Here at Periodontal Medicine & Surgical Specialists of Chicago, IL, helping restore and maintain your dental health is our primary mission. Our guiding philosophy is that top-quality care requires a strong relationship as its foundation between both patient and periodontist in Chicago, Oak Brook, and Park Ridge, IL. That’s why we get to know you and your specific needs through sincere, meaningful communication before we provide you with any treatment. Our team listens to all of your questions and makes certain that you get answers that you need. We use this essential interaction not only as an opportunity to discuss your current oral health but also to educate you on all the treatment options we offer to address any conditions that you may have. In our experience, no two patients are alike, and therefore each should be given individualized attention to help them make the right choices for their dental health. Here you’re not just a patient but a valued partner and collaborator in your own care. Whichever path you take, you can count on one consistent aspect of your treatment: a holistic approach that acknowledges the connection between your dental health and your systemic health and seeks to improve both.

Hopelessly decayed or missing teeth need never again stop you from enjoying your favorite foods, having a conversation, or simply smiling at someone you love. With dental implants, you can get back everything you lost, and gain confidence like you never had before. Today’s preferred teeth replacement option, dental implants look amazing and are designed to be permanent.
Your body can rebuild itself with a little help from dental science and our team of surgical specialists. We offer several groundbreaking tissue regeneration treatments that harness your body’s natural self-healing powers to enhance your dental health and make your jaws strong enough to support dental implants.
A modern approach to orthodontic care, we offer Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Therapy (SFOT) to effectively and efficiently straighten teeth. SFOT allows us to avoid unnecessary ‘side effects’ of orthodontics including tooth extractions before treatment and a lifetime of gum recession after. As a result of the SFOT technique, straight, health smiles are also often achieved in half the time.
