The Richard Chan Orthodontics team works together to make sure the office runs efficiently and smoothly. Every member is knowledgeable, highly trained and best of all, enthusiastic and friendly. Our staff will be a big part of your treatment, so get to know them.
Vanessa is quite well read. If you asked her for her favorite book, she would most likely respond that there are so many she couldn’t pick just one! Her favorite movie is Pride and Prejudice. Can you tell what some of Vanessa’s favorite things are? You guessed it – reading and watching movies.
Vanessa also loves hanging out with friends, shopping, and spending time with her nieces. You might find Vanessa in Hawaii or Europe if you were to run into her on a dream vacation! She even backpacked through Europe for two months after graduating college.
Vanessa loves meeting new people and helping them have a great experience at our office.
Belen is the bright face greeting you as you enter our offices. She loves meeting new people – especially our patients!

She loves playing sports as well – soccer, basketball, baseball, even dancing!
Belen would love to take a dream vacation to both Hawaii and Italy.
Lucy always has a smile on her face when she’s at our office, which makes sense since getting to know our patients is her favorite part of her job.
Lucy has two younger sisters and a pug named Lola. She loves to dance and spends time with her family.
Her favorite movie is The Little Rascals and her favorite books are The Twilight Series novels. Lucy would love to travel someday to both Venice, Italy and Japan.
When Amanda is not busy with her husband or five children – ages 15,13,11,6 and 4 – you might find her in our clinic. She loves getting to know patients and their families, being able to watch them grow through the years while acquiring beautiful smiles.
Amanda loves to run, read, and garden. She loves going to the beach, especially on the Oregon Coast and loves watching her children play competitive sports – from football (Go BHS!) to baseball to soccer, wrestling and cross country and track.
Amanda also likes spending time with her two cats, Floofy Pie and Mavis, and can recite any line from the movie Napoleon Dynamite from memory! If she ever gets a break from her busy life, you might find her on a cruise around the world.
She has also been published in several paper crafting magazines and websites for hand-crafted cards she has designed and created.
Did you know that Amanda’s dad is a retired Orthodontist? Making beautiful smiles must run in her family!
Joy is at the top of her game and is always happy and willing to solve any account issues. She loves when the insurance companies pay out more than expected – don’t we all!?!
Her favorite books are The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up and Spark Joy, which have most likely come in handy as she and her husband raised three sons aged 25, 19 and 19! (Yup, two staff members with twins)!
With her busy life, Joy still manages to find time to cheer on the Mariners – if not at the ball park, then on TV! She also loves watching movies, baking, cooking, organizing and getting together with friends. If you found Joy taking a break from all of this, you’d find her somewhere warm by the water with a book and an iced tea…not being expected to do anything!
Something you might not know about Joy is that she came to the United States from Japan without any family when she was 14-years-old.
