Sue Goldberg | Office Manager


Office Manager

Sue is one of our veterans in the office having been here since 1994. Whether you have an insurance issue, need to coordinate dental care or just need to schedule an appointment, Sue will help you with all your dental concerns. She can steer you to a great restaurant as well!

In her free time, Sue can be found in Michiana with her family and friends soaking up a good book or relaxing on the beach.

“My longevity with EDA has afforded me the opportunity to really get to know our patients well. Not just dentally, but really know and follow them, their families and their lives through the years. It occurred to me the other day that Dr. Silberman was treating a little girl whose great grandmother was a patient, who I knew well…. what an amazing accomplishment! I truly cherish these ongoing dental and personal connections that say so much about who we are at EDA and what we work so hard to achieve.”

Alicia Haughey


Registered Dental Hygienist

Alicia began her dental career in 1995 as an assistant and went back to school to earn her degree in Dental Hygiene in 2002 from Harper College. In fact, she and Jennifer were in school together! She has been with our practice since 2010 and our patients love her. Always smiling, she has a great personality that coincides with her excellent technical ability. Alicia has advanced training in local anesthesia and continues taking continuing education to improve her skills.

When she’s not in the office, Alicia, who is happily married and has 3 beautiful girls, loves spending time at her family house in Lake Geneva.

“As a dedicated Dental Hygienist, having the opportunity to work for Evanston Dental Associates has been rewarding both personally and professionally. I have achieved personal fulfillment by providing a valuable health care service while establishing trusting relationships with patients and the experience of working for Drs. Silberman and Silberman has refined the comprehensive clinical skills required to meet the oral health needs of a wide variety of patients.”

Alicia Haughey


Registered Dental Hygienist

Jennifer joined Evanston Dental Associates in 2002 after completing the dental hygiene program at Harper College and has been here ever since! Her training also included certification in local anesthetic administration and nitrous oxide sedation, and she was the 2002 president of SADHA, the student affiliate of the Dental Hygiene Association. Prior to earning her dental hygienist certification, Jennifer was a dental assistant in a general dentistry practice for six years.

Jennifer’s goal as a dental hygienist is to interact with patients on a one-on-one basis to help better develop oral health plans suited to their individual needs. She focuses on patient education by going beyond the basics of brushing and flossing and taking time to share with patients the importance of dental health in relation to overall health and well-being.

Jennifer is married with 3 children- older sister Natalie as well as younger twin girls, Olivia and Emily. She also loves her Chicago Bears!

“The most important thing for any hygienist is to be in an office that stays current with today’s technology and to practice with dentists that share the same dental philosophy of providing the patients with the best care possible. I certainly have that here with Drs. Silberman and Silberman.”

"The best way to describe Dr. Silberman is to say he’s an artist. The more complicated the problem is, the more of a perfectionist he becomes. I’ll say, ‘It’s fine, it’s fine,’ and he’ll say, ’No, it can be a little better.’"
