She has been practicing dentistry in private practice since 2004. She prefers to be known as Dr. Lynn to her patients, and she thoroughly enjoys her daily interactions with people, working hard to make all her patients feel as comfortable as possible while providing superior dental care. She also likes to educate her patients about dental health and treatments, something she fostered when she serverd on faculty at the UIC College of Dentistry as Assistant Clinical Instructor.
Dr. Podlasek is involved in many of the organized dental associations, including the American Dental Association, Chicago Dental Society, Illinois State Dental Society, American Dental Education Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
