Hi! My name is Hilary, I am the Dental Hygienist here at The Oaks Dental Center. I joined the team in late 2010. I recently moved to Illinois from a small town in southwest Wisconsin. I attended the University of Wisconsin, Platteville for 2 years and later transferred to Madison where I completed my hygiene degree at Madison College.
Out of the office I enjoy traveling and doing outdoor activities. I am looking forward to working with people in the community, building relationships and educating and inspiring patients to embrace proper dental hygiene. I am happy to have found an office where I can share my philosophy in dentistry. Here, at The Oaks our actions match our promises, which allows us to provide the highest level of clinical care to our patients.
I am Monica. I'm the newest member of the team. I joined the practice in 2018. I have been practicing dental hygiene for over 30 years in a variety of settings. I enjoy getting to know people and making them feel welcome.
