James Ojjeh, DMD, is a distinguished dentist based in Bloomingdale, Illinois. With over a decade of experience, Dr. Ojjeh is a leading general and cosmetic dentist known for his advanced technical strategies and compassionate care. His hard work over the years has garnered him international recognition and earned him spots among the top dentists in Illinois, the United States, and the world. Dr. Ojjeh currently practices with Da Vinci Dental, which provides superior care in all aspects of dentistry ranging from regular checkups to dental implants and preventative treatments.
As he tells it, Dr. Ojjeh decided to become a dentist while pursuing his B.S. in dental technologies from Louisiana State University School of Dentistry:
As an undergraduate, I did dental technician work for cosmetic cases. I decided to become a dentist so that I could more directly help patients change their smiles and their lives, instead of having an indirect experience as a technician. I have always had a strong desire to help people and change their lives, so I decided to become a cosmetic dentist to change people's lives by giving them beautiful and attractive smiles.
With his heart set on becoming a top dentist, Dr. Ojjeh enrolled in the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. While in dental school, he worked as a certified dental lab technician, gaining valuable experience with the artistic side of dentistry and mastering the art of making crowns, bridges, implants, and many other prosthetic components that help restore patients' oral health and enhance their smiles.
Since earning his Doctor of Dental Medicine in 2004, Dr. Ojjeh has built a successful practice based on his usage of cutting-edge techniques and technologies to ensure the highest quality treatment for all of his patients. Today, he is known for his thorough and efficient patient care, and for providing patients with preventative treatments and oral health education along with addressing any of their current concerns. With a commitment to high-quality and compassionate patient treatment, Dr. Ojjeh takes patient fears and concerns into consideration and takes the necessary time to put each patient at ease and fully educate them on their options. For his kindness and expertise, Dr. Ojjeh has been recognized with Vitals Patient Choice Award, as well as the title of Top Dentist in Naperville and Top 100 Dentists in the World, among many other prestigious accolades.
As someone who started his career at a pivotal point in technological growth, Dr. Ojjeh has seen a lot of changes in dental resources over the years. In particular, he has been paying close attention to the advancement in computer-aided design restorations. He noted:
The cutting-edge in dental technology enables cosmetic dentists to restore patients' smiles with the best natural-looking dental restorations, including porcelain veneers, zirconia crowns, zirconia bridges, ceramic and zirconia implant restorations, and ceramic inlays.
Also, new chair-side dental innovations like the use of intra-oral cameras enable cosmetic dentists to detect teeth cavities, fractures and defective restorations (fillings, crowns, and bridges).
And finally, the use of DentalVibe (pain-free injections), Isolite System (dental isolation system), and digital X-rays (90% less than traditional X-rays) and other dental innovations improve efficiency and clinical results, while ensuring patient safety and comfort. They are faster, higher-quality, and safer.
Outside of his time in the office, Dr. Ojjeh is actively involved in his community as a volunteer for a dental outreach program that treats and educates children growing up in underserved areas. He also tutors children in the areas of math and science. When he is not working or volunteering, enjoys spending quality time with his family.
After nearly a decade-and-a-half dedicated to dentistry, Dr. Ojjeh envisions a bright future ahead. In the coming years, he hopes to make Da Vinci Dental into a cosmetic dentistry hub, expanding to different branches in the state of Illinois and possibly around the country.
