Doctor's Folly - Doc

Doc, Dr J’s family/bird dog, comes to work every day with a smile on his face.  He has only been with the practice since 2010 so he is still a newbee.  His job entails socializing with many of our patients and delivery people and enriching the day for the rest of the staff.  He spends most of his day sleeping in Dr. J’s office but comes out to greet some of his favorite people. Several patients bring him treats and ask to stop by and visit him before leaving. Sometimes we think people just come by to see him.

Teresa has been a dental assistant for over 35 years. We always joke that she came with the fixtures as she worked with Dr. Brzoska in this practice before Dr. J took over in 2003.  She received her original certification from the Kansas City School of Dental Assisting and has also passed the Dental Assistant National Board certification.  Teresa is a valued member of our dental team and she has developed many friendships with patients over the years. Teresa and her husband have three grown children, she spends time with them whenever she can. Teresa enjoys working out, reading and spending time outdoors.
