Patient, gentle and attentive, Dr. Amy Mueller enjoys all aspects of dentistry and providing care to all members of the family, especially children.

Dr. Armand DiBenedetto

DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery)

Dr. Armand DiBenedetto, a graduate of the University of Illinois College of Dentistry, was born and raised in Oak Park, Illinois. In the time he has been associated with our practice, he has impressed us with his calm, caring demeanor and his clinical skills.

“I decided to become a dentist on the recommendation of my orthodontist, who suggested it initially. At the time I was working in restaurants as a server, but felt a calling to do something more impactful and challenging with my life. So I embarked on the long journey of education, and gratefully was accepted into dental school.

I enjoy most dental procedures, but my favorites are crowns and dental implants. In dental school I was fascinated by dental implants, because we learned about the incredible sophistication of the human immune system, and the fact that the body integrates dental implants is amazing.
What is gratifying about being a dentist is being able to provide relief from some of the worst pain most people ever experience.

I spend most of my spare time with my family, but enjoy a good story, hiking out in nature, live music, and recently have taken up target shooting. I am constantly learning new and interesting things (thanks YouTube university).

I want patients to know that I spent several years working in FQHCs (government sponsored clinics) mostly doing oral surgery (extracting teeth). Also I recently completed the AAID Maxicourse in dental implants, and have been placing dental implants for several years. I will help them accomplish their goals for their smile, and try to treat everyone as I would like to be treated.”
