Barb - Schedule Coordinator
I met Dr. Bennardo in 2002 while we were both involved with Elgin Junior Service Board which was a health based organization that provided dental care for students in School District U-46. After I saw the compassion and professionalism his office provided each student that I brought into his office, I knew he would become my lifelong dentist. Now, I enjoy working with a team that believes in giving each patient the best care possible. I'm a very busy mom of two teenage daughters. We enjoy boating and spending time watching them ride their horses.
Tessa - Registered Dental Hygienist
I received my dental hygiene degree from Harper College in 2017. I pursued a career in dental hygiene because I had always loved going to the dentist growing up. I hope to give all of my patients the same positive experience. I enjoy teaching my patients about the importance of oral health. In my free time I love playing tennis, walking my dogs, and spending time with my family and friends.
