Giana Paterno, D.M.D.

I grew up in Elmwood Park, Illinois and received my bachelor’s degree in biology from Indiana University. I went on to earn my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago.  While in dental school, I was a two-time recipient of Dr. Cascio award for clinical excellence and participated in several community outreach programs. I volunteered at Northwest Community Healthcare mobile dental clinic servicing residents of Elk Grove, Palatine, Wheeling, and Schaumburg.

I am an active member of the American Dental Association, Chicago Dental Society, Academy of General Dentist, and the Arcolian Society.  I regularly attend meetings and continuing education seminars to stay up to date with the latest advancements in the dental field and am a certified Invisalign provider.

I am very passionate about dentistry and believe in patient education so that my patients can make informed decisions when it comes to their health care. I enjoy being a general dentist because I am able to treat an entire family, from pediatrics to geriatrics and everything in between.  It is important to me that all patients feel comfortable throughout their dental treatments.

When I am not practicing dentistry I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, and being active. I love reading and am always looking for new book recommendations.

I am excited to become part of your community and continue providing you with excellent dental care.

Danielle Kerger, D.D.S.

I was raised in Aurora, Illinois and attended the University of Illinois and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology. Upon graduation, I moved to Omaha, Nebraska to study at Creighton University School of Medicine where I earned a Master’s in Biomedical Sciences. Researching was an amazing experience, and I loved Creighton so much that I decided to stay there to attend Creighton University School of Dentistry. I had a wonderful experience at the dental school, serving as a student teacher in prosthodontics, receiving numerous scholarships, the Pediatric Award of Excellence, and graduating with honors.

I am a member of the Chicago Dental Society, the Illinois State Dental Society, and the American Dental Association. I have also received Invisalign certification and have extensive experience with digital dentistry.

I reside in Wheaton with my husband and three beautiful daughters. We love spending time together as a family, and exploring all of the things that Chicagoland has to offer!

I look forward to meeting you and providing you with excellent dental care.
