The best days are now! Every day I see friends, family, and their children in my schedule who I’ve known for my entire career. 3D imaging, same-day crowns and veneers, non-invasive medical caries treatment with Silver Diamine Fluoride for children and complete care while collaborating with my medical colleagues in this era of expanding technology. One patient at a time is a great recipe for patient comfort and a happy life.

Dr. McNerney grew up in a family of 6 in Oak Park, Illinois and attended OPRFHS. After high school he attended Triton college, the University of Illinois at Chicago and then went on to Northwestern University Dental School, with the aid of an academic grant. Dr. McNerney utilized the grant all four years. He graduated at the top of his dental school class and was awarded the Louis A. Hobson Memorial Award from the department of oral and maxillofacial surgery for “Exemplary Performance in Educational Pursuits and Patient Care.” He then was accepted into, and completed, a General Practice Residency at the Great Lake Naval Base and the North Chicago VA. The residency focused on advanced training in oral surgery, periodontal surgery and prosthodontics.

In 1995, Dr. Sam Calabrese and Dr. John McNerney opened the doors to Sandy Point Dental, PC in Lake Zurich. It has been a fun and amazingly successful venture. Dr. McNerney could not have asked for a better community to serve all off these years.
