Meet Dr. Petrelli
Dr. Charise Petrelli, D.D.S. began working at Glen Ellyn Dentistry in 2006. She takes care to be a kind hearted person who always thinks of others before herself. She has earned many degrees: a Bachelor of Music in music performance (flute) from University of Nebraska-Lincoln, a Master of Music degree from DePaul University, a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in dental sciences from University of Illinois, and a Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Illinois. Dr. Petrelli continues her dental education through her memberships in the American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society, Columbus Dental Society, and the Academy of General Dentistry. She chose to become a dentist because she has always loved and excelled in arts and sciences. She has designed Glen Ellyn Dentistry to be a modern dental practice that presents itself as a more relaxing environment for her patients, and loves when patients feel at ease at her practice.
When not working, Dr. Petrelli enjoys watching movies, cooking, reading novels, gardening, and spending time with her family and her dogs. She also enjoys traveling and hopes to continue to travel and see more of the world.
Dr. Petrelli says “I wish to make my practice a place that is comfortable but clean and provides modern technology. I also want my patients to see the same happy faces when they come in, almost as if it was an extension of their own family. I like to get to know my patients as people rather than just as patients.”
