Meet the Team
I am from Wisconsin and have been practicing dental hygiene for over 20 years. I can’t decide whether I enjoy the ever-changing world of dentistry or the amazing people I have had the opportunity to meet over the years! I love making people feel comfortable while addressing their dental concerns.
I value and spend a lot of time with my family and friends. I am married with 2 children and 2 dogs. I am also active in the Sun Prairie community. I love to cook, bake, walk and do yoga.
Hey there! I’m happy to introduce myself to you! My name is Helene. I grew up in Wisconsin Dells, but call Madison my home now for the past 35 years. I’m married with two wonderful grown adult kids. My workplace goal is to always provide a very positive experience to people I see by giving you the gentle and thorough sparkle and healthier smile you deserve. I’ve been doing this for 39 years and have seen lots of great changes in dentistry that provide better care and technology to you. Personally, I enjoy biking, kayaking, hiking, craft beers, cooking, and I am an avid Wisconsin sports fan. I can’t wait to meet YOU!
