As some of you may already know, our on-site periodontist Dr. Jennifer Shango has made the difficult decision to consolidate her practice in the suburbs and end her schedule with us in the city. We have loved working with Dr. Shango for the past year and are sad to see her go, but we are excited to welcome our new on-site specialist Dr. Scott Drucker!
Originally from southern Florida, Dr. Scott started at the University of Pennsylvania for undergrad and dental school; in 2016 he completed his residency in Periodontics at University of Illinois at Chicago. His collaborative research at UPenn, UIC, and Hadassah Hospital has been published in several peer-reviewed journals.
As the son of two physicians, he has always been drawn to the healthcare field and uniquely positioned to identify inefficiencies and devise solutions. Finding himself disappointed at best by the practice resources available to dental clinicians when he graduated, he was inspired to create the start up Supply Clinic. This online resource makes vetted, high quality materials available to users directly from their sources, increasing efficiency and transparency when supplying a practice.
Clinically, Dr. Scott specializes in bringing patients with periodontal disease and tooth loss back to oral health; the procedures he’ll be helping our practice with include bone and connective tissue grafting, wisdom tooth extractions, and implant placement. He is an active member of the American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society, Chicago Dental Society, Academy of Osseointegration, and certified by the Board of Periodontology.
We can't wait to see how our patients will benefit from this new relationship. If you are in need of a periodontal consult or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our administrative team today!
