I’m Dr. Nellie Sutherland, DDS
“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?”
I joined Dr. Gilleran at Choices in Dentistry in May of 2019. I first became interested in dentistry as an intern at an oral surgeon’s office. The more I experienced the more I fell in love! I am truly passionate about dentistry and I’m grateful to wake up every day and do what I love for a living.
I enjoy all aspects of dentistry, but my favorite thing about being a dentist is being a lifetime learner!
How I help my patients
I love working with patients to personalize their dental needs and help them achieve their oral health goals. Every patient is unique, so it’s very important to me to talk to each one of them about their particular needs, fears, and expectations; so we can work together in creating the best treatment plan.
Education & Certifications
My Dental Philosophy
Things you probably didn’t know about me…
I grew up in a big tennis family. Me and my 2 sisters all play tennis, and my dad used to be our coach.
Before moving to Chicago in 2017, I had never lived anywhere with snow. It’s quite an adjustment to get used to!
I love going to comedy shows at Second City and IO theater. It’s something so iconic and unique to Chicago, and I always have a great time when I go.
Who I am outside the office
I love trying new restaurants in the city, but I also love to cook at home. Doug and I love to travel and experience new cities and countries. Our favorite place we’ve visited together so far is Iceland!
