Meet the Team

Jessica– Scheduling Coordinator

Originally from New Carlisle, Jessica graduated from New Prairie High School and attended Indiana University South Bend. Jessica has been working in the dental field since 2008 and we were happy to welcome her to our practice in July 2016. She is an invaluable asset to our team! Jessica says that the best thing about her job is being able to talk with patients and make them feel welcome the second they walk in the door; we think you'll notice her great smile! She feels so thankful to be part of such a great work environment. Outside of work, Jessica enjoys Fall and all things pumpkin....pumpkin pie, pumpkin yogurt, even pumpkin crackers! She is the proud mother of one son, Evan, who currently attends Indiana University South Bend.

 

Arin – Office Manager / Accounts Payable

Arin joined our practice in 2009 with her A.A.S. degree in Accounting. She truly enjoys being a member of such a great team and loves that her job allows her to work with numbers; she's pretty sure math makes the whole world make sense. Arin has been happily married since 1995 and has four great kids, three of which are teenegers, so if she seemes frazzled, be kind to her. Her hobbies outside of work include volunteering at church, reading, traveling, hiking, and cheering for the Chicago Bears (even though that's somewhat painful these days). Arin has traveled twice to Ukraine on mission trips and has actually been swimming in the Black Sea!
