Donica has been an essential member of Dr. Bosacker’s team for 30 years; 20 years as a dental assistant and 10 years as a hygienist. She also assists Dr. Bosacker in managing the staff and practice.

Aside from being an excellent and caring hygienist, another area of dentistry where Donica really shines is in developing relationships with our patients. She finds it fun visiting with them about their lives — their work, family, fun trips, and hobbies. “It’s important to us that our patients feel comfortable, cared for and respected. When patients come to us they can trust that we will do our very best to take good care of them.”

Donica is married with two grown children and two lovely grandchildren. Her interests outside of work include horseback riding, downhill skiing, and traveling with friends. Donica also likes to read and is a member of a book club.

Van Gundy, RDA

Danielle graduated from Des Moines Area Community College in 2010 with a degree in Dental Assisting and General Studies.
As the freshest face to our team, Danielle is pleased to have found the working environment she hoped for: “a boss and co-workers who act like a family and who get along well … that is exactly what Team Bosacker is.” Danielle feels this component of the practice is very important. “Being able to communicate with each other creates a pleasant environment for our patients as well.”

Danielle would like patients to know this about Dr. Bosacker’s dental practice: “Dr. Bosacker does very well explaining treatment needs and options to each patient. He’s always open to questions or concerns and tries to explain in ways the patient can understand.” “And every person on the team works to build a relationship with the patient so that they are as comfortable as they can be.”

Having grown up in Decorah, Iowa, Danielle is currently having fun getting to know the Lake Mills community. Married with two sons, Danielle likes to spend her free time camping, walking, reading, doing home improvements, and traveling to see family who live out of town.

Joyce Hauge

Joyce’s is the smile you hear on the phone and then see greeting you warmly from behind the desk. In Joyce’s care our patients are treated with respect and kind consideration of all their needs. Whether related to scheduling of treatment or payment, Joyce takes delight in visiting with our patients to find what works best for them.

Joyce’s positive outlook and her fun sense of humor is a daily encouragement to our entire staff as well as to our patients. Joyce just brightens the day!

“I really enjoy seeing Dr. Bosacker’s patients that I remember from working here 25+ years ago. And my hope is that our office environment is both professional and fun.”

Joyce and her husband, Tim live in Northwood. Her interests include reading, walking, and cars … old vehicles and new ones … and classic cars.

Stacy takes great satisfaction in helping patients know they can trust us. She excels at setting them at ease. “It’s not unusual for some patients to arrive at our office feeling a little anxious and we do everything we can to make sure they know we are really, truly interested in them and their lives. I love watching a patients’ face light up when we ask them questions about the things they care about.”
