While growing up as a young child Dr. Bannon was not fond of “going to see the dentist”. It was this dislike that set his ambition to becoming a dentist who would provide comfortable care dentistry. He sat up practice as a general dentist in 1978 in Downer Grove and remains in the very same location today.
Dr. Bannon has a passion for dentistry and learning as well as educating. He maintains membership in the following professional organizations: American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society , Academy of General Dentistry , Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Academy of Laser Dentistry, International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology & International Association for Orthodontics.
This involvement allows him to continue to strive for excellence in a variety of dental areas. He frequently spends weekends traveling to enhance his knowledge and skill base so that he can serve his patients at the highest level. His hours of continuing education range between 150 to 250 hours.
His practice has been largely influenced by his own experience and his desire to share those insights with his patients and their family. He believes “the little things can make the big difference”. He plans to continue serving his patients as long as God permits.
In his spare time he enjoys his children, his dental team, and his many loyal patients. Occasionally a little skiing, cooking, yoga, Pilates, fishing, music, and even a little dancing sneaking into the picture.
