Provider Spotlight: Jonathan Trakakis
Year Started at KCHC:
What areas do you specialize in?
Healthcare & Management focused in Dentistry.
Brief description of your professional expertise/experience/reason for choosing your field:
I have eight years of on and off dental experience between dental assisting, supervising and practice management. My family life has been dentistry, with my father being a General Dentist and my mother being a Dental Assistant. My main reason for choosing the field is to provide healthcare for patients in need with the skills and education I have grown up with and learned. My goal is to one day provide services as a Dentist myself.
Why did you choose to work for Kenosha Community Health Center, Inc.?
I chose to work at KCHC because it provided a new opportunity for me to provide care to underserved patients in need, and utilize the management skills I’ve learned from managing at a DSO. I support the clinical staff and providers here to provide better care for our patients, and I am using this opportunity to ultimately further my education and advancement in the Dental field.
I earned my Bachelors from the University of Iowa in Health Studies with a Pre-Dental Focus; I then attended my first Master’s Program at Midwestern University in Biomedical Sciences, and I am currently attending my second Master’s Program to earn an online MBA in Healthcare Administration through Benedictine University.
Kenosha Dental Clinic and Silver Lake Dental Clinic
Community Involvement or Hobbies Outside KCHC:
I am an avid automotive enthusiast and love working on, driving and buying cars. This is a love passed onto me from my father and one which I will pass onto my children.
