Dr. Samantha J. Ruiz

Dr. Samantha Ruiz, also known as "Dr. Sam", knew she wanted to be a dentist from an early age.  She grew up in Kenosha, and after graduating high school attended Marquette University for nearly a decade.  She earned her Biological Sciences degree from Marquette in 2007, and her DDS in 2010.  Dr. Sam is a member of the American Dental Association, Wisconsin Dental Association, Waukesha County Dental Association, and is also a certified Invisalign provider.

Professionally, Dr. Sam considers patient comfort & satisfaction during dental visits her top priority.  One of her greatest enjoyments in practicing dentistry is witnessing a person's confidence blossom as they learn to show off a beautiful new smile, sometimes after years of being embarrassed about their teeth.  Dr. Sam also places great importance on keeping her dental education up to date by attending continuing education courses.

In her free time, Dr. Sam enjoys hiking, days out on the lake, traveling, and hobby photography.
