We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
Jana is the smiling face that greets you when you enter our office. She is happy to answer your calls and assist with making your appointments. Jana and her husband Dirk, reside in Arlington Heights with their two children, Emily and Erik. When she is not helping our patients in the office, Jana enjoys traveling (she's been to so many places!), playing tennis, exercising, and spending time with her family.
Lynn is here to help you handle all your insurance claims and answer any questions you might have about your insurance coverage and financial contract. She enjoys making that part of this process as stress-free as possible for our patients. Lynn and her husband Kyle, along with their three daughters Hannah, Emily, and Katie, live in Arlington Heights. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and running. She also happens to be extremely creative and handy...we love that about her!
Kim grew up in Kiel, Wisconsin, and received her degree from Lakeshore Technical College. She has worked as an orthodontic assistant for more than 26 years. She loves to watch patients grow through our practice. She is happy to answer any questions that patients and their families may have. Kim enjoys spending time with her family, watching their sporting events, and spending time outdoors. She also has an amazing memory and makes all our patients feel special!
Elizabeth is an orthodontic assistant and our lab technician. She has worked in orthodontics for more than 20 years and has been with Willow Lake Orthodontics since 2013. Elizabeth is dedicated to providing comfortable and quality care for our patients. Her gentle hands treat each patient as if he or she were her own. She loves to see positive changes in patients’ self-confidence as their smiles improve throughout treatment. Aside from caring for our patients, Elizabeth takes care of us by bringing us healthy treats and reminding us to eat well :) Away from the office, Elizabeth loves spending time with her husband and two children, cooking, and baking with her daughter.
Letty is a part of our orthodontic assisting team. She interacts with patients on a personal level, and gets to know a little more about them at each visit. She loves working with Drs. Siargos and Israel, and appreciates their high standards and pride in their work. Letty and her husband Andres have two sons, Eduardo and Terry. She treasures every moment the family spends together and captures their smiles in her memory. She also like to take walks by the beach at night, and can be found on the soccer fields cheering for her boys. Her infectious laugh makes us all laugh even more!
Jamie just recently started working in the world of orthodontics and it seems like it's in her blood! She prides herself on getting to know patients and meeting their needs with a smile on her face, and we have to agree! She enjoys live music, the outdoors and camping (we'll keep her anyway ;) and spending quality time with family and friends!
Cristina loves the energy that children bring and because of that, she enjoys finding the kid inside every patient she works with. She strives for the better things in life. She started swimming two years ago as a hobby to build endurance and now enjoys it more than ever. She has a forever expanding sneaker collection (how many???) that comes from her love of shopping. She never traveled much when she was younger, so traveling in the years to come is definitely at the top of her list!
Alex is one of newest members of our team as our Marketing and New Patient Coordinator. She is a new mom and loves taking her son on adventures! She is a huge tennis fan, a retired synchronized swimmer (who isn't??), and an avid Pinterest-er. Karaoke song of choice: anything Bruno Mars (that's why we love her).
