Meet Dr Mc.Donald's Staff
Laura joined Dr. McDonald’s team in 2016 when she started her career as a dental assistant. She feels privileged to work with such a great team that strives to give the best care to our patients. Our patients are the greatest, and She enjoys getting to know each and every one of them.
Laura is from Nekoosa but is now currently living in Wisconsin Rapids with her new husband, Naul. They enjoy spending time with family and friends and going to the movies. In her free time, Laura likes to bake/cook, travel, and go shopping
Amanda graduated from North Central Technical College in 2009, and after 3 years of working as a hygienist, she finally found her “home” with Riverhill Dental in 2012. Amanda is thankful for her career in dental hygiene and finds her job to be very rewarding.
While she does love her job when Amanda’s not at work most of her free time is spent having fun with her loving husband, two amazing children, and two dogs. They enjoy camping, anything outdoors, and watching the Green Bay Packers of course!
Skye joined our team at Riverhill this past November. Like Dr. McDonald, She was born and raised here in Wisconsin Rapids. Skye graduated from the Weekend Dental Assisting School in Appleton. One of Skye’s favorite things about being an assistant is being part of a variety of different procedures throughout the day. Making her patients experience as enjoyable and comfortable as possible is very important to her.
When she’s not at work, you’re likely to find her outdoors. She loves fishing, four wheeling, and horseback riding. Skye loves spending time with family and friends. She appreciates nice weather and time with her dog, Teddy, too.
Dawn graduated from Madison Area Technical College in 1984. Her first job was at the Marshfield Dental Clinic and then here at Riverhill 1986-1991. Making a big move to Southern California in 1991, she continued her hygiene career there along with raising 5 boys. Dawn returned to Wisconsin in 2015 to be near her grandchildren (now 3 of them) and was very excited to return to Riverhill Dental and join our team in October 2017.She loves being back in Wisconsin and the outdoors- especially during the fall and hunting season. Her week is split working with our team and taking care of and loving on her grandchildren! She is an avid reader and loves taking photographs of nature, buildings and her grandkids. She really enjoys spending time with her family and her future husband Jack, with whom she was reunited in 2015, after 30 years apart. Dawn loves people and enjoys all the patients she has the privilege of caring for working on our team.
