I was born in Atkinson, NE.  My parents, Clayton (Butch) and Lura Goeke raised their 5 children on the family farm homesteaded by my great grandfather, August Goeke.  I am proud to be the fourth generation to call the family house home and raise my children on the farm. Together with my husband and office manager, Jon, we enjoy watching our children Ella, Andrew, and Caleb as they work at school, violin, piano, and sports.

    I started my dental career as a registered dental hygienist and practiced in several locations such as Ainsworth and Lexington, NE; the inner city of Denver, CO; and the inner city of Omaha, NE before deciding to return to college to pursue a career in dentistry.  I earned my D.D.S. degree in May of 2004 graduating with distinguished honors from the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s College of Dentistry.  I chose to return to the Sandhills where my heart has always been!

    While I have been privileged to provide dental services to several ethnic and cultural backgrounds over years of practicing in different cities, I am most proud to serve the hardworking patients of rural North Central, Nebraska. Between working at the clinic and family time, I continue to advance my knowledge with continuing education coursework every year and belonging to a Spear Study Club.  This group of general and specialty dentists challenge each other to learn and grow.  It is my firm belief that every patient deserves the best chance with their treatment right out of the “gate”.  Therefore I strongly promote and utilize the areas of dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association to save the patient money, time, and pain. 

    It is my belief everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.  Our office practices by the golden rule of do unto others as you would have done unto you.  I look forward to meeting you in person!
