I and my office staff are committed to bringing you the finest and latest in dental care in a very modern setting. In 2006 we moved into our completely remodeled dental office. We now occupy the entire second floor of our building; it has elevator and handicap access. The office has a light and cheerful look. Several people have commented that it is the nicest dental office in Lake Tahoe. I have furnished my office with artwork, most of it from Lake Tahoe artists.

Our office is the only dental office in Lake Tahoe offering two new dental developments: Perio Protect and Homeoblock.

I have been working for Dr. Wenck since 2010 and my goal is to make every patient feel as comfortable as possible. I love how they become more confident showing their beautiful smile after getting treatment from Dr. Wenck. I love to spend time with my family especially with my daughter , being outdoors and experiencing new adventures. My toddler is two and takes up most of my energy, when I am at home.
