Erika Nussbaum – CED Dental Assistant

“Forming friendships with our patients” is how Erika views her job. A valued member of our team since 1997, Erika’s warm, friendly manner makes patients feel comfortable in the dental chair. We know having dental treatment can be a scary thing to many people. That’s why Erika’s comfortable, casual, open demeanor is an instant help at relaxing nervous patients.

Erika is a graduate of the Pride Institute, State of Illinois Certified Expanded Duties Dental Assistant, graduate of Invisalign training, and has fueled her love of cosmetic dentistry by training alongside our doctors with Beverly Hills, CA cosmetic dentistry expert Dr. William Dorfman (who has been featured in People Magazine, TV’s Extreme Makeover, and numerous publications).

Erika is a native of Bloomington/Normal. In addition to spending time with her daughter, her favorite activities include cooking and baking. Erika loves to spend time with her extended family. “My nieces and nephews remind me to enjoy life and keep it simple. The innocence of a child and their laughter brings be joy.”
