A Passion for Orthodontics
Becoming an orthodontist was not always the plan for Dr. Marty Verbic. Growing up, he was drawn to chemistry and engineering, and he pursued these interests in college, earning a bachelor’s in Chemical Engineering. After a few years in the workforce as an engineer, he realized it wasn’t for him. He wanted a job that was more fulfilling. One that allowed him to interact with lots of people. One where he could make a difference in other people’s lives.
The answer: orthodontics. He shadowed an orthodontist one day and realized it was the career he’d been looking for. As an orthodontist, he is able to work with a variety of people and make a true, positive impact on their lives, one he can see with his own eyes. Dr. Verbic combines his people-person nature with his analytical mind to provide excellent and effective care for his patients.
Dr. Verbic currently lives in North Barrington. When he’s away from the office, he enjoys CrossFit, traveling, and supporting the White Sox.
