About Dr. John R Reader

Our Philosophy: You Matter Most

We value our patients' time as much as our own and therefore endeavor to be as close to on-time as possible. Our patients will usually have little or no wait for their appointments as we do not overbook our schedule.

We value our patients' health and want the best for them. We present ideal as well as alternative treatment plans so our patients can have the necessary information to choose what's best for them.

We want our patients to be happy with their smiles, and strive to make their experience here as comfortable, personable, and friendly as possible.

About Dr. Antonia Petrosino

Dr. Antonia Petrosino was born and raised in Chicago, IL., and has lived between Italy and the U.S. her entire life. At age 10, her parents decided to move back to Bari, Italy (located on the heel of the “boot”). Eventually, she went on to become a straight 'A' student and graduated 1st in her class. She was accepted into Dental School at the University of “Tor Vergata” in Rome, and with hard work and dedication received her DDS degree in 1998.


Dr. Petrosino attended the University of Illinois College of Dentistry in Chicago, and passed her board exams in order to obtain her license to practice dentistry in Illinois, and has been doing so ever since.

Her love for and dedication to her profession translates into the best possible care for her patients. Dr. Petrosino feels it is very important to educate and inform all patients about their dental needs, and to present achievable options in regards to their treatment. Dr. Petrosino and Dr. Reader have the same philosophy of putting you first, being good listeners, and doing all we can to help with your dental needs and wishes.

Dr. Petrosino lives in Deer Park, IL. with her daughter, and when not working enjoys travel, dancing, reading, and movies. Dr. Petrosino also speaks four languages: English, Italian, Spanish, and Polish.

About Us

About Us

Drs. Reader and Petrosino thoroughly enjoy collaborating and working together. They are about as close as possible to being two dentists cut from the same cloth. They both went to University of Ill. College of Dentistry, both went through the same Orthodontic program, and both have the same approach to putting their patients' needs and wishes first.

Likewise, both doctors value their patients' time as well as providing personal attention in a relaxed and peaceful setting. Their treatment will be thoughtfully considered and recommended with your best interests at heart, and will be performed to the best of their abilities.
