Dr. Larry A. Mulvaney
Dr. Larry Mulvaney is a renowned dental professional who focuses on advanced dental treatments for adults. He is friendly, personable and always takes extra time to make his patients comfortable to ensure their visits are stress-free. These are just a few of the reasons why he’s frequently recommended by patients.
A graduate from the University of Illinois dental school, he completed his periodontal externship at Northwestern Dental School and received his Master of Business Administration from Keller Graduate School. He graduated from the MISCH International Implant Prosthetic Program and New York University two-year Implant and Prosthetic Program. He also completed the one-year advanced implant surgery and anesthesiology program at the University of Puerto Rico. Additionally, Dr. Mulvaney is one of the 14 Kois Course Graduates in Illinois and the 444 across the U.S. The Kois Course is an intensive curriculum involving esthetic, occlusion and restorative dentistry.
Because of his extensive training, Dr. Larry Mulvaney can perform multiple procedures in a single visit using conscious sedation or IV sedation. While most dentists aren’t certified to facilitate IV sedation, Dr. Mulvaney is one of the few who can. This practice helps lower a patient’s stress level by making them relax and put them into a deep sleep during more involved procedures.
Dr. Mulvaney has regularly worked with dental implants and is an authority on bone grafting, which is instrumental to ensuring the success of a dental implant. He is dedicated to improving his skills through ongoing training and education so Northwestern Dental Group patients have access to the newest technologies and he has lectured at industry events discussing implant related procedures.
