I have been the Office Manager here at Oak Brook Smiles since March of 2007. I am also Dr. Haque’s wife! I have a background in Biomedical Engineering and worked in the biotech field for a number of years. Having taken some management courses and the curiosity of how I can effectively contribute to the growth of my husband’s practice are what catapulted me into the field of dentistry!
Leading a wonderful and caring team of dental health professionals and administrative staff is what I enjoy most about my new career path. I’ve even strengthened my skills by acquiring a certificate from the Northwestern University’s Kellogg School Executive Management Program for Dentists.
My husband and I have two wonderful children, Maaz and Sana. I enjoy spending my time with them as much as possible. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking and exercising. I even ran my first Chicago Half Marathon in May ’16 and beat my time goal!.
Agnes Farin, RDHDental Hygienist
I have been working in the dental field since 1997. I have advanced from laboratory technician through dental assistant and finally, to dental hygienist. I graduated from the College of DuPage Dental Hygiene Program in May 2009. I joined the Oak Brook Smiles family in May 2011.
I am very passionate about making my patients feel comfortable and at ease while visiting our dental center. I always encourage open communication with my patients and provide gentle care. I value education and I enjoy sharing information and tips which promote oral and systemic health. I have taken many continuing education courses in areas which include laser gum therapy, local anesthesia, nitrous oxide and periodontal therapy.
I was born and raised in Poland and I came to the United States in 1996. I am married to my college sweetheart and we have two beautiful daughters and a precious son. I enjoy spending my spare time with my family either playing or sightseeing and trying new recipes that my family can enjoy!
Janae BlancoFinancial Coordinator
I have been in the dental industry since 2000 and graduated with my Business Administration associates degree from Mesa Community College in 2000. I was born and raised in Arizona.
I have had the pleasure of working here since December of 2013. My role at Oak Brook Smiles is Financial Coordinator. I handle all account billing aspects and even medical billing, which allows patients to utilize their medical insurance to help cover the costs of their dental treatment.
I really enjoy working at Oak Brook Smiles because it’s not just a job… you are part of a dental family and not to mention I have the most awesome BOSSES! We all strive to support each other while making sure that we meet all the needs of our patients. I enjoy helping patients with their billing needs. I really try to connect with our patients and listen to each of their oral health concerns so that I can effectively coordinate with Dr. Haque and the patients’ insurance benefits and help patients obtain their dental treatment within their financial budgets. Over the years here, I have developed great professional patient relationships.
I have 3 amazing children that keep me busy in my spare time. Most of my free time is taken up by hauling my kids to their events such as gymnastics, track, and soccer. I also enjoy working out, hiking, and spending time with family and friends.
Tori GonzalezPatient Coordinator
I began my career as a Dental Assistant and have transitioned to Patient Coordinator. Between coordinating patients’ appointment schedules and their insurance benefits, I also strive to create constructive financial plans to accommodate our patients’ dental treatment needs and concerns. I’m also the person who responds to your text messages… a nifty way we are now able to communicate with our patients in addition to phone calls and emails!
It’s my priority to help our patients understand the value of their dental treatment and to help make them comfortable with the cost of treatment by offering them different payment and financing options. Our team does everything necessary to make each step the smoothest, from appointment reservations to the final smile. We’ll walk with you through it all.
At work, I’m just Tori. At home, I’m a mom, a wife, and sometimes a superhero, I let my kids decide which is when. My high school sweetheart became my husband in 2014 and pretty soon…our kids will outnumber us! At the office, we are more than co-workers, we are friends. We joke, we laugh, and we progress together. Since I joined the team in November 2014, it truly has been a home away from home and I couldn’t be more thankful.
Iliana RodriguezDental Assistant
I have been one of the Dental Assistants at Oak Brook Smiles since the fall of 2012. I graduated from Illinois School of Health Careers as a Dental Assistant and have been in the dental field for about three years now. I chose to become a dental assistant because I love to help people feel good about themselves and be confident with their smile! I always try to make patients feel comfortable and make them feel at home when they come to our office.
Oak Brook Smiles is a great office! I also enjoy working with our staff members here at Oak Brook Smiles. They are awesome! We provide our patients with the most advanced technology in the dental field and we always strive to do our best to exceed our patients’ expectations. Our main goal is to try to make our patients happy about their smile!
I was born and raised in Cicero, IL. I married my wonderful husband, Carlos, on September 14, 2013. Our little one, Gael, will turn 1 on October ’17. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and going shopping. Trying new restaurants and watching Gael grow are some of our favorite things to do!
Anel CardenasDental Assistant
Working at Oak Brook Smiles has been like a breath of fresh air since I first walked in the door in Aug ’16. I graduated from College of Dupage as a Dental Assistant in 2012 and have been in the dental field for four years now.
Here at Oak Brook Smiles, you can either find me assisting in one of the treatment rooms or helping out at the front desk answering any questions patients may have. My goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible during your entire dental process. I always enjoy seeing the final product and the smile on patients’ faces. Being the newbie in the office, everyone welcomed me with open arms and that’s what I feel we do with our patients. You really feel like you’re around family and there’s nothing more you could ask for. I hope you all experience this when you visit us.
I was raised in the Western suburbs of Chicago, where I still reside today. In my spare time I enjoy going out to dinner with friends, working out, and spending time with my niece and nephew who I adore so much.
