Dr. Naheed Madani: Associate Dentist  I graduated from Marquette University School of Dentistry in 2018, although the decision to go into the dental field came about long before, in high school, when I got to shadow at a dental office. The artistic skills of rebuilding a smile, combined with educating patients on how best to care for their smile, solidified my decision to go into the dental field. I am also a member of the WDA. When I’m not at the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our son, Adam. We frequently visit our family in the Chicago area and like to host them at our house as well. I also enjoy trying new restaurants and am also a bit of a movie buff. I am thrilled to be part of the team at Grand Avenue Dental Care where I get to work along dedicated staff, as well as experienced, knowledgeable dentists who make this a close-knit team. We also offer advanced dental technology in our office to make our patients’ visits easier and more efficient, which I love. My favorite part about being a dentist is being able to develop a long term relationship with my patients, as well as a plan to help them meet their dental goals.

Our hygienists! We sometimes refer to them as the 'Teeth Geeks' because they truly 'geek-out' over all things teeth cleaning. These pros are dedicated to educating you about your dental health and how you could improve it. They continue to educate themselves about the latest practices and products available to help you get the smile you want.

Laura L.: Dental Hygienist

I graduated from MATC in 2008 for dental hygiene and I have been working with Dr. Wilk ever since. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending my time with family and friends. I have two children, a boy and a girl and they tend to keep me moving! I enjoy playing volleyball, cooking, gardening and reading in my spare time. I also LOVE cleaning teeth and I can’t wait to see you in the office!

Holly W.: Dental Hygienist  Since my freshman year in high school, I’ve wanted to be a dental hygienist. I spent a lot of time in braces, which also meant a lot of time at the dental office and I found the dental field to be very interesting. I graduated from WCTC in 2002 with an Associates Degree in dental hygiene and over the years have had the pleasure to work with a variety of patient demographics and backgrounds. I have lived in Washington county my entire life and have three wonderful kids that keep me very busy! I enjoy watching my kid’s sporting events, traveling, hiking, camping, tennis and golf. I am also engaged and plan to marry in 2019! It is very rewarding to me to be able to ease my patient’s anxiety and to help them to feel better about their smile. I’m very excited to be a part of the GADC team and I love how much the whole team cares about their patients and the community!

Becky D.: Dental Hygienist  I graduated from WCTC in 2011, with my associate degree in dental hygiene. Before that, I was Dr. Wilk’s assistant for 11 years. My husband and I live in Kewaskum and have two little girls, Isley and Hazel. Some of my favorite things to do, besides spending time with my family, is going on cruises (to any warm location!), running outside and taking my daughters shopping for cute clothes. My favorite season is summer and enjoy spending time in the sun and going away for long weekends. I love working for an office that continues to improve and grow and getting to know my patients is always something I enjoy.. I’m happy to be here at Grand Avenue Dental Care!

Melissa R.: Dental Hygienist  I graduated from MATC with my Associate Degree in Dental Hygiene in 2018 and was able to start right away with Grand Avenue Dental Care. Prior to that, I worked for 6 years as a dental assistant and during that time, really fell in love with the dental field. I just love the interactions I was able to have with the patients and that I will continue to have here as a dental hygienist. While I am not educating patients in the office, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, kayaking and being outdoors and attending live concerts of some of my favorite country musicians. I love working in such a positive environment like we have here at Grand Avenue Dental Care. The staff are all so friendly and I look forward to meeting all of our wonderful patients when they come in for their hygiene visit!

Holly P.: Dental Assistant:  I was born and raised in Hartford, and have been working at Grand Avenue Dental Care since 2016 as a dental assistant. As a child, I loved going to the dentist, and knew that I wanted to do something in the medical or dental field and be able to help people. Dental assisting was the perfect fit for me and I graduated in 2014 from a dental assisting program in Green Bay. I am so happy to have found Grand Avenue Dental Care because it is close to my home and I feel like it is my second family. I love building relationships with my patients and being able to make them comfortable while educating them on how to take care of their smile. I also enjoy the whole team of people here, and how genuine and caring they are with their patients. When I’m not at the office you can find me outdoors kayaking, walking my dogs, playing volleyball, gardening or spending time with my family and friends.

Becky S.: Dental Assistant  When I was pretty young, I accompanied my mom on a visit to the dentist when she needed to get a root canal. The dentist had to ask me several times to “get out of his light” and from that time on, I knew I wanted to go into the dental field. I began my career as a dental assistant in 2013 and have been loving every minute of it. I am thrilled to have joined the great staff here at Grand Avenue Dental Care. I feel like I’m part of a family here and I love the friendly, positive atmosphere we create for our staff and our patients! When I’m not in the office you can find me spending time with my friends, family and my puppy, usually outdoors. I also enjoy hunting and I am a licensed emergency medical responder. I look forward to Sharing Smiles with our patients for years to come!
