Specialists Practicing Excellence in Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontic Care

The Doctors of Associated Dental Specialists of Long Grove are committed to helping infants, children, teens and all young people with every kind of individual need achieve optimal oral health. From seeing all stages of oral-facial development, to restorative, preventive, and orthodontic treatments, we accommodate the oral care needs of both children and special needs adults.

Our Staff Appointments at the leading medical institutions in the region allows us to treat patients with all special medical conditions safely and comfortably. As Board Certified specialists both Dr. Cannon and Tylka maintain hospital privileges at Ann and Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital and Dr. Tylka at Loyola University’s Foster McGaw hospital for those patients requiring hospital-based dentistry.

All three dentists are Board Certified by state and national Specialty Boards and are members of their specialty organizations. A testament to their wonderful care can be found in the words of the many patients and families they have worked with over the years in the postings on social media (check out the Yelp, Google and Facebook reviews!). A professional 24/7 answering service means being able to leave a message or seek emergency care from one of the doctors.

What Our Patients Have to Say

I am so thankful for this dental office! Dr Cannon is a fabulous pediatric dentist who makes appointments as pleasant as possible for little children. His humorous & calm approach helped my daughter be accepting of a dental exam at age 3. Dr. Cannon is also an accomplished professional who is involved in research and speaks/presents all over the world. You can be confident that your child is receiving the best, most current, & well-researched care. Despite his many roles & busy schedule, we are always seen on time and never feel rushed. The staff & hygienists at this office are equally welcoming & wonderful! Email & text message appointment confirmation options help greatly. Fees & insurance coverage are clearly detailed.

I have three boys and have been bringing them here for the last 4 years. Prior to coming to Dr. Cannon, my oldest son had many cavities every time he went to the dentist. Since we have had Dr. Cannon work on him he has been cavity free. He really cares for his patients with a goal on long term care.
