Meet the Staff


Office Manager / Treatment Coordinator

Hello there! As the new patient Treatment Coordinator and Office Manager, I keep very busy. I love working with our new patients and their families in understanding the orthodontic process and getting excited with them to start their orthodontic journey. I have worked for Dr. Luddington since 2000, and I love working in such a friendly and professional environment. My favorite part of my job is the smiles! It always makes my day when our patients get their braces off and just smile from ear to ear. I also enjoy their excitement when we schedule the date for them to get braces on because they are on their way to a beautiful new smile!

My husband Ralph and I have two married sons, one daughter, four granddaughters, and two grandsons!

Orthodontic Assistant

Hey there! My name is Arabelle. I was born and raised in the Philippines. I moved to Nevada and now living in Utah with my wonderful husband. I began working for Dr. Luddington on August 2017 and have loved it ever since. I love working with different patients daily. You can usually find me assisting Dr. Luddington with making adjustments on patients, starting their adventure to a great smile, and removing braces when they're finished. My favorite part is being able to provide a comfortable and welcoming environment for all those who enter our office. Trust me! Once you enter our office, you will become part of our orthodontic family.

Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I usually like to play board games and being outside to play basketball, tennis, volleyball, etc. Once in a while, I do get little competitive playing video games with my husband.

In my spaire time I love to crocet and always have 2, 3, or 12 projects going at one time.  I also love travel and am usually planning my next adventure.  My very favorite thing, though, is spoiling my nieces and nephews - "Favorite Aunt: is a title I wear with pride!
