Meet The Team


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. 


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 have been on the Spring Dental Group team for 35 years. I graduated from Marquette University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. I am an active member of the American Dental Hygiene Association and have done many hours of continuing education. Receiving a smile or smiling at someone can brighten your day. I get great pleasure from helping patients achieve their healthiest smile possible.

Outside of work I am a member of the Racine Dragonboat club, Racine / Kenosha Master Gardeners, WI Go Hiking Club, and Ice Age Trail segment hikers.
