Julie, Business Manager
Dentistry is making great strides and excellent advancements in materials and technology every day. We at Heitke and Vu have been working hard as a team to provide the best possible dentistry to our patients. My job as business manager involves working with the Heitke and Vu team on a daily basis, to keep our office running smoothly while maintaining our excellent, friendly patient care. I enjoy being outdoors bicycling, kayaking, and traveling with my husband, Mark.
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 reading and gardening in my free time.
Cheryl, Dental Assistant
I will be celebrating 32 years, spring of 2020. I have to say that the time has flown by quickly. I grew up on a farm in Brooklyn, Iowa. My family still lives in the area. I moved to the Badger state in 1981, first to Stevens Point, then to Madison in 1988. My husband, Todd and I bought a one-room schoolhouse 21 years ago near Brooklyn, Wisconsin. It has truly been a labor of love. Living close to the Sugar River, you will find me riding down the bike trail, boating down the river, or walking my dog Gretta. But my favorite place to be is on my ATV. I am active in several ATV clubs and find ourselves spending most of our vacation time at different ATV riding destinations. I also enjoy my time as a “big sister” with the big brother/sister program. It has been my pleasure to get to know our patients throughout these past years. I enjoy working downtown. The practice is unique both inside and out as well as the doctors and staff. It’s great to hear out patients say “Best Experience Ever!”
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 possible.
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.
Debora, Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been working in dentistry for many years helping people keep their beautiful smiles. I started my career in Brazil; I am fluent in Portuguese and Spanish. I think working at Dr's Heitke and Vu has been a perfect match for me. It is an environment where I can provide quality care and promote optimal oral health. My goal is to keep helping patients feel comfortable during their treatment.
Jessie, Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been a Dental Hygienist since 1999. I enjoy helping people feel comfortable and at home here at Heitke & Vu's Dental office. I am originally from the Neenah-Menasha area and now live in Oregon with my husband, daughter and furry baby Tasha Dog! I enjoy camping, animals, reading, baking and family time.
Kristi, Registered Dental Hygienist
I have lived in the Madison area for most of my life and love it here. I have been a registered Dental Hygienist since 2001. I enjoy all aspects of working in the dental office. I really love working with all of our patients, the doctors and other staff members at Heitke & Vu. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming!
