Dr. Brandon Cesario (DMD)
Dr. Brandon Cesario also known as Dr. Brandon, grew up in Naperville, Illinois and comes from a family of dentists. Both his great grandfather and grandfather were dentists in the Chicagoland area and have impacted his decision to become a dentist today. Obtaining his Bachelor of
Biological Science at Indiana Wesleyan University, he then went to pursue his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Southern Illinois University in Alton, Illinois.
While in dental school, he realized his favorite part of dentistry was treating children. He decided pediatric dentistry was his true passion. After dental school he went on to complete two additional years of specialty pediatric dental training at NYU Langone Hospital on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Dr. Brandon is very passionate about providing dental care to children and patients with special needs.
Creating a positive atmosphere while maintaining optimal oral health is one of his top priorities.

sushi and trying new cuisine. He is a big advocate for physical fitness, and enjoys working out regularly and has participated in multiple triathlons. He
looks forward to working with the smallest smiles in your family.
Dr. Maria Javier (DDS)
Dr. Maria Javier also known as Dr. Maria, was born and raised in the Southside of Chicagos Back of the Yards neighborhood. She comes from a family of 6, being the 2nd oldest in line; because of this, interacting with children is like second nature for her. She understands what it takes to handle different personality needs. Every child is different, but she believes every one of them deserves the care and attention that a pediatric dentist can help provide.
She encourages all parents to bring their children to see a pediatric dentist starting at age 1, and continually every six months until the child feels confident to graduate and see a hygienist or general dentist. She welcomes all who feel passionate about their child’s overall dental health, as well as those who have difficulty finding a dentist for children with special needs.
Dr. Mary Bailey (DMD)
Dr. Bailey began her practice with us in Chicago in 2016. She continues to practice general dentistry with a passion for patient education and restorations that are both durable and esthetic.
