Meet Our Doctors

Colette – Dental Hygienist
I enjoy getting to know our new patients and learning about their lives. It’s just as enjoyable to care for an established patient who has become a friend. I like helping people I care about succeed in their dental and smile goals. I concentrate on patient education, teaching people why it’s important to keep their mouth clean and how to do so. I also perform hygiene cleanings, take photos and X-rays, and administer fluoride rinses.
Renee – Dental Hygienist
I have been part of the team for six years! I like building meaningful, lasting relationships with patients, while providing comfortable care. Each patient has his and her own clinical and personal needs. By listening to and talking with them, I’m able to help them learn that they’re in good hands while here. While I clean a patient’s teeth and provide preventive care, I teach them about oral health. Together, we find the home dental hygiene practices and products that will keep their smile healthy and beautiful.
I’m originally from Sauk City and now live in Fall Creek with my husband and our new son, Casey. We have two Australian Shepherds, Dixie and Monty. I enjoy walking and hiking with the dogs, gardening, and being outdoors.
Kay – Dental Hygienist
I enjoy my interactions with patients, talking about their day and learning about their lives. Those exchanges bring us closer together and create a bond of trust. While I’m cleaning a patient’s teeth, performing perio charting, and taking X-rays, I educate my patient. I teach about their unique dental health and the steps they can take to improve it. Seeing a healthy smile at a recall visit makes my day.
I’ve been married for 35 years and have three adult sons. My favorite pastime is horseback riding. I love animals, grew up on a farm, and currently have two dogs and a cat.
Maggie – Dental Hygienist
I have been with Clearwater Dental for three years, and my patients are the best part of my job! Each one is unique and has a different story. They keep me on my toes and give me new experiences every day! I am a great team player, and fill in wherever I’m needed to help keep our office running smoothly.
I enjoy spending time with my husband, Erik, our daughter, Lela, and our dog, Bedford. I love to ski, snowmobile, and go out on the boat! I’ve lived in Eau Claire for over 10 years. I love the Chippewa Valley. There’s so much to do, and it’s beautiful here!
Sarah – Dental Assistant
I enjoy working with our patients, making sure they have a positive experience and leaving with a smile. It’s fun to get to know people and build relationships with them. I look forward to their visits and catching up on their lives. I prepare patients to see the doctor, take impressions and create models, prepare and mix materials, and perform laboratory functions. I also offer chairside assistance, making sure the doctors have what they need while making sure our patients are relaxed.
When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy going to see live music and have been fortunate to perform live with some local groups.
Brianna – Dental Assistant
Brianna joined our team in October 2019. She loves our wonderful patients and her amazing coworkers, and works each day to help our office run as smoothly as possible.

Kristy – Dental Assistant
I graduated from CVTC’s Dental Assistant Program, and have been part of the Clearwater Dental team since 2016. I like meeting new patients and catching up with current patients. I love helping them with their teeth and striving to meet their needs. I take X-rays when the patient comes in for their cleaning appointment and get them ready for the hygienist.
