Every day, patients come through our doors and place their confidence and trust in our hands. It is my personal responsibility to give the best possible care to each person I meet. I strive to be the best that I can be as an orthodontist by giving our patients a friendly, positive experience during treatment. It is a privilege and an honor that my patients have chosen me to improve their smiles through orthodontics, and this trust is much appreciated. I started my practice over 30 years ago, and I’m still going!

Family and Community
I was born in a small town, Santa Caterina, in Sicily. I immigrated to the US when I was two-years-old. I currently live in Naperville, IL and have been a resident since 1983. I have been married to Christine Parisi for 20 years and have three boys. When my boys were young I enjoyed coaching their baseball and basketball teams. Now I regularly attend their college and high school sporting events such as cross country, volleyball, and basketball. I have an interest in photography and continue to take classes to expand my knowledge. I love to photograph my children's various sporting events and school performances. In my free time I enjoy walking, and running.
I try my best to lead by example. I get sense of satisfaction when I give back to my community through various activities. I am involved in my church ministries by delivering food to Hesed House and participating in Feed My Starving Children organization. I support many local charities and enjoy teaching the importance of dental health to local grade school classes.
