Pa Fischer, RDH  “I am proud to be working with Bridging Brighter Smiles to help connect children to dental care with ease.  It is an honor to not only serve children who don’t have dental homes, but also those in my community.  I hope to spark motivation in them and take initiative in their oral hygiene for better oral and overall health.  Currently, I live on French Island with my husband, our three awesome kids, and cat Elvis.  Being a mother of three young, busy little bodies doesn’t leave much for hobbies, but when I get the chance, I enjoy some gardening, sewing, photography, and attempting DIY arts and craft projects.”

It is an honor to be a part of the Bridging Brighter Smiles team, serving my community as well as surrounding communities! I am passionate about the work I do and knowing I’m providing care to many children who would otherwise not have access makes it all worth it! My husband and I live on our hobby farm in the Northwoods with our 3 children and 2 dogs. Being a Mom is my everything! Our 3 boys keep me on my toes and in return they have to deal with my love for photography and always getting their pictures taken. Our family loves spending time outdoors doing anything and everything from camping to fishing to hiking and everything in between.

I am so excited to be a part of the De Plaquers team for Bridging Brighter Smiles to be able to service the friends and classmates of my children in the Kewaunee County area and surrounding districts. Through my many years in private practice, I have seen a great need to service the children at risk in our communities and I look forward to giving them a wonderful dental experience. Working with kids has always been my passion, so I am excited to be part of a program that addresses that need.”

Working with the children and young adults has brought me a range of emotions from hopes of being able to do more, laughter at what some of the kids do and/or say and satisfaction knowing what BBS, myself and my assistant Sarah are able to bring to the community.”

Michelle Perry, Dental Assistant

“I’m married with two children and two grandchildren who are my world. In my previous career of 30 years, I worked as a purchasing agent/manager and office manager. I decided to slow things down and enjoy life a bit more so I became a nanny and realized how much I love working with children. As we recently made the move to Wisconsin from Florida, I was excited to be offered the opportunity to work for Bridging Brighter Smiles. The bonus is having summers off to spend with family, out of town.”
