May We Introduce Ourselves?

Our Practice was established in 1958 by Dr. Richard Woods and built our current facility at 191 N. Green Bay Road, Waukegan.  The dental practice was joined by his daughter Dr. Kathleen Woods in 1986 after she received her doctorate in dentistry from Washington University.

Our Philosophy

Individual Consultation

Each treatment starts with a detailed analysis of the patient’s dental history, followed by a thorough consultation. We will always take our time to find out about your personal wishes and needs in order to explain the options to you. This process is based on many years of experience in combination with recent research findings.

Post-treatment care and long-term success

We are interested in long-term success and also affordable treatments. Hence, after your treatment, we offer you a follow-up and control timetable taking into account your individual dental profile.

Cost management

Treatment costs depend on the extent of your treatment plan. We provide transparency in this respect to help our patients  make the right choice with regard to goods and services they would like to purchase.

Pain Free, Guilt Free & Friendliness

Successful treatment can only be achieved in a positive setting. We believe that all dental procedures can be painless, guilt-free and done without judging your previous dental work or decisions. We are here to help you achieve what you want, regardless of whether that is to relieve pain, improve your smile or just enjoy dental visits again. Friendliness, hygiene and modern dentistry are core values of our practice.
