Meet Dr. Park

The Journey from Making Toothbrushes to Smile Makeover Specialist

Hi, I'm Dr. Dean Park.  I grew up in Aurora and spent most of my life in the Fox Valley area.

My parents owned The Paradise Inn in downtown Aurora.  I was 10 years old when I started to work there along with my brothers and sisters.  It was truly a family owned business in every sense of the word.  We had many lifelong customers who loved the food, our attention to detail and a sense of being part of our family.

I wouldn't trade the experience for anything in the world.  It created a unique and special bond in our family, with our customers and the community.  Little did I know at the time, that many of the principles, lessons learned and character-building experiences would become the foundation for my business, career and living the American Dream.

I went to Augustana College in Rock Island, IL along the Mississippi River.  During the summer, I worked at Anchor Brush Corporation (formerly in Montgomery) making and packaging toothbrushes, as well as working on the production line.  It brings back fond memories, as the workers treated me well and would often joke with me knowing my goal to be a dentist someday.

After college, I attended Southern Illinois University-School of Dental Medicine in Alton, IL. After graduating, I started my career at Fox Valley Dental Care.  I worked there as a dentist for 18 months, honing my skills and envisioning what the ideal dental experience would be from the patient's point of view.

I then embarked on founding Lincolnway Dental Center, in North Aurora IL. I consider it a privilege to have served my patients and the community there for over 23 years.  The experience was truly life-changing. It brought a greater understanding of people, how they wish to be treated, their likes and dislikes and their hopes and dreams.

Personally, I experienced the joy and pain of building and running a successful practice, balancing a partnership and leading a team of dedicated professionals.  The valuable insights, skills and seasoned perspectives gained, has me energized like never before for this next chapter of the story.

Coming full circle, the next chapter is a new dental practice in beautiful downtown Geneva, IL, in the center of my lifelong experiences in the Fox Valley area.  You're going to love the new facility, state-of-the-art technologies, precision dentistry and the genuine care and concern of being treated as family.

I'd like to invite you to please give us a visit.  I understand the hope and trust that you put in your dentist.  This realization is humbling and at the same time challenging.  It is my motivation and driving force to improve your oral health and the quality of your life in the most comfortable and relaxing environment imaginable.

On a personal note, I married my wife, Diana, in 2004 on the Hawaiian island of Maui.  We enjoy traveling and exploring lighthouses.  My personal hobbies are sports, especially volleyball, softball, and golf!

Sincerely,

Dean M. Park, D.M.D.
