Meet the Team

Kathleen Gusloff, Office Manager

kathleen-koppI have been working for Dr. Kopp since January, 2000. As the Office Manager I make every effort to ensure that our team provides you with the best dental care in Elmhurst. Our philosophy is, “The Patient Is Our Primary Concern” and we at Kopp Dental work together every day to make sure this holds true. I am committed to helping all of our patients feel comfortable and taken care of.

I am very proud of our team providing wonderful dental care for Elmhurst. I know that you will be very satisfied with the comforts and technology we will provide. If you ever have a concern or question, please know that I am here to help you. Our team is truly the best! Coming to work every day is like being with family!

I am happily married, have four children and eight grandchildren. I am very proud of my family. I am blessed to have such a wonderful husband, fantastic children, loving extended family and supportive friends. One of my greatest joys is spending time with all of them.

Along with my work at Dr. Kopp & Associates, I am a motivational speaker and currently serve on the dental committee with Elmhurst Walk in Assistance Network. It is a true joy to be able to serve in our community.

The person in my life who I admire is Mother Theresa. She is someone who was strong in her convictions and it really mattered to her that she made a difference in the world.


 

Donna Glick, Insurance & Implant Manager

kopp-teamAs a courtesy to our patients we will file all primary insurance. We will work together to ensure that you get the maximum benefit for work completed. Please understand that your policy is an agreement between you and your employer and most often you will get better results speaking with your insurance carrier. I will do my best to help you in any way we can.

For optimal dental implants care, it is imperative for the prosthodontist, the surgeon and the patient to be in communication for every step of the process. As implant coordinator, I will do my best to guide you throughout your entire implant treatment. Feel free to call me with any concerns or questions.

I have been working with Dr. Kopp since May 2000. Not only has working here been a great learning experience it has also been great fun working with this staff.
My husband and I have three grown children who we are very proud of. We currently have 2 granddaughters and look forward to more. Spending time with my family is one of my favorite things to do.
