Katie Herman, Doctor Recruitment manager

“My focus is to find people who will make a difference at Dental Associates. I search for the right personality for the job and for Dental Associates." 

I grew up in Suamico, Wisconsin. (just 15 minutes out of Green Bay) I have my Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice from UWM where I also received my Masters of Science in Educational Psychology. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor for the state of Wisconsin and take pride in my ability to connect with others. As a recruiter, my focus is to find people who will make a difference at Dental Associates. I search for the right personality for the job and for Dental Associates.

I have 12 years of experience within the dental clinic setting, both administrative and clinical supervision, which offers a better understanding of the team members we are recruiting for as well as the ability to relate to what occurs at the clinic level and on the clinical floor. I understand what goes into helping to staff the best people in each position we’re looking to fill.

I like to tell candidates Wisconsin has a lot to offer! There is something for everyone throughout the four seasons; from Bradford Beach in Milwaukee to Nashota Beach in Two Rivers, hiking at the Whitefish Dunes State Park, snowmobiling in Crivitz, skiing at Granite Peak in Wausau, Summerfest in Milwaukee, fall colors in Door County to Packer Games in Green Bay... there is something for everyone!

“I enjoy speaking with people about their career goals and finding the right path for them at Dental Associates.”

I grew up in South Florida and moved to the Midwest right after college – it’s beautiful here!  My husband and I are into biking and take regular trips to the trails of the Northwoods and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

My professional background is in project coordination and supporting cross-functional teams in the secondary market of the mortgage lending industry.  After making a career shift during the pandemic, Talent Acquisition became a passion of mine.  I made continuing my education in Human Resources a top priority to have a well-rounded understanding of best practices and emerging industry trends.  I am now a certified Professional in Human Resources (PHR®️).

I joined Dental Associates in 2022.  Dental Associates has a comprehensive training program for clinic staff, supportive leadership, and tuition reimbursement for those who want to pursue a career in Dental Hygiene.  I enjoy speaking with people about their career goals and finding the right path for them at Dental Associates.

Please feel free to browse our current opportunities and reach out to me with any questions.  I am looking forward to speaking with you!

kate-kaputaKate Caputa , Recruitment Specialist

I love helping people find their dream jobs while bringing the best and the brightest talent to Dental Associates.”

I grew up outside of Milwaukee in Mequon, WI where I enjoyed spending time with family and friends, and playing and coaching volleyball. I attended college at UW-La Crosse and graduated with a major in Communications and participated in many other extracurricular activities.

I found my passion in recruiting upon graduating in 2017 and have been recruiting ever since. During my time in recruitment, I have developed a track record of empathizing with candidates, understanding the needs of hiring teams, and meeting business objectives while attracting the best talent on the market. 

I am always eager to meet new people and connect them with opportunities that are right for them. When I am not recruiting, you can find me playing volleyball, running, cheering for the bucks, and spending time with family and friends.  

Please feel free to reach out with any questions about our current job openings and I’d be happy to help!
