They moved to the Bloomington, Illinois area, where each was employed as the lead dentist in different practices.
After their son Liam was born, they decided to move to Northwest Indiana to build a brand new dental practice. The move to Crown Point has allowed them to be closer to Dr. Paul’s family in his hometown of Valparaiso. Dr. Rita is a native of Portland, Oregon.
For Dr. Rita, time away from looking after her patients includes cooking and spending time with friends and family, while Dr. Paul enjoys reading and working out. Both enjoy quality time with Liam and their daughter Maya traveling and experiencing new adventures as a family. They are also pet parents to a toy poodle named Molly, whom they've nicknamed “seven pounds of fury.”
Both doctors belong to the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Indiana Dental Society, Northwest Indiana Dental Society.
