Meet the Team


Stephanie Mcdaniel
Treatment Coordinator

Stephanie has always known she wanted to be in the dental field. She would come home from her dental checkups and make her brother be her patient. Growing up in John Day, where everyone knows everyone, she brings a sense of small town to our office. She enjoys hunting, fishing, jet skiing and the outdoors with her husband and baby girl, Roe. From the very beginning she loved going to the orthodontist and wants our patients to have the same great experience!

She enjoys being a part of a team that provides quality care in a positive environment for their patients. In her free time, Nicole enjoys hunting, camping, riding horses and exploring the outdoors with her boyfriend, David, and their two dogs, Sage and Jager.

Orthodontic Assistant

Chelsea grew up in Central Oregon. With her father being a denturist, she saw the positive change in his patients when they had a great smile. This helped Chelsea to decide to be an Orthodontic Assistant. Her goals are to help people become more confident and to spread that joy to others by helping create beautiful, wide smiles. During her free time, Chelsea can be found in the outdoors with her two amazing children.


Juan Flores
Orthodontic Assistant

Juan is originally from Los Angeles, Ca. He moved to Central Oregon in 2012 and graduated as a dental assistant from Central Oregon Community College in 2017. Juan enjoys working with Dr. Sullivan in providing the many different options our office has to offer in orthodontic treatment for Central Oregon. “Being part of a dedicated, and caring team… and witnessing our patients progress and end result is a fulfilling thing to be a part of.” Outside of the office Juan can be found riding his bike around town, spending time with his family, or enjoying everything Central Oregon has to offer.


Scheduling Coordinator

Karen was raised in the Midwest and moved to the West Coast about 28 years ago. She really enjoys the weather and activities here in the Pacific Northwest. Her kids and grandkids all live here, too. She has worked in customer service for over 30 years. Both of her boys had braces growing up and she witnessed what a difference it made in their confidence as adults. She is excited to be part of the Sullivan Orthodontic Team.


Orthodontic Assistant

Stephanie grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. She began working as a dental assistant at the age of 18. A couple years later she moved into the field of orthodontics because she enjoyed working more “hands-on” and loved seeing the change and improvement in her patients’ smiles and lives. She even got to do her own mother’s braces! After moving to a few different states and working different jobs, she knew she was happiest working with orthodontic patients of all ages. Stephanie moved to Bend and joined the Sullivan Orthodontics team in May of 2019. In her spare time Stephanie enjoys the outdoors, and is an avid skier, snowboarder, and mountain biker.

Araceli was born and raised in California where she attended American Career College. She received her radiology dental license in 2001. Having experience in all areas of dentistry, Araceli finds orthodontics to be her favorite because she enjoys seeing the big smile on her patients’ faces at the end of their treatment. She loves knowing she has helped her patients reach a confident smile that will last a lifetime. She considers herself a very hard working woman with a gift of prioritizing her patients’ needs. Araceli loves this field so much that she will continue assisting her patients in orthodontics for as long as she lives.

  • Amazing staff. Dr. Sullivan and his staff were absolutely wonderful with my son. My 9 year old had to have head gear and was pretty scared at first. They were very good about encouraging him and supporting him. It was a smooth and pleasant experience from start to finish. I would recommend Dr. Sullivan to anyone I know.

Also a very reasonable price with payment plans you can't deny, they really cater to make everything work for you!

  • We love Dr. Sullivan and his office staff! Dr. Sullivan is very professional and caring. My daughter had a difficult case which required two sets of braces over a span of several years. We are thrilled with the outcome and the care we received. I highly recommend Dr. Sullivan!!
