Meet Dr. Couret
Once Dr. Couret, our dentist in Chicago, IL, had completed dental school, he pledged to never stop learning, and remains committed to the latest cutting-edge technology and advances in the field of dentistry.
From a very early age, my father taught me the value of hard work. My dad owned Shell gas stations and started bringing me to work when I was five. By age seven, I was pumping gas. I remember when I would run outside to greet a customer, my father would remind me to “look enthusiastic, pick up your feet, and smile!” He taught me that every person who pulled into the station deserved an amazing customer experience.
I loved every minute of working at the gas station. My early experience taught me that I wanted a career working directly with people. One day in college, I needed to see a dentist, so I asked around and got a recommendation to see a dentist named Dr. Frank Munoz. When I walked into his office, the staff were welcoming, friendly, and greeted me by name. They genuinely seemed like they all loved their jobs. For the first time, I felt a healthcare provider truly cared about me.
Then his hygienist gave me the best teeth cleaning that I had ever received in my life! Perhaps because my grandfather had been a dentist and the idea was somehow embedded in my subconscious, but that day I decided to become a dentist.
Since then, I’ve built my dream office. This was not done alone – I am surrounded by the best team. Most importantly, I could not have achieved my dream without the support of my wife, Sarah, who has always been my biggest cheerleader. As the proud owner of Dente Complete Dentistry, I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve the smile of your dreams.

Make Yourself at Home
I understand that going to the dentist can be a daunting and anxiety-provoking experience, which is why I’ve created a welcoming atmosphere that feels like a home away from home.
I have a great team of wonderful people who have become an integral part of my practice over the years. We’re more than just a team of dental professionals, we really are a family. As cheesy as it may sound, when you become a patient of Dente, you become a part of our family.
We are committed to learning about you because we care. We don’t just care about your teeth, we want to get to know you as a human being and understand your dreams and your fears so that we can better serve you.
