I cannot fully explain the excitement I have discovered by practicing orthodontics. I enjoy the challenge of combining both art and science in treatment planning and bringing it to the ultimate conclusion, a beautiful smile and delighted patient. I consider each patient to be a partner with me in creating their new smile and am never satisfied until I see a happy, confident face leave my office.
I attended Northwestern University for my undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate education and completed my General Residency program at Evanston Hospital. My love of my profession drives me to constantly continue my education. Be it study club participation in pilot programs or attending professional seminars, all these sources ultimately serve the needs of my patients. I am a member of several professional associations, that provide me with opportunities for continuing education, including the:
- The American Association of Orthodontics
- The American Dential Association
- The Illinois Society of Orthodontists
- The Illinois State Dental Association
Come and spend a day with us and you’re certain to agree that this office is unlike any other you’ve been to. It is bright, airy, and filled with laughter, both from our patients and our staff. My team is truly an orthodontic family, thoroughly trained in their roles and eager to make today a bit better than yesterday.
I am a native of Decatur, IL, and my wife and I have lived in Northfield for the past 33 years. I have three children, and five wonderful grandchildren. In my free time I enjoy gardening, wood-working, reading, fishing, and playing golf.
