About Your Dentist

Inna Anssari, DDS

"Dear Patients, I am proud of my team members. Each coworker has been with our Modern Dentistry dental clinic for many years. Each of them is a unique individual sharing a common philosophy: to provide outstanding, timely treatment in a comforting and comfortable environment. ~ Dr. Inna Anssari, DDS"

Dr. Inna Anssari, DDS, is the owner of Modern Dentistry. She has been recognized by the International Association of Dentists as the Top Dentist in Illinois for her outstanding work and experience as a general and cosmetic dentist.

"My introduction to dentistry came from my mother who was a dentist in Tashkent. I love my profession as it allows me to meet interesting people from very different backgrounds and from different cultures and positively impact their quality of life – from eliminating pain to enhancing their smile."

Since she opened her office in 1993, she and her team members have earned a reputation for being a dentist you and your family can trust and go to when you need help – be it for regular check-ups or for more advanced work like cosmetic dental implants, veneers, teeth whitening or to receive a BOTOX treatment.

Because Dr. Anssari is dedicated to staying up-to-date with the latest technologies, she is frequently among the first dentists to utilize the newest, more effective and most advanced techniques and equipment available in the dental field.

She graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City Dental School in 1990. Prior to dental school, she graduated from UMKC with a degree in psychology. In 1996 Dr. Anssari completed a year-long course in Implantology, which enables her to perform surgical and prosthetic phases of implant dentistry in her office.

Dr. Anssari is an Associate Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID). She is also a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), CDS, ISDS, and Advanced Dental Implant Studies group. The Advanced Dental Implant Studies (ADIS) group is an association of Implant Dentists from throughout the United States, each of whom has received advanced training in Implant Dentistry.

Dr. Anssari keeps up to date on developments in the field of dentistry through professional literature, lectures, and conferences in order to ensure that her patients receive the most comprehensive and advanced dental care.

In 2012, Dr. Anssari moved her Modern Dentistry office to the new location in Buffalo Grove. It is a beautiful, upscale office equipped with the latest technology.
