Three Generations of the Kuffel Name —
The legacy continues
Kuffel Dental is a third generation general dental practice based on sincere doctor-patient relationships. The goal for all these years has been to help patients understand their dental needs and treatment options in a professional, personal and friendly process. Your needs and wants are our primary concern and will be addressed starting at your first visit. While dental materials and techniques have changed, our commitment to excellence has not.
We appreciate the legacy of Dr. Raymond Kuffel, who started the practice in the 1950’s and worked until his untimely death at the age of 53. Following in his father’s footsteps, Dr. Kevin Kuffel continued the legacy of Kuffel Dental. He and his wife, Kathy raised five children in Brookfield, the second oldest being Dr. Joseph Kuffel.
Dr. Joseph Kuffel
Dr. Joseph Kuffel was born and raised in Brookfield, Wisconsin. He attended St. Luke’s grade school, Brookfield Central high school and graduated from Marquette University with a degree in Biomedical Engineering. He continued on at Marquette University Dental School and graduated in 2008, where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree. He also participated in the Advanced Education of Dentistry (AEGD) Program.
His passion is playing golf and he hit a hole-in-one at Washington County Golf course. He also enjoys Marquette Basketball, the Green Bay Packers, and the Milwaukee Brewers. He enjoys spending his Wednesday mornings at the zoo with his nephews riding the train or sky glider and going to all their secret spots. The Kuffel family hopes their legacy will continue with one of them.
