We encourage you to take advantage of our staff’s knowledge, kindness, and patience – your questions are important to us and so is your comfort.
Dawn Garrett, Office Manager
I am originally from Illinois and have had over 30 years experience in many aspects of the Dental Field, including the completion of the Expanded Dental Assisting program. I met Dr. Marckese-Braun while she was working as an associate in Lafayette, Indiana. I was so honored and ecstatic when she asked me to help her dream of DentalSpa come to life. It hard to believe it was in November of 2004 when we first opened our doors and Dr. Marckese-Braun’s vision came true. My position as Office Manager has been such a pleasure… from establishing a great one on one personal relationship with our patients, to working with an incredible staff who believes in teamwork, and having an amazing, high energy, positive doctor who provides the highest quality care and comfort for her patients. I am so thrilled to be part of the DentalSpa team.
Maureen Jordan (Mo), Dental Hygienist
I graduated from Indiana University-South Bend with a degree in Dental Hygiene in 1997. So, I have been cleaning teeth for a long time, but love every minute of it!! I have been with Dental Spa since the day one (11 years!) and I look forward to catching up with my patients that I have formed relationships with every 6 months. My husband and I have been married 10 years and have two marvelous children, Maeve (6 ) and Finn (5). We live in the Butler-Tarkington Neighborhood and enjoy all the benefits of living in the city. We enjoy running and biking downtown and along the canal to Broad Ripple. We belong to Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, where Maeve is currently in 1st grade. Finn is in his “Red Shirt” year at IPS #91, but will join his sister next year at IHM in Kindergarten again! I love the family that I have formed here at DentalSpa and always have fun at work. I look forward to meeting you and know that you will also enjoy your visit with us. We make every patient feel relaxed, at home, and part of our DentalSpa FAMILY!
Kasey Dickerson, Dental Hygienist
I received my license from IU School of Dentistry in 2008 and have been loving my job since. I take pride in my work and my goal is to be thorough and pain free. I love building a friendship with my patients. My patients here at DentalSpa are amazing!
I come from a very small town. After getting married in September 2011, I moved to the “big city.” I joined the DentalSpa family in July 2012. I work part-time as a hygienist, but full time as a mom. I am married with 2 young boys who are full of energy and a fur monster who adds to it all. They bring joy to my life! I love talking about them to anyone who will listen!. I also enjoy being creative and I love to laugh. I thank the DentalSpa girls for taking me in, not only as a team member, but as a family member. I love being a DentalSpa Diva!
Michele Woodward, Expanded Duty Dental Assistant
I have been married for 30 years to my best friend and wonderful husband Doug. We look forward to spending time together riding our motorcycles for fun or to help raise money for a worthy cause. One of the many events we enjoy participating in each year is the Riley’s Children’s Hospital Miracle Ride. I graduated from Indiana Vocational Technical College in 1985 as a Certified Dental Assistant and received my Expanded Functions Certificate from IUPUI in 2002. When Dr. Marckese-Braun asked me to help her start and be part of DentalSpa in 2004, I was so excited to have the opportunity to work in a non-stereotype dental office. I truly appreciate working with Dr. Marckese-Braun because she has incorporated excellent dental care with a touch of relaxation. Her dedication to total family care goes above and beyond that of the typical dental office. Being a part of that is what makes my job so rewarding.
Amanda Witt, Expanded Duty Dental Assistant
With great enthusiasm, I joined the Dental Spa team in January of 2015! The ladies at DentalSpa, along with our patients, have welcomed me with open arms. I feel blessed to work in such a beautiful environment. I attended the Indiana University School of Dentistry and received my certification in 1999. Later, I went back to school and received a bachelor degree in Communication Studies in 2006. With previous experience in dental sales, one of my greatest contribution to the office is my extensive product knowledge. I enjoy playing tennis, reading, and hanging out with my friends.
Catie Kettery, Insurance Specialist/Massage Therapist
Family is very important to me, which is a big reason I love this team here at Dental Spa. Everyone here including Dr. Amy, the staff, and patients are all so warm and friendly… I’m happy to say this is my home away from home! I am a licensed massage therapist and first joined the Dental Spa team in August 2011 doing massages for patients and helping at the front desk. Since then I have taken over all of the Insurance duties and am loving it! Being able to gather information on each patient’s dental policy and answer any questions is a great fit for me. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy helping with the occasional massage and interacting with our awesome patients! My husband Mike and I enjoy spending time with our family, I am a proud Mother of four gorgeous children! Danielle is currently 20 years old, Aidrey is 18, Carly 15, and my youngest Colton is 4. Life is good!!
Angela Walton, Massage Therapist/New Patient Concierge
I graduated as a Medical Assistant in 2006 and as a Licensed Massage Therapist in 2009. I love being a Massage Therapist and aiding in client’s relaxation, stress-relief, as well as their general health. I am a proud mother of two children, Royce and Sofia. I love spending time with them and watching them grow. I was very blessed when I was asked to become part of the DentalSpa team. I love being a part of this wonderful concept and being an instrumental part of not only relieving our patient’s anxiety, but also pampering them with massage! (And I am pretty sure I am all of our patient’s favorite person at the office.
