Meet Our Orthodontic Team
When you visit the office of Dr. Mark D. Paschen, you can expect a wide range of comfortable and affordable orthodontic treatments to help you achieve a gorgeous smile that will last a lifetime. No matter your age or budget, we have an option that will work for you.
We strive to provide a warm and welcoming environment for every patient. Dr. Paschen works one-on-one with each patient to discuss their treatment options and what would be best for them. We schedule as much time as needed to discuss these options, so our patients never feel rushed or pressured to accept treatment.
Dr. Mark Paschen
I attended the University of Wisconsin at Baraboo, before going on to the University of Wisconsin at Madison and the Marquette University School of Dentistry. Although my formal education is complete, I continue to regularly attend extensive continuing education courses and seminars. I attend these classes in order to stay at the leading edge of the newest advances in orthodontic techniques, and to ensure the highest quality treatment for my patients.
My practice is focused solely on Orthodontics, TMJ Treatment, and Sleep Appliance Therapy for snoring and breathing disorders, so that I can provide the most advanced patient care. I have attended countless hours of post-graduate continuing education beyond dental school each year on a regular basis over the past 30 years.
As a part of my continuing education, I am an active member of the following organizations:
- Senior Certified Orthodontic Instructor for the International Association for Orthodontics
- American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine
- Academy of Clinical Sleep Disorders Disciplines (Academic Diplomate, Faculty)
- Sauk-Juneau-Adams County Dental Society
- Wisconsin Dental Association
- American Dental Association
- American Academy of Orthodontics for the General Practitioner (President 1994 & 1995)
- American Association of Functional Orthodontics
- International Association for Orthodontics
- Pierre Fauchard Honorary Dental Society
- American Academy of Craniofacial Pain
In the Office
Caring for teeth is in my genes! My grandfather was a dentist, and he was my inspiration to go into the field of dentistry. My family has four generations of dentists, including uncles and cousins! Orthodontics is my passion as well as my profession, and I am always striving to become better at what I do. I enjoy seeing the transformation of my patients’ smiles during their treatment. When that treatment is complete, they leave smiling and full of self-confidence.
I have been practicing orthodontics since 1983, and have always held individualized treatment as my priority. I want to get to know each patient in order to cater to their specific needs and expectations. I also enjoy the personal friendships that I build with my patients and their families!
I have the pleasure of working with a phenomenal and experienced team, who I am also proud to say are my friends. We all enjoy working together, which makes for a relaxed and pleasant experience for our patients.
I was born and raised in Baraboo, and am glad to be treating the patients and families of this area and the surrounding communities. My wife, Judy, and I have lived here for over 25 years, and are proud to have raised our family here. We have three sons: Mitch, his wife Naomi, and our granddaughter Ava; Adam; and Joel. In my spare time, I love to scuba dive, attend sporting events, exercise, and travel. I have 2 dogs that I love to take for walks, and a cat who keeps my family entertained. Most of all, though, I love spending time with my wonderful family and friends!
Being an active member of our community is important to me. That is why I am a member of Temple Beth El in Madison, the Sauk County Humane Society, as well as the Baraboo and Mauston Chambers of Commerce. I was also the president of the University of Wisconsin of Baraboo/Sauk County Campus Foundation for 20 years.
As the Orthodontic Administrator and Appointment Coordinator, I have the privilege of greeting our patients as they arrive, and helping them to coordinate their appointments, and any other needs that they may have as both our patient and our guest. I also help our patients with making the most of their dental insurance as needed. My highest priority is providing an exceptional and positive experience for our patients. Outside the office, I enjoy snowmobiling, reading, walking my rescue dogs, volunteering at the Humane Society, working on various cancer fundraisers, and spending time with my husband Shawn.
I have been an Orthodontic Clinician with Dr. Paschen for over 19 years! I enjoy getting to know each and every patient. It is very rewarding to see the transformation not only in their smiles, but in their lives, just by simply going through orthodontic treatment! I like to make every appointment informative and fun, and we all enjoy getting to know our patients’ families. In my spare time, I enjoy card making, scrapbooking, and crocheting, but most of all, I enjoy spending time with my family.
Welcome! I have been an Orthodontic Clinician in our practice for over 17 years! I work with Dr. Paschen to place the braces on, and I do orthodontic adjustments. We have a lot of fun with our patients and their families, and we enjoy getting to know them. Dr. Paschen is a great man to work for because he gives each and every patient his personal attention, and is always available to answer questions from patients and parents. At home, I spend time with my husband, Dennis, and our daughters Lynsey and Emme. I enjoy camping, crafts, scrapbooking, reading, and church fundraisers.
I am your Treatment Coordinator! I have over 20 years of customer service experience and have been with Dr Paschen for 5 years. It is my privilege to introduce our practice to all new patients and their families. This includes new patient consultations, digital images, and photography. One of the best parts of my job is getting to know all our patients and watching them advance through the orthodontic experience. In my free time, nothing is better than cooking for my husband Chris, children MaryJo and Michael, and hiking with my two dogs, or singing in my church choir. I am an avid cyclist and runner also! I look forward to meeting you and your family!
Hello, I am the Sleep Coordinator as well as an Orthodontic Clinician, and have been with Paschen Orthodontics for over 5 years. I work closely with Dr. Paschen to make sure each individual smile is as perfect as the patient! I also help Dr. Paschen in fitting patients with Oral Sleep Appliances for their Sleep Apnea. I enjoy getting to know our patients, and I love what I do! In my spare time I like to watch movies, go boating, fishing, and camping. Most of all, I love spending time with my husband Kalub, and our two dogs.
Hello, I am an Appointment Coordinator as well as an Orthodontic Clinician for Dr. Paschen. I am very happy to be a part of this practice! I love working in Orthodontics and seeing what amazing results our patients can achieve through their Orthodontic treatment. Our patients are our first priority, and I admire the compassionate care Dr. Paschen gives to all of his patients and their families. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend Trent, our dog Shelby, and being outdoors.
I have been the Director of Fun here for over 10 years, and I enjoy being able to help with our patient contests and prizes, our Paschen Bucks reward program, Social Media and other activities that enhance our patient experience! In my spare time, I love to hang out with my wonderful husband, Mark, and our children: Our son Mitch and his wife Naomi, our granddaughter Ava, and our sons Adam, and Joel!
