About Our Practice
Our practice has been caring for patients of the Villa Park area since Dr. Gregie first opened 40 years ago. Dr. Gomolplitinant has joined the team and our name has changed to Handcrafted Smiles, but our commitment to deliver extraordinary dental care to our patients remains.
We are located at 413 W. St. Charles Road in Villa Park, IL, at the corner of W. St. Charles Road and N. Addison Road in the same plaza as Hi-View Restaurant.
Meet Kenny M. Gomolplitinant, DMD
Dr. Kenny, or Dr. G, as his patients call him, grew up in Los Angeles, CA, but now calls Chicago his home. He earned his B.S. in Human Biology and M.S. in Biology at the University of California, San Diego and his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Midwestern University, College of Dental Medicine Illinois.
As a general dentist, it is important to Dr. Kenny to nurture his passion for dentistry by attending continuing education courses to stay up-to-date with the latest treatment modalities. He enjoys implant dentistry but has vast experience in wisdom teeth removal, Invisalign, crowns, fillings, cosmetic dentistry, and minimal oral conscious sedation. He is an active member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Illinois State Dental Society, the Chicago Dental Society, and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Liliann, eating, photography, and traveling. He is an avid sports fan and particularly loves basketball and surfing.
Meet Kenneth J. Gregie, DDS (Retired)
Dr. Gregie was born in Chicago and grew up right here in Villa Park. He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Loyola Dental School in 1975. He enjoys creating life-long relationships with his patients and tries to create a light, fun atmosphere where he and his patients can share a laugh and have those real conversations that help to cement those relationships.
Dr. Gregie loves learning about the latest techniques in dentistry and is committed to continuing education. He takes many advanced courses each year to enhance his skills to serve the dental care needs of his patients better and provide them with a gentle and comfortable dental experience.
In his free time, Dr. Gregie enjoys spending time with his wife and two adult sons, cooking, photography, golf, bike riding, gardening, astronomy, woodworking, financial investments, computers, handyman work, reading, chess, fishing, sports, and playing bass guitar.
