Mission Statement

Our practice is committed to be a leader in providing the highest quality of dental care and customer service. We stress the importance of providing ideal dentistry and oral health care that will last a lifetime.

Our Start

Kaufman & Kaufman Smile Design Studio was founded in 1950 by Dr. Richard I. Kaufman Emeritus, a past professor and a graduate of the University Of Illinois School Of Dentistry.

What was once a one chair office, it has grown since into an eight-chair office now run by his son, Dr. Louis Kaufman, who holds an immaculate expertise in the field of dentistry. With over 60 years of experience, Dr. Richard has led the way for many dental practitioners in the area and has never stopped serving and contributing his community of Hyde Park.


We are proud to provide a state-of-the-art facility for the highest quality dental care available. It is one of our top priorities to protect the well-being of our valued patients. For this reason, our office meets and surpasses all OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and CDC (Center for Disease Control) standards. We are confident that you will feel right at home in our office as we welcome all patients as if they were family.


If you would like to make an appointment, please click here or contact our office by phone or email. Our office facilitates communications and emergency calls and appointments are available and welcome, especially for new patients seeking help.


We will be more than happy to submit all insurance forms for you and help you recover the most from your benefits. We will do everything we can to help you afford the treatment you need and want. For patients who require major work, a complete payment plan is designed with an appropriate payment schedule. Forms of payment accepted by the office are check, cash, or any major credit card.


If you are unable to keep an appointment, we ask that you kindly provide us with at least 24 hours notice. We ask for this advance notice so that we can offer this appointment to another patient. A fee may be charged if a patient does not show up for an appointment without sufficient notice.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing our practice for your dental care.
