Patient Coordinator

I graduated from Elmhurst College with a Bachelor of Science, and work with Dr. Puri in an administrative capacity and as an advocate for our patients to their insurance companies. I truly enjoy meeting new people and making their visit to the dental office a pleasant, stress-free experience. It’s nice to know how much our patients trust us with their dental health.

I am married to Tony, our dental lab owner/technician, and we have two wonderful children. In my free time I love to travel, go to plays and sporting events, and spend time with family and friends.


Gina

Patient Coordinator

Providing patient care is a rewarding profession that I am honored to be part of. I really enjoy helping patients with their scheduling and insurance needs because it helps them obtain the oral care they require. Though I have only been working in the dental field for a short while, I have already learned so much and continue to learn more each day. I am exceptionally fortunate to have discovered an office and a dental team that I cherish working with. Dr. Puri really cares about his patients and gives each of them the time and effort they deserve.

I have been with my better half for more than 8 years and we have 4 wonderful children. I have lived in the Chicago suburbs for years and enjoy being part of my community. In my spare time we like to coordinate as many family activities as resonabily possible. Otherwise my spare time is spent cooking, cleaning, and unwinding.

I graduated from West Chicago Community High School back in 2005. I decided to go into the medical field because I enjoy helping others. Around 2009 I took a CNA course and worked with elderly for about 9 years. I joined Smiles Dental team back in 2016. My work experience as Dr. Puri's dental assistant has been a posititive one. I love helping patients obtain their perfect smile and heathly mouth. I could not imagine a better place to work.

In my spare time I like to spend time with the family and my dog. I enjoy hanging out with my friends.

On-Site Certified Full Denture Technician

I achieved my certified dental certification in 2006 and have more than 30 years of experience working in the dental field. I am detail-oriented and a perfectionist when it comes to fabricating appliances or restorations that fit just right and make our patients smile. I have a heart and am truly concerned with each patient’s specific case. I have solutions and remedies to their denture or partial problem — solutions that will make a difference and improve their lives. No situation is too difficult to resolve or improve upon!

I have been happily married since 1993 and we have two children. When I’m not running my business or spending time with my family, I can be found playing the drums.
