediately fell in love with the field and became her Lead Orthodontic Assistant and Invisalign Clinical Coordinator in August 2014. My favorite part of the job is forming relationships with all of our patients and seeing their transformation from the start of treatment to the end. Outside of work, I love to travel, spend time with my family and friends at the lake, and, of course, play with my English golden retriever, Marley!

Kierstyn Lang

Orthodontic Assistant

I was born in Washington, Missouri. I became interested in dentistry when I realized that the first thing I notice about people are their smiles. I started at Dougherty Orthodontics in March 2015. My favorite part of my job is seeing a patient’s confidence grow through giving them the smile they’ve always wanted. My team tells me I’m an awesome team player, always hard-working, and very eager to get to know each and every one of our patients. I have a golden retriever, Rigley. During my free time, I enjoy going to the lake and volunteering in the nursery at my church.

Lynn Hager

Treatment Coordinator

I have been in the orthodontic field for over 32 years. I found my perfect fit with the best team in St. Louis when I started working for Dougherty Orthodontics in 2015! I am the Treatment Coordinator and also an expanded-functions orthodontic assistant. I take pride in my job. I’m super friendly and enjoy walking every new patient through the process of orthodontic treatment. Kids love my fun, outgoing personality, and my team loves me because I’m always cracking jokes. Life keeps me busy raising two beautiful girls and spending time with my loving husband, Michael. Outside the office, you can find me enjoying country music, gardening, doing crafts, and traveling to beautiful places on my bucket list!

Jaime Daniels

Financial Coordinator

I was born and raised in Creve Coeur, Missouri and graduated from Lindenwood University with a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing. I have over 15 years of experience in the orthodontic field and have known Dr. Dougherty since 2008. I started working at Dougherty Orthodontics in January 2017. My experience, high energy, and team-player attitude have made me a great addition to the team, if I do say so myself. Outside of work, I love spending time with my two children, crazy puppy, and amazing husband!

Brittiny Pearson

Scheduling Coordinator

I am originally from Madison, Wisconsin. I am a certified Dental Assistant and have two years of experience in the dental field. I joined the Dougherty Orthodontics team in August 2017. I love my role as Scheduling Coordinator! My favorite part of the job is developing relationships with patients. I recently got married and love spending time with my husband and two crazy (not yet potty-trained) adopted pups. I love running, indoor cycling, hiking, and eating anything sweet.
