Front Desk

Jennifer
Jennifer – Office Manager

I have been the office manager for North Creek Dental Care for the past 16 years. My husband Jeff and I have two sons, Jeremy and Jacob. I grew up in Lockport and attended Providence Catholic High School in New Lenox. In my free time, I enjoy playing golf and tennis and spend as much time as possible in Arizona. I love helping our patients and seeing their smiles! I feel especially proud when I help someone who comes in scared and in pain, and see them leave happy and pain-free!

Biancca
Bianca – Patient Concierge

I have been an Oak Forest resident for most of my life. I’m very happy to be able to raise my two kids – Biankelly, 12, and Lucas, 2 – in the same town. When I’m not working, I enjoy reading and watching baking videos, which I later try to recreate (sometimes very well, other times not so much). Throughout my time working at North Creek, I have come to love the sense of family, it truly is a second home, and I love seeing members of my community come in and receive such amazing dental care.

What I love most about working at North Creek Dental Care is spending time with the dental care team, and how we work together to ensure the best care for our patients. It truly does feel like an extended family.
