Dentist – Channahon, IL

Get to Know
Dr. Seokjae Son

Why Did He Decide to
Become a Dentist?

Dr. Son decision to join the dental field was deeply rooted in his passion for helping others as well as a desire to engage in hands-on work to express his creativity. Ever since he was young, he was drawn to dentistry as the ideal profession to fulfill his aspirations.

Dr. Son also had experience witnessing his grandfather—a Korean War veteran—wearing dentures due to tooth loss from wartime injuries. He was fascinated with the idea of one day restoring his smile, thus igniting his passion for pursuing a career as a dentist. As the perfect blend of artistry, compassion, and technical skill, dentistry allowed him to keep his childhood promise to his grandfather and continues to give him the chance to make a positive impact in the lives of others.

Where Did He Study Dentistry?

Dr. Son first attended North Carolina State University for his Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry, graduating Summa Cum Laude. He later went on to study at the University of Pittsburgh to earn his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. He remains dedicated to completing well over 20 hours of postdoctoral studies every year in topics like dental implants, cosmetic restorations, endodontic treatment, surgical extraction, clear aligners, and more. Dr. Son is passionate about staying current with the latest advancements in dental technology, techniques, and materials through continuing education. He’s also an active member of the Seattle Study Club.

Outside of the Office,
What Does Dr. Son Like to Do?

Away from the office, Dr. Son spends much of his time with his wife, who he met in dental school and who is also a dentist. Together they have twins, a boy and a girl. In addition to changing lives one smile at a time, he also cherishes moments spent with his family, whether it is watching movies, bike rides with his twins, or simply enjoying music once the children are sleeping. One interesting fact about him: someday, he would like to walk the Camino de Santiago, as a journey of self-discovery and exploration.
