Meet Dr. Eric Eisen

To me, there’s no greater reward than celebrating treatment success with my patients. Having forged an active and trusting partnership with each patient throughout treatment, I’m simply thrilled for them to discover straighter teeth, better bites, and brighter smiles in their first look in the mirror!

~ Dr. Eric J. Eisen


A native Chicagoan, Dr. Eisen earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Biology/Molecular Biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He then obtained his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS), with honors, from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) School of Dentistry.

During dental school, Dr. Eisen’s background and research in molecular biology, genetics and growth and development led him to explore the orthodontics specialty. Remaining at UIC, he completed a rigorous three-year orthodontic residency. In 2002, Dr. Eisen received his Certificate in Orthodontics and Master of Science in Oral Sciences; he worked as an associate in Arlington Heights following residency and established his private practice, Eisen Orthodontics, in Deerfield, in 2008.

In Practice

At Eisen Orthodontics, Dr. Eisen and his team are proud to offer a professional, fun, and comfortable atmosphere, with a few bad dad jokes tossed in! As much as the practice is known for delivering exceptional results – those beautifully healthy and confident smiles – it is also known for providing efficient and timely treatment with constant communication and attention to detail.

Beyond the Practice

When not straightening teeth to transform smiles and oral health, Dr. Eisen is most often found with his family and resides in the northern suburbs with his wife and two sons. The family enjoys the outdoors and is always up for an adventure. Dr. Eisen especially likes golfing, fly fishing, and occasionally shows his wild side by racing cars!
