Marty

 

Treatment Coordinator

I grew up in Anderson and graduated from Indiana University in Bloomington. I have been at Ripley Orthodontics for over 14 years, and I help facilitate the new patient process. I love to see the children, as well as adults, transform their smiles and faces into the best they can be. It’s a joy to see their confidence soar as they see the improvements take place! We are truly a family at Ripley Orthodontics.  My team members are the absolute best, and Dr. Ripley & Dr. Vaughn are such caring and generous people. We really have a lot of fun here!

My husband, Greg, and I have three sons. Matthew and Joseph have graduated from Indiana University and are living in Chicago. Jordan is currently a student at I.U. I enjoy volunteering at an elementary school on Fridays, interior design, and traveling, especially to Chicago.

 

Clinical Staff

Our dynamic and caring clinical team works closely with each patient. Our clinical professionals have an average of 12 years of experience each, yet they bring amazing energy and enthusiasm for their profession every day.

They help make each appointment as quick, effective and comfortable as possible. The staff is dedicated to providing extraordinary personal service with compassion and consideration of each patient’s individual needs. The clinical staff helps Dr. Ripley & Dr. Vaughn keep the patients and parents well informed at each visit.

Trish

Clinical Assistant/Treatment Coordinator

I have worked for Dr. Ripley since receiving my Dental Assisting Certificate over 15 years ago. I love being around people, and we have such great families to work with at Ripley Orthodontics. At each appointment, I get to know our patients a little better. By the end of treatment, I feel I have made a friend for life. I love all my fellow team members and we work together so well. I feel like they are my second family.

My husband, Steve, and I had our first child in the summer of 2014. I had a baby girl, Nadia Elise, and she is precious. My two dogs, Maya and Stella, are coping with the new family dynamics. In my free time, I like to shop, play tennis, and hang out with friends and family.

I am originally from Fort Wayne where I started my orthodontic career that now spans over 28 years. I joined Ripley Orthodontics when I moved to Indianapolis in 2000. I love working with Dr. Ripley & Dr. Vaughn because of their quality work and the caring attitude they have for patients. I appreciate developing friendships with our patients as we work together to achieve a beautiful smile for them. We have a great team here and it makes it extra special.

I live in the Greenwood/Center Grove area with my husband, Tim. We have twin girls, Ashley and Allison, and a son, Jake. When I’m not busy with my family, I like working out and climbing mountains in our national parks.

I graduated from Chatard High School and attended IUPUI. I have been part of the Ripley Orthodontic clinical team since 2010. My favorite part of my job has been building relationships with the patients, and then seeing their amazing smiles at the end of treatment. It is so satisfying to take part in the beautiful transformations that take place with orthodontics.

I enjoy spending my free time with family and friends along with staying fit by working out at the gym.

I work in the lab where the retainers and other appliances are made, and have worked for Dr. Ripley for over 12 years.

We have high standards at Ripley Orthodontics, and our in-house lab helps us control the results we deliver. I love working with such a cohesive team with everyone helping each other out.
