Meet Our Staff

Our team is a collection of many gifted individuals. Together, their varied skill sets empower us to plan, develop, and execute exceptional orthodontic treatment in a pleasant environment. The one characteristic that everyone must have is that they care for others! This is why so many have worked in our office for so long. We interact at a very personal level, and as a result patients share themselves with us!

To experience the difference that only a well-trained, professional, and courteous team can deliver, schedule your appointment with our office today!

Front Office Staff

Julie – Administrative Assistant

I’ve been a part of this team since 1988, and I can’t imagine working anywhere else! My doctors and coworkers are like family.

I have a lot of respect for my fellow staff members, and I feel privileged to work with such a dedicated, knowledgeable, and professional group of people.

My free time is spent looking after my daughter and son, and a house full of pets. I do love to read when I get the chance, though!

“Julie is one of the most together people I know. She wears lots of hats and is gracious as a part-time employee to work at multiple positions. Julie is skilled at facilitating situations with a friendly smile. She has two inquisitive children and often has to field questions that her kids already know the answer to, just to make her scramble. We are glad for the time she gives us away from her family.” — Dr. Klepacki


Laura – Front Desk Receptionist

What I love most about orthodontics is building wonderful relationships with my patients and my co-workers. I love seeing all of the happy smiles that surround me each day.

Our doctors are so passionate about what they do, and they really make everyone feel like family.

I’ve been married to my husband Troy for 14 years. We have a beautiful daughter, Lilyan, and we rescued our dog Sandy in February 2014. We love our family time together, especially going biking, taking long walks, and watching movies.

“Hired virtually on Christmas day in 2000, Laura was one of the best gifts I have received. She is always smiling and very aware of what our patients and parents’ needs are and strives to meet them. Laura is a great coworker and is always on her toes. She is mother to her way to clever daughter Lily and husband Troy.” — Dr. Klepacki


Linda K. – Business Manager

I help make sure our office stays on track and efficient so our doctors can concentrate on what’s really important: our patients! I know first-hand how much of a difference an aesthetic transformation can make in a person’s confidence.

I’m proud to be a part of changing people’s lives every day. I am a proud wife, mom, and nana who enjoys sharing my gifts of cooking, gardening, and my love of animals, especially horses.
 

“I wish I was one of her three grandchildren. Not because they are spoiled with things but because they are loved like crazy. We are fortunate that Linda brings that level of concern for others to our team. Linda’s role managing office finances is performed with that same level of care and dedication!” — Dr. Klepacki


Maria – Administrative Assistant

I love seeing the joy in our patients’ faces after their treatment is complete!

Watching Dr. Mike interact on such a personal level with all of our patients is a lot of fun, too. He’s a fantastic orthodontist, and the smiles he creates are truly one of a kind! I have been joyfully married for the past 25 years to my husband Paul. We have three lovely daughters — Arianna, Alexandria, and Olivia — all of whom have completed our lives with joy and adventure. Our newest addition is Bailee Joy, our dog!

“Maria, like others in our office, is very good at many jobs that help make our front office very efficient. But her most important role is her ability to tell me like it is; what has to get done and when. She manages to do that with just enough of a smile so I want to do it but serious enough so that I know I have to do it! Maria is a great mom and is no stranger to every sport three girls could possibly be involved in! In addition to her three daughters, Maria’s biggest treasure is her husband Paul.” — Dr. Klepacki


Monica – Front Desk Receptionist

Talking to our patients and their parents is my favorite thing about orthodontics. I enjoy getting to see our patients’ progress throughout their treatment, and watching as their smiles evolve with confidence.

I also love coming to work each and every day to such a family-focused environment. I have been married for 11 years to my wonderful husband Mark. We have an awesome daughter, Molly, and a German shepherd named Ella that rounds out our family. I enjoy spending time with all of my family and friends, and am an avid Chicago Bears and Blackhawks fan.

“Monica is the newest member to our team, starting  two years ago.  She is someone I feel like I have known my whole life. Monica knows what needs to be done and loves to do it. She is also one of the energetic voices you will hear when calling the office. Her husband Mark is a fireman’s fireman, but she’s even more prepared than he is. They have a beautiful daughter Molly.” — Dr. Klepacki


Tracy – Treatment Coordinator

I meet with all our new patients to discuss their treatment and give them a greater understanding about how their smile can be improved to last a lifetime.

For many people, orthodontics can be intimidating, but when you come to Klepacki Orthodontics, our team will take care of you and do everything we can to make your experience as comfortable and fun as possible.

 

“Tracy has worked virtually every position in our office except in the business office. She excels at being our treatment coordinator: the person responsible for everyone’s first visit to our office. Tracy gets very excited for patients ready to start treatment because she has a very good idea of how great the patient’s smile is going to look when we are done.” — Dr. Klepacki


 

Clinical Staff

 

Chris – Assistant

I’ve been a part of this office for a long time! The past 26 years have been so fulfilling, as I’ve seen so many people’s lives transformed because of the work we do. We all work together toward the same goal: creating healthy, beautiful smiles.

I’ve been married to my husband Mark for 22 years. We have two beautiful daughters, Brittany who is 20 and Ashley who is 18. We have a dog, Lady, and a cat, Kitty. I enjoy baking, crocheting prayer blankets and lap blankets for church members and the local community, riding ATVs, and camping.

“Chris is a systems person and is very precise in her clinical work. Her ability to analyze procedures and develop protocols for consistent procedures is her hallmark. Chris follows this pattern in her own kitchen and is a world-class baker! She is also reminded of the great work she does every time she sees her two beautiful daughters.”


David – Assistant

My job is really exciting, especially when I get to meet so many new people. All of the doctors and office staff are extremely fun to be around. I feel like I am spending time with friends when I am in the office! Our doctors have been such an inspiration to me.

I just started dental school, so assisting the doctors and maintaining the clinic for the past few years has been great experience. In my free time, I love doing any type of outdoor activity; all sports, hiking, rock climbing, wakeboarding, skiing, etc.
 

“David has worked in our office for the past three years and is preparing to start dental school this August. David recently graduated with a biomedical engineering degree. He is smart, artistic, inquisitive, and always a gentleman.” — Dr. Klepacki


Holly – Assistant

While I like getting to know all our patients, I especially love meeting all the kids. My team and I work together like clockwork. We know each other’s strengths and are here to support one another. It’s a great atmosphere!

When I’m not at work, I love to be with my family and two dogs. I enjoy the outdoors, especially walking and running with my dogs.

 

“Holly is an orthodontic prodigy, starting in our office as a sophomore in high school. She is organized, precise, and takes personal interest in her patients. It’s so fun to watch her develop such close relationships with everybody.” — Dr. Klepacki


Jessica – Assistant

My favorite part of the job is spending time and interacting with all our patients. It is so rewarding to see the difference in people’s lives after their smiles have changed. I also enjoy working with such knowledgeable doctors and staff who keep me learning every day. It’s great working with the doctors that are so well-known in the community; it says a lot!

I live in Plainfield with my husband Mark, our daughter Aubri, and dog Ram. In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends and family, being outdoors, going for walks, riding my bike, boating, and camping. 

“Jessica is a special gift to our office from the great state of Iowa. Her fun and compassion of growing up in a small town in Iowa is a frequent source of entertainment when compared to the fast-paced demand of Chicago’s suburban kids.” — Dr. Klepacki


Linda N. – Assistant

We love creating smiles here, and I especially like working with our special-needs patients to give them a great smile.

We are a family here at Klepacki Orthodontics, and I feel so fortunate to have been a part of this team for so many years!

I am a mother of two great sons, Chris and Jeff, and a grandmother of three. I also love gardening in my free time.

“I don’t know another person on this earth more suited to manage an anxious patient. She is a wonderful communicator and genuinely concerned to know what your child may be worried about.” — Dr. Klepacki


Quinn – Sterilization Technician

Every day has been a learning experience since I joined the team in 2014! I love how welcoming our doctors have been and how much they’ve taught me. Everyone is so friendly and we all work together very well.

When I’m not at work, I love spending time with friends and family. They’re the ones who can always make me smile!

“Quinn or ‘Q’ is our soul, she emits constant positive energy that is there for everyone to enjoy! Quinn plans on becoming a dental hygienist and continue to work with us clinically.” — Dr. Klepacki


Sherri – Assistant

I love working with kids and seeing their smiles change over time. We have so much fun here! My team and I work well together and are so supportive of one another. It’s nice to look forward to going to work and enjoying what you do!

My husband’s name is Chaz and we have two daughters: Taylor is 13 and Olivia is nine. We also have a pet rabbit named Smokey. I love spending time with my daughters and doing fun things with them.

“Every office needs one; someone who does not know what a bad day is. She routinely breaks into laughter and is a constant reminder to us that it’s really fun to hang out with kids when you don’t have to remind them to do their homework and clean their room!” — Dr. Klepacki


Wendy – X-ray Technician

My favorite part of working here is seeing a patient come in for the first time a little nervous, then by the time they leave they have had fun and realize how easy it was. Our office is a fun place to work; everyone works together knowing that we are creating beautiful smiles!

At home, I have a daughter, Sydney, who is 13 and a dog named Cocoa. I volunteer and coach my daughter’s soccer team and love the Chicago Blackhawks!

“Wendy is my ‘digital best friend.’ She is responsible for taking a lot of our wonderful X-rays, photos, and creating every patient’s digital file. She is amazing at her job and the amount of patience she has shown me as I learn more about computers and phasing technology into our office is miraculous!” — Dr. Klepacki


David K. – Lab Technician

I take great pride in my work. My favorite thing about being a lab tech is working with my hands as I create the appliances that help our patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles.

I’ve worked with our doctors for many years now, and I truly admire their professionalism, generosity, and dedication to patient care. I enjoy spending time with my wife and two daughters. My hobbies include cycling, weight training, motorcycles, and fast street cars!
 

“Dave provides the highest-quality retainers and laboratory appliances in the Midwest. His work is flawless and his lab is spotless. But Dave perhaps more than anyone is keen at recognizing where other people’s hearts are. He is a blessing to me and our entire office.” — Dr. Klepacki


Deann – Lab Technician

The variety of my job makes each day interesting. Whether I’m pouring up models, ordering supplies, or making appliances, there is always something different to do! The best part is knowing how much my work affects others. It is amazing to see from start to finish how we all work together to create the perfect smile.

I enjoy spending time with my family, boyfriend, friends, pets, and working out. When I get the chance, I love going hiking in Arizona.

“Deann works side by side with Dave making all of our retainers. She seems to have elf-like skills in terms of knowing when everything is needed and exactly how it should be made. She can flex to other areas of the office and we are all so glad for that! Deann is eager to help wherever we need her.” — Dr. Klepacki
