All of us at Michael S. Roessler DDS Cosmetic & Family Dentistry are excited to meet you. We can’t wait to help you keep your smile bright and healthy. Plus, our office is bilingual (Spanish and English). You can find out more about our team here.
Terri joined our staff in 2016 and has 31 years of clinical experience. Additional coursework has enabled her to expand her clinical capabilities and skills. She is certified to administer local anesthesia, perform basic life support, and utilize American Eagle ZP technology instrumentation. In order to provide optimal care for her patients, Terri remains current with dental and dental hygiene procedures and products and attends numerous continuing education courses on a regular basis. These have included Myths, Legends, and Realities of Over-the-Counter Products; Opioid Addiction and Dental Professionals; Advanced Hygiene Therapy; and Faces of Oral Cancer.
The best part of Terri’s job is interacting with patients. She has yet to meet anyone who wants to hear about the evils of not flossing. Instead, explaining the correlation between oral health and overall health, evaluating a patient’s oral health, and recommending home care products and techniques are far more effective ways of educating her patients. Through many years of experience, her sense of humor has proven to be one of her greatest clinical tools, especially when working with dental-phobic patients.
Outside of the office, Terri spends much of her time helping her husband manage and market their side business “Woodwork By Design.” She is also actively involved with the Illinois Dental Hygienists’ Association and has her own column in their newsletter.
Leticia has worked for Dr. Roessler since 2015, although she has been a dental assistant for over 30 years. She has been trained in HIPAA, is certified in CPR, and has also attended many in-office lectures. Leticia’s favorite part of her job is working as a team to help our patients achieve their dental goals and seeing their joy with the end results. Away from the office, she enjoys spending time with her family, especially her grandkids, and working out.
Crystal is one of our front desk receptionists and serves as our patient coordinator. She has been with our practice since 2018. What Crystal enjoys most about her job is being able to learn new things, meeting so many different people, and making new friendships with everyone here. When she isn’t at the office working, she enjoys boating on the lake with friends and family.
