What I love about my work is the relationships I have built with my patients over time and seeing the positive changes on people as a result of their treatment.  It’s an honor and a privilege to serve our wonderful patients. I am passionate about what I do and I believe that a  beautiful smile can be a huge confidence builder and can be life changing. After all, your smile can influence how others perceive you.  I am committed to exceeding your expectations in creating the smile of your dreams. I will always treat you like family, give you personal attention and  will work with you to achieve your desired results. When I am not at the office I enjoy reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. I live in Prospect Heights with my husband, Patrick, and our three children, Brian, Mary and Diana. I look forward to meeting you.”

Dr. Patrycja Radon

“I completed my undergraduate degree with honors from University of Illinois at Chicago. I then earned my Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree from Midwestern University. I dedicate my free time to continuing education through Spear Academy in areas of aesthetic dentistry and orthodontics. While commuting to work, I listen to dental podcasts that cover a variety of topics that range from the latest technology in dentistry to implementing the best dental care possible to patients.

Outside the office, I enjoy scoring points on the sand volleyball courts, listening/dancing to live music, and finding the next best restaurant in town. While growing up, I attended polish school and to this day I love the polish culture, music, and food. Ask me about my furry miniature golden retriever who loves to jump into big piles of snow/puddles & steal everything he can around the house.

Fun fact about me? I never pictured myself becoming dentist because of the fear I experienced in the dental office as I was growing up. I am here to tell you that I went into this field because I believe I can help you feel at ease with your dental treatment. Because of my past, I can understand the struggles that you may have.

Why not make your next dental visit a time where we can both laugh and smile in the dental chair together? I promise to not only make you feel comfortable so we can address your concerns in a judgement free zone, but to also provide the quality work that you deserve. I look forward in having the pleasure to meeting you all and getting to know you on a personal level!"
