Montgomery Dentist

Dr. Mark R. Commean

I love being a dentist! I have wanted to be a dentist since I was four years old. One of my favorite things is after treating a nervous patient, I get to hear them say “That was easier than I thought it was going to be.” What a reward for my staff and me!

The only result more important to us is giving you a great smile. We love interacting with each one of our patients and we’ll often talk about work, school, kids, and traveling. I am always trying to get to know all my patients better, and in my 14 years of practicing dentistry, I have had the privilege to meet many new people.

After dental school, I attended a year-long training at Ft. Benning, GA. While there, I learned advanced procedures and gained experience beyond the skills I learned in dental school. We know that a dental office is not a place you want to be, so we do our best to have a fun and provide a comfortable environment to help ease any potential fears.

Dr. Amrit Banipal

Creating smiles might sound cliche but that is exactly what I love about being a dentist. It gives me the opportunity to interact with my patients one-on-one, take the time to get to know them and understand their dental needs. My goal is to help all my patients by making every visit as comfortable as possible even though being in a dental office is not their favorite place to be. I prioritize that each patient is unique and so are their dental needs. I strive to do best for my patients and look forward to meeting each and every one of you! 

I went to UIC for undergrad and completed my Bachelors in Biological Sciences. Currently, I live in the western suburbs.  I enjoy spending my free time with my family, checking out any new places and eating out.
