Danielle Duarte completed her undergraduate training at the University of Notre Dame, majoring in Pre-Professional Studies and Spanish. After 4 years of dental school, Danielle earned her DDS degree from Marquette University School of Dentistry in Milwaukee, WI. Following dental school, Dr. Duarte then completed a one-year post-doctoral General Practice Residency at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where she learned more advanced dental techniques, including implant dentistry, restoration, and esthetics, and upon graduation earned the distinction of being named top resident of her class. During residency, Dr. Duarte treated a variety of patients with complex medical conditions, including head and neck cancer, facial trauma and complicated oral surgery cases, and performed full dental rehabilitations in the operating room for special needs children as well as adults with extensive medical histories.
Volunteering has been an important part of Dr. Duarte’s personal life. While attending Notre Dame, she found great enjoyment in tutoring grade-school children and teaching English to Spanish-speaking adults. In the last several years, Dr. Duarte has volunteered with medical volunteer programs such as Give Kids A Smile, Mission of Mercy, Remote Area Medical, and Global Medical Brigades, all of which provide dental care in underserved areas both within the US and internationally. She plans to continue her dental volunteerism for years to come.
On a personal note, Dr. Duarte was raised in the western suburbs of Chicago and comes from a medical family. She is a newlywed who now lives in Chicago with her husband Ade, who is also a dentist. In her free time, she enjoys baking, reading, and exercise, including weight-training and boxing. She is also a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), Illinois State Dental Society (ISDS), and Chicago Dental Society (CDS).
“I believe in treating my patients holistically, incorporating their dental history with all aspects of their medical history to develop a patient-focused comprehensive treatment plan for their dental and oral healthcare needs.”
