Abby Tharp

Hi. My name is Abby. I am the senior dental assistant and have been with Dr. Powers since 2010.  I am responsible for overseeing your care on the clinical side of our office.  I will also help you coordinate your treatment and find the easiest way for you to phase your treatment to fit your busy schedule.  One of the favorite parts about working for Dr. Powers is the awesome patients that we see!  I love being a part of making a positive impact on someone's life.  It is also rewarding to help make a scared patient's dental visit easier than they were expecting!  

When I am not working, I enjoy reading, going to church, watching sports (go IU!), and spending my time with my amazing husband and daughter!
