Welcome. First, I'd like to start off by thanking you for allowing us the opportunity to provide dental care to you and your family. We will never take that responsibility lightly, I assure you.
I spent most of my life growing up in Northwest Indiana. I met my wife in high school and despite my plans to marry after graduating dental school, we wed right after I was accepted. This became more of a blessing than I would have ever expected. My wife helped me through dental school by providing moral, emotional and financial support. At one point in time she worked 3 jobs in order for us to make ends meet. I can truly say I wouldn't have been able to do it all without her.
I've been blessed with 4 active boys that have kept us busy with school and travel sports throughout their lives. In between my two families, SFD and the Sinnis clan, I find time to "get away" by looking through a camera lens. I also enjoy outdoors sports and riding motorcycles.
I purchased this practice in 1996 and from day one I knew it wasn't what I had envisioned for myself. Instead of a dental factory where patients are rushed in and out for the sake of production numbers, I wanted to get to know each of my patients and their families. I wanted to help friends, not patients. I think we have accomplished this. Our friends enjoy a low stress atmosphere where jokes and silliness are daily menu items. Life is too short for stress and when my patients are stressed, I'm stressed.
