Director of First Impressions
Hi, I’m Monica the director of first impressions. My favorite part of working at Hinsdale Ortho is the connections I make with the families. With ortho we get to see our patients much more often than most offices, so I essentially get to see some of our patients grow up and get to share in so much of their lives. Outside of the office I enjoy spending time with my family playing games (Scrabble is our favorite), making homemade pizza, going for walks with our dog Paxton and hitting the bike trails.
Hi, I’m Ari one of the clinical assistants. The best thing about working at Hinsdale Ortho is my coworkers. They truly feel like family and make each day so fun! When I’m not at work you can find me chasing around my one year old daughter, Scarlett with my husband Kyle and dog Kona! I like to spend as much time outside as possible so we go on lots of runs/walks, listen to live music and go out on our boat! When I’m not outdoors one of my favorite things to do is try new recipes, so I spend lots of time in the kitchen either baking or cooking to share with family and friends!
Hi, I’m Jamie one of the clinical assistants. My fav thing about working at Hinsdale Ortho is the patients! They are always fun and I love hearing about what’s going on in their lives. From graduations and weddings to birth announcements and birthday parties. The patients keep it fun and make me always wanting to come back for more. I love that we get to see them on a regular basis as if we are family to get all the updates. I love the outdoors. I love riding four wheelers, motorcycles, horseback riding and traveling. I am obsessed with Chipotle and coca cola from McDonald’s. I have 1 dog named Bella and 2 cats named Mylo and Meow. I am married and have 2 grown daughters and I have been in the orthodontic field for 25 years!
Hey friends! I’m Kelly, one of the clinical assistants. I’ve been in ortho since 2015 and love coming to work every day (no, really. I LOVE TEETH!) My husband and I are new parents to our daughter Heidi! You can catch me regularly antiquing or planning our next garden project. I thrive off human connection, so being able to interact with our family of patients each day makes working at Hinsdale Ortho a second home to me.
Hello, I am Jill one of the clinical assistants. I love working in orthodontics because I’m constantly meeting new [people. Before I started in this field, I was a hairstylist, so I’ve always enjoyed making people look and feel their best! When I’m not at work you find me binging a new show or reading a good book!
Hi friends, I’m Danielle, the record coordinator! My favorite part of working at Hinsdale Ortho is building relationships with our patients and seeing their confidence skyrocket after treatment. We get to see you for a few years about every 2 months, so we really get to know you and it’s so fun learning about everyone and keeping in touch with their life. Outside of the office, I love taco bell, game nights with my friends and family, being creative, and traveling or trying new adventures with my husband, Ilya. I am also a professional wedding/lifestyle photographer. I have my own business (Danielle Rose Photography) and love capturing timeless moments in people’s lives. I am very blessed to also have the best work fam that supports me in everything.
Hi, I’m Brooke the treatment coordinator. I am all about family time! I have three kids of my own and I enjoy being outdoors, reading a good book and trying new and tasty food. Before my career in ortho, I was a massage therapist, so I believe self-care and relaxation are very important! I love meeting new people and seeing everyone’s amazing transformations here at Hinsdale Ortho!
Hi, I’m Kelly C, the financial coordinator. My favorite part of working at Hinsdale Ortho is my coworkers. They have welcomed me as part of the family and are always here to educate me in this new environment and support me along the way! The bonus is experiencing all the “smile journeys” along the way for our patients! One of my favorite parts at the end of the day is coming home to Charlie, who is 75 pounds of pure mutt happiness; AND my husband, Tim, of course : P Outside of work, my biggest joy is time spent with my family and friends. When I am not here, I am all about warm outdoor fun (kayaking, walking, biking). When not outdoors, I love to read, play Euchre & just about all card and board games, crafts, and photos photos photos!
Hi, I’m Dave our lab technician. Best part of my job is the Hinsdale Ortho team. Feels like one big family. I also enjoy seeing our patients final results. I’ve been a lab technician for 25+ years. I have a beautiful wife and two daughters that I love. I also enjoy biking and love to bike to work.
