Learn More About Dr. Feffer

Dr. Jeffrey Feffer graduated from Northwestern University Dental School in 1981 and has been practicing dentistry in the Lincoln Park and Lakeview area for over 35 years. Raised in Southern California, he received an undergraduate degree in Bacteriology and then a Masters degree in Public Health, specializing in infectious disease epidemiology from UCLA.

He has been a respected expert witness and consultant to the legal profession in matters related to alleged dental malpractice and the standard of care in dentistry for over 30 years while being a full-time dentist.

His practice philosophy is to provide thoughtfulness and compassion to his patients while providing options of treatment. Precise and clinically demanding, he is relaxed and accommodating while working.

A longstanding member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Illinois State Dental Society, and the Chicago Dental Society, he has taken numerous courses in esthetic and prosthetic dentistry which allows him to design and place highly artistic and realistic restorations coupled with all types of prosthetic reconstruction.

He highly enjoys working with children, establishing long lasting relationships which allow children to grow up utilizing dental services without fear.

Dr. Feffer believes that the integration of basic healthful principles increases one’s enjoyment of life and gives the best chance for a balanced life. He has been physically active his entire life. An avid runner and tennis player, he has run 5 marathons and numerous shorter races. Fluent in Spanish, he has gone to night school one night a week for the last six years to develop fluency in Italian as well.

At the end of 2011, Dr. Feffer was asked by the Chicago Fire Team Physician to be the Chicago Fire Team Dentist for the upcoming 2012 season.  Appreciative of the ability to combine professional camaraderie with athletics, Dr. Feffer  enthusiastically accepted the position.  In addition to providing emergency dental procedures for the players, he will do his best to be thoughtful and help the players be in optimal dental health prior to the start of the season. Although at present he is not the official team dentist for the Fire, he still provides services for players and coaches.  He is a certified Team Dentist, and has completed the training for certification given by the Academy for Sports Dentistry and is an active member of this society.

Dr. Feffer has three fantastic daughters.

Learn More About Dr. Schoening

As a young child, Eric Schoening decided he wanted to become a dentist.  Through the encouragement of his childhood dentist and nurturing parents, Eric became driven to succeed in school so he could attend dental school.  Coming from a family of mechanical engineers, Eric showed early signs of his mechanical skills when he would frequently disassemble and reassemble common household items simply to see how they functioned.  His father would often have Eric assist on his engineering projects and challenge him to find solutions to various issues.

Eric received his Bachelors of Science from Butler University with a major in Biology and minor in Chemistry.  While studying at Butler, he was active in student government and the dental society.  Dr. Schoening graduated from Indiana University School of Dentistry in 2011.  While a student at IU, Eric was an executive member of the dental fraternity, Delta Sigma Delta.

Immediately after graduation, Dr. Schoening began practicing in Bowling Green, Kentucky.  While practicing in Kentucky, he treated Medicaid patients with diverse and complicated clinical needs.  His experience there taught him how to treat patients of all ages efficiently and comfortably.

In 2012, Dr. Schoening moved back to the Chicagoland area to assist his mentor Dr. Chris Thomas in Oak Park.  Shortly thereafter, he began to practice downtown in the loop at the 25 E. Washington building.

Dr. Schoening takes great pride in patient education.  His treatment methodology for patients is to provide them with the most comfortable and least invasive techniques.  He takes the time to make sure each patient understands each procedure and allows them to ask any questions them may have.  He has found this to be a great asset in his clinical decisions related to their treatment. He has taken multiple courses related to Invisalign orthodontics and treating patients with obstructive sleep apnea using oral appliance therapy.  He is highly involved in continuing his education in all aspects of restorative dentistry.  Dr. Schoening is an active member of the American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society, and Chicago Dental Society.

Drs. Feffer, Schoening, and Ahn have a strong interest in using the highest quality restorative materials and most artistic dental laboratories to achieve the best, most esthetic clinical results.  With their warm and welcoming chairside manners, patients can find a new dental home where they are treated with respect, never rushed into unnecessary treatment, and feel comfortable bringing their family and friends.

Learn More About Dr. Ahn

Dr. Suzie Ahn received her Bachelor’s degree in Biology and subsequently her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree (D.D.S.) from the University of Iowa. While in dental school, she won several awards in the field of prosthodontics and was encouraged by her professors to pursue advanced specialty training in prosthodontics due to her skill and attention to fine details.

Prosthodontists specialize in the restoration and replacement of missing teeth and have seven years of formal training – four years of dental school, and an additional three years of advanced specialty training. Through her training, Dr. Suzie Ahn has become an expert in diagnosis and treatment planning for smile makeovers using veneers, crowns, bridges, implants, and dentures. Her goal is to provide her patients with treatment that is both visually appealing and highly functional so her patients can smile with confidence!

Dr. Ahn’s patients love that she is a great listener and that she spends the time to understand their needs and answer questions! In her own words, she says, “I always want to treat my patients like family, and present the same options and quality of care I would want for myself or for my parents”.

In addition to seeing patients, Dr. Ahn is also actively involved in teaching. She holds a faculty position at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry. She has been involved with teaching courses in implant dentistry, complete dentures, and fixed prosthodontics (crowns, bridges, and veneers).

In her free time, she loves to try new foods and restaurants, traveling, photography, and spending time with her friends and family.
