As an orthodontist, I create beautiful smiles, but more importantly, I have the opportunity to help patients establish positive self-image and improve self-confidence. Each day I get to interact with many people who are beautiful, both inside and out.
My job allows me to bring positive changes to the lives of those around me. I love talking with our patients and hearing about their accomplishments and fun activities. I love to encourage my patients and see their self-confidence grow as their smiles improve. A healthy, beautiful smile is a gift for a lifetime.
Education and Continuing Education
It has been my pleasure to practice orthodontics for over 20 years. I became interested in this profession after experiencing the excitement of having my own teeth straightened. I enjoyed my orthodontic journey and knew from the eighth grade that I wanted to be an orthodontist.
My undergraduate education was completed at Bowling Green State University in Ohio where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in chemistry in 1988. I worked as a chemist for several years after college but yearned for contact with the people in my community. I knew that the healthcare setting was where I belonged. I graduated from Indiana University School of Dentistry with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1995. In 1997, I completed my Master of Science in Orthodontics.
My team and I participate in continuing education to learn about and understand new technology and current research in the orthodontic field. This allows us to provide the best orthodontic treatment in the most efficient manner. Our team’s continuing education leads to the WOW customer service that is provided from a team that works together and functions as One.

Family and Community
I was married to my husband Brian in October 1989. He graduated from Kettering University with an Industrial engineering degree and Indiana University-Indianapolis with a law degree. He works in the aerospace industry currently.
I also have two amazing sons: Bryson and Brennan. Both attend the University of Dayton. Now that they are gone, Brian and I are figuring out how to be "empty nesters".
Finally, we have two adopted pets, our dog Meg and cat Fiasco. Meg loves to run with us and is quite a squirrel hunter, while Fiasco is an indoor cat and loves to lay in the sun.
Brian and I enjoy traveling, most outdoor activities like running, walking our dog, biking, golfing, or riding our motorcycles. We also enjoy food, whether it’s trying new local restaurants or cooking at home. Personally, I enjoy being outdoors and active. I usually run at least one half marathon each year. I also like to plant flowers around our house for a more relaxing activity.
I support my community because the people from this community lead to the success of Wittler Orthodontics. I feel great when I can help someone or support an important mission. Programs that support the youth of our community and their education as well as those that serve the less fortunate are where I devote my volunteer time. I have been involved in the Westfield Chamber of Commerce to promote the growth and vibrancy of this community. I serve on the Westfield Education Development Foundation Board to raise money to support Westfield teachers with grant money and award seniors with scholarship money for college. I also sponsor the Westfield Relay for Life and several Downtown Westfield Association activities.
