Meet Dr. Poldek

I love being a dentist. There’s nothing more rewarding than helping a person achieve a healthy smile! No matter if it’s a small process or a situation requiring multiple procedures, we work together to restore oral health and improve the person’s quality of life.

I’ve been practicing for almost 15 years and treasure the relationships that have grown with my patients. I enjoy getting to know them, hearing their stories and watching families grow and change. Caring for everyone in a family, from the children through their great-grandparents, and helping each develop optimal dental health, is a great experience.

For me, dentistry is the perfect combination of science, technology, aesthetics, and relationships. I enjoy the challenge of caring for people with different clinical and personal concerns, diverse goals, and unique personalities. Every person is different, each procedure requires a custom approach, and every healthy, beautiful smile is wonderful!


  • Bachelor of Science, Illinois State University, 1999
  • Doctorate of Dental Surgery, University of Illinois at Chicago, 2003

My education didn’t stop when I completed my doctorate. Dentistry is a constantly evolving field and it’s critical I stay current on new developments.

I’m a member of the CEREC® Study Club, the Galileos CBCT Mentor program, and have completed multiple Dental Spa and dental implant seminars.

At Poldek Family Dental, we’ve incorporated state-of-the-art technologies, including CAD/CAM and cone beam imaging, in the practice. We’re high-tech, using leading-edge processes combined with the essential human touch.

My team and I are here to provide an exceptional dental experience: we want people to look forward to visits and smile when they think of us!

Beyond the Practice

Originally from Ancona, in central Illinois, I now live in Schaumburg. When not working, my priority is time with my wife Meghan and our two children, Katie and Tommy. Both of the children are competitive gymnasts, so we spend a lot of time attending and supporting their events. We also love traveling and exploring different cuisines as we’re real foodies!
