Anna Meltzer, Practice Manager
I joined Dayspring Pediatric Dentistry in December of 2015 and I am excited to have joined such a great team. I bring over 20 years of medical/dental experience in patient care; however this is my first experience in a true pediatric office. Each day brings wonderful new experiences; I especially love seeing our patients who may have initially been scared or nervous, now having excitement to come to their appointments. I recently relocated to the western suburbs and quickly fell in love with the St. Charles area. I am involved in several partnerships around the community, and love spending my free time serving those committees. I also enjoy reading, being active and staying fit, cooking and spending time with my three grown children. I have an open door policy and welcome questions, comments and hearing feedback.
Mary Juris, Office Coordinator
I have been working in the dental field for 34 years in which the last 7 years have been at Dayspring Pediatric Dentistry. It is a true pleasure to have formed relationships with our moms and dads and to see the children grow. I have been married to my wonderful husband Dave for the past 33 years and we have two grown children, David and Cyndi. We also have two more children named Rocco, a not so miniature dachshund, and Bowser a very curious beagle! We enjoy antiquing on the weekends for the never ending search of vintage flashlights and Jadeite serving ware!
