Meet the Staff

Battistoni and Beam Orthodontics teamAt Battistoni and Beam Orthodontics, we have one of the most experienced staffs you’ll find anywhere in the country. We have staff members who have been with the practice since the very beginning, and our team has tremendous training and experience in all things in the orthodontic world.

But that’s not all – our staff are trained in finance and insurance, so they can help you wade the murky waters of filing claims and seeking reimbursement.

Most importantly, though, we have a team committed to one thing – the patients we proudly serve. Every member of our team is dedicated to helping you achieve your smile goal, while ensuring you have a great office experience and fun along the way.

I am the manager for both the LaGrange and Oak Park locations and have been with Drs. Battistoni and Beam since May 2010. I focus on the business side of the practice and enjoy working with the team members at both offices. My goal is to ensure we have the tools and training in place to help our staff provide the highest level of care available to our patients. I like the challenge of implementing new technology to support patient care, as well as our office operations. Being a part of a team and organization that really believes in providing the best customer service and care for their patients is very rewarding. However, the most rewarding part of the job is seeing a satisfied, smiling patient.

I have been with Drs. Battistoni and Beam since 2006. As the financial coordinator, it is my goal to make orthodontics affordable for all of our patients and their families. I enjoy helping patients utilize their dental benefits and finding the best financial option for everyone. I can relate to our patients and families and what their concerns might be about finances. I love when people leave their visit with me looking completely comfortable and relieved!  Although my job does not require me to work closely with our patients, I still enjoy their energy and love to see their treatment progress. They always leave with a happy smile!

I have been working with this orthodontic practice for 33 years. What I love about my job as an assistant is the evolution of each patient from start to finish. That great big smile at the end of treatment is so worth it. Also, throughout the years, it has been really nice to see past patients that bring their own children into our office for treatment. That is a wonderful compliment!

I’m a front desk coordinator, and enjoy getting to know our patients and their families. We have many adult patients, and I can relate to them because I had braces as an adult as well. The most rewarding aspect of working with Drs. Battistoni and Beam is seeing the excitement in our patients’ eyes when I am making their removal appointments. Nothing compares to their big, beautiful smiles on removal day!

Hi! My name is Karina Reyes. I became a member of the Battistoni and Beam family in August of 2016. I’ve been a chair side orthodontic assistant for more than 10 years. I love to welcome every patient to the office with a smile. I became interested in a career in Orthodontic when I was patient many years ago. It brings me excitement to see patients start treatment with us. We know what they are expecting and I am proud they trust us to transform their smiles.  I choose a career I love, so I feel I never really work I just do something I love every day in my life. My favorite thing to do when I’m not in the office is spend time with my husband and dog. We like to take family trips and enjoy outdoor activities.
