Chicago Illinois Dentist Veronica Ramirez D D S

Dr. Ramirez loves coming to Pure Dental Spa every day because she enjoys the clean and calming environment, and she says the knowledgeable staff enables and encourages her to do her absolute best work. With her, your comfort in the dental chair matters just as much as the health of your teeth and the beauty of your smile. To learn a little more about her ahead of your visit, read on below.

Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

Dr. Ramirez says that she knew she wanted to become a dentist since she was eight years old. As a child, she spent a lot of time at the dentist’s office and was always fascinated by the technical and artistic aspects of dentistry. Despite her interest, she has few positive memories of her experiences with the doctors and staff. She remembers seeing her grandma’s dentures and being told that it’s normal to not have teeth when you’re old. As she matured, she realized there was a huge dental health disparity in the Hispanic communities. This all motivated her to become a compassionate dental provider who desired to help people from diverse backgrounds achieve healthy smiles.

Where Did You Study Dentistry?

Dr. Ramirez graduated from Northeastern University, and while there, she interned at the Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. She worked as an oral health coordinator and helped patients bridge the gap between dental and general health care.  She went on to earn her dental degree at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry. After that, she practiced in both Virginia and Cleveland before coming back to her native Chicago. Today, she is a proud member of the Hispanic Dental Association.

Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?

At home, Dr. Ramirez loves to cook from scratch so she can explore different cuisines firsthand. She also enjoys going for hikes and traveling to the beach or mountainous areas for scenic walks.
