Meet the Doctors


“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”

Loren Israelsen, DDS

I enjoy hanging out with my wife and two children. We love the outdoors, hiking, and biking. I grew up on a small farm in northern Utah, and had the opportunity to raise cattle, pigs and sheep. I enjoyed showing animals at the county fair growing up, and look forward to allowing my children the same opportunity. I learned the value of hardwork and other valuable life lessons growing up on a farm. I love family dentistry and developing relationships with my patients and their families. I’m working right now on extra training to perfect dental implants and Invisalign® orthodontics.

“Everywhere you go, take a smile with you.”

Monica Wandro, DDS

Having recently moved from Iowa, my husband and I have enjoyed a change of scenery. We have been exploring Oklahoma by hiking, biking, and kayaking across the state. Being an Iowa State University (Biology) and University of Iowa (Doctor of Dental Surgery) alum, I am adjusting to seeing Sooners and Cowboys gear everywhere. However, exchanging -5 degrees for 105 degrees wasn’t a bad trade. We can’t wait to discover all that Oklahoma has to offer!


Dentistry techniques are always advancing- making life-long learning fun and rewarding! I’ve newly completed advanced training for clear aligners orthodontics and am exploring the benefits digital and 3D dentistry has to offer. I’ve worked with patients ranging from ages 1 to 100 years! My job is to make visiting the dentist an enjoyable experience and that starts with forming positive relationships from the moment you’re in my chair. Welcome to Shawnee Dentistry and Braces- I can’t wait to meet you!

Hayley McDougal, DDS

She enjoys hiking and being outdoors, reading, crocheting, and trying new foods. She and her husband regard themselves as big foodies. Dr. McDougal’s goal for her patients is not only to achieve great oral health for them, but also to ensure they are taken care of in all aspects. She hopes to contribute to the overall wellbeing of each of her patients. She believes dentistry is the perfect combination of healthcare and art.
