Hi, I am Greg Matke, it is my sincere pleasure to treat you at We Smile Dental. My interest in dentistry began long ago as a small child when I would tell my mother that when I grew up I was going to be a dentist.
As I grew and learned more about being a dentist I knew that this was what I wanted to do as a profession. Since graduating from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry in 1996, I have been in private practice in the Chicago area. From that time on I have expanded my knowledge and skills through numerous continuing education courses including but not limited to Surgery, Implants, and Orthodontics. Through these courses, I have been awarded fellowships with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Misch Implant Institute and am a graduate of the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™.
I love being a dentist and hope you will find that at We Smile Dentist If you are our patient you will feel that you are part of our family.
Outside of dentistry, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our 2 children.

Helping patients understand their treatment and oral health conditions is something Dr. Magallanes believes helps reduce dental anxieties and misconceptions. She believes in patient-centered care consisting of disease prevention and patient education. Her goal is to ensure that each patient’s concerns are heard and addressed while prioritizing oral health.

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 orthdontics 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!!
