Providing the most advanced dental care in a comfortable and pleasant atmosphere are main priorities for Dr. Cardona. In her own words “Smiles open doors and opportunities, they have a great impact in the way people perceive us, and even in the way we perceive ourselves. I feel fortunate and it makes me very happy to be able to educate and provide the necessary treatments so that my patients can smile freely and confidently!”
When not helping people achieve or maintain a healthy, functional and beautiful smile, Dr. Cardona enjoys running along the Chicago lakefront, swimming and dancing.
