When and how did your business get started? After serving in the US Navy for 27 years, it was time to retire. My family and I were very settled and happy living in Libertyville for over five years so it was natural to look for a private practice opportunity close-by.

What is your business best known for? We take care of smiles for anyone from 1 year old to 104 years old. In addition to preventative care like cleanings, check-ups, and fluoride, we do filings, root canals, restorations, crowns, dentures, veneers, whitening, and implant crowns. We believe in caring for our whole patient and therefore we only do necessary procedures that benefit our patients and fit their budget. We are preferred providers in most PPO networks serving Lake County, IL. 

Does your business offer a special deals card or program? Yes! All uninsured patients can have their regular cleanings and check-up for $109...a savings of over 50 percent.

What's something interesting about your business your customers might not know? Most of my Navy career I served with Marines. On the first ship I served those Marines, they gave me a nickname, "Painless." They said it was a relief when they did not feel the "shot!" After that, they looked forward to coming to see me!

Why did you choose to open your business in Vernon Hills? We choose Vernon Hills because it is centrally located, easy to get to, and frankly it was the best opportunity to start a dental practice close to home.

Last time I was at the dentist I found out I had a root canal, and the dentist working on me didn't really treat me well. I am trying to find a new dentist, so that next time I go in I will be treated better. I found this new place and it seems to have great reviews. <a href='http://www.completedentalhealthmi.com/dental-implants/dental-implant-cost.aspx' > http://www.completedentalhealthmi.com/dental-implants/dental-implant-cost.aspx</a>
