Originally from Rochester, NY, Dr. Basta moved to Milwaukee, WI to pursue his goal of becoming a dentist at Marquette University. While in Milwaukee, Dr. Basta grew to love the Midwest and the people who live there. In his free time, Dr. Basta enjoys singing, playing guitar and spending time with friends. After completing dental school, Dr. Basta decided to stay in the Midwest and move to Chicago. Dr. Basta completed a one-year general residency at Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital improving his skills in oral surgery, gum surgery, special needs dentistry, and implant placements, among many other disciplines. Dr. Basta really enjoys the sights that the city has to offer, attending many of Chicago’s music festivals, and looks forward to meeting all the new patients!
