Dental Hygienist

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.

Dental Hygienist

It has been said that to feel truly accomplished, you must love what you do. The Lakeview Smiles family has provided this for me and joining the team here has been the best decision I’ve made professionally. When I stepped through the doors for the first time I immediately felt a connection with Dr. Lee, her staff and my new team. I was drawn to the team’s compassion for every patient and their dedication to ensuring the highest quality of care. The Lakeview Smiles Team always goes the extra mile! I was born and raised in Chicago and graduated from Sanford Brown in Fort Lauderdale, FL. I have over 13 years of experience in the dental field and from the first day I started working as an assistant and fell in love with the dental world. I have since gone back to school and received my license as a hygienist in IL.

When I am not in the office I enjoy spending time with family, my dogs, working out and cooking. Remember it’s never too late to find your happiness! And always wear a smile.

The doctors and team of Lakeview Smiles emphasize strong teamwork to achieve long-lasting patient relationships through excellent individualized care. I value a work environment where I am surrounded by an inspiring team of fun and hard-working dental professionals.

As a dental hygienist, I enjoy educating patients about the importance of oral health care and providing preventative dental services to help each patient obtain the optimal healthy smile. When I’m not working I enjoy being outdoors exploring the city, hanging out with family, and binge-watching tv shows.
