Not your ordinary orthodontic experience in Chicago, Northbrook, and Glencoe, IL
I truly believe I have the best job in the whole world. My patients come from all walks of life and I appreciate every one of them. To me, there is nothing more fulfilling than watching smiles widen and confidence grow as treatment progresses.
I decided that orthodontics was my calling long before I began school. When I saw the satisfaction and fulfillment my father derived from his life’s work, I knew it was the career for me. It’s been over 25 years so far, and not a day goes by that I’m not thankful for the privilege to make my patients smile.
Education and Continuing Education
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery at University of Illinois-Chicago
- Master of Science in orthodontics at University of Iowa-Iowa City
I am the consummate student: I take every opportunity, not only to expand my knowledge, but participate in advancements in orthodontics. As the president of the PRIMUS Study Group, I am able to interact with and learn from premier orthodontists from around the country. I am also a frequent guest lecturer at my alma mater, the University of Iowa, which is regarded as having the number-one orthodontic program in the country. My dedication and commitment to providing my patients with the most current knowledge about their treatments is what inspires me to be an eternal student.
Outside the Office
A native of Glencoe, IL, I have lived in Wrigleyville for the past 26 years and love it! I have an incredibly supportive wife named Kristi and we have four beautiful children: Belle, Emmet, Lev, and Aviva. I love any activity that I can share with my wife and kids. As a family, we enjoy camping, hiking, fishing, sledding, snowball fights, and making snowmen. If it involves fresh air and my family, I am all the way in! I also have a deep love of music from all genres, so I feel fortunate to live in a place with such rich and abundant live music.
