Joining our practice in 2008, Beth is a graduate of Praire State College, with an A.A.S. in Dental Hygiene and an A.A. in Business. As all her patients know, she loves the field of dental hygiene and making a difference in the health and education of her patients. She exceeds the required continuing education hours, with a goal of 100+ every three years. Her passion for hygiene has inspired her to help start a dental clinic at an orphanage in the Dominican Republic. At her last visit in September of 2014, two of the young adults had been accepted into dental school. She could not be prouder. In addition, she has assisted as the sole hygienist on a mobile dental team to the rural mountains of Mexico with El Nino Rey. She is a member of the Illinois State Dental Society and participated in the first Illinois State Mission of Mercy, which offered free dental care to over 1900 people over two days.

In addtion to her hygiene responsibilities, Beth assists the practice in marketing and website development.
