Dr. Mark Cabana is an experienced pediatric dentist born in Chicago and raised in the western suburbs. With his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Illinois at Chicago and a Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry from St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, Dr. Cabana has dedicated over 23 years to providing exceptional dental care for children.

Recognized for his expertise, Dr. Cabana was featured in the 2019 Top Dentist list in Chicago Magazine. Voted by his peers, Dr. Cabana has had the distinction of making the list at USA’s Top Dentists every year since 2018. In 2017, Dr. Cabana was voted Kidlist’s Best Pediatric Dentist in the near western suburbs, highlighting his commitment to excellence in pediatric dental care.

Dr. Cabana is a member of the ADA, ISDS, CDS, AAPD, and ISPD. His thirst for knowledge keeps him current with continuing education. As a member of the American Laser Club, Dr. Cabana recently participated in a hands-on seminar on laser frenectomies and the Function First Model, which emphasizes a multi-disciplinary approach to treating tongue and lip ties. Since it’s always important to give back to the community, Dr. Cabana recently volunteered in Peoria with the Illinois Mission of Mercy to help provide dental care to children and families in need.

Working with children runs in Dr. Cabana’s blood, coming from a family of pediatricians, including his mother, father, and two brothers. His youngest brother, however, has the “coolest” job as a producer for the History Channel in New York City, a favorite family destination where they’re always in search of the best New York-style pizza.

At home, Dr. Cabana enjoys life with his wife Arlene, an attorney, and their three children, Derek, Justin, and Lauren. Their household is also animated by a Shih Tzu named Casper and a hamster named Almond, known for his adventurous spirit, having escaped three times only to find his way back home.

A passionate fan of the Chicago Bears, Cubs, Bulls, and Blackhawks, Dr. Cabana enjoys biking, basketball, golfing, pickleball, and bowling in his spare time. Dr. Cabana also loves traveling. He and his wife just celebrated their 20th anniversary and experienced their dream vacation in Italy.

Dr. Cabana believes that pediatric dentistry is the most rewarding profession in the world. Going to the dentist can be a stressful time for a child and their parents, and it is his goal to make that experience stress free and as much fun as possible. Dr. Cabana feels extremely excited and honored to work at The Loose Tooth Pediatric Dentistry in Plainfield, where he hopes to make a positive impact on the lives of his young patients every day.
