Sheila Moore, Hygienist
I have over 30 years of experience in the dentistry field. Currently, I hold two licenses: Dental Hygiene and Local Anesthetic, both obtained from the IU School of Dentistry. The highlight of my career has been getting to know and serve our patients with Mitchell’s Crew since 2006. I am married with two adult children, a beautiful daughter-in-law and three grandchildren. When I’m not spending time with them, you will find me training for sprint triathlons.
Lora Pope, Hygienist
I am a 29 year dental professional. I started my career as a dental assistant and graduated in 1995 as a dental hygienist. I have worked with Dr. Mitchell and Crew for a total of 10 years (1997-2005 when my husband’s job took us to Florida and rejoining Dr. Mitchell and Crew in 2016). I love meeting people and helping them stay healthy by educating them on good oral hygiene habits. Due to the great customer service and care our patients receive, they stay for years and many feel like family. I have been married for 28 years to my wonderful husband, David. We have three cats. In my free time I am active in church, love spending time with family and friends, and enjoy travel.
Megan Harmon, Hygienist
I’ve been working with Dr. Mitchell and his fabulous staff for two years, and I love it! When I am not treating our wonderful patients, I am at home with our four children: Molly, Jack, Reid, and Emily. I enjoy spending time with my family, watching movies, playing volleyball, and going to DISNEY. I look forward to seeing you at the office.
Cindy Rumple, Assistant
I have been with Mitchell’s Crew since 2003. I am fortunate to be cross-trained: I work at the front desk scheduling and greeting patients as well as a back-office assistant. My husband, Steve, is a fiber splicer for AT&T and our 25-year-old son Austin works at IU Hospital as an EMT tech and as a volunteer for the Clayton Fire Department. Zoe is our boxer-mix four-legged child. It is a pleasure to get to know our patients.
Judy Stephens, Front Office
I have had the pleasure of working at Dr. Mitchell’s Crew for the past 21 years. I was born in Gary, IN as one of seven children. I have been married to my husband Lance for 41 years, and we have raised three wonderful boys: Lance, Adam and Eric. We are now enjoying being grandparents to our grandson Christopher and have another baby on the way in November. I knew the day I started working at Dr. Mitchell’s that it was going to be long-term. The Crew is fantastic and we have become more like family than co-workers.
