Kelly – Dental Assistant
Born and raised in Evansville as a railroader’s daughter, Kelly is blessed to have two children and three grandchildren. Having a phobia of visiting the dentist as a child created the desire to combat her fear and work in the dental profession. Understanding others’ feelings of this fear has made her a better assistant. She enjoys helping others to have a healthy smile and promoting good dental care to keep their teeth. Kelly loves to have fun at work but on her days away from the office she can be found motorcycle riding, boating on the Ohio River, reading, tanning, gardening, or cooking. She has also been married to her fun, loving husband since 1984. Giving 100% in everything she does is a great quality from working to playing to just having fun.
Peggy – Dental Assistant
Born in Ohio, Peggy was raised in Newburgh since she was a little girl. Peggy married her high school sweetheart and has two wonderful kids. She is proud of her son achieving a doctorate in pharmacy and her daughter achieving a doctorate in physical therapy. Comforting patients who are nervous or anxious about dentistry is her favorite part about assisting. If a patient comes through the door and can leave saying “That was really easy,” Peggy knows she has done her job. Swimming, dancing, taking walks with her husband, and visiting her kids are her fun hobbies. Enjoying working for Dr. Ogle since 1994, she could not imagine being anywhere else.
