Screen Shot 2015-01-06 at 1.11.00 PMHi, 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.
