Dr Marty VerbicA Passion For Orthodontics

I first observed how powerful and transforming orthodontics can be in people’s lives through the work of a family friend who was an orthodontist in my hometown of DeKalb, Illinois (IL). I was inspired to become an orthodontist myself after watching him create beautiful and healthy smiles for his patients.

Academic Excellence

I attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and received a B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering with Distinction in 1999. After working for several years as a research engineer in the aerospace industry with low observables (stealth technology), I went back to school and received a D.D.S from the University of Illinois at Chicago, College of Dentistry. During my time at the College of Dentistry, I was honored to receive the highest awards for academic excellence conferred upon a student by both the Illinois State Dental Society and Chicago Dental Society. Following graduation from dental school, I attended a three year residency at the University of Illinois at Chicago and received a specialty certificate in Orthodontics and an M.S. degree in Oral Science.

Outside The Office

I grew up with three older brothers, one of whom is my identical twin and works as an optometrist. I live in North Barrington, and when I am not working, I enjoy doing Crossfit to stay in shape, as well as watching sci-fi movies and White Sox games during the baseball season.
