Meet our Dental Assistants
Dental Assistants in Burbank, ILThe dental assistants in our office are exceptionally talented in providing czarist support for all of the procedures that the doctors provide. Each has to be ready to provide whatever the doctor or the patient needs at split-second notice. While the dentist is focused on the job at hand, his assistant is closely monitoring the status of the patient while at the same time providing to the needs of the doctor - it's a very intense, demanding position.
Behind the scenes, the dental assistants are cleaning and setting up the treatment rooms, providing medications for the patients, taking and developing x-rays, arranging laboratory work and sterilizing instruments.
These are our dental assistants:
I have been working as Dr. Kowalik's assistant for 22 years. I received my Dental Assisting degree from Robert Morris College in 1981. I live in Lisle with my husband Joe and my two sons Brandon, age 19 and Nick, age 16. Brandon is a freshman at Ohio State University majoring in Engineering and Nick is a junior at Downers Grove North High School. In the fall we can be found at our sons' football games and in the summer we try to get up to our boat in Wisconsin. I enjoy visiting with all of you when you come for your appointments and feel that I have a second family at our office.
Although I work primarily with Dr. Kowalik, I also specialize in x-rays and bleaching procedures. I graduated from the dental assistant's program from Morton College where I received an Associate's Degree. I have been working in the dental field since 1974 and have had the pleasure to be a member of such a fine office as that of Dr. Kowalik and since 1990.
I have been married for 37 years and have one daughter, Jillian who is 26 years old. She is married to a Marine who served in Iraq. He is a wounded warrior. I now have a beautiful granddaughter. Her name is Juinevere and she is 2 and a half years old. My husband and I are involved in the Model A Restorers Club. My husband did the movie "Road to Perdition" with our Model A Ford Pick-Up and he met Tom Hanks. Our love for the antique cars has opened many horizons for us. We were contacted to do the new Johnny Depp movie, Dillinger.
