Greetings and Welcome to Elmhurst Dentistry for Kids!

I want to thank Dr. Ewers for selecting me to purchase his practice. Dr. Ewers had offers from many excellent pediatric dentists interested in taking over his practice and he chose me to care for your children. I am happy Dr. Ewers has agreed to continue coming to the office to make introductions and make this transition as seamless as possible. During one of our conversations he mentioned that he thought we were similar when it came to how we practice dentistry. While I believe this to be true, there will never be another Dr. Ewers! All the staff that worked for Dr. Ewers, Amanda, Camille, Carol, Kaitlyn, Marlene, Mary and Vanessa, will be in place when you come to the office in 2016. While they are sad that Dr. Ewers health has forced him to stop practicing, they are excited for the New Year! We pledge to keep the practice as you have come to know it.

A little about me…I have been practicing pediatric dentistry in the Chicago area for over 25 years and have learned much along the way. I grew up and currently live in the Western Suburbs. I went to University of Illinois at Chicago Circle, UIC as it is now called, for my Bachelor’s degree with majors in Biology and Psychology, the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry for my Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree and Indiana University School of Dentistry and Riley Children’s Hospital for my residency in pediatric dentistry. I have been married for almost 17 years to a wonderful wife and we have four awesome children ages 4-13. They each have very different personalities and definitely keep us laughing.

I love pediatric dentistry. I really can’t imagine doing anything else…for work. Children are so much fun to treat! Aside from dentistry, I have many hobbies. I have ridden motorcycles all my adult life and have traveled extensively around the world. I love fishing, golfing, cooking and learned how to blow glass through the School at the Art Institute of Chicago under the instruction of Lance Friedman, an internationally known glass blower. He gives private lessons if anyone is interested let me know.

I look forward to working with Dr. Ewer’s team. He has described them as “the best he has had in his career.” I will be bringing a professional team of two other pediatric dentists to the practice in 2016 I have known both of the pediatric dentists that will be working with me for almost 2 years, Dr. Wendy Yang and Dr. Michael Rabinowitz. Dr. Michael and Dr. Wendy have known each other for almost 10 years.

I was honored to attend Dr. Wendy Yang’s wedding this summer. Dr. Wendy received her BS in Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Genetics from the University of California, Los Angeles as well as a Masters Degree in Oral Biology. She received her DDS degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry and completed her pediatric residency from the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Wendy enjoys doing research, volunteering, and working abroad. She has helped provide dental services in both Honduras and Guatemala. Dr. Wendy has presented her research at the International Association for Dental Research and worked as a Global Health Intern. She received the Student Award for Achievement in Global Oral Health. Dr. Wendy is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and is Board Certified and a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. In her spare time, she likes to travel, make jewelry, cook, dance and learn languages. She speaks Mandarin and Spanish, and is currently learning Portuguese and Russian. Dr. Wendy is an interesting, talented and happy California girl who also enjoys orthodontics. Dr. Ewers will be introducing her to those of you in braces over the next few months.

Dr. Michael Rabinowitz was also married this summer. Dr. Michael is originally from Deerfield, Illinois. He graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience, received his DDS degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry and completed his pediatric residency at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC where he was selected to serve as the chief resident of the program. Dr. Michael is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and is also Board Certified and a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Michael is a big kid at heart, as all three of us are, and he loves to sing along to any tune— from radio hits to Disney favorites. He also loves animals and is an avid fan of music, theater, and other performing arts.

Dr. Wendy and Dr. Michael have also practiced in other offices here in the Chicago land area and I am thrilled to have them as part of the Elmhurst Dentistry for Kids Family.
I have always believed we improve who we are and what we do professionally by hearing feedback. Therefore, our staff will be periodically checking in with you to see how we are doing and I hope you will always find time to tell us your thoughts. We look forward to meeting you and your children! The goal of Elmhurst Dentistry for Kids is to provide the finest comprehensive dental care for the children in our practice so they leave with a healthy smile and a positive attitude toward dental care as they approach adulthood.

We look forward to meeting you!

Drs. Jerry, Wendy and Michael
