Learn About Our Deer Park Dentists

Dr. Bruce Privatsky, DDS   

    Hello, and welcome to Deer Park Dental I would like to begin by telling you about myself, my staff and how I can best service your needs while making your experience with us a comfortable one.

    In 1985, I graduated from Loyola University in Chicago with a Bachelor of Science and Biology degree.   I continued my education at Loyola University of Dentistry where I was awarded a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1989. I began my career with a dental practice in Deerfield working for 7 years as an associate dentist. From 1996 to 2010 I was a partner with Arlington Comfort Dental.  

    As a General Dentist, with an emphasis on Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry, I am supported by an exceptional staff. Deer Park Dental is dedicated to excellence in the care and comfort of all our patients and we pride ourselves in making your experience a pleasant and most comfortable one. Staying informed on all current and future techniques is very important in order for me to be able to offer you the best treatment options available, and to do so with compassion and understanding in addressing your concerns.

My memberships include:

  • American Dental Association
  • Chicago Dental Society
  • Illinois State Dental Society
  • Illinois Foundation of Dentistry for the Handicapped
  • Elite Study Club – a chapter of the Seattle Study Club with the mission of advancing the concept of total patient case management and team planning

I reside in a neighboring community and enjoy spending time outdoors with my wife and 4 children. My other interests are photography, hockey and baseball.

     I look forward to meeting you and treating your smile!
