Meet Dr. Qingshan Li, DMD, PhD Board Certified Orthodontist
Hello! I am Dr. Li, an orthodontist with over 25 years’ experience in Orthodontics in the United States, Germany, and China. I’m truly passionate about not only straightening people’s teeth and improving their bite, but also creating beautiful, life-changing smiles!
I had my specialty training in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at the Eastman Institute for Oral Health (University of Rochester Medical Center) in Rochester, New York and the University of Kiel in Germany. Prior to this, I completed a PhD in Dentistry, as well as postgraduate training in Restorative Dentistry at the University of Kiel.
Meet Dr. Bin Yang, DMD, PhD Board Certified Prosthodontist
Hi! I’m Dr. Bin Yang, senior specialist dentist at DentArt Chicago. As a trained and board-certified Prosthodontist, I’ve spent over 20 years restoring teeth and smiles, and helping patients like you to feel more confident.I’ve had patients tell me that before coming to my practice, they suffered from prolonged, unresolved dental problems despite regular dental visits. That’s because the root cause of their problems and related risk factors weren’t identified and assessed. I provide a comprehensive oral exam and risk assessment to identify and understand the root cause of your problems. Because of this, I can then offer effective solutions that cater to your budget—from affordable to high-end. Having spent 12 years teaching dentistry and 15 years as a clinical researcher in advanced dental materials and engineering (tooth bonding, ceramic restorations, remineralization in early dental caries with bioactive materials, implant dentistry), I understand the development of dental disease, the solid foundation of successful restorations, and their failure mechanism.
Your smile and your health are important to me, so I use advanced diagnostic technology, high quality dental materials, and tailored treatment plans to ensure that you have a safe and comfortable experience. I take an integrated approach to your oral health, and I believe in improving your nutrition, chewing ability, speech, smile, and overall confidence. After all, you aren’t just your teeth, right? . . . Exactly!

Meet Dr. Sai Ramani Krishna Kumar, DMD
I am a 2015 Honors graduate from Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dentistry and a 2011 graduate from Manipal University College of Dental Sciences, India where I was a practicing dentist for three years. I am currently a nationally registered EMT in US and graduated with Honors as a Combat Medic with the US Army reserve, where I've been serving since 2016.
I believe in the top-down management based on patient's comprehensive dental/oral needs, starting with educating patients on the prevention and etiology of oral disease, comprehensive dental treatment and regular recall maintenance. A good doctor-patient relationship leads to a stronger dental IQ and healthy hygiene habits in patients.
Having completed continuing education courses involving root canal treatment, crown lengthening and crown preparation procedures, in the past 8-year practice, I have much experience working with both children and adults performing complex procedures under local anesthesia including the extraction of wisdom teeth.
