Today, he is board-certified and just as passionate about using his education and training to help others achieve the smiles of their dreams. If you would like to learn more about him, including an interesting task that piqued his interest in dentistry, read on.

Why Did You Decide to Become an Orthodontist?

While some doctors were inspired by their parents or their own orthodontist, Dr. Bond’s journey to becoming a board-certified orthodontist began at IKEA.

At 18, he arrived at the 320,000-square-foot maze to get some new furniture. After fiddling around with the unlabeled instructions, tiny wood legs, and wrenches, he took a step back and saw clean lines, a beautiful aesthetic, and harmony. The cohesiveness and fluidity of it all was extremely satisfying, especially since the outcome laid in his own hands. Since he was always interested in engineering and architecture, he decided to combine these passions with his love for working with his hands – orthodontics was the perfect fit!

Where Did You Study?

Originally from Virginia, Dr. Bond chose to pursue his studies nearby at Virginia Tech. From there, he studied at the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. He completed his orthodontic residency in 2020 and became a board-certified orthodontist in 2021. Now, he has additional training in orthopedics and is Invisalign certified as well! Plus, he maintains active memberships with several professional organizations, including:

  • American Dental Association
  • Illinois State Dental Association
  • American Academy of Orthodontists
  • American Board of Orthodontics (Board-Certified)

Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?

In his free time, you’ll probably find Dr. Bond walking around the city with an iced coffee in hand or going to the dog park with his French Bulldog, Louis.  He also enjoys teaching an indoor cycling class in the city, trying out all of the newest restaurants in the Chicago area, and creating artwork for his home. Here’s an interesting fact about him: he used to race dirt bikes competitively.
