Wisdom Team

Jolene our lab technician now. She has been working diligently and beyond efficiently in the dental field for over 10 years. Besides her two loves aka children, Jolene's passion outside of work is the great outdoor adventures and gardening.

Jessica is our office's orthodontic assistant. Jessica has a strong passion to see all the transformations amongst our patients through her work! She studied her clinical hours here in our office. Jessica's enthusiasm to help others in dentistry is nothing short of extraordinary. Outside of the office she lives the farm life and all our outdoors has to offer alongside her family alongside chasing her toddler, Rylee Renea around; which is a full-time job that in itself! Shew!




Shannon is our only part-time hygienist working Tuesday, Thursday evenings plus one Saturday per month who has been practicing the longest. Since graduating from Hastings Central Community College in Nebraska, she has over 25 years of caring for beautiful smiles under her belt. Two extra special smiles she takes extreme pride in are her children.

Elaine is our office manager and Dr. Wisdom's wife. She is a very busy lady with running the office, her home and managing rental properties. Elaine's continuous want in helping those in need goes far beyond our offices. Her love with mission trips far and wide is like no other and immensely just amazing!



Cindy is considered the chameleon of our office team. Heading over 3 decades of dentistry to her experience helps her run our Satellite office in Clay Center two days a week; while the other days of the week, she works at our Manhattan office as you check-out. Her infectious laughter is carried through her comedic family.

Teddie is our Dental Insurance/Financial Go-To Guru! Her knowledge of dentistry is extended over the past 3 decades with her career starting out as a Dental Assistant in the USAF.  Her caring and compassionate demeanor for our patients has come as an extension from her loving family. Busy teenagers keep her extra time not her own but she wouldn't have it any other way!



Dr. Mark Vail, D.D.S. is one of two part-time dentists as our heavily sought after Prosthedontist who normally works Saturdays only. Dr. Vail did his undergraduate studies at the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, Minnesota and then further went on to the University of Minnesota School Of Dentistry. He is a retired office from the US Army after serving 23 years but still practices on Ft. Riley as a civilian dentist. Outside of dentistry, he is the proud father of our very own Miss Kansas 2013 Theresa Vail and a loving family man of a beautiful wife along with 8 other children.

Dr. Alan Rubach, D.D.S.

Dr. Alan Rubach, D.D.S. is another part-time dentist who works Tuesday and Thursday evenings plus one Saturday per month.  He is a full-time US Army active duty dentist on Ft. Riley for a year.  Dr. Alan, as we call him to seperate him from the other Dr. Rubach, his wife, Dr. Erin, did his undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin LaCrosse and completed his dental school studies at the University of Iowa.  Aside from working both on and off Post, Dr. Alan enjoys spending time with his wife, Erin, and any time he can get outdoors.

Madison, but known to all as Maddy, is Dr. Wisdom's top assistant.  Sometimes you might see her being his other orthodontic assistant,  and you may even see her in the front office while checking out from time to time.  She loves all things involving dentistry, which is why she is pursuing a career in dental hygiene.  When she is not in the office, Maddy enjoys trips to Kansas City to cheer on her favorite team, the Kanas City Royals.


Dr. Erin E. Rubach, D.D.S.

Dr. Erin, as we like to call her since her husband also works here, Dr. Alan Rubach, is full of energy and extremely eager to brighten smiles all around.  She joins us Full-Time working all day Mondays, Tuesday, Thursdays, & Fridays plus Wednesday morning for our more lengthy/difficult cases.  Dr. Erin completed her undergraduate studies at Luther College in Decorah, IA and completed her dental studies at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry.  In addition to dentistry, she enjoys baking, reading, being outdoors and spending time with her husband.
