Ultimately she became Assistance to the President of the corporate headquarters of Adventist Midwest Health (AMH). Now she has come full circle to move back into the field of dentistry.

Meet Kimberly Crouch

After graduation, Kim and her husband moved to Ann Arbor, MI for several years and relocated again to Illinois in 2008. Kim is a proud mother to her daughters. She enjoys her job as a dental hygienist and strives to make patients not only educated, but comfortable and happy as well.

Meet Diana

Diana Stan,
Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

Our experiences shape who we are and ultimately help us decides our path. My decision to pursue dentistry was based on a series of important events from my childhood, starting when my mom took me to a very nice pediatric dentist. The skill, care and kindness shown by the doctor have stayed with me all these years, and have inspired my goal of becoming a similarly skilled and caring professional.

When I got my green card through the Visa lottery it was a happy day. I came into the United States and I decided I want to continue what I started in Romania. Working as a dental assistant in the Chicago area, I have been able to meet many talented alumni of Harper College. In the same time, I found out about a different profession: dental hygiene. Before coming here, I didn’t know about it. I have learned a lot from my colleagues during the years I have worked with them. At that moment, I chose to do dental hygiene instead of dentistry. I consider dental hygiene a versatile career that gives me professional satisfaction and time for my family. The knowledge I accumulated in Romania has greatly reinforced my American experience.

Other than my profession, I am married and my husband is a software engineer. We have two children, a boy and a girl. We love to travel and so far have seen just a small part of United States since coming here. Also, I like to take long walks and read fashion magazines.

Meet Kristina

Kristina Moravecek,
Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

Kristina knew she wanted to be in the field of dentistry since she was a little girl. Her mother was a dental assistant and Kristina would LOVE visiting her mom at work. Being raised around teeth and loving her own teeth being cleaned, Kristina went right into Dental Hygiene school from high school. She attended Parkland College in Champaign where she earned her Associates degree. She is local anesthetic certified as well as nitrous oxide and diode laser gum tissue therapy. Kristina loves to interact with her patients and likes to make sure they are comfortable while having a thorough teeth cleaning. Kristina is very caring and enjoys educating her patients about oral hygiene.

Outside of work, Kristina loves playing with her nephew; he’s quite the charmer! She and her boyfriend enjoy traveling, being outdoors, and running races. They usually run a local race together once a month! When they are not running, they are either watching a Disney movie, buying something Disney related, or booking their next trip to ....well... you guessed it, Disney.
