Dante Fiandaca DDS has been practicing periodontics and dental implant care in the Northwest Illinois area since 1996. Living in the Chicago area his entire life, he decided to begin his own practice in Algonquin with the purpose of providing excellent dental care while making sure each experience is a positive one for the patient.
Dr. Fiandaca received his D.D.S. degree from the University of Illinois, graduating with top honors as well as being inducted into the honorary dental society Omicron Kappa Upsilon. During his collegiate education, he participated in a research study and subsequently became published in the Journal of Pain. Wishing to stay in Illinois, he applied for and was accepted into the post-doctoral program for periodontics study at the University of Illinois. Upon graduating and receiving his degree in periodontics, he was invited to join the university as a clinical professor. He continued to teach dental students for over seven years while maintaining a private practice.
The fields of periodontology and dental implantology are continually advancing. Dr. Fiandaca attends many continuing education courses to hone his skills, and assimilate evidence-based techniques, procedures and equipment into his practice. In addition, he belongs to several organizations which include the:
- American Academy of Periodontology
- American Dental Association
- Chicago Dental Society
- McHenry County Dental Society
- Fox River Valley Dental Society
- Excellence Study Club
He is frequently asked to present lectures focusing on subjects within his field of expertise at many of these organizations. He has lectured on dental implants, sinus augmentations and cosmetic procedures; to name a few. He attends 30+ hours of continuing education each year with the purpose of remaining at the forefront of his field.
In 1996, Dr. Fiandaca became a member of the hospital staff at Sherman Hospital. In 2005, he was asked to become Chief of Staff, Dental Department at Sherman Hospital where he currently still serves in that role while maintaining his private practice.
Fiandaca Periodontics as an office also volunteers within our community. We have donated our time and resources to such worthy organizations as Give Kids a Smile, McHenry County Cooperative Clinic, Mission of Mercy and many others. Through these, and other worthy organizations, we have helped hundreds of people receive dental care when they might not otherwise be able to get treatment.
From a more personal side, Dante is a family man committed to his wife, children and dog! He has been married for over 15 years and has three children, all attending school in the Algonquin/Huntley area. He loves coaching his daughter’s softball team and helping his two sons in basketball. He believes in family and integrity, both of which were instilled in him by his parents. Growing up, he was taught that your name and integrity are the most valuable possessions you can ever hold. With those beliefs, Dr. Fiandaca continues to practice periodontics, always striving for perfection and doing what is right for the patient.
