Dr. Podlasek received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Illinois Chicago where she served as class president for her graduating class. 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 treatment, something she fosters while serving 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 Academy of General Dentistry. Through the many organizations that she is active in, as well as the hours of continuing education that she commits to, she hopes to stay on the leading edge of dental health and continue providing the highest quality dental care for many years to come.
Dr. Podlasek and her husband, Adam, enjoy spending time with their families and enjoy staying active. Dr. Podlasek plays co-ed volleyball and women’s softball, spending her more quiet times at home taking walks with her rescue dog, Jordan, or catching up on her reading.
