Leadership Team

Welcome to Ladd Dental Group. Central Indiana's premier dental group.
Dr. John

Dr. John L. – Chairman

Dr. Ladd was born at St. Joe Hospital and raised in Miami County, IN. John enjoys reading, fishing, & going to the gym. He is married to his wife Tisa who is also a dentist. Together they have four children, two sons and two daughters, both of who now work for Ladd Dental Group. What Dr. Ladd loves most about dentistry is visiting with the patients and seeing a beautiful end result. Dr. Ladd started Ladd Dental Group in 1978 in Kokomo, Indiana, and he has focused on expanding dental care to areas of need ever since. He believes that everyone is unique and deserves the best care he can provide. Dr. Ladd is a member of the IDA and the ADA. He attended IU Bloomington & IUK before graduating from the Indiana University School of Dentistry.

Mary L. – CEO

Mary was born and raised in Russiaville, IN. She grew up with two brothers and a sister. Mary graduated from Indiana University Maurer School of Law in 2014, and she is a member of the Indiana Bar Association.  Being the daughter of Dr. John Ladd, Mary grew up around dentistry. Being indoctrinated in the dental field from an early age, combined with her legal background, make for a tremendous skill set to lead Ladd Dental Group forward. She loves how a new smile can transform someone’s perspective and confidence. Mary started at Ladd in 2014 and she understands that without our patients, we would not exist! It is her mission to provide them with the best experience and care we possibly can.  Along with everything outdoors, Mary enjoys running, reading, traveling, cooking, planning surprises and starting new traditions!  You may contact her at

Monica N. – Finance Director

Monica was born and raised in Kokomo, IN. She has two boys Aidin and Cade.

Monica likes to see smiles restored and the joy it brings to both patients and staff. She enjoys spending time with her family, as well as, hiking, biking, bowing and reading. Monica has been with Ladd Dental Group for over ten years, and is an extremely valueable member to the Ladd Dental family.

Beau Badeaux- HR Director
Reginald Thomas "Beau" Badeaux IV was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, before moving to Indianapolis as a child. But that does not make Beau any less of a Hoosier: he attended Indiana University for both his undergraduate and graduate education, first earning his Bachelor of Science in Public Affairs from the Indiana University School of Environmental and Public Affairs in 2010, then continuing his studies at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, where he earned his Juris Doctor degree in 2013. Beau is a licensed attorney and has been admitted to practice before all Indiana Courts, and is a member of the Indiana State Bar Association and the Indianapolis Bar Association. He is very excited to be in the dental field because he will be able to use his human and legal expertise to add value to both our Ladd Dental team members and patients!
Outside of work, Beau enjoys spending time with his wife, Emmaleigh, and their two dogs. They love to get outside to see the sights and stretch their legs, but are just as content to curl up at home with a good book or their backlog of shows.
 We are extremely fortunate to add Beau to our growing Ladd family, and we are exciting to welcome him to the Kokomo, Greentown, Peru, Wabash, and surrounding communities! You may contact him at

Jennifer A. – Clinical Director

As Clinical Director I facilitate & keep records for OSHA compliance, infection control, medication disposal, radiology inspection, certification, & monitoring for all practices.  I work with Dr. Ladd creating and implementing clinical policies & procedures. I assist HR with interviewing, orientation, & reviews for clinical staff.  I work with the Inventory coordinator, and Clinical Education Administrator to ensure proper staff training, and cost analysis of supplies. I enjoy spending time with my children, going to their activities, motorcycle riding with my husband, family vacations traveling to new places, & snorkeling. I love a variety of music… pop, hip hop, rock, alternative, & 70’s. Jen has been with Ladd Dental for over ten years and is a hugely valued member of our Ladd family! You may contact her at
