Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Karen Z. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Funke Family Dentistry for over 30 years. First it was just Dr. Jim and then his daughter, Dr. Laura came aboard. She made many changes to the appearance and updated the equipment, adding essentials for the best diagnostics and the best treatment possible. I have always been very very happy. Dr. Laura has since added Dr. Martini and also increased the rest of the staff. Most recently I needed a crown and 3 fillings. My teeth were fracturing as a result of a medication I was taking. Dr. Laura did all the prep work, the fillings and I left with a temporary crown. Dr. Laura was out of town and the corona virus struck. My temporary crown cracked and broke off and the pain set in. Dr. Martini took me and put on my permanent crown. He did such a great job and is so very nice and comforting. He worked with me until everything seemed perfect. I am glad he has joined the team. The whole staff is great. Excellent.

I’ve always hated my sharp canines but was afraid of going to the dentist (as many people are). I finally decided to be brave and go and it was honestly the best decision ever because of Funke Family Dentistry’s welcoming and caring environment. Tiffany did an amazing job with cleaning! Dr. Martini made my canines look much better than before and I have noticed myself smiling more (showing my teeth) in pictures!!! Everyone at the clinic was very nice. Best experience ever and I highly recommend! Definitely 5/5 star review

They exceed all of my expectations. They make you feel so good inside. My teeth are horrible. I enjoy cracking jokes, having fun and they get me. They explain to me what is happening and throughout the entire visit. They recommend preventative measures to ensure future healthy teeth and gums. Oh my gosh do not forget your gums! Just had a cleaning by Tiffany Johnson Bangs. What a great name and even better human being. We listened to 80’s music but you can request any music you’d like. Toys and stickers for the kids (and kids at heart). Coffee bar. Soft cushy sofa and chairs. New signage out front. I feel like I’ve known them my whole life. I have btw. Things change but a reliable caring dental hygienist, and dentist, highly trained and well educated, is something you hold onto and appreciate and cherish. If you need emergancy scheduling they are flexible. They really do care about you and it shows. I live kinda far but it is worth the trip and it’s located in the shadows of Miller Park. Worth it. Go there now! Do it! It’s something that has to be done, so you may as well do it right. Make the right choice. I did. You want gas? You can have gas. Never floss? They’ll floss for you! Happy, healthy, highly recommend. Tell them I sent you. I look forward to my next visit. Who says that? Patients of Funke Family Dentistry do, that’s who.

The staff is amazing, love that is it family owned. The office itself is very welcoming, and updated. Dr. Laura Funke as well as her father are excellent doctors and make you feel comfortable. Theresa at the front desk was extremely helpful and had a wonderful personality. Would recommend this establishment to anyone. Tracy H.

Ive been going to Funke Family dentistry for over a year now and I feel right at home. Everyone is super kind and professional and prices are super affordable if you pay out of pocket. Shot out to Dr. Martini and Shae the dream team who made me feel super comfortable during my root canal and explained everything very well. I wish you all continued success!

Kara P. from Broomfield, CO (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely amazing team. They made me feel extremely comfortable as I have anxiety about any dentist. They are quick and they were able to get me in immediately when I called with pain. They are attentive and understanding. Also extremely affordable care. I will recommend them to everyone I know!

My family and I have been coming to Funke Family Detistry for over 30 years. The staff is simply amazing and always greet us with smiles. Dr. Laura has a nice calming effect when she works on you. Tiffany the hygienist is really great too. My dad was a patient to Dr. Jim Funke forever as well. I agree with other reviews that they really care (and are not trying to upcharge you with every little thing). They are probably the only dentist that we actually look forward to coming in to see.

I’ve been going here for about a year or two and it’s the best Dentist Office ever! Such nice secretary and the hygienists and dentists are so sweet and genuinely care about you! I was here for a four molar extraction to help me make room for braces and they would constantly ask if I was okay and how I was doing. They’re such great people!

Dr Laura is the best dentist we have ever had. The kids love how fast she is and as a parent I love how she doesn’t just “fill cavities” she fills when they need to be only. For kids teeth that they will lose in a year or two this saved us a lot of money. The staff is so nice and accommodating to our crazy scheduling requests. We drive 30 minutes to come here…they are worth it!

Michael L. from Milwaukee, WI (Source: Yelp)


Thank you Dr. Funke!  I recently moved to the area and I had the worst pain I have ever experienced in my tooth.  My cousin recommended Dr. Funke (she has been going to see Dr. Funke for over 20 years).  They were able to get me in the same day.  I do not handle dental offices very well…as I was very nervous and apprehensive about coming in.  The staff was wonderful and very attentive.  Dr. Laura Funke was incredible (she is a third generation of her family to work in the practice- her grandfather started office in the 1920s).  She was very professional, calming,  and had a wonderful demeanor.  I felt so much better after my visit (and I am glad I have found our new dentist for our family).

Tia H. from Milwaukee, WI (Source: Yelp)


Hands down the best dentist in the entire Milwaukee area and beyond. I have been going to Dr. Funke since I was a toddler and at 24 years old, I still actually enjoy going to the dentist! My family of six still goes here even though they live in delafield, and now my boyfriend also goes here. First of all, easy as pie location to get to and they have a perfect parking lot. BEAUTIFUL decor and touches for their clients- from a Keurig machine and bottled water, to up-to-date magazines, a fish tank, and gloriously comfortable armchairs. The receptionists are full of life and memory– you always pick up where you left off here and they are genuinely interested in hearing about your life. Dr. Funke and his daughter, Laura, are sweet and genuine doctors who try everything in their power to make you comfortable. They are caring and lovely people– the ONLY people I can say that I like to see despite the fact that they drill my teeth. Going to the dentist could be tedious, but with this establishment its more like going to a family reunion every six months. The dental hygienists are sweet and considerate, funny and in tune with your needs. Do not miss this chance to actually LIKE your dentist. Trust me.

I have been having dental work for over 25 years at Funke Family Dentistry. Dr James Funke was wonderful over the years, caring for me as if I was a family member. And now Dr Laura (James’ daughter) is greeting me with the same smile, care and competence. Dr Baker, although I was only seen once by her, is also a caring, competent member of the team. And the service starts with Joann at the front desk and is continued with all the dental hygienists. The work is always explained in advance and I am given time to have my questions answered.

Kara Polito (Source: Google)


Dr. Laura is kind, patient and very helpful to those who may be nervous. Everyone in the office helps to calm your nerves before any procedure. I have terrible TMJ and Dr. Laura helped me immediately. If you need to get in for an emergency they are there!!! They care. It’s not about money, it’s about health and doing what’s right for each individual patient. I’ve been to some “scammer” dentists. Dr. Laura, Dr. Jim and Dr. Baker do everything to maintain the integrity of your smile! I choose dentists based on people I trust. I TRUST THEM.

I have gone to Dr. Jim (now Dr. Laura) since I was 6 months old– Best Dentistry family ever! I can call and email with any concerns I have, their staff is always available over the phone, and I adore the administrative assistants and hygienists alike. I am now 27, married, and have brought in my husband to become part of the Funke crew. It’s the little things at this dentisty that make the biggest difference. They always pick up on a life story from where we left off (6 months prior). Their notecard reminders and Christmas card updates make me smile! When growing up, they would take polaroids of my twin and I every time we visited, and then gave us the album when we graduated high school! Dr. Jim and his wife have treated the Huppertz clan with dignity, love, and unfathomable respect. They even gave us a scholarship for college! I plan to go to the Funke Family Denistry for life! Thank you for taking such good care of me and my family. We love you guys.

Prior to Funke Dental I would have to be medicated to step in a dental office, now it is like walking into any store. The friendly and caring staff really make your dental experience personal and as wonderful as can be. I can not speak highly enough about the entire staff!

I am a dentist practicing in Atlanta,GA. My brother who lives in WI flies to Atlanta to get all his dental work. We were looking for a local dentist for emergency care and were to referred to Dr. Funke by a common friend. Dr. Funke is really such down to earth and compassionate dentist. An excellent communicator. She has called me several times regarding my brother’s treatment. Very thorough and meticulous as described by my brother. Super friendly and care team too. Anyone local looking for caring dentist, Funke Family Dentistry is the place to go to! Nalini Kataria DMD

I’ve worked with the whole team to come up with a financial plan that works within my budget. And keeps me on track. Thanks Funke Family for making Me feel right at Home.

I’ve been going to this dentist office for over 15 years and it always has been a great experience. Dr. Jim , Dr. Laura and Dr. Martini are exceptional and always you treat with the best of care. Tiffany is a great hygienist that always takes care of me at my 6 month checkups . As much as I never like to go to the dentist, I know I am in good hands and would highly recommend Funke Family dentistry.

Ken K. from Racine, WI (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient for over 15 years now. The support staff and dentist’s have always been attentive, responsive, comforting, and very professional. They tell you what they’re going to be doing regarding your procedure up front and continuously ask if you have any questions. The facility is very comforting, modern and uses the latest technology and practices. I’ve had many procedures performed; extractions, repairs, cleanings, crowns, root canals and have never had a bad experience with these folks. They really focus on a pain-free experience. I started out with Dr Jim and have had many good experiences. Dr Laura came on board and performed my very first root canal. She did a perfect job and I’ve always been happy with them both. The newest addition to the funky family dentistry group, Dr Martini, is fabulous! He performed two root canals in a single visit and everything went flawlessly. You immediately get a good vibe from this doctor. He’s very calm and has a relaxing demeanor, is extremely knowledgeable and he is meticulous in his dentistry craft. Dr Martini even went so far as to call and check up on me to make sure everything was still good and that I was not in any pain; not many dentists actually do this and give you this level of care these days. This level of attention is very much appreciated. He and his assistant work together perfectly and never miss a beat. This practice is like a well-oiled machine and I would highly recommend them over many other practices and other facilities I’ve been to years ago. Pricing and billing is fair and they are always willing to help if you need financing assistance; they will schedule you last minute and do everything possible to fit you in if you have an emergency. Give them a chance if you’re in need of dental services; you will not be sorry – I promise you.

After marrying my husband, I began my dental history with the Funke family.  His family had started with Dr. Walter Funke, father to Dr. Jim Funke who became our dentist as well as our sons’dentist for many years.  Dr. Jim still continues enjoying his practice, and his daughter Dr. Laura has proudly followed in her father’s footsteps.  In total it has been 51 years of returning to a place where one knows that they will receive the BEST care, concern, and compassion for the patient.  Not only have they been our dentists, but they also became our friends.  The physical surroundings are very welcoming, and the receptionists are very friendly and helpful.  I feel very proud to have the opportunity to highly recommend this dentistry practice as well as write about the beautiful people who have made this happen.

I have been going to this dentist since I was a child and have had such a wonderful experience with the staff here. They always make time to see patients if there is an emergency. They are timely, respectful and sincerely care about their patients. Dr. Laura, Dr. Jim, and Dr. Sami Martini are extremely well trained and I trust them and their staff 100% with my care and will continue to come to Funke Family Dentistry. I am pleased every time I leave and will continue to recommend them to my friends and family. Jess is a wonderful dental hygienist assistant as well as Tiffany and I love seeing them every time I come in. They ask me how I’m doing and get to know their patients. They are very professional and are more than a dentist office they are like a second family! I am so grateful for the services they provide and the relationship I have built with the staff over the years!

Once I hit adulthood and needed to find my own dentist I didn’t know where to start. My husband highly recommended Dr. Funke as he had been going to him for years. My husband hated the dentist growing up and had some terrible experiences. Once he found Dr. Funke that all changed and I couldn’t agree with him more. Everyone from the front desk staff to the hygenists to the dentists have been phenomenal over the past 7 years that I’ve been going to them. They don’t make you feel guilty if you don’t floss and they are always more than helpful no matter the circumstances. I’ve been seeing Dr. Laura Funke (Dr. James Funke’s daughter) and she’s awesome. They’ve also recently added Dr. Emily Baker who my husband has seen, and she has also been great. I think Dr. James Funke may be stepping back a bit as he gets older, but Laura and Emily after wonderful replacements and I couldn’t be more happy going to see them. Adult or child, perfect teeth or not so great, go to Dr. Funke’s office if you’re looking for a dentist in the area. You’ll be happy you did for a long time!

I can say for the first time in my life, I had FUN at the dentist’s office. Sabrina at the front desk is very knowledgeable and loves to help! Chris the hygienist and Dr. Laura are very sweet and made me feel extremely relaxed. I got a great explanation of services and had a top notch exam. Not only will I be back, but I’m recommending Funke Family Dentistry to anyone who will listen!!!

Laura Siettmann (Source: Google)


I am a very, VERY anxious patient, and every time I’ve been here, from routine cleanings to extensive procedures, the staff has been nothing but kind and helpful, The dental assistants and hygienists, and especially Dr. Laura, always greet me with a smile and are always truly dedicated to making my visit as comfortable and stress-free as possible. They never make me feel bad or embarrassed to be so nervous; in fact they go out of their way to make sure I’m feeling okay. Dr. Laura is also very meticulous and detail oriented and she takes great pride in her work. I’ve been so pleased with my results after every single visit. I will never go anywhere else, and I would recommend this practice most highly.

This is by far the best dentist office I have ever been to. The staff here treat my wife and I like family. I have been to too many Doctors and dentists who treat you like just another person in and out and this place is not one of those. They are very prompt to appointments and greet you with a smile and remember who you are and what you talked about last time you were there. My wife was terrified of dentists until she came here and now she looks forward to going and so do I!!! The entire staff gets an A+ from us!

Christine Baumgartner (Source: Google)


I have been a patient here for over 30 years. They have been wonderful to me , my husband and daughter during this time. We have needed a variety of dental work and they are always kind and aware of pain thresholds !!! I have and will continue to recommend them to my friends and family.

I absolutely love all of the Staff at Funke Family Dentist. They really care about your oral health and will assist you as much as possible to achieve a healthy mouth and beautiful smile. My family has been a patients there for 3 years and we have always had amazing results. I really love that they want to make sure you are pain free during the procedures and they are gentle. They are amazing at teaching as well. They also offer great dental plans that are affordable. I want to personally thank Dr. Funke, Dr Laura, and Tiff for helping me to save my teeth.

I am the biggest dental chicken, coming here and working with Dr. Laura was so amazing. She is kind, caring, gentle, and very patient. Also I really appreciated there was no judgment or pressure here,they just want to work with you,the best way they can to take great care of your dental health.

You cannot ask for a better dental experience. From the moment you walk in the door until the time you leave every staff member is friendly, courteous, professional and just all-around amazing. Dr. Baker and Dr. Laura do a wonderful job and I would recommend them both to anybody. Make an appointment with them and you will not regret it.

I had a very professional and pleasant experience at Funke Family Dentistry yesterday. As an older patient, I went in with two cracked teeth. X-rays were taken, and I was examined. Dr. Baker and her assistant, Becky, were CALMING, informative, and explained procedures/options well. A tooth was surgically extracted and two stitches put in. Their surgical skills were commendable and painless. Following doctor’s orders, I have had NO discomfort or pain. While I was numbing, Theresa came in regarding insurance coverage with costs of detailed treatment plans of where we go from here. She explained them well. All staff were welcoming and friendly. If you are looking for a family dentist, I highly recommend Funke Family Dentistry. I am confident you will have found a dentist practice for all ages of life.
