It is a pleasure to work at Altschul Orthodontics and be part of a great team of professionals. Dr. Altschul gave my youngest daughter a beautiful smile and he does the same for all of our patients. My goal as the Appointment Coordinator is to help schedule patients’ appointments at convenient times. I understand how busy our patients are!
My husband Jim and I are “empty nesters.” We have raised six children and enjoy spending time with our six grandchildren.
I really love being part of the Altschul Orthodontics team. Seeing the beautiful smiles of our patients each day makes me smile as well! I handle billing statements, filing and tracking insurance claims, and posting production and payments. I also help with answering phones and scheduling appointments.
My husband and I live in Montgomery County. Together we have five grown children and several fur babies. I enjoy fishing, hunting and photography, and anything else that gets me out in nature.
I work behind the scenes at Altschul Orthodontics, so I don’t get to see many of our patients at the office. But when I see our patients out in the community, I do get to hear their compliments about our practice, Dr. Altschul and our team, and the wonderful smiles we create!
I have the honor to delivering care packages to our Brownsburg Partners: schools, dentists, and patients. It’s a lot of fun to bring a smile to people. I order supplies, talk with vendors, and make sure the staff is taken care of so they can concentrate on what’s important: our patients’ happiness and their smiles.
Dr. Altschul and I have been married since 2000. We have five wonderful daughters. We recently adopted a gerbil, but don’t worry, the girls made sure it is a female, so their Dad would remain King of the House! I love to go swing dancing with Aaron, as well as trying new ethnic restaurants; Ethiopian food is my current favorite. I’m active in the Mom’s Group at St. Malachy, and Aaron and I lead numerous Financial Peace University classes there.
I like watching our patients move through treatment and seeing the joy on their faces when they see their finished smile. They can’t stop looking in the mirror, grinning and laughing, and I am smiling right along with them. They’re going to love that smile for the rest of their life! I assist Dr. Altschul during appointments, and take radiographs, impressions, and pictures. I also place, tie, and untie archwires. I handle some of our office ordering and external marketing tasks, too. And I work in the lab making retainers and sending out models for appliance fabrication.
When I’m not working, I love time with my family and friends. We enjoy games, crafts, camping, canoe trips, and watching movies. I have a cat, Kershaw, who’s named after a Dodgers pitcher.
I enjoy watching everyone’s smile change and the confidence they gain throughout their orthodontic treatment. You will see me placing and removing archwires, and I assist Dr. Altschul during appointments. I also take radiographs, impressions, and pictures. I also help with making retainers, and pouring/trimming models in the lab.
When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my sisters and nephews. I enjoy traveling, swimming, fishing, and overall just spending quality time with close family and friends.
Having worked in orthodontics for over 30 years, I have a natural enthusiasm for this field. I enjoy the process from beginning to end! When I moved back home to Indiana after 30 years in Michigan, I was thrilled to join such a hard-working team of professionals at Dr. Altschul's office. We are dedicated to serving our patients and the community, and show a special compassion toward our patients. We operate in a fun, light-hearted manner. I am in charge of keeping all the instruments and equipment sterilized and disinfected. When working in the lab, I pour and trim our plaster models. I also fabricate retainers and manage the shipping and receiving of orthodontic appliances. You will also find me assisting the clinical staff with x-rays and impressions.
I have been married to Steve for over 36 years. We have a son and daughter, and also our Golden retriever, Layla. In my spare time I enjoy gardening, fitness, and outdoor activities like hiking and traveling. Most of all, I love to spend time with family and friends.
