about OUR OFFICE

Our Mission

At Lakeview Modern Dentistry, our mission is simple. We aim to provide a full scope of services at the highest level of quality to patients of all ages. We combine the latest technology with a “listen first” philosophy, getting to know each of our patients personally and customizing their dental experience to maximize comfort and minimize stress.

Dr. Kevin DeGroot

Growing up in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Dr. Kevin became interested in dentistry at an early age. His experiences at the dentist’s office inspired him: he knew he wanted to help people and that he could do it through dentistry. With encouragement and support from his family, he headed to Marquette University in Milwaukee for both his undergraduate degree and dental school. After graduating dental school, he headed to the city of Madison with his wife, Katelin, and worked as an associate dentist for several years. Eventually, he decided that he wanted to take patient care into his own hands and made the jump to open his own practice with the belief that excellent dental care should be accessible to everyone.

When he’s not in the office, Dr. Kevin enjoys spending time with his family. He is a proud father to two young children. They are the light of his life and he feels rewarded to be their dad and watch them grow everyday. Dr. Kevin also loves to bring his family to the great outdoors. He loves to finish off a long day of hunting, biking, or hiking with a stop by a local craft brewery for a tasting.

Dr. Courtney Wessell

Dr. Courtney grew up in Wausau, Wisconsin. At an early age, she discovered her passion for art, science, and nutrition. After shadowing her own dentist, she realized dentistry encompasses all of the above while being able to help people. She attended the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay for her undergraduate degree in human biology and then attended Marquette University School of Dentistry for dental school. Dr. Courtney joined Lakeview Modern Dentistry in 2023.

In her free time, Dr. Courtney enjoys exploring the city of Madison with her husband. They both love the outdoors, biking, and spending time at their family cottage in northern Wisconsin. Dr. Courtney also loves spending time in the kitchen and trying out new recipes!
