About Us

The Choices in Dentistry Difference

What sets us apart?
Our philosophy and our people.

By taking the best of what biological and holistic dentistry have to offer and combining it with proven traditional treatments, we’ve become the only integrative dental office in the Chicago Loop. 

We put you in the driver’s seat when it comes to making decisions for your health. We’re here to educate and answer your questions. We’ll offer our guidance but the rest is up to you. You determine the course of your treatment and decide what’s best for you.

Our approach is so simple, so effective, and so empowering, you’ll wonder why no other dentist does it.

The doctors 

Dr. Patricia Gilleran

“When I woke up to how much traditional care was not prioritizing material safety, sustainable procedures, and holistic solutions, I knew I had to create an integrative practice. Not only do I create beautiful smiles, they’ll be in harmony with your entire body. ”

Away from the office: Making art, volunteering, parenting 4 teens and doing my best to find time for yoga!

Dr. Nellie Ghazal

“I look for the why in dentistry. Why are you here, what are your oral health goals, and how can we work together to achieve them?”

Away from the office: Playing tennis, reading, and quality time with her family and dog Roxie!
