Since earning his Doctor of Dental Surgery from Northwestern University Dental School, Dr. James Cho has demonstrated a talent and enthusiasm for furthering his skills as a dentist. Earning his Certificate in Periodontal Surgery from Northwestern University, as well as his licensure in IV conscious sedation, Dr. Cho has also remained committed to continuing his education through world-class programs, such as the Dawson Academy for Full Mouth Reconstruction and TMJ, as well as the Misch Implant Institute for Surgical and Prosthetic Implants. Keeping abreast of the latest research, Dr. Cho is a Fellow of the International Congress of Implantology, and an active member of the American Equilibration Society, Chicago Dental Society, American Dental Association, and Illinois Dental Society. As a proud father, he has inspired his two children to pursue a career in dentistry as well. 

Joining Dr. James Cho is his daughter, Dr. Erin Cho. After earning her Degree in Dental Medicine from the University of Illinois at Chicago, Dr. Cho went on to complete her General Practice Residency at University of Chicago’s Evanston Hospital. Inspired by her father’s abilities to improve the quality of his patient’s lives, Dr. Cho appreciates dentistry as an essential health service to the public, and has gone on to become certified in some of the most modern treatment technology, such as Waterlase and Invisalign, so that her patients can benefit from the latest available options. When she’s not busy attending conferences with the Illinois State Dental Society, Chicago Dental Society, American Dental Association, and Academy of General Dentistry, Dr. Cho loves to spend time with her dog, Astro, and try out the many amazing restaurants of Chicago. 


Following the lead of the American Dental Association, your dentist in Des Plaines emphasizes a preventive approach to dentistry, seeking to prevent the development of dental conditions before they have the chance to develop. By coming in for bi-annual checkups and teeth cleanings, your dentist in Des Plaines can keep a close watch over the health of your teeth, gums, and jaws. It’s been proven that with regular visits to the dental office for preventive care, dental conditions are far more likely to be spotted early on, when they’re the easiest to address. For our pediatric patients, your dentist takes additional measures to prevent the development of cavities. From dental sealants, to the application of fluoride varnish to the teeth, your children’s oral health will be well-defended against dental decay.  

For patients with jaw problems, damaged or missing teeth, Healthy Dental Center provides world-class treatment options to restore your smile to optimal health. Offering state-of-the-art treatment for TMJ, full mouth reconstruction, and the foremost restorative and implant treatments, you’ll be in exceptional hands at your Des Plaines dental office. When it comes to restorations and dental prosthetics, your dentist uses only the highest quality fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, and implants for a result that’s custom tailored to the unique needs of your smile. For eligible patients, dental implants provide a remarkable solution for the replacement of single, multiple, or all teeth in a dental arch. Because implants are inserted to the bone underneath the gums, they provide unrivaled support for the placement of a custom crown or dental prosthesis.  

Providing laser dentistry to the Des Plaines area, certain procedures that we perform are less invasive and more comfortable than they are using traditional methods. Since their adaptation to dentistry in the early 90’s, the dental laser has reshaped the way that dentists address a range of dental ailments. Increasingly used to treat everything from cavities and gum disease, to oral lesions, and even the activation of teeth whitening systems, our professional staff is more than happy to discuss how you may stand to benefit from this remarkable treatment technology. 

We also offer stunning cosmetic services, from our professional grade teeth whitening system, to porcelain dental veneers, and Invisalign, you can trust that we’ll put your smile in the best light!
