Clinical Team

Office Manager

Our patients are like family. We love to see wedding and baby pictures and hear about events happening in their lives. I love helping our patients attain their dental health goals and know how it can make them feel—it can be life changing! I am honored to be able to impact people’s health and lives. I am Wisconsin born and raised with much time spent horseback riding. My husband and I spend time at home with our two dogs, Bailey and Bones, making wine and enjoying the outdoors.

Patient Care Specialist

I do what I love and love what I do! I am so lucky to be a part of a great dental team---we have compassion for our patients and want to provide the best care. Getting to know our patients and their families and watching their kids grow up is so much fun. On weekends, you will find me camping with my husband and son. When we are at home, we like to cheer on the Green Bay Packers with family and friends. I enjoy tapping into my creative side with floral arranging!

Clinical Manager

I enjoy helping patients smile every day. From our same day CEREC crown technology to putting apprehensive patients at ease with oral conscious sedation, nothing compares to the outcome of saving patients time and delivering care with little to no memory of their visit. Two teenage boys and an energetic young daughter keep Jeremy and I busy with sporting events and play time together. We enjoy camping, fishing, hunting and snowmobiling to keep us busy throughout all four Wisconsin seasons.

Treatment Coordinator

I love working with the Smile Clinic team. We all love what we do and strive to make our patients as comfortable and possible. It’s my favorite when patients that have been apprehensive about dental care in the past feel comfortable with our Smile Clinic team after their first visits. It is important to me to be able to establish the beginning of that long-term relationship.

My second passion is helping shelter animals. I have spent over 15 years volunteering at our local humane society, primarily working with dogs. I have also spent 25 years in the military and have had incredible experiences while serving my country.

Dental Hygienist

My career in the dental field started over two decades ago, and I still love it! As a hygienist I enjoy creating relationships with my patients while educating them on good oral health. I'm part of an amazing team who all enjoy working together with the goal of making each patient's dental visit a wonderful experience. When I am not helping our patients I enjoy gardening, swimming, biking, snowmobiling and spending time with my family.

Dental Hygienist

I really enjoy being a dental hygienist at the Smile Clinic. I absolutely love helping and getting know people. I grew up in the area and still live just west of Manitowoc. I enjoy spending time with my husband, Jeremy, and my children Cody and Mykaida. We are very active as a family and I recently started training for triathlons.

Dental Hygienist

I am part of a dental team that shares the same goals - to provide the best care for our patients and build long-term relationships. We stay current with the latest dental technology and continuing education so our patients are always comfortable while receiving the best care available. Recently becoming empty-nesters, my husband and I are looking forward to exploring new activities and doing more traveling. Something that has always been on our bucket list is to cruise the Mediterranean Sea while visit the adjacent countries.

Dental Hygienist

My relationship with the Smile Clinic started as child when I was a patient of Dr. Behringer’s. I always enjoyed my dental visits and decided to become a hygienist! I have a personal connection with my patients and love it when they share stories about themselves and their family. In addition to having great patients my teammates are fun to work with. We're like a big, happy family! My husband and I enjoy time playing with our children. We also enjoy outdoor recreation...biking, running and golfing.

Patient Care Specialist

I’m passionate about customer care and being a part of our front office team… greeting patients and scheduling appointments. Behind the scenes I handle our patient’s insurance and follow up on insurance claims. I have been fortunate enough to work in several aspects of dentistry and truly enjoy the dental field.

Originally from the Chicagoland area…I’m married with two sons. Our family enjoys camping, the beach and gardening.

Patient Care Specialist

I love being a part of the talented and friendly Smile Clinic team. I can see why patients come here and never leave!

Born in Lich, Germany, my family moved to the United States when I was 11 years old and spoke no English. My husband Kurt and I have eight children - ages 6-25 and two grandchildren. I enjoy spending time with my family, baking and cooking. I also enjoy volunteering at my kid’s school and breeding Labrador retrievers.

Treatment Coordinator

I love my team and everyone is fun to work with! We put our patients first and listen to their needs. The Smile Clinic strives to create an enjoyable dental experience and as a result we have long term relationships with our patients.

I have been blessed with a loving husband and three beautiful daughters. They keep us very active with school and sporting activities. I enjoy reading, spending time with family and attending truck pulls in the Summer. I also enjoy cooking and baking!

Hygiene Coordinator

As the Hygiene Coordinator I have the privilege of establishing relationships with all of our patients in the Hygiene Care Program...taking x-rays, polishing teeth and scheduling future visits. Each patient is unique and it’s fun when they share stories about their family and experiences. I love it! In addition to enjoying the time with my patients, I am surrounded by a team of compassionate hygienists who provide quality dental care. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my three nephews, cooking and watching football…especially the Packers.
