Monica Obniski, DMD, MS
Dr. Monica Obniski was born and raised in Chicago, IL before moving to Wisconsin Dells, at the age of 11. As entrepreneurs, her parents set out to this tourist town where they purchased a family business. Dr. Monica learned the importance of dedication and strong work ethic from an early age, spending 15 summer seasons helping with the family business.
Education and Experience
She attended UW-Madison and then graduated magna cum laude from UW-Milwaukee with a degree in Biology and minor in Chemistry. She didn’t take a traditional path from undergrad to dental school but always knew she wanted a career that helped people. It was through shadowing local providers and volunteering that she discovered the dental field and eventually orthodontics.
Temporarily moving back to her roots in Chicago, she received her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree from Midwestern University College of Dentistry in Illinois, graduating within the top of her class and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon honorary dental society.
In 2020, she received her Master of Science Degree and Certificate in Orthodontics from the University of Iowa Orthodontic Program. During her residency, Dr. Monica conducted research evaluating phenotypic risk factors for cleft lip and palate. In addition to her research on this condition, she had the opportunity to treat patients with such craniofacial anomalies which was one of the most rewarding parts of her residency.
Becoming an Orthodontist was the best decision she has ever made, and it is truly her dream job. You’ll see the compassion she has for her patients through daily interactions while always keeping their best interest in mind. Dr. Monica’s goal is to improve function and esthetics because everyone deserves to feel comfortable and confident with their smile.
