Our team at White Oak Family Dentistry is full of dedicated, loyal, and compassionate professionals! Patients have come to see this same team for many years. Our team is a large part of our office and the White Oak Family Dentistry difference.

Lori Luszczak – Office Manager
Lori has been with our team since day one! Over the years, she has enjoyed getting to know our patients. Many patients who started with Dr. Nimelstein (original practice owner) back in the late 50’s and 60’s, as well as some of our current patients, came to our practice as a referral of their friends, family, and neighbors. To Lori, the best part about being a part of our family practice is seeing how our patients grow and change in their lives over the years, as well as seeing them out in the community. Lori is Dr. Bob’s wife of 25 years, and they have 2 children, who are now in college. She and Dr. Bob have lived in the neighborhood for over 21 years.
