Doctor and Team


Amy

Amy

Orthodontic Assistant

I have worked in dentistry for fourteen years and recently started orthodontics here, and it has been an honor to work with a team that is truly committed to providing its very best care for our patients. It is incredible to see the increase in self confidence that patients receive from completing treatment, knowing that I have had the privilege to be a part of this wonderful process.

I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children, bike riding, reading, cooking new recipes, and traveling!

 

Barb

Barbara

Office Manager

I am responsible for the day-to-day management and operations of the front office. Having worked at our office since 1980, I feel our patients and their parents have become more like family members rather than clients. I really enjoy interacting with all our unique and wonderful patients. If you add up the numbers, our team members have worked together for a combined 124 years; we have really become more like a family. It’s no wonder why I love coming here every day!

I have been married for more than 35 years and have two married adult children and three grandsons. Traveling, gardening, and needlework are a few of my favorite activities. I enjoy living every day to its fullest!

 

Charity

Charity

Orthodontic Assistant

My more than 30 years of experience in dentistry come in handy when putting even the most anxious patient at ease. I’m here to help our patients achieve their desired smile and improve their confidence, from the first appointment to the very last. The best part is always when they get their braces removed! I’m also in charge of our Facebook page and social media posts. I appreciate Dr. Ryckman’s conservative approach to treatment and the trust he builds with his patients. He makes me proud to be a part of the Ryckman Orthodontics team!

I have been married to Rob since 1986 and have two sons and three cats. I love cooking and baking, especially a new or original recipe. I also like to express my creativity by drawing, painting, and pursuing DIY projects. Most days, you can find me spending time with my husband and boys.

 

Kathy

Kathy

Orthodontic Assistant

Since starting at this practice in 1986, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting to know our patients and their families, and watching their smiles change as they go through their treatment. I assist Dr. Ryckman with treatment, take X-rays and photos, and coordinate Invisalign® treatment. More importantly, I meet new patients, and establish relationships with them and their families. Dr. Ryckman is an outstanding orthodontist. He is honest, kind, and cares about his patients and their families. It’s so rewarding to work as a team and give our patients beautiful, healthy smiles.

I have been married for 35 years to Mike. We have two grown children, Marc and Chris, and four cats. I enjoy gardening and cooking, and stay active by hiking and walking.

 

Karen

Karen

Certified Orthodontic Assistant

I began working in the orthodontic field in 2003 and joined Ryckman Orthodontics in 2018. I assist at chairside, work in our lab, and take X-rays. Our team is simply the best around! We work so well together, all working toward the goal of creating beautiful smiles. We’re so close that we’re like family!

I have two boys, Wesley and Logan, and love spending time with my family. In my free time, I like making jewelry, painting, crafting, traveling, being outdoors, and volunteering at church activities.

 

Megan

Megan

Patient Coordinator

I started with Ryckman Orthodontics in March of 2019 after spending the previous eight years in the Air Force as a dental assistant. While this is my first experience in an orthodontics practice, I am excited to learn more. I currently work at the front desk as a patient coordinator scheduling appointments, answering phone calls, and working on patient financials. I enjoy working at this practice, where you tend to bond with every patient. It is truly a family environment! I love seeing what a difference we can make in patients’ smiles and the fun that we have with them along the way.

I have been married since July of 2011 to my husband Billy. We have two kiddos who keep me on my toes all of the time, along with our two dogs. As a family, we enjoy going outdoors and playing, as well as watching movies together. In my personal time, I enjoy some quiet time and relaxation!

 

Shelby

Shelby

Patient Coordinator

I joined this practice in March of 2019 and have two years of previous front office experience in general dentistry. I handle just about everything from insurance and patient financials to answering the phones and scheduling appointments. I have enjoyed my transition into orthodontics and am very thankful for this great team of workers! You will find that everyone here is kind, caring, and become like family over time. I look forward to building wonderful relationships with each of our patients, and helping them achieve their perfect smile.

I have been married since 2016 to my husband Ryan. We have two snuggly dogs (Eevie and Nilo) that keep me busy. We enjoy hiking and walking as a family. In my personal time you can find me snuggled up with the dogs reading a new book series!
