Alford Orthodontics is now Bettagere Orthodontics

Meet the Team


We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Office Manager and Financial Coordinator

Orthodontics is my passion and I love the experiences I have built with both amazing patients and supportive and wonderful team members over my 20 years of being in this field. I am excited to share the Bettagere vision and enthusiasm for exceptional patient care and excellence. I want you to feel like family at each visit! Orthodontics is a lifetime investment and we all want to make your time with us fun and rewarding! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, a career firefighter. Together, we have a daughter in the US Navy, a son in the US Marine Corps, a 21 year old daughter, and a 10 year old son who attends Lapel Elementary. I enjoy reading, camping, and traveling to visit our children as much as possible.


Treatment Coordinator

I love spending my day meeting our new patients and forming lasting relationships with them. My job involves educating patients about orthodontics and different treatment options, discussing proposed treatment plans, and explaining financial options. My goal is to make all patients comfortable and happy to be a part of the Bettagere Orthodontics family!

I am from Lafayette, but I moved to Anderson in 2015. I am happily married to my husband Gino, and we have two children, Nico and Lola. I love crafting, photography, traveling, and most of all spending time with my family.


Insurance Coordinator

I am happy to work closely with patients and parents, to make sure they are able to maximize their insurance benefits. Seeing a person’s relief when I’m able to show they can afford to improve their oral health and smile makes my day! I love how everyone at our office is a team player and so enthusiastic about our patients’ comfort and smiles! I verify and submit insurance claims, input payments, and research benefit coverage. I also schedule appointments. I’ve been happily married for almost 30 years. My wonderful husband is a pastor. Being a pastor’s wife keeps me busy, but I find time to captain two tennis teams, play tennis every other day, and ride my bike. Of course, being with our two children and four grandchildren, is a priority!


New Patient Coordinator

I love seeing the change in a patient's smile every time they visit the office. It is my responsibility to arrange new patient exams while obtaining demographics and history to help patients start their journey to a new smile. I love helping patients in anyway possible to facilitate a smooth process. 

When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, Dylan, and our reptile family. I also play on an adult volleyball league and love to read, camp, and spend time with my friends and family.


Clinical Coordinator and Chairside Assistant 

It’s so much fun to get to know our patients. I look forward to hearing about each person’s latest adventures and accomplishments just as much as I look forward to seeing their new smile develop! We have a remarkable office, and Dr. Bettagere and my teammates feel like a big family. We care about our patients as people, not just their smiles! I offer chairside assistance during orthodontic procedures.

When I’m not working, I enjoy time with my husband of 25 years, as well as our two children and two dogs. I love going to concerts and Colts games, roller-skating, and walking.


Chairside Assistant and Inventory Manager

I really like meeting all kinds of people and learning about their lives. Giving people beautiful smiles and confidence that changes their lives forever is incredibly fulfilling! Our practice feels like one big family. We all get along so well that it’s a joy to come to work every day! I work in the clinic, and provide chairside assistance with different orthodontic procedures. I also track and order our supplies, so we’re prepared for whatever patients might need.

My favorite times when I’m not working are spent with my spouse and three children. I love camping, being with family and friends, and working in my yard.


Marketing Specialist and Chairside Assistant

I like connecting with patients and seeing their smiles and personalities transition throughout their treatment. Giving someone a smile they love, and sharing in their orthodontic experience, is truly amazing! I have a lot of fun with Dr. Bettagere and the rest of our staff. They are my friends and feel like family

I love spending all of my free time with my husband Luke, our newborn son Sam, and our dog Junie. I also like writing, reading, and binge-watching Netflix.


Chairside Assistant and Lab Technician

Having been in the orthodontic field for 9 years, joining the Bettagere team and expanding my clinical functions has been a highlight of my year.  My work team feels like family and I love building relationships with our patients each day.  I enjoy helping create new smiles as a chairside assistant while also working behind the scenes in the laboratory helping produce our retention appliances.  

In my free time, I love to work out and spend time with my family and my many fur babies.


Chairside Assistant

I work in the clinic and provide assistance with a variety of procedures including placing and removing brackets. I love one on one interactions with people. I enjoy watching patient's smiles transform into something they love!

I enjoy spending time with friends and family in my free time. I love to travel and go on late night adventures!
