Hi, my name is Dr. Phillip Palella and I am the owner of Modern Dental Chicago. I am very proud to be practicing here in my hometown, Chicago. I was born, raised, and educated here in the great state of Illinois. I believe the people of “The Windy City” are the most hard working, resilient people in the world. It is an honor to provide dental care to the people of Chicago.

I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry in 2004. While in school, I was the recipient of the Army Health Professional Scholarship Program (HPSP) award. Our great country paid for my dental education and I will forever be grateful. During my time in the Army, I gained the skills to manage patients with complex and difficult dental needs. I received additional education and training in oral surgery, restorative bonding, and cosmetics. I expanded my knowledge and skills as a general dentist, while serving our great men and women in uniform. I also deployed to Iraq in 2007 for fifteen months for Operation Iraqi Freedom with the 1st Cavalry Division.

I understand that for most people dental treatment can be stressful and unpleasant. Our office is designed to provide a relaxing, comfortable environment where patients can receive the best dental treatments available. My goal is to make each visit a positive experience. I get the most satisfaction when I hear a patient say, “That was easy”, “We’re done already?”, or “That was painless.” Communication between patient and dentist is critical to a successful relationship. I want to make sure that my patients are educated about all procedures, that all treatment options are explained, and that all their questions have been answered.

I am a member of many professional organizations and have completed many hours of continuing education. I place great importance on providing the highest standard of care for my patients. Continuing education is necessary to offer the latest most advanced treatment options available. I am committed to providing family and cosmetic dentistry to all age groups. I look forward to meeting with you and providing your dental care.
