Julie, Business Manager
I love the people at Isthmus Dental. We work hard as a team to provide the best possible dentistry to our patients. My job as business manager involves working with the Isthmus Dental team on a daily basis, to keep our office running smoothly while maintaining our excellent, friendly patient care.

Kaitlyn, Front Desk – Reception
I enjoy working the front desk; getting to know our patients and helping them schedule their next appointment. We truly have a wonderful staff here and we do our best to accommodate our patient’s needs. I enjoy time with my family, reading, camping and gardening in my free time.
Amber, Front Desk – Reception
I grew up in Madison & really enjoy living here! I want to give all of our clients the friendly, quality customer care that they deserve. When I am not in the office I like to spend time with friends and family, my two cats and reading.
Heidi, Dental Assistant
I started working as a dental assistant while in the program at MATC. I worked in the Windsor/Waunakee area for eight years before coming to this awesome practice. I have always felt very at home here with great doctors, co-workers, patients and location. I grew up in a small, rural area north or Madison and have always lived in the surrounding area. Most of my free time I enjoy spending with family and friends, riding horses, riding my Harley, watching movies or just enjoying “down time.” I actually enjoyed going to the dentists growing up, I guess bringing me to this profession. I try to help put patients at ease during treatment and try to make it the best possible experience for them.
Salvador, Dental Assistant
I joined Isthmus Dental in the spring of 2022. I grew up in Mexico and earned my dental degree from The Michoacán University of San Nicolás of Hidalgo Faculty of Dentistry. I am thrilled to be meeting so many nice people while gaining more experience in the dental field here at Isthmus Dental. I am committed to providing the highest quality care to our patients. I really enjoy living and working downtown. I like to travel, meet people and discover good restaurants in my free time.
Jamie, Registered Dental Hygienist
I started working as a dental assistant while I was in school, but once I graduated from Hygiene, I joined this office and have never looked back. I love working here and have grown to appreciate my patients, staff, the doctors, and our lovely downtown location. Originally from Janesville, Wisconsin, my parents and family still live in the area. I have lived in Madison since 2002. I have a bichon mix puppy named Symon Michael, named after Michael Symon from the Food Network! Needless to say, I enjoy cooking, and have even done some catering for events on the side. I spend a lot of my free time with friends and family. I stay busy by playing volleyball, kickball, and by walking Symon. I also love watching the Badgers, Brewers and Packers. I hope to remain active in the community by volunteering and continuing to provide the best care for my patients. I know that going to the dentist is not everyone's favorite thing to do, but I hope to make the experience as enjoyable as possible. You should walk away from our visits feeling good about your dental health, and knowing how to make your overall dental health even better.
