Our doctors are welcoming new patients.
We would like to introduce the newest member of our dental family, Dr. Emily Thompson. She joined us in the summer of 2016 after completing her Advanced Education General Dentistry (AEGD) residency with the Milo C. Huempfner VA Dental Clinic in Green Bay, WI. She is excited to continue her service to her hometown community of Green Bay.
Many of you may already know Dr. Emily Thompson as she often assisted our doctors while she earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Minnesota – School of Dentistry. This experience developed a strong treatment philosophy that is similar to ours and brought us a wealth of leading edge knowledge in return.
Dr. Thompson has committed many hours to stay educated on the latest advancements in dentistry. She is a member of the associations listed below.
Dr. Thompson still continues to find balance outside the dental clinic through travel, exercise, and spending time outdoors. She has also been a frequent volunteer for the WDA’s Mission of Mercy events held in Wisconsin and Minnesota, Oral Health Partnership (OHP), as well as accompanying the medical missions to Haiti with The Friends of Haiti organization.

All of our doctors have established deep roots in the Green Bay community and Dr. Pat is no exception. Along with constantly expanding his own knowledge base, he works closely with other programs to share his knowledge and talents. Dr. Maraka volunteers with the Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) Dental Assisting program, providing dental care to patients of the clinic while training new dental assistants in their field. He also provides dental services to the Brown County and Door County jail systems.
