Meet the Staff


Meet Our Friendly Oak Park, IL Dental Office Staff

Dr. Lepkowski leads our team of experienced professionals. We are proud to announce that our staff has over 125 years of experience combined! We all share the belief that your care should be comprehensive, courteous and responsive to your individual needs and preferences.

Our technical team includes three Certified Dental Assistants who are trained and educated in the latest techniques used in dentistry. From oral care instruction to Laser treatments, rest assured you are in good hands.

Our Registered Dental Hygienist, Phyllis, is a caring professional devoted to the prevention of disease and the promotion and improvement of your oral, as well as your overall health. Our Hygienist performs not only your periodic professional cleanings, but also plays an important role in preventing life-threatening diseases such as cancer, diabetes, stroke, and heart attacks.

The Oral Health Report by the US Surgeon General concluded that if left untreated, poor oral health acts as the silent factor promoting the onset of life-threatening diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

Our Patient Care Coordinators greet you when you arrive or phone and make every effort to accommodate your schedule when making appointments. They understand work and family demands and will work with you to fit in an appointment to keep your smile healthy. And, when it comes to insurance benefits and financial arrangements, they are experts. After one visit, you will see that our customer service is second to none.

Phyllis Pizzoferrato, RDH

PhyllisI have been a dental hygienist for thirty-six years, and my passion for dentistry is real. I genuinely care about my patients needs and enjoy finding methods to improve their oral health. I strive to provide exceptional dental care while building confidence, trust and friendship with each patient. Staying current with continuing education courses allows me to deliver the latest techniques and technology.

As a new member of Oak Park Dental Studio, I have truly loved and appreciated the welcoming environment, exceptional staff and friendly patients.

I have a husband, daughter, and two pugs - Brutus and Rocky - that enrich my life everyday. In my free time, I love to travel and cook.

Beatrice, Certified Dental Assistant

beatrice.pngI have been with Oak Park Dental Studio since 2003. I started part-time, never imagining that it would open up a whole new world to me. I love my job as a full-time Dental Assistant here. It's so gratifying to be able to help our patients every day! I'm certified in coronal polishing and the application of sealants. Also, I speak both English and Spanish, so that is helpful for our Spanish speaking patients.

Colleen, Certified Dental Assistant

colleen.pngI've been a dental assistant since 1989, and I just love it. I'm certified in coronal polishing, and the application of sealants. I'm a member of SOKOL and the Illinois State Dental Society. When I'm not working, I'm spending time with my family. I coach my kids t-ball and softball teams, and assistant coach gymnastics. I love to play sports, and play on volleyball and softball teams myself. We love to vacation in Michigan whenever we can.

Mary, Patient Care Coordinator / Certified Dental Assistant

mary.pngMy career in dentistry started in 1978, when I started working with my family dentist. I loved it so much that I went to school to further my dental administration and assistant skills. I still go to school regularly to stay up-to-date on the newest techniques and technologies. I'm certified in coronal polishing. In my free time, I love the outdoors - running, biking, hiking, and most importantly spending time with my animals and my friends!


Diana, Patient Care Coordinator

I have worked in the administrative area of the dental field for nearly twenty years. I bring to this practice a desire and ability to serve with patient accounts, insurance concerns, scheduling, and doctor/patient interactions. I have been married 28 years and have enjoyed raising my two beautiful daughters. I love cooking, crafts, spending  time with my family, and travel.






Lisa, Accounts Specialist

With a background in accounting, I look to maximize your insurance benefits and process your claims quickly. I love working as part of this professional team who takes pride in providing such high quality care to our patients. I have four children, and love to spend time with my kids outdoors and vacationing at the beach every summer.

Sophie & Lucky
