Dr. Aleksander Orlik
Dr. Orlik graduated from Indiana University School of Dentistry with his dental degree and quickly realized that he loved dentistry because you can approach it in many ways. He continues to learn more about the profession and has completed hundreds of hours of continuing education courses in cosmetic dentistry, implant dentistry, Invisalign, orthodontics, and more. His favorite part is cosmetic dentistry because nothing compares to seeing his patients smile for the first time in years – especially when they shed a tear, or a few! Dr. Orlik is also looking forward to working alongside Dr. Rothchild every day and learning from his tremendous wealth of knowledge and experience.
An avid volunteer, Dr. Orlik has spent time traveling through South America providing donated dental care to underserved populations. One of his most remarkable experiences was following the completion of his dental degree when he was volunteering in the jungles of Bolivia. He took an impromptu detour to volunteer in Pedernales, Ecuador for a month after the devasting earthquake that rattled the coast in 2016. It was an eye-opening and transformative experience for him because of how fast he had to adapt to speaking Spanish, the new culture, and working in a different environment (MacGyver-ing it!). Be sure to ask him about this incredible experience and how it changed his life outlook when you meet him!
Outside of the office, Dr. Orlik loves to spend his free time with his beautiful wife and their newborn son. He also has quite the adventurous spirit and enjoys traveling and being in the mountains. He has traveled to Machu Picchu in Peru, completed the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal, and even summitted Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa. When he isn’t busy with his growing family or traveling the world, he also likes to pursue music.
