Meet Our Doctor

DARREN C. PAKRAVAN, DDS, MS

Every day my patients teach me something new about the world and show me another side of life. Seeing their joy as they progress through orthodontic treatment and they smile wider and more often puts a big smile on my face, too. I'm so lucky to have a job that lets me make a positive difference every day!

I love being able to work with new and interesting people each day and develop relationships while helping my patients gain confidence from their beautiful smiles. My patients are a wonderfully diverse group of people. Being able to give them splendid smiles and share in their happiness when completing treatment is the best part of my job.

EDUCATION

I attended Northwestern University for my undergraduate education, earning my Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Science and continued on to the University of Illinois at Chicago, graduating with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. After graduating from dental school in 2004, I completed a year of hospital dentistry at Evanston Northwestern Healthcare, before starting my three-year orthodontic residency at the University of Illinois in Chicago. I've been in private practice as well as teaching orthodontics at my alma mater part-time since 2008.

EXPERIENCE

I worked as an orthodontist in a group dental practice setting before opening Windy City Orthodontics, seeing patients of all ages and backgrounds and helping them achieve the smiles they dream of. I am also a clinical instructor in the Department of Orthodontics at the University of Illinois in Chicago where I lecture and supervise the residents in the orthodontic clinic and attend weekly seminars on various topics. I've lectured to students, residents, and faculty at the UIC College of Dentistry as well as the Chicago Odontographic Society on integrating orthodontic treatment with general dental care, lasers in orthodontics, orthodontic appliance design, and the biomechanics of orthodontic tooth movement. Being involved with teaching lets me share the insights I've gained with tomorrow's orthodontists and stay involved and up-to-date in a field that's constantly evolving.

OUTSIDE THE OFFICE

I am a native of the greater Chicago area and am proud to serve this wonderful community. When I’m not practicing orthodontics I enjoy listening to live music, reading both fiction and nonfiction, trying new restaurants, camping, and snowboarding. I also ride motorcycles and motor-scooters and attend several scooter rallies across the country each year.
