I take great pride in our Mission Statement and I come to Kozak Orthodontics each day with a drive to make a difference. To me, it’s all about attitude. Life is much better when the outlook is positive.

My husband Fred and I have 3 amazing children; Caroline, Luca and Marco. I enjoy what they enjoy….golf, hockey, cross-country, traveling, theatre, and music. We are a very close and active family. We look forward to hiking in Arizona each year and spending our summers on the golf course. My passion in life is seeing them smile and find happiness in all that they do. I enjoy reading, cooking and working! Together, my husband and I enjoy wine tasting and entertaining our friends and family.

I live my life according to the Golden Rule. I also try to live well, laugh often and love much!

Smiles are contagious….let’s start an epidemic!

My biggest enjoyment in life is being with my family. As a family we enjoy going to the movies and spending time at our cabin up north. I love to cook and read. As a clinical Assistant at Kozak Orthodontics, I enjoy interacting with patients and their families. My goal each day is to put a smile on our patient’s faces and to make their visit a pleasant experience. I consider working at Kozak Orthodontics one of my biggest accomplishments. My other most important life achievements are my wonderful husband Kevin, my two beautiful daughters Kaylee and Kinley, and my awesome son Konner. Both my family and my career give my life fulfillment.

Casey P. - Clinical Manager

I joined Team Kozak back in 2002 and worked through 2004. I have since rejoined the team back in December 2009. During my time at home, I welcomed my two sons Jack and Max. My special time is spending it with them and my husband Josh. I also enjoy gardening, cooking, volleyball and doing anything outdoors.

I love working in a fast-paced learning environment that still allows me to enjoy a conversation with patients and their families. I really enjoy getting to know each of my patients and to hear about their day. That is just one of the reasons I really love working at Kozak Orthodontics.

I look forward to taking care of you in our clinic. Come back and enjoy a laugh with me…when you are laughing, you’re learning!

Stephanie M. - Clinical Assistant and Laboratory Specialist

I have been a proud part of the Kozak Orthodontic team since September of 2010. I love what I do! It brings me so much joy to help make a difference in someone’s life by giving them the smile of their dreams. You will often find me tucked away in the lab. But I must say, that is where I do my best work.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I strive to fill my life with laughter and warmth. Though I am very detail oriented and possibly a bit OCD, I try to never take life to seriously! After all, happiness and smiles are contagious!

As an Illinois native and hard core Bears fan I found it difficult crossing the border, but have found Kenosha to be a wonderful place to raise my family.

My husband and I have 3 awesome kids. We enjoy traveling, good food, live music, the outdoors and quality time with friends and family.

I joined Kozak Orthodontics in 2011 and discovered a passion for helping to build beautiful smiles!

Keri L. - Treatment Coordinator

The motto I live my life by is “Laughter is the Best Medicine!”

The apple of my eye is my daughter Olivia. We’ve shared my love of shoes since she was a toddler! My husband Kevin and I like movies (with popcorn of course) and music.

I love spending time with family and friends and enjoy floral arrangement workshops. I was born and raised in Kenosha and we like to travel to warm destinations.

I entered the dental field in 1995 as a registered dental hygienist. I joined the Kozak team to expand my dental knowledge and experience the orthodontic field. I love working with such a great team and helping all of our amazing patients anyway that I can! I have never had a job with such a fun environment, and I really enjoy coming to work each day.

Erika L. – Clinical Assistant

I've been a team member of Kozak Orthodontics since June 2016 but have been in the orthodontic field since 1998. I love seeing the changes that occur, not only in our patient's smiles, but also their self-esteem.

Having recently been married in 2016, I enjoy every minute I get to spend with my husband, step-son and our two dogs. You can usually find us watching nerdy movies or remodeling our new home. I also enjoy cooking, shopping, and when I make the time, working out!

Katie D.

I've worked in the dental field since 2002. I enjoy the opportunity it gives me to get to know patients and learn new things.

My husband, Chad, works as a mechanic on the family dairy farm. We have three sweet and adorable children, Kole, Kinzie and Keegan. My kids keep me incredibly busy with their energetic personalities so we are always outside playing, but in my spare time I love to sit and relax and read a book.

I love working at Kozak Orthodontics not only because of the fun and friendly atmosphere, but because I enjoy watching our patient's new smiles transform!

Kaylyn E. – Clinical Assistant

I started out at as a patient for Kozak Orthodontics and am thankful to now be part of such a wonderful, dedicated team that not only straightens teeth, but improves lives.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends more than anything. Whether it's playing, watching, or attending events, I really am interested in all kinds of sports. I love traveling and the outdoors, but equally appreciate time indoors relaxing while reading a good book or watching a good movie.

I believe life should be taken one step at a time, and with a smile on your face each step of the way! I hope to share a laugh with you at your visit!

Tammy B. – Financial Coordinator

I joined Kozak Orthodontics as Financial Coordinator in February of 2015.

Both my daughters were patients of Dr. Kozak and their experience inspired me to not only seek treatment for myself but to also join this wonderful team! I really enjoy working with our patients and parents by helping them through their orthodontic journey in our office to create beautiful smiles.

My joy in life is my husband, Joe and our two daughters, Jordyn and Jenna. I love anything that involves spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy biking, volleyball, and photography.

My words to live by are to always enjoy every day, the little things in life, and to be thankful in all circumstances.

What Our Patients Are Saying

"Thank you, Dr. Kozak, For making my children's smiles so fantastic. For fixing there teeth so that they are no longer self-conscious of there smiles. This is the first time in a long time that I've truly felt that "I've gotten my money's worth--and more". Dr. Kozak and his colleagues at Kozak Orthodontics exceeded my expectations 10 fold, while being a perfectionist with the eye of an artist and a stickler for detail my children's teeth are more beautiful than I could ever have expected . The team at Kozak Orthodontics takes the time to get to know there patients and develop a comfortable relationships with them. Visits are friendly and quick. Kozak Orthodontics offers incentives and rewards for good Orthodontic care. They also initiate fun contests for there patients throughout the year. And what more can you say about Dr. Kozaks staff. They make you feel that they are there for you and you leave feeling that you have known them for years even after the very first visit. Kozaks staff is more than just a team but as a group of good friends working together to make BIGGER SMILES!!!! After 9 years and two sets of braces I have one thing to say THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU ALL!!!"

David Blanchard

To the Team at Kozak Ortho, I'd first like to say, over the past 8 years, with my oldest daughter and now the past 2 years with my youngest daughter, your staff has been nothing but professional and it's been a pleasure to have you Dr. Kozak , and your wonderful staff to assist in creating unbelievable smiles for both of my daughters. The path with our oldest, has been long and trying and after 3 sets of braces and double madibular jaw surgery by your referred surgeon, the results have been remarkably worth it all! And to this day, Kayla still loves coming to see you all !! As far as my youngest, she wouldn't ever let the dentist near her, and then she found her oldest sisters ortho, and from the beginning was nothing but comfortable and anxious to get to her appointments and to get her "Kozak cash" for doing a good job! She just got her braces off in August 2011, and her smile is beautiful! For anyone who's hesitant about not knowing the Kozak team, I give you my word, there is no one I'd rather have spent all these years with. They have all become like family to us. Thank You, soo very much for all your care you have given my girls and I !

The Milliken Family

"My daughter was there earlier this week and had a great conversation with Casey, her technician. A few days later she received a card in the mail from her wishing her a great school year. Not only that but there were mentions of some of the personal topics they talked about. It really meant a lot to her and she was so excited!!! Thanks so much to Casey!!!!"
