Office Manager and Financial Coordinator
I love building relationships with our patients and families. We serve an amazing community, and it’s a great feeling to help people I care about transform their lives by changing their smiles! Our staff is dedicated, and highly trained, and we work together as a team. We all want our patients to have a wonderful orthodontic experience and to be smiling at every visit! I manage every aspect of our practice, to ensure the office functions properly and patients have stress-free visits.
Outside of work, I love going to concerts, hiking and traveling, cooking, and spending time with my husband, children, and friends.
I am a people person and look forward to meeting new patients as well as reconnecting with established patients. It’s amazing to see how a beautiful new smile transforms people: not only everyone’s appearance but their confidence and self-esteem! We have the hardest-working orthodontic team, an incredible doctor, and each of us has a passion for creating beautiful smiles and having fun, too! I manage our schedule, set appointments for patients, and assist with the daily front office administration.
During my spare time, I love being outdoors, especially playing tennis, walking, and visiting my children.
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 three (soon to be four!) grandchildren, is a priority!
I love working with Dr. Bettagere and our close-knit team as we help patients develop life-changing smiles! Our office is positive and encouraging, and each of us is committed to making orthodontic treatment a breeze. I see all of our new patients with Dr. Bettagere. Together, we discuss their orthodontic concerns and review the treatment plan. It’s important for patients and parents to have all the information they need to decide whether a treatment is right for them!
My favorite times when I’m not at work are spent with my wonderful family and friends. I also enjoy design and painting, and I love to cook!
Clinical Coordinator and Chairside Assistant
It’s 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 and also handle marketing for the practice.
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.
I look forward to meeting new patients and getting to know them. Everyone has fun stories to share, and I am so happy when patients tell me about their lives. We’re always laughing together, and that makes for a wonderful day. I work in the clinic, assisting Dr. Bettagere with placing brackets, changing color ties and wires, and — best of all — removing braces! Ours is a friendly office, where our patients, their parents, and my doctor and teammates are a big family!
Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with family and friends and watching movies. I have two adorable pets: a dog named Mick and a cat named Molly.
Marketing Specialist, Lab Tech, 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 and our two puppies Junie and Cece. I also like writing, reading, and binge-watching Netflix.
