My entire career has been dedicated to orthodontics. Over the years, I have had the privilege of working in the clinic as a certified orthodontic assistant, treatment coordinator, and office manager. Watching our patients grow in self-confidence has been especially rewarding to me with an added benefit of friendships along the way. Dr. Wilke and I have worked together since his first day of practice in 1995.

Coming into the office every day has never felt like work, it’s more like spending the day with friends who have a special purpose in mind. Besides my professional interests, I focus my time with my husband, adult children and grand-kids. My husband and I are active in our church, serve the local food pantry, enjoy traveling, and in the winter can be found on the cross country ski trails.

I started working for Dr. Wilke in 2011 as his orthodontic assistant. Over the years I have continuously expanded my knowledge in the orthodontic field through the various roles that I have served. I truly enjoy building relationships with patients while making them feel comfortable. Dr. Wilke and our team do an amazing job of creating beautiful smiles and I’m happy to be a part of it all.

In my free time I enjoy golfing, playing tennis, and spending time with my amazing friends and family. I’m also a proud Luxemburg-Casco Spartan and enjoy keeping up-to-date with their sporting teams, especially softball.

I started working with Dr. Wilke in September of 2016 as a receptionist and financial/insurance coordinator. The longer I work here, the more I realize what a special, gifted team we have. All of our team members play an important role in ensuring that each patient leaves our office comfortable, happy, and satisfied with their new smile. When I’m not at the office, I love to read, travel, and attend art showings.

I started my orthodontic career upon graduating from the Dental Assisting program in 1994. I have had the opportunity to work with Dr. Wilke as a clinical assistant, treatment coordinator and now in the business office as a receptionist. I strive to make the patients and parents feel welcomed and confident in the quality of care they will receive when they walk through the doors. I strongly believe in Dr. Wilke’s practice philosophy of providing personalized quality care to each of our patients.

Patient Coordinator

I am a graduate of the Dental Assisting program at Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton, Wisconsin. I began my career in this office in 1997 and then took a break to be a stay-at-home mom. I returned in August of 2012. I’ve been able to utilize my orthodontic knowledge in helping patients with each phone call I answer and with each smile across the desk. I enjoy being the first person to greet our patients as they come through the door. It is fun to get to know our patients and see their changing smiles. Dr. Wilke is a wonderful orthodontist. He creates a relaxed, professional, and fun place to work.

I’ve been married for eighteen years. We have two children. Together we enjoy skiing, boating, and going to our cottage with family and friends.

Patient Coordinator

My Husband and I were born and brought up in Door County.  We keep busy with three children and 2 dogs out in the country while spending much of our time refurbishing our 100-year-old farm house and barn. We also enjoy gardening and being outdoors.

When our youngest child started school full time, a position became available at Wilke Orthodontics.  I was thrilled to have the opportunity to join such a wonderful team.  My mother worked in the orthodontic field for over 30 years.  I can see why she enjoyed it so much.  Watching the progression of our patients’ smiles is heartwarming, and I can personally testify to the confidence orthodontic care has made in my own life.  I am proud to be part of the Wilke Orthodontics family!

I became a part of Wilke Orthodontics in January 2014. I enjoy getting to know the patients and helping create beautiful smiles with Dr. Wilke. It is fun to see how patients can blossom when they have a perfect smile.

It is wonderful to be able to be a part of this enthusiastic and caring group of people. Dr. Wilke has such great knowledge and passion for what he does that it is shown by the high quality of his work. We all strive to go the extra mile to provide quality care for our patients.

Clinical Technician

My career in orthodontics began in 2015 after graduating from a dental assistant program and then shadowing at Wilke Orthodontics. I discovered orthodontics was the specialty where I could truly enjoy a career in the dental field, and after having been brought onto the team. I have been doing just that. I enjoy the entire process of treating patients from the day they first step into our office to their last visit. The most fulfilling part of orthodontics is the relationships built between the staff and the patients. All involved are working together for the same goal, a functional and beautiful smile. I feel honored to be part of this hardworking and passionate team lead by Dr. Wilke.

Outside of the professional environment, my family is made up of my husband, James, our little girl and boy, and our fish named Fish. We enjoy and invest our time in our extended families, our church family, outdoor activities, and making the most of all the blessings God has given us.

The best part of my life is being a wife to Jeff, a mom to Michelle, Jen, and Paul and “Grama” to ten sweet grandbabies.  Sturgeon Bay has been home to me for over 30 years.  I have worked with Dr. Wilke and his team periodically over the past 22 years.  I consider this to be the second most important part of my life.  In my spare time, I like to hike, travel, and spoil children – it is no wonder that being a clinical technician is such a good fit for me.

Orthodontic Lab Technician

I work with our patients from their very first appointment to the final phases of their retention treatment. Working in our lab is especially fulfilling because I know that each appliance I help to create directly aids our patients in achieving or keeping a great smile. It is a wonderful feeling to know that our patients get a boost in self-esteem because of their new beautiful smiles.

I have two teenage children who are the joy of my life. We love spending time with family and friends and making people laugh.

My orthodontic career began at the Sturgeon Bay office in 2007.  What I like most about this job are the people.  Kids and adults alike come in as patients but leave as friends with beautiful smiles and improved self-confidence.  Dr. Wilke is an excellent orthodontist who puts his patients at ease with his kind, compassionate, and easy-going demeanor. It’s a privilege to be part of his staff!
