Cameo Dental Specialists

Back in 1979, while gas prices skyrocketed to an all-time high of 86 cents per gallon and the city struggled beneath one of its largest snowstorms on record, Richard and Raymond Munaretto founded a dental practice in Elmwood Park. Under the name Cameo Endodontics, LTD., the Munaretto brothers—Doctors of Dental Surgery from Chicago's Loyola and UIC Dental Schools respectively—instilled a level of quality and compassionate care that raised Cameo to its current slot as one of Chi-Town's top dental specialty practices.

Renamed in 2017 to Cameo Dental Specialists, LLP, today more than 50 staff members are employed at four Chicago area locations. Because 90% of its cases are due to general dentist referrals, Cameo has increased in scope of practice. To the founders' original endodontics focus the practice has added periodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and state of the art operatories with advanced technology.

All of that said, curious lookers-on might wonder how a small-scale family practice achieved such success.

Highly Trained Specialists You Can Trust
"Cameo is all about our remarkable people," asserts endodontist and ABE diplomate, Dr. Vladana Babcic. "40 years of inspired, highly trained specialists have guided Cameo toward the ideal model of advanced care that today's patients expect. We’ve stayed humble and grateful, and we know that success means hard work.”

One of Babcic's fellow partners, endodontist and ABE diplomate, Dr. Rick A. Munaretto, concurs. "I am so proud of our Cameo team and the amazing care we provide on behalf of our colleagues, the referring doctors. We have all poured a great deal of mental energy, sweat, stress, and money into the practice," Munaretto continues, "And we've built something great. The future is looking fantastic for Cameo Dental Specialists and our colleagues. It's especially promising for patients who wish to enjoy a life with good oral health."

Team-Driven Dentistry
"The best interest of the patient is the only interest to be considered, and in order that the sick may have the benefit of advancing knowledge, a union of forces is necessary." —William J. Mayo, 1910.

Cameo's roster includes 13 doctors, nine endodontists, five partners, two periodontists, and two oral surgeons. The practice additionally employs a dental hygienist to provide routine maintenance for perio patients. A visit to Cameo reveals the professional camaraderie that unites these high-energy specialists. "Our team-oriented approach pairs doctors from each discipline to evaluate a case when it becomes necessary," explains partner and ABOMS diplomate Dr. Joseph B. Baptist—one of Cameo's oral and maxillofacial surgeons. "With two or more doctors available to provide expert opinions, our patients receives the highest level of care."

"The Cameo Experience" — Patient's View
Although this family practice has grown over the years, Cameo's ideals remain the same as they were in Richard and Raymond Munaretto's original office. "Our goal is to provide the finest quality care," Dr. Babcic plainly states. From the patient's viewpoint, however, just as important is the trust that comes from knowing that their doctors rate among the nation's top dental specialists. Evident to all is the fact that each team member (and every employee) is hand picked and trained to help create a positive healing experience.

Methodology

Chicago magazine commissioned an independent survey by topDentists, LLC. topDentists sent a combination of online and paper surveys to 1,600-plus dentists in the greater Chicago area and asked them to nominate the peers they would trust to treat their own family and friends. Only licensed professionals practicing in the greater Chicago area were eligible to make the list.
