Dr. Donald J. Provenzale Jr, DDS – Implant Dentist in Downers Grove, IL 60515
At the time, he was conducting anesthesia research and was given the opportunity to pursue an M.D. degree and ultimately continue training toward becoming a board-certified Anesthesiologist. Due to his love for Dentistry, however, he declined the offer.
Since that time, he has amassed thousands of hours of post-doctoral dental education, primarily in the field of Implant Dentistry.
Dr. Provenzale is now recognized as a leader in the field, and is one of only 500 Dentists worldwide to be honored with the distinction of board-certification in the emerging dental specialty of Oral Implantology.
He is an active member of the American Dental Association, American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and regularly volunteers for both the Illinois Foundation of Dentistry for the Handicapped and Donated Dental Services.
Dr. Provenzale, Jr.’s hobbies include playing trumpet in multiple bands and men’s-league ice hockey.
ChewsWisely is a state-of-the-art dental implant center offering a full range of dental implant services. These include both surgical and prosthetic phases, all performed by one doctor, start to finish. Unlike the “big-box” implant centers, however, we are also able to offer a complete array of general dental services through our affiliated general dental practice, ProDental. If you already have had an implant consultation, and been told you need to have perfectly good teeth removed in order to have implants, there may be a better solution. You are making an important decision, a second opinon may be a “wise choice”.
At ChewsWisely, we are dedicated to providing a comfortable and inviting environment for all of our patients…but most of all, we are steadfast in delivering only the highest level quality of care, using the latest advances in technology and techniques, with a caring, gentle touch. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned for your overall health.
Training and Expertise
We understand that Dentistry is an ever-changing field, and we are committed to the pursuit of education in the latest advances in the Dental field so that we can offer to our patients state-of-the-art treatment. Dr. Provenzale is a true leader in the field and maintains credentials at the highest levels. He is one of the select few Dentists to have received formal medical training (i.e. Anesthesiology Residency) and is presently one of only a dozen Board-certified Oral Implantologist (i.e. Implant Dentist) practicing in the entire Chicago area.
We are also proud of our very well-educated staff members, each of whom have attained various dental certifications, and are experienced and committed to serving our patients’ needs.
Infection control in our office is of the utmost importance to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly adhere to sterilization and cross-contamination procedures using standards set forth by the ADA (American Dental Association), the CDC (Center for Disease Control), and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration.)
Additionally, we maintain the highest standard in technology and equipment for unforeseen medical emergencies including Pulse Oximetry, Automated Defibrillator, Endotracheal Tubes, and emergency pharmaceuticals. Dr. Provenzale is certified in ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support.)
Our goal is to provide the best dental care possible while being responsive to the needs of our patients. Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is the very essence of our practice, from the Doctors, our hygienists and throughout our dedicated staff as well. Although we are usually very busy, our policy is to immediately treat any patient in pain. The Doctor will at almost all times be available in the event of a dental emergency, night or day.
Our greatest reward is the health and satisfaction of our patients.
