Hi Im Tanner. I grew up in a small town near Macomb, IL. I received my degree in Dental Hygiene from Carl Sandburg College. I strive to ensure our patients feel comfortable and informed during their visit. Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two black kittens and in my free time I also enjoy hiking.

Never the same after Dr Miller left. Tanner recommended I get root scaling and planing. I went to a periodontist for a second opinion and was told I did not need it. Then next time I came for a different procedure Dr Cheksis pushed further for the root scaling before she even looked in my mouth. This was enough for me to change dentists. Lost confidence in their practice.

Dr. Rene Tanquilut was absolutely amazing with helping alleviate a cracked molar causing excruciating pain. Due to me being in between dentists at the time, I needed a highly recommended local dentist, and he and his staff were able to accommodate short notice. The staff was methodical and caring with coming up with a treatment plan and care schedule. I would highly recommend this dentist and his amazing staff to anyone I know.

When I was a kid going to the dentist was a horrifying, scary experience. It is no longer the case, thanks to Western Springs in Dentistry! Dr. Tanquilut has done a root canal (or two, I forget!), several crowns, a night guard, helped me with my TMJ, and he's about to do an implant. I probably forgot something, but, each and every time he has been reassuring and gentle, and the crowns and the work is always excellent. His methods are very advanced and professional. I have also seen Dr. Cheskis several times, and I don't hesitate to do so. She is also a very nice and reassuring person. The icing on the cake is the wonderful staff. Janette handles all the billing and appointments and somehow always manages to squeeze me in if I have a problem. When Tanner cleans my teeth I don't come out with a sore mouth for several days. She also explains things that I need to do or correct. They are both lovely people and I have fun with both of them. Hard to imagine joking and laughing during a teeth cleaning! Suzy is so fun and reassuring and caring not only about my teeth, but everything else. She has been so kind to me, and has managed to make me laugh and relax even when I'm looking at a big procedure. She makes the best temporaries I have ever had, and the permanent crown is just like my own tooth. She and Dr. T work seamlessly together. It is a wonderful, professional and caring group!

Excellent experience at Western Springs Dentistry. I needed a new dentist due to a recent move. I chose WSD as a result of online search--excellent reviews. I've had two appointments. First was introductory visit and cleaning. Second was to replace a very old deteriorating filling. Both appointments were prompt and very efficiently done. I was very comfortable--literally felt nothing. Dr. Cheskis has an excellent manner--calming and experienced. Office staff is very pleasant. The office is meticulously clean--very nicely appointed. I would strongly recommend Western Springs Dentistry.
