History of the Practice

The practice was started in 1976 by doctors James J. Chorzempa and James R. Ziah. They built and nurtured the practice over 40 years into one of the most respected and professional dental practices in Illinois. Drs. Chorzempa and Ziah looked long and hard to find qualified dentists to continue taking excellence care of their patients. They found this in Drs. Kennedy and Limardi. All four doctors have similar values when it comes to practicing dentistry. They treat their patients like they would their own family.  It was a seamless transition.  Drs. Chorzempa and Ziah are enjoying retirement, and Drs. Kennedy and Limardi are loving providing quality dental care in their new office!
