Dr. Wesley Wise

Dr. Wesley Wise was first drawn to dentistry as a child in Houston, Tx. His curiosity stayed with him upon moving to Chicago and eventually it led him to Northwestern University where he would graduate with a DDS in 1986. Within a year, Dr. Wise had partnered with Dr. Brundage to create their practice in the same location that Dr. Brundage’s family had practiced dentistry for 3 generations. Upon Dr. Brundage’s retirement in 2016, Dr. Wise became the sole owner and has now been practicing dentistry in Oak Park for over 30 years.

As a family dentist, Dr. Wise loves helping patients of all ages maintain their smile. He’s constantly encouraged by the friendliness of the people in Oak Park and continues to expand his field of practice to accommodate as many patients as possible. His love of dentistry extends to teaching, too. He has mentored countless new dentists as they start their practice and is a member of the ADA, IL State Dental Society, and the Chicago Dental Society.

When he has some time to himself, Dr. Wise loves gardening and spending time in nature. He married his wife, Sue, the same year he joined the practice, and they’re celebrating over 30 years of marriage together. As a couple, they enjoy skiing, hiking and spending time with their adult children. The Wise family has traveled extensively through the US and Europe, and Dr. Wise dreams of owning an RV and driving across the US one day.
