Welcome to Our Practice


Loree S. Nicholas, D.D.S.

Dr. Nicholas was born and raised in Chicago. Upon graduating from high school she attended Wright Jr. College for 2 years and continued her education by completing a one year certification course in dental assisting at the University of Illinois, College of Dentistry. Having worked full time as a dental assistant for 4 years for a large and very successful practice in Skokie IL, she realized her passion. In 1982, Dr. Nicholas returned to school full time to complete her undergraduate studies at Loyola University while still maintaining part time assisting hours in Skokie. On a personal note, Dr. Nicholas would like to thank Dr.Gene Mendelson for being her mentor and inspiration. She completed her dental degree and graduated from Northwestern University Dental School in April 1988.

Dr. Nicholas and her staff stay current by regularly attending continuing education classes and hands on utilization courses so you can feel confident of their commitment to learning and staying up to date. She is a member of the American Dental Association, Chicago Dental Society, Illinois State Dental Society, Holistic Dental Association and the Glen Ellyn Chamber of Commerce. She has taught dental health care and prevention to the grade schools in her community and loves letting the children be helpers in her own practice setting. “The children really love donning on the gloves and mask and diving right in to help with their brother, sister or even their parents appointments. They are truly fascinated by the whole experience and they tell me how much fun they’ve had. I can’t tell you how many parents have told me that their kids can’t wait until their next check ups. How cool is that!”

Dr. Nicholas experienced her first mission trip in May 2011 to Panama. " It was one of the best encounters I have ever experienced. Our team of 13 was amazing and providing treatment to an area in such need was such a rewarding feeling and a wonderful process. I am very enthusiastic to continue the work. I am committed to help where I can." A special thank you to Rich and Jane Dunn, team leaders from the United Methodist Church in Glen Ellyn.

Having served in the field of dentistry for over 39 years Dr. Nicholas feels she knows how to customize each patients visit. Her focus lies on prevention, education and patient interaction while maintaining optimum oral health and improving your smile. Whether you are 1 or 101, whether you experience fear or are fearless, whether you are overcome with anxiety and look forward to relaxing at your next appointment she makes it her mission to watching you go home happy.

Dr. Nicholas is married and has 2 daughters. In her off time, she is most at peace being outside. Her love of the outdoors is apparent through her hiking, kayaking, golf, photography, travel and particularly her bike riding. Her other passions include upcycle decorating, cooking and bartending, making the most of her health club membership, staying connected with family and friends and is a dedicated recycler.
