William E. DeWitt DDS, FAGD
Elmhurst, IL Family Dentist
Reaching out to help people began early for Dr. Bill DeWitt. After graduating from Northeastern University he taught biology while working towards his Masters in Special Education. Bill’s desire to improve the quality of lives around him led him to Loyola University School of Dentistry, where he graduated with honors.
Post graduate education included a hospital internship working with plastic and oral surgeons. His focus was restoring form and function to physically and mentally challenged patients. Bill was honored to become a clinical professor of Endodontics at Loyola, contributing and co-authoring articles during his 17 years of teaching.
Dr. DeWitt is currently active senior staff at two dynamic West Suburban hospitals. These affiliations afford immediate access to both medicine and dentistry and the emerging science of oral and systemic health correlations.
Bill is well known for his personal energy along with his rapid, precisioned expertise. His proactive approach to every patient has earned recognition in several published “Best Dentists” lists.
Dr. DeWitt credits his patients with inspiring him towards more expansive solutions. His philosophy simply put, is this: “Excellence and artistry in dentistry is achieved by utilizing state of the art science and well practiced skill. But sometimes, the fulfillment of a patient’s dream is the result of a patient’s focused vision and the ingenuity it inspires.”
R. Lee DeWitt (R.N., Office Administrator)
Lee was persuaded to leave intensive and specialty care nursing at Loyola University Hospital to join the dental health care team at DeWitt Dentistry, and has never looked back. Being used to acute care crises, Lee was not certain her background in nursing and pharmacy would be as valued in dentistry. However, along with an administrative and insurance oriented background, the emerging science of the oral/systemic health connection put her exactly in the right place at the right time.
“It is tremendously exciting to be an integral part of a preventive team. Dentistry is connecting the dots between excellent oral care and the prevention and control of serious conditions such as heart health, diabetes, and possibly, premature births.”
Because Dr. DeWitt is on staff at two wonderful hospitals, Lee acts as medical/dental liaison as well as in office treatment coordinator for medically involved patients.
“DeWitt Dentistry is setting the standard for total patient well being and I’m extremely proud of being part of that dynamic well care approach.”
