Dr. Erin Macko
Dr. Erin Macko is a compassionate and comprehensive dentist. She is detail
oriented and strives to provide the highest level of care for her patients.
She was raised and spent most of her life on the East Coast in Delaware.
Dr. Macko attended the University of Delaware, where she was a varsity
volleyball player and very involved in the campus community. She graduated
with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science. She received her
Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from The Ohio State University and went
on to complete a general practice residency at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
While at Northwestern, Dr. Macko gained extensive knowledge in not only
general dentistry practices, but expanded her skillset in oral surgery,
endodontics (root canals), and implant restorations. She is very comfortable
treating those with special needs, including head and neck cancer patients.
As a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, one of her
many professional dental affiliations, Dr. Macko studies how we as dental
professionals can aid treatment of sleep apnea as well as head and neck

in all aspects of dentistry to learn the latest research based techniques
in order to provide the best care for her patients.
Additionally, Dr. Macko has a strong passion for community service locally
as well as abroad. She has made two trips to Central America to provide
dental care and hopes to return in the future. Dr. Macko participated
in the Chicago community health clinic system and is a volunteer with
Dr. Macko and Greg, her husband, just had their first child early this
summer. Dr. Macko loves Chicago, but she is an avid Philadelphia sports
fan and an Ohio State Buckeye for life. She runs 10K and half marathon
races often, but nothing beats a morning run along the city’s lakefront path.
Dr. Macko looks forward to meeting you and your family!
Dr. Kristina Djukic
Dr. Kristina Djukic believes that optimal dental care results from good
dentist – patient relationship, one which is centered around excellent
communication. Her mission is to provide excellent care to her patients,
focusing on prevention and encouraging a lifetime of healthy smiles. Dr.
Djukic sees dentistry as a unique blend of education, research, medicine,
art, and personal relationships. As such, she treats the whole person,
not just teeth. She attended the University of Illinois at Chicago where
she completed both her Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences and
Doctorate in Dental Surgery.
Dr. Djukic is a firm believer in life-long learning and knows that any
professional must continue studying, learning and growing, and she is
doing exactly that by actively participating in an ongoing continuing
education. She maintains memberships with the Academy of General Dentistry
(AGD), American Dental Association (ADA), Chicago Dental Society (CDS),
Illinois Dental Society (ISDS), and Serbian American Medical and Dental
Society (SAMDS). Dr. Djukic also serves as an adjunct professor of pre-clinical
instruction at Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine.

and learning about different cultures and languages.
