Expanded Functions Dental Assistant

I started my dental career as an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant in 1998.  I earned my certification from J. Everett Light Career Center.  I am Indiana State certified in dental x-rays.  I enjoy making a difference in patients’ lives.  I have been married to the love of my life for 13 years.  We have two beautiful children, Makayla and Logan.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.  I love being outdoors; swimming and watching my kids grow up. 


Licensed Dental Hygienist

I graduated from Southport High School in 1973. I began my career as a dental assistant.  I loved the dental field so much I decided to expand my knowledge. I graduated from IUPUI in 1985 with Associates in Dental Hygiene.  I started working with Dr. Patton’s office in 1994.  I enjoy helping patients feel comfortable and educate them in keeping healthy smiles.  I have been married for 31 years.  We have 2 daughters Samantha and Shannon.  I enjoy working outside and with animals.


Licensed Dental Hygienist

I started my dental career in 2013 when I earned my Associates in Dental Hygiene from I.U. School Of Dentistry in Indianapolis.  I was blessed to join Dr. Patton’s fabulous team in 2014.  I love making patients feel comfortable in the office and confident in their smile.  I enjoy crafting, cooking, and cracking up laughing with my daughter.


I graduated from Indiana University in 2015 and started dental school at Indiana University and recently finished my first year. I am looking forward to working in a dental office and being able to interact with patients outside of the classroom. I enjoy being active and outdoors and am an avid cyclist, skier, and runner.


Front Office Manager

I graduated from Center Grove High School and attended Med Tech College. I have been working in the dental field since 2011. I enjoy welcoming patients to the office and helping them with all their scheduling and insurance needs. I have three daughters who keep me busy with travel softball, cheerleading and Riley Hospital events. I enjoy spending time with my girls, being outdoors, and listening to live music.
