Goshgarian Orthodontics: Team Bio’s
“My brother and sister had braces by Dr. Goshgarian and I always appreciated how he made them feel as patients. When there was an opportunity to lend my expertise as an Insurance Specialist to this organization, I jumped at the chance! I’ve been on board with Goshgarian Orthodontics since July 2015, and I am excited to continue doing what I love and working with finances at Goshgarian Orthodontics. It is fun getting to know our patients and their families and helping them find appointments that work with their schedules, and fee plans that work with their budgets.
During my free time I enjoy cooking, watching movies and spending time with my little family. I’m a mommy of a little toddler that I chase around all the time! Also, I am a fan of all things Disney and Harry Potter! (I am still waiting on my letter from Hogwarts)”
“I graduated from SIUC in 2003 with a Dental Technology major and have been working in orthodontics ever since. As Dr. Goshgarian’s Treatment Coordinator, I love having the opportunity to meet with all of our new patients and find out how our team can help them achieve the smile they have always wanted. While away from the office I enjoy going to concerts and hanging out in the great outdoors with my husband, daughter, and our dog Charlie. I also love to cheer on the Bears, Blackhawks, and Cubbies (all with my cat Wrigley hanging by my side.)”
“Making one person smile can change the world. Maybe not the whole world, but their world”… I’m happy to bring my smile to the Goshgarian Orthodontics team. After working in cosmetics and customer service for the last 12+ years, I’m very excited for this new journey.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family. I am very blessed with two little boys who ALWAYS keep me on my toes. My family and I are die-hard Dallas Cowboy fans, so every Sunday during football season is “Sunday Fun-day” and we are together cheering them on.”
“I have been in the dental field for over 20 years, and I can honestly say I love everything about it! I
started off in general dentistry before I transitioned to the specialty of Orthodontics as an assistant and I
feel it is one of the best decisions I have made in my dental career. The bonds that are formed with
patients of all ages makes my heart smile, and seeing their smile after treatment is completed is the best
feeling of all!
Boy, did I luck out when I got hired at Goshgarian Orthodontics! Dr. G is not only an amazing
orthodontist, but he is a caring person who gives each patient his full attention no matter their age. He
cares about the final result of each patient and makes sure all are happy with the end result. The staff I
am so lucky to be a part of is definitely the cherry on top. Working with each one of these gals is like
working with my sisters, truly, and Dr. G is my big brother!
In my spare time, I love bowling, which I have been doing just as long as I’ve been in the dental field. I
am also a big fan of watching movies. If I told you how much I love music and going to concerts, well,
that would take a whole other page…. Yep, that’s how much I love music!”
“I graduated from the dental assistant program at GTC of Kenosha, Wi in 2014 and have been working in orthodontics ever since! When I was a child, I had a crazy intensive orthodontic treatment plan. That experience sparked a huge interest for me in the dental field.
The treatment outcome and the reaction of the patients seeing their beautiful new smiles for the first time is the best part of my job. I love connecting with my patients and helping them feel comfortable the whole time they are in the office.
In my spare time I enjoy spending as much time outdoors as possible with my Siberian husky, Xena. We love going for runs through the forest preserve as well as visiting the dog park. I am also a part of a racing family, so summer weekends are spent locally or at out of town dirt tracks!”
