Dentistry is in my blood. I can honestly say I enjoy it more today than I did when I started practicing 28 years ago. There has been an explosion in technology that has made dentistry more rewarding, innovative, and exciting. These changes all translate into better quality care and a more pleasant dental experience for our patients. With that in mind, I have remained committed to remaining on top of these changes through continuing dental education courses and introducing new technology into the practice.
I grew up in Chicago; in 1985, I graduated from Loyola University with a bachelor’s degree in biology. In 1989, I received my dental degree from the University of Illinois College of Dentistry. I pursued a General Practice Residency from the then-West Side VA Hospital in Chicago and completed the residency in 1990. I am a member of the ADA, ISDS, PDDS, and CDS.
I met my husband, Ron, in dental school; we married in 1990. After practicing a few years in Chicago, we moved to Ron‘s hometown of Morton, Illinois. In 1992, we established Ranson and Ranson Family Dental, located in the heart of the Morton community. We have one daughter in college and two very sweet Goldendoodles. When not practicing dentistry, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and exploring my creative side in painting.
