Dr. Keith
DDS

Professional Background

Dr. Keith attended the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, where he majored in Biomedical Science and minored in Chemistry. While at UW-La Crosse, he was the recipient of an art gallery award in ceramics. Keith achieved his DDS degree from Marquette School of Dentistry in Milwaukee, WI.

Dr. Keith  wanted to create a Dental Practice that offers:

• A work environment that is like being with family with strong, supporting bonds.

• A non-corporate, non-cookie cutter, inspiring place for employees to work and for patients to visit.

• A patient-centered philosophy, as patient care is our number one priority.

• Continuity of care that isn’t limited the way other dental offices are.

• Familiar faces at every visit. (Going to the dentist can create anxiety, apprehension, and fear, and not knowing who you will see and how you will be treated can add to that.)

• A team that is welcoming, courteous, professional and supportive of each other.

• Quality relationships with our patients and our community.

• A commitment to overcome barriers: At every phone call and visit, we will overcome your barriers and provide a level of dental care that you’ve never experienced before.

• The newest technology, high quality materials, and minimally invasive techniques, allowing us to give every member of your family a beautiful healthy smile.

• A local practice with one location and a singular focus on a positive environment for both employees and patients.

• The promise to always strive to grow better within.

• Overcoming barriers: At every phone call and visit, we will overcome your barriers with care and provide a level of dental care that you’ve never experienced before.

• Having the newest technology, high quality materials, and minimally invasive techniques, we are able to give every member of your family a beautiful healthy smile.

• Providing dentistry through quality, not quantity.

• A down-to-earth approach in a professional, personable setting.

Free time …

When he is not practicing dentistry, Dr. Keith enjoys grilling out, kayaking, camping, fishing, cheering on Wisconsin sports teams, gardening, curling, and spending time with family and friends.

Wisconsin Proud …

Dr. Keith was raised in the “country” south of De Pere, Wisconsin. 

Having moved to Wausau over 10 years ago, Dr. Keith is proud to be your local hometown dentist!

Professional Background

I have a four-year degree in Business and Marketing and chose to pursue a second degree in Dental Hygiene at NTC in Wausau in 2015. I love my career as a dental hygienist because I am able to build relationships with patients and have a positive influence on their oral and systemic health.

Florence
Dental Assistant
Purchasing Manager

Professional Background

I bring 47 years of varied dental experience to Simons Dental. My experience includes being a ceramist, where I fabricated crowns and dentures. The best years of my career are dedicated to being the best dental assistant I can be for our patients. My greatest reward is to see patients smile before and after our dental care. Dentistry has always been my true passion.

I enjoy working at Simons Dental because …

The staff provides the best dental care in Central Wisconsin. We pride ourselves on being a strong dental family that considers each patient a top priority.

In my free time …

My leisure time is spent with my family and friends. For self-care I find contentment in walking the pasture with my quarter horses. I am always contemplating the next chapter in the book I’m writing.

Lizzie
Front Desk
Insurance & Billing Coordinator

Professional Background

I have eight years of administrative background. My experience in billing and numbers comes from managing a large financial planning firm, and my experience with insurance was studied and tested while working for a small insurance agency. I got my start in dentistry three years ago with another small practice and look forward to the years to come.

I enjoy working at Simons Dental because …

This is an office where laughter and camaraderie surround the working atmosphere. I can honestly say that everyone here is always working with the patients’ best interest in mind.

In my free time …

I enjoy going out on the boat with my family and friends, cooking out in the backyard and sitting around the fire. I also enjoy a good, complicated DIY project.
