Meet the Doctors

Deepak Agarwal, DMD

 

I was born and raised in Chicago. I graduated from Niles North High School in Skokie, IL in 1993. I then attended the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) Honors College. I graduated in 1997 with a Bachelors in Biology and Psychology. The following semester, I started dental school at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville School of Dental Medicine. I graduated in 2001 with my Doctorate in Dental Medicine.

 

Our office has been active in the community, volunteering at the Pacific Asian Community Center health fairs. We are currently involved in the Give Kids a Smile program, visiting three different schools for dental health month. I am also a member of the American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society, and the Chicago Dental Society.

 

My wife and I currently live in the Naperville area with our two sons. I love spending time with my family and of course, try to golf whenever I can. I believe everyone should be happy with their smile. We here at Todays Dental of Plainfield would like to create a beautiful smile for you and your family.

 

Thank you,

Deepak Agarwal, DMD

Raunak Patel, DMD

 

I received my Bachelors in Biology from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2000 and my Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in 2004. I am very committed to staying on the leading edge of dental technology and this enables me to achieve great looking, strong, long-lasting and predictable results for each of my patients.

 

I regularly attend continuing education courses, keeping up with the latest innovations in dentistry.  I am certified in the areas of rotary endo, implant placement and restoration, cosmetic dentistry, and botox.  I am also an active member of the American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society, and Chicago Dental Society.

 

My wife, three boys and I currently live in Willowbrook. I love spending time with my family and enjoy watching and participating in various sports. Our philosophy at Todays Dental of Plainfield is to personally provide comprehensive gentle dental care at the highest level of quality and service. We look forward to providing this type of customized care for you and your entire family.

 

Thank you,

Laurie Gordon, DDS

 

Dr. Laurie Gordon discovered that she wanted to be a dentist when she had braces at age 13. That is when she realized that by changing someone’s smile, a dentist can dramatically change a patient’s life forever. Dr. Gordon became a dentist because she wanted to help people look and feel their best. She graduated from The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 1983. She continued her education at The University of Illinois College of Dentistry in Chicago, where she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1987. She has practiced in Beverly since 1988. Dr. Gordon is proud to continue the family tradition of treating families in the Beverly area and surrounding communities. Although she enjoys all aspects of dentistry, she particularly likes working on children. Along with her father, Dr. Murray Gordon, her brother, Dr. Randall Gordon, and brother-in-law, Dr. Robert Markus, the Gordon family has been providing compassionate and comprehensive care for a combined 120 years!

 

In addition to practicing dentistry, Dr. Gordon spends many hours each year taking continuing education courses. This enables her to bring back to her patients the most current knowledge in the field of dentistry. She is a member of numerous local and national dental organizations, including the American Dental Association, Chicago Dental Society, Illinois State Dental Society, and Academy of General Dentistry, and Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity.

 

She is proud to have been the first female President elected of the Illinois Chapter of Alpha Omega. Presently, she is serving her 7th year as a Member at Large of the Alpha Omega Dental Foundation, which supports various dental projects and programs, in the US, Israel, as well as other countries where there are people in need. In 2008, she received the first-ever Alpha Omega Foundation Meritorious Award for all her fundraising efforts on behalf of the Alpha Omega Dental Foundation.

 

When she’s away from the office, Dr. Gordon enjoys spending time with her husband Dr. David Shaw, daughter, Jenna and son, Adam. She enjoys volunteering at her childrens’ schools, playing golf, attending theater and opera, and cheering on all the Chicago sports teams!

 

Thank you,

Laurie Gordon, DDS

I completed my bachelors degree in Economics from the University of Wisconsin.  I later earned my doctorate degree from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry (Go Blue!).  My passion is working with patients on improving their oral health and achieving their aesthetic goals.

 

I believe that lifelong learning through continuing education courses are important to stay current with the latest advancements in dental technology and dental procedures.  I treat all of my patients like family and strive to provide my patients with a dental experience that exceeds their expectations.

 

My wife and I currently live in Darien with our son and twin daughters. I enjoy spending time with family and golfing as often as I can.  My goal is to educate my patients about their oral health and give them the smile they deserve!
