As a father-son family practice Skale Dental Professionals pride themselves on long-lasting professional relationships and continuing family involvement. Our office manager, Maria, has been with the office for over 25 years. Our Registered Dental Hygienist, Mollie, is a new addition and daughter of Dr. Darryl Skale and sister to Dr. Ryan Skale.
Office Manager, Financial and Patient Relations Coordinator, Cosmetic Dentistry Supervisor
Maria has been working with Dr. Skale since January of 1990. Maria has been as much the face of the practice as the Doctors for over 25 years. Maria loves working with our patients, can talk to anyone, is bilingual, and always has a good story to share. From assisting, to recalls, supply ordering, maintenance of all dental equipment– she is nothing short of excellence and is an invaluable member of Skale Dental. Maria’s primary responsibility is to oversee the practice and ensure that all aspects run smoothly. Her and her husband Jeff have been married 25 years and have two children, Tere and Ryan. Tere is a student at Northern Illinois University and Ryan, “Bucky,” attends Mundelein High School and is a thriving youth lacrosse player and actor.
Registered Dental Hygienist
Mollie is Dr. Darryl Skale’s oldest daughter and Dr. Ryan Skale’s younger sister. She graduated from the University of Iowa with a Bachelors degree in Science and recently obtained her Dental hygiene degree from the College of Lake County, graduating as the Valedictorian of her class. Mollie has been such a welcome addition to Skale Dental and has been overwhelmingly well-received by all patients. As the office’s first dental hygienist, she has added a new element to the office, offering a fresh look at oral health. Having her is well overdue as her presence, personality and the quality of care she provides to the patients has been excellent. Mollie’s great energy and positive spirit gives the patients a sense of comfort and ease while in her dental chair. She offers the same great quality of care and personal attention to each patient that are provided by her father and brother.
Talia came to the office wise beyond her years. She has been trained in dental practice and it is evident. Talia is Dr. Skale’s primary clinical assistant but has recently taken on a greater role with our front desk and administrative team, particularly on the insurance side. She can do it all with her strength being her commitment and work ethic.
Megan is Dr. Ryan Skale’s main assistant and her possibilities extend to Dr. Ryan’s passion for treatment of Sleep Apnea and TMJ Disorders. She is responsible for all record taking and communication in addition to assisting during all of Dr. Ryan Skale’s procedures.
Jocelyn joined the Skale Dental family in 2016 as a part time assistant. Her role within the office expanded quickly as did our need for her great teamwork. She now is a integral part of our team, providing help with just about everything in the office. She has gained immense clinical skill in a short time through the experience working with our great doctors and trained staff.
We are very thankful for our incredible team at Skale Dental Professionals.
We really enjoy working together and we hope it shows through positivity and good energy when you visit the office.
