Nolan DDS is a second-generation Glenview dentist and is a lifelong resident of Glenview.  Upon graduation from Loyola University School of Dentistry “Dr. Mike” joined his father Dr. Jerry Nolan. Combined they have practiced in Glenview for 60 years.  They established a vision of optimal doctor and patient relationship.

“My goal is to provide optimal dental care in a caring, compassionate, and comfortable environment.”

In addition to patient relationships, Mike and his wife of 30 years, Jody (also a lifelong Glenview resident) have formed a strong community bond. Both are actively engaged in numerous activities associated with the Glenview community.  They have raised four grown children, Patrick, Brehgan, Keeley, and Morgan.

Dr. Chad Freund

I grew up in Chillicothe Illinois which is a small town north of Peoria.  My father, Tim Freund DDS was one of two dentists in town.  I attended the University of Illinois in Champaign Urbana and graduated in 2001 with a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry.  Throughout college, I was able to sporadically work at my father’s office which is where I learned the value of working within the community that you lived.  He was able to spend time every day taking care of his friends and family.

Upon graduating from the University Of Illinois College Of Dentistry in 2005, I knew that I wanted to find a practice that looked to develop that community relationship.  Fortunately I was able to find that with Dr. Nolan in Glenview.  Together we have been able to create an office culture that is patient focused through customer service and improved treatment options. 

I am excited about the future of dentistry because of the improvements in technology within our industry.  This allows better treatment options that are faster and more predictable.

After living in downtown Chicago for several years, in 2012 my wife Laura and I decided to move our then young son Charlie to Glenview.  In 2013 we welcomed our daughter Lily.  Through the people that we have met, we believe that we have found one of the greatest communities in the area.

I enjoy donating my time with various organizations.  I have volunteered with the Illinois State Dental society Mission of Mercy, am a lead organizer for the Dental Access Days. I love spending time being involved with my kids and activities they love, including Glenview Stars and Glenview Grizzlies hockey, coaching Glenview youth baseball and Glenview Patriots teams. Enjoying piano and dance recitals. For fun; I enjoy playing paddle a few times a week, walking and biking the neighborhoods with the family, and partaking in any local activities with our friends from the community.
