Meet Our Doctor
Phillip Moorad, DDS
Over the past two decades, I have learned to be proficient in providing gentle dental practices in all aspects of family dentistry. I specialize in creating beautiful smiles with cutting-edge cosmetic dentistry. I understand that in looking for a Northshore dentist, you want a dentist who will listen to precisely what you would like to accomplish with your cosmetic dental procedure while still maintaining the function and health of your dentition.
In 1992, I graduated from Oklahoma State University with a bachelor’s degree in zoology. I stayed in the area and went on to receive my Doctorate of Dental Surgery with honors from Oklahoma University College of Dentistry in 1996.
After graduating from dental school, I moved to sunny Arizona, where I practiced as an associate before deciding to open my own unique green dental practice in 2003. After opening Aesthetic Dental Health in Avondale, I watched it grow and turn into a one-of-a-kind, eco-friendly dental practice. In 2011, I received the Gold Certification from the Eco-Dentistry Association. Only a handful of all dentists in the U.S. have achieved this special distinction.
I am Invisalign® and dental laser certified, and have completed many hours of training and mini-residencies in implant restorations as well. I received a fellowship award in the spring of 2014 from the Academy of General Dentistry.
I enjoy learning the most modern dental procedures by completing more than 700 hours of continuing dental education. I am a graduate of prestigious postgraduate dental learning institutions: the Kois Institute and the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Learning.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending most of my free time with my incredible son. I am an avid biker, novice at yoga, and have relished falling in love with this great city.
I hold membership in the following organizations:
- American Dental Association
- Illinois State Dental Society
- Chicago Dental Society
- Academy of General Dentistry
We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.
Meet Our Team
Sha’myah, Dental Assistant
I began working at North Dental in 2015. As I became involved with pastoral care at church, I realized my passion is helping people. That’s when I decided to go to school for dental assisting. My favorite part of the job is building relationships with the patients and being able to take their minds off what they initially came in for. I love seeing the smile on their faces when we finish with the procedure knowing they’re truly satisfied with the work done.
Although we all have our specific job duties, I love the fact that we are all able to help each other out when needed. We are like a family and it makes coming to work enjoyable. The Doctor is extremely knowledgeable and I love how he not only explains things to the patients but he explains things to us as well. Outside of work I enjoy reading books of all genres, going to the movies, writing, and singing.
