Our Doctors

Kajal Joshi, D.M.D.

Dr.jpgI am a native of Cary, North Carolina, raised with a good balance of both Eastern and Western cultures. This has helped me hone my skills, recognize cultural approaches to health care and provide personalized dental care for my patients. I have a large, loud and fun family that I adore very much. I consider myself fortunate to have grown up with my grandparents, who raised my siblings and me. I am very family-oriented and aim to make DuPage Pediatric Dentistry feel like family!

Prior to completing my residency in pediatric dentistry at Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center in Bronx, New York, I received a Bachelor of Science in Public Health with a concentration in Nutrition from the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill and my Doctorate in Dental Medicine from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. During my tenure at the University of North Carolina, I received a Summer Research Fellowship and the Professor George V. Taylor Undergraduate Research Award for my research on a cure for breast cancer.

In addition to my passion for research, I graduated with Highest Honors and was granted the Joseph Edozien Outstanding Undergraduate Award. As I moved onto the University of Pennsylvania, I was honored with the Clement C. and Sandra K. Alpert Scholarship and ADEA/Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Products Preventative Dentistry Scholarship. Subsequently, I was honored to be one of the few students accepted into the Community Oral Health Honors program, allowing me to fulfill my dream of developing a self-sufficient waiting room education program. This program is still being utilized at the University of Pennsylvania. Upon graduation, I was awarded the Delta Dental Student Leadership award.

During my residency training at Bronx Lebanon Hospital, I was selected to participate in a faculty development program called the Academy for Academic Leadership. I was also acknowledged with the Award for Outstanding Performance in Evidence Based Dentistry.

Given my background in public health, my philosophy is that prevention is the best cure. My goal is to incorporate education about topics such as preventing cavities to dental anxiety. When the instance calls for it, I prefer conservative to aggressive treatment.

After practicing dentistry in the northeast, I moved to the Chicagoland area two years ago to be with my husband, Ajay Joshi. I am very enthusiastic to call the Glen Ellyn area my new home, and I am devoted to caring for the community. With my background, I am very involved in public health education and outreach. I enjoy volunteering at events, such as Special Smiles, and around the community. When I am not attending continuing education courses, I enjoy a diverse genre of music and dancing, cooking ethnic cuisines, and traveling the world to experience other cultures. I am very interested in the arts; I like to take painting classes, cross-stitch and get creative with DIY projects. I am a big movie buff, especially Disney movies! I enjoy swimming, biking, and going for long walks. However, when I find a good book, I usually am not able to put it down as I enjoy reading – mostly fiction.

I enjoy making people smile and giving them the confidence to smile freely! My favorite part of each day is having my patients leave the clinic just as happy (if not more) as they came in. I enjoy working with kids, being goofy and silly with them, and of course hearing all the fun and interesting topics they have to share. My patients truly keep me young. They constantly show me how they view the world and everything around them, which allows me to learn something from my patients. This is what motivates me to come to work every day.

Thereafter, he went on to complete his dental education at New York University where he graduated amongst the top of his class and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society. It is needless to say but his passion to educate has given him the opportunity to present case studies at conferences, lead study clubs, and train at world class dental institutions.

Thereafter, Dr. Chong received an invitation to complete his orthodontic residency at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He has fallen in love with Chicago while completing his demanding studies and excelling at the top of his class with accolades such as winner of a National Invisalign Award. During his tenure at UIC he also obtained a Masters degree for his research involving the development of a novel method for analysis of tooth movement in 3D.

Dr. Chong is a Diplomat of the American Board of Orthodontics and is an active member of the American Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, Illinois Society of Orthodontists, and Chicago Dental Society.

After spending much time with Dr. Chong, I have come to know him as a caring and talented dentist who possesses the highest qualifications and is well skilled in all aspects of orthodontics. Dr. Chong is an adept practitioner committed to providing the best care available. I have no doubt in my mind that you will be pleased to have him care for your family. It was of utmost importance to me both personally and professionally that I find a professional with high regard for our style of personalized patient care.

Jamieson Brady, D.D.S.

DrBradyDr. Jamieson Brady is a gentle, caring dentist who makes patient comfort his top priority. He graduated from the University at Buffalo summa cum laude with a BS in Biological Sciences and continued to earn his DDS with a concentration in periodontics. While at Buffalo he was active in award-winning research and had several of his studies published in national scientific journals.

After graduation he entered an oral & maxillofacial surgery internship at Cook County Hospital in Chicago. Dr. Brady's practice is now focused on tooth extractions with IV sedation. He has a passion for teaching in his role as Clinical Instructor for Western Surgical & Sedation, where he trains dentists from around the world to safely extract impacted wisdom teeth.

We understand there can be stress associated with dental procedures- Dr. Brady is trained to recognize this and always works to eliminate the anxiety associated with treatment. Dr. Brady is licensed to administer IV sedation. With IV sedation, patients sleep lightly through the procedure and typically have little or no memory of the event. Our highly trained staff ensures this happens in a safe, controlled environment.

Dr. Brady is an active member of the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society, and Chicago Dental Society. Outside of dentistry Dr. Brady enjoys skiing, biking, traveling, and live music. He lives in downtown Chicago with his dog Charlie and cat Carl.
