Meet Dr. Robert pollan and hear how our madison dental office

began 30+ years ago and continues to grow today


Meet Chamfer

Chamfer is Dr. Pollan’s dog and was adopted from Texas in April of 2018. Since then, he has been a member of the University Square Dental team. Chamfer is our in-training therapy animal and is here to help our patients with dental anxiety. He loves meeting new people, belly rubs, and stylish new bandanas. He stays healthy by biking, hiking, and rollerblading with his family. Chamfer gets out of bed every day excited to meet new friends and make dentistry fun!

Why Chamfer?

It is a bit of an inside joke from the dental world. Chamfer is the name of a dental instrument that is used to design and prepare teeth for crowns! The rounded finish line allows for a smooth transition from natural tooth to gold or ceramic and is what helps protect our teeth from bacteria and decay. Chamfer is at the office regularly to help protect our patients from dental anxiety.

Sue - Dental Hygienist:

Sue has been part of the University Square Dental team for 25+ years. She develops strong relationships with our patients and people love coming to see her 2,3, or 4 times a year. Whether it’s a standard cleaning, or it’s, “been a couple years,” Sue has the expertise in providing our patients with the best dental care in Madison. Her experience in personalized hygiene recommendations helps patients improve smiles and overall oral health. Outside of the clinic, she enjoys spending time with family and spoiling her little dog Eddie.

Vicki - Patient Care Coordinator:

Since 1994, Vicki is the first smiling face you see when you walk through our door. She is an expert in dealing with our patients' various insurance companies, and is always your advocate while managing insurance plans. Vicki loves taking her pup Sophie, to the dog park, and hanging out with her bird, Louie. Vicki just became a grandma January of 2019, with the birth of her first grandchild!

Konnie - Dental Assistant:

Konnie, a Madison native, has been a key member of our dental team since 2008 and enjoys assisting Dr. Robert Pollan. She earns her patients trust and helps them to feel more comfortable, while understanding that not everyone’s favorite place is the dentist. Throughout her years in the dental field, Konnie has developed experience in making sure our patients feel at ease during their appointment. When not at the office, Konnie enjoys the many music festivals Madison, WI offers and spending time with friends and family.

Ashley - Marketing Director & Dental Assistant:
