Tilden Dental Group: Meet our Dentists

Serving River North, Old Town, Gold Coast, Streeterville, and Downtown Chicago since 1980

Dr. Jordan Tilden

If you’ve been referred to our office, you already know of Dr. Tilden’s expertise. He graduated from the University of Illinois College of Dentistry with honors and belongs to two dental study groups for advanced, continued education. He offers the highest quality of cosmetic and implant restorations along with over 30 years experience. He has the honor of being an Assistant Clinical Professor for UIC College of Dentistry, has the highest A+ rating with Angie’s List & Better Business Bureau, was a “Top Doc” Dentist in 2011, and one of the top 40 dentists in the Chicago area according to Chicago Consumer’s Checkbook.



Dr. Zachary Tilden

In June 2016 we were thrilled to welcome Dr. Tilden’s son, Dr. Zack (as the patients and staff call him) as our second full-time General and Cosmetic Dentist. He worked directly with Dr. Tilden for 4 years to learn his proven clinical techniques and diagnostic skills prior to attending dental school at UIC. Dr. Zack’s approach to dental care reflects that the doctor-patient relationship is a team effort, so by asking questions and listening to your needs, he comes to an understanding of what your goals are and how he can make those a reality. Dr. Zack is our preventative dentistry guru. His goal is to arm you with the knowledge you need to be cavity-free for years. He also has a focus on minimally invasive dental procedures, cosmetic smile design, which refers to any cases involving the front teeth, and replacing teeth with implants. He is currently using his depth of knowledge to develop an all-encompassing blueprint and cheatsheet entitled, The How to Guide for Healthy Gums and a Cavity-Free Life! In addition, he is excited to be developing new continuing education materials that will be used by thousands of dentists worldwide.

Outside of our office, Dr. Zack is a member of the Chicago Dental Society, American Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry. Like Dr. Tilden, he is a member of three specialty study clubs for advanced education and attends at least one course per month. Dr. Zack is the outreach coordinator at Tilden Dental Group, which means he stays informed about all volunteer dental events offered throughout the year and is responsible for helping us reach our goal of donating $20,000 worth of free dental care each year.  As of March 14th, 2017, we have already reached $13,000 in pro bono care! After work hours Dr. Zack enjoys working out, bike riding on Lake Shore Drive, listening to podcasts, and getting to know Chicago’s food scene.
