I grew up in Michigan and spent most of my youth in the suburbs of Detroit. I attended Kalamazoo College for my undergraduate studies and eventually found my way to Chicago for dental school. During my 4 years in training at the Northwestern University Dental School, I fell in love with the Windy City. Although my pediatric residency required me to move to Ohio to continue my training at the Cincinnati Childrens Hospital Medical Center, upon completion, I came right back to where my dental journey started. I joined my current practice in 2002 and immediately felt at home. Since my return to Chicago, Ive had wonderful opportunities to work with children in settings outside of the office. Through Lakeview Church, I was able to practice dentistry overseas in Belize (2002) and Nicaragua (2004 and 2005), helping the poor and underprivileged with their critical dental needs. I also volunteered time at the Lawndale Christian Health Center to serve the dental needs of the children in the surrounding communities. In addition, I enjoy working as an associate clinical professor in the pediatric dental department at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I am happily married and enjoy spending time with my wife, Karen, son, Christian and daughters, Karis and Grace. I am also a dedicated sports fanthough I love Chicago, I cannot give up my loyalty to my beloved Detroit sports teams. I also enjoy playing volleyball and basketball, eating Indian food, and watching sports on television.

I am a board-certified pediatric dentist and Ive been practicing for several years. I grew up in the Bay Area of Northern California and completed a 6-year accelerated dental program at University of the Pacific, School of Dentistry. After finishing dental school, I completed a pediatric dental residency at Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY. While in dental school, it was always my dream to one day move to the Windy City, so after residency, I moved to downtown Chicago to start practicing Pediatric Dentistry.

I joined Childrens Dental World in the fall of 2009 and enjoy working in an office where I can truly make children feel at home. With every visit, a child chooses a movie of his/her choice, and leaves with prizes and balloons which helps children look forward to their next visit to the dentist. I enjoy spending time with each child to address any questions or to alleviate any fears he/she may have. I believe that the prevention of dental disease must start at an early age, and taking the time to teach patients how to care for their teeth leads to good habits that last a lifetime. I strive to individually accommodate my communication and care to each patient based on the childs emotional, developmental, and chronological age.

I was born in Chicago and grew up in Oak Brook, IL. After graduating high school, I was accepted into an accelerated 7-year dual-degree Pre-Dental Science program. I attended Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA for undergraduate studies and the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA for dental school. After receiving my DMD degree, I completed a general practice residency and pediatric dentistry residency at Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center in the Bronx, NY. I served as chief resident during my pediatric residency. Additionally, I am board-certified and an American Board of Pediatric Dentistry Diplomate.

After practicing in Atlanta, GA for over 5 years, I moved back to Chicago. I am very excited to be a part of Childrens Dental World! I enjoy yoga, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.

Very helpful girls in the front desk, I will most definitely come back for my son to be seen here and be his primary dentist.

Our little guy had his first appointment today with Dr Sam, and he liked it! He got to watch Cars the movie for the first time, and he was excited about the squishy cupcake toy he received at the end of the exam. His assistant Yadi (Yari?) was very helpful and so patient with our son, and the experience from front to back was excellent. Looking forward to his appointment in 6 months!

I have 5 children, my eldest being 25 and my youngest 6. They've been patients with Children's Dental World for a long time and they've always had the best experience there. Dr. Park has always cared for their teeth and due to some unfortunate cavities, Dr. Allison is also a part of their experience. Both are very really great and I would definitely recommend them for children's dental care. Not only are the Doctors great, but the staff are really great with children as well. They are very patient with my children and really show their love for them both during and after visits.

This place is the best. My son always says that his Dentist office is the coolest. Lol. The entire staff is friendly, patient, and accommodating. They talk directly to my son and not just to me, which shows a high level of respect for both kids and parents. The office is fun and has the things to make kids feel less nervous about the Dentist. The attention to detail and extra little things push it all over the top. At the end of the appointment, the kids get the usual toothbrush and stickers, but they also get quarters to use on the toy vending machines! Genius!

Wonderful experience. Dr. Sam and staff are amazing with kids. The dentist was super informative, friendly, and professional. They gave my toddler stickers during the appt and prizes at the end. I will say that the office interior itself could be a bit more modernized/updated. What I thought was going to be a stressful situation ended up being a great experience. Highly recommend!

Been coming here for a little over a year with my 2 toddlers. Staff is great. Friendly and very attentive to individual care and needs. Both my kiddos are difficult to deal with, but the doctors, techs and front desk handle them very well without making it feel awkward. I appreciate them so much! One thing is that their hours don't run past business hours so it makes scheduling appts a little hard. I almost always have to pull my kids from school and take PTO. But it's worth it!

Cancelled an appointment the day before due to standardized testing in school that I didn't know about when I made the appointment. I was told I would get charged a $50 fee for same day cancelleation even though I cancelled the day via message.. The receptionist indicated the fee's are computer generated and they didn't check the message until the day of. They ended up waiving the fee considering it was the DAY BEFORE. When I tried to reschedule-- I couldnt get an appointment for another 2 MONTHS. Oh... and she was kind enough to remind me that in the future I would be charged the late fee. Completely unncessary.

Dr Allison was wonderful. She was very sweet and patient with our daughter who can be hard to deal with sometimes. Seeing a dentist was never fun but Dr Allison made it easy and not so bad for our first visit. This office is great, esp the staffs were super helpful!!! We love it here. Good experience all around.

I stressed about finding a dentist for my first child. We have now been here twice and it has been the best find. Everyone is extremely friendly and professional. They got my son in and out quickly. They made a point of taking time for any questions we had. My son wishes he could go more often. Well done!

We had a great experience at Children's Dental World! They let the kids pick out a DVD to watch while they get work done, they get to pick up little toys when they're done, and the staff has great bedside manner for kids!!

Most recent visit was odd and strange psych tactics. Disappointed to say the least. Insisting on needing things-- especially pushy w the xrays stating xrays from the ortho wouldnt be viewed bc that wont help and we needed different xrays ( even tho they werent viewed) and she couldnt do anything without it. So why charge for an exam? To count teeth, that the hygienist already counted?? It was bizarre- definitely not going back to be pressured into ridiculous plans. There had been a few things that I didnt care for in the past visits but didnt think much of it until this last time.
