There is no doubt that a dentistry gene exists in the Streitz Family because four of us have become dentists! The journey started over 60 years ago when Dr. Tom Streitz built his first dental practice in Joliet. Dr. Tom had an amazing passion for dentistry and spent six decades treating patients and developing close relationships with them over the years. Dr. Tom retired five years ago at the age of 82, but he still visits the office often! Please say hello to him as he enjoys catching up with his former patients and loves to meet new patients!
Streitz Dental is now run by Dr. Dan and his sons, Dr. Dan Jr and Dr. Dave. We are proud to be a family-owned dental practice where patient-centered care comes first. To make sure that we are providing our patients the best and most advanced treatments available, we have taken 1,000+ hours of advanced continuing education courses beyond our dental degrees. One of our core values is to be of service to those in need by donating our time and skill. We have participate in mission trips to Haiti, Jamaica, and volunteer at Illinois Mission of Mercy and the Will Grundy Medical Clinic, providing free dental care to members of our own community.
We made some exciting upgrades to our clinics in the past year!
In our Joliet office, we remodeled the entire space from floor to ceiling. The remodel included making the space more comfortable for patients and staff, incorporating new equipment in all treatment rooms, and adding a state-of-the-art lab, CBCT 3D image capture, digital scanning, and new sterilization center.
In Plainfield, we built a brand new state-of-the-art dental clinic. The space was designed to provide an excellent dental experience with new equipment and amme in all treatment rooms.

“Provide exceptional dental care while building trusting long-lasting relationships.”
