Ivan Valcarenghi, DDS, FWCM
Dr. Valcarenghi makes dreams come true for his patients and truly loves creating beautiful smiles. Following graduation from the University of Illinois College of Dentistry in 1986, Dr. Valcarenghi completed a fellowship in oral cancer with The American Cancer Society. He then went on to provide his services to the Claretian Medical Center, a South Chicago community health center for three years before starting his own practice in Elmhurst, Illinois. He has since acquired nearly 5,000 hours of continuing education in cosmetic dentistry, neuromuscular dentistry, sleep medicine, and a variety of other fields. He has studied under many of the foremost leaders in dentistry, and is considered to be one himself.
Dr. Valcarenghi is committed to giving back to his community. He is active in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s “Give Back a Smile” program, where he works as a volunteer, restoring the smiles of women who have been abused. He created the Advanced Dental Study Group where Chicagoland dentists meet monthly to share ideas and learn. He is a founder and fellow in the World Congress of Microdentistry (now Minimally Invasive Dentistry).
Known as Chicago’s “Extreme Makeover” cosmetic dentist, Dr. Valcarenghi can frequently be heard on the radio in the Chicagoland area. He also regularly speaks to dentists and the public on dental health issues, and he has published numerous articles. Dr. Valcarenghi’s relentless pursuit of education, training, and perfection of his skills is why he is counted among the foremost leaders of Cosmetic Dentistry today.
