Biography

Dr. Scott Frank received his undergraduate education at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana and his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from Northwestern University in 1987. Dr. Frank was selected from numerous applicants by the American Cancer Society to participate in a head and neck cancer externship at the University of Chicago Hospital. He then completed an intensive residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C. This program placed a strong emphasis on dentoalveolar surgery (including the excision of wisdom teeth, extractions, bone and tissue grafts, infections, pathology, and trauma and anesthesia techniques). Dr. Frank's specialized interests include hard and soft tissue reconstructive surgery, regenerative bone grafting, sinus bone grafting for the placement of dental implants, smile enhancement techniques, and the removal of teeth and wisdom teeth. Dr. Frank served as a surgeon of a prominent dental implant team specializing in the Refresh Smile (All-On-4) technique. He has performed almost 1,000 Refresh Smile procedures. Since his training, he has focused much of his attention on educating dentists on dental implant restorative techniques and the Refresh Smile (All-On-4) procedure. Dr. Frank has been performing Refresh Smile in our office and enjoys being able to help patients change their lives! With nearly 30 years of experience in his field, Dr. Frank has earned an elite designation amongst his peers and patients. Dr. Frank has been loyal to his home state of Illinois, only leaving for his residency in Washington, D.C. and coming back directly afterward to form his own practice.

Lake Zurich, IL |
Waited for a consultation 70 min and then brought into a lavish office where a medical assistant who had all our information asked us questions to stall before seeing Dr. Frank. The X-rays were not there from the referring office and despite the referring DDS speaking with Dr. FRank personally the week before nothing was in the records. We were given a Starbucks gift card for the wait inconvenience and left alone. We called another provider and left. We will NOT be back

Doctor is good, the surgery was done very well and there was very minimal pain the next day onwards. The office staff, however, is not as efficient. Our first appointment was for CT scan. I had called that day to confirm the appt since it was our first time. However, on reaching there they mentioned the machine was broken, something they should have told me when I called. Just a shrug, no apologies. They took a long time to provide insurance details. I hope not to have to work with them again.

I found Dr. Frank knowledgeable, professional, open to answering questions, and informative. The office staff is friendly, efficient, well informed and accommodating. Many scans were taken of my jaw to make sure the procedure would give me the best outcome. Everything went as planned. I have healed well and look forward to having a crown put in place. Thank you Dr. Frank!

I've been to Dr. Frank twice---the first time to have a wisdom tooth pulled and today to have another tooth pulled and an implant put in. From discussions about cost, explanation of treatment, to the procedures themselves, the care was excellent. Today's extraction was more difficult than my wisdom tooth, but I was treated with care throughout the whole surgery. Dr. Frank explained everything he was doing, and I felt like the center of attention the whole time I was there. VERY pleased!

My son was here for his wisdom teeth extraction and from the start the staff at North Shore Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery were friendly and courteous. Dr Frank, his assistants Lela and Alex explained the process and reviewed any issues with knowledge, skill, and professionalism. The receptionists were so helpful in checking and ensuring all insurance details and payments were scheduled and processed on our behalf. They provided all the post-procedure healing aids so that he was comfortable
in Vernon Hills, IL |
Dr. Frank is very compassionate, knowledgeable, and professional. His staff is outstanding. I highly recommend his office!
