Glenview, IL Oral Surgeon Family Dental Center

Dr. John Hur is a board-certified dual-degree trained Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he graduated with honors, earning his bachelor of arts in Molecular and Cellular Biology. He continued his studies at the University of California, San Francisco School of Dentistry, where he graduated among the top of his class.

During his time at UCSF, he was involved in nationally recognized projects in the field of craniofacial development. He developed a profound interest in medicine and surgery through these academic pursuits. Dr. Hur continued his post-doctoral work in New York, where he received his medical degree from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. He then completed a competitive Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency at Columbia University Medical Center/New York Presbyterian Hospital, consistently ranking annually in the top 10 hospitals nationally by U.S News and World Report.

His training involved a fully integrated General Surgery preliminary internship with focused rotations in plastic/reconstructive surgery, trauma, anesthesia, and maxillofacial oncologic surgery. He then concluded his training at NYP Hospital, where he completed his intensive full-scope oral and maxillofacial surgery training with an emphasis on CT-guided implant and corrective jaw surgery.

Dr. Hur’s current practice reflects a foundation in full-scope training, with an emphasis on orthognathic surgery (corrective jaw surgery) and complex dental implant surgery that utilizes CT-guided skeletal mapping and surgical protocols. His other services include third molar surgery (wisdom tooth extractions), dentoalveolar surgery, pathology, facial trauma, and temporomandibular joint disorders.
