Meet our Doctors
Northbrook IL Orthodontist
Dr. Uhland and Dr. Thometz have over 25 years of experience in private practice. They stand committed to the highest level of oral health as the foundation to create a lifetime of beautiful smiles.
Since opening our office in Northbrook in 1996, we have dedicated our practice to making sure our patients are given the healthy, straight, beautiful new smile they deserve. Our practice grew because of our strong ties in the community, and we were able to open a second office in Glenview, where we live. Now, over 25 years later, we are still brightening the world one smile at a time.
Together, we have four children: Mary Anne, Kristen, Robert, and Joseph. We also have a playful Portuguese Water Dog, Wrigley, who loves everyone he meets. We have enjoyed cheering on our children in college, law school, and now medical school.
We have enjoyed staying involved in the community and bringing smiles to people in other ways including sponsoring events for over 25 years at local schools. It has been a rewarding experience to see our patients enjoy their new beautiful healthy smiles. We feel fortunate and cherish the relationships that have developed over our 25 years of practice.
