I grew up in a family of six in Oak Park, Illinois and attended Oak Park High School. After high school I attended Triton College, UIC and then went on to Northwestern University Dental School. I graduated in the top ten of my dental school class, and afterwards completed a General Practice Residency at the Great Lakes Naval Base and the North Chicago VA in 1989. The residency focused on advanced training in oral surgery, periodontal treatments, and prosthetics.
In 1990 I began my private practice career at an office in Chicago. In 1992 Dr. Sam Calabrese was brought into the same practice and we immediately became fast-friends. We decided to go into practice together, and after an extensive search decided on Lake Zurich as an optimal location for a new practice. We opened Sandy Point Dental, P.C. in 1995, and by 2004 we had grown so quickly that we built our own building and moved into our present location. It has been a fun and successful 15 years in partnership with Dr. Calabrese at Sandy Point Dental.
What I like about sandy Point Dental: Our practice is in a beautiful, modern building with the most advanced technology to date. We love performing cosmetic dentistry, implants, and we are great with children too! However, I’d have to say our best attributes are that we are a relationship-driven practice, our team is exceptional with patient care, and we listen to patients and we do what we say we’ll do. .
