Originally from England, Dr. Bishop graduated from Birmingham University Dental School with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery Degree. She held positions in restorative dentistry in several London dental schools and obtained a higher qualification in dentistry, the Fellowship in Dental Surgery of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

In 1989, Dr. Bishop came to Indiana to attend Indiana University School of Dentistry for specialty training in Prosthodontics. She received a certificate of postgraduate study in Prosthodontics, as well as a Master’s Degree in Prosthodontics. During her graduate study she received the I. Lester Funas Award. Dr. Bishop obtained her D.D.S. degree and her Indiana license in 1995. During her D.D.S. program she won the International Congress of Oral Implantologists Pre-Doctoral Achievement Award.

As a faculty member at the Indiana University School of Dentistry for seven years, Dr. Bishop taught Prosthodontics to pre-doctoral students. She is an active member of the American College of Prosthodontists, Academy of Osseointegration, and the American Dental Association.

Dr. Bishop now calls Indiana home. She lives in Carmel with her husband and two children. She is an avid gardener and enjoys swimming and yoga for relaxation.


Dr. Abey grew up in Valparaiso, Indiana. She graduated from Purdue University in 1999, with a Bachelor of Science in Materials Science Engineering. Her 4 years as a Materials Science Engineer launched her interest in the science of Dentistry.

In 2007, Dr. Abey graduated from Marquette University School of Dentistry in Milwaukee, WI with her D.D.S. While in dental school, she was able to combine her engineering background with dentistry by delving into Dental Materials research. Also while in dental school, she was given the opportunity to work as a lab technician within a Prosthodontic practice affiliated with Marquette. Her work at the practice opened her eyes to the specialty of Prosthodontics, the complexity of cases, and a deeper understanding of dentistry as a whole.

Dr. Abey completed a 36-month residency in Advanced Prosthodontics at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry, graduating in 2010. Her evidence-based residency had a specific focus on implant dentistry, surgery, as well as complex restorations. Dr. Abey is proficient in utilizing the latest technologies in implant placement and implant restorations. While in her residency, Dr. Abey continued to combine her background in materials engineering with dentistry by doing extensive research on titanium dental implants.

In addition to private practice, Dr. Abey taught as a clinical professor at the Indiana University School of Dentistry for 7 years. She taught Prosthodontics and Implant Dentistry to pre-doctoral students.

Dr. Abey lives in Carmel with her husband and two children. She is looking forward to serving the Central Indiana community by providing the highest quality of Prosthodontic care.
