Our Team

Onalaska smiles dental

Dr. Dana Baldwin, DMD

Dr. Dana Baldwin grew up in Sun Prairie, WI, where she graduated from Sun Prairie High School in 2012. She was drawn to the field of dentistry at a young age. Being born missing two of her permanent teeth caused her to be very self-conscious about her appearance. She went on to receive a beautiful smile during her experience working with a general dentist and oral surgeon. That journey allowed her to be empathetic to patients experiencing dental pain or lacking confidence due to the appearance of their teeth. She was motivated to become a dentist so that she could provide the same type of confidence to her patients. Dr. Baldwin went on to attend and graduate with a degree in biology from the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse in 2016, having appeared on the Dean’s List every semester. For her graduate studies, she attended Roseman University’s College of Dental Medicine outside Salt Lake City, UT. In dental school, she was appointed by faculty into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society, and she was awarded a scholarship for Distinguished Professionalism and Ethics in 2020.

She enjoys meeting new people and making connections when they come into the office. Jolene likes to have everyone feel welcome when they come into the office, whether it be their first visit or they’ve been a patient of Dr. Baldwin for years. She enjoys seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they appreciate their visit with Dr. Baldwin and her assistants or a visit with their favorite hygienist. She always tries to make sure patients have all their questions answered before they leave the office. Jolene has recently taken up bicycling.

Dental Hygiene

Kaitlyn Komay - Onalaska Hygienist

Kaitlyn Komay – Dental Hygienist

Kaitlyn is one of the newer members of our Onalaska Smiles team, but she has immediately had a very positive influence on her patients and her teammates. Originally from Onalaska, she graduated from Aquinas High School and went on to attend Western Technical College for Paramedic studies and later graduated from Northcentral Technical College in Dental Hygiene. She wanted to enter the dental field because of her desire to help people. She enjoys the satisfaction that comes from helping patients through a cleaning. Kaitlyn always has a nonjudgmental approach — she always meets patients where they are to help them to a healthy goal. Her friendliness, knowledge, and experience are all great assets to our team. One of her favorite things about working at Onalaska Smiles is that we have a small, close team that works well together in delivering the best care possible. Outside of work, Kaitlyn loves spending time with her husband, Micah, and their Goldendoodle named Beans. Some of her other interests include real estate investments and going to their family cabin in Rome, WI. One interesting fact about Kaitlyn: her great-grandmother survived the Titanic as a child.
