Meet Dr. Brian Schroepfer
I get great personal reward for helping people achieve their smile success and maintain their overall health. I enjoy treating dental phobic and fearful patients and helping them overcome their dental anxiety and fear of the dentist. I also enjoy treating dental emergency patients and getting them out of pain.
In choosing the field of dentistry, I find that I am most passionate about the changes I am able to make in a person’s life. When they walk into my practice, I sometimes see a shy person who doesn’t open themselves up because they don’t like their appearance. When they see their results at the end of treatment, I see what a difference I have made in their life, as if they just gained a whole new perspective and boost of confidence. It is a fulfilling experience that is hard to put in words.

Outside the Office
As a native of Marinette, I am grateful to serve the community in which I was raised. My free time is spent enjoying the great outdoors; depending on the weather, I can often be found fishing, hunting, boating, snowmobiling, camping, or downhill skiing. I also have a strong passion for health and fitness, and enjoy lifting weights, swimming, biking, running, and competing in triatholons.
I also feel it is important to donate my time with the United Way, helping less-fortunate children learn about their dental care and providing my time to them for dental work. I have worked on thousands of veterans and military personnel performing dental exams and treatment.
