Paola Family & Cosmetic Dentist Office Staff
Paola Dentist Office Open on Tuesday & Friday
In July 2015, Dr. Andrew expanded the family practice by adding a second location in Paola, Kansas. With more than 35 years in business, we have always prided ourselves on providing first-class dental care with exceptional professionalism since we first opened our doors in Lenexa in August 1981. At HERWIG DDS, we are a family owned practice and treat our patients as such. We are always welcoming new patients and we hope to make you a part of our dental family!
Dr. Andrew has been a member of the Herwig DDS family since before he could walk. His father, Robert V. Herwig, DDS, was the practice’s previous owner for more than 30 years. After spending many hours in the family office, Dr. Andrew knew he wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a dentist.
To achieve this goal, Dr. Andrew started his education at the University of Kansas, graduating in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Cell Biology and a Minor in Business. He then attended the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Dentistry, graduating and becoming licensed as a DDS in 2015. Dr. Andrew is continually educating himself to deliver the highest quality customer service and best possible care to his patients. He is also a member of the American Dental Association, Kansas Dental Association and Fifth District Dental Society.
Outside of the office, Dr. Andrew loves spending time with his wife, Emma, daughters, Ava, Emmie, and Kate, and dog, Miss Brooks. They love traveling, golfing, cheering on KU and being outside – whether it is going on walks, grilling in the backyard, tailgating with friends or being at the lake.
Leslie – Dental Hygienist
Leslie has been working in dentistry for 30 years. She earned her Associates degree in dental hygiene from Johnson County Community College in 1993.

Julie – Dental Assistant
Julie has worked in dentistry for more than 35 years. Julie takes great pride in making patients comfortable and happy with their dental experience.
Julie and her husband, Mark, have been married for 34 years. They have two beautiful daughters and an amazing granddaughter! Outside of work, she enjoys gardening, boating, yoga, traveling and spending time with her loved ones.
Susan – Business Manager
Susan joined the Herwig DDS team in 2012. She handles the front desk responsibilities as well as the business operations of the practice.
Susan graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering in 1979. Prior to joining Herwig DDS, she enjoyed a career with Southwestern Bell for thirteen years leaving to become a stay-at-home mom raising her two boys, Andrew and Mark.
Outside of the office, Susan enjoys spending time with her husband, Rob, family and friends; reading a good book and, whenever possible, traveling to the beach.
Blake – Office Manager
Blake is newest addition to the Herwig DDS team; She began in June 2022. Blake manages front desk responsibilities and patient relations. You will see her as you check in and out of our office!
Blake graduated from Kansas State University in 2017 with a degree in Elementary Education. With that said, while working in dentistry may be a new path, working with people and building positive relationships is familiar territory!
Outside of work, Blake and her husband Grant enjoy playing frisbee with their dog Hazel, golfing, pool time, tailgating and cheering on KSU with friends and family. They are looking forward to adding a little one to their family this January.
