Park Dentistry

With Empathy, Honesty, and Compassion

Born and raised in the northern suburbs of Chicago, Dr. Monica Urda received the Trustee Scholarship from Loyola University to study biology. A recipient of the Mulcahy Award, as well as the Pre-Dental Award, she graduated cum laude from Loyola and spent the following four years at Marquette School of Dentistry in Milwaukee Wisconsin where she earned her DDS. Afterward, she completed post-graduate coursework in endodontics, dental implants, Cad-Cam technology, aesthetic restorations, and Invisalign. In 2013 Dr. Urda joined a large group practice on the southwest side of Chicago. Through her expertise, her calm, confident manner, and her engaging personal touch Dr. Urda quickly became a favorite doctor among the patients at the large and busy clinic.

Dr. Urda now brings her dedication to excellence and personal approach to dentistry to her own practice: Smile Science Chicago in Wicker Park. Whether for a routine visit or a more complex procedure, you can expect to have meaningful one-on-one with Dr. Urda about your specific needs.
