Meet the Team

Dr. Brinley and Dr. Kim are your experienced Maryville, IL orthodontists. Call our office today to schedule your first appointment!



Lab Technician

I’m responsible for making appliances for our patients. This includes retainers, night guards, splints, and sleep appliances. Working with Dr. Brinley is great; she’s really down to Earth and cares so much about her patients and staff.

I love my family and the Lord. I enjoy decorating and spending time with the people I love.

Erin Hart

Orthodontic Assistant

I work with our patients by putting on braces, doing adjustments, removing braces at the end of treatment, and teaching them how to care for their teeth, braces, and appliances. Dr. Brinley and the staff here are awesome, and I love coming to work every day because of them and all of our outstanding patients. I completed my internship at this office before moving to Las Vegas for a while, but now I’m back with Brinley Orthodontics!

I have five wonderful children and one beautiful grandson that keep me busy and on my toes. I love spending time with my family and enjoy going out with my boyfriend and friends. I also like to ride motorcycles and meet new people when I can.

Erin Hill

Office Manager

I'm responsible for making sure the office runs smoothly by: making sure the staff is doing their jobs, working with vendors, ensuring the facilities are clean and safe, and overseeing the scheduling of patients and staff. I’ve been in the dental field since 1997 and worked as a dental assistant and receptionist before joining Brinley Orthodontics.

During my time off, I like to spend time outdoors. I love to hunt, fish, camp, ride motorcycles, and be with friends and family.


Orthodontic Assistant

I work with patients by taking X-rays, photos, and impressions. I put their braces on and take them off, do their adjustments and repair work, and teach them how to take care of their teeth, braces, and appliances. I love meeting new patients and seeing their smiles change from start to finish. My co-workers and the doctor are amazing people that are great to be around.

I have two amazing daughters at home, Kinsley and Macie, who keep me very busy. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family as well as shopping and being outdoors.


Sterilization Technician

I’m responsible for cleaning and sterilizing instruments and making sure they are safe to use for each patient. I also prepare all the different procedure trays for our orthodontic assistants to use. I get a kick out of joking around with our patients and love getting to know them.

When I’m not at work, I like to spend time with my husband and our three pugs. I stay active in my local community by participating in Collinsville Junior Service, and my neighborhood book and Bunko clubs.


Clinical and Marketing Coordinator

As the clinical coordinator at Brinley Orthodontics, it is my job to make sure patients are seen in a timely manner by guiding Dr. Brinley to where she needs to be. Throughout the day, I do whatever I can to assure that all of our patients are receiving the best treatment available that is tailored to their needs.

As the marketing coordinator in our office, I plan our participation in community events like parades, festivals, and school events. This allows us to network with potential patients and their families.

I enjoy meeting new people and trying new things. When I’m not working, I like to travel and eat out, especially with my friends! I love making people laugh and seeing the people around me be happy. I’m also actively involved with Junior Chamber International Collinsville.

Kim D.

Financial Coordinator

My primary duties are to deal with insurance, financing, scheduling, and accounting. I’ve worked on financials and insurance in the dental field for eight years. The best part about my job would definitely have to be the strong relationships I have with our patients, my co-workers, and Dr. Brinley.

I’m happily married and have a daughter and one cat. We like to spend our time with family and friends. We also like to be outdoors, go camping, go to amusement parks, and relax at the beach. In reality, we just like to be together as a family!

Kim S.

Orthodontic Assistant

I assist Dr. Brinley, place brackets, and change colors and wires on braces. I really like interacting with our patients and seeing them progress through treatment from start to finish. They always end up with an amazing smile and more confidence to boot! Everyone here has a great sense of humor, which really makes it fun to come into work.

I’m married and have a little boy who stole my heart. I enjoy spending my free time with my family. Watching my son grow each day is a new and rewarding experience. It’s awesome being a mom and wife (and finding a good bargain)!


Front Desk Receptionist

I greet patients, answer phones, schedule appointments, check patients in and out, and assist with office paperwork like scanning, printing, mailing, and submitting claims. I worked as a dental assistant for many years at other offices before accepting my current position at Brinley Orthodontics. It’s a joy getting to meet and mingle with all of our patients. Our team is fun but very effective; we work extremely well together and with the doctor.

I’ve been married to the love of my life, Chad, for more than 23 years. He is my best friend and we have three beautiful children: Dakota, Mikayla, and Dawson. We have a Chow Chow named Cubby and love spending our free time together just hanging out, watching movies, laughing and joking! Our faith is also very important to us and I enjoy volunteering in a door-to-door ministry whenever I can.


Orthodontic Assistant

I am responsible for taking X-rays and impressions, changing our patients wires and ties as instructed by the doctor, and showing patients how to use and care for their braces and appliances. I’ve been obsessed with dentistry since I was a young girl and am so proud to be a part of the fine team at Brinley Orthodontics. I love seeing our patients get excited about getting their braces put on, but love it even more when they see their amazing new smile after treatment is completed!

I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for over ten years and we have two beautiful boys. We enjoy spending time outdoors with our friends and going to the Lake of the Ozarks in the summer. I’m also a personal trainer/fitness coach and like working out and experimenting with new recipes.
