Dr. Michael A. Goone

I wanted to be a dentist from the time of my first visit to a dental office.

I grew up in Lincolnwood and lived in Skokie while earning my DDS degree at the University of Illinois, College of Dentistry in 1983. After spending a few years providing care at an office in Peoria, Illinois, I returned to the Chicago area, where I have been providing dentistry in the communities of Lincolnwood from 1986 through 2005 and now, Skokie since 2005.

I have continued to update my dental knowledge by taking over 1500 hours of continuing education classes, and I emphasize the use of high-technology dentistry at my office.

As far as professional affiliations, I am an active member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and the Illinois and Chicago Dental Societies. I have also served as an advisory Board Member of the Texas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, and I am a past President of the Society For Advanced Microdentistry.

I look forward to meeting you personally at your next appointment, and my wonderful staff and I will work hard to earn your trust. We are always available for any questions or concerns you may have.


Appointment Coordinator

I have been in the dental field for 17 years as an appointment coordinator and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I enjoy helping patients with scheduling their dental needs. I am a compassionate person and love hearing how our patients are doing. I look forward to helping and getting to know all of our patients at Leading Edge Dental Center. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my loved ones, yoga, cooking, traveling, and dancing.



Office Manager

Deborah has worked in the dental health field since 1979 and has been with Dr. Goone since 1995. Her experience has involved both clinical and administrative duties. She presently coordinates all aspects of the office and she will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have regarding financing options and dental insurance. When not helping our patients she is either spending time with her family or trying to keep up with her two dogs. Her hobbies include gardening and bowling and she really enjoys volunteering at Heartland Animal Shelter.



Dental Hygienist

Tina, homegrown in Skokie, Il, has over ten years of experience in the dental field. She graduated from Southern Illinois University with her bachelor's degree in Science and a degree in Dental Hygiene. When she is not attending continuing education seminars, she likes outdoor activities and learning how to cook. She also enjoys spending time with her nephews. She hopes to keep all of her patients happy with a bright and healthy smile and cannot wait to meet you.



Dental Assistant

I am so happy to have been Dr Goone’s assistant for over 10 years! It has been my pleasure serving all our wonderful patients and helping them get healthy, beautiful smiles. When I am not at the office, I am at home with my two dogs or traveling with my family.


I have been working in the dental field since 1990 and joined the Leading Edge Dental Center team in 2023. I am a proud mom of two wonderful children. When I am not helping patients get healthy, I am enjoying vacations with my family, hosting gatherings and special occasions in my home or taking long walks with my dog.
