Dr. Curtis

I came to Sycamore in 1987, three years after I finished my orthodontic residency at Northwestern University. I loved the town and people in this community instantly. I have never regretted my decision to devote my professional life caring for the DeKalb County community. My blessings do not stop there!

I have been married to my college sweetheart, Chris, for 38 years. We have four children and 3 grandchildren spanning from coast to coast. (Boston to Santa Barbara).

I enjoy running, biking, paddling, swimming, and skiing whenever I have time available. I live on a farm and enjoy the peace and beauty of country living.

God has blessed me beyond my boldest wishes. My purpose in life is to provide wise, skillful orthodontic treatment with sincere care and respect for those I am allowed to serve. I consider my job a privilege and a sacred duty and I will always be filled with gratitude for the staff and patients that make Curtis Orthodontics feel like home.
