I believe the Lakeview Smiles doctors and team members provide our patients with a great deal of dental experience and gentle care. We ease our patients’ anxiety and help each achieve a healthy mouth with the utmost professionalism and standard of care.

Arta assesses the patient’s oral health through oral cancer screening, radiographs, and periodontal charting. This supports the doctor in creating an individualized course of treatment. When she’s not at the office, Arta enjoys walking her dogs, binge-watching documentaries, and exploring Chicago’s great food scene.

 

Chaniqua

Insurance/Financial Coordinator

At Lakeview Smiles, everyone shares the same vision and is dedicated to the mission: we want and strive to provide the best care for our patients. I enjoy working as a team to help our patients and find satisfaction in playing a role that makes a difference in people’s lives.

Chaniqua works closely with patients on financial matters. In addition to developing payment agreements, she handles insurance filings and paperwork, ensuring patients are able to maximize their benefits. When she’s not busy at work, Chaniqua likes going to the movies, exploring the city, enjoying live music, and time with family and close friends.

 

Donata

Director of Clinical Operations

I like helping patients feel comfortable and enjoy their visits to Lakeview Smiles. Our team is a fun-loving work family and Dr. Lee empowers us to grow in our careers. This encourages us to develop additional skills and constantly seek to provide the best experience to each and every patient.

Donata assists in patient care and communication, oversees our clinical operations, and implements new technology into the practice then arranges training for the team. She also handles the hiring and training of our clinical staff. Donata’s free-time is spent with her young son, who is always on the go. They enjoy swimming, playing bocce ball, Frisbee golf, and Sundays with their family.

I enjoy seeing our patients leave the dental chair happy with the results and the care we have provided. Working as a team with the doctors and Lakeview Smiles staff is rewarding, as we all believe in the same goal: providing excellent dentistry in a welcoming atmosphere.

Jenny offers a variety of patient care, working chairside with the dentist and making sure patients are comfortable during their procedures. She is also responsible for ensuring the building and their services meet the needs of the people that work in them. Outside of the office, Jenny enjoys time with her three children and their three dogs. She loves going to church, likes reading the Bible and books, and loves sports, too.

It is incredible to see the happiness on the patient’s face when we finish and they have a healthy and bright smile they love. Everyone at Lakeview Smiles feels like a family: the doctors, staff, and our patient family.

Katarisha works closely with the doctor, providing five-star service so each patient has a positive, comfortable experience in the dental chair.

I love what I do, especially meeting our new patients and helping them feel comfortable in our office. Everyone at Lakeview Smiles always has a positive attitude and a go-getter mindset. Together, we make sure we’re providing the best dental care available.

Lisette welcomes our new patients and takes many of their initial diagnostic images, including photos and X-rays. She also handles sterilization, cleaning and setting-up the rooms, and some front desk work, including verifying insurance. In addition to working here, Lisette is a licensed nail technician and mother of a young daughter and son.

I like making sure our patients have an outstanding experience at Lakeview Smiles. From the moment they first enter the office until they leave, we want them to feel at home and comfortable. Dr. Lee and my coworkers have the same goal. We work together to make sure our patients know we care.

Monica’s primary focus is on the patient care experience. She also handles the scheduling for administrative staff, as well as hiring and training of new team members. Outside of work, Monica spends much of her time with her two young children. She loves seeing new movies and hanging out with close friends and her mother.

Registered Dental Hygienist

I enjoy getting to know patients on a personal level. Our conversations are fun and also an opportunity to educate each person on the importance of oral health and hygiene. I am happy to be part of the Lakeview Smiles team because our doctors and staff always put patients’ needs first.

Rheanna provides individual care to her patients. While performing cleanings and other preventive and maintenance care, she offers information patients can use to keep their mouth and smiles healthy. When she’s not working, or enjoying a Netflix marathon, Rheanna can be found cooking, dancing, drawing, or spending time with friends and family.

I like the challenge of helping people understand that Lakeview Smiles is a different kind of dental office. When people learn that visits here are comfortable and stress-free, they actually look forward to taking care of their oral health. We have a diverse, talented team of caring doctors and staff who make patient comfort a top priority.

Sienna handles our promotions, community outreach, and all aspects of marketing the practice: planning and coordinating events, social media interactions, and is our Clientele Liaison. Outside of work, Sienna spends time with her puppy, Prince, and likes staying fit and healthy. She also likes to try new restaurants, cook at home, listen to music, and watch reality baking shows. Sienna is currently enrolled in her second year of an MBA program at the DePaul University School of Business.

I like meeting new people and getting to share my knowledge. I never tire of seeing people learn why it’s important to take care of their oral health and make positive changes as a result. Working at Lakeview Smiles is amazing. We all understand each other and have a passion for dentistry. We’re all here for the right reason: dedication to our patients.

Tiffany works one-to-one with her patients, offering oral hygiene education while providing gentle dental cleanings. A newlywed, as of August 2018, Tiffany loves time with her family and friends, traveling, and cuddling-up on the couch with her cat, Monroe, and watching Netflix.

I like creating a bond with patients and getting to know them on an individual level. This builds trust and makes nervous patients feel safer and more relaxed during visits. I love being part of Lakeview Smiles as we are all dedicated to our patients and come together to provide the proper care and dental experience for our patient family.

Tori works chairside, assisting the doctors with patient care. She strives to make sure patients know and understand we are here to provide them with everything they need and want from dentistry.
