Meet Our Team

Your Tinley Park Dental Office All-Stars

Lisa
Registered Dental Hygienist

Lisa has been working with our patients for about three years after graduating from the Fox College Dental Hygiene Program. She loves being able to help people improve their health, while also being able to educate them to choose the best options for their individual health needs. She holds both a Bachelors and Masters degree and hopes to to teach other people who want to enter they hygiene field. She is a big part of the team-building practices here at our office, and she’s always full of fun, upbeat energy.

Outside of work, Lisa and her husband have a son named Isaiah. They love spending time together as a family, hosting BBQ’s, and going out to eat at Joe’s Italian Villa in Palos, where she happened to work through high school.


Jamie
Registered Dental Hygienist

Jamie has been with us since 2018, but she’s actually been working in the dental industry for about 12 years. She’s a graduate of Prairie State College and will be the first to admit that she’s been “obsessed with people’s teeth” since she was a youngster. She love being a superstar hygienist, putting people’s fears at ease, treating issues like periodontal disease and seeing improvement when the patient comes to their next appointment, and being able to give people that awesome feeling of freshly cleaned teeth. She says that our employees work great together as a team, and she often starts the day by sharing encouraging words or stories with her coworkers.

Outside of the dental office, Jamie loves spending time with her husband John and their three children and three dogs. She’s really into Crossfit, and is also getting back into yoga as well.


Nichole
Office Manager

Nichole is here to help with just about anything that our patients or staff need on a day-to-day basis. Whether that involves helping to coordinate a patient’s insurance benefits to throwing a birthday lunch for a staff member, somehow she gets it all magically done with a smile. This comes naturally to her since her mother and her two sisters all worked in the dental industry, too. She loves being able to help patients feel comfortable coming to the dentist, and also helping them solve financial questions or problems regarding treatment.

Outside of work, Nichole likes to socialize with friends and spend time with her boyfriend, Jake. She also loves being outdoors and enjoying the beauty of nature.


Emma
Dental Assistant

As a Dental Assistant, you’ll find Emma helping Dr. Markus with nearly every treatment and procedure he performs. A family member inspired her to go into assisting, and then when she started taking the coursework at Moraine Valley Community College, she found out she was really good at it. After graduating, she still continues to take continuing education courses, such as scan and design training, so that she can keep up with changes in dental technology and techniques. She loves how much attention goes into making each and every patient comfortable, no matter if they’ve just come in for their bi-annual cleaning or if they’ve had a dental emergency.

Outside of work, Emma likes to volunteer in her community, and she’d love to teach or mentor students in the future. She loves going on nature walks, playing video games with her son, and socializing with family and friends. She and her fiancé are frequent visitors of La Vieja Castilla in Blue Island for their great Spanish food.
