Dr. Metzger says...

After completing her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at Marquette School of Dentistry, Dr. Metzger had the unique experience of training in a hospital-based General Practice Residency in Chicago, IL.  She was exposed to advanced dental conditions that are rarely seen in the general population and trained to manage them appropriately.  Dr. Metzger was on-call for Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, a Level I trauma center, where she treated patients in a busy ER setting. She spent a month at Cook County Hospital performing oral surgery, and traveled on a mobile dental van treating homeless populations and persons with special needs.  She received advanced IV sedation training and learned to manage difficult treatment needs in a diverse population in both the operating room and in a traditional dental clinic.

Before opening Metzger Family Dental PLLC in 2009, Dr. Metzger had the good fortune to work in 2 dental offices where she received strong mentorship and cemented her conservative  and comprehensive dental philosophy.  Dr. Metzger truly enjoys dentistry and the opportunity to provide patients with overall health and well-being in a relaxed and compassionate atmosphere.
