Dr. Martha Silva
We recently welcomed a new, friendly face to our office, Dr. Martha Silva. Dr. Silva has had a passion for dentistry since the age of 5. Knowing that she wanted to be a future dentist she made sure to learn as much as she could by taking dental assisting courses in high school and practicing as an orthodontic assistant in college. After college, she accomplished her dream of graduating from the University of Illinois College of Dentistry with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.
She had unique training right out of dental school serving as an active duty dentist with the U.S. Army. Her Army experience was unique in that it allowed her to serve our soldiers’ treatment needs in a group practice setting with other dental specialists who mentored her.
After exiting the Army, Dr. Silva moved back to Chicago where she practiced dentistry in Lakeview. Recently her family moved to the south side of Chicago where she decided it was time to find a closer dental office that would allow her to spend more time with her family and less time commuting. Dr. Silva is the mother of 2 girls and works well with children of all ages. She is friendly and full of good dental advice!
Dr. Silva is dedicated to learning about dentistry and staying informed about advances in technology and research. She was recently accepted into a 2 year program through the University of Florida School of Dentistry. She will be traveling once a month for the next 2 years to Florida in pursuit of her Mastership with the Academy of General Dentistry. The program includes over 600 hours of advanced training and continuing education in all fields of dentistry.
