Dr. Tilden's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Tilden "In June 2016 we were thrilled to welcome Dr. Tilden’s son, Dr. Zack (as the patients and staff call him) as our second full-time General and Cosmetic Dentist. He worked directly with Dr. Tilden for 4 years to learn his proven clinical techniques and diagnostic skills prior to attending dental school at UIC. Dr. Zack’s approach to dental care reflects that the doctor-patient relationship is a team effort, so by asking questions and listening to your needs, he comes to an understanding of what your goals are and how he can make those a reality. Dr. Zack is our preventative dentistry guru. His goal is to arm you with the knowledge you need to be cavity-free for years. He also has a focus on minimally invasive dental procedures, cosmetic smile design, which refers to any cases involving the front teeth, and replacing teeth with implants. He is currently using his depth of knowledge to develop an all-encompassing blueprint and cheatsheet entitled, The How to Guide for Healthy Gums and a Cavity-Free Life! In addition, he is excited to be developing new continuing education materials that will be used by thousands of dentists worldwide. Outside of our office, Dr. Zack is a member of the Chicago Dental Society, American Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry. Like Dr. Tilden, he is a member of three specialty study clubs for advanced education and attends at least one course per month. Dr. Zack is the outreach coordinator at Tilden Dental Group, which means he stays informed about all volunteer dental events offered throughout the year and is responsible for helping us reach our goal of donating $20,000 worth of free dental care each year. As of March 14th, 2017, we have already reached $13,000 in pro bono care! After work hours Dr. Zack enjoys working out, bike riding on Lake Shore Drive, listening to podcasts, and getting to know Chicago’s food scene."
