Meet Dr. Ito

Dr Ito


  • Bachelor of Science – University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
  • Doctorate of Dental Surgery – Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine (IL)
  • Master of Science and certificate in orthodontics – Marquette University School of Dentistry
  • Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics

I graduated as valedictorian of my dental school at Midwestern University, receiving the Dean’s award for the highest academic achievement in my graduating class, and I was elected to the Omicron Kappa Upsilon dental honors society.

As an orthodontics resident at Marquette University, I was recipient of the Deerwood Endowed Orthodontics Scholarship. I also presented and received numerous awards for my research on applications of vibration therapy in orthodontics.

As a demonstration of my commitment to lifelong learning, I became board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics following my graduation from residency.

To help best serve my patients, I complete many hours of continuing education every year. Orthodontics is an always evolving profession, and I want to stay up to date with new imaging, technology, materials, and processes that can all improve the care I deliver. Some recent courses I have taken are related to clear aligner therapy, dental laser treatments, surgical orthodontics, and dental applications of 3D printing.

I also regularly attend the meetings hosted by the Illinois Society of Orthodontists, American Association of Orthodontists, and Chicago Dental Society. This enables me to learn from the leaders in the field of orthodontics and network with other dental professionals.

I was born and raised in Naperville, IL, graduating from Waubonsie Valley High School. After completing my undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, I attended dental school at Midwestern University in Downers Grove, IL where I met my fiancé Ashley. We moved to Milwaukee, WI as I completed my orthodontics residency at Marquette University and then practiced in Rockford, IL for a period of time. We are more than thrilled to have found a home in Woodridge, IL and look forward to starting a family.

In my free time, I enjoy supporting Chicago sports, golfing, hiking, and trying new restaurants. I also make it a priority to time to spend with family and friends. In the future, I hope to find more time for traveling and exploring new places.
