Richard Egan, DDS

For the past 22 years, Dr. Richard F. Egan has been practicing Periodontics and Implant  Dentistry in his Highland Park, Illinois office.  When treating periodontal disease, he tries to  stress a conservative, non-surgical approach to periodontics utilizing surgical procedures only  when absolutely indicated.

Dr. Egan is a graduate of the Loyola University School of Dentistry.  He then completed a year- long hospital based residence at Loyola University Medical Center, and then finished his  periodontal training at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine where he served  as Chief Resident in his final year of training.  His post graduate training has included multiple  courses in all phases of non-surgical and surgical periodontology as well as extensive training in  the field of dental implants.

In 2008, Dr. Egan was awarded Diplomate status by the American Board of Periodontology.  A  Diplomate completes additional oral and written examinations covering all phases of periodontal  diseases and its treatment including dental implants.  Regular re-certification is required to  maintain Diplomate status.  Dr. Egan is an active member of the American Academy of  Periodontology, the Academy of Osseointegration, American Dental Association, Illinois State  Dental Society and Chicago Dental Society.  He is also presently on staff at North Shore  University Health System Hospital.

Dr. Egan is dedicated to providing the latest techniques in the fields of Periodontics and  Implantology.  He is constantly attending continuing education courses to keep current with all  advances in both fields as they become available.  Dr. Egan tries to integrate a compassionate  caring approach to evidence-based practice and brings that philosophy to each and every patient  appointment.
