Dr. Hare says that the best thing about being a dentist is forming long-lasting relationships with his patients. Nothing makes him happier than seeing someone’s health and appearance improve over time thanks to a customized treatment plan he designed to meet their unique needs and goals.
“My dad is an orthodontist, and growing up, I was able to witness his passion for his patients and his commitment to his work. Throughout the years, I grew more and more interested in dentistry and developed the same passion, which is what led me to dental school and eventually Grand Dental. Today, I’m happy to practice in the same field as my dad while forging my own path.”
Dr. Hare earned both his undergraduate and Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Since graduating, he has completed advanced training focused on cosmetic dentistry, full mouth rehabilitation, occlusion (bite alignment), dental implants, and endodontics (root canals). He maintains active memberships in both the American Dental Association and SPEAR Education.
Dr. Hare loves spending time with his wife and baby daughter as well as with his extended family, “a modern-day Brady Bunch”, with five siblings and nine nieces and nephews. Fun fact: Dr. Hare was a competitive swimmer at Lockport High School and a record holder in the 100-yard backstroke at UIC. A big football fan, you’ll find him cheering on the Bears at every opportunity.
