Meet Dr. James Orticelli

For the past 30 years, my team and I have helped to enhance the health of our patients and change their lives through high-quality dentistry. Listening to a patient’s concerns and being able to address those needs is so important.

There is immense gratification for our patients, myself, and our team when we complete planned treatment that everyone has been excited about. I love it when my patients take an active role in their oral health.

Education and Continuing Education

My passion for staying up to the moment on care techniques means my patients can expect and receive the highest quality and most advanced treatments at my office. Every year, I complete hours of advanced continuing dental education. I am continually reading technical journals and articles to ensure being up to date on the latest techniques. I have also been a member of the American Dental Association and the Chicago Dental Society.

Outside the Office

I am originally from Skokie, and currently reside in Antioch with my wife Sarah, who works at our office as a dental hygienist. We’ve been happily married for more than three decades and have two adult children, Alexa and Anthony.

I’m a true golf nut! I grew up working at a private golf club in Skokie and I haven’t missed a summer on the golf course since I was 13 years old. In the winter months, I turn my attention to golf club assembly and repair.

I also really enjoy cooking, especially Italian cuisine. I love to travel with my wife; she almost always lets me get in a round of golf when we’re away from home.

When it comes to my community, I enjoy being involved in making this area a better place for us all. I am a member of St. Peter Parish in Antioch, where I have served on both the school board and parish finance committee. I belong to a dental mentoring organization that mentors newly graduated dentists. I have been a fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
