Dr. Ivan has been in practice over 30 years with an emphasis on cosmetic and rehabilitation dentistry in a multi-specialty group practice in Elmhurst, Illinois. Patients needing complex, comprehensive or multi-disciplinary rehabilitation dentistry, or the advanced skills and cosmetic experience of a cosmetic dentist would benefit from his training. With over 4000 hours of continuing education, Dr. Ivan is committed to life-long learning. He is a certified Toastmaster and professional speaker, has spoken publicly and professionally often and has written numerous articles for professional and lay journals and newspapers. He has also contributed on local radio and T.V. regarding a variety of clinical and practice management topics. He is a graduate of several practice management programs, and has obtained education in business as well as training in marketing and communication.
While he has a passion for dentistry and often “photoshoots” his “Smile Makeover” patients, family comes first, and he enjoys his daughters’ many achievements after graduating Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. He is currently serving his sixth year on Vanderbilt’s Parent & Teacher board for the past 6 years. In his spare time, Dr. Ivan has recently discovered K1 racing and the incredibly challenging, yet relaxing, hobby of golf and regularly shoots in the low to mid 80’s!

I highly recommend anyone seeking the best dental care to see Dr. Valcarenghi.
Dr Ivan Valcarenghi is one of the most skilled and educated Dentists in the Chicago area. I have had the pleasure to work with him on complex cases that presented in my office, and his knowledge and expertise were invaluable in bringing a successful result to these cases.
