I graduated from the Dental Assistant program at WTC in 2013, and began working at this practice in December of 2013.

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
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 – Lead Trainer & Orthodontic 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.
Ashley – Clinical Assitant
I grew up in Independence, WI and moved to La Crosse in the fall of 2020. I started at Kujak Orthodontics in the fall of 2023. I love coming to work every morning and seeing all the smiling faces! Outside of work my hobbies include chilling with my dog and boyfriend, cooking, painting nails and anything that has to do with art! I have always been a creative individual and love creating works of art with my hands!
Pa – Lab & OSHA Coordinator
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 & Operations 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.
Kellen – Operations Manager
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
Chelsey – Financial Coordinator
I am a product of the great state of Minnesota and a 2013 graduate of Southwest Minnesota State University. After working in the WNBA for a few years, I found myself in the La Crosse area and have enjoyed all it has to offer. I’m thrilled for this new adventure with Kujak Orthodontics and I look forward to making you smile and hopefully laugh along the way!
When time allows, I enjoy cooking, traveling to new places and exploring the local food scene, fishing and both watching and playing sports. Anytime I can do any of these with family and friends, it makes it even more special.
Amie – Patient Coordinator
I recently made Wisconsin my new home after meeting my husband. I’d been searching for a career where I felt I was making a real impact, I believe I’ve done that with Kujak Orthodontics! I look forward to coming to work and helping each patient find their true beautiful smile.
When I’m not at work I can be found curled up on the couch with a good book, a cold soda, and my two puppies. I’m also an amateur baker, so I can be found near an oven almost any weekend!

I’m super excited to work with Dr. Dave and the rest of the team at Kujak Orthodontics.
