Meet Our Doctor — North Aurora, IL


Kaitlyn – Patient/Insurance Coordinator

I am the first smiling face that you see when you walk in. In 2016, I graduated from Aurora University with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology & a minor in History. For the past 2 years I have been working in the dental industry & I absolutely love it. Outside of the office, I am very active in my community. Theatre is my passion; from acting, directing & singing, you will always find me on stage. I also enjoy spending time with my family & friends, cooking, reading & karaoke. I’m here to assist you in any way possible, to ensure that you receive the care that you deserve. Let me help you brighten your smile.


Janice – Registered Dental Hygienist

I graduated from Harper College in 1975 & have been in private practice ever since. Through the years I have compiled extensive knowledge in all aspects of general dentistry. Working with my father, whom was a dentist, Dr. Chroust & now Dr. Balderrama, has allowed me to gain unique & ever changing insight into all aspects of patient care. I am passionate about dentistry & continue to grow with the times. I find that this enables me to continually provide our patients with the best dentistry has to offer. Education & promotion of good oral health are my passion. Patient care, individual need, & comfort are my top priorities. I am married to my childhood sweetheart of 41 years, have two grown boys, a daughter-in-law, & 3 year old grandson, whom I adore. In my free time I enjoy gardening, ornithology & sunshine.
