Meet The Team
I’ve been a dental hygienist for 18 years and I have been with MG Dentistry for five years. MG Dentistry gives me the opportunity to practice my passion and to help my patients in achieving their best smile. Not only do I enjoy helping others be healthy but I also practice and teach yoga for my own personal health. For me, yoga is inspiring, calming and reflective spiritually, mentally, and physically. It challenges me to be the best “Mel” I can be.
I was born and raised in West Virginia but have been a Chicagoan since 1999. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene from West Virginia University and have been in the dental field for 16 years.
Outside of work I am an avid Cubs and Mountaineer fan. I enjoy practicing yoga, traveling, and spending time with my bulldogs.
I am the newest addition to the MG Dentistry team. I take pride in providing detailed and thorough care to my patients.
Hi, I’m Gloria and very excited to join the team of MG Dentistry. I have been a hygienist for over 25 years. For the last 10 years, I have had the privilege of working as the clinical assistant and physician liaison for Dr. Allen Moses- renowned dental sleep medicine and TMD specialist. Dr. Kalliath joined our practice and learned Dr. Moses’ treatment philosophies and methods, and we both come to MG Dentistry ready to continue helping patient who suffer from sleep apnea, snoring and temporomandibular joint dysfunction. I am grateful to Dr. Gracias for this excellent opportunity.
I’m Sara and I am the sterilization technician at MG Dentistry. I am in charge of keeping the instruments in every single room spotless and organized. I enjoy the inspiration I get to reach levels of excellence. When I’m not here at the office working, I love cooking and enjoy sharing my crazy with the ladies here at work.
Patient Care Coordinator
I am excited to be a part of the MG Dentistry team. I bring with me 10 years of experience in the dental field as a patient care coordinator and insurance specialist. I am a native of Chicago and a big Chicago Cubs fan. I look forward to meeting all of the new and existing patients and providing excellent care.
I am one of our two wonderful medical estheticians. I have worked at MG Rejuvenation Center for five years and have been a licensed esthetician for 12 years. I enjoy working out so that I can eat Potbelly’s sugar cookies! I truly love my job and my amazing clients.
I’m Andrea and I am a medical esthetician with 10 years of hands-on experience using several laser procedures, IPL/Photofacial, RF/U & ultrasound/infrared skin tightening, & ablative/non-ablative/non-fractionalized laser skin resurfacing. By day I correct unwanted skin issues and beautify and by night I am a full time singer for various blues and cover bands throughout the Midwest.
My name is Rena. I am pretty laid back and when I am not cleaning teeth, I enjoy spending my free time hanging out with my family and friends. I love to write poetry too.
My name is Angelina, and I am happy to serve our patients at MG Dentistry with a smile! Being well rounded in all aspects of dentistry, I hope to make your visit at our practice seamless. Outside of the office, I’m always looking to brush up on my equine knowledge (and pass it on to my daughter).
I recently moved to Chicago 3 years ago from Laguna Beach, CA. As much as I miss the West Coast, Chicago is amazing and I am absolutely in love with this city. I started my journey with MG Dentistry in February of 2018 as their concierge. The fact that I am privileged enough to get up every day, knowing I am apart of helping create beautiful smiles that ultimately will change the lives of our patients is only one of many reasons I love what I do in this world.
When I am not at MG Dentistry, I am all about relaxation whether it be strumming to my guitar, creating music or just out with my family and friends at one of the many amazing places Chicago has to offer
Patient Care Coordinator
I’m Yvette and I’m so excited to be a part of the MG Dentistry family. With over 11 years of dental administration experience, I strive to make our patients feel as comfortable as possible. It is my goal to ensure that every patient walks out feeling better about their dental health than they did before they walked in. I believe in staying positive and spreading joy to others. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy traveling and spending time with family and close friends.
