Meet the Dentist in Arlington Heights, H. Edward Vallely, DDS
From an early age Dr. Vallely knew he wanted to become a dentist. He showed early interests in drawing, math and science and completed scientific coursework at St. Viator High School in Arlington Heights. He then attended Ohio State University where he planned to apply for dental school as soon as possible.
In just three years of undergraduate studies, Dr. Vallely was accepted to Northwestern University. He earned his DDS in 1976 and received the prestigious Pierre Fauchard Award for outstanding academic clinical achievement. Dr. Vallely also earned an MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management.
In 1979, the Dentist in Arlington Heights, Dr. Vallely, developed and managed a successful dental practice with Dr. Menyhart and incorporated Associates for General Dentistry (AGD). Dr. Vallely has been honored with a fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry and has served as a member in the American Dental Association, the Illinois State Dental Society, the Chicago Dental Society, the American Orthodontic Society, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the Academy of Osseointegration.
Despite his ambition and academic achievements, Dr Vallely’s greatest sense of accomplishment and delight comes from his profession and his patients. He enjoys watching his patients grow in confidence, achieve a healthy and functional smile and learn to trust rather than fear dentistry. Also, as a sculptor of dental restorative materials, Dr. Vallely enjoys art and embraces his love for art with every restoration he creates.
Dr. Vallely enjoys being active and likes to spend majority of his leisure time at the pool or on a golf course. He also enjoys boating, sailing, scuba diving, skiing, tennis, biking, hiking, archery, hunting, target shooting and fishing. In addition to his active lifestyle, Dr. Vallely also finds a sense of relaxation in reading.
Dr. Vallely, our dentist Arlington Heights, has always been a Northwest suburbanite. He was born a mile away from the office, went to high school in Arlington Heights and now resides in the area with his wife, Linda and four children, Patrick, Megan, Sean and Shannon. Dr. Vallely will always call this area, “Home”.
