OUR CARING STAFF
Kraklow Family Dentistry's staff make you feel comfortable as soon as you walk in the door. From the reception area to the dental hygienists and assistants. We provided a summary of our staff's bios to help familiarize you with their professional positions and personal backgrounds.
Mary jane - Office Manager
Mary jane has been with us since 1978, starting out as a dental assistant while helping out at the front desk. She advanced into the position of Office Manager in 1989, as a result of her tremendous knowledge of all aspects of the dental assisting and administrative issues in a dental office. She is the master organizer, keeping our office operations smoothly and our patients smiling. She is the ultimate multi-tasker and has the unique ability to remember the little things that are important to each of our patients.
She has personally seen three generations of families grow up through the years and takes an individual approach to each one and treats them as family. On a personal side, Mary jane has seen her own sister Susie contribute to our office as a hygiene assistant since 1992. It is very important to her to educate our patients, believing firmly that good oral health is a key component to a strong and healthy body. She has a strong commitment to seeing to the needs of every patient and works diligently to see that they are satisfied in every aspect of their visit.
In her free time, Mary jane loves spending time with her best friend and husband, Rick. They love to bike, cook and entertain. But more importantly, they just love being together in everything they do, they do it together.
Cherie - Registered Dental Hygienist
Cherie received her Associate Degree in Dental Hygiene from Milwaukee Area Technical college in 1975 and was a member of the American Dental Hygiene Association for 31 years. Cherie has been sharing her passion for her profession with our patients since 1984.
She loves to talk with them about the correlations between dental and medical health issues. She teaches them how to properly care for their teeth and is pleased to see the improvements in the health of their teeth and gums.
During her time off, Cherie spends time with her two sons and daughter.
Debbie - Registered Dental Hygienist
Debbie graduated from Marquette University in 1979 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene and is a member of the American Dental Hygienist's Association. Debbie has enthusiastically provided our patients with warm, personal care and expert skill since 1991.
She has committed her career in educating our patients to achieve optimal dental health. Debbie has been known to spend time in elementary classrooms to promote good dental health with young students. She also have been invited to high school classes to promote dental health careers.
Debbie's abounding energy carries over to her private life that she shares with her husband and three sons.
Susie - Hygiene Assistant
Susie's sister, Mary jane (our office manager), encouraged her to join our team in 1992 and as a result has been a valuable asset to our office. Susie's fun and friendly personality brightens our days and she always works with a professional approach and attention to detail.
She is committed to placing the needs of our patients first, as well as attending to the needs of our busy hygiene and dental departments. Her warm and caring manner is appreciated by all. She enjoys the challenge of multi-tasking with duties such as room preparation, sterilization protocols, and assisting the hygienists wherever necessary.
On a personal note, Susie enjoys the company of her husband and three children. Their school and extracurricular activities keep them very busy.
