Dr. Anna Kolencherry, DMD
Dr. Kolencherry obtained her BS in Biology, with a minor in Chemistry at The University of Illinois-Chicago. Her love of the city kept her in Chicago, where she completed her DMD degree at her alma mater and was awarded Elenore Bushee senior student award.
She found her calling in Dentistry when she went to her orthodontist and saw “smile – architect” on his door. Once she looked more into it, she realized that it encompasses everything she loves – artistry, science, technical skills, and communication.
Her objective is to provide comprehensive treatment; restoring function and a healthy smile so that her patients can smile with confidence and chew without pain. She hopes to reduce dental-phobia with transparent patient communication and an open environment based on mutual trust.
