A Word from Dr. Waldau:
I feel as though patients need to be very engaged in their healthcare decisions in order to have the most desirable outcome. I want my patients to be honest with me about what their dental care need is, how it impacts their life, and how they want it to change. In return, my staff and I are very honest with our patients about their options.
I don’t believe my role is to tell my patients what to do. I think my role is to provide as much education and information as they need to choose between the different options available. Then my staff and I can take care of them in a manner that meets their needs physically, emotionally and financially.
Providing excellent, customized and comprehensive care in a friendly, relaxed environment is my goal and my commitment.
Service & Volunteering:
I volunteer for Health Care Network, Give Kids A Smile and Wisconsin Mission of Mercy providing dental care to those who are least able to afford it.
When I am not practicing or spending time with my wife and three kids, I enjoy camping, fishing, cooking and enjoying the Wisconsin outdoors!

“I came in for a cleaning. Holly was the hygienist that took care of me. She was fantastic. The cleaning was very thorough and painless. She seemed genuinely interested in my dental hygiene habits and provided me with helpful tips to improve. I’m not sure anyone really looks forward to a dentist visit, however I am not dreading my next one. Thanks again.”

“It was a great visit. I felt very relaxed and welcomed. From check-in through leaving, it was very good. The whole staff made it an easy and painless experience.”
“The doctor was very professional and made me relax, not worry, and it was pain free.”
— Dewayne P.
“Oh, the horror stories one can hear about root canals, but my experience with Dr. Waldau and my root canal was completely different. He made sure I was comfortable and at ease, let me know to call right away if something went wrong. There was minor discomfort when the numbing medication wore off, but I did not feel a single thing during it. Thank you Dr. Waldau!!”
“The whole environment is warm. Dr. Waldau made me feel secure and explained to me everything he was going to perform in advance, which is really important to me.”
