Dr. Cheska Avery

Dr. Avery isn't like most dentists. She takes a unique approach to dentistry by focusing on each patient individually. Listening to her patients, getting to know them personally and teaching them everything they need to know about their oral health care are the main reasons her patients love to visit. Dr. Avery is dedicated to putting her patients first.

After graduating from DePaul, she remained in Chicago and worked as a social worker for six years before pursuing her career in dentistry. Dr. Avery earned her DDS from Marquette University School of Dentistry and has been practicing for over 10 years. Her experience in social work gave her the opportunity to learn how to work with individuals during difficult times and make dentistry a positive and comfortable experience for her patients. She believes in a comprehensive approach towards dentistry and educating patients to recognize the significance of maintaining good oral health.

Dr. Avery enjoys being active in the profession and is a member of several professional and community organizations. She has served on the Board of Directors for the Greater Milwaukee Dental Association and was recently elected President Elect for 2015-2016.

Isabel M.

Dental Hygienist

Always interested in dentistry, I first realized the joy of helping others through the dental profession 10 years ago, starting as a dental receptionist and assistant. My motivation to help people by providing quality care and creating beautiful, healthy smiles led me to further my education to become a dental hygienist. A graduate of the Dental Hygiene program at College of Lake County, I'm enthusiastic about educating my patients and helping them improve their oral and overall health. I find that the most rewarding part of being a dental hygienist is seeing positive results and improvement in my patient's health. I enjoy being part of the caring team at Avery Family Dentistry and working with a team that strives to provide a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience to fit each individual's needs, while still providing the highest standards of patient care and treatment.

When not caring for my patients, I enjoy traveling and spending quality time with my family.

Miriam B.

Dental Assistant

I have been a member of the Avery Family Dentistry team since August of 2014. I have worked as a Dental Assistant for over three years and realized during this time that I have a great passion for the profession. I have decided to continue my education part time and plan to pursue a career as a dental hygienist. I love meeting the patients at Avery Family Dentistry and hope that my friendly and positive attitude puts them at ease.

In my free time, I like to stay active by working out at the gym and going for runs. I enjoy cooking, dancing, as well as spending time with my family.

We also teach the importance of at-home preventive care so you can maintain lasting oral health for years to come.
