Meet Our Team
Elmhurst office manager and financial manager
I’ve been with Dr. Corina Radu since January 2006 and love my job! I am certified by the scheduling institute and as a Sure Smile Clinician. My favorite thing about orthodontics is the close bond we make with our patients, since we see them every month. I love the playful but professional work atmosphere and relationships we have with our patients and parents. The thing I like best about working with Dr. Radu is her work ethic and understanding.
I was born and raised on the north side of Chicago, GO SOX! I come from an enormous family of over twenty aunts and uncles and 100 cousins! In my free time I love writing poetry and like to watch movies and criticize them. I am also vice president of the Justina Memorial Foundation, which assists families of alcohol related accidents.
Fun Fact : I have had one of my poems published in a book!
Head Clinical Coordinator
I’ve been an orthodontic assistant since 2002. I have worked for Dr. Radu since 2005. I’m certified in coronal polishing, lingual braces and Sure Smile. There are many reasons why I have the best job in the world. I love getting to know all of our patients and seeing how incredibly happy they are when their braces come off and see the fantastic results that we helped them achieve! I love that new technology is always coming out and keeps us on our toes. I’m always up for a challenge and learning new things.
I live in Tinley Park and am married with 3 amazing kids! 2 boys (my eldest is currently in braces and doing Sure Smile) and was recently blessed with my princess! I enjoy taking my kids for walks. I like bowling, reading, baking, watching T.V. and looking for fabulous purses!
Fun Fact: I really like the show Survivor and am in a Survivor Pool every season!!
Hi, my name is Mia Nguyen. I’m a student at Downers Grove North High School and currently a helper in training at Dr. Radu’s orthodontist practice. I’ve been working with Dr. Radu since summer of 2014. I love the warm atmosphere and the welcome feelings when coming to work because Dr. Radu and her assistants always have a big smile.
I was a former patient of Dr. Radu and my brother is currently in treatment. We both trust doctor with her many years of experience and knowledge to help us achieve a beautiful smile. While in treatment we feel very comfortable in doctor’s hands because she treats us like we’re her own kids.
In my free time I like to draw, riding my bike, and watching mystery TV shows.
