A smile is a universal sign of happiness; the most recognizable facial expression. People can spot a smile from up to 300ft away. Smiling relieves stress, boosts your immune system, makes you more attractive, more likely to get a promotion, and it’s contagious! I can’t think of a better profession to have picked than to be able to make my patients more confident in their smiles.

I have always been a detail-oriented person and combined with a love for working with my hands, dentistry was a natural choice. In college, I worked as a dental assistant for several years, where I was reassured that I was making the right choice for myself. Although I loved every area of dentistry, I excelled in orthodontics. Every day I get to witness my patients’ smile transformations and that in turn puts a huge smile on my own face.

I was born and raised in Poland, but have resided in Chicago since the age of 10. I obtained my bachelor’s in psychology from DePaul University in 2002 and then attended SIU School of Dental Medicine, graduating with high honors in 2006. I completed my residency program in orthodontics in 2009 at UIC College of Dentistry. I am a strong believer in being a life long student and am regularly taking continuing education courses.

Other than orthodontics, my other passion in life is traveling. One of my favorite quotes is “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” Along with traveling, I developed a hobby in photography. Whether across the globe or walking the streets of Chicago, I have my camera in hand.

I look forward to meeting you and being witness to your very own smile transformation.
