Dr. Kyle Blau, DDS

Dentist

  I am a life-long resident of Michigan, a Yooper more importantly, and I grew up just down the road in Rapid River.  My family and I are excited to be living in Marquette, after living “below the bridge” for the last nine years. My wife and I married in 2009.  That year we also moved to the metro-Detroit area, where I attended the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry.  Following dental school in 2013, my wife and I moved to Greenville, MI (outside Grand Rapids, MI) where I practiced dentistry for five years.  I continued honing my clinical skills and pursuing many additional continuing education credits. I strive to provide excellent dental care for all of my patients.  I find all aspects of general dentistry exciting, and maintain active memberships in the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association, and Superior District Dental Society.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my wife, Crystal and our two young children, Alan and Hailey.  I also enjoy exercising, basketball, hiking, hunting, wake boarding, and cheering for the Packers of course.  I cannot wait to get to know each of you better and for you to get to know me more too!  Our hearts have always been in the U.P., and we have been blessed with this opportunity to be back in "God's Country".


Warm Regards,

                                            Dr. Kyle Blau, DDS

Gretchen

Registered Dental Hygienist

After graduating from Grand Rapids Community College with my degree in Dental Hygiene in 1993, I joined this office and have spent the last 25 years providing the highest quality care to all of our patients.  I enjoy every day with my great co-works and awesome patients, who always have something interesting to share. I am married with 2 teenagers and a feisty dog named Chili.  When I'm not working at Marquette Family Dental, I am hauling my kids to their activities, selling real estate or hanging out with my huge family.

Registered Dental Hygienist

I received my certificate in Dental Assisting from Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton in 2005, then went on to complete my Associates in Applied Science Dental Hygiene degree at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College in 2010.  I have been in this office since 2010 and look forward to seeing my patients every day, especially the ones who bring chocolate.   I love living in the UP with my husband and two children. When I am not working I spend my time playing outdoors, running, biking and traveling.

Amanda

Registered Dental Hygienist

I was born and raised here in Marquette and attended dental hygiene school in the Chicago area. After spending time in the big city, I realized just how much my heart yearned to be back in the UP and moved back as soon as I had the chance! My biggest passion is putting a smile on others faces, and helping maintain those smiles as a part of my career. To complement this career, I am pursuing a degree in Community Health Education and will graduate December 2018. My favorite activities include spending time with my adorable nephew, hiking with my puppy Harley and “fur-niece” Harper, practicing yoga, lounging at the beach during the summer, snowshoeing during the winter, and traveling to new and exciting places whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Vicki

Dental Assistant

I have been a Dental Assistant for 35 years, since graduating from the USAF Dental Program in Gwinn. The past 22 of those years have been in this office, where I have enjoyed meeting new people from all walks of life and making patients feel at ease.  Our patients are not just patients they are part of our family, it is fun to watch them grow from small children into young adults with their own families. I have been married for 7 years and am blessed with a blended family of 5 children and 5 grandchildren.  When not in the office I like to spend my time camping, gardening, hiking, biking, four wheeling, spending time with friends and family and out at camp.  I am very privileged to work with a great team of workers.  We are a small family here and care about each other greatly.

Office Manager 

I moved from Eagle to Palmer, in August of 2018 and was thrilled to join the staff at Marquette Family Dental continuing my 9 years in dental office administration.  My husband loves being back home in the UP and raising our 3 boys where he grew up.  When not working I spend my free time camping and hiking with my family or checking out the local shopping.
