Meet Dr. Botsford

Dr. Botsford, DMD, MSD

What a privilege it is to be able to work with so many wonderful patients and help craft them smiles that they are proud of! I feel incredibly grateful to be in a profession that I absolutely love. There is nothing more rewarding than feeling like I am truly making a difference in the lives of those in my community, including children, adults and everyone in between! Orthodontics is about so much more than a beautiful smile. It’s what that smile can do- helping individuals build their confidence and self-esteem to excel in other aspects of their lives- that is so meaningful to me. My goal as an orthodontist is to help each of my patients achieve beautifully aligned teeth, balanced facial esthetics and a functional bite through careful diagnosis and customized treatment planning. I am passionate about building long-lasting relationships throughout treatment and beyond and look forward to the opportunity to serve you!


Dr. Botsford grew up in northern California and received a Bachelor of Science in Biology with minors in Psychology and Music Performance from the University of California San Diego. She decided to trade in the Pacific Ocean for the Rocky Mountains and pursued her dental studies in South Jordan, Utah where she graduated from Roseman University of Health Sciences with a Doctorate of Dental Medicine. Dr. Botsford was recognized with multiple awards throughout her dental education including the Distinguished Leadership Award and Scholarship as well as the Distinguished Service to the Community Award, based on faculty evaluations. Following dental school, Dr. Botsford completed her orthodontic residency at Indiana University where she received a Master of Science and Certificate in Orthodontics. Dr. Botsford is an active member of the American Dental Association, the American Association of Orthodontists, the Oregon Dental Association and the Rogue Valley Dental Society.

Personal Life

Outside of the office, you can find Dr. Botsford spending time with her family. She and her husband, Paul, a southern Oregon native, have an energetic one year old, Tate, and a chocolate lab, Hobbes, who both keep them on their toes! Together, they love to spend time outdoors, whether it’s taking a relaxing walk in their neighborhood, enjoying a concert at the Britt, or rafting and camping along the Lower Rogue River. She is thrilled to call southern Oregon her new home and looks forward to all the adventures to come!

Ricci Beasley Client


I always have awesome experiences here! I can have both my boys go together and they feel so much more comfortable having eachother along with the patient staff since they are 3 and 5 years old! I leave with so many tips and the entire staff makes the time quick, easy and fun!

Valerie Castillo Client


Such a wonderful place to take your kids. I wanted a dentist that made my little ones experience fun. I didnt want a dentist that would be rushed or get frustrated with toddler behavior. Dr. Waschak has fun with the little ones. He make noises & plays while doing the exam. It keeps my child interested & calm. I will never take my kids anywhere else. My very busy little handful of a now 3 year old has no problems there. We are very grateful to have found him!!
