Tina outdoor 1

Tina – Registered Dental Hygienist

Tina is one of the talented and experienced members of our hygiene team. She was born in Louisiana, raised in Colorado, and after graduating high school and a time working in another field, she graduated from college in Colorado with her Dental Hygiene degree. What made her want to enter the field of dental care was that she had worked with an oral surgeon and realized that she loved teeth. Additionally, she wanted to make people feel comfortable at the dentist, since she was always so scared of it growing up. She moved to our area to be near her two adult children and her grandchildren, and we’re glad she did. In terms of her overall approach to her profession, Tina focuses on teaching people how to take care of their teeth and—even more than that—helping them to like their smiles. She always treats patients how she would treat her own family. One of the most important ways that she contributes to the success of our office is through patient education: she always wants our patients to be fully informed about the condition of their teeth, the services being provided, and ways to prevent tooth decay and other problems. She’s also flexible in her scheduling to help get our patients in for appointments. What she enjoys most about being part of our Parkdale Dental Center team are her wonderful teammates and patients. Outside of work, Tina loves spending time with her kids and her grandkids. A few of her hobbies include hiking, biking, kayaking, and gardening.


Carla – Registered Dental Hygienist

Our experienced dental hygienist Carla is originally from Stevens Point. After graduating from Stevens Point Area Senior High, she went on to earn her associate degree in Dental Hygiene from Northcentral Technical College. She has always had an interest in helping people, and she is always focused on educating patients early to prevent disease and/or prevent it from moving forward. When it comes to her overall approach to dental care, she treats every patient with kindness and understanding, ensuring there is never any judgement. She understands that all patients have different needs and some may need special care, and she goes above and beyond to make this happen. What she likes most about our office is being part of a fun, caring groups that wants the best for our patients. Outside of work, Carla enjoys spending time with her husband, Eric, and their furry kids. Some of her favorite activities are spending time outdoors, working on her hobby farm, and running her dog and cat rescue.

Ashley – Dental Assistant

Ashley, one of our wonderful dental assistants, is originally from Rosholt, Wisconsin. She started work in our office in September 2021, and she is currently in the process of earning her Dental Hygiene certification.

When she isn’t at work, Ashley likes to be outdoors and active. Her favorite pastimes include hunting, fishing, hiking, playing volleyball, and traveling.

Madeline – Dental Assistant

Madeline was born and grew up right here in Waupaca. After graduating from high school, she went on to earn her one-year technical diploma in Dental Assisting from Fox Valley Technical College. She pursued a career in the dental field because she enjoys making people smile and helping them to feel more confident with their smiles. Her passion and overall approach in dental care is to treat each patient with kindness, focus on preventative care, and ensure every person in her chair feels comfortable and confident about the work being done. She always tries to have a positive attitude that helps create a welcoming environment for patients. She feels that the best part about our Parkdale Dental Center practice is how kind and welcoming her coworkers are. Madeline is very appreciate of the help and support of her boyfriend, Sebastin, and her family — including her mom, Mary; her dad, Chad; and her siblings, Garrett and Makayla — have provided throughout her college studies in getting her to this point in her life. Some of her favorite activities outside of the office are playing tennis and pickleball, boating and fishing with her boyfriend, and going to concerts.
