Meet the Staff

Laurie Lawrence

Treatment Coordinator

Laurie has been in the dental field for twenty-eight years. She graduated from DAVEA (now DuPage Technical Institute) with a degree in Dental Assisting. Her work at Dr. Yuan's office began in 1994 with Dr. Binkley. Laurie continued to work with Dr. Yuan since his practice opened in 2005. Getting to know patients and their families is one of the many reasons that Laurie enjoys working in the dental field so much!

Laurie and her family have lived in the Bloomingdale area for 25 years. When not in the office, Laurie enjoys volunteering at her church and spending time with family.

Nancy Ruzecki

Dental Assistant

Nancy has over 30 years of experience in a management position and as a chairside dental assistant. She is committed to providing high-quality care for patients, continuing her education in order to ensure that she stays current with the latest dental techniques. The part that she likes most about dental assisting is being part of the patients' lives and sharing her experience.

Nancy enjoys spending her free time with her two children and five grandchildren. On a typical weekend, she can be found wave-running in Wisconsin and being with her family. She loves animals, especially cocker spaniels!

Kelly Harvey

Dental Hygienist

Kelly grew up in Bloomingdale and attended Lake Park High School. She graduated from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in 2004. Since completing college, Kelly has been working as a dental hygienist at Aesthetic Dental LLC. Her favorite part about working at the office is interacting with the patients—Kelly sees them every six months, so it's like catching up with old friends!

Currently, Kelly resides in Elgin. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their Shih Tzu, Yin Yang. Some of Kelly's hobbies include wine tasting, traveling and acting as a food critic at restaurants.
