Abby

Clinic Coordinator

I started working in the field of oral healthcare in 2005 and gladly joined our team in 2010. It has been a great experience working for our office. I love helping people, which is something I can do every day at work. My job is to assist Dr. Hoffman with procedures, and provide excellent care for each patient. My goal is to make everyone happy, and Dr. Hoffman works very hard to make this happen. He has a great approach to each procedure and truly cares about how patients feel.

I live with my husband Eric and two amazing children. In my free time I enjoy working around the house, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.

Office Manager

This office has been my one and only job in dentistry, and I could not have asked for a better place to work. Dr. Hoffman is great with the patients and staff. He is comforting and helps everyone enjoy their time in the office. I love seeing the changes in our patients’ smiles over the course of treatment and the difference it makes to their confidence and self-esteem. Dr. Hoffman and our phenomenal staff make certain that it is always a positive impact. I make sure that the paperwork end of the office runs smoothly, coordinate patient finances and insurance, and do whatever else is needed to manage our office well.

I live in Huntley with my great husband George and daughters, Taylor and Kiersten. I have two more daughters named Kim and Nikki. They are grown and on their own. I enjoy traveling with my family to softball tournaments and watching my grandkids.

Working with Dr. Hoffman has been a wonderful way to start my career in orthodontics. I especially like how he makes patients relax and feel at ease. His commitment to providing quality care is unmistakable. Our team is dedicated to the same thing. The goal is always to make patients happy. I can really support this because I love working with patients and making sure their needs are well taken care of. From one-on-one patient care to doing lab work, I make sure that we provide stellar orthodontic care.

I was born and raised in Woodstock. I love living here with my puggle, Riley. We like going on our walks through the neighborhood. I also enjoy cooking, playing volleyball, and just being outside.

Treatment Coordinator

I joined our team in 2009, and brought more than 15 years of dental experience with me. The one thing that’s remained the same for me is my dedication to our patients’ care. I’m usually the first person they meet when they come here. I introduce patients to our office and help them make informed decisions about their treatment. I answer their questions and concerns and strive to see that our patients feel comfortable and in control of their care. Dr. Hoffman makes this easy, because he really cares about providing quality treatment and patient happiness.

I was born in Charleston, SC, but grew up in Crystal Lake, where I currently live with my incredible husband Scott. I have two sons. The oldest is living his dreams in Nevada and the youngest is a Crystal Lake South graduate furthering his eduation at Augustana where he is playing baseball. I spend most of my free time going to baseball games and being with family and friends.
