Dr. Nakfoor’s goal is to create the best and brightest smiles in the Chicagoland area!
Dr. Bryan Nakfoor grew up in a family where having a great smile was a top priority. As a teenager, he spent summers and a few hours each week working in his father’s orthodontic practice. It was in this setting that he discovered his natural aptitude for working with his hands, and he became fluent in the language of teeth!
Dr. Nakfoor attended the University of Michigan and earned an undergraduate degree in engineering. He then graduated with honors at the top of his class from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Society. He went on to earn his M.S. at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in the Department of Orthodontics. In 2008, Dr. Nakfoor earned the status of Diplomate from the American Board of Orthodontics and renewed his certification in 2020. It is a distinction attained by only 33% of orthodontists in the United States.
When he’s not perfecting smiles, Dr. Nakfoor enjoys spending time with his wife, Jennifer and two children, Morgan and Grant, in their home in Inverness, IL.
