We very strongly believe in the value of exceptional cosmetic and family dentistry for our patients. A lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles – without gum disease or missing teeth – is priceless, and it’s a ticket to greater self-confidence and success in life.

Dr. Minalt graduated from the University Of Illinois College Of Dentistry after attending Loyola University for his undergraduate studies.  He has been practicing dentistry since 1988.  He completed advanced training in dental implant treatment at the Medical College of Georgia and at Detroit Mercy Dental School studying under world class teachers such as Paul Mentag, Carl Misch, Tim Kosinski, Ed Mills, and O’ Hilt Tatum. He has attended hundreds of hours of implant continuing education with some of the greats in the field like Maurice Salama and Palo Malo. Dr. Minalt even developed a system for sharpening dental implant drills that was later sold to another vendor.

Dr. Minalt is passionate about implant dentistry and strives to treat each case individually and not make each case fit a one sized template corporate approach.

Dr. Minalt has a Fellowship from the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, the premier credentialing and education provider in the field of dental Implants. Dr. Minalt also completed a hospital-based general anesthesia residency at Illinois Masonic Medical Center.  Dr. Minalt is a leader in the dental field of IV Sedation and is a Fellow of the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology and a Diplomat of the National Dental Board of Anesthesia.  Dr. Minalt is a Past President of Illinois State Dental Anesthesia Society and has presented lectures on Dental Anesthesia to local and state groups. He is also a member of the American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society, Chicago Dental Society, Academy of Conscious Sedation, and American Academy of Implant Dentistry.

“I have over 25 years of experience in all types of dental implant placement and restoration and have an extremely high rate of success, even in the most difficult cases.  Dental implants are not a ‘one size fits all’ corporate dentistry procedure.  They require experience, training, understanding and compassion for each patient’s unique situation. I strongly recommend anyone considering dental implants to research the dentist’s experience, credentials, and their ability to perform the procedure.  This will make for a positive experience and outcome that will last for many, many years.”

When not in the office, Dr. Minalt enjoys spending time outdoors, golfing, fishing, cycling, and fixing things around his home.

Registered Dental Hygienist


Diana has been a dedicated hygienist since 1986 when she graduated in the top part of her class at Harper College.  She has been passionate about her career ever since and has received advanced training in local anesthesia, local chemotherapy application, laser dentistry and has attended more than her share of dental implant continuing education.

As a member of a comprehensive dental implant team for over 15 years Diana has gained the knowledge and insight to help her patients through complex implant treatment and assist in long term maintenance.  Diana’s attention to details makes her perfect for dental hygiene.   With understanding and compassion she treats patients from a simple cleaning through non surgical periodontal disease treatment.  Diana takes her time to get to know and understand her patients.  Diana makes sure the patients understand the suggestions she makes to them to help in their own oral health care.   Diana has had patients for a lifetime and it’s like watching family come over the way she interacts with them.  Kind and low key, but a tremendous asset to the practice and a blessing to all of the patients that she treats.

Diana is a mother of two daughters and enjoys family time, cooking and assisting in community service.

Dental Assistant


Jackie grew up on the North side of Chicago. She began working in the dental field thirty-one years ago. She currently resides in the northwest suburbs with her husband and two children. Jackie is very involved with her children, volunteering at their schools on various committees and in scouting. Jackie and her family participate in Civil War Reenactments and the Honor Flight program for World War II Veterans. When she is not cheering her children on in their various sports, you can find her enjoying outdoor activities like hiking, camping, sledding and swimming.

Jackie is youngest of three children. This spot in her family made Jackie very good at listening and taking directions, but also determined. These qualities in Jackie make her a very kind and compassionate person, as well as a great dental assistant.
