Anthony Markiewicz, DDS, FAGD
Welcome to our practice! I am honored that so many people have trusted my team and me to provide them with their dental care. As much as I enjoy providing people with beautiful smiles, it is the privilege of being allowed to share in their lives that I am most grateful for. My life has been enhanced by the relationships we have developed with our patients. Many have been with our practice since childhood, and we have all grown together. We have shared the joys of the birth of children, graduations, new careers, and marriages. It is a privilege to be allowed to share in the lives of so many wonderful people.
I grew up in Norridge, Illinois. I attended Holy Cross High School and Loyola University before heading to the University of Illinois College of Dentistry. After graduation in 1985, I proudly served my country for three years as a Dental Officer in the United States Navy. I opened my Mundelein office in 1988.
In order to provide excellent dental care, I must stay current with the latest research and technology. I have made regular continuing education a priority for both myself and my team. Evidence of that commitment came in 2005 when I was awarded Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry. As of 2011, out of the 150,000 dentists in the US and Canada, only 7,010 have earned the prestigious AGD Fellowship. I am currently close to completing the requirements for a Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry, an accomplishment fewer than 2,500 dentists have achieved. In 2013, I was awarded a Fellowship in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
Every time I attend a continuing education course, I am thinking of how these new skills will help my patients. I regularly attend the Pankey Institute, and was awarded a certificate from the L.D. Pankey Dental Foundation in February 2006 for my commitment to ethical and comprehensive dental care.
In 2017 I began regularly attending Continuing Education Workshops at the prestigious Spear Center for Advanced Dental Education.
I am also an active member of the following professional organizations:
- American Dental Association
- Academy of Microscope Enhanced Dentistry
- Academy of Clinical Sleep Disorders Disciplines
- Illinois State Dental Society
- Chicago Dental Society
- Seattle Study Club
- Academy of General Dentistry
- American Academy of Implant Dentistry
- American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology
- Pankey Alumni Association
I am incredibly proud of the team we've assembled to help our patients! We are a team that cares about our patient's satisfaction. We are constantly upgrading our skills through continuing education and training sessions.
Everyone on our staff is committed to providing our patients with the best care possible while providing a positive and welcoming experience. We think of each other and our patients as family. We want everyone who enters our doors to feel at home and completely at ease!
Family Life and Volunteering
When I'm not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family. My wife, four children, three in-laws, and two grandchildren are the greatest gifts I have ever received.
I train and regularly compete in triathlons and marathons. I compete in 4 to 5 races a year. In 2011, I completed my first Ironman 70.3 Race and completed my first Chicago Marathon in 2012. I also enjoy golfing and reading.
I am currently a member of the Crossroads Runners Team from Old St. Pat's Catholic Church in Chicago, helping to eradicate poverty in Chicago. I became involved in the mentor program at North Lawndale College Prep in North Lawndale for the first time during the 2015-2016 school year.
I have been involved at St. Mary of the Annunciation Catholic Church and at Carmel Catholic High School. At Carmel, I completed six years of service as a member of the Board of Directors, and for six years, I was a member of the Pastoral Council at St. Mary's. I am a former member of the University of Illinois Alumni Board and am a current member of the Chicago Dental Society Mediation Committee. I am also committed to our community and provide support whenever I can, including having volunteered regularly at the HealthReach Clinic in Mundelein. In 2013, I participated in a dental mission to the Dominican Republic. It was a very rewarding experience. We provided care these patients would never have been able to receive.
