Meet the Doctors

Dr. Moore

Dr. Moore grew up in Ossian,  Indiana. He attended Indiana University at Bloomington for his Bachelors of Science in Biology. He moved to Indianapolis where he graduated from Indiana University School of Dentistry in 1995.

Since then, Dr. Moore has practiced dentistry in Indiana. As a child, Dr. Moore spent his summers on the beautiful lakes surrounding Angola and fondness for the area inspired him to build a practice in Angola another in Goshen and soon another in Warsaw. He is committed to offering Northern Indiana the most comprehensive dental care available. Those who know Dr. Moore say, “He absolutely loves what he does” and this is evident by the constant energy he brings directly to his office and to his patients.

Beyond general dentistry, Dr. Moore provides the highest standard of treatment in oral surgery and full mouth reconstruction, advanced cosmetic procedures, endodontics, and denture fabrication. He is constantly upgrading his education to keep an edge in clinical advancements, new techniques, products, and treatment options to better serve his patients.

Seldom does a situation arise where Dr. Moore has to refer his patients to another office for specialized care. This eliminates the inconvenience of patients having to go from office to office, incurring extreme expenses, to complete their dental treatment.

Dr. Moore believes excellence in dentistry begins in the relationships with his patients. Only after listening to his patient’s goals and concerns does he attempt to address their dental needs. When planning care, he includes each patient as an active partner in the decision-making process to ensure that the outcome exceeds every expectation.

Dr. Thiele

Originally from Bluffton, Indiana, Dr. Kelli Thiele graduated from Norwell High School and earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry with a Biology minor from Manchester University.  At Manchester, Dr. Theile discovered what she would call her “true calling” – dentistry – during a medical and dental practicum trip to remote villages in Nicaragua. She then earned her D.M.D at The University of Florida College of Dentistry and returned to Indiana to practice dentistry here at Angola Dental Center.

Genuine interaction and care, and the ability to enjoy a comfortable dental experience is what patients admire about Dr. Thiele.  She is confident and relaxed as she communicates and designs treatment with patients to give them the smile they desire.  Her clinical approach in all areas is impeccable, but she most enjoys esthetic and cosmetic dentistry.

Dr. Thiele is married to Zac, and has three dogs.  Whether it’s boating on the lake, walking in the woods, or just sitting around the campfire… since high school, the two of them have been enjoying the outdoors together.

Dr. Thiele is certified in Invisalign orthodontic treatment and is a member of multiple dental organizations:
