Meet Dr. Hadley Thurmon, owner
Alpine Creek Dental of Elmhurst
360 North York Street in Elmhurst

How did you become interested in Dentistry?

I had an eventful childhood that involved more than my fair share of visits to the dentist. Additionally, I have always really enjoyed helping other people as well as art and science. I took a great course called Careers in the Health Profession that helped me realize Dentistry joined my passions into a career.

What led you to owning a practice in Elmhurst?

I grew up in Michigan and attended the number one dental school in the US, The University of Michigan Dental School. I chose to further my studies at the University of Colorado attending a Graduate Practice Residency. However, when it came time to start a family, we decided to return to the Midwest. In 2015, I purchased a dental office and renamed the practice as a tribute to our Colorado home.

What makes your practice different from other dental offices?

I have over 27 years of experience personally and professionally in dentistry. I also completed further training at the Dawson Academy, an advanced program for dentists, where I learned how to solve patient’s problems with predictable and sustainable results. And I continue to be active in multiple study clubs and CE curriculums.

However, my incredible team is what truly sets my practice apart. The care, skill and expertise of the eight individuals that I am lucky enough to work with every day makes for an exceptional experience for our patients and our team. Our team provides comfortable and professional care in a spa-like experience. We utilize technology to help us deliver the best care for our patients. Because of our high standards, I am proud to say I have been recognized as a Top Dentist in Chicago Magazine since 2015.
