Dr. Erin Macko
Dr. Erin Macko is a compassionate and comprehensive dentist. She is detail oriented and strives to provide the highest level of care for her patients. She was raised and spent most of her life on the East Coast in Delaware. Dr. Macko attended the University of Delaware, where she was a varsity volleyball player and very involved in the campus community. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science. She received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from The Ohio State University and went on to complete a general practice residency at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. While at Northwestern, Dr. Macko gained extensive knowledge in not only general dentistry practices, but expanded her skillset in oral surgery, endodontics (root canals), and implant restorations. She is very comfortable treating those with special needs, including head and neck cancer patients.
As a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, one of her many professional dental affiliations, Dr. Macko studies how we as dental professionals can aid treatment of sleep apnea as well as head and neck pain caused by TMJ disorders. She frequents continuing education courses in all aspects of dentistry to learn the latest research based techniques in order to provide the best care for her patients.
Additionally, Dr. Macko has a strong passion for community service locally as well as abroad. She has made two trips to Central America to provide dental care and hopes to return in the future. Dr. Macko participated in the Chicago community health clinic system and is a volunteer with Special Olympics.
Dr. Macko and Greg, her husband, just had their first child early this summer. Dr. Macko loves Chicago, but she is an avid Philadelphia sports fan and an Ohio State Buckeye for life. She runs 10K and half marathon races often, but nothing beats a morning run along the city’s lakefront path.
Dr. Macko looks forward to meeting you and your family!
Dr. Kristina Djukic
Dr. Kristina Djukic believes that optimal dental care results from good dentist – patient relationship, one which is centered around excellent communication. Her mission is to provide excellent care to her patients, focusing on prevention and encouraging a lifetime of healthy smiles. Dr. Djukic sees dentistry as a unique blend of education, research, medicine, art, and personal relationships. As such, she treats the whole person, not just teeth. She attended the University of Illinois at Chicago where she completed both her Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences and Doctorate in Dental Surgery.
Dr. Djukic is a firm believer in life-long learning and knows that any professional must continue studying, learning and growing, and she is doing exactly that by actively participating in an ongoing continuing education. She maintains memberships with the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), American Dental Association (ADA), Chicago Dental Society (CDS), Illinois Dental Society (ISDS), and Serbian American Medical and Dental Society (SAMDS). Dr. Djukic also serves as an adjunct professor of pre-clinical instruction at Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine.
While dentistry and service are Dr. Djukic’s passions, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling, painting, cooking, and learning about different cultures and languages.
