Meet Dr. Laura J. Funke
Dr. Laura J. Funke was basically raised in this dental office, so our patients are very near and dear to her heart. She feels that a great dentist not only excels at technique, but has the ability to genuinely make patients feel comfortable. Because of her desire to connect with patients on a personal level, she obtained a B.A. in Psychology at Wake Forest University in 2003. She then decided to continue the family tradition of dentistry, earning her D.M.D. degree from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry in 2008. She has been practicing dentistry with her father Dr. James Funke ever since, and has flourished tremendously in the practice that her grandfather started almost 100 years ago. Her patients enjoy her calm, yet confident demeanor and fondly refer to her as “Dr. Laura”.
A young dentist with a grasp of the most innovative, minimally invasive new procedures, Dr. Laura is dedicated to lifelong learning through continuing education courses. Dr. Laura specializes in cosmetic dentistry and continues to learn the most innovative techniques, such as using BOTOX® to not only get rid of unwanted facial wrinkles, but as a means to alleviate jaw pain as well. She is a member of the American Dental Association, Wisconsin Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, Greater Milwaukee Dental Association, American Academy of Facial Esthetics and American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Through a combination of state-of-the-art technology, sensible treatment plans and genuine devotion to each patient, Dr. Jim and Dr. Laura preserve healthy teeth and gums, alleviate oral discomfort and improve the appearance of smiles on a daily basis.
Dr. Laura currently resides in Milwaukee, WI with her husband Trent. They have a son named James, a daughter named Pippa and a miniature schnauzer named Mari. In her free time, Dr. Laura enjoys reading, traveling and spending time with her family.
