Dr. Adam Schraber
Hello my name is Dr. Adam Schraber, and I am thrilled to be your new dentist. The greatest accomplishment of one’s lifetime is how you treat others. I set a goal to teach, inspire, and nurture a comfortable learning environment that will encourage others to do the same.
I am a born and bred Minnesota man. I attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for my undergraduate degree and fell in love with the badgers. There is no experience like attending a badger football game at Camp Randall Stadium when the sun disappears, the lights shine bright, and 80,000 plus badger fans are screaming for their team until the game clock strikes zero.
I received my Masters of Arts Degree in Biomedical Sciences and my Doctorate of Dental Medicine all at Midwestern University in Downers Grove, Illinois. I lived in Downers Grove for five years. One could say I conducted my own Tour de Midwest as I ended up back in Minnesota to spend one year at a residency program conducting hospitalized dentistry at Fairview Hospital in Minneapolis, MN and then worked in rural Wisconsin thereafter. Now, I am a resident of Glenview, IL where my wife and I recently purchased a home.
I participated in several leadership opportunities while in school. One of which was becoming the President of the Dental Fraternity Alpha Omega. My team and I brought a newly created event called “Lessons in a Lunch Box” to the greater Chicago area. We taught over 375 1st-3rd graders the importance of good oral hygiene. We used special lunch boxes containing a carrot case that turns into a rinse cup, tooth paste, toothbrush, and floss. The Children’s Oral Health Institute sponsors this event nation-wide to illustrate and diversify how to teach young children to keep their mouths clean. The importance of community and family could not be better emphasized in teaching our future generations.
I look forward to forming a relationship. You are family, and I will take care of you as such.
