Meet the Team


Scheduling Coordinator

Denise, who mans the front desk, is often the first to welcome patients to our office with a warm, and friendly smile.  She fields questions about our patient's needs and concerns as well as scheduling their appointments.  Along with welcoming new patients, she enjoys catching up with those who have visited us for years.

Denise and her husband have two children.  Her family also includes various pets, grand-pets, and the newest addition a beautiful grand-daughter.  In her free time, she enjoys kayaking, fishing on their pontoon boat, wildlife watching, playing cards and board games, spending time at her cabin, four-wheeling, snowmobiling, and relaxing by her pond.



Office Manager

Debbie assists Dr. Gernetzke with patient care, manages the treatment coordinators, works with the insurance companies to get the most for our patients, and assists with collecting patient payments. She also loves getting to know people; if Debbie doesn’t know you when you visit our office, you can bet she will get to know you before you leave!

At home, she enjoys spending time with her husband and catching up with her two sons and daughter. Her family also includes her three granddaughters, as well as one big, fat cat and one sassy kitten.

In her downtime, Debbie likes to play cards, go fishing, and seeing what her friends are up to via Facebook.



Dental Hygienist

Becky graduated from Parker High School and received her Dental Hygienist Certification from Madison College. 

Becky loves being part of a team that works together to give patients a healthy, beautiful smile and helps them maintain it for a lifetime. Our patients appreciate and praise her ability to make them feel at ease in the dental chair while educating and motivating them to take better care of their teeth and gums at home.  Little kids also enjoy her fun and silly demeanor when she "tickles" their teeth.

Becky enjoys baking and spending time with her husband and daughter.



Treatment Coordinator

Carly joined our team in May of 2017.  She graduated Parker High School in 2016, and from the Dental Assisting program at Blackhawk Technical College in 2017. 

Carly loves basketball and being with friends and family in her free time.  She has brought a new intensity to our team that helps the old staff feel like they are young again.  Getting to see the transformation of the patients is what drives her to provide the best service possible.  "When people come in reserved and shy because of their smile, then leave bold and rejuvenated, that is why I love my job." 



Treatment Coordinator

Anna graduated from Parker High School (Janesville) in 2014, and then from Blackhawk Technical College (Janesville) from the Dental Assisting Program in 2017.

As an only child, she enjoys spending her time with family, friends, and her boyfriend Erick. In the summer you can find her at the drag races or car shows. In the winter she enjoys cuddling with her dog, cat, and rabbit.

She loves coming into work because there is always something new to learn. She also loves meeting new people and making new friends while simultaneously helping there smile look great.  


Mary Ann 


Mary Ann has been here from the beginning. As the wife and business partner of Dr. John, she has been instrumental in the success of the office. 

She is heavily involved in raising her family of six kids, and yet still finds the time to do the accounting. When she gets free-time she loves to play piano and sing. 



Business Manager

Growing up as Dr. Johns son, Peter never really thought of being in the family business. He graduated from UW-Madison with a degree in marketing and communications and immediately entered the agricultural field as an agronomist in Eau Claire. 

After getting engaged he and his fiancé decided to move back to Evansville. At that point, he decided to put his business knowledge to good use to help grow the office. 

In his time off, Peter enjoys outdoor activities, sports, woodworking, and social outings with his friends and family.
