Dr. James Kaszuba
Early on, Dr. Kaszuba understood the power of a smile. The warmth, happiness, and confidence it conveys ignited his passion for dentistry. This was an incredible ambition for the son of a steel mill laborer and a stay at home Mom, growing up on the southeast side of Chicago. That dream became a reality at Northwestern University Dental School where he graduated with honors in 1982.
While retaining his focus on administering his patient-centered practice, Dr. Kaszuba served as Lieutenant Commander in the United States Navy Dental Corps, where he was awarded a Personal Citation for "meritorious achievement as a Dental Officer for outstanding professional skills, leadership, and ceaseless efforts" during Operation Lonestar in 2003. He also helped to provide dental treatment to unserviced populations in Alaska, Illinois, and Texas. Most recently he retired from UIC Dental School, where he shared his talent with dental students for twelve years as Assistant Professor and Director of Initial Patient Care in the Department of Oral Medicine and Diagnostic Services. Building on the strong foundation of a quality education and the philosophy of enhanced service, he uses his 30 years of diverse professional experience and ongoing education to provide each patient with treatment tailored to their individual needs.
Dr. Kaszuba has enthusiastically provided compassionate care for thousands of beautiful smiles and he looks forward to caring for your comprehensive dental needs.
