Greenwood Dental Care’s History

Grounded in excellent care from experienced dental professionals, Greenwood Dental Care's rich history includes leadership from dentists whose legacy lives on through the care provided by the Greenwood team today.

Greenwood Dental Care’s practice was established in 1972 by Dr. Dieck (ret. 2015), Dr. Georges (ret. 2008), and Dr. Paiser (dec. 1989) as Greenwood Dental Associates. In 1988, Dr. Ness started at Greenwood and in 2014 he and Dr. Garland from Partners Dental brought over their Zion practice. Dr. Ness continued with Greenwood until he passed away in 2016. With the guidance and endorsement of his family, Greenwood Dental Care welcomed new leadership with the appointment of Dr. Kurziak. Both Drs. Kurziak and Dyme appreciate the Ness family’s confidence that the Greenwood Dental Care team will continue its exceptional service to dental patients in the Lake County area under this new leadership.
