Care & Compassion for those with Special Needs

Dr. Moenssen and her husband, Rob Marshke, have two beautiful boys, Ethan and Evan. One of Dr. Moenssen's greatest challenges, but also greatest gifts, is her older son Ethan, who lives with autism. She devotes much of her spare time to his treatment with a team of therapists, educators, and consultants. It is because of her journey with Ethan that Dr. Moenssen's understanding and compassion for those living with disabilities has grown. She is now sought out by many families to provide orthodontic treatment for their children with special needs.
