Paul N. Greico, DDS

Dr. Paul N. Greico obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Loyola University Chicago and graduated from Loyola University School of Dentistry, Cum Laude, in 1989, where he was also inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society.

After dental school, Dr. Greico practiced for a number of years with his family dentists, Dr. DelMonico and Dr. Trocchio in Elmwood Park, Illinois. He was also an associate of Dr. D’Amico in Elmwood Park. He then worked in Northwest Chicago for 7 years until finally opening his own practice, Dental Essence, in 2005. He has seen nothing but success there; over 3,000 patients (from even a few states away) now entrust him with their routine dental care. He is a current member of the American Dental Association, the Illinois State Dental Society, and the Chicago Dental Society as well.

In the meantime, he married Maria. They have been married for over 24 years. He has three children; Nicholas, Carina, and Angelina, who all enjoy spending some of their free time working with him at the office. He loves being around family, friends, staff, and patients, reading, watching Chicago sports, coaching basketball, and traveling to new places.

Dr. Greico understands that maintaining good oral care, choosing your dentist, and keeping up with your appointments can be a truly daunting task, but he, along with the Dental Essence team, is dedicated, not only to making your smile better and brighter, but also to give you a reason to smile every time you come in.

In exchange for your trust, Dr. Greico strives to work tirelessly every day to guarantee your satisfaction and is prepared to ‘bend over backward’ to ensure that you and your family have the perfect, healthy smile you’ve always wanted, for a fair price, with minimal pain or stress, and in the comfort of a relaxing, family-oriented atmosphere.

“I enjoy all aspects of dentistry, especially interacting with my patients and devoted staff members. Taking care of people is what makes me happy, and I try to treat all of my patients with dignity and respect. I am well aware that many of you make time in your busy schedules and great efforts to come to my office for your dental care, and I will never take that for granted. Dentistry is an art, and I take pride in all of my work. It is my sincerest hope that my patients are truly satisfied with my craft.”

Patrick Brambert, DDS

Dr. Patrick Brambert grew up in Bloomingdale, IL just five minutes away from Dental Essence. He attended Lake Park High School and went on to graduate from Elmhurst University, Summa Cum Laude, with a degree in Biology. During that time, he graduated as an honors program scholar and published his research on protein expression within breast cancer cells.

Afterward, Dr. Brambert attended the University of Iowa School of Dentistry where he graduated with a distinction in public health and published his research on tooth whitening and enamel erosion. He completed an externship at a special-needs clinic in Iowa and an additional externship on a Native American reservation in Cass Lake, Minnesota.

Following graduation, Dr. Brambert has practiced for several years in the Western Chicago suburbs. He is very excited to return to the neighborhood he grew up in and join the Dental Essence family. He currently lives in Winfield with his wife Jeanne, his son Jack, and their dog Nova.

Outside of private practice, Dr. Brambert also currently serves in the Army National Guard as a dentist. He is an active member of the American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society, Chicago Dental Society, and the Academy of General Dentistry. In addition, he also enjoys being an actor and improv comedian.

“Getting to know people and their individual goal is the best part of practicing dentistry. It is very rewarding to meet and care for entire families. I always strive to make treatment decisions a conversation so that patients are comfortable and happy with the care they receive. I feel grateful to be in a profession where I can do my best to make others happy.”

Jay Colucci, DDS

Dr. Colucci grew up in Carol Stream, where he attended Glenbard North High School. He then received a Bachelor of Science from Elmhurst University, where he studied Biology and minored in Spanish. He graduated from the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston before returning home to the Chicagoland suburbs.

As a middle child of 3, Dr. Colucci enjoys spending time with his family in addition to his girlfriend and their dog, Cooper. In his free time, he enjoys exercising at the gym, playing golf or slow-pitch softball, and gaming on his computer with friends.

“While I enjoy all aspects of dentistry, I particularly enjoy cosmetic dentistry. I understand that for many people, their smile is something they can be self conscious about. So, I do my best to ensure every patient feels comfortable asking questions and discussing what they’d like to change about their smile. By the end of treatment, I strive to give all my patients a smile they are proud to show off to the world.”
