Leadership Team

Ladd Dental's Leadership Team

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
