“I am blessed daily with a profession I love and am even more fortunate to be able to serve my patients with some of the most dedicated people I know – my staff.”
Diane has been Nebraska Dental Center’s receptionist since 1986 and worked for 7 years as a dental assistant prior to that. She enjoys working with people and getting to know them. “Many of our patients are like friends because I’ve been able to get to know them so well over the years,” she says. She likes helping them feel more comfortable in the dental office. Diane is also very familiar with dental insurance plans and happy to answer questions about them. She likes being able to help people receive the best benefits they can for the treatment needed.
Renee has been a dental assistant for Nebraska Dental Center since 1987, and has been a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) for most of that time. With the variety of people and procedures provided, she says her job is “never boring.” She especially likes helping those with dental anxiety receive the needed treatment comfortably with as little stress as possible. Hearing them say “that wasn’t so bad” brings her joy. What she likes most though is seeing them smile when they look at themselves for the first time after treatment is completed. Renee says, “It’s amazing what confidence they show when they see how good they look.” She is glad she can help bring that feeling to them.
Deb received her AS in Dental Hygiene from Colorado Northwestern Community College and her BS in Dental Hygiene from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. She has worked at Nebraska Dental Center since 1998. Deb especially enjoys working with people on a one-to-one basis and helping them maintain health. She has a background working in periodontal offices and as a clinical instructor at the UNMC College of Dental Hygiene. “I enjoy continuing to learn about advances in care and developing my skills,” Deb explains. “I like that I can help people through something that generally isn’t enjoyable. I can make the experience as pleasant as possible.”

Had a very great experience. They took the time to explain what they will be doing and they put you at ease. The staff is very friendly. The place is very clean and modern. I was well treated by everyone. I would recommend them highly.

I had two fillings and a crown done. The entire staff is the most friendly people you will meet. Dr. Fischman was very skilled, especially with the shots! They didn't hurt because he took his time. Highly recommend NE Dental!
- Debra J.
Wow! Very impressed! I haven't been to the dentist in a few years and was not talked down to or made to feel a certain kind of way. Everything was explained to me in a way I could understand, the staff and dentist were extremely professional and friendly. They worked my upcoming appointments in a way to get the most out of my insurance benefits and times that work with my work schedule. I can't wait to work further with them to improve my mouth. Would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a dentist.
- Mike H.
All the staff are knowledgeable and also friendly, gentle, and caring. Going to the dentist can cause some anxiety but the overall caring nature of the staff helped to relieve my anxiousness.
- Pamela P.
First-time visit since we recently moved and needed to find a new dentist, and the experience was awesome! They have the latest up-to-date equipment and the staff, including the dentist, Dr. Fischman, were very welcoming and made me feel right at home. My dental hygienist Merry was wonderful and did a terrific job cleaning my teeth. They did 360-view stand-up x-rays and digital in-chair x-rays and all were done in less than 15 minutes. Very efficient!! I would highly recommend going to this dentist!
- Richard E.
I have gone here for 25 years. my children have gone here since they were 3. Love them.
I needed emergency dental work done. They got me right in, took care of it, and was treated very professional yet kind. I highly recommend them!
Been going here for 30 years. Won't go anywhere else unless I have to for all of my dental work. The Dr. is awesome and an expert you can trust. I have had cleanings, cavities filled, and a crown. Highly recommend for people with teeth sensitivity issues and dental anxiety in general.
NDC is AMAZING! Dr. Fischman is so friendly and knowledgeable, the whole staff quickly made me feel comfortable!
Dr. Fischman is the best!!! He's very gentle and explains everything in such detail! I have a fear of the dentist and he was very patient with me. I cannot recommend NDC enough!
Nebraska Dental Center is great! The staff is friendly, gentle, and knowledgeable. The dentist explains everything in a way that is easy to understand and is comforting. Would recommend it to anyone.
After having a less than pleasant experience at another dental office, I decided to seek a second opinion from Nebraska Dental. The minute I walked in I felt so welcomed by the front desk and the whole dental team! They answered any questions/concerns I had and took the time to discuss the plan for my teeth with me with care and compassion. This team is outstanding, I would recommend them to anyone!
