My treatment philosophy centers around helping people achieve a great smile and positive self-image by providing safe, conservative, individualized care. I believe that each patient is unique with his or her own specific treatment needs. My goal is to always strive to provide the highest quality, comprehensive care and to do it in a timely manner. I feel that long-term happiness can come from having a positive orthodontic experience with good oral health and a great smile. Dr. Wardell

Dr. Bruce Wardell enjoys providing the highest quality of care to his patients in Glen Ellyn and Hoffman Estates and the surrounding suburbs. His goal is to help every patient, young or old, understand the value of investing in his or her own smile. He takes extra time to talk to each new patient who is looking to choose an orthodontist, not only to get to know them better, but also to answer all of their questions and educate them about the importance of their individual treatment plan.

Joining in that tradition, Dr. Wardell earned his Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD) from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry graduating with highest honors, Summa Cum Laude.

After graduation, Dr. Wardell served on active duty in the United States Navy for four years. While serving as a Navy dental officer, Dr. Wardell finished an additional year of clinical training by completing an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) at 32nd Street Naval Station and Balboa Hospital in San Diego, CA. In 2005, he spent seven months on deployment in Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom with the Marine Corps 2nd Battalion out of Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

He has been practicing orthodontics in private practice since 2009, following his six years of previous experience in general dentistry.

I am the friendly face at the front desk, where I welcome patients and give new patients all the information they need regarding treatment. I originally trained as a dental assistant and have many years of experience in dentistry and orthodontics. As a member of this team for ten years, Ive enjoyed building friendships with our patients and working with a great staff.

I moved here from South Africa in 2000. My family includes my incredible, loving, and hardworking husband, two beautiful daughters, a darling little grandson, and a new granddaughter on the way. I am so fortunate to have family living close by. When I have free time, I love to travel and enjoy reading. I care for the environment and would like harmony and peace for everyone.

I am responsible for all aspects necessary to keep the front desk and office running smoothly. I joined this office in 2015 but have a total of 44 years of experience in the dental field; I graduated from Robert Morris College and took the state boards to become a Certified Dental Assistant in 1975. The best part of my job is seeing the happiness that patients experience upon the completion of their treatment and the change it makes in their lives with their new smile.

I have been married to my husband Ken for almost 38 years. We have two grown sons. Kevin who is married to my wonderful daughter in law Kelly and our youngest son Frank and his lovely girlfriend Laura. As of this moment, we have not had the pleasure of being grandparents to any humans but we have one grand dog and three grand cats. Hey well take it! We are also the parents of our recently rescued dog Rocky.

I have been married to my husband Eric for 31 years. We have two children Eric Jr. and Chantel. We were blessed beyond words when our grandson Aiden came into our lives in August of 2017. He runs our lives and we wouldn't have it any other way! I cannot forget to mention our fur-babies, Buddy our puggle and Daisy our pug. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. There's nothing better than spending time with people who make you smile from the inside out!

I have the fun job of developing our in-office raffles and contests, and planning our out-of-office events to show appreciation for our patients and parents! Another part of my role as marketing coordinator is maintaining good relationships with referring doctors and fostering new partnerships throughout the community. I love meeting new people, making new friends, sharing what our practice has to offer! Our office is a warm, welcoming place to work; we are always laughing and enjoying each other as friends and coworkers. I couldnt imagine working for a better practice.

I have three awesome adult kids, Jessica, Joseph, and Martin, as well as two dogs named Bella and Rascal. I spend most of my free time with family and friends. I have a swimming pool in my backyard, which I enjoy from May through September. Im not afraid to say I love to binge watch a good Netflix series, and I love keeping active in the nice weather by biking or boating in Lake Geneva.

As a clinical assistant, I assist Dr. Wardell with all aspects of our patients treatment, including changing archwires, taking impressions and X-rays, scanning with iTero, and putting braces on and taking them off. The last part is by far my favorite! Its awesome to see the before and after comparison of our patients smiles and how much it makes a difference in their confidence.

I am the youngest of four and aunt to a nephew and twin nieces. I am currently attending Harper College with the goal of becoming a dental hygienist. When Im not studying, I enjoy working out, watching movies, and hanging out with friends.

Dr. Wardell and he's entire staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. From the first day I came here for orthodontic treatment, the amazing staff made me feel very welcome. Everyone is so kind, the space that they are in is kept in pristine condition, and it is just an overall amazing practice. I look forward to going to the orthodontist because of the affable staff that greets you from the moment you walk and the top class care you are given. I highly recommend this orthodontist if you are looking for one, you will NOT regret it.

With this being our initial meeting, the office staff was so kind, patient, cheerful, helpful and took a lot of time to help us. When meeting the Dr., I was shocked with how much time he spent with us. He walked us through every step, was funny, and took the time to explain to my son what was happening. We went in expecting to be overwhelmed and over charged. We left feeling informed, confident, and fully prepared for the road ahead. My son commented that the orthodontist trip was "actually kind of fun." While I was in the waiting room, I heard the office staff answering patient calls, and they were helpful and kind to EVERY patient. That's not typical anywhere any more.
