Meet Dr. Dani
Dr. Miriam Levitan Dani, DDS is a board certified general dentist raised in Evanston, IL and currently residing in Wilmette, IL. Dr. Dani received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Illinois in Chicago. She has completed all phases of the prestigious post graduate Dawson Center for Advanced Dental Education.
Dr. Dani completed a General Practice Residency program at Rush Presbyterian St. Luke’s Medical Center. Her training included care of the medically compromised, advanced surgical cases with oncologists, anesthesiology, plastic surgery, ear nose and throat surgery. Training also included one on one studies and practice with all of the individual dental specialties: pediatrics, orthodontics, oral surgery, periodontics and implantology, endodontics and prosthodontics.
Dr. Dani values consistent continuing education in all areas relative to her performance in the office. She also completed a Certificate Executive MBA program at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management. She is a member of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons in Canada. Dr. Dani participates and volunteers in many international and national dental services throughout the world and United States. She has been solicited by the U.S. military to provide dental screenings for those being deployed since 2009.
Dr. Dani has a bachelors of Science in Nutritional and Biochemical Science from the University of Illinois (Champagne-Urbana). She grew up being strongly influenced by holistic health and by her family, including physicians that worked in the World Health Organization (WHO). The quality of dental materials and choice of procedures is very important when selecting for each patient. Dr. Dani believes in a holistic approach to dentistry that requires an understanding each patient’s life style, medical history and goals related to their dental care. Ultimately, this results in a positive patient experience and consistently positive outcomes. Often a patient visits their dentist more frequently that their primary physician, so we play a key role in caring and advising for their total health.
Dr. Dani enjoys living a healthy and active lifestyle. She practices yoga daily and enjoys paddle and tennis. Having summitted Kilimanjaro three times, Dr. Dani is an avid mountaineer who also loves skiing, snowshoeing and possesses a deep affinity for cooking.
