Kelly Butzen

Office Administrator

I have enjoyed being an office administrator for Dr. Kugia since 2013.  One of the many things I love about my job is assisting our patients with their insurance questions and helping anyway I can.  Outside of the office, I love to cook for my family and try new vegan recipes.  

Deborah McKee, R.D.H.

Dental Hygienist

I'm excited to be the newest hygiene addition to Dr. Nicholas Kugia's team.  Although I have been in the dental field for the last 5 years, I recently graduated from Rock Valley College with a degree in dental hygiene in spring of 2016.  What I love about my job is building relationships and helping patients achieve the best oral health possible.  Outside of work I enjoy boating and spending time with my Husband, family, and friends.

Sigrid Fudge

Dental Assistant

I have been assisting Dr. Nicholas Kugia since October 1998.  I love helping patients to be comfortable and relaxed.  It is my pleasure to help patients regain a healthy smile again.  I was born and raised in the Bavarian region of Germany.  I moved to the states when I married my husband.  I have two adult daughters and will soon be a grandparent.  I enjoy kayaking and walking in the summer

Kerri Garcia

Dental Assistant

I have been apart of Dr. Nicholas Kugia's team since 2011 and in the dental industry since 2010.  I graduated from the First Institute with a Dental Assisting certificate in October 2011.  I love having the opportunity to educate patients about their oral health and assist in restoring them back to health.  Afterwork, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children.  When I'm not with my family, I enjoy sewing and crafting.
