Our goal is to help you keep your smile healthy for a lifetime.

We live and work in the community. Since this is a family business, you are seen by someone who knows you well and has a familiar face.

Should you need dental services, we will always let you know the time needed and the cost of services in writing before any work is started. We encourage any questions and are happy to provide a consultation appointment prior to any dental treatment.



Dr. Joseph R. Ceisel D.D.S.

Dr. Ceisel grew up in the Chicago suburbs. He attended the University of Illinois College of Dentistry. Upon graduation, Dr. Ceisel chose to help the underserved population in Northern Arizona. He joined the Indian Health Service, and dedicated the next 3 years to providing dental services to the Native Americans on the Navaho Reservation in Many Farms, Arizona. Dr. Ceisel was proud to contribute to better dental health for the residents of the reservation – some of whom lived in hogans without electricity or running water.

Joe in Mexico with Rotary

Dr. Ceisel has been a member of the Wilmette Rotary Club for 20 years. In 2001, the Wilmette Rotary and Barrington Rotary Clubs jointly funded a project to outfit a small bus as a portable dental office to send to Mexico to provide no-cost care to needy patients. Dr. Ceisel volunteered to outfit the bus with cabinetry, a portable generator, X-ray machine, and a dental unit. Dr. Ceisel was gratified to learn that as of October, 2012, the bus was still in use and patients were still receiving dental care.

South America

Later, Dr. Ceisel volunteered for 2 trips to South America. One trip was to Guyana, and the other trip was to Venezuela. He was part of a group who provided dental care to the native inhabitants in the remote jungles of those countries.

In keeping with their desire to help those who do have limited access to dental services, Dr. Ceisel and Marcia volunteered (through the organization Remote Area Medical) to go to Tennessee to provide dental care to the poor, under-served population who live in the remote hills of eastern Tennessee. The need was great—people lined up for hours before sunrise to have a chance to receive no-cost dental care.

Marcia loves to work with children and seniors. Her objective is to provide the best care in an environment that is positive and non-judgemental.

She is also interested in nutrition—especially the scientific research that shows that optimum levels of vitamin D3 have a positive effect on general health and well-being.
