Meet the Doctors
Proudly Serving the Community for Over 10 years
Isaac Qureshi, MPH, DDS
Dr. Qureshi began his higher education at the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign before obtaining his master’s degree in public health at Benedictine University. He then went on to receive his dental degree at the University of Illinois–Chicago. He has engaged in extensive continuing education ever since, most recently in the areas of implant dentistry, full mouth rehabilitation, and esthetic dentistry. His personal goal is to treat the health of each patient while helping them maintain full function for chewing and eating, all while looking great.
Dr. Qureshi married Saima in 2017 and they have two beautiful children, Jasmine and Zane. His mother Maria also works at our front desk. Dr. Qureshi’s biggest enjoyment is learning. He spends his free time taking in as much information and knowledge as he can on a wide array of topics and subjects. He is also (unfortunately) a big supporter of Chicago sports teams, mainly following the Bulls and Bears. He also enjoys working out and playing basketball when he has time.
Shazeen Pardesi, DDS,
Dr. Pardesi comes from a family committed to providing the highest quality of dental care. Both her father and uncle are dentists, and her brother is in his last year of dental school. She started her dental career as an assistant for her uncle in Oregon, IL and has never looked back. Her family has passed on their passion for their patients and the dental profession to her and continues to serve as mentors in the field.
Dr. Pardesi graduated from Marquette University, where she completed her undergraduate degree in biological sciences and her graduate degree in dental surgery. In addition, she spent a year in advanced training at Jacobi Medical Center in NYC focused on restorative dentistry, oral surgery, and management of facial and dental trauma. She then went on to complete over 500 hours of continuing education to achieve her Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry and completed the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine Mastery program to achieve status as a Diplomate. She makes it a priority to further her knowledge and stay up to date with the latest advances every year by completing continuing education courses with some of the top minds in the field. She is passionate about patient education and involving patients in their healthcare decisions, and takes time to talk to each patient to understand their goals before deciding together on a course of treatment. She believes in comprehensive, coordinated care – a healthy mouth is the reflection of a healthy body and, often, dental disease is related to systemic imbalance.
In her free time, Dr. Pardesi loves to cook, to travel, and to read. She lives with her husband in downtown Chicago and enjoys trying new restaurants and exploring the city.
