Meet Our Staff
Linda Sommercorn, DDS
Dr. Sommercorn received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Illinois, graduating in the top 10% of her class. She received several awards at graduation: Best in Dental Radiology, Best in Endodontics and the Pediatric Dentistry Award.
After dental school, Dr. Sommercorn worked in private practice for several years. She then returned to school to specialize in Endodontics. She received her specialty certificate in Endodontics and a Master’s in Oral Biology from Northwestern University Dental School. At this time she also did research that was funded in part by American Association of Endodontists and Northwestern University Medical School. She did her research in the continued development of immature roots in supplemented culture media. She was chosen to present her research at the American Association of Endodontists annual meeting in New York for which she received an AAE award. Her research has been quoted many times in research and literature that followed and her culture media continues to be used in research in the development and growth of teeth outside the mouth.
Dr. Sommercorn has lived and practiced in the Libertyville area for over 20 years and has raised her children in the community. She continues to be supportive of the Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and various Libertyville area sports teams through donations and volunteering.
She is an active member of several national, state and local dental and endodontic specialty organizations that include: the American Dental Association (ADA), the American Association of Endodontists (AAE), the Illinois State Dental Society (ISDS), the Illinois Association of Endodontists (IAE), the Chicago Dental Society (CDS) and the Edgar D. Coolidge Endodontic Study Club.
Dr. Sommercorn believes in maintaining the highest standard of care available, as if each patient is a member of her own family. All root canal procedures are done with an endodontic microscope, one-time use only files, and digital radiography.
