Meet the Team


Financial Coordinator, Reception, and Scheduling

Hello and welcome to Ballrick Orthodontics! I’m glad you’re thinking about orthodontic care and look forward to guiding you through your initial consult. We’ll talk about your treatment plan, review all options, and discuss financials, insurance, and payment plans. I’ll answer all of your questions, too, so you can make an informed decision about treatment. I love that Dr. Ballrick wants our patients to feel relaxed, fully informed, and happy about their treatment. We will all work together to achieve that!

My husband John and I have been married for almost 40 years. We have three sons, one daughter-in-law, and two beautiful grandchildren. John and I enjoy spending time with our family and friends, vacationing to the beaches down south, and traveling to Columbus to be with our grandkids.


Reception and Scheduling

Welcome to Ballrick Orthodontics! I’m Christine and I’m looking forward to getting to know you. You might hear my voice when you contact us to schedule a visit and you’ll certainly meet me when you arrive at the office. I’ll greet and check you in, update your records, accept your payments, and help schedule future appointments. I love working with a compassionate doctor and team who create beautiful smiles!

Outside of office, I enjoy time with my husband of more than 15 years and our two active boys. I like shopping, home renovating, traveling, and watching my sons play ball. I’m also an active supporter of St. Jude and Make-a-Wish in memory of my daughter.


Clinical Coordinator and Orthodontic Assistant

I learn something new every day from Dr. Ballrick. He is not only fun to work for, but also so passionate about what he does! I attended medical assisting school but found a love for orthodontics as my first job in the medical field. As a part of Dr. Ballrick’s team since 2013, I’ve loved building relationships with patients and their parents and, of course, seeing their excitement when getting their braces on and especially off! Our staff is so amazing! We have awesome teamwork; we truly enjoy each other and have a lot of fun together. When it is fun, it doesn’t feel like work at all!

I was married fall 2015 on my birthday! We just got two kittens, Inka and Sedona. I’m a foodie who loves to hike and travel especially out west, preferably Arizona. When I’m in town, I enjoy spending time with my family, photography, yoga, and going to the movies.


Orthodontic Assistant

Hi, I am Erin! I graduated from Polaris Career Center for Dental Assisting and I started at Ballrick Orthodontics in 2014. Our office is a very fun and upbeat place which is why I enjoy working here so much! My favorite part of my job is watching the patients grow and find confidence with their new smiles.

In my free time I enjoy doing crafts, going to concerts, or spending time in my yard with my pets Jack and Wilber.


Orthodontic Assistant

Hi, I’m Rachel and I’m looking forward to getting to know you! As an orthodontic assistant, I’ll meet you early in the treatment process when I take your diagnostic records, including X-rays, photos, and digital scans. Dr. Ballrick uses these when he creates your unique treatment plan. I also take the digital scans for your debond appointment, so your retainer is ready when the braces come off! I love working with people that feel like family to me: we all care about our patients and are happiest when we see how pleased people are with their new smiles!

I share my life with Misty, a Giant Schnauzer who’s a certified therapy dog. In my free time, I love taking Misty to nursing homes to visit the residents and going on hikes with her. I also love seeing movies and going to Cavs and Indians games.


Orthodontic Assistant

Welcome to Ballrick Orthodontics! I’m Macy and I look forward to seeing your confidence grow as you achieve a great smile! We’ll meet in the clinic, where I assist Dr. Ballrick with a variety of procedures and patient care. I also help my teammates with various tasks around the office and am always happy to answer your questions and chat a bit. We have a really fun, energetic office and I know you’re going to love it here – almost as much as you’re going to love your new smile!

I spend much of my free time with my beautiful daughter, Kendall. We love to go hiking and bike riding together. I’m the youngest of three children and come from a very close family, so time with them is important to me.
