Danielle is an extremely gentle and gifted dental assistant. She is a very kind person and kids can sense it. She quickly forges relationships with children and is able to talk to them about the importance of regular brushing and is able to teach them how to do it properly.

What is the difference between a pediatric dentist and a family dentist?

Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry. A pediatric dentist has two to three years specialty training following dental school and limits his/her practice to treating children only. Pediatric dentists are primary and specialty oral care providers for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs. 


Amber is a very calm and sensitive dental assistant.  She is Lynn's daughter and practically grew up in the office.  She is studying to be an elementary teacher and is in tune with the needs of children. She is also a big animal lover and kids love talking to her about their family pets

She communicates regularly with local legislators in her position on the Wisconsin Dental Association Legislative Committee. She was also newly appointed the State of Wisconsin Public Policy Advocate for the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

Dr. DeRose won the Wisconsin Dental Association’s prestigious Pyramids of Pride award recognizing her lifelong dedication to the dental profession.  She was also recognized at the Traditions of Excellence celebration honoring University of Wisconsin-Parkside alumni who have excelled in achievement and service.

She teaches pediatric dentistry at Marquette University’s School of Dentistry and participates in their mentorship program.

In February, during Children’s Dental Health Month, she and her office staff provide numerous dental and nutritional outreach programs to area childcare establishments and preschools.
