Lauren joined Bayshore Dental in June of 2020 to help launch our Sleep Apnea Program, Bayshore Sleep Solutionz. As our Sleep Coordinator, Lauren helps those suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea and CPAP intolerance, to find other alternatives through oral appliances. Lauren loves dentistry because she is able to help identify Sleep Apnea in dental patients who may have continued to go untreated. She strives to see our patients sleeping and feeling better.

Lauren recently got engaged, and will be getting married in the fall of 2021! In her free time, she loves traveling, crafting, and binge-watching shows/movies with her Fiancé Austin & 2 cats.

Your Hygiene Team


Gauri Mona Patel, D.D.S.

Debbie has been on Bayshore Dental’s Hygiene team for over 40 years! She graduated from Marquette University and has been a valuable mentor to the Hygiene Team. She absolutely loves all the relationships she has formed with her long-standing patients. There have been a lot of changes over the years, but what has not changed is the excellent care the whole team at Bayshore provides and the consistently dedicated hygienists that Debbie has worked with and so values. In her free time, Debbie loves to garden and take care of her grandchildren.


Gauri Mona Patel, D.D.S.

Meet Kristina a.k.a Tina! Originally from La Crosse, Wi, Tina moved to Milwaukee for college and graduated with her Bachelors at the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee. A few years after graduation and two root canals later, she decided to pursue a dental hygiene degree at MATC. (Fun fact: Tina and Micheal, Bayshore's other new hygienist, were the President and Vice President of their class!) While in school, Tina took up an interest in community dental, partnering with Smart Smiles to deliver over a thousand toothbrushes, toothpaste, and floss to local elementary schools. Now, her passion is all about getting patients excited about dental products and finding the right routine for each patient!

This fall, Tina bought her first house with her partner Sam and now lives in Greenfield with their dog, Bella.

What Michael loves about being a Hygienist at Bayshore Dental is being able to educate patients on the importance of their oral health and how it impacts their overall wellness.

Michael and his wife are looking forward to growing their family by having their first child in February 2021!
