I'm Sam!  I began seeing Dr. Marty as a patient at the age of three, and have been working along side him since 2005. I graduated from Indiana University's South Bend Dental Assisting program as a certified expanded functions dental assistant.   I enjoy spending time with my son Dominik and my family. 


I’m Patty.  I’m Dr. Marty’s receptionist and wife.  We’ve been married for over 40 years, and I’ve worked in the office since 2005.  Before that I was a French teacher.  We have two children, who live in Virginia and New Hampshire. They have given us 7 beautiful grandchildren!  In the office I process your insurance claims, answer the phone, and schedule appointments.  You will probably talk with me when you call, and I look forward to hearing from you!


Hello, my name is Jen and I am the newest member of Dr Szakaly's team of dental professionals. I am a licensed dental hygienist and have been practicing in this area for nearly 20 years. I attended IUSB, receiving an Associate of Science in Dental Hygiene degree in 1999, and a Bachelor of General Studies degree in 2000. I began my career serving the underprivileged at a Neighborhood Clinic on the Southeast side of South Bend before returning to IUSB where I taught a course in ethics and jurisprudence and provided clinical instruction to the future dental hygienist of our community. Over the years, I have also worked in a number of private practices. I am happily married to my husband Jack, have three sons, Christian, Jackson, and Jenson, and a new puppy named Max. I am happy to be part of the team and look forward to seeing you!  


Hi I’m Chelsea. I started working for Dr. Marty in March of 2016, as a Dental Assistant. I am certified in radiology, coronal polishing, and fluoride application.  I completed a nine month Dental Assisting program, as well as a six week externship with a dentist located in Granger. I’ve learned so much since joining Dr. Marty Szakaly’s dental team, and I’m proud to be his assistant.  Outside of work I’m raising a handsome, most of the time wild, little boy named Riley. I enjoy mom life, even waking up at night stepping on mini dinosaurs.  I like reading Celebrity News, watching movies, biking, and doing anything outside with animals, and especially taking my son out on his ATV.
