Our Practice Philosophy

Mosinee Smiles is committed to keeping individualized patient care at the center of everything we do. Our staff always works to keep patients fully informed of all of their treatment options, and we will never pressure you into any service or procedure. Whenever possible, we will work to preserve your existing teeth. From the moment you enter our office, you will be welcomed and treated as a member of our family, and we will never deliver care or advice we wouldn’t give to our own families. We believe that dental decisions should be clear and transparent, and in every case we endeavor to educate patients on everything we do, from procedures to billing. We believe that dentistry should be pain free, and our skilled staff and gentle methods help to ensure that’s the case. We believe that healthy smiles lead to healthier, happier lives.

Eric Umhoefer, DDS

Dr. Eric Umhoefer is originally from Neenah, Wisconsin. After graduating from Neenah High School, he went on to graduate Magna Cum Laude from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Certificate of Excellence in Stem Cell Sciences. He then followed this by earning his DDS from Marquette University School of Dentistry. Dr. Eric always knew he wanted to do something to help people in the healthcare field, as his mother was a nurse and his father was an emergency room doctor. After shadowing his dad in the hospital, Dr. Eric appreciated the opportunity for providers to fix acute problems to help patients feel better, but it seemed to lack the opportunity to get to know and form long-lasting relationships with patients. He enjoys that dentistry allows him to form that close, long-term relationship he hoped for, as well as the chance to utilize his hands and to problem solve. Dr. Eric believes in building mutual trust, respect, communication, and understanding to properly treat patients with attentive and compassionate care.

Bernadette – Dental Hygienist

Bernadette, one of our talented dental hygienists, grew up in a tradition of dental care. Being the daughter of our dentist, Dr. Knoedler, gave her a sense of what working in this field is all about, and she has enjoyed carrying on this family legacy in Mosinee. Bernadette was actually born in Rota, Spain, as her father was stationed at that U.S. naval base during the time. After moving back to Mosinee, she graduated from Mosinee High School and went on to earn her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from the University of Minnesota. Bernadette has served our patients since 2005, and her flexibility of schedule has allowed her to work different times each week depending on the office needs. Some of the things she enjoys best about being a hygienist are helping patients find confidence in their oral health and become proud of how they feel when they smile. She particularly enjoys working in and serving our Mosinee community because patients become friends in a smaller community. Outside of work, Bernadette enjoys reading, spending time on the lake, and being a basketball coach.
