Dr. Erin Winn

I am extremely honored and excited to join Dr. Spitz and the friendly team at Smiles In Motion. More importantly, I look forward to serving the children and families of Chippewa Falls and surrounding communities. As a college graduate of the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire, I have always had a strong desire to someday return to northwest Wisconsin and become an integral part in serving this community.

 

I grew up in Minocqua, WI and met my husband Daniel at Marquette University School of Dentistry. We enjoy everything Wisconsin has to offer!

 

I knew prior to my acceptance to dental school that my goal one day would be to provide high quality dental care for children of all ages and those with special needs. With continued education and training, I realized how truly rewarding it was to help ease dental fear and anxiety in children while promoting an understanding of the need for good oral health in a safe and comfortable environment. Helping to support and guide parents in decision making with their child’s dental care and serving in community programs are of utmost importance to me. Not only do I plan on being an advocate for children, but I hope to serve as a role model for the patients I treat.
