Dr. Michael Jordan
Best of luck to Dr. Ben Marine who is moving back to his hometown of Moline, Illinois to continue practicing dentistry. Dr. Marine will surely be missed by both his patients, our staff and the Arlington Heights community as a whole.
While we are sad to see Dr. Marine go, we are just as excited to welcome Dr. Michael Jordan to our Smiles for Families family.
Dr. Jordan was born in Chicago and raised in the northwest suburbs.
He attended New Trier High School and was a James Scholar at the University of Illinois, Champaign Urbana where he received a bachelor of science degree. He is a 1973 Graduate of the University of Illinois College of Dentistry where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.
Dr. Jordan has received advanced training in cosmetic dentistry, sleep dentistry, and CAD/CAM dentistry. He has served as dental director for two Chicago area long term care facilities.
Dr. Jordan enjoys golf, guitar, piano, scuba diving, yoga, and day long bike trail rides. He is a member of the Chicago Dental Society, the Illinois State Dental Society, and a Life Member of the American Dental Association.
Dr. Jordan is committed to emphasizing to his patients the connection between oral health and total health and longevity.
Dr. Alan J. Moltz
A graduate of Washington University and the University of Illinois Dental School, Dr. Moltz has been practicing dentistry for 29 years. In 2007, he received a fellowship at the Academy of General Dentistry and has advanced training in implants, root canals, and bite function. Dr. Moltz’s strengths are his multifaceted experience in dentistry including CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing), porcelain bonded dentistry, root canals, surgery, implants, and restoring complex cases. He feels he is a good communicator and educator, which helps patients understand and assume responsibility for their oral health.
Dr. Moltz currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Alpha Omega (AO) International Dental Fraternity. This organization has partnered with Henry Schein Cares and the federal government to enact the Holocaust Survivors Program, through which AO volunteers treat Survivors living below the poverty level across North America. In addition, for the past 9 years, Dr. Moltz has worked with dental anesthesiologist Dr. Michael Higgins to treat patients with special needs, a traditionally underserved population. In his spare time, Alan Moltz likes to golf, work out, and travel. “My favorite part of being a dentist is keeping people healthy by restoring and keeping their mouths healthy.”
