Olga

Dental Hygienist

Originally from Russia, I moved to the US in 2010. Starting fresh, I decided to try myself in the dental field. In August 2010 I enrolled in the Dental Assisting Program at Elgin Community College and later graduated from it with honors. For the next several years I continued working as a dental assistant in both general and specialty practices. Inspired by my team members to make a difference in people’s oral health, I decided to pursue a dental hygiene career. In May 2019 I graduated from William Rainey Harper College, but my education does not stop there. I strive to further my knowledge of dentistry through continuing education classes in order to provide the best care possible to my patients.

Why did you choose dentistry?
I have always been fascinated by dentistry, but what solidified my decision to pursue it as my career was the fact that I myself had to receive extensive treatment over the years. Finally, I was determined to find out the source of my problems and what lies beyond simple brushing and flossing.

What is the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is knowing that I was able to help somebody make a step towards healthier and happier self.

What aspect of your personality adds the most value to the office?
Being grateful and appreciative to my team members make our days smoother and more enjoyable.

What do you do outside of the office?
I like to spend my free time travelling, hiking, reading or simply enjoying quiet time with my husband, son, dog and cat.

What is one item on your bucket list?
My personal philosophy is to live life to the fullest. I try to travel and expose myself to different countries and cultures as much as possible. I hope one day to see glaciers of Iceland, baobab trees of Madagascar and astonishing architecture of Europe.
