Vicky has been in dentistry for nine years. Although she started out in retail management, having served 18 years in that field, she was recruited by a big dental organization, affording her the chance to use her skills for a more noble cause by entering the healthcare field. She loves that she not only gets to lead teams, but also gets to educate staff and patients alike. She is currently in her final year of law school and can’t wait to be officially allowed to use the law jargon she already casually slips into conversation.
Vicky has been married for 26 years and has three kids. When she’s not busy pulling pranks on the entire staff, she likes to spend time hanging with her family.
Giselle, Treatment Coordinator
Giselle has been working in the dental field as an admin team member for close to 10 years. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree from Lewis University and graduated with high honors. She was also the recipient of the Political Science Department Senior Award. She enjoys working closely with her team because she believes they stand out from other dental practices due to their willingness to go above and beyond for their patients, along with the positive energy each person brings every day.
When Giselle takes a break from keeping the office organized and in tiptop shape, she enjoys spending time with her family outdoors and traveling with her friends. Her favorite travel destinations are warm, sandy and sunny places. She also enjoys reading. Preferably at sunset on the beach.
Marissa, Financial Coordinator
Marissa has been in the dental field for over nine years. She had always had an interest in dentistry because her mother was a dental assistant for over 25 years. When she turned 15, she was able to get a work permit and was hired at a busy dental office to help file and sterilize instruments. She continued this through high school and college. Even though she took other administrative jobs later on, she went back to her first love, dentistry, and decided to get back into the field about 5 years ago.
Marissa and her boyfriend recently bought a house Willowbrook in Fall 2018 and they hope to adopt a dog in the near future (she already has the name “Potato” picked out and ready to go). She is also a licensed Cosmetologist and works part-time at a salon.
Marissa enjoys traveling, going to concerts, and reading. When she’s not tied up dealing with unruly insurance reps, she’s very into genealogy research (she’s traced her ancestors back to the 1500’s)!

She will be starting her first year of hygiene school in the summer of 2019 and is very excited to begin.
When Nada takes a break from updating the practice’s social media pages and making patients feel at home, she likes to spend time with family and friends.
