Dear Patients of Rock River Dental,

What a crazy year this has been!  I know all of us are looking forward to getting a fresh start to the new year and saying goodbye to 2020.

I want to thank all of you for your patience and kindness throughout the year.   After being shut down, it took several months to get caught back up to get everyone back to their routine appointments.  We are so thankful that you have continued to trust us in caring for you and keeping you safe during your visits with us. We have had many compliments and kind words of gratitude for our service. It has made us feel good to know that our efforts are worthwhile as we continually strive to go above and beyond for you.  So thank you for choosing us!  I always say that we have the best patients around, and that is the truth!

As many of you know, Lu officially retired on December 31st. She has been a mainstay at our office and has helped so many of you work out financial arrangements and give you her best knowledge about your insurance coverage and help those who don’t have insurance to join our dental savings plan.  Lu has been with me since I started out of dental school, working as an associate in 1999 and then taking over the practice in 2000.  She had worked with the previous owners since 1972.  I can’t say enough about Lu’s kind heart and her years of dedication and service to Rock River Dental.  It will take quite some time to get used to her not being at her desk, and she will be greatly missed.  We wish her all the best in her retirement!

Our team will continue to help you the way that Lu always did.  Connie has transitioned from dental assisting to Lu’s position.  She has excellent dental knowledge not only clinically but from an administrative standpoint as well.  Courtney, who has had many years of service at the front desk, will continue to help you with your financial arrangements. Julie, our newest team member, will also be able to assist you with your needs.

I am so grateful for the hard-working team we have and am so proud that we can provide you with outstanding care.  Thank you once again for choosing us as your dental care providers and being a part of our family.

We wish you a happy and healthy 2021 and look forward to seeing you again soon. Happy New Year!

All my best,

Dr. Leslie Showalter

What’s Been Happening at RRD?

Have you seen the meme about 2020 that says: “2020 is a unique Leap Year. It has 29 days in February, 300 days in March, 5 years in April!” Yes, it has been quite a year, but we did manage to have some fun and celebrate many special people on our team!

Natalie (11 years) and Jamie (1 year) both celebrated October Anniversaries. Both of these ladies bring so much to our patients and our team!

In November, we celebrated Katie’s Birthday and welcomed a new team member, Stephanie!

In the spirit of giving, despite the pandemic, we were able to hold three of our favorite events- Halloween Candy Buy Back, Give A Vet A Smile Day, and our Annual Coat Drive.

We were able to ship five boxes of candy to our troops overseas through Operation Gratitude. Thank you to the kiddos who generously donated their candy!

Every year it gives us great pleasure to offer dental care to our veterans. This year we were able to help three veterans who were very much in need of dental care. We thank them for their past service, and it is our honor to give back to them!

Every year our Coat Drive gets bigger and bigger because of YOUR generosity. This year, we donated over 100 coats to the Jefferson County Foster Care Program and The Community Action Coalition! Thank you!

With so many going through hardships this year, we decided to hold our first-ever Food Drive. We continue to be in awe of the generosity of our patients and our community! With YOUR help, we were able to fill some shelves and gift $450 to the Fort Atkinson Food Pantry! Thank you!!

December brought both good and sad. The GOOD – Our office was filled with lots of goodies as we celebrated Dr. Showalter, Brooke, Courtney, and Jamie’s birthdays!

Rock River Dental earned Invisalign Gold Status Plus! What does that mean for you? That means that you get the best of the best when it comes to Invisalign treatment at Rock River Dental! We are the only dental clinic with the Gold Plus status in our area!

The SAD- We bid farewell to Lu as she is off to enjoy her retirement. The office will be a bit quieter without Lu’s infectious laugh. We will miss her dearly but are so happy for her and Doug to finally enjoy retirement together.
