Paul Chaiken, DDS

dr chaikenDr. Paul Chaiken has been practicing dentistry for more than 30 years and loves the opportunity to help his patients by making a positive change in their health. He believes that dentistry is about much more than teeth. Science proves that the mouth affects the entire body, making dentistry intrinsic to health. But dentistry is also about improving smiles, which can be a vital aspect of confidence and self-esteem. Dentistry balances these two ideas, making it truly a practice of science and art.

Dr. Chaiken is here to partner with his patients in obtaining their desired level of health. He facilitates through careful listening, evaluations, and interactive discussions so he can understand their expectations and desires, offering several options for treatment so that they can make an informed decision about which option is best for them. He then provides treatment in a comfortable, relaxed environment using the most current evidence based research and proven therapies, supported by a team of expert clinical staff, collaborating specialists, and world class laboratory technicians.


Dr. Chaiken is a graduate of Indiana University in Bloomington and received his dental degree from Loyola University School of Dentistry in Chicago. He earned fellowship awards from the American College of Dentists and the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Chaiken also is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Dental Surgery at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and is on the Medical Staff of Northwestern Memorial Hospital. He is a former visiting faculty of Spear Education at the Scottsdale Center of Dentistry.

Dr. Chaiken is a clinical evaluator for the American Dental Association in Chicago and is a consultant to The Dental Advisor in Ann Arbor Michigan. He has lectured at the Chicago Dental Society, Northwestern Memorial Hospital Grand Rounds, and the Chicago Academy of Interdisciplinary Dentofacial Therapy.

Dr. Chaiken is a published author / medical consultant to the American Medical Association in their three books: AMA Complete Guide to Women’s Health, AMA Complete Guide to Men’s Health, and AMA Complete Guide to Your Children’s Health.
