Meet Aaron D. Figueroa, DDS, FACS
Board-Certified Oral Surgeon in Northbrook
Dr. Aaron D. Figueroa is thrilled to be back in the North Shore area. He completed his undergraduate training at the University of Rochester in New York where he obtained a B.S. in Microbiology & Immunology. He completed his dental school training at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. Upon completion of dental school, he was accepted into the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Training Program at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. He received broad-scope training there with an emphasis on dentoalveolar surgery, third molar removal, dental implants, bone grafting, jaw reconstruction, and trauma. After finishing his residency he was accepted into the prestigious fellowship at Mercy Hospital in St. Louis where he received advanced training in dental implants, TMJ surgery, cosmetic surgery, and complex facial trauma and reconstruction.
Dr. Figueroa’s fellowship prepared him well to move back to Iowa where he joined the faculty in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery training program at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. He remained on the faculty for 5 years. During that time he maintained a busy hospital practice and faculty practice. He was involved in resident training as well as dental student training during that time. Due to his high volume of more complex hospital cases, he was accepted into the American College of Surgeons. This is an honor that has been awarded to a few Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
Dr. Figueroa brings all that broad experience to our practice. He is a fellow member of AAOMS and was board Certified in 2018. He is a past president of the Iowa Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
He has two young children, Nikhil and Ari with his wife, Chandni. Chandni is also a dentist and has completed medical school and is currently in residency training in pathology at the University of Chicago. During their free time, they enjoy spending time outdoors with their children, watching Netflix, and relaxing. Dr. Figueroa is active and enjoys running, water, and snow skiing among other activities.
