Meet Dr. Jercinovic
Ernest Jercinovic, DDS
I’ve known that I wanted to be a dentist ever since I had to get braces in elementary school. Most other kids were just embarrassed, but I was fascinated by the whole process. I’ve been in practice for over 20 years now and the field still fascinates me, especially cosmetic and restorative work. It makes a huge difference in people’s lives when I can make their smile as beautiful as they had imagined.
My patients say I’m very approachable. I just give them straightforward information and answer all their questions, big or small, so that they can make a good decision about the best treatment plan for them personally. The office is set up with state-of-the-art equipment, but maintains a comfortable and welcoming feel. My dental hygienists are terrific; they are so friendly and they do a meticulous job keeping everybody’s teeth and gums healthy.
Patients trust us because they know we have the best clinical care and the most advanced technology available. But they keep coming back because we treat them just like family. When they have any kind of trouble, they can reach me with an emergency number, day or night. We have convenient hours in the evenings and weekends so that we can accommodate all patients’ schedules.
My patients trust me to make their smiles look great, because I take the time to answer their questions and explain their options in a straightforward way.
I was born and raised in downtown Chicago, and I love being able to walk around the best parts of the city. There’s always something to do here — a new restaurant to explore, a new movie to see. I also love riding my bike near the lake, where I’ve begun training for a few triathlons.
