My name is Ashley and I joined the Dentistry on 116 team in May 2008. My favorite part of being one of Dr. Helton's dental hygienists is the education and exceptional technology she provides us to help take care of our patients. The digital camera is my favorite piece of technology I use every day. The detailed pictures I take allow you to see exactly what we see in your mouth! I enjoy meeting new people and having the opportunity to maintain healthy, clean smiles. I strive to be personable and gentle to make visits as easy and comfortable as possible! If you have ever dreamed about lying in bed and having a TV on your ceiling...then you will LOVE our dental office! During appointments, you can enjoy DIRECTV channels. I love working with Dr. Helton. She makes everybody who is around her feel welcome. I grew up in the country and am the youngest of four children. My husband, Derick, is wonderful, and I am truly blessed to have three amazing children, Kyler, Jaxstin, and Arianna. In my free time, I love visiting with family and friends, spending time outdoors, volunteering at our church, and playing sports.

Hi I'm Alana and I am excited to have joined the Dentistry on 116 team in January of 2015. Besides the friendly, upbeat environment of the office, my favorite part of working for Dr. Helton is all the latest technology we have to help treat and educate our patients. Not only can we take x-rays and different kinds of photos of our patients' teeth, but we can then put all of those up on the TV screen for them to see as well! This helps us monitor changing areas in the mouth, explain the necessity for treatment and even show before and after photos. In 2009, I am a proud mom of my young son, Colton and we live on Indy's southwest side with our Great Dane, Sadie, and Dachshund, Zoe. In my free time I enjoy gardening, hiking and baking.

My favorite thing about being able to come to work everyday is helping people of all ages feel comfortable and confident with their smiles and dental health. I truly love this practice and the “family” that comes along with it. We work as a team, have a state of the art facility, and go above and beyond the norm to provide a smile walking out of the door.

Hi! My name is Stephanie and I have been a part of the Dentistry on 116 family since September 2019. As your dental hygienist, I want to know how you're feeling and WHY! Are you uncomfortable? Let's chat about and I will do everything in my power to make you comfortable. Are you having a hard day? I'm here to listen! Are you frustrated with your dental health? I'd love to come up with a game plan, along with Dr Helton, to make you happy and confident about your smile. Patients are my priority, and dentally related or not, you as my patient as a whole, matters to me. My favorite part of the job is meeting our amazing patients and learning all about them and their families. The relationships formed are very special to me and keep me looking forward to my time with our patients. I also love to educate my younger patients on their oral health and how to effectively take care of their mouths so they have lifelong health and a beautiful smile they want to show off all the time. Dr Helton is great!! She's a wonderful dentist and does awesome dental work, but even better is she's such a happy and positive person to be around! It's so contagious and everyone feels her passion for her job and the office. I've been married to my husband, Mark for 11 years. We have 3 beautiful boys, Max, 9, Cam, 5, and Ty, 2. We also have 3 dogs, Rex, Nike and Oreo, and a cat, Sprinkles! It's a busy, loud house! I love to stay active working out, running, or biking with my family.
