meet dr. rauchle

       Hello! My name is Dr. Rauchle, and just to throw you a curveball, here's how we pronounce it: "ruh-SHELL" crazy, right?!..... So "Dr. R" also works. I am so excited to be here at La Grande Orthodontics! Believe it or not I came to visit this practice over a full year before I could move and decided then and there that this was a place I wanted to work. I am all about the fun and laughter that is foundational to the culture, and I am so lucky to work with all of the wonderful people here who put a smile on my face every day. I particularly love treating children (you may know me for my famous glove balloons) and during my time in residency at OHSU in Portland, OR I developed a specific passion for treating complex cases involving cleft lip and palate, craniofacial anomalies, and orthognathic surgery. I feel very fortunate to be able to bring my experience in treating a large variety of unique and multidisciplinary cases to patients in La Grande. I pride myself in clinical excellence, with the very important caveat that fun is had at the same time!

Keep on smiling =)
