Amanda Maize, DMD
My name is Amanda Maize, and I am honored to introduce myself to you and the practice. As you are now aware, I will be following in Dr. Jack's footsteps as he transitions to another path in his professional career. I am beyond blessed to have met Dr. Jack a few years ago and humbled to be able to continue his legacy by treating his patients moving forward.
I originally hail from southeastern Wisconsin (Go Pack!), growing up in a farming community about an hour west of Milwaukee. After high school, I made my way south to attend Purdue University. My undergraduate degree was in Neurobiology & Physiology. I also obtained my Masters degree in Biology from Purdue before attending dental school. Valuing a small, hands-on school, I practiced for a short while in North Carolina until my husband and I decided to finally move back to the Midwest. We have been living/working in the Northern Indianapolis Carmel area ever since. My husband works in corporate finance ( I will joke that I have no idea what he does!) and loves his job here in Indy. We welcomed our daughter Lilian last fall and are so proud to be her parents. She is a sweet little girl who loves to socialize, eat and absolutely detests brushing her teeth (ha, ironic!). Nick and I are proud to have made this area our home personally and professionally.
Growing up in the country in Wisconsin taught me a lot about life and people. My dad is a self-employed business owner who has an outstanding professional legacy in our area building barns for those in the immediate area and beyond. His work ethic, loyalty to his customers/friends and dedication to his family are the foothold in everything that I do. My mother is a recently retired nurse. She has worked at the V.A. for her entire career, never ceasing her commitment to her veterans. I admire her service to our country's best over the years and hope to have a profound impact on my patients in the years to come. My parents are the reason I am here and the calling I have to serve others stems from them. I share this act of service with you all as we get to know each other.
Dentistry is such a rewarding profession because my staff and I get to treat/prevent disease, relieve pain, educate on oral health, maintain smiles and improve self-esteem. The absolutely most rewarding part of my job is getting to meet new people each day. Don't get me wrong, I love working with my hands, but I find the relationships I get to be involved with professionally is the best part of my work day. As I get to know you and your families, I will cherish that bond just as Dr. Jack has over the years. Thank you for welcoming me to the practice, I am excited to meet each and every one of you!
