Doctors & Staff
Meet the experienced and friendly doctors and staff who make Lake Country Eye Care a proud provider of vision care products and services in Hartland.
Dr. Amber Dentz, O.D.
I have been practicing optometry in the lake country area since I graduated from Optometry School in 2001. I grew up in East Troy, WI and graduated Valedictorian of my class in 1992. I then attended The University of Wisconsin-Madison an received my Bachelor of Science in 1996. GO BADGERS!!! Instead of heading right to graduate school, I took a year off and moved to Portland, OR where I worked for an optometrist and explored up and down the west coast! In 1997 I started Optometry School at Indiana University-Bloomington and graduated with high honors in 2001. During school I was chosen to be an assistant instructor for a number of classes, and received awards in academics and contact lens expertise.
I am a proud member of the American Optometric Association and the Wisconsin Optometric Association. I have served on the Wisconsin Optometric Association Board of Directors since 2009, I am currently the Treasurer. In 2010 I was extremely honored to receive the WOA Young Optometrist of the Year award from my peers! I enjoy volunteer work and annually try to participate in a program that performs vision screenings at Special Olympics events, as well as donating eye exams at Walker’s Point Community Clinic in Milwaukee. I also love to volunteer when I can at my children’s school in Hartland and sponsor programs there as well.
I live in Hartland with my husband, Aaron; two children, Lauren and Brody; and two dogs. I like to spend time skiing, golfing, walking, and yoga. I enjoy traveling and have been to many exotic places such as Panama, India, Singapore, Thailand, and Europe. I especially love spending time with my wonderful family and friends!
Cindy Schroeder – Office Manager
I started in the optical industry in 1982 at DOC Optical. Just 3 years later, I moved on to open up a prototype optical shop at the Sears in Oak Brook, IL. Later I was lucky enough to work as a sales representative for Sola Optical. I met a lot of great people and learned a lot about lens designs. I have been the office manager at Dr. Seifert’s office/Lake Country Eye Care since November 2010. I love working with people to help them find just the right eyewear for their individual personality. The great thing for me is that I get to help people every day, whether it is a great new pair of eyewear or fixing a pair of glasses for someone. I love being able to help people every day. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my daughter, shooting my gun, and walking my two black labs, Duke and Echo!

I have attended 3 training seminars over the last 5 years to increase my knowledge to help people get the best pair of eyewear possible. I enjoy the optical industry because I like helping people find just the right look and helping them see better at the same time. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, I am an amateur photographer. My favorite summer activity is Stand Up Paddle boarding. It’s my little piece of heaven!
