Family and Personal Life

Alongside her professional achievements, Dr. Struckhoff is a loving wife to Rob and a devoted mother to two children, Megan and Evan. Her decision to pursue orthodontics, however, was not part of her initial career plan.

Unlikely Path to Orthodontics

Initially working as a mechanical engineer after college, Dr. Struckhoff felt the need for more tangible, day-to-day results from her efforts. One fateful day, the idea of becoming an orthodontist popped into her head during her commute. Grateful for this unexpected revelation, she embarked on a new journey, leaving behind her engineering career for the world of orthodontics.

Passion for Transformations

Dr. Struckhoff finds immense joy in her role as an orthodontist. Witnessing the “before and after” transformations of her patients’ teeth is a source of inspiration. She points out the early excitement as patients notice significant changes within the first few months of wearing braces. Despite the shift in career, she continues to apply her engineering skills, adapting them to the intricacies of orthodontic work.

Personal Tastes and Hobbies

In music, she defers to her children’s choices during car rides, embracing a mix of AJR, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Niall Horan, Dua Lipa, Paul Russell, and more. Her movie preferences lean towards Christmas classics, with favorites like “Elf,” “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” and “Home Alone.” She also really enjoyed the Barbie movie this summer.
