Meet Our Doctors
Leslie Spangler, DDS
Dr. Leslie Spangler grew up in Eau Claire and graduated from Memorial High School. She then moved to Madison and completed her undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin – Madison in medical microbiology and immunology with highest honors. While pursuing her studies rigorously, she also enjoyed her time as a trumpet player in the Wisconsin Marching Band.
Following graduation, Dr. Spangler moved across the border to Minneapolis to attend dental school at the University of Minnesota. There, she developed a passion and skill in the area of endodontics (root canals), periodontics (gum treatment), and pediatrics. Upon graduating from dental school, she immediately returned home to Wisconsin and the Chippewa Valley.
Today, Dr. Spangler lives in Eau Claire with her husband, Bill; their three young children, Sylvia, Nolan, Charles; and their black Labrador, Stella. When not seeing patients, Dr. Spangler enjoys long distance running, reading, and following Wisconsin Badger sports. She is a member of the American Dental Association, Wisconsin Dental Association, Northwest District Dental Society, Seattle Study Club, and Chippewa Valley Study Club.

Bobbi – Clinic Manager
I love being part of the Clearwater Dental team. It’s truly a joy to work in such a positive atmosphere with amazing doctors and team members. Everyone is focused on delivering the best care and creating healthy smiles for our patients. Even better, they make our patients smile and laugh while they’re here! I help ensure that everything goes smoothly at every visit. I want our patients to have a wonderful experience and look forward to seeing us again.
My husband, Mark, and I have three children, two grandchildren, and two dogs. We love time at our home in the country, morning workouts, and walks.
Jackie – Assistant Clinic Manager
I enjoy meeting new people and helping them get settled into our practice. We talk about their lives and interests, and that creates a wonderful bond. Whether I’m chatting with a child at their first visit to see the dentist or hearing about an upcoming trip, I’m happy. I help our patients throughout their appointments. I especially like assisting people with their insurance matters. I make sure they get the most from their benefits.
I’m married, have two boys, and a family dog. I enjoy being with family and friends, going for walks, and attending sporting events.
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 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. We have a dog, Dixie, who’s an Australian Shepherd. I enjoy walking and hiking with Dixie, 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
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 enjoy spending time with my fiance, Erik, 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.
Kristy – Dental Assistant
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. I also work with the dentists by performing chair-side assistance; I take impressions, trim models, and perform other lab duties.
In my free time, I like to bake and decorate cakes, take walks with my sister, and go biking. I also love playing with my three golden retrievers, Tobie, Gracie, and Jaxon and my cat, Kassy.
