Meet the Staff



My name is Raquel and I am a dental hygienist. I have worked at Spring Dental Group for six years. I started out as a dental assistant where I realized my passion for the dental field. I graduated from Milwaukee Area Technical College in 2012 with an Associate's Degree in Dental Hygiene. My goals are to fully serve our patients, as well as provide information and techniques on maintaining great oral health.

Outside of the office, I find myself spending most of my time enjoying the company of my family and friends.





Hi I am Kathy. I have been an appointment coordinator at Spring Dental Group since December 2013 and worked in healthcare for many years prior. My favorite part of coming into work is meeting and seeing all of our patients.

 Outside of work I enjoy planning the next trip to go on with my husband and son as well as looking for new recipes to try. 




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 and I live in Racine. We have a daughter, son, and two granddaughters. 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. 




It is my pleasure to be a part of the Spring Dental Group family. I currently work with the wonderful patients of Dr. Murphy as his Treatment Coordinator. I started with Spring Dental in January of 2012 and have been in the dental field since 1990. I have worked in many facets of the dental industry. My goal is to always greet our patients with a warm smile while providing professionalism and compassionate treatment. It is truly rewarding taking part in giving our patients a beautiful smile.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 3 children, family, and friends. I enjoy being active and involved as a volunteer with my church and community. As for my hobbies, I love traveling, reading, watching old movies, gardening, and canning.




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 26 years. I have spent the last 21 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 at our cottage 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 their school and on the soccer field.




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.




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. I assist Dr. Murphy in all general procedures and oral health. The most rewarding part of my job is building lasting relationships with our patients and making a difference in the lives of people.

In my spare time, outside the office, I enjoy playing softball, volleyball, and traveling with my fiance.




My name is Cynthia; I have worked at Spring Dental Group since June 2007 and in the medical field since 1998. As an appointment coordinator, I will be one of the first friendly staff members you will meet at Spring Dental Group. You will often hear me laughing and joking with patients and coworkers. 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.




Hello, my name is Brittnie and I am a dental assistant. I came to Spring Dental Group August of 2014 and I assist Dr. Murphy. I attended the University of Wisconsin-Parkside for a couple of years; and then transferred to Alabama State University, where I received my Bachelors of Science Degree in Biology. With that, I will excel in the profession of Dentistry and take all that I have learned and all that I am gaining from working with a group of exceptional people here at Spring Dental. I believe that it’s important to do what you love and I am fortunate to be surrounded by others who share the same passion as I do; which is providing oral health education and care for our patients.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and traveling.
