Paul Chaiken recently acquired the practice of Michael Barnett in the Concourse Office Plaza on Golf Road in Skokie. Mike is retiring after 50 years in practice. Paul and Mike have known each other for more than 25 years, as they used to practice together in the Wrigley Building. Paul then moved his practice to the northwest side on Milwaukee Avenue. He will continue to see patients there on a split schedule.
In addition to running both practices, Paul is a consultant to The Dental Advisor and contributing author of their issue on dental sleep medicine. Paul is also a member of the Chicago Academy of Interdisciplinary Dentofacial Therapy, and a former visiting faculty member of Spear Education at Scottsdale Center for Dentistry.
Paul’s father, Irwin Chaiken, has also recently retired from his practice in Calumet City. Since graduating from the University of Illinois in 1958, Irwin has been a member of our branch.
When not in the office, Paul enjoys teaching his daughters skiing and snowboarding. The next family trip is booked for Park City, UT. Pray for snow, and good luck in Skokie.
