Phillip S. Finkel, DDS

In private practice for more than three decades, Dr. Finkel was most recently honored as a top dentist by Chicago Magazine, recognized by his peers for professional excellence. His passion for ensuring his patients enjoy healthy, attractive smiles has led to a strong focus on restorative, implant, cosmetic, and aesthetic dentistry.

A Cubs fan since childhood, Dr. Finkel had the ultimate privilege of treating “Mr. Cub” Ernie Banks as a long-time patient at Dental Professionals. Outside of work, Dr. Finkel is relishing his empty nester status with his wife Ilene and enjoys biking, golfing, and visiting his adored grandchildren in New York.

He is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and served as a Clinical Operative Instructor at the University of Illinois College of Dentistry. Dr. Finkel earned his dental degree from Northwestern University.

“The ability to reverse preconceived notions about the inevitability of discomfort and provide patients with a painless, relaxed, and extremely satisfying experience is what I treasure most about practicing dentistry. Every member of our staff is likewise dedicated to ensuring patients are cared for with extraordinary kindness and attention.”  -Dr. Phil Finkel
