There are many hygienists out there – but we are looking for that right person to complete us! Here’s a little bit about our practice and the patients we serve: • Our core principle – education! o Education for the team – so that we are always providing the best treatment backed by the latest science o Education for the patient – so that the patient understands the importance of their oral health and knows why early detection and treatment of dental conditions matters. • We serve patients of all ages and backgrounds in the very diverse community of Gurnee, IL. Our patients come from may surrounding communities for our unique, comfortable atmosphere. • We offer a wide range of hours and dates to ensure we can reduce barriers to care. We offer some evenings and weekends so that our patients don’t have to make the difficult decision of missing work – and they love us for that! Our main goal is to always be there for our patients, even if it means staying a little later or working a few weekends. • Our practice truly is unique- we offer not only digital xrays and high def intra oral photography, but also the latest in digital dentistry: Cerec same day crown and veneers, Solea laser for no shot/no drill fillings, and Orthophos 3D imaging, and more!

If you believe you are the missing piece to our puzzle, we want to hear from you! As we grow, we need the right people to help us achieve our goals and establish ourselves as the leader of dental care in our community. Our reputation is one we are proud of and strive to maintain through leadership, knowledge, and quality. Our Lead Dental Hygienist must have a long term vision with our practice and be a key player in achieving our goals.

Do you have what it takes to be one of us?
