Dr. David Hertzberg

Families of Grayslake Orthodontics


For the last 16 years I have had the honor and privilege of providing care for this community. I have got to know so many wonderful families and seen the kids grow up and some are now even starting their own families. I cannot express how rewarding this has been both personally and professionally. In the past few weeks My own family has made the difficult decision to relocate to Austin, Texas in August. The values behind Grayslake Orthodontics will not change with this transition, even if the doctor does.


I would like to introduce Dr. Ben Youel to all of you. He will be going by Dr. Ben in the office. Please see his professional and personal bio included in this letter.


Dr. Ben and I have trained at the same Orthodontics program and share same treatment philosophy. We will be working together for the next 2 months to ensure a smooth transition. Even when I am not here, we will be discussing cases and occasionally I will be coming in the office. Nothing changes from the point of your insurance or how the office works. Rest assured you are in good hands.


In the upcoming weeks, Dr. Ben and I will be in touch with your primary care dentist to reiterate the plan of treatment and ensure all doctors involved in your care are in accordance with the plan. Please feel free to contact us with any concerns or questions you may have.


I am comfortable in knowing the trust and confidence you have placed with me will continue with Dr. Ben. I also want to express my deep appreciation to my dedicated staff, who have provided me and my patients with attention to detail, compassion, and represented our office with a sense of pride throughout the years. Dr. Ben has already won hearts and mind of the staff. They all feel very comfortable with him. Our office will follow up and check anyone who has retainers. All scheduled appointments will continue, and even if you do not have scheduled appointments during this time and want to meet Dr. Ben, please feel free to stop by. I know all of you will see what a great doctor he is.


I wish everyone the best and can’t thank all of you enough for the last 16 years of great memories.


Warm Regards,
David R Hertzberg, DDS, MS
