Dawn Diehnelt, D.D.S.


Dr. Dawn Diehnelt has enjoyed working as a dentist for more than 20 years. Although a native Midwesterner, she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) from the University of Washington in Seattle, and practiced dentistry in California and overseas before choosing to settle in the Chicago area.

Dr. D, as she is affectionately called by her patients, completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Iowa in Japanese and spent a few years in Japan studying its language and culture. She also earned Master’s degrees in both International Affairs and Economics. Results of her studies and dental research were published here and abroad.

Dr. Diehnelt is a member of the North American Association of Facial Orthotropics (NAAFO) and is a staunch supporter of the Foundation for Airway Health.

Your Comfort is Important to us

At our office, we have created a comfortable environment in which you can feel confident about the dental care you receive

I appreciate that Dr. Dienhelt listens to both me and my daughter. She is very good about collaborating with other health care providers, and is always open to learning something new.

I am very grateful for a dentist who is willing to incorporate nonconventional methods to achieve overall results and health benefits. We have been seeing Dr. D to straighten our daughter’s teeth and promote facial development naturally without braces, and we are seeing amazing results so far.

My kid feels very comfortable going there and the experience is so “playful” in his eyes that he has nothing to worry when he visits the dentist.
