Dr. Daniel Raether

Some may presume Dr. Dan’s fascination with bees must be about the honey. But they, of course, would be wrong.

“Bees are just cool!” Dr. Dan excitedly says. “They’re a bug, but they’ve got everything figured out, with a hierarchy and organization to work together for an awesome cause.”

A man of many talents and passions, Dr. Dan says the apiary in his backyard is one of his newer “things.” He participates through a formal bee program at the University of Minnesota, and he estimates there are tens of thousands of bees in two hives in his backyard.

“But it takes very, very little time,” Dr. Dan says. “For the most part, bees are self- sufficient. Depending on the season, you don’t want to bother them.”

At work, Dr. Dan works to empower young patients to develop healthy, long-term dental habits. But he revels in identifying and solving problems.

“I love the challenge that a difficult child or family brings,” he says.

Dr. Bobbi Augustyn

Dr. Bobbi likes to keep life simple. She cares for her family, which includes three children, works at Camp Smile, and water skis on Lake Minnetonka.

“I’ve been slaloming since I was 5 years old and it’s one of my favorite things to do,” Dr. Bobbi says. “You have to keep yourself in good shape, and I want to do it forever.”

Dr. Bobbi isn’t kidding.

“I want to be able to water ski when I’m an old grandma!” she says. “Wouldn’t that be cool?”

Dr. Bobbi enjoys the physical challenge of the sport, which requires full body strength and plenty of balance. But she also appreciates the beauty of the sport, especially at dusk.

“The water looks like glass,” she says, “and it feels like you’re just walking on water. It’s pretty awesome.”

Dr. Colin Maguire

Dr. Colin has learned so much from golf, a sport he’s played since he was four years old. He enjoys being outside, the uniqueness of each course and the different challenges and opportunities each hole presents.

“I love that you have to read a hole and pick an appropriate play,” Dr. Colin says. “That plays into my job: Reading the situation and being able to adapt based on a patient’s needs and concerns.”

As a dentist, Dr. Colin meets lots of new, young patients who are nervous.

“It’s great to provide an experience that is hopefully positive and life-changing to a patient population that you can really impact,” Dr. Colin says. “I want to help each kid through whatever they need and have them high five me at the end so they don’t have to be scared to go to the dentist.”

Dr. Amelia Leuer

Dr. Amelia comes from a farming family, and horses were a fixture throughout her childhood. She first appeared in a horse show when she was three years old and started riding Patrick, her own shetland pony, when she was seven.

“We always had ponies around,” Dr. Amelia says. “My first memory of having any responsibility was cleaning his stall and feeding him.”

After school, she cleaned and groomed horses prior to spending at least forty-five minutes riding. On weekends, she participates in equestrian and horse showings, winning her share of local and regional titles.

“It takes a lot of compassion and empathy to care for a horse,” Dr. Amelia says. “Your horse cannot verbalize experiences of discomfort or distress to you. You have to really be in tune to that.”

Dr. Amelia says those characteristics serve her well as a pediatric dentist.

“When kids are really young,” she says, “they don’t possess the communication skills adults do.”

Dr. Amelia is grateful for the special relationships she developed with her horses, including Snooky 1 and Snooky 2. These horses appeared similar; however, they were different in many ways.

“Most people couldn’t tell them apart,” Dr. Amelia says. “I could. They are both so sweet and loving.”

Although she won most of her awards with Snooky 2, Dr. Amelia still learned a lot riding Snooky 1 on trail rides at Cross Hassan Park Reserve. Snooky 2 enjoyed being pampered, preferred being inside, and did not like to get dirty.

“[Snooky 2]’s kind of a diva!” Dr. Amelia says.

If you had a free day to do anything, how would you spend it? I love spending time with my family. I would probably want to spend the day with them and take our motor home camping where we could hike, bike, grill, play games, boat on a lake, and sit around a bonfire.

What superpower do you wish you had? I always thought it would be so fun to talk to animals!

What is one of your actual superpowers? I love to sing, and I know the words to many of the Disney princess songs.

What is your favorite snack? Oreo cookies

Why do you love your job? Being a pediatric dentist is the best job in the world! It is a remarkable privilege to care for the dental health of children and patients with special health care needs. Every day incorporates fun, challenge, and a unique set of skills to guide children through the dental experience. I feel so blessed to be entrusted with this role and form relationships with children and their families to help promote healthy smiles that will last a lifetime.

Dr. Kiley Dohm

Dr. Kiley appreciated growing up in North Dakota, but her family enjoyed winter with regular trips to Montana.

“It became a family affair,” says Dr. Kiley, who is from Bismarck. “We had relatives there, and we would make the trip multiple times each winter.”

She started on skis then transitioned to a snowboard, taking lessons with her father and brothers.

“I just like the physical activity and now, no run is ever the same. There are lots of variables, and they can be challenging.”

She feels the same way about wakeboarding, an activity she enjoys during the summertime.

The truth is though, Dr. Kiley was always active and outside. In fact, her family made a lot of spring and summer trips to the Twin Cities for Twins games, and soccer tournaments. She even attended the USA Cup at the National Sports Center in Blaine.

“When I decided to pursue dentistry, I knew the University of Minnesota would be a great option, it was well-respected, close to home, and I loved Minneapolis!”

Dr. Kiley recently moved to the Twin Cities, and she is thankful that she can enjoy the local lakes and golf courses. Most of all, she is thrilled about joining the Camp Smile team and working with kids and their families.

“One of my favorite things is when a child comes in, and they’re super apprehensive. I meet that child for where they are at and take baby steps to build their trust. When I establish a relationship, I am able to gradually coach them to overcome their fear.”
