Together we have created a culture of innovation and enthusiasm for tackling more serious dental problems in a way few other practices can.

When you visit Bay Lakes Center for Complex Dentistry, SC, you can expect a warm Midwestern welcome from our staff. We won't keep you waiting.

You'll be introduced to Dr. Lasnoski or Dr. Hallas in a relaxing consultation room where you'll have as much time as you need to discuss your concerns and goals, get to know the dentist and learn how our practice works.

Because our focus is on your long-term dental health, we will give you a thorough dental examination to detect any underlying issues that could affect the outcome of your treatment plan.

Within a week, after we have carefully reviewed your case, we will meet with you again to explain our diagnosis and present you with the most appropriate treatment options, using computer-altered digital photos of your mouth to help you visualize the final results.

We'll go over the benefits of each approach, costs and financing options so you have all the information you need to make the decision that is right for you.



Meet Dr. Lasnoski


Joseph Lasnoski, DDS, Escanaba ProsthodontistJoseph Lasnoski, DDS, MS, is a highly experienced prosthodontist and the director of Bay Lakes Center for Complex Dentistry. He serves as the architect for all restorative work, detecting any dental problems you may have before designing a comprehensive and effective treatment plan that utilizes the latest in cosmetic, prosthetic and implant dentistry.

"My passion is working with people, and I thrive on seeing the transformation that happens when my patients smile to show off their newly restored teeth. I like the detective work involved in determining the cause of specific dental problems. And I especially like the challenge of designing a treatment plan that ensures I see every patient smile.

I was the son of a first generation American who left school after the 8th grade. He worked long hours so I could go to college, and I made sure I didn't let him down. After two years of college, I was accepted into dental school where I found I had a real knack for clinical and prosthetic dentistry. After graduation, I became the only student to be accepted that year for Marquette University's 3-year graduate program in prosthodontics, which combined classwork, clinical training and teaching. To help support myself, I also worked two nights a week and Saturdays as a general dentist in an inner-city clinic.

When I finished my training, I opened my practice in Green Bay in 1978 with the help of my wife Robin, a dental hygienist and mother of our two wonderful sons. Together we developed a team of dedicated professionals, who share our philosophy that the patient's comfort always comes first. I am proud of the fact that 90% of our staff has been with us for over 15 years. In what is one of the most challenging and precise dental specialties, having like-minded associates who understand and support each other is critical to the success of our dental treatments.

Prosthodontics gives me the opportunity to combine science, medicine and artistry to make a meaningful difference in other people's lives. While I treat all restorative issues, I specialize in treating the more complex cases that put my extensive training, continuing education and 30 years of experience to the test."

Meet Dr. Hallas


Matthew Hallas, DMD, joined Bay Lakes Center for Complex Dentistry after several years working with University Associates in Dentistry in Chicago, Illinois. His extensive training in the specialty of prosthodontics gives him advanced skills and knowledge of the latest technologies and utilization of dental materials including all ceramic restorations, CAD-CAM restorations, and computer guided implant surgery. Additionally, Dr. Hallas is an active lecturer for dental study groups and continuing education programs, which keeps him on the leading edge of new developments in the field of prosthodontics.

"With a father who was a medical school professor, I knew from a young age I wanted to work in the medical field. By high school, I considered orthopedic surgery, but by the time I started college, I had decided on dentistry.

What I love about dentistry in general and prosthodontics in particular is that there is no case I can’t restore. My education and training have given me the expertise and tools I need to create real solutions. So when a patient comes to me with a challenging dental problem, I have the pleasure of telling him or her I can help. I can see the case through from start to finish. And there is nothing better than seeing patients who have never been comfortable showing their teeth before start smiling when our work is complete!

I realize that dental work is something most people don't enjoy, so I try hard to help my patients relax. I purposely don’t schedule appointments close together so I can spend as much time with my patients as they need, talking about their concerns and making them comfortable. If given the opening, I’ll talk about my love of fly fishing, a passion I share with Dr. Lasnoski. When I’m not in the office or lecturing, it’s a good bet you might find me on the fishing stream."
