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.
Desirea – Scheduling Coordinator
I have been working for Dr. Ortman since February 2018. I love being able to greet the patients with a welcoming smile and get them ready for their appointment. Making someone smile goes a long way in this field. My work involves answering phones, insurance filing, confirmations, preparing for patients’ appointments, treatment planning, and following up with patients to ensure all questions or concerns were answered.
When not at the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Josh, who I have been married to for six years, and our two boys, Eli and Easton. We love going on adventures, playing board games, and going out for ice cream.
RaChelle – Referral Coordinator
I started working for Dr. Ortman in July 2017 on Thursday evenings. I have been with Dr. Reef’s office since 2003 as the scheduling coordinator. I graduated from high school in 1989 and then attended a vocational school, where I worked as a receptionist as part of the program for a general dentist. My work involves coordinating appointments with our specialty offices, coordinating appointments from the letters we receive back from specialty offices, answering phones, and treatment planning.
I am originally from Kokomo, Indiana. I have been married for 15 years to my husband, Chuck. I have one son named Glenn that I absolutely adore. I work full-time at Periodontal Associates of Lafayette, which is a periodontal office. In my spare time, I enjoy going to the beach, shopping, being outdoors, hiking, and of course my stray cat that I named Mr. Big Paws.

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 as he cares 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.
