Associated Orthodontists, the area’s leader in orthodontic care for children, teens and adults, is proud to announce the addition of Dr. Tyler Ramir to the AO team. He is currently accepting new patients, and will be practicing at AO’s Joliet, Plainfield, Frankfort and Bourbonnais locations.

“We are very excited to welcome Dr. Ramir to the AO family, offering our patients expanded access to exceptional orthodontic care,” said Doctors Casey, Cortopassi, Soderquist and Jones. “He brings with him the perfect blend of top-notch education and knowledge, a sincere passion for creating healthy smiles and strong belief in the patient-focused care that has been a part of AO’s culture for over 50 years.”

A native of Addison, Illinois, he earned his Bachelor of Science from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana with a major in integrative biology and minors in chemistry and Spanish. Following graduation, he attended the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry, receiving his Doctor of Dental Medicine.

Dr. Ramir then continued his education at UIC College of Dentistry and completed its Orthodontic Residency Program. He served as class president and earned his Master of Oral Sciences and Orthodontic Certificate.

“Nothing makes me happier than giving my patients the ability to laugh and smile with confidence,” said Dr. Ramir. “I am looking forward to being part of the AO family, building strong relationships with my patients and continuing the tradition of extraordinary care and outcomes that Associated Orthodontists is known for.”

Dr. Ramir is a member of the Chicago Dental Society, Illinois State Dental Society, American Dental Association, Illinois Society of Orthodontists and American Association of Orthodontists.

When heʼs not creating healthy and happy smiles, Dr. Ramir loves to spend time in the great outdoors with his fiancé, Kelsey, and his family — hunting, fishing, golfing, skiing and scuba diving, just to name a few! An avid traveler (15 countries and counting) his goal is to see each and every one.
