Meet Jack A. Rusch, DDS

Jack A. Rusch, DDS of Parkview Family Dentistry in New Castle, INI grew up on a small farm near Plymouth Indiana, and completed my undergraduate studies at Manchester College. I completed my doctorate in dentistry at the Indiana University School of Dentistry. I have been practicing dentistry in New Castle since 2000. I am a Pankey-trained dentist and member of the Pankey Institute.

When I have free time, I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my wife Cyndi and two sons, Cooper and Garrett. When I’m at the office, dentistry is my complete focus, as it has been for a long time.

The moment you arrive for your first visit, our outstanding team of dental professionals will greet you, and all of our advanced knowledge and expertise will be passed on to you in the form of leading-edge treatment. Above all, when you become our patient, you become our guest. Gracious, comprehensive, state-of-the-art care is the foundation of everything we do.

Whether you are looking for the ultimate in oral health care or considering a smile makeover, you’ll quickly discover the difference great dental professionals can make in your life, especially those who treat people, not just teeth.

Meet Kathryn Petry-Rich, DDS

Kathryn Petry-Rich, DDS of Parkview Family Dentistry in New Castle, INMy motto is, “When you love what you do, Monday feels the same as Saturday.” I truly love being a dentist, and look forward to going to work each day. Helping others has always been my passion! I enjoy the combination of artistry and science that dentistry affords me. The ability to transform a smile, alleviate discomfort, and help my patients maintain optimum oral and overall health is a wonderful feeling. In fact, I can’t imagine doing anything else.

Growing up in Columbus, Indiana, I always knew I’d pursue a career in the medical field. After receiving my bachelor’s degree in biology from Purdue University, I attended the Indiana University School of Dentistry. I graduated in 2008. I worked in corporate dentistry for a year, however, my love of people (and small town living) drew me to private practice in New Castle. I joined Parkview Family Dentistry and its sister site, Hagerstown Family Dentistry in 2009, and feel fortunate to work with a team of professionals who possess the same level of compassion, high standards, and commitment to providing superior, state-of-the-art dental care.

Aside from my work, my greatest joy is spending time with my husband, a veterinarian who grew up in New Castle. We enjoy hiking, walking, biking, and snow skiing. We’re also avid football fans, Go Colts!!
