The word “pioneer” comes to mind when describing Dr. Steven Koos. After graduating from Northwestern University Dental School, the doctor also pursued his medical degree from Case Western Reserve University. His education and training did not stop there. He then began a six-year intensive residency program in general surgery, anesthesiology, and oral and maxillofacial surgery. In 2008 he established his private practice and proceeded to take dentistry and oral surgery in Chicago to the next level.
Additionally, Dr. Koos has augmented his professional education with formalized graduate studies and certifications in the field of Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility.
