Our orthodontic/medical assistant, Ivon, assists the doctors with all aspects of patient care including taking photos, X-rays, impressions, and giving patients instructions on brushing and cleaning teeth so they can have a better outcome. Ivon has worked with us for more than 10 years and recently became a registered medical assistant. She also does everything to make sure patients are comfortable and relaxed. Ivon takes pleasure in getting to know her patients, and her ability to communicate in English and Spanish ensures that all their questions are answered.
Ivon likes to spend time with her husband, children, and mother-in-law. She also enjoys swimming in her pool and going on vacation to Disney World.
Mary is our clinical and financial coordinator whose duties include checking patients in and out, making appointments and, most importantly, taking time to provide explanations and answer questions regarding billing and insurance. She has a fun, approachable, and relaxed demeanor. Our patients find it easy to spark up a conversation with her in either Spanish or English. Mary admires and respects the devotion of the doctors to their patients and says they are easy going and a great family to work for.
Outside the office, Mary likes to spend time with her family and is an avid Bears, Bulls, and Sox fan. She enjoys taking vacations with her family and friends as well as going on road trips, attending concerts and sharing family events.
Our orthodontic assistant, Maggie, is the latest addition to our Chicago team! She is bilingual, speaking both English and Spanish fluently.
Michele, our office manager, ensures that both offices run smoothly and works with staff to continually improve our offices' operations and efficiency. She also handles the financial aspects of the practice. Her favorite part of her job is interacting with our upbeat and friendly staff, and she loves seeing happy patients and parents after their treatment is completed.
In her spare time, Michele likes to exercise, bike, quilt, read, and engage in snow and water skiing. She also can speak Spanish and loves to dance.
