Our Office Staff

Paige Kendall
Office Manager/Expanded Functions Dental Assistant

I started working for Dr. Ortman in 2011 as a front desk receptionist. I graduated from Ivy Tech’s dental assisting program in 2010, and received my expanded function certificate in 2012. I take care of tasks like: registering new patients according to established office protocols, organizing referrals to other medical specialists, and maintaining and managing patient records in compliance with privacy and security regulations. Working as a dental assistant, I get to see the smiles the doctors create and help them in creating the perfect smile for the patient. I also coordinate patient appointments, accounts and insurance, and help the doctors in patient care, assisting with procedures and treatment plans, and answering any questions a patient might have.

My husband, Nick, and I have been married since 2012. We have two very active girls, Jade and Alyza. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and rooting for my favorite sports teams. Go Bears, Cubs, and Boilermakers! We all enjoy tailgating at Purdue in the fall. We are a very close and active family balancing the girls’ sports and school activities. I also enjoy painting, amusement parks, and crafting.


I have been a part of the team here for six months, and it has been a joy to get to know our patients. I enjoy greeting every patient, making them feel comfortable and welcoming them as part of the Ortman Family Dentistry family.

Outside of the office, I enjoy traveling, gardening and spending time with my wonderful family. My husband and I have two children and one grandchild.

Our Hygienists

Licensed Dental Hygienist

I have been a licensed dental hygienist since 2007 and began working for Dr. Greg Ortman in 2010. I strive to provide the best dental care for our patients while educating them on the importance of good oral health.

My husband and I have two wonderful daughters, and we love spending time together. We love going on walks and playing at the park.

Licensed Dental Hygienist

I have been a licensed dental hygienist since 2000 and have been working for Dr. Greg Ortman since 2004. I enjoy educating our patients on the importance of oral hygiene and how to maintain it. Before becoming a hygienist, I worked as a dental assistant, assisting the doctors with procedures. The best part of my job is seeing patients walk out of the office with a smile.

I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with my husband, two children, and our dog. We enjoy being together as much as possible.

Licensed Dental Hygienist

A 2015 graduate of the IU School of Dentistry in Indianapolis, I began working for the practice right out of school and have been here ever since. I love my job! I especially like making sure patients have a great experience and enjoy coming to the dentist.

I am originally from Rensselaer and now live in West Lafayette with my husband, Ben. I enjoy being involved at my church, spending time with my husband and family, crafting, and doing outdoor activities.

Licensed Dental Hygienist

I joined the Ortman Family Dentistry team in 2016 and have practiced as a dental hygienist for over 10 years, from Indianapolis to Australia! I am excited to set some roots down in Lafayette and have really enjoyed getting to know the Greater Lafayette community.

One of my favorite aspects of dentistry is empowering patients to improve and maintain their oral health, and I believe this is achieved as a team through open communication and feeling comfortable both at home and in the dental office.

Besides dentistry, I am a certified yoga teacher and feel that mindfulness and ease are also useful as a dental hygienist. In my free time, I enjoy gardening, spending time with my family and two pups, and being out in nature.

Our Assistants

Expanded Functions Dental Assistant

I love spending time with our patients, talking with them about oral health, and presenting the information they need to take care of their smile. I have been working with Dr. Ortman since 1998. I provide assistance to Dr. Greg Ortman and Christopher Holcomb as they care for our patients, sitting chairside making sure they are comfortable. I place fillings and temporary crowns, perform lab work, sterilize equipment and treatment areas, oversee our inventory, and order supplies, too. When needed, I also fill in at the front desk.

As for my personal life, I have two daughters and seven wonderful grandchildren. My husband and I love Tennessee, and I’m very passionate about animals.

Expanded Functions Dental Assistant

Jessie has worked at Ortman Family Dentistry since February 2023. She graduated from Ivy Tech Kokomo in 2020 with certification and licenses in caries prevention, expanded functions, coronal polishing and radiography. She passed her general chairside exam in 2021 to become a certified dental assistant. Jessie loves making people feel as comfortable and welcome as possible, helping them improve their oral health and making them more confident in their smile. She is understanding and will help educate patients on procedures to the best of her abilities.

Jessie has been married to her husband, James, for nine years and she has two boys aged 13 and 7. Outside of work, she enjoys going to concerts, antique shopping and spending time with friends and family. She is also a self-described crazy plant lady.

She has also achieved her radiology license, nitrous oxide administration and monitoring certificate, coronal polishing and fluoride application certificate, sealant placement certificate and CPR certification. Kylie joined our team in April 2024, and she enjoys being part of a practice that helps her grow and encourages her to continuously learn more. She brings a great attitude to work with her each day, and works hard to help her patients feel safe and comfortable during their time in our office.

Kylie was born and raised in Lafayette and attended Harrison High school. She and her husband eloped in March 2023 in Estes Park, Colorado. They have three dogs, Ruger (a chihuahua and Jack Russel terrier mix), Django (a German Shepherd) and Blue (a bluetick beagle), and stay busy keeping them active and occupied.
