Dental Hygienists

I am a first generation Jamaican, born in Chicago and raised in Schaumburg. I didn’t grow up knowing the importance of going to the dentist. However, when I learned about the impact of dental health, I wanted to tell everyone! This was my main motivation but I also credit my Grandfather. I loved spending time with him and one of our special moments was when we would brush our teeth together, so this also spurred me on to become a hygienist.

I love helping people in any way I can. Being able to get to know people and help them improve their health is truly the best part of my job. I strive to be genuine, caring, and friendly with all my patients, which has led to the formation of long-lasting relationships.

I studied Dental Hygiene at Harper College and graduated from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville with a Bachelors in Biological Science/Medical Science and a Minor in Chemistry. I enjoy working at both our Carol Stream and Elgin offices.

Out of the office:

I am a very active person. I’m currently learning to swim and enjoy dancing, playing sports, and board games. I love to spend time with my family and go to the movies.

Your Hero:

My mother. As a single parent, she raised me and my younger brother. She worked very hard to make sure we both graduated from college and became successful.

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.”

“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.”

“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.”
