Grand Dental Group is pleased to announce that Dr. Victor Gonzalez will be joining our group. Dr. Gonzalez is a board certified pediatric dentist, specializing in the treatment and needs of children and young adult patients. Our offices are proud to share with our patients and dental family a bit more about who Dr. Gonzalez is, along with his extensive and impressive credentials.
Dr. Gonzalez received his dental degree from the University of San Carlos in Guatemala where he was recipient of the “Top Student in Pediatric Dentistry” award and was honored with a “Rotary Foundation Educational Award” for outstanding student in Central America.
He attended University of Illinois at the Medical Center in Chicago where he obtained a Certificate of Pediatric Dentistry and a Master of Science academic degree.

He also served as Clinic Director of the Undergraduate Pediatric Dentistry Clinic.
Dr. Gonzalez recently retired from Midwestern University where he had an appointment of Assistant Professor, served as Clinic Supervisor and Supervisor of the Specialty Suites.
Dr. Gonzalez is certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and in additional to his extensive years in higher education, he has been in active practice for over 30 years. He regularly attends conferences and seminars that focus on the latest developments in pediatric dentistry and orthodontics, providing enormous benefits to his young patients.
Although all of our Grand Dental Group general dentists treat pediatric patients at all of our locations, it is a significant benefit to have a pediatric specialist on staff. Pediatric dentists receive additional training and education, above and beyond that of undergraduate degrees and general dental school programs. They are highly skilled in the specific medical, dental, emotional, and physical concerns that face children and young adults. Pedodontists often treat patients with special needs and physical, mental or emotional limitations or conditions. In addition, pediatric dentists are familiar and very comfortable in communicating with their patients’ parents and guardians.
Dr. Gonzalez understands the family dynamics of his patients and their loved ones. He aims to serve your family with the highest level of service with the quality of care you deserve. Dr. Gonzalez’ philosophy is to establish early, attainable, and reasonable goals with parents and their child which will promote oral health throughout childhood and beyond. In addition to enjoying his patients and practice, Dr. Gonzalez appreciates history and travel.
Dr. Victor Gonzalez is welcoming new patients and current patients at our Grand Dental – Aurora and Grand Dental – Sycamore locations. Families are welcome and encouraged to call our office and schedule a time to meet Dr. Gonzalez and his competent staff. Our Grand Dental Group family could not be more thrilled to welcome Dr. Gonzalez to our dental home.< Back to Blog
