Dr. Paul Doodes

Dr. David A. Wenz

“I became interested in dentistry because I wanted to help improve peoples lives. For me, dentistry is an interesting blend of education, research, medicine, art and personal relationships. I want to find out what my patients need, and just as importantly, what they want. I help find a solution to meet their individual concerns, then work carefully to deliver a result that makes them smile every time they look in the mirror. This is an exciting challenge that I take very seriously”.

Dr Doodes graduated with a bachelor's degree in chemistry in the UK before moving to the US to study Immunology and Microbiology at Rush University Medical Center. He has several publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals and has presented his work at many national conferences. Despite a promising start to an academic career, Dr. Doodes craved the human interaction and satisfaction of clinical dentistry. After graduating with his PhD in Immunology and Microbiology, he began dental school at University of Illinois College of Dentistry where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery.

“I believe that each patient is an individual with unique expectations, experiences, wants and needs. By listening to the patient I can address their concerns and deliver a healthy result that makes patients smile.”

In his free time, Dr. Doodes spends time with his wife, Phyllis, and their two young children, William (5) and Lily (8).

Dr. Doodes is a member of many professional organizations including the Chicago Dental Society, Illinois State Dental Society, the American Dental Association. and the American Association of Dental Research.
