Jody – Clinical Coordinator

I graduated from WTC with a Technical Degree in Dental Assisting in May of 2010. I have always had an interest in the health field with a special focus on teeth. I can’t wait to see patients’ smiles turn into beautiful, straight smiles. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends.

“I know I am successful when a patient leaves the office smiling and feeling good about their smile!”

Barb – Financial Coordinator & Facilities Manager

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!”

Roey – Clinical Assistant & Lab Coordinator

I graduated from the Dental Assistant program at WTC in 2013, and began working at this practice in December of 2013. I enjoy helping people improve their smiles and hope to help patients have a positive experience as they go through treatment. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, running, and spending time with my friends and family.

“Making such a positive impact on patient’s lives is incredibly rewarding!”

Michelle – Clinical 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 – Insurance Coordinator

I have worked in the dental field since 2009 in patient coordinator and insurance positions and previously worked for this practice from July 2011 – July 2013. I rejoined Dr. Dave’s team in November 2016 and am thrilled to be back. Even though I am typically behind the scenes working with insurance, I am passionate about everyone achieving their best, healthiest and happiest smiles.

I want patients at Kujak Orthodontics to have an amazing experience while in our care and to leave us feeling confident and proud of their new smile. I feel blessed to work part-time currently and am busy outside of work with my husband and our three young daughters.

Jessie – Lead Patient Coordinator

I recently moved to the area from my hometown, Ripon, WI. I graduated from the dental assisting program at Fox Valley Technical College in 2015.  Following that, I worked for a general dental office for a few years.  I, then, decided I wanted a change in career and the area I live. After doing some exploring, I found Kujak Orthodontics and Onalaska!  My favorite part about my job is getting to know patients and following along through the years of transforming their smiles. 

In my free time outside of work, I spend a lot of time with friends and family, doing art projects and exploring new places.

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.​

Erika – Clinical Assistant

I previously worked in a General Dental Office and wanted to try something new. Coming here is the best decision and something I love. Making my patients feel comfortable when they first walk into our office is my goal. Making them smile and laugh is the best feeling. I enjoy watching patient’s start treatment and then seeing the end result is mind blowing. How they love to show off their new smile and feel confident.

When I am not at work I enjoy cooking new things, spending time with my 2 kids and fiancé. If it’s going on mini trips or hanging out in the back yard, we always make it fun family time.

Tierra – Clinical Assistant

I graduated, this past year, from the Dental Assisting Program at Western Technical Colle​ge. My career as an orthodontic assistant so far at Kujak Orthodontics has been truly rewarding. I continue to learn and grow as an assistant each day. Seeing the final result, after the braces are removed and our patients see their incredible smile, is truly the best part of my job.

It’s great to know that I had a part in helping to instill confidence in their smile.

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 – Clinical 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 Coordinator

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin La Crosse with a degree in Marketing and an Art Minor. Shortly after, I joined Dr. Dave and his team here at Kujak Orthodontics and 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 and getting to see patients grow in their confidence 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, Cam, and my friends and family, and I am passionate about finding creative and artistic things to do, spending time in nature, and taking care of my many house plants!

Kayla – Patient Coordinator

I moved to the La Crosse Area in 2016 and began working for Kujak Orthodontics later that year. I love working with the team to ensure our patients have the best experience with each interaction!

Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my husband and son, Caleb and Sonny. We especially enjoy weekend getaways, trips to the park, and finding new places to eat!

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 Coordinator

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies in May of 2019. Throughout college, I grew to love the La Crosse area, and decided to live here full time. 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!

Amber – Patient Coordinator

Joining the team, from a background in the healthcare industry and experience with hospitality management, I have enjoyed learning and growing in the orthodontic field. Being able to enjoy this incredible experience with Dr. Dave and the entire Kujak family, has been the most incredible and rewarding journey!

When outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 3 children.
