Meet the Team at
VIP Dental Lounge

We are a full service dental office providing family, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry.

Dr. Lyudmila Tavolzhanskaya, DDS

Dr Lyuda, as everyone calls her, is originally from Ukraine and has been living in Chicago since graduating from UMKC Dental School in 2006.  She really enjoys the biomimetic field of dentistry, concentrating on preserving as much of natural tooth structure as possible.  Her heart mostly belongs to cosmetic dentistry, but she also enjoys surgeries. She, with her 2 kids, and a husband, who not that long ago found his own niche in dentistry, enjoys being in nature and traveling often.

Dr. Alena Bukhar, DDS, MS

Dr. Alena Bukhar is devoted to providing quality orthodontic care. Her gentle and informative approach helps patients to achieve their goals to create healthy and beautiful smiles. Dr. Alena constantly improves her knowledge by attending dental conferences and study clubs. Her mission is to provide excellent orthodontic service using the most recent and advanced techniques. She most enjoys seeing happiness and confidence in her patients after treatment is completed. In her free time Dr. Alena loves to  play chess and ping pong. She often compares chess to orthodontic treatment as it requires a strategic plan to ensure success at the end.

Dr. Shreya Kota, DDS

Dr. Shreya Kota is an Associate Dentist at VIP Dental Lounge. She received her Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. Her favorite part of being a dentist is not just treating teeth, but helping people and seeing them leave the office with a big smile after their visits. She finds it most rewarding to aid in boosting her patient’s self-confidence. In her free time, Dr. Kota loves to cook, travel, find the best restaurants around Chicago, and spend time with her husband, son, and dog.
