WE LOVE TO SEE OUR PATIENTS SMILE.
I can honestly say that Dr. Silberman’s is the best dental practice I have ever experienced. I say dental practice and not dentist because everyone there, from the hygienist who cleans my teeth, to the person who greets me at the front desk, shares a similar sense of care and commitment as Dr. Silberman. I appreciate the comprehensive approach Dr. Silberman takes.

After receiving his certification in prosthodontics, Dr. Prieto continues to be engaged in his dental education. He is an active member of the American College of Prosthodontists and International Team for Implantology and has attended conferences and seminars to stay informed in the ever-changing field of dentistry. Dr. Prieto is passionate about providing the highest quality of care for our patients and enjoys the challenge of developing the best treatment options to fit a patient’s specific needs.
While his attention to detail helps to provide the best outcomes both functionally and esthetically for his patients, Dr. Prieto also believes that building a strong relationship with them is essential to their overall care. Every patient’s experience is unique and it is his goal to have every patient feel comfortable during a procedure, and for his patients to trust that they are receiving the best treatment available. Dr. Prieto loves working with patients, educating them about their dental health, and improving their quality of life. He is happy to join Evanston Dental Associates and the Evanston community.
Outside of the dental office Dr. Prieto spends his time expressing his more creative side by making music and cooking. He has always been fascinated with the culinary world and loves trying to cook new dishes. His best dish creation to date is undoubtedly his chicken enchiladas with red sauce. Dr. Prieto also participates in many sports with soccer being his favorite. He is the oldest of three siblings with a younger sister and brother. Family is very important to Dr. Prieto; and while he and his siblings live in different cities they frequently get together to spend time with each other.
