My name is Mikki and I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist for 16 years, all of which have been at this wonderful dental office. I have a great love for my job and the many patients that I get a chance to develop relationships with. Creating a clean and healthy mouth is so gratifying to me. Being able to work in a family environment with both patients and coworkers makes coming to work enjoyable. My home love is my Chihuahua, Milo, and my nephew Jaden who I have had the pleasure to help raise. I am very close to all my family members and cherish every moment I get to spend with them.
My name is Jessica and I am one of the hygienists at Hillcrest Family Dental. I graduated from Milwaukee Area Technical College in 2010 with a degree in dental hygiene. Helping people improve their oral health is one aspect I enjoy about being a dental hygienist. I also enjoy meeting new people and getting to know them on a personal level. When I am not working I like to travel, spend time with my family and paint with acrylics.
My name is Kerri. I am the lead Certified Dental Assistant at Hillcrest Family Dental, and have worked here for over 16 years. One of the most enjoyable aspects of my job is the close relationships I have gained by working with such great patients throughout the years. I take pride in helping Dr. Ross Oberschlake provide the highest quality dental care in the Waukesha area. I enjoy creating a unique dental experience for our patients by having fun while restoring your dental health. I love hearing about our patient’s families and all of your lives. By creating relationships with you, I am able to assure that you will have a great time while in our chair, and be very comfortable. Outside of work I spend my time with my family. I have a wonderful husband and three fantastic kids that keep me very busy! We also have a 10 year old English bulldog named Lola. We enjoy traveling, boating, biking, watching and participating in sporting events, and playing games as we are all very competitive! I truly enjoy getting to know our patients and seeing everyone’s reaction to how easy and fun it can be to come to our dental office. I enjoy watching your families grow and would love to help maintain your beautiful smiles here in our office. I look forward to meeting you soon!
I am Katie and I have been a dental assistant here at Hillcrest Family Dental for approximately three years. Before becoming a dental assistant, I was a hair stylist. I love being creative, paying attention to detail and working with people. I enjoy meeting and working with all of the great patients at our office and making their dental experience as enjoyable as possible. Outside of work, I enjoy spending as much time with my family as I can. I have two step daughters who keep us very busy with softball, soccer and basketball and we like to do almost anything outdoors together. I also enjoy gardening, scrapbooking, hiking and our two dogs, Miley, our eight year old black lab and Beau, our one year old beagle.
My name is Angela and I am the office manager. My career in dentistry began as a dental hygienist. I graduated from Milwaukee Area Technical College in 1998 with a degree in dental hygiene. After 14 years of practicing dental hygiene I began to shift my focus to the front office and pursue my bachelor’s degree in Business Management and Leadership from Wisconsin Lutheran College. During my time at Wisconsin Lutheran College I learned how much I enjoy the business aspect of dentistry. Helping people has always been a passion of mine and being able to help a person navigate through their insurance policy and receive benefits is very rewarding. My experience with the clinical side of dentistry is an asset to achieving effective communication with an insurance company to receive the best possible outcome for our patients. When I am not at the office I enjoy spending time with my family. We enjoy frequenting many of the local theaters. My 10 year old daughter keeps me very busy with her activities and in the summer we like to spend much of our time on the water.
My name is Bonnie and I’m the newest addition to the Hillcrest team…but certainly not new to the office! I started as a patient when I was in college and over the years frequented the office with my five growing children. They loved coming to the dentist with the ‘submarine window’. I have always enjoyed working with people, so the transition to a part-time receptionist in this office was an easy decision. My new reduced hours allow me to spend more time with my three new grandchildren. Aside from spoiling them, I also enjoy scrapbooking, working on home projects, camping and traveling. It would be my pleasure to meet you when you visit our office in the near future. I’m confident you’ll enjoy the family friendly office as much as I do!
