“Your smile is your best accessory, wear it well.”

Dr. Khan loves to make people smile and she believes that helping others have a better experience when “going to the dentist” is just as important as providing the treatment that fits their needs. Seeing patients leave after their appointment happy and smiling inspires her to be the best!
Dr. Khan grew up in Lake Bluff and attended both Lake Forest Country Day School and Lake Forest High School. She then continued her undergraduate education at the University of Chicago and completed her Doctorate of Dental Surgery at Northwestern University Dental School.
Dr. Khan had the opportunity over the past two decades to work in private practices and community health centers.
