Christopher J. Mantel, DDS

From an early age, it was quite clear that dentistry would be the perfect profession for Dr. Mantel. As a youth, he discovered a love of creating things by hand—whether making sculptures, repairing broken toys, or even assembling Legos. Applying craftsmanship and feeling satisfaction from a job well done were constant joys and a passion that led Dr. Mantel to a career in dentistry. The inspiring example of his orthodontist was huge influence as well.

As a senior in high school, Dr. Mantel was accepted into Marquette University’s Pre-Dental Scholars Program. Pursuing this accelerated and demanding curriculum, Dr. Mantel graduated as a dentist in 2008. He started his career on the south side of Milwaukee, practiced in Grafton, and now has made Inspired Dental in Mequon his home. He loves working one-on-one with patients to achieve their oral health goals. Clear and honest communication is one of the most important tools in Dr. Mantel’s practice as he strives to make every dental experience a positive one. Dr. Mantel finds it rewarding to relieve dental pain and repair and restore teeth, always with the goal of making smiles brighter.
Outside of the office, Dr. Mantel and his wife Alison are head cheerleaders for their three children, supporting them in their academics, sports and recreation activities. When he gets a minute to himself, Dr. Mantel likes to mountain bike and do woodworking projects.

After a well-regarded dental practice of 43 years, Dr. Johannes has earned his transition into retirement. He was the second owner of the practice and wants the transfer of patient care to be as seamless as it was from the practice’s founder, Dr. Paul Oberbreckling, to him. Over the years, patients have appreciated Dr. Johannes’ care that was both professional and personal. He remains working several days a week as providing great dental care gives him immense satisfaction.

Dentistry runs in Dr. Johannes’ family. A brother and an uncle were local dentists, and his sister and daughter are hygienists. Dr. Johannes graduated from Marquette University School of Dentistry in 1979, and served in the Army, where he met Bill Murray on the set of “Stripes.” Dr. Johannes joined with Dr. Oberbreckling in 1981, and has been here ever since.
Dr. Johannes has been married to his lovely bride Susie since 1975. They have three grown children and six grandchildren. Dr. Johannes loves the thrill of speed, owns a Corvette and has annual tickets to the Indianapolis 500. The hobby he’s most known for, however, is producing maple syrup at his cottage up north.
