Beth - Hygienist
My career in the dental field began in 1988 and I was happy to join Dr. Balas in 1994. Over the years, I have met so many families from our community, and I feel honored that they trust me to help them live a healthy and pain-free life. I want to give each patient the individual care they deserve and a smile they can be proud of. I have lived in Arlington Heights for over 20 years. My husband and I are busy raising our three daughters. In my spare time I love to read and run.
Donna - Dental Assistant
I work alongside Dr. Balas with all aspects of patient care, including taking X-rays and maintaining sterilization. I love coming to work each day knowing that I am helping people feel good about their dental health and their smile. Dr Balas is very patient and has taught me so much. He truly cares about his patients and his staff. I have 22 year old daughter who shares my love of animals. I enjoy mountain biking, walking, and going to the movies.
Judy - Dental Assistant
I love working with patients and taking them from nervous to calm while they obtain a new smile created by Dr. Balas. I've been in the dental field for 15 years and come to work each day excited about new opportunities that dentistry presents for people. Dr. Balas' skills are amazing and watching him perform dentistry is like watching a sculptor. I was born and raised in the Northwest suburbs and enjoy having time with my daughters Macy and Dana. We are currently reading the Harry Potter series together. Working out and running are my stress reducers!
Annette - Patient Relations Coordinator
I have always enjoyed helping others and the dental office provides just that opportunity. It's always a pleasure to see people achieve their goal for a healthy and beautiful smile. I have been in the dental field since 2005 and have had prior expereince in helping others utilize their insurance benefits. My responsibilitiesinclude researching benefits for our patients and assisting them in scheduling appointments. I have found Dr Balas to be a kind and caring person, as well as a wonderful dentist. It is truly a pleasure to be part of his team.
Baltimore, Maryland was my home town until moving to Illinois in 1994. My husband and I have 4 grown children. We have replaced taking care of them with the caring of two adopted dogs.
Sandy - Dental Hygienist
I have been providing patient care, dental maintenance, and education for almost 30 years, and with this practice since 2009. I love getting to know our patients and helping them to achieve excellent dental health. I enjoy working with Dr. Balas for so many reasons, but most of all because of the excellent care he provides and his conservative approach to dentistry. I have been married for 30 years and have two adult children. I love to volunteer at my church's dental clinic, bike and hike in warm weather as well as paint, and read. The newest addition to our family is our puppy, Tucker who keeps me busy!
Theresa - Dental Hygienist
I have been a dental hygienist since 1973 and have spent the past 12 years with Dr. Balas and his team. Each and every patient I have the pleasure of treating has a unique and interesting story to tell, and I love hearing all their different life stories. We are such a team-oriented office. We always have a game plan as to how we will take care of our patients' needs. I have been married for 39 years with two adult children and three wonderful grandchildren. I come from a family of eight children. Most of all, I love to laugh!
