Our Practice Philosophy

At Green Bay Smiles, everything we do centers on meeting your individual dental needs. We will always work to educate you on the concerns we see, explain every option available for addressing these issues, and help you to make a thoroughly informed decision as to treatment planning. We will never pressure you into a service. We believe that dentistry should be pain free, regardless of the procedure, and our gentle practices ensure just that. Whether you’re a new patient or have been visiting us for years, we treat you like family, with the personalized, attentive care that we would expect for ourselves and our own families. We know that transformed smiles transform lives.

Our Team


Beau Schneiss, DMD

Dr. Beau Schneiss graduated cum laude from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay with a degree in human biology. He then attended the Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine, graduating in 2016 with his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree. Dr. Schneiss completed his General Practice Residency at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center and at the University of Oklahoma Hospital. He has practiced in the Green Bay, Wisconsin, area since 2016.

  • Dr. Schneiss is always learning! Whether through online continuing education courses, hands-on clinical courses, or journal articles and research, he constantly strives to enhance his education. Dr. Schneiss is also a member of several professional dental organizations, including:

    • American Dental Association
    • Academy of General Dentistry
    • Chicago Dental Society
    • Operation Smile

    As a dentist, his goal is to give his patients healthy, functional smiles, through ethical, precise, and predictable treatment. The field of dentistry is rapidly changing, and Dr. Schneiss has the advantage of being trained in new technologies while still appreciating the “tried and true” methods of the past. His goal is to support his patients with the best information while also respecting their individual values and preferences.

    Dr. Schneiss is one of seven children and was born and raised in West Bend, Wisconsin. He enjoys spending time with his family and friends on the weekends and taking part in various outdoor activities, including camping, hiking, and trail running. Some of his other interests include CrossFit, carpentry, and travel. When he has the time, you might find him on his quest to (attempt to) visit every National Park in the U.S.


Aaron Bushong, DDS

Dr. Aaron Bushong completed his dental education at Marquette University, where he graduated with honors and received recognition for excellence in clinical restorative dentistry. Since graduating, Dr. Bushong has remained committed to providing the highest level of care and keeping up with the latest in dental technology. As a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, he regularly attends continuing education courses focusing primarily on cosmetic dentistry, full mouth reconstruction, CAD/CAM (CEREC) technology, and implantology, as well as endodontics, oral surgery, and Invisalign®/short-term orthodontics.

  • A native of Rhinelander, Dr. Bushong has lived in the state of Wisconsin his entire life. Before attending Marquette, he went to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee on an athletic scholarship, playing on two NCAA tournament baseball teams and also pitching for the Wausau Woodchucks during their 2001 championship season. It was during that summer with the Woodchucks that Dr. Bushong met his wife, Jenell, who was born and raised in the Wausau area. He and Jenell, herself a nurse practitioner, have three young children–Breanne, Jack, and Emily–and have called Wausau home for over ten years.

    In his spare time, Dr. Bushong enjoys spending as much time as possible with his growing family, traveling, camping, golfing, being outdoors, and cheering on Wisconsin sports teams, especially the Brewers, Packers, and Badgers. He also serves as a volunteer baseball coach at Wausau East High School and with other area baseball youth camps.

    Dr. Bushong is very excited to be back in the Wausau area where he started practicing dentistry and where his home and family are. His professional focus continues to be providing the highest quality dental care possible in a warm and friendly environment.

Dental Hygienists


Nancy – Dental Hygienist & Practice Historian

Nancy is originally from Menominee, Michigan, and attended school at Ferris State University and Concordia University of Wisconsin. She enjoys building relationships with our patients, and wants them to feel comfortable and ask questions so that she can provide them with information about the relationship between their oral and overall health. Nancy has been with our team since 1994 and still looks forward to coming into the office. She doesn’t consider this a job as much as a calling. She states, “I am grateful to be allowed to practice clinically as well as being free to do consulting and speaking in her other roles as a hygienist.”

Outside of the office, Nancy enjoys reading and doing outdoor activities like walking and kayaking along the shores of the Bay, where she lives with her fiancé and their pets.
