Meet Dr. Claire Sheehan
Board Certified Pediatric Dentist
Dr. Claire Sheehan was born and raised in the Chicago land area. She attended Illinois Wesleyan University where she received her Bachelors of Science degree in Biology. While there she played on the Women’s Basketball team and during her senior year she was named to the NCAA Division III Coach’s All-America team. Dr. Sheehan then continued her education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. She received the Delta Dental Plan of Illinois Outstanding Dental Student Award and was voted into the Sigma Chapter of Omicron Kappa Upsilon for exemplary scholarship and character. After dental school, Dr. Sheehan completed a one-year General Practice Residency at Advocate Illinois Masonic in Chicago, Illinois. She then worked as a general dentist in the Chicago suburbs for one year before starting her residency in pediatric dentistry at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. She will be graduating in July of 2017.
All our doctors are affiliated with Lurie Children’s hospital, and trained by the Division Head of Dentistry, Dr. Ray Jurado. Our philosophies and treatment objectives are almost identical, yet our behavior management skill sets are unique to each of us. We hope to not only set the standards in pediatric dentistry, but to also exceed them!
