There, she joined the International Dentists Program at the University of Illinois College of Dentistry, and completed her Doctorate of Dental Surgery.
Dr. Kanani’s passion for oral health and overall general health stems from growing up surrounded by healthcare professionals. Both her parents and older brother are doctors and her younger brother is also a dentist. Dealing with diverse people every day offers a unique challenge, and Dr. Kanani is excited to meet those challenges and expectations. She finds it highly rewarding to change someone’s life with the care she provides.

As the Practice Administrator, I am responsible for practice growth, operating procedures and team member development. My number one priority is ensuring that our team exceeds patient expectations while providing dental care and customer service. I’m dedicated to having a dental practice with a reputation for great service, phenomenal care, and exceptional dentistry. I am confident that you will feel very welcomed when you visit our office. I am also very hands-on. You won’t find me hiding in an office. I am here to support each team member in fulfilling our mission to help others and improve our patients overall health and quality of life.
My experiences have allowed me to work with a number of doctors and teams over the years. I was recruited by Doctor Kanani in January, 2016; to partner with her in achieving her visions for Aurora Bright Dental. I highly respect Doctor Kanani’s passion for dentistry, her commitment to learning, and devotion to patients. She has a truly unique character. She genuinely loves what she does, her patients, and her team. We’ve created a culture that supports every individual, values their contributions, allows people to succeed, and a sense of family in our practice.
I’m originally from the East Coast. I grew up in South East Virginia. After spending some time in Minnesota and Pennsylvania, I came to Illinois in 1999. Where my father retired back to his home of Chicago; from serving our country in the Navy.
My family all reside here in Illinois, so this is home for me. I loved what Virginia offered. I had access to the ocean, the mountains, the forests and Washington D.C. I really appreciate the outdoors, and being surrounded by nature. I enjoy hiking, camping, and being on my motorcycle. If the weather is right, you’ll certainly find me riding.
I graduated in Virginia and began my dental career in 1993. I started as a Clinical Assistant and have performed various roles throughout my career. I’ve also held positions in retail and property management. I’ve always been most passionate about dentistry. Throughout my dental career, I’ve continued to expand my knowledge and education in dental practice management, operating procedures, and team dynamics. I am driven by advocating the importance of maintaining ideal oral health, developing an exceptional dental team, and facilitating superior dental care.
It is my sincerest pleasure to serve our patient family. At Aurora Bright Dental, you couldn’t be in better hands!

I enjoy spending time with family! Helping the community and people in need is something we participate in every year. We do clothing, food and toy drives. After gathering these items we personally deliver them to people in Mexico. I enjoy do-it-yourself projects and baking. I’m a hardcore baseball fanatic and I enjoy traveling.
I graduated from Kishwaukee Community College with a teaching degree. I became a dental assistant in 2011 and I joined the Aurora Bright Dental family in 2018. I love working with Doctor Kanani and the rest of our team. In my experience, I feel our dental family prioritizes patients more so than some dental practices. We really strive to exceed our patients expectations and meet their needs. I believe what makes our practice exceptional, is the environment. We’re a team that works as a family!
The part I mostly enjoy about my career is being able to provide a service for the community. Making our patients feel comfortable and having them leave with a smile on their face.
I can’t wait to meet you!
