Dr. Chowdhury received his dental degree from the Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine where he continued and completed his residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry and Implant Fellowship. ​​
Dr. Chowdhury specializes in dental implants. His training includes a Dental University based implant fellowship program which was specific to dental implants only. He is one of the very few graduates of this type of program worldwide. He has also developed an expertise in advanced dentistry which has been the focus of his continuing education efforts.

After finishing his residency and private practice in Saint Louis, MO, Dr. Chowdhury  decided to make his home here in Chicago.  A former faculty and Clinical Professor at Southern Illinois University, School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Chowdhury continues to help serve as a mentor and teaches at Midwestern University Dental School as a clinical instructor.

He is also an esteemed Fellow of the International congress of Oral Implantology,  an Associate Fellow of the American Academy of Implant dentistry and Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry. ​

“I believe in full patient-oriented dental care treated with patient empowered decisions.  Patient empowerment does not only encompass the ability of the patient to make decisions on their own dental care, it also encompasses their education on the topic.  Patient dental education is essential in treating patients.
Educating patients on their own dental concerns and needs can lead to better results and help the overall outcome of care.  Giving patients the autonomy to choose what treatment plan best fits their needs and financial limitations lessens the risk of unforeseen and unplanned circumstances.”
