Dr. Zaffer says...

Dr. Zaffer was born and raised in Chicagoland. He has a Bachelor's degree from UIC Chicago Campus in 1988 and has earned his Dental Degree from UIC College of Dentistry in 1992. He purchased his practice in Glen Ellyn in 1993. Dr. Zaffer, a 50-year old dentist, is skilled in all aspects of dentistry, with crown and bridge as a major part of his practice.

Dr. Zaffer utilizes cutting-edge equipment to provide the finest quality of dental care. He has Digita X-Rays which reduce radiation by 95%. He is equipped with 2 CEREC units which allow him to make and place crowns, inlays, and onlays in one visit. He also has dental lasers to perform some other dental procedures.

He feels blessed to be practicing dentistry in this great town. When he is not working at the dental office, he can usually be found with his 2 daughters who keep him busy with Lacrosse meets and Cheer practice. He has a French Bulldog named Taki who loves to go on walks.
