Cheryl – Office Manager
Cheryl is our Front Desk/Office Manager. She joined us in 2006 after she retired from AT&T as a Finance Manager in the Global Real Estate Division. She enjoys the daily interaction with our patients and their families. While she can’t say she enjoys dealing with the insurance companies, she has become quite adept at navigating the trials and pitfalls that come with insurance claims!
Cheryl lives in Naperville with her husband, Jesse, and enjoys reading, knitting and travel.

Nadia – Dental Assistant
Hi, I’m Nadia. I am originally from Latvia. I came to the United States in 2000 and became a US citizen in 2015. When I first came to the US I was a caregiver for elderly patients which I found to be very rewarding. I really enjoy working with people and the dental office provides the perfect opportunity for this and to learn new skills.
In my spare time I enjoy shopping and organizing!
