Cathy is Dr. John Ellenbecker's wife of 34 years. She entered the practice after raising their children Gabe, Kelly and Nick. Cathy may be the first person you come in contact with when calling or entering our Juneau dental clinic. She can explain how we try to use the patient’s assigned insurance benefits so there is less up front expense on the patient’s behalf. Cathy also handles the many issues encountered with insurance carriers after a claim has been filled. Her motive is to find the best option available to each individual patient considering their insurance contract benefits options. All patients will then remain financially responsible for the remaining bill for treatment. This dental clinic also accepts “Care Credit” financing for those who apply and qualify. For more information on billing just contact the office here.

He instructs in current methods of homecare to maintain optimum oral health. Frank is given ample time to perform prophys and periodontal treatment root planning/scaling and with anesthetic when necessary, as patient comfort is the main concern to this dental clinic. New patient exams are very comprehensive; beginning with health and dental history, x-rays, periodontal charting, exam and prophy to treatment planning. That plan is developed with patient involvement for the patient’s best interest. Together we will take into the consideration the risks, benefits and alternatives.
