Meet Dr. Matan Farhi

I wanted to become an Orthodontist because I found it to be the perfect blend of my various interests and passions. I grew up on construction sites and initially wanted to become an Architect or Civil Engineer, starting my college studies down this path. However, I quickly realized I was lacking the enjoyment of working closely with other people. My mother was a physician at the time and recommended I try out some pre-med courses. I took her advice, got exposure through my classes and local office visits, and quickly fell in love with the field. I was able to use my scientific background in a creative way that made significant and meaningful differences in my patients’ lives.

I truly believe that being an Orthodontist is one of the most amazing careers in the world. My experience in the dental field over the last 7+ years has reaffirmed by passion for this field. Being able to see a patient come into our orthodontics practice and later walk out with a brand-new smile and newfound confidence is amazing and empowering.

In my free time I love staying active through exercise. I enjoy biking, hiking, snowboarding, and basketball. After a great workout, I love enjoying good food both in and out of our home (I am still working on the cooking part.) I have played piano and guitar since my early childhood and love to play and listen to music with friends. I love winding down by watching my favorite TV shows or Chicago sports teams. Go Bulls and Bears!
