Sam Calabrese, DDS
I grew up in Elmhurst, Illinois and attended Fenwick High School in Oak Park, Illinois. After high school I attended Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska and then went on to Loyola University Dental School. While attending dental school I operated my own dental laboratory and in my senior year assisted an oral surgeon in Bloomingdale where I learned a tremendous amount about surgical procedures. Upon graduation I was accepted into a one-year position as a resident in a downtown Chicago office in which I expanded my dental skills working alongside a group of my former teachers from Loyola. Throughout the year I received advanced training in endodontics, periodontics, and prosthetic dentistry. Working with these specialists was a wonderful learning experience, and because of this training I have always been able to offer my patients a wide variety of treatment options in my office.
In 1992 I began private practice in a busy Chicago practice. At this dental office I met Dr. McNerney and after working together for two years we decided to open a practice together in Lake Zurich. What a great decision! We opened our doors in 1995 and after only a few short years, constructed a building to accommodate the rapid growth of Sandy Point Dental. I have found the Lake Zurich area to be the perfect location for growing a dental practice. Our patients are awesome and present with such a variety of needs. A day at Sandy Point Dental has included providing cosmetic dentistry on a professional public speaker in the morning and helping a child understand the need for her first filling in the afternoon. Building each relationship on a foundation of trust helps our dental office stand out above the industry standards.
What I like about Sandy Point Dental: I’m able to provide authentic and professional dentistry. My patients trust me because we have a genuine approach to dental care at Sandy Point Dental. We listen to our patients’ questions and concerns and then find out how our dental services can meet or exceed their needs and wants. I feel connected to my patients and I’m looking forward to my next 15 years at Sandy Point dental.
