Mallory – Office Manager
Dawn – Administrative Specialist
Teresa – Administrative Specialist
Teresa is one of our most senior staff members, having worked with us for over thirty years. As such, she deeply grasps her role as an administrative specialist. You can, then, trust her to lovingly deal with child patients and help them develop good oral care habits.
Teresa and her husband, son, and two dogs have lived in Winfield for quite a while. She often spends her off-hours riding her bike, listening to audiobooks, and cooking. That said, you’ll most likely find her doting on dogs in the local area – she absolutely loves them!
Raven – Administration Specialist
Raven loves playing a part in a child’s positive dental experience and guaranteeing that everything is warm and welcoming from start to finish. When she isn’t at the office, she likes to spend time with her son, her dog, and her lizard. She was in 4-H when she was in high school and raised/showed goats, sheep, chickens, and rabbits—she still uses those skills today to answer any animal-related questions a child might have!
Lauren joined our team in 2022, and she always looks forward to seeing children smile thanks to the effort and care of our team. She is a graduate of the College of DuPage and has experience working in a non-profit that catered to children with special needs (specifically cerebral palsy).
Music is a big passion for Lauren—she sings, plays guitar, and has even recorded professionally! You’ll often find her relaxing at home with her cat, and she also likes to get out into the world to travel, hike, and explore new places.
