Dr. Curtis is a lifelong resident of Illinois, growing up on the south edge of Cook County. Although his upbringing was in an outer suburb, he longed to live and work in a more rural setting.

After college, Dr. Curtis attended the University of Illinois College of Dentistry, then completed his orthodontic residency at Northwestern University in 1986, serving as President of his class for both years.

Dr. Curtis met his wife, Christine, in college. Chris later attended dental school at the University of Illinois, and they started their family of four children: Elise, Danny, Robbie and Mac. Dr. Curtis is grateful for the many friends and families he has met while caring for DeKalb County’s orthodontic needs for the past 30 years.
