Hi, my name is Dr. Aneta Lacek and I am the owner of Archer Family Dental. I am very happy to be practicing here in the great community of Garfield Ridge. I believe the people of “The Windy” are the most hard working, resilient people in the world. It is an honor to provide dental care to the people of Chicago.

I am a graduate of the University of Illinois-Chicago College of Dentistry, where I was honored to finish in the top 5%. I completed a one-year residency in General Practice Dentistry at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center where I was privileged and challenged to learn more advanced techniques in dentistry. This included providing dental care to medically compromised patients, treating anxious patients with oral sedation, treating dental trauma, and other advanced techniques in restorative dentistry, fixed and removable prosthodontics, endodontics, periodontics and oral surgery.

I have always dreamed of having my own practice one day.  In March of 2014, my wish came true when I took over ownership of the practice from Dr. James Bryniarski.

I understand that for most people dental treatment can be stressful and unpleasant.  Thats why our office is designed to provide a relaxing, comfortable environment where patients can receive the best dental treatments available.  My goal is to make each visit a positive experience. I get the most satisfaction when I hear a patient say, “That was easy! ”, “Were done already!”, or “That was painless!”.

Communication between patient and dentist is critical to a successful relationship. I want to make sure my patients are educated about all procedures, all treatment options are explained, and all their questions have been answered.

I am a member of many professional organizations, continue to invest in the practice to ensure we continuously improve on the patient experience, and I focus on continuing education to strive to provide the highest quality dentistry. I place great importance on providing the highest standard of care for my patients. I am committed to providing family and cosmetic dentistry to all age groups.

I look forward to meeting with you and your family to provide the ultimate dental health and care.



Dr. Aneta Lacek D.D.S.

Hello, and thank you for your interest in Archer Family Dental! I would like to introduce myself as Dr. Samantha Zoltek-Skik, DMD. My calling into the field of dentistry occurred at a young age when I realized that dentistry goes beyond the dreaded tooth ache. I was intrigued by dentistry’s unique ability to provide immediate pain relief, to diagnose systemic conditions that first appear in the mouth, to treat malnutrition with the fabrication of dental prostheses, and to treat patients’ insecurities through the artistic transformation of their smiles.

I had the privilege of obtaining my degree from Midwestern University College of Dentistry in Downers Grove, Illinois, a university continuously evolving its curriculum in order to stay up to date with the rapid technological advancements occurring within all branches of dentistry. This allowed me to learn new and improved techniques and skills to better serve my patients.

One of the greatest things that my clinical experience has taught me is that no two treatment plans can be the same. Each patient comes in with different dental goals and needs that I feel can only be addressed with individualized and personalized treatment plans while maintaining the highest quality of dental care. I look forward to taking the time to sit down with my patients and customize unique treatment plans that will address all of their needs according to their desired approach and pace.

Beyond my education, I am a proud member of various dental organizations including the Chicago Dental Society, the Illinois State Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Women Dentists, and the American Dental Association, all which continue to enhance my dental education.

I am confident that my clinical skills, communication skills, positive attitude, and deep-rooted passion for dentistry will allow me to deliver passionate, comprehensive, esthetic, and reliable dental care to adults and children.

When I am not practicing dentistry, I stay very involved in my Polish Highlander culture which includes traditional Polish dancing, singing, and accordion playing. Additionally, I enjoy practicing my manual dexterity though traditional Polish embroidery and art!

Thank you for allowing me to introduce myself. It is truly a privilege being able to work in Chicago and serve such a diverse population of patients. We can’t wait to meet you!
