About

Dentist in Pulaski

Hello, I am Dr. Adam Hammerbeck and am very excited to be in Pulaski! Although I am a native of Superior, I fell in love with the greater Green Bay area while attending St. Norbert College. Upon graduating, I attended dental school at Marquette University in Milwaukee and received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree. Because I am always aspiring to be my best, I sought out further training after dental school and completed a one-year post-doctorate dental fellowship. This allowed me to gain additional experience and instruction in advanced dental techniques at the forefront of our field that I can offer to you as my patient. Since that time, I have been practicing as an associate in the greater Milwaukee area.

I truly enjoy my profession as it provides me the opportunity to help individuals and families to achieve oral health and beauty. My goal is to provide both excellent care and a great experience while at our office. I will always treat everyone as if they are family walking through our door. I realize each person is different and has their own unique story. It is extremely satisfying to show a patient that does not like going to the dentist, that a visit to our office can be comfortable and even enjoyable.

Truly caring for my patients means not only being kind and gentle but also staying current in dental education and advancements. By staying current, I can provide the most up-to-date and best care possible. I participate in many diverse continuing education courses each year. I am also a member of the Titletown Chapter of the Seattle Study Club, Academy of General Dentistry, Brown-Door-Kewaunee Dental Society, Wisconsin Dental Association, and the American Dental Association.

I am a husband to my beautiful wife Melanie (Hoffman), who is a Pulaski high school graduate. When I am not in the office, I love spending time outdoors. I enjoy many different activities including fishing, hunting, playing hockey, biking, golfing, Nordic skiing, traveling, and the Green Bay Packers.

I am very excited and grateful to be an active member in this vibrant community. I look forward to the opportunity to help you reach and maintain your oral health while learning more about you and your family.

Hi there!

My name is Dr. Shayna Zalec and I’m looking forward to meeting you! I’m a De Pere native and moved back to the area a few years ago upon graduating dental school. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse, and attended LECOM - School of Dental Medicine in Bradenton, FL with my last year in Erie, PA.

Ever since I was a child, I enjoyed going to the dentist’s office. My dentist growing up was personable, honest, intelligent, and talented. I realized that I wanted to provide the same level of compassion and care to others, which lead me to where I am today!

I thoroughly enjoy meeting new patients and building relationships with the ones I already have met. I love being able to give people confidence with their smiles and teach them along the way. I treat every patient as if they were my family or friend.

Dentistry is constantly growing and evolving. I am committed to staying up to date with continuing education courses in general dentistry, dental sleep medicine, and craniofacial pain/treatment. I am a member of the Wisconsin Dental Association, American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, American Dental Association and Brown-Door-Kewaunee Dental Society.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, staying active, watching sports and walking my dogs. I also enjoy traveling and trying new restaurants!
