Welcome new team member…Adria, Patient Care Coordinator!

I was born and raised in Sauk City, WI and started working in the dental field in 2014.  I am very grateful to be working at Artisan Dental and excited to be part of a team that cares not only about their patients’ oral health but their overall body wellness, as well as the Madison community.   In my free time I like spending time with my friends, going boating and floating around Lake Wisconsin, traveling to new places, and binge watching new Netflix shows.  I am looking forward to helping make your experience at Artisan Dental the best one yet!

The Ride

The Ride is a Wisconsin biking event that benefits UW cancer research and celebrates life. Starting in Sun Prairie, WI, The Ride travels through beautiful Wisconsin countryside. With five routes to choose from, there’s a ride for everyone from beginners to seasoned cyclists. Artisan Dental team members are participating in this event and would love to have you join our team on September 17th!

In preparation for The Ride, our next Wellness Series Event – Let’s Ride! is a leisurely bike ride leaving from right in front of Artisan Dental on September 13th. Please join us – All abilities welcome!

 

Welcome new team member…Rebecca, Registered Dental Hygienist!

I graduated from Madison College in 2009 and have enjoyed every moment of being a dental hygienist. I am so excited to be a part of Artisan Dental. The up to date technology and warm and inviting atmosphere makes me feel right at home. A little about me, I reside just outside of my hometown in Janesville with my husband and fur babies. I enjoy spending free time with my family, being outside and staying active. I also love Wisconsin football and being able to travel. I look forward to meeting all of you!

On a recent trip to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago I came across a colorful sculpture, Stella the Seahorse. Stella is thirteen feet tall, made entirely of plastic marine debris removed from Pacific Coast Beaches and is part of a traveling art exhibit “Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea” which officially debuts at the aquarium on September 23rd. Looking closely at Stella you see that she is made of things like drink bottles, bottle caps, toy shovels and TOOTHBRUSHES!

“Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea” inspires us to be part of the solution to reduce, reuse, repurpose and recycle. At Artisan Dental we encourage everyone, whether a patient here or not, to please gather up your toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes, floss containers, mouthwash bottles and deodorant containers and bring them to us. We are delighted to partner with Terracyle to make sure that these items get repurposed and don’t become part of this enlightening exhibit!

At Artisan Dental we appreciate that we are an interwoven part of a larger local and global community. We are heartened by the opportunity to support  organizations with owner and staff volunteer hours, free dental services, and/or ongoing financial contributions.

A recent example: Mackenzie, one of our amazing dental hygienists, and friends participated in the 2017 25th Scenic Shore 150 Bike Ride. This is a two day, 150-mile cycling event to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society along Lake Michigan. Mackenzie and friends were part of the 1500 cyclists that helped raise almost $1,400,000! Congratulations on completing such a worthwhile event and thank you for helping blood cancer patients live longer, better lives.
