Meet The Team
Cari, Patient Care Coordinator
Hi! My name is Cari. I am a Patient Care Coordinator here at Caputo Dental. I have worked for Dr. Caputo since February of 2003. Some of my responsibilities include front desk operations, answering phones, scheduling appointments, conducting financial arrangements, filing insurance claims and many “behind the scenes” tasks. I love what I do here and really enjoy working with a great team!
One of my greatest rewards is building relationships with our guests and helping them to achieve and maintain their personal dental health. It is very satisfying knowing that our guests leave our office with quality dental work.
My husband and I love Chicago, and attend as many Cubs and Bears games we can handle. I love to travel and I strive to visit my family in Florida whenever I have free time. I love the white sand beaches of Siesta Key, and if I’m lucky, you can find me there every 4th of July celebrating with my family.
Carol, Registered Dental Hygienist
My name is Carol. I graduated as a Registered Dental Hygienist with a Bachelor of Science degree from Loyola University in Chicago. Working as a dental hygienist, I take radiographs and provide dental cleanings, oral hygiene instruction, fluoride, and, most importantly, periodontal therapy. During my time on Dr. Caputo’s team, I have become certified in local anesthetic, nitrous oxide administration, and laser application. One of the things I love about our practice is the continuing education process; we have state-of-the-art equipment that provides our patients with the best possible dental care. The DIAGNOdent and VELscope are advancements used daily in our office.
Over the past 11 years, I have built a rapport and friendship with many of our patients; many of whom now look forward to their teeth cleaning. Our team tries to make every patient’s visit to the dentist a painless and pleasurable experience. I am very proud that we educate patients about their dental needs and deliver the excellent dental care they deserve. We are a very professional team that works well together while still managing to have fun.
If you can’t find me in my treatment room on Book Road, I may be traveling with my husband. We enjoy vacationing to warm climates with family and friends. Even though we will soon be “empty nesters” our four children still have a way of keeping us very busy.
I invite you to visit our exceptional office to experience the extensive amount of care and benefits we offer to our patients. Looking forward to seeing you soon.
Donna, Registered Dental Hygienist
Hi! My name is Donna. I am one of the Registered Dental Hygienists that works at Caputo Dental. I have been with the practice since I moved to Naperville in the fall of 2003. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene from Loyola University in Chicago and have been an RDH for almost 25 years. My career history in the dental field has included substituting as a Clinical instructor at Prairie State, attending continuing education courses, and following online study groups and blogs to keep current with the most recent technology. Most recently, our hygiene team completed dental laser certification.
I enjoy guiding patients toward optimal oral health. It has become increasingly evident that the mouth and body are connected. Good oral health improves the health of the whole body, particularly in patients with diabetes and heart disease. I educate patients about nutritional choices, effective plaque removal techniques, fluoride supplementation, and appropriate intervals for periodontal maintenance. It is very satisfying to see someone turn their oral health around with just some small changes.
You may see me around outside the office. I live just down the street in Penncross Knoll and have three sons who are very active in sports and music. When I leave the office, I am usually running to the soccer field, track, or some music program. If you wonder who the lady smiling and waving to you is, it might be me! Besides the boys’ activities, as a family we enjoy traveling, skiing, hiking, music, and spending time with friends and family.
Chris, Registered Dental Hygienist
Hello, my name is Chris. My educational background includes attending Ricks College (now known as BYU-Idaho) and Forest Park College in St. Louis, Missouri. I earned an Associate’s Degree in Applied Science of Dental Hygiene in 1991, and went on to become a licensed Registered Dental Hygienist. My father was a dentist, and I began working in his office at the age of twelve. Quality dental care is what I desire for my patients, enjoying being able to provide contemporary, comprehensive care with a gentle touch. I continue pursue education in my field, always wanting to stay current on the latest technologies and techniques. I like to share the things I learn with you so that you can maintain and improve your dental health. I enjoy working in an office where the team is highly professional and where you will receive the best care possible.
I keep busy with my three girls, one who has left home for college, and I recently remarried. I love family time, exercising, learning about nutrition, going to the movies, volunteering, and doing service work at my church. I look forward to seeing you, and making your smile as healthy as it can be!
Christine, Dental Assistant
My name is Christine. I’ve been in the dental field for ten years and have worked with Caputo Dental for three. I enjoy working here and helping patients achieve and maintain their perfect smile.
I continue to stay abreast of the most current technology by attending continuing education courses, including placing dental sealants and coronal polish for children’s teeth. One of my biggest accomplishments was when I participated in our mission trips to El Salvador to help those less fortunate.
