Meet the Staff
My name is Raquel and I am the dental assistant for Dr. Hammes. I have worked at Spring Dental Group for two years and I sit chairside with Dr. Hammes to assist with patient care. My goals are to fully serve our patients, as well as support my doctor.
Outside of the office, I find myself spending most of my time enjoying the company of my family and friends.
Since December 2010 I have had the pleasure of working at Spring Dental Group. I am Dr Hammes' chairside assistant. I have 18 years of clinical experience and an Associates Degree in Dental Assisting. I enjoy working with the doctors and the staff here at Spring Dental Group. They are a kind, caring and professional group of individuals who strive to give you their best. I love to work with patients and I look forward to many happy years here.
Outside the office my husband and I love to travel and hang out with our kids.
Hello!! I am the office manager here at Spring Dental Group since April of 2011. I have a Bachelors Degree in Health Services Administration which helps me maintain a fun, yet efficient, office. Becoming a part of the Spring Dental Group team has proven to be a most rewarding experience. It is so refreshing to see how caring and genuine all of the staff here truly are. This shows the commitment Spring Dental has not only to giving the best oral care but building lasting and meaningful relationships with our patients.
My husband Marv and I live in Racine with our daughter Lyndsee and son Lukas. When not working, we love to go camping as much as possible with friends. If I am not spending time with family or here at the office I look forward to cooking, gardening, and watching sports.
My name is Kathy and I have been in dentistry since 1988. I graduated from the Dental Assistant Program at Gateway Technical College and was the first dental assistant for Dr. Lamberton. I graduated from MATC Dental Hygiene Program in 2005 and have gratefully practiced here since 2007. I strive to educate, empower and encourage my patients.
I have 2 daughters, and in the summer I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend on his boat and his motorcycle!
I came to Spring Dental Group 25 plus years ago after receiving a bachelors of science degree in dental hygiene from Marquette University. What I love about hygiene is that people from all walks of life have the common thread of a smile. Your smile speaks volumes! I am here to help you make your smile a happy healthy one. I have been very fortunate to combine my fascination of the new trends in dentistry with my love of traveling. Getting new perspectives from speakers and attendees at dental meetings across the country has helped keep the profession fresh for me.
Since forming our Spring Dental Group dragonboat team "Dragon Breath" in 2006, I have become addicted to the sport. You will see me on the Root River May through September. On my days off, I do volunteer gardening as a Master Gardener both at the Racine Visitors Center and at the Pioneer Garden in Burlington.
I am very fortunate to be a part of the caring family at Spring Dental Group. I graduated from Marquette University in 1992 with a BS in dental hygiene and have been in the dental field for 23 years. I have spent the last 18 years at Spring Dental Group. I strive to provide the best care and support I can for the total health of my patients. I enjoy helping my patients achieve a beautiful healthy smile!
My husband, Eric, and I live here in Racine with our three boys, Ethan, Ryan, and Mason. We love to spend time on our boat as a family and are always looking for our next place to visit! When I am not at Spring Dental Group or home, I spend time with my boys at school and on the soccer field.
Hi, my name is Melissa. I am fairly new to the Spring Dental family and serve our patients as an appointment coordinator. I have an associate's degree as an administrative assistant which allows me to use every tool possible to set a professional, organized, and welcoming tone in our office. I have come to enjoy getting to know our patients and love that they share their lives with us. We are committed to offering a unique and knowledgeable experience to our patients that begins the moment you walk in the door and continues through the very best in oral care.
Outside of the office I enjoy spending time with my 3 amazing children. We enjoy cooking together, doing crafts, having movie nights, and going on adventures. I also enjoy reading and going to concerts.
Hi, my name is Elizabeth, treatment coordinator with Dr. Lamberton. I am proud to say that I have been part of the Spring Dental family for eighteen years now. Not only do I have the enjoyment of working with a talented and dedicated group of professionals, but best of all, I get to meet and assist all the patients within the practice. My job involves scheduling appointments, treatment planning, making financial arrangements, handling insurance inquiries, and corresponding with specialist offices. What I like best about my job is being a part of a belief system that is committed to excellence, equality, and education. Witnessing the patients reactions to their cosmetic results is simply the icing on the cake.
Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with family and friends.
Hey! I am Caren and I have been with Spring Dental Group since February 2008. I am very much a people person and love helping to meet the needs of our patients as an appointment coordinator. I really enjoy getting to know our patients and appreciate how frequently they share their lives with us. I especially love those moments when patients who have come fearful of dentistry, leave our office with a whole new outlook as their fears have been put to rest.
When I am not in the office, I love to hang out with my husband, Joe, and two boys, Chris and Alex. I also love riding motorcycles, sitting by my pool, shopping, and spending time with friends.
Hi, my name is Cherie, treatment coordinator for Dr. Murphy. I have worked in dentistry since high school, spending 20 years with Dr. Murphy and eight years in an orthodontic office. I enjoy serving our patients in any way that can make their experience with us pleasant. I feel privileged to build lasting relationships with our patients and their families. I love people and now feel strangers are only friends I have never met.
When out of the office, I enjoy taking motorcycle trips with my husband. Our favorite time is spending Sunday morning in church service with our two daughters and then having brunch together.
My name is Mindy and Iβm the treatment coordinator for Dr. Hammes. I have been in the dental profession for over 12 years, and a part of the Spring Dental team for 8 years. I love helping patients achieve their dental goals and maintaining their overall dental health. I also love being a part of the Spring Dental Group family because they give patients all the knowledge they need to make the best decisions, while treating everyone as an individual.
I am married and a mother of two small children; one boy and one girl. My favorite activities are family walks and trips to indoor water parks, particularly in Wisconsin Dells.
Hi! I am Marty; I have been a member of Spring Dental Group for many years, during which I have served in scheduling patient care, answering insurance questions, spiffying up the office and some chairside assisting. I enjoy greeting and welcoming our patients to our office and I am told I make a mean cup of coffee.
In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, family, and I love to travel.
Hi, my name is Sarah. I have been a dental assistant at Spring Dental Group since 1998 and bring with me over eleven years of professional experience.

The best part of my job is making a connection and building lasting relationships with our patients. Outside of the office, I enjoy cooking, learning to sew, and spending time with my husband and two daughters.
