Dr. Rich Guerra DDS

rich-guerra-newI was born in Chicago and grew up in the Historic Pullman community. For High school I attended Thornwood High school where I played baseball and excelled as a student. I am proud to be an Illini as I received my undergraduate education at The University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana.

I attended The University of Illinois at Chicago for my dental education and graduated in 2008. Shortly thereafter I began investigating implant dentistry and on the advice of several specialists placed my first implant on my father in 2009. I admire his courage for being my first implant patient. I worked to master the placement and restoration of implants and begin taking courses involving implant dentistry along with making a big investment in instruments and supplies pertaining to implants. I will be the first to admit I had zero takers when I offered my implants at $1,700. I quickly realized that at $500 I can place implants at a profit and gain valuable experience. 2 years later, thousands of implants later and I have not changed my price. Visit our office and I can show you proof of my hundreds of implants via my implant log Binder. Be certain that whomever you choose to place your implant has EXPERIENCE as I worked for a dentist who charged $1800 for an implant and had placed only six . Courses teach only so much and after you have taken several the information is redundant.

In my spare time I am an avid 12 inch softball player for the Baseknocks. I pitch and can easily be distinguished by my catchers mask. I also snowboard, surf the ocean when I get the opportunity. I am also an avid fisherman, though unfortunately do not get the opportunity to fish often these days. I am also a pet lover and provide a great home to the cat Eddy.

Thanks to Susan Heatter DVM, Best veterinarian out there for helping save Eddy. 2 Days after he came home from the shelter, the ugliest eye infection ever seen as confirmed numerous specialists took over. With Susan’s help he overcame the infection and lives a normal happy life now. It was quite scary to have a cat sneeze blood on me I have to admit.
