Hello! My name is Jen and I graduated from the College of DuPage hygiene program in 2006. I am blessed to have worked for some amazing dentists over the past 14 years and am very excited to call "Main Street Smiles" my new home. My ultimate goal for my patients is to ensure they receive a thorough cleaning while making them feel comfortable in the dental chair. When I'm not at work, I am home spending time with my husband and 10 month old son. I look forward to meeting you and your families!
