she received her bachelor’s degree with a major in dental hygiene.
After practicing dental hygiene for three years, Dr. Dyoco went back to
Marquette University’s School of Dentistry. During her years in dental
school, she was actively involved in dental research and numerous
service organizations that provided dentistry to those with limited
access to dental care, including mission trips to Central America and
Africa. Dr. Dyoco elected to further her education after dental school
by taking a one-year position at the University of Utah’s general
practice residency, where she practiced general, emergency, and hospital
dentistry. Additionally, she gave dental presentations to various
specialties within the hospital, including plastics and radiation
oncology. Currently, Dr. Dyoco is a member of the American Dental
Association, the Chicago Dental Society, the Illinois State Dental
Society, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
Her experience in so many roles in dentistry and in multiple work
environments has taught her so much about personalizing patient care and
meeting the needs and wants of every patient. “My hope is that each
person who walks in the door will leave with a great big smile on their
face! And not simply because of the quality of dental care provided,
but because they trust that I will do whatever I can to make their
dental experience comfortable.”
In her free time, she enjoys doing yoga, going to see plays and
musicals, getting together with friends and family, and spending quality
time with her son.
