I graduated from WTC in 1983. I have enjoyed working in the orthodontic field for over 30 years. My biggest reward is watching generations of families achieve beautiful smiles through orthodontics! Outside of work I enjoy time with family and friends. I also enjoy my monthly euchre and bunko groups.

“A healthy smile is a beautiful smile!”

Michelle – Lead Orthodontic Assistant

I graduated from the WTC Dental Assistant Program and have spent over a decade in the field of dentistry, half of those years in orthodontics.  It is so rewarding to follow a patient on their orthodontic journey from start to finish and to see them gain not only an amazing smile by Dr. Dave, but also a new level of confidence.  The relationships that I am able to build with patients during their orthodontic journeys are what I love most about working in orthodontics. 

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children and doing photography.

Tessa – HR Coordinator

I have worked in the dental field since 2009 in either patient coordinator or insurance coordinator positions and previously worked for this practice from July 2011 – July 2013. I had the privilege of rejoining Dr. Dave’s team in November 2016. In recent years, my position has shifted, and I now work entirely “behind the scenes” fulfilling HR-related duties. While I no longer have any patient contact, I take great pride in supporting our amazing team so that they can provide the ultimate experience for our patients! I have always been – and will always be – passionate about what Kujak Orthodontics does for our patients and community.

Outside of work, I am busy with my husband and our three daughters. I love good food and coffee, date nights with my hubby, and traveling/taking vacations.

Jessie – Lead Patient Coordinator – Front Desk

I moved to the La Crosse area in 2019 from my hometown Ripon, WI and started working at Kujak Orthodontics that month. I truly enjoy coming to work every day knowing that we are helping people smile!

Outside of work I enjoy being surrounded by my friends and family and spending lots of quality time with my husband, Jake. Exploring surrounding cities, anything artsy, being outdoors and playing board games are a few of my favorite ways to spend my time.

Deisha – Office Manager

I grew up here in the Coulee Region and love seeing familiar faces come through the office, and meeting many new! After graduating from Brigham Young University-Idaho with a BS in Sociology, my husband and I came back to the area where we have been busy raising our two children. Although I have worked in several industries, I feel particularly grateful to be in orthodontics where each day, we help people to smile a little more confidently.

When I am not in the office, I especially enjoy family time on the river, coffee with friends, and a quiet moment with a paintbrush.

Megan – Clinical Assistant

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology in 2018. While in college, I went on a 2 week service leadership trip to Guatemala and helped serve over 500 patients with local dentists. Since I can remember, I have always been passionate about the dental field and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Kujak Orthodontic team. The most rewarding part about my job is getting to follow patients throughout their orthodontic treatment and witnessing the immense confidence boost with their new and improved smiles!

Outside of work, I enjoy hanging out with friends and family, the outdoors, and traveling to new places with my fiancé.​

Jen – Clinical Manager

I’m a fun-loving mother of three beautiful children and just moved to the lovely state of Wisconsin in 2020 from Virginia! What I love about the dental field is creating beautiful smiles and seeing people’s confidence grow. I graduated from A.C.T. technical school and have been a certified dental/orthodontic assistant for over 20 years. I’ve enjoyed seeing the advancements in technology over those years.

When I’m not trying to crack jokes with Dr. Dave, I enjoy outdoor activities with my family. I love to garden, cook and go antique shopping also! I can’t wait to see you at the office!

Pa – Orthodontic & Lab Assistant

I’ve been working in the dental field for 15 years, but recently joined the Kujak Ortho team and am very grateful and blessed to be a part of this great team. As a former orthodontic patient myself, it’s humbling and rewarding to know that we are able to help our patients smile more comfortably.

Olivia – Patient & Marketing Coordinator

I ended up staying in the La Crosse area after attending the University of Wisconsin La Crosse and was lucky enough to join Dr. Dave and his team here at Kujak Orthodontics shortly after graduating. Every day that I get to come to work is a joy! Being even a small part of each patient’s journey to getting their new smile is so encouraging and is the reason why I love what I get to do.

Outside of work I love spending time with my husband, friends and family, doing anything crafty, spending time in nature and taking care of my many house plants!

Collin – Treatment Coordinator

After growing up in a very rural town in northern Minnesota, I made the move to the big city of La Crosse to pursue a degree in Business Administration at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse. I have always been passionate about the business and hospitality side of the medical industry, that passion brought me to Dr. Dave’s orthodontic clinic. I serve as the Treatment Coordinator and strive to make each and every patient’s first visit to the clinic a comfortable and awesome experience!

Outside of work, I enjoy golfing, playing volleyball, and traveling with my wife.

Erin – Patient & Employee Experience Coordinator

I started working for Kujak Orthodontics in August 2020, and have loved meeting patients and seeing the progress they make while in treatment here.

While I am not at work I love spending time with family and friends, and being outside!

Kellen – Operations Coordinator

As a former patient of Kujak Orthodontics, the atmosphere of the office drew me in from the moment Dr. Dave and his team started my treatment. During college, I approached Dr. Dave about an internship during the summer months. I interned for 3 full summers here and enjoyed every moment. Those experiences have driven me into the dental field with great interest. I graduated from Illinois State University in 2021 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Pre-Dental (Biochemistry) and a minor in Business Administration.

I have always had a passion for sports, competing in Division 1 Track and Field for the past 5 years which gave me many great experiences as a college student-athlete. Although my team may look a little different now, I am excited to be a part of this team who has the same goal as me, “changing people’s lives by changing their smiles
