Marilou - Office/Clinical Assistant


Office/Clinical Assistant

I started working for Dr. Kidonakis when I migrated to the United States from the Philippines in 2000. Dr. Kidonakis and Patrick are the best, most awesome bosses one can ever have! We also have the nicest, friendliest bunch of patients in the world! Frankly, it feels like family here!

I love working for Smile Today Dental because, aside from the reasons stated above, my job involves a variety of responsibilities from the front desk (paperwork), to the operatory (clinical assisting), to the consultation room (patient finances). It’s never boring and gives me my daily dose of exercise!

I live with my husband, Rodel, and our two kids, Carlo and Ysabelle. They are the love and joy of my life. I like singing, listening to music, and watching the news on TV. I try to apply principles of living and loving from life guru, Tony Robbins (courtesy of the Dr.!) and enjoy learning new foreign words from our Greek, Polish, French and Laotian patients.

I believe that life is too short to be too concerned about “stuff.” I just try to enjoy each day as it comes and be totally grateful for whatever that day brings.

Samcy -Hygienist



I am honored to graduate from Southern Illinois University which is the only program in state that provides a Bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene. I am humbled to have received the Hufriedy Golden Scaler Award, a cherished symbol of Dental Hygiene excellence which is awarded to one student from the graduating class. I am passionate about providing optimal care for my clients and more importantly providing them education on how they can improve or make changes in their oral health.

I feel fortunate to join Dr. Kidonakis and team because the whole team provides compassionate and exceptional care for each individual client. I am blessed to be a daughter, wife, sister and aunt of two awesome nephews. I am eagerly looking forward to meeting you and building a professional relationship with you as we work towards improving your oral health!

I started working at the front alongside Agnes in 2023, and I have loved getting to know all of our wonderful patients! I am a recent graduate of Loyola University Chicago, where I fostered my love of learning with a degree in biology and a minor in music.

In my free time, you can find me hanging out with my friends, puzzling, cuddling with my cats, or finding my new favorite coffee shop! I’m also currently trying to meet my Goodreads book goal for the year 🙂
