Dr. Ryan Yakowicz
Hi! I am Dr. Ryan Yakowicz. I grew up in the greater Milwaukee area, and attended Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for my undergraduate and dental education.
I have been practicing dentistry since 2010. My first goal in treating patients is to establish a working relationship based on trust and an agreed upon course of action. I want my patients to have healthy, beautiful teeth that do what they are meant to do and will last them a long, long time. I strive to be conservative and detail oriented in my approach to providing excellent dental care; I want my patients to maintain their “original parts” for as long as they can! Obviously, there are times when I must intervene to establish healthy, functional teeth. My team and I strive to provide the best treatment options and care for our patients when treatment becomes necessary. My particular interests in dentistry include functional cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, endodontics, and treatment of TMJ disorders.
In my personal life, I love being out in the woods or on my fishing boat. I also enjoy film, golfing, cooking, and making beer. I am just as comfortable in the middle of the city as I am in a tree stand!
I thoroughly enjoy refining my skills and knowledge as a dentist and am very active in pursuing continuing education. I am a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, American Dental Association, Wisconsin Dental Association, Dane County Dental Society, Chicago Dental Society, and the Madison Dental Progress Forum Study Club. I look forward to meeting you!
Kathy – Dental Hygienist
I have worked at NS Belleville since 2006. I have been a Dental Hygienist for 15 years. I also was a Dental Assistant for 5 years. I received my Dental Hygiene degree from MATC in 1998, and my Dental Assistant certification from Blackhawk Technical College in 1985. I enjoy helping patients achieve and maintain healthy smiles.
I just celebrated my 25th wedding anniversary and we have two sons in college. Now that I am no longer “sitting on bleachers” I have more free time to spend with family and friends. I enjoy walking and yoga.
Kristen – Office Administrator
I have 15 years of experience in the dental field. My goal is to provide answers to all of our patients regarding dental insurance and financial options. I live on a small farm in beautiful Green County and if I can find any spare time that’s where you’ll find me – either in the garden, cooking, or helping in the barn.
Ally – Dental Assistant
I have been a dental assistant since 2008. I joined Neighborhood Smiles in December of 2014. I received my diploma in Advanced Dental Assisting from Blackhawk Technical College in Janesville, WI. I enjoy working in dentistry and helping people achieve and maintain a great smile.
My husband and I moved to New Glarus in 2010 after getting married. In our free time we enjoy walking our dog Killer, a five year old black lab. We also enjoy traveling, camping, fishing, and spending time with our families.
