Robert S. Radin, DDS, MAGD

He is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Illinois State Dental Society, Chicago Dental Society, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Prosthodontics Society, and the Pierre Fauchard Academy. He is an Associate Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

Dr. Radin founded Meadows Dental Care in 1982 with the vision of providing comprehensive dental care under one roof to the families in his practice. The opportunities for consultations by specialists and general dentists provides for more seamless and complete treatment. He has been practicing in Palatine since 1979. He has undergone many hours of advanced training in 16 different disciplines of dental medicine in order to receive his "MAGD" - Master of the Academy of General Dentistry.

Dr. Radin cares more about treating you as a whole person and has dedicated his practice to helping you develop a lifetime comprehensive approach for your dental health. We believe this results in lower lifetime costs and fewer lifetime problems than other piecemeal approaches towards your dental health care.

His hobbies include golf, cooking, music and family activities. He has two children (Dave and Heather), and two dogs (Zsa Zsa the Spacey and Ernie the Relentless).


Katrina L. Baeverstad, DDS

baeverFrom Dr. Baeverstad, "I love that every day I get to help my patients improve their smiles. I do this by listening to my patients' concerns and goals for treatment, and then helping them understand their options.

My goal is to help patients take care of their immediate and long-term dental needs. Advances in techniques and technology now allow us to help our patients achieve optimal oral health and aesthetics more effectively and comfortably than ever before.

I love practicing at Meadows Dental Care because we are a patient-centered practice with dental professionals working together as a team to provide patients with individualized, attentive care. We believe in comfortable, quality dentistry, and we aspire to increase the longevity of our patients' teeth.

My education gave me the fundamental knowledge and skill to care for my patients. I continue to exceed continuing education requirements so that I can offer my patients a wide variety of the most up-to-date treatment options for their dental needs.

I love taking my knowledge and expertise into the community to help those who don't have access to quality dental care. I believe that everyone is entitled to a healthy, beautiful smile that is only attainable through education and professional oral healthcare.”
