Meet Dr. Anne
DR. ANNE SOLUS GAFFNEY graduated from Loyola University of Chicago in 1980 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. She then went on to graduate from Loyola University School of Dentistry in 1984.
Dr. Anne is known by her patients to have a down-to-earth friendly style that makes her easy to like. Her soft touch and gentle approach make her a favorite to may loyal and happy patients. Coming from a long line of dentists spanning five generations, she has a deep-rooted passion for helping people get healthier, look better, and live their lives to the fullest.
“For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to be a dentist. Growing up surrounded by dentists beginning with my great, great grandfather, I guess you could say it’s in the blood. Both of my parents were dentists, and I had the privilege of practicing with my mother from the time I graduated dental school until she retired in 1995. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people, and am truly blessed with the friendships I've made with my patients and their families. It is truly the best part of being a dentist, and such an honor to know that I’ve made a difference in so many of their lives.”
Dr. Anne is an avid animal lover, so much so that she extended her practice of dentistry to treat them. You may have seen some of her patients while visiting Brookfield Zoo! Or, she may even have performed a root canal on your dog at the small animal clinic next to her office. Currently, Dr. Anne is the primary dentist for the research monkeys at Loyola University. She is also the proud owner of a horse, multiple cats, and is looking forward to rescuing a dog or two!
Dr. Anne is a member of the American Dental Association, Chicago Dental Society, and the Illinois Dental Society. She and her staff regularly participate in continuing education and attend numerous seminars to stay current on leading-edge technology and dental treatments, allowing them to provide their patients with more options for the best possible results.
