Getting to Know Yessika
Yessika, Dental Assistant
Where did you grow up? Go to school?
I grew up in Palatine, Illinois, about 30 minutes away from Wheaton and went to Palatine High School.
How and when did you get your start at West Willow Family Dental?
I joined the West Willow family a little more than a month ago!
What made you want to work here?
For the last year and a half, I was working as a temporary assistant. While that was great, I was ready to get a permanent, full-time job. This has been a great move for me!
What do you do for West Willow on a day-to-day basis?
I use my 12 years of experience in the dental industry to provide our patients with the best quality dental care.
What do you think West Willow offers patients that other dental offices don’t?
We love new technology here. West Willow Dental provides high-tech material and modern technology for our patients to make sure they are getting the best treatment possible. Dr. Ray is always taking time to explain to patients what they need to be doing to improve their oral health.
What are your hobbies when you aren’t working?
I really love to play soccer and enjoy spending time with my four kids!
Who are the members of your immediate family?
Well, I have three daughters, Yulissa, Yetzemany and Yaletzi and one son, Reyman. I love them all very much.
What are your favorite movies? Music? Food? Vacation spots?
My favorite movies are Titantic and Walk in the Clouds. I really enjoy any kind of music and all different kinds of food. My favorite vacation spot? I’ll take anywhere that has a beach, honestly.
What is a fun fact most people don’t know about you?
People always seem to think I’m shy and quiet… but that honestly could not be farther from the truth! It’s totally the opposite.
How do you try to treat patients who come into West Willow Family Dental?
I always try to make them feel as comfortable as possible. My goal is to make patients feel like they aren’t inside of a dental office when they’re at West Willow. Not only are their dental needs my priority, but I want to make sure they feel good about being here.
