Meet Our Cosmetic and Implant Dentists in Chicago

There are many aspects of The Dental Implant Associates (Oradent Associates) that differentiate our center from other dental practices. At our office, we provide patients with a warm welcome and a family-like atmosphere. From the moment they arrive, patients are treated like they are honored guests. Our friendly staff is like one big family; most employees have been with us for at least 10 years, and some have spent more than 25 years working with our cosmetic and implant dentists.

Our Chicago office is spacious, with multiple treatment rooms and a lounge to relax in while having longer procedures. We also have an on-site lab, so cases can be accomplished in one location and not sent out for completion. Our doctors are committed to regular participation in continuing education courses to ensure that they provide their patients the best possible care. A skilled, gracious staff and state-of-the-art treatment in general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and implant dentistry are just a few of the reasons why our patients stay with us for generation after generation.
