RACINE, WI, August 13, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dr. Mark Lenz is proud to announce that the next generation in his family has joined Lenz Orthodontics with the addition of his son, Dr. Michael Lenz, as an associate in the practice. Dr. Michael Lenz will continue to carry on a long tradition of oral care in the Lenz family that started with his grandfathers, both of whom were dentists.
"I'm so thrilled to have Michael join the practice," said Dr. Mark, who got his start with an office inside his own father's practice decades ago. "It's a wonderful feeling to have worked hard for 36 years and to know that my dedication to the community will continue on through my son's work."
For Dr. Mark, family is paramount and he's excited to work side-by-side with his son just as he did with his father all those years ago. Dr. Michael will continue to offer patients the same caring service and state-of-the-art treatment that they have come to know from Lenz Orthodontics, all while taking the practice to the next level.
Dr. Michael is a third generation dentist having graduated from the Marquette University School of Dentistry , where he also earned his Master's degree and certificate of orthodontics.. Dr. Michael's siblings are also dentists; "I'm very proud of my family tree," he said, adding that he's eager to carry on the family tradition. One of the things he loves most about his profession is the positive outcome that comes from treatment. Every day he gets to work toward creating beautiful, healthy smiles for each patient that he treats.
In addition to his own family line, Dr. Michael's wife, Mary, is also a dentist. They have a home in Waterford, WI, where Lenz Orthodontics has a second office. When they are not chairside, the Lenzes enjoy outdoor activities including running, skiing and traveling.
The Lenz clan is a tight knit family. Dr. Mark was very close to his own father and Michael looked up to his dad growing up, whose compassion for his patients inspired his journey through orthodontic training. "I wanted to be just like him," Michael said. "Like my dad, I was also very interested in art and science and knew early on that orthodontics was a way to combine them both."
Bringing his son into the practice has inspired Dr. Mark. He looks forward to the future and imagines one day turning over the practice to Michael, knowing the office will be in good hands.
For Michael, joining Lenz Orthodontics is a chance to uphold the reputation for excellence that the Lenz family has built in the community over three generations. "I want to work at my Dad's level of expertise and treat patients as skillfully and with as much compassion as he does," he said.
