 Sandy Patzer

Sandy is one of our Orthodontic Assistants and our Lead Lab Technician. She has been in the orthodontic industry for over 25 years. She is from the Seattle, WA area, but has been in St. George since 2010. Sandy has been with Burke Ortho since the very beginning when Dr. Burke started his private practice in 2010. Sandy is our shining example of strength and courage and is adored by the entire Burke Ortho Team, as well as all of our patients. In her spare time, Sandy enjoys hiking, skiing, and yoga. One thing we love most about Sandy is her go-getter personality. She’s a dare devil, always willing to try anything, whether it be wake boarding  or learning how to surf behind the boat!


Jessica Bohacek

Jess wears many hats at Burke Ortho. She is the financial coordinator and director of marketing. When we are super busy at the office, you may even see her  sterilizing instruments and taking x-rays. Jess is a very talented photographer and takes all of the photos featured on our website, billboard, and throughout our office. Burke Ortho is lucky to have such a talented and hard working girl on their team. When she is not busy working at Burke Ortho, Jess enjoys camping, water sports, and adventures of all kinds. She adores children, and even watches Dr. Burke’s kids on occasion.  In fact, because of her knack for dealing so well with Dr. Burke’s rascally children and her ability to multi-task so effectively,  it was Dr. Burke’s wife who recommended that Jess work at Burke Ortho!


 Giselle Alger

Giselle is one of our Orthodontic Assistants. She attended Dixie State University and loves being active. Giselle is very determined when it comes to health and fitness, and is always working towards improving herself in everything she does. She is a All-star cheerleader when it comes to supporting her high school sweetheart, Danry, in his body building journey! Not only is Giselle an amazing clinical assistant, she is known to be the best dog sitter in town for Dr. Burke’s adorable pup, Oakli.  She loves most animals, but it has been said that she is afraid of birds, specifically ostriches and turkeys. She has a fun, easy-going personality, which makes her incredibly easy to get along with!



Kimberlee Esplin

Kim is one of our Orthodontic Asisstants. She attended Utah Valley University before serving an LDS mission in Arcadia, California. Kim has a knack for making our patients feel comfortable and is a friend to everybody. She keeps us laughing non-stop with her fun personality and awesome sense of humor. She is engaged to her high school sweetheart, Bud, and loves being outdoors. After being attacked by a dog at a young age, Kim underwent plastic surgery. Thankfully however, the docs did a great job and she is still an avid dog lover!




Sarah Hendrix

Sarah is our treatment coordinator. She handles the initial consultations with our new patients and makes sure all your orthodontic needs are met and able to fit within your budget. She enjoys being outdoors, playing sports, and spending time at her family’s cabin in the mountains. She served in the South Carolina Columbia Mission and returned home in October of 2015. Sarah is from the small town of Logandale, Nevada, home of the Clark County Fair, where she was crowned Rodeo Queen…we’ve got some royalty on our hands! Her easy-going, optimistic personality has us feeling extremely lucky to have Sarah as part of our Burke Ortho team, and we know you’ll love her just as much as we do!





“They even knew my birthday and surprised me with a gift card. It is truly an amazing place full of hard-working people who care about their patients. After my first appointment, I knew I never wanted to go anywhere else. I strongly recommend Burke Orthodontics for everyone.” – Teressa C.
