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.
I've been practicing hygiene for 34 years of which 28 years I have worked at Hillcrest Family Dental. I enjoy being a hygienist, and it has afforded me the opportunity to provide quality dental care to patients coupled with job flexibility. I cherish the relationships I have developed with my patients-some third generations! Along with Rick, my husband of 32 years, we have 3 children: Mandy, Spencer, Anna and 2 dogs, Cooper and Paisley. In my spare time I enjoy spending it with my family , golfing, snowmobiling, traveling or heading up north to our family cottage in Westfield.
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.
I was born and raised in Waukesha Wisconsin. I have lived here my whole life and I love it. I attended Waukesha West High school and those were some of the best times of my life. I was a cheerleader for my freshman year, participated in choir, and was involved in drama club. I was on the costumes and makeup crew for all four years of high school for drama. I even helped run the department my junior year, and was in charge of all of the quick changes and making sure everything was running smoothly during performances. It was a great opportunity that helped me to build leadership and time management skills. I went to UW Waukesha and WCTC for the nursing program, where I became a Certified Nurse’s Assistant. Shortly after, I decided to transfer to the dental assistant program which has changed my life. Some of my hobbies include camping, hiking, boating, crafting, going for long drives, hanging out with friends, going to the local theater, watching movies or TV shows, and going to cute coffee shops. Right now I am a certified nurse’s assistant part time on Wednesday’s and the weekends, while I am here at the office full time during the week. With both jobs, I make sure to put my 110% into my jobs to help my patients. It has shown me how to be responsible and caring. Work ethic is very important to me in everything I do.
Hi, I am Gabi and I am one of the dental assistants here at Hillcrest. I love being a dental assistant because I love talking with and meeting new people and being able to make relationships. Seeing someone in pain or embarrassed about their smile and leave the office a totally different person is one of the most fulfilling parts of the job. I went to WCTC for the dental hygiene program, then realized I loved assisting so I went to Oconomowoc Dental Assistant school. Some other hobbies include biking, shopping, going on walks with my boyfriend and 2 dogs Toby and Benelli, going on the boat, baking/cooking, doing home projects and hanging out with friends and family. Seeing the self-confidence people gain after restoring their smile is so amazing, and I love that I am able to be part of that experience with them!
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 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!
