Our friendly, dedicated, and energetic team is committed to working with you and your family to create a positive experience every time you visit our practice.
We welcome you with warm smiles to our practice!
I am one of the smiling faces patients see when they first walk in the door. I do whatever I can to help our office run smoothly. I love being a part of a team that creates beautiful smiles and improves dental health and confidence. My favorite thing outside the office is spending time with my husband, Steve, our three children and their spouses, and our grandchildren. I love to read when time permits, as well as being involved with church activities.
I usually am helping people at the front desk, greeting guests, making appointments, and answering phone calls, but occasionally you will see me in the clinic assisting Dr. Shank with patient treatment. I received my education at Indiana University School of Dentistry in expanded functions dental assisting. The thing I like most about working in orthodontics is the ability to interact with the patients. I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my niece Evelyn, my fiancé, and my two dogs Rocky and Lucy. Traveling, riding a motorcycle with my fiancé, and spending time outdoors are some of my favorite pastimes. I look forward to getting to know you!
Scheduling Coordinator/Orthodontic Assistant
Helping my patients to have a positive orthodontic experience is the best part of my day. I love to hear about all their interesting activities, whether it is about work, school, or family. I also enjoy learning about new technology and ways to make our patients’ visits more pleasant. I live in Center Grove with my husband, Cory, and our two children, Sydney and Max. I am active in my church and in my children’s schools’ PTO. In my free time I enjoy going to the movies with my family and watching football.
My role is to assist Dr. Shank with chair-side procedures in the clinic. I bring 12 years of experience in the dental field with me to the team, including 6 years in general dentistry and 6 years in orthodontics. I love orthodontics because I enjoy seeing our patients finish treatment with a beautiful smile. I enjoy working with Dr. Shank because she is very kind to her patients. My three sons and I live in Perry Township. We attend St. Barnabas Church and School. In my spare time, I enjoy playing softball, watching my kids play sports, and spending time with friends.
