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.



Janeth – Dental Assistant

I have been in the dental field since 2007. I started out working at the front desk and later moved to the clinical aspect of dentistry as an assistant. I fell in love with assisting and especially enjoy seeing the benefits of the dental care we provide to our patients. I am happy knowing that I have helped people gain confidence in their smile and overall oral health. In my free time I enjoy yoga and attending my son’s sporting events.



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!



Urszula - Dental Hygienist

I worked along Dr. Balas’ side as his assistant from 2007 through 2011. Dr. Balas and his staff inspired me to go forward with my career in dentistry. I graduated with honors from Harper College dental hygiene program in 2013, and now I am very excited to provide exceptional care to my patients as a hygienist, helping them to achieve and maintain a healthy smile.

My husband and I came to the United States twenty years ago from Poland, and we now live in Mr. Prospect raising our teenage daughter. We love to spend time together as a family.
