It was during Dr. Hanson’s residency at Northwestern when he and Dr. Steven Koos first met. Dr. Koos at that time was in Dental School and was doing his Oral Surgery rotation and Dr. Hanson was Chief Resident. Dr. Hanson had a profound impact on Dr. Koos by influencing his desire to pursue Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery as a profession and they have maintained their friendship over the years. Both Dr. Hanson and Dr. Koos established independent practices in Chicago and have now decided to merge with one another as partners.

In addition to out-patient, office based Oral Surgery and anesthesia, his areas of expertise include facial trauma, advanced dental implants and bone regeneration procedures.

Pleasantly surprised by post-surgery follow up

It was a pleasure to have straight forward information provided and constant follow up after my surgery. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call from Dr. Steven Koos late at night to make sure I was having a healthy recovery. And the cherry on top of the ice cream was how updated the office was. State of the art equipment that I had no doubt I was in good hands.

Great place and great staff.

Great place and great staff. I was well informed about the entire procedure and the follow up process. I also felt very at ease knowing the doctor called me later in the day and him providing me his number in case anything happens.

Earns my trust for comfort and care

I had two implants, a sinus lift and one other procedure within the last year or so. I can’t speak highly enough of Dr. Koos and his staff. I was well informed about my needs and next steps. And more importantly, all went well with very little discomfort. I’m usually a little skiddish when it comes to dental surgery and any associated pain. ORA Oral Surgery & Implant Studio earns my trust for comfort and care.
