Get to know our team! We pride ourselves in our warm reception and individual attention.


Trisha Mills

Trisha has worked in the dental field since high school, and has worked with Dr. Krauspe for nearly 20 years. Beginning as a dental assistant, she has graduated to the front desk over the years. When Dr. Krauspe opened his practice in the current office, Trisha was his sole employee and she has loved being a part of this wonderful small town practice for so long. A favorite aspect of managing the office has been the relationships she has developed with the patients over the years, often watching young patients grow up, marry and begin bringing their children to the office as new patients. Trisha, a long time Kaneland resident, resides in Elburn with her husband, Steve, and their three daughters.


Laurel Beatty

Influenced by her previous experience in the periodontal field as well as her educational background, Laurel has worked as a dental hygienist with Dr. Krauspe for over eight years. After earning her Bachelor of Science Degree in 1993 from the University of Iowa, Laurel married her husband, Brian. They reside in the Elburn community with their two terrific kids, and enjoy being close to many friends and family in the area.


Barb Smith

Barb graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from Northern Illinois University. She and her husband, Dave, have resided in Elburn for over 20 years. She has three awesome children, all in college after graduating from Kaneland High School. When Barb is not assisting Dr. Krauspe or taking care of her family, she finds great pleasure sewing for family and friends in the community. Her personal motto: "Be positive and smile!"



You will see Dr. Krauspe and members of his staff participating in many community activities. They belong to Churches, Scouting groups, Athletic and Music Booster clubs, American Legion and Lions, and the Elburn Chamber of Commerce. They support many community-wide efforts, such as the Kaneland Food Pantry, the Kaneland Foundation, Lymphoma and Breast Cancer Research, and the Fine Arts. They are committed to making this area the best place to live and work!
