Maxine

Reception / Patient Accounts Manager

I am here to make your visit to our office as pleasant and as seamless as possible. I will assist you from the moment you enter the door through appointment scheduling, treatment coordinating, insurance processing, and financial planning. I have worked in this office since the day Dr. Wagner opened the doors, and have been proud to work alongside him and the rest of our team for so many years. We all share the same goals and are friends both inside and out of the office.

I have been married to my husband Bob for 40+ years. We have two married sons and six grandchildren. I love to garden, read, do jigsaw puzzles, and attend our grandchildren’s soccer, karate, and band activities.

A little known fact about me is that I started off my career as a dental assitant but after working the reception desk for a time, I found that I really enjoyed that position. I love greeting our patients old and new and appreciate the relationships I have built with so many over the years. 

 

Kathy

Registered Dental Hygienist

I receive such satisfaction from helping patients achieve good oral health. I love that we have such a family-friendly atmosphere. At our office, patients are treated like a person and not a number. I believe that our patients appreciate this very much and that is why they come to us. I also enjoy the personal relationships that I have developed with my patients over the years. They make coming to work so fun! Dr. Wagner is a kind, caring man, and I am grateful to have been employed here for more than 25 years. My co-workers are the best! Each one brings unique gifts and personalities that add up to a great working team.

I have been married to my husband Murray for 40+ years. We have three married children and thirteen grandchildren who make their homes in Green Bay, Alaska, and Virginia. When Murray and I are not traveling to visit our kids, we enjoy going to Door County, biking, spending time at the family cottage, quiet times together, skiing with family, and watching the Green Bay Packers!  

Two little known facts about me are that I can touch my tongue to my nose and played the accordian in grade school!

 

Karen

Registered Dental Hygienist

My career in dentistry began more than 30 years ago. I transitioned from being a dental receptionist to a dental hygienist by continuing my education at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. Now, as a hygienist, I work with patients of all ages to ensure each achieves a lifetime of great oral health. The favorite part of my job is educating all ages in preventive dental care. I especially enjoy working with periodontal patients to prevent further progression periodontal disease and help to restore excellent oral health.

I feel blessed working with Dr. Wagner and his entire staff for more than 10 years now.  I love that our office emphasizes Christian values and puts people first. Each member of our team is dedicated, professional, and friendly. 

I am married to my husband Guy and have a grown son who lives in Rhode Island and daughter who makes her home in California. I enjoy camping, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, watercolor painting, working out at the YMCA, and being active with my church. I thank God for the blessing each new day brings.

A little known fact about me is that I have traveled to eleven different countries.

 

Jana

Registered Dental Hygienist

At the age of 16, I began assisting in my uncle’s dental office in Gladstone, MI. From there, I attended Ferris State University to earn my degree in dental hygiene. It was the start of a career that has lasted more than 30 wonderful years, the last 25 of which have been with Dr. Wagner. It is my goal to help patients achieve and maintain good oral health through preventive care, cleanings, and education. I like getting to know each patient on a personal basis. While I enjoy all my patients, I especially love working with children!

I am married with grown twin boys Gabe and Josh.  Gabe lives in Green Bay and works in IT field.  Josh is studying geography and cartography.  We enjoy our very sassy little “morkie” named Jazzy who keeps us on our toes. 

I love to travel and have been to more than 10 countries.  It is also my goal to visit all 50 states - only 8 more to go!  I enjoy time with family, visiting my mom in upper michigan (yes, I'm a Yooper) and spend lots of time "up North".  My hobbies include, photography, matting and framing, going to art shows, golfing and skiing.

A little known fact about me is that I am also a certificed Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)!

 

Debi

Certified Dental Assistant

After working as an assistant in various other offices for ten years, I joined Dr. Wagner in his new, family-focused dental practice. That was more than 25 years ago, and I can’t imagine my life without the wonderful people I’ve met in this office. Everyone here has a team-approach attitude. We all cheerfully pitch in to take care of whatever task or duty needs to be done. A big part of my job is helping our patients feel relaxed and doing everything I can to make dental treatments as comfortable and efficient as possible. I enjoy getting to know our patients and maintaining long-term, friendly relationships with them.

I have been married to my husband Smokey for 25+ years, have two grown sons and 5 (yes 5!) very active little dogs that keep us entertained and make our house lively! I enjoy traveling, reading, going to the farmers markets, and spending time with my family.  

A fun fact about me is that my paternal grandmother came to the United States from England on the Titanic!

 

Rebecca

Certified Dental Assistant

I joined Dr. Wagner's team in 2004 having no dental experience but a strong desire to learn and become a valued team member.  I have worn a lot of hats over the past 13 years, but the job I love most is assisting Dr. Wagner during dental procedures with a goal of giving each and every patient an outstanding treatment experience. I enjoy working with people and love keeping up on the latest dental technology. I am a Certified Dental Assistant (NWTC) and a trained technician in the use of our E4D Dentist™ crown fabricating machine.  I think it's great that we can produce a professionally designed crown from start to finish and deliver it to you the same day!

This office is a special place.  Dr. Wagner has worked hard at creating an understanding, relaxed atmosphere where everyone is pulls together as a team. Ours is a friendly and family oriented office and I think you’ll love it here as much as I do!

My husband Lucas and I have been married 11+ years. We have a daughter and a son.  Our whole family is into sports: baseball, softball, boating and just generally spending time outside together as a family. We are also big Brewers, Packers, and Badgers fans.  Go Team!

A little known fact about me is that I completed LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) training but loved my job here too much to move on.

 

Tanya

Receptionist/Certified Dental Assistant

As the Doctor's kid, I began working in his office when I was a teenager, cleaning the office on the weekends and after school. In 2013, I began working at the front desk where I learned our computer software system and greeted patients. I became a Certified Dental Assistant in 2015 (NWTC) and currently float between working at the Front Desk, helping out in the Lab and Dental Assisting.  Wherever I am needed, I'm there!

I love working with my Dad. He has high standards and he expects the best out of me. I enjoy each and every lady I get to work with and appreciate how well we all get along. Everyone does what they can to help the office run as smoothly as possible and to make it a great place to be.

An interesting fact about me is that Dr. Wagner and his wife adopted me and my friend Anya from an orphanage in Cheboksary, Russia in December 2006. I was 13 and Anya was 14 at the time so both of us can still speak some Russian!  I love my big family here and always look forward to getting together with my four older siblings, their spouses, and my many nieces and nephews.

 

Geri

Office Manager

I wear a lot of hats! I deal with most matters related to staffing, bookkeeping, legal issues, technical issues, advertising, continuing education, purchasing office supplies, decorating, etc. You name it and I have probably done it. From time to time, you may even see me helping out at the front desk! I work behind the scenes to help keep the business running smoothly and to allow our super staff to focus on what they do best, which is patient care!

As Dr. Wagner’s wife, I have been working in the office in some form or another since he went into private practice 25+ years ago. Ours is truly a family business where the kids grew up learning the value of pitching in and working hard. Each one of them has, shall I say “fond,” memories of cleaning the office on the weekends and restocking the supplies. I feel so fortunate to work with my husband, our youngest daughter, and very soon, our son. 

I love being a wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Most of my activities center on spending time with the people I love most. I like to travel, take day trips to Door County, browse antique shops and art fairs, play card games, repurpose furniture, and be actively involved in our church.

Matthew

Dental Associate - Coming June 2018!

As Dr. Wagner’s son, I have been around the office since I was kid. My dad believes in a strong work ethic, so as kids, we were always doing jobs around the office and expected to work hard.  Seeing the great relationships my Dad has with his patients and knowing I had an interest in healthcare, I decided to follow my father’s footsteps into the dental field.  I graduated from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) School Of Dentistry in Bradenton, Florida, June 2017 and am currently doing a one year Dental Residency at the Hennepin County VA in St. Paul, MN.  The experience I am recieving there is outstanding. It is rigorous and challenging but I thoroughly enjoy it!

I look forward to bringing fresh, new approaches while being mentored by my dad who offers a wealth of experience and knowledge. I love medicine, technology, and the study of structure and function. Dentistry combines all these things to makes for a career I love.   

 

 

Growing up in Wisconsin, I have always enjoyed the big outdoors. Fishing, hunting, and camping were important parts of my childhood. While  in Florida, I took up scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, and paddle boarding.  I love being back in the Midwest, but I do miss the beach! 

 

I married my love and best friend Jenica, in June 2017. I graduated and got married the same week!  We currently make our home in St. Paul MN.  We love to explore the city, take walks, try new foods, cook together and sing together. We also have a furry little pomeranian named "Mika" that came with deal.  Jenica and I place a high value on faith, family and friends and divide our time between friends in the cities, her family in Florida and mine in Wisconsin.  

Some fun facts about me are that I have my pilot’s license and love to play the guitar.
