Meet the Team

Dawn Laderer – Office Manager

Dawn Laderer - Office ManagerI was referred to Dr. Brian Rueben in February of 2005 when he owned Back To Basics Chiropractic, to see if he could help me with nerve pain that I had been experiencing for over a year. I had never been to a chiropractor before and I was terrified of being adjusted. At the time I was on a “routine” of getting a cold every three to four months, which I thought was normal. I had been in restaurant management for years and had accepted the pain and my colds as something that was normal because I was getting older and that I would deal with for the rest of my life. After only a few months of treatment, my pain was about 90% better. In May of 2005, I joined Back To Basics Chiropractic as an Office Manager. Since that time, I still get regular adjustments, my sciatic nerve pain is gone, and I never call in sick!

Since then, I have helped to build the practice handling all of the scheduling, billing and management needs. Over the last few years I have transitioned to working mostly from home, so I can focus more on just billing. One area that makes our office different and more complete in our care for patients, is how I strive to help everyone understand insurance terminology and their Chiropractic benefits, so they can fully utilize their benefits to the best of their ability. I am so excited to be helping Dr. Rueben to start another successful practice in Bend, Oregon and look forward to continuing to help patients meet their health goals!

When I’m not at work I enjoy camping, scuba diving, traveling, photography, making huge bubbles and gardening. With all my activities outside of work, I now understand how important it is to have a healthy lifestyle in order to play as hard as I work!


Annabel – Front Desk Administrator

AnnabellI first met Dr. Rueben when I came into his office in July of 2019 hoping he could help me after being involved in a car accident. As soon as I met him, I could tell he truly cared about the well being of his patients and was very passionate about helping them. I jumped at the opportunity to get to work with him! I’ve been his Front Desk Administrator since October of 2019 and I couldn’t be more excited to be here. I’m really looking forward to learning more about chiropractic and all of the healthcare benefits it has to offer, as well as helping all of our patients. I’m fluent in Spanish so I am able to assist the Hispanic community by interpreting in our office if needed. Quality of life is very important to me, so when I’m not at the office I take any opportunity I get to travel. I also enjoy teaching and performing different styles of Latin dance and spending time with family and friends.
