Meet The Staff
Surgical Assistant/Office Manager
I have been in the dental field since 2002. I enjoy working in oral surgery because of the variety I see everyday. I look forward to meeting new patients and providing their care. Dr. Ruckman treats his patients with the up-most care and always goes above and beyond to make sure they are taken care of. I enjoy organizing office operations to ensure effectiveness and feel very blessed to be apart of his team. I am happy to make our team a family. I’m married and have 3 children. In my spare time, I enjoy watching sports and spending time with family and friends.
I am very excited about being a part of Dr. Ruckman’s team, where everyone’s main focus is exceptional patient care. My twenty five years working in the medical field on the business side has been challenging and rewarding, working with insurance companies to obtain maximum benefits for patient care. I have recently graduated from Indiana Tech with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management. I reside in New Haven with my son, Jacob, and am originally from Kentucky, and therefore, an avid UK basketball fan.
I have worked in oral surgery since 1999. I truly love what I do. It is my goal to treat every patient as if they are part of my family. Working in oral surgery gives you a chance to see so many different things which makes for a great mix up to the day. I am so honored to be a part of this team at Ruckman Oral Surgery. We all work very well together. It is truly a family dynamic! I married the love of my life in 2013. We have 2 kids, JJ and Natalie which keep us very busy.
Jordan is relatively new to Oral Surgery, as he attended Indiana-Purdue University of Fort Wayne Dental Assisting Program and graduated in 2017. Upon graduation, he has consistently been passionate about oral surgery. Jordan is a Certified Dental Assistant, DANB Certified, member of ADAA, has his license in Radiology and is CPR certified. He loves what he does, especially meeting new patients and taking care of them for a better future with their oral health. He resides in Auburn, In with his Fiance Andrew and their dog Norman. He enjoys his free time being outside on the lake with family and friends.
I love being part of the Ruckman Oral Surgery team. I am new to the dental field but have worked in medical insurance billing and processing for 11 years prior to joining Dr. Ruckman’s office. Being at the front desk, I get to greet and interact with all our patients upon check-in. I grew up in Fort Wayne, In and Boise, ID. My husband and I have been together since we were teenagers and live in Fort Wayne. We enjoy spending time at the lake, camping, concerts and cooking.
Scheduling Coordinator/Treatment Coordinator
I really enjoy being part of Dr. Ruckman’s team. Being in the front office allows me to meet and interact with each of the patients on a daily basis. My experience as an office coordinator has allowed me to understand that a patient’s treatment starts with the initial phone call or first impression. It’s my goal to make that a seamless and enjoyable part of the overall care plan. I grew up in North Webster, Indiana and graduated from Purdue University…however I am now a big Michigan fan! I currently live in Leo with my husband and 3 children. I enjoy shopping, and spending time with my family and friends.
