Meet the Team

Karina

Office Manager

I have been working at Armitage Oral Surgery since October 2014 coordinating our patient schedule and treatment plans. I was promoted to Office Manager in 2017 and look forward to the challenges as we shape new programs in our office! I love to entertain and explore the new restaurants in the Chicago area. Ask me for a recommendation! I also have 2 dogs that keep me on my toes!

Nancy

Patient Administrative Treatment Coordinator

After being a big part of opening our doors at Armitage Oral Surgery almost 10 years ago, we are happy (yet sad) to announce that Nancy has retired to spend lots of time gardening and traveling. We wish her the best……(but Nancy, you are welcome back anytime!) UPDATE! She’s back! We knew she couldn’t stay away long! Nancy has returned to Armitage Oral Surgery to work with our patients to coordinate their insurance and treatment. Welcome back!

Alex

Administrative Coordinator

I joined the Armitage Oral Surgery team in May of 2017! Patricia and I are the first smiles you will see when you walk in the door! When I am not at the office greeting and coordinating our surgical patients I like to work out, watch romantic comedies, spend time with friends and family, try new places around the city and enjoy the incredible culinary delights Chicago has to offer. Ask me about some of my favorites!

Patricia

Administrative Coordinator

I joined Armitage Oral Surgery in June of 2017. Alex and I are the official greeting team at Armitage Oral Surgery! Outside of the office I love to read anything fiction, philosophy, or sociology. I also like to entertain my two cats, Panther and Jewel. When I travel, I love to stop at random coffee shops and check out different brews!

Sheila

Director of Education

I have worked in the dental industry for over a decade!  I worked for the dental implant companies for most of my dental career specializing in dental implants and biologics.  I now work exclusively for Armitage Oral Surgery educating our dentist partners and our patients about dental implants.  I am so passionate about what we do because I was once an oral surgery patient!  In 1992 I had my jaw reconstructed by an oral surgeon and it changed my life!  Outside of the dental world that I am so passionate about I am also an entrepreneur, an adventurer and I love little critters.  I know more about guinea pigs than you could ever imagine one person knowing!

Anais

I joined Armitage Oral Surgery in May 2016.  My educational background is in the sciences and I love the unique biologics that we use in surgery such as PRF.  How the human body works is fascinating!  I love to cook and I am well known for my Tiramisu.  I also love to read.  My favorite book is Atlas Shrugged……create your best self first and everything else will fall into place!

I have been in the dental world for 11 years, 8 of those years I have specialized in the dental surgery field. I have been at Armitage Oral Surgery since February 2017! I was born in Essex, UK!

Besides traveling I also love cats, riding horses and opera.
