Loyola’s General Dentistry Program Gains New Residency Director

MAYWOOD, Ill. – Martin Hogan, DDS, joins Loyola University Health System in the division of general dentistry. He is an associate professor in the Department of Surgery at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine and will lead the General Dentistry Division’s residency program.

“I am thrilled to join Loyola University Health System and to be working with such a great network of medical professionals,” Hogan said. “I love working with the residents and finding opportunities for them to learn more about their specific interests as well as introducing them to a wide variety of opportunities in the dental field."

Hogan brings his expertise in cosmetic dentistry, implants and dental treatment for the medically compromised patient to Loyola’s Oral Health Center, located on the main medical campus in Maywood. In addition to caring for general dentistry patients, he is a part of multidisciplinary teams, providing dental care to a wide variety of patients: children, individuals with special needs, those being treated for cancer and those who have had transplantation surgery.

“Doing dentistry every single day is so much fun for me. I am passionate about it and being in a hospital setting allows me to help a vast number of patients that I wouldn’t usually see in a private practice setting. I also can offer my patients options that are unique to being on a hospital campus, such as conducting dental procedures in the operating room while the patient is asleep. We also work with other physicians so a person can have dental work done following another procedure. That way they are only under anesthesia once,” Hogan said.

Before joining Loyola, Hogan was an associate at the Advanced Family Dental Care practice in Schaumburg, Ill. He earned his doctorate of dental surgery at University of Michigan School of Dentistry in Ann Arbor. He completed his residency in general dental practice at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and worked there in hospital dentistry before going into private practice.

He is a board-certified dental examiner and a member of numerous professional organizations, including the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Academy for Sports Dentistry and the Chicago Dental Society.

When not seeing patients, he enjoys playing hockey, attending sporting events, being outdoors, fishing, skiing and travel.

Dr. Hogan sees patients at the Loyola Oral Health Center, located at 2160 S. First Ave, Maywood. To make an appointment, please call (888) LUHS-888 or visit
