Dental Hygienists

Deborah "Deb"


My husband and I grew up in Richland Center and have recently decided to make the move back home. We have 2 sons and crazy dogs that keep our house busy. I’ve been practicing for  20+ years and still love it. I look forward to seeing you in our office.



I earned my Associates Degree in Applied Science to become a Dental Hygienist from Madison College. Before getting my degree I worked as a dental assistant for 4 years. I am licensed in local anesthetic and nitrous oxide sedation. I have also taken the classes to become certified in the use of diode lasers. I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 children.



I have been practicing dental hygiene since 1991 and am a graduate of MATC – Madison. I am certified in the administration of local anesthetic. My goal is to make each patient visit a pleasant and comfortable experience while providing excellent dental care. I believe and continue in being a life-long learner and staying up-to-date with current trends in dental hygiene so that I can share the latest information with my patients. I live in Reedsburg with my husband and 2 sons. I enjoy photography, biking and spending time with my family and friends.



I am a graduate of Normandale Community College in Bloomington, MN. I am originally from Richland Center and was excited to move back to be closer to my family. I love seeing so many familiar faces each day! I enjoy spending time educating the youth of Richland County about dental hygiene. I live near Richland Center with my husband, 1 son & 2 daughters.
