Growing up in the Northwest Suburbs, Dr. Mary Haupers attended St. Viator High School before moving on to Marquette University in Milwaukee for college.

Since graduating from dental school in 2009, Dr. Mary has had the privilege of working alongside talented area dentists. Dr. Mary has also attended numerous continuing education seminars, honing her skills and expanding her range of dental procedures to serve you better.

Tara and Dr. Mary have had the pleasure of working side by side for the past 5 years. Dr. Mary can often be heard boasting how Tara is able to anticipate her next move several steps in advance.

Growing up in Schaumburg and attending Harper College for Hygiene school, Debbie is proud to call the Northwest Suburbs her home. She brings invaluable experience to our office having been a practicing hygienist for the past 14 years. Debbie is blessed to have a wonderful husband and three loving children in her life. When not working her busy schedule she enjoys cooking, reading, yoga, concerts, and wine tastings with friends.
Debbie loves the opportunity to connect with patients on multiple levels during their visits and offering individualized support for dental needs. If she had not become a hygienist she would have turned to nursing for a career as she truly enjoys assisting and interacting with others. Her best advice for patients is that oral and general health are deeply intertwined with one another and should not be viewed as separate entities. Debbie possesses all of the values Dr. Mary strives to encompass in our practice and is a perfect fit to the team.
Having had the pleasure of knowing Mayra for many years, we were excited when an opportunity for her to join our team presented itself.
