Oak Lawn Dental -- Excellence in Dentistry
About Us

Oak Lawn Dental Professional Organization was founded in 2009 by Kenneth Yerkes, D.D.S. with the vision of creating a caring dental practice in which every patient is treated as family. We wish to invite all patients to our practice, but we hope to attract patients who are looking for excellent dentistry, service, and value.  Our staff at Oak Lawn Dental goes through a rigorous selection process in order to find compassionate, caring, and passionate professional individuals to serve you, your family, and friends. 

Our staff at Oak Lawn Dental are highly and continually trained and educated in the field of dentistry. Dr. Yerkes, besides having a Bachelors Degree in Science, a Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree, also has a Masters of Education Degree. He has made use of all of his education by sharing his knowledge of dentistry with both patients and staff.  Dr. Yerkes is compassionate and cares a great deal about his patients. He spends a great deal of time and energy accommodating his patients. He continues to serve each and every patient to the best of his abilities.

Dr. Yerkes is extremely passionate when it comes to sharing his knowledge with his patients and staff. Graduating in 1982 from Loyola Dental School, arguably one of the best dental schools of its time, Dr. Yerkes has challenged himself to learn more and more about dentistry by attending numerous continuing dental education courses as well as being involved in a number of dental study clubs. Dr. Yerkes continually challenges himself to be on the cutting edge of integrating effective and proven dental technology into his practices and into our professional organization.

Dr. Yerkes takes the time to educate our patients so that they are in a better position to make the best decision for themselves. Our Oak Lawn Dental Associates share a similar philosophy of educating and serving our patients to the best of our abilities every day. We  strive to continually learn from our past experiences as well as challenge ourselves to learn and discern from what today's dentistry is teaching us for the ultimate well-being and benefit of our patients.

Dr. Yerkes is also trying to learn Spanish from serveral members of our staff who fluently read, speak, and translate Spanish extremely well. Dr. Yerkes is of Lithuanain and Polish decent, and tries to remember some of the Lithuanian and Polish that he has been taught over the years.

A few of our staff can read, speak, and translate Spanish fluently. We intentionally look for staff that not only know Spanish, but know how to work hard, continually strive to learn, and possess a willingness to accommodate and serve our patients to the best of their abilities. 

It is our goal to meet and exceed our patient's needs and desires and to serve you with the best cosmetic dentistry has to offer.
