Dental Hygienists

My name is Rosalba, but everyone calls me Pava. Pava is a very unique nickname given to me by my grandmother when I was a little.  I am the middle child of nine siblings.

My obsession for dentistry started when I was in first grade. Due to the large family we had, my parents couldn’t afford dental care for any of us; the only opportunity we had for dental care was through an awesome organization called Give Kids a Smile.

When I saw how compassionate the doctors were towards me, I made a promise that one day I would do the same for others. I have 20 years of dental experience under my belt. I worked in general dentistry for eight years and 12 years in orthodontics and now I’m a board certified Registered Dental Hygienist!

Out of the office:

On my free time, I like to spend time with my daughter Hayley; we like going to the movies, biking, and going on vacations. Europe is on our bucket list!

Helping patients is our passion, no matter what their smile needs may be. Take a look at what some of our current and previous patients think of Carol Stream & Elgin Dental Associates.

“The real star of the show was Jen, my dental hygienist. She noted my anxieties and was so understanding and gentle with the whole process. She never made me feel bad about neglecting my oral care and just said she was happy I was there now. If you have any fear about going to the dentist, I HIGHLY recommend Carol Stream Dental.”

“I absolutely love everyone at the office! Everyone is so welcoming and caring. They all seem to love what they do. They are very professional and explain everything in detail. I no longer live in Elgin but I will continue to come here because of how amazing they are.”

“This practice is phenomenal with children. I have been taking my daughter here for 6 years and today she had a baby tooth pulled. Dr. Johnny and the hygienist were amazing! It was a positive and painless experience for my daughter. I definitely recommend their office for pediatric care.”
