Josephine Chang Pallotto, DDS
Dr. Josephine Chang Pallotto brings a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to our practice.
Growing up in Southern California, she attended the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and graduated with a degree in psychobiology. After her studies at UCLA, she went on to continue her education at New York College of Dentistry. Along with receiving a doctorate in dental surgery (DDS), she also received the Dr. Bernard E. Rudner Memorial Award for demonstrating superior performance in providing comprehensive dental care.
As president of the community service club at NYU and a volunteer on a Grenada service trip, Dr. Josephine has always made community service a priority in her life. Her strong leadership skills drew her toward planning an annual walk to bring awareness and fundraising for oral cancer research and participates in regular oral cancer seminars in our community.
After graduating dental school, Dr. Josephine moved to Chicago and completed another year of extensive training with the University of Chicago through a general practice residency at Evanston Hospital. Working in a hospital setting allowed her to gain experience in treating a wide variety of patients and aiding in complex surgical procedures.
Along with practicing at Pallotto Dental Care, Dr. Josephine has also contributed as a part-time faculty member at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry. She loves the university atmosphere along with the opportunity to stay up to date with dental education and the latest technologies. Dr. Pallotto is a member of the American Dental Association, Chicago Dental Society, and Illinois State Dental Society, along with the Chicago ITI Study Club.
When Dr. Josephine is not practicing dentistry, she enjoys spending time with her family, trying new restaurants and CrossFit training.
