Doctors > Dr. Rob A. Uhland
Hi, I am Robert A. Uhland. I am honored that you would entrust me with the orthodontic care for you/your child! My passion for dentistry started when I joined the boy scout careers explorer post when I was 14 and was mentored by several local friendly dentists.
In college I was drawn to the biological sciences and then health care as a career. I was originally from Wichita, Kansas and had to apply out of state for dental school. I trained at the University of Texas at San Antionio. I did a mini-residency at the Mayo Clinic orthodontic department as well. My formal orthodontic training was at Loyola University Dental School and I saw my true passion was creating great smiles for my patients. I practiced in Northbrook/Glenview for 25 years with a commitment to excellence for all my patients. I became board-certified which only about 20% of all orthodontists have achieved. But I have always liked a team approach to comprehensive dental care for my patients and was drawn to the outstanding practice here at We Smile Dental. The doctors and staff work tirelessly to continually raise the standard of care for their patients. This gives me the confidence that my straight smiles from orthodontics will be well taken care of.
Outside of practice, I enjoy spending time with my wife of 34 years, our four children, and new granddaughter. I am a sports enthusiast so feel free to talk to me about the Bears, Cubs, or White Sox!!
