Schroeder to Begin Dental Practice in Former Wellensiek Office

Dr. Sarah Schroeder will be starting a new dental practice in Tecumseh at end of January or early February. Her office will be in the former office of Dr. Todd Wellensiek at 509 Broadway Street in Tecumseh.

“I’m excited to become a part of this community,” said Dr. Schroeder. “I’m honored to have this opportunity to open my own dental practice in Tecumseh.”

Currently, the Tecumseh Dental office is undergoing a makeover with a fresh coat of paint and the installation of new carpeting as well as the installation of a new computer system.

In addition to seeing that a person’s teeth are cared for, Dr. Schroeder enjoys creating a lifelong relationship with her patients and their families. She wants to be flexible in meeting her patients’ needs and is willing to schedule appointments that will best fit the patients’ schedule.

Davis is Officially Named to Kidney Transplant List

“Merry Christmas to me,” said Betty Davis of Tecumseh as she received official notification that her name has been added to the list for a kidney transplant through the University of Nebraska Medical Center. “It was a good Christmas present,” she added.

Currently, Davis is on the deceased organ donor’s list for receiving a kidney transplant. Davis said she was considered a candidate because she was young enough and fairly healthy. She didn’t have any hidden health issues. “They check your heart, your teeth, everything. I feel like I had a 100,000 mile check-up a couple of months ago,” said Davis.

That fall, Wellensiek began at the College of Dentistry and graduated from UNMC College of Dentistry in 1978. He said he became a pharmacist because he wanted to do something in the medical field. He switched to dentistry because he liked the hours.
