She has taken courses from the leading institutes in dental education including Spear Education and the Dawson Academy. She is an active member of the Seattle Study Club which is a group that dedicates itself to excellence in the profession. She is excited to share her knowledge and provide the best possible care to each patient as if she were treating members of her own family.
On a more personal note, Dr. Snow met her husband, Russell, shortly after graduating from dental school and moving to Chicago. Russell works as an Investment Wholesaler for Morningstar Investment Services in downtown Chicago. Dr. Snow and her husband lived in Chicago for several years before moving to Tinley Park, IL where they now reside. They have been married since 2009 and while they do not yet have any children, they have adopted a rescue dog named Rocky, who required almost as much attention as a child. When she is not caring for patients, Dr. Snow loves to travel and explore new places, read, attend concerts and spend time with family and friends. She has participated in a multitude of charitable races from 5k’s to triathlons but more recently can be found riding her bike or going on a run for leisure, not competition. Dr. Snow is truly passionate about dentistry but finds it important to keep a balance between her work life and her family life.
Dr. Snow is extremely excited that she has returned to private practice and is eager to continue to get to know all of the wonderful patients that Dr. Dailide has cared for over the years.
