Anthony Butchert, DDS
Proud member of: ADA, AADSM, AACP, and AAPM
Why have I spent most of my dental career studying TMJ and headache pain, diagnosis, and treatments and now sleep apnea?
Ever since my wife finished high school orthodontics, she suffered from headaches and clicking jaws. Although she had dental guards and bite balancing, not until her joint was treated non-surgically would the daily pain and clicking go away.
Two sibling dentists and TMJ specialists at two university dental schools could not eliminate her pain. Also, my dad was a lifetime snorer with sleep apnea. The tissue vibration caused by snoring contributed to his mouth cancer, which I found and he had removed. Fifteen years later in 2001, dad’s snoring and apnea contributed to his stroke that was caused by high blood pressure and triggered by his sleep apnea.
Modern dental devices are now available to treat mild to moderate sleep apnea without all the hoses of a CPAP machine. There are several dozens of designs to choose from. I can scientifically help choose and provide the most effective one for you.
Meeting new people and establishing relationships with patients is what Amanda enjoys the most about her job. The patients like her friendliness and her willingness to explain treatment to them in terms they can understand. Amanda has been in the dental field for close to eight years and enjoys learning new things about dental care every day.
Amanda and her husband, Marcus have two children, Trey and Taelyn, as well a Labrador dog named Raider. There is hardly a slow moment in their lives as the family is always on the go attending sporting events for the children or spending time boating, fishing, and camping with family and friends during the warmer months.
Originally from St. Cloud, MN., Meg attended Normandale College and has been a registered dental hygienist for many years. She moved to Eau Claire in the late 1980’s to further her hygiene career and to spend more time with her family.
Meg strives to ensure that her patients always feel 100% informed and comfortable during their visit. To her, there’s nothing more gratifying than educating and helping patients overcome their dental fears. Meg is certified in CPR, Nitrous Oxide and local anesthesia.
In her free time, Meg enjoys spending time with her daughters Maisey and Madeline. She also enjoys working at the Leinie Lodge, walking her dog Max and spending time with her family in MN.
Megan’s career in the dental field started after she graduated from Chippewa Valley Technical College with a Dental Assistant certification. Megan has been a part of the team at Lifetime Dental since April of 2017. You may see her in both the front office scheduling appointments and in the back office assisting Dr. Butchert.
Megan enjoys helping patients feel better about their dental care by providing a calm atmosphere and getting to know them on a more personal level.
When Megan is not at work, you can find her outdoors at the beach or kayaking.
Mary was graduated from Marquette University School of Dental Hygiene with a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene. She worked for many years as a hygienist with a short stint as a clinical instructor at the University of Minnesota where she also started to earn a master’s degree but never finished it to get married instead.
She has been married most of her life to a very patient, entertaining man who is also her best friend. Together they have two daughters, two grandsons, and two dogs. She enjoys ballroom dancing, needlework, reading, and re-upholstering furniture.
