Welcome to the helpful, gentle, dental care of Rockford...

About Me


I am a proud graduate of Northwestern University where I also served as a member of the faculty. As a Doctor of Dental Surgery, I continued with my private practice while teaching at the Northwestern University Dental School.

For three years, I practiced in Florida, but missed the Midwest lifestyle. I returned home to Rockford in 1987 where I have been happy to practice dentistry ever since.

Having grown up in Rockford, I believe in taking the time to form meaningful relationships within my community.

  • I am blessed to be a father of three children and a grandfather to my grandson.
  • I thoroughly enjoy the outdoors, especially fishing and golfing.
  • I am active in church where I co-chair the marriage ministry and lead retreats.
  • I enjoy working with a fun loving dental team while providing the best quality dental care.

Dr. Grzelak has developed a staff that reflects his dedication to patent care and dental accuracy. They are excellent on follow up on dental health. Dr. Grezelak’s drive to do things right keeps me coming back.

I have been a patient of Dr. Grzelak for over 20 yrs. You will not find a better dentist who is as gentle, caring and empathetic. I have recommended him to co-workers, friends and family. My brother drives down from Madison because he is so impressed with Dr. Grzelak and I have co-workers who say he is the gentlest dentist they have ever been to. If you are afraid of the dentist you may want to try Dr. Grzelak, he is a cut above the rest.
