Audrey enjoys working as one of our front desk coordinators, which gives her the opportunity to meet and interact with our patients, making them feel comfortable and providing a pleasant experience at every visit. She loves being part of a fantastic team with a great leader, who keeps us involved and updated on technology, which benefits our patients' care and comfort. Over the years, our office has experienced many exciting and innovative changes, with more to come.
Tracy is our other front desk coordinator, and was born and raised here in Western Springs. She enjoys staying home and raising her children, Joshua, Nathaniel and William in this wonderful town. Prior to being a full time mother, Tracy spent five years working in Marketing and Advertising for Ace Hardware Corporation. Prior to that she worked in a doctor’s office for five years.
When not shuffling between the boys sporting events, she loves to spend time relaxing in Long Beach Indiana with family, friends and their golden-doodle, Sampson.
Karen is our dental hygienist. She grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago, and still resides there. Before earning her degree from Prairie State College, she was a dental assistant and has been in the dental field for over 20 years. She specializes in the treatment of periodontal disease and patient education. Continuing education seminars and research help further her own knowledge. Karen truly loves what she does and gives the utmost care to her patients. She is proud to be part of the Pendleton team and strives to be the best hygienist she can be.
In her spare time, Karen enjoys boating, camping and the city. She spends lots of time with her longtime love Norb and pet parrot, Murphy.
Cheryl has been assisting Dr. Pendleton for over ten years. One of the highlights of her position is being involved in smile makeovers, and seeing how excited patients are when the case is completed. Oftentimes, these are patients that have been afraid to smile for years, and seeing the end result puts a smile on our face as well!
In her spare time, Cheryl spends time with her children Stephanie and Evan. A dog lover, her "third child" Oliver keeps her busy, along with any other dogs that cross her path!
