Cathy 

Practice Manager

I am very proud to work with Dr. Silc and I am honored to work along side such committed team members.  I have been the practice manager for over 8 years. My clinical experience as a surgical assistant for 16 years with this same practice combined with my educational background prepared me to transition into my current position as the practice manager. As a surgical assistant continuing education was the most prominent part of my clinical experience. I love the changing health care field technology and the improvement of clinical products, implant systems, and all that contribute to improve patient treatment.  As the practice manager I remain a life long learner and love the opportunities to grow and contribute within this practice. With over 27 years in the dental field I truly love what I am doing. I  like the way we treat patients, like family, with care and respect.

Mary Jo  

Registered Dental Hygienist

All my life I have had a passion for helping people. I was at a time in my life I wanted a career that would provide me the ability to raise my two children.  I found dentistry, initially as an assistant, then becoming a hygienist. 

Now, more than 30 years, I have been at the same practice and I love it. My approach and passion has been to provide patients with personalized care striving to connect and understand them in a calm and caring atmosphere. I have been rewarded with maintaining long term relationships with my patients in a practice that is committed to professional and quality care. My family is very important to me.  I enjoy spending time with my husband, children and five grand children

I have worked as a surgical assistant with this practice since 1984.  The greatest pleasure for me is the priority for patient care, it is a great feeling to me to be able to connect with patients and help them have a positive cared for experience. This is a very important part of my position. I have made many friends throughout the years. I love to come to work every day. I have enjoyed the many developments in progressive treatment techniques and participating in the evolution of Dental Implants has made me a well rounded professional. I continue to participate in many continuing education opportunities. I am extremely proud to work with Dr. Silc she is an excellent surgeon and gives me an opportunity to develop superior skills as a surgical assistant.

Anita

Business Adminstrator

I have had the pleasure of being part of Dr. Silc’s team since 2007 utilizing my customer service background as a Business Administrator. I am passionate about being a patient advocate.  There is nothing like the satisfied look on a patients face when they’ve navigated the sometimes confusing world of insurance/financing and the unknown of treatment, to come out of their experience a healthier person with an even bigger better smile!  To calm fears, answer questions and make treatment possible, especially in a soothing environment is rewarding to me.  My wonderful husband Ted and I enjoy life in the Fox Valley area with our children, grandchildren and our two chihuahua’s  Molly & Gigi.

 

 

Randi

Business Administrator & Insurance Coordinator

I have worked with Dr. Silc for the past 8 years. My goal is to make your experience a positive one by gathering all initial information so your first visit runs smoothly, putting our patients at ease. The other important area that I am dedicated to is working along side patients to help navigate their insurance benefits. I enjoy working with a team that is dedicated to providing the best care possible. 

I love to travel, going to sporting events, spending time with family and friends. I am blessed to have two married children and five amazing grandchildren.

 

Natalie

Registered Dental Hygienist

I received a bachelors of science degree from Indiana University Bloomington 2006, then graduated with high honors from the dental hygiene program at Harper College. I always knew that I wanted to work in health care because I enjoy getting to know people on a personal basis, while helping them. Being in the dental field allows me to continually meet with the same patients regularly , monitor their progress and educate them on the importance of oral health.  Prior to working at Dr. Silc’ office, I had always worked in general dental practices, but I have found that working in a periodontal practice is much more interesting and rewarding!  Dental hygiene is a career where you are a life- long learner, and I do continue to learn so much everyday at work while building relationships with my patients and coworkers.  when I’m not working, I spend time with my husband, Nick, daughter, Noelle and mini dachshund Abby.  I am passionate about being fit and healthy. I love to exercise and spend time outdoors with my family and friends.  I also love to travel and try to visit a different country at least once a year to taste different cuisines and experience other cultures.  Some of my other hobbies include reading, yoga, cooking and trying new restaurants.

 

 

Kasia

Surgical Assistant

I have been part of Silc Periodontics for about a year. I have worked as an assistant in other General Dentistry offices and have loved working with a specialist like Dr. Silc.  I developed an interest in the dental field when my father lost his teeth at an early age. It encouraged me to gain more knowledge about prevention and good oral health. I love working with patients and helping them achieve ultimate dental health in every aspect. I think with a beautiful and healthy smile everything is possible. I bring a cheerful attitude to our office and I love getting to know our patients. We truly care about each other and most importantly we care for our patients like family. I speak fluent Polish and English. I enjoy spending time with my family, my husband and my adventurous 5 year old daughter, Julia. I love photography and crafts so I grab any opportunity to take fun photos.  I enjoy outside activities like biking, running or swimming.
