Meet Dr. Sherri Poettker, DMD

I consider myself extremely lucky to practice dentistry! There are so many aspects of my dental career that make it wonderful including making a positive impact on my patient’s lives. I love being able to create the perfect smile that someone has always dreamed of and seeing what a difference a bright smile can make in my patients' lives. I also look forward to meeting new people and having them become a part of my extended family at Lakeside Dental. We have a wonderful team at Lakeside Dental that is truly compassionate and strives for excellence at every opportunity. It's a joy to work alongside each and every team member.
